Pasta machine

Hi there. Can anyone recommend a good pasta machine? Not too expensive would be good!

All I can say is. If you have a thick kitchen bench, measure it and check the clamp that comes with the machines. My one doesn't fit over my bench or dining table so needs a second person to hold it. Pretty much useless. My bench is about 7 cm thick.

I took a long board, varnished it and attach my machine to that.

I have one that is branded Baccarat. Has been great so far, not that I use it as much as I should.

Go buy a g clamp from mitre 10. Not sure if changes are required or not, but think they work.

Mine's a Stevens one. My bench is just over 4cms thick and the clamp fits with a bit to spare. They are reduced in store at the moment to $29.99 (were $99.99 so a good deal).

look for a picnic table the fold up kind at the red shed for under $30 or keep an eye out at op shops . i used a $5 table brought from an op shop to roll it out . being disable i find this easyer

The Accessory Shop in Timaru should have these.

I've got the steven's one and the clamp is too small for my bench (stock standard kitchen bench) so I have to use it at the table which is a bit of a pain as the table is in a carpeted area. It works fine but the spaghetti comes out smaller than I'd like.

That's a great deal, I have a Warehouse one that I have had for years its great and I use it allot. Homemade is so much nicer and easier that you eat pasta more often I have found. Fantastic for stuffed pasta too, in fact only way you can stuff your own.

Good hints re the clamp thanks. I could bring in my outdoor table and cover it with something. It has slats so I didn't want the mess on the floor. have looked at the clamp and it isn't replaceable at a quick glance. Mine is a Stevens 'prepare' original price $99 and I paid about $40

buy an old sheet from an op shop for 3/5 dollars and put that on the floor to cover your carpet when you have finished pick the lot up shake out side and toss in the wash works for me
