After my first use of this machine I was ready to give it away and buy an attachment for my Kitchen aid. It was my first time ever making homemade pasta so I had zero experience with pasta dough, or this pasta maker. The whole experience was daunting. Rolling the pasta dough was awkward, and the noodles I did get out were sticking together and not at all beautiful. Recently I started researching attachments and gadgets to replace the Atlas. I read so many reviews and a lot of them gave suggestions about the pasta dough. I decided to give my Atlas one more try. This time I focused on the dough. I weighed the ingredients (10oz flour, eggs-2 whole eggs weighing 4.0 oz and 4 yolks 2.5 oz) to make sure I was precise, and this time rather than add water because the dough appeared dry, I kneaded the dough by hand until all the ingredients came together. Trust me on this: My dough seemed to be way too dry. But I kneaded through my doubts without adding anymore water and the dough came together perfectly. After letting the dough rest for about an hour, the dough was smooth perfection! I couldn't believe it! I set up the Atlas this time I anchored it to my counter top (I didn't do that the first time), and then began rolling the dough 3 times on each setting starting with 0 and ending with 6! The rolled sheets were a thing of beauty! I couldn't believe how different the entire experience was. Rolling was daunting the first time I tried it on this machine, but with the right dough, it was easy and effortless. In fact, I remember thinking the first time I used the Atlas that I needed three hands to even make rolling pasta comfortable. But this time, it was so easy and smooth, I rolled and passed the rolled sheets through the fettuccine and spaghetti rollers in less than 30 minutes. Two hands were more than enough. The pasta turned out beautiful and delicious! I'm still going to buy the 3 piece Kitchen aid roller attachments, but only because I think it will speed up the process. But truth be told, if time were not a commodity in my home, the Atlas is really all I would need. If you start with a good dough, the machine really does all the rest. Clean up is easy with a perfect dough nothing sticks to the machine. I love this machine, I've used it 3 times this week alone! In fact a friend of mine came over for dinner last night and after having the pasta that I hand rolled on this machine she begged me to host a pasta making party with her, her 4yr old daughter, and my 4yr old, so I am. I have no doubt that our girls will be able to roll the dough on this machine.
Since I have the old one, I can do a direct comparison with this one, and as far as I can tell the quality is still the same. There are some minor differences, for example the fingers that scrape the pasta off the cutters and rollers on the bottom are metal on the old Atlas, and this one has plastic fingers. The fingers on the new one are removable for easier cleaning. They are not removable on the old one. So that is a tossup whether this is better or not. It depends on how long the plastic fingers last.
My old atlas has thickness settings from 1 to 7. The new one has settings from 0 to 9. So I had to recalculate what thickness to use. I used to roll pasta out to 4 before putting it through the cutters. On the new machine I roll it out to 5. That seems to work.
Other than those items, the two machines are so close that the parts are interchangeable, e.g. the crank, the cutters, the clamp... they are all the same.
The electric motor is in a plastic housing. I don't know yet how rugged it will be. Some reviewers said that the motor burns out quickly. But I suspect maybe it has been over stressed. The motor does not have the same power that I do when using the crank, and it labors when I use the rollers like I used to.
For example, with my old press I would knead the dough by rolling it into a rope and feeding it through the rollers at the thickest setting. Then, I would fold the pasta back over on itself and feed it through again. I did that until the pasta was silky smooth. When I tried to do that with the new machine, the electric motor was really laboring hard. So I had to revise my technique.
On the new machine, I roll the pasta somewhat flat with a rolling pin before putting it through at the thickest setting, zero. Then, I change the setting to 1 and put the pasta through again, then I change it to 2 and roll it again. After rolling the pasta through setting 2, I fold it over on itself and start over at setting zero. It takes a bit longer, but doing it that way does not tax the motor so much.
There is one issue with the power chord that bears mentioning. The plug that goes into the wall socket is a polrized two-prong plug. You can only put it into the outlet one direction. That is supposed to guarantee that the hot wire and the neutral wire are connected properly inside the motor. The socket on the motor housing is keyed with one hole round and the other hole square to ensure that the plug on that end of the wire can only go in one way. Unfortunately, the connector on the wire has two round sides, and it will go into the socket either way. So there is no way to tell whether you have put the cord on correctly or not. The motor will run fine this way because the current is Alternating. But it could be a safety issue if there is a short to the case, and the lines are reversed. This is not a huge issue because the case is plastic, but be careful anyway. Don't get it wet.
It looks like a high quality machine, and time will tell how long the motor lasts. I took off one star for the power chord issue.
I make GF pasta with mine (my husband and son have celiac). I recommend using a rolling pin to get your dough flat enough to then go through the rollers on setting 0. After that, quick work. We dry ours and then eat when we wish!
