This was my first pasta roller I've ever bought. It was easy to put together, the only irritating piece is the handle because it falls out all the time. I think when I replace it, I'm just going to get the Kitchenaid kind, but those are pricey. This is good if you want to do it the old school way and take 4 hours to make pasta! Definitely not a fast way, but it came with 3 different pasta cutting attachments which is nice.
