Takes more time than manually, and total cleaning nightmare.
Reviewed in the United States on May 15, 2018
I returned this product. Here's why: 1. Total cleaning nightmare. The leftover dough sticks to everything and clogs it, especially if you use any gums. There are too many pieces for the dough to stick to. 2. By the time you use it and clean it, it takes way shorter manually. It's just way easier to form and mix the dough by hand, and make shapes (using a manual pasta press, a cookie press, or even your fingers), and dry it. 3. Huge waste of flour, as the flour gets stuck in the mixing section, the extruding section, and the extruder screw itself. By the way, with homemade pasta, I would not even boil it at all, because you lose so much of the flour into the water, and the pasta is soft to begin with. Just sauté or fry or bake or even microwave.
