Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

With this pasta-making machine, you don’t have to be a practiced chef to achieve pasta that tastes homemade. It’s easy enough that children can get in on the action as well.
Our most important observation: no matter what shape you choose, the pasta comes out great.
There is a storage drawer where you can easily store the shaping discs and cleaning tools, at the bottom of the Pasta maker.
what I like the most about this automatic pasta making machine its beginner-friendly, you don’t have to be a seasoned cook to make a portion of good homemade pasta.
Instead of having to manually turn the handle responsible for moving the pasta maker rollers, you now have the opportunity to sit back and watch Philips Avance Pasta Maker do all the work for you.
Overall, cleaning this machine is pretty easy. The dough pulls off or crumbles into pieces you can wipe away with your hand, a towel or a cloth. Extracting dough from the shaping discs is a bit harder but not bad if you use the cleaning tools.
Compact and durable construction.
Using the machine is smooth and enjoyable. It is also easy to assemble and easy to disassemble.
The electric feature makes the machine much easier to use than a manual design. The motor also provides a more even flow which makes the pasta thickness more uniform.
As for the pasta itself, yes, you can trick it out with pesto or porcini mushrooms. But trust me when I tell you, it stands on its own, proud and flavorful, unlike any pasta you’ve ever purchased in a store.
Cleaning this machine is easy plus it comes with a convenient storage drawer at the bottom where you can store all the shaping discs and cleaning tools when they are not in use.
For a pasta maker that’s affordable, it packs in a variety of options
The pasta maker comes with a food processor which kneads and mixes the dough to the perfect consistency.
Amazingly, the Philips HR2357/05 can perform more functions than Kitchenaid KPRA or any other pasta makers in the market. It is a full electric operated pasta maker wherein you just place the ingredients in the disk and wait for your pasta to be made.
Philips Pasta Maker also has the automatic shutoff feature when the whole process is done. The shaft is also detachable to allow for easy cleaning.
I was very pleasantly surprised with how easy to use this product is. Pick a recipe, toss in the ingredients, push the button, add liquid, cut your pasta. Fresh pasta is awesome. The product is quite easy to clean once you are finished.
The machine is nicely designed and maximizes the space that is needed. Fairly narrow, the unit has a small footprint.
During my review of the Philips Pasta Machine it quickly became clear that this is one of the easiest pasta machines to operate.
The machine will add in several ingredients such as spinach, eggs, herbs, and carrots to personalize paster flavor. It is superb on speed, just leave all the work to this powerhouse. Surprisingly, its bottom side works as a storage drawer.
Specially designed cleaning tools.

What reviewers didn't like

Comes only with 4 disks.
May be hard to clean.
Cleaning this thing is its only drawback. You have to unscrew the top panel, take out the insides, and wash them. Then you insert everything back in.
Is four to five times more expensive than a manual pasta maker.
it’s extremely expensive price.
This has worked well with unflavored pasta made without eggs. But it has never worked when I have tried to make flavored pasta with eggs. I have followed directions and watched the video but still, the flour and liquid congeal inside the machine and nothing comes out. I'm going to the Williams Sonoma store and ask for a demonstration. I'd rather not return it but I will if I can't make flavored pasta.
Has limited pasta attachments
