The Atlas Pasta Machine is equipped to attach a Pasta Drive motor or any of 12 pasta cutting accessories that are sold separately. Made in Italy. Wipes clean with a dry brush or cloth after each use.

- Forbes
Solid sturdy construction of stainless steel and comes with hand crank, clamps and a dough cutter
It grips most kinds of counter tops well, meaning the machine is stable whilst in use, and provides a reassuring sturdiness.
Pretty much the gold standard when it comes to roller pasta makers, it’s constructed well enough to make it into your will.

What reviewers didn't like

More expensive than similar hand-crank machines
However, these colorful pasta makers are made from aluminum, meaning they may not hold up as well over time.
- Forbes
While it does have the ability to use other attachments, these attachments are sold separately from the machine, but may be worth considering a purchase
This classic model involves a little bit of a learning curve before you’ll be satisfied with your pasta.
