Big fail on assembly instructions
The disc has a small lugg that needs to fit into place when screwing on disc holder. This is not in the assembly instructions. Therefore it puts pressure on the mixing bowl cause it's trying to lock in and has fractured my mixing bowl. I have used it many times and probably just lucky it slotted in.
I like the practicity of it, and how it is easy to use, and all the variety of optiobs. The only negative thing that I can thought is the cleaning process, that is manual, and could be improved.
This machine is great, and it has more extrusion discs than most others on the market. Although I wish it had a disc for Lasagne, I am more than happy with it.
The machine works perfectly but after making the pasta a few times, I realized that it works best when a bit of oil is spread throughout the mixing arm first to keep the flour from sticking to the machine.
Made 2 batches of spaghetti, and both turned out great! Egg won't gp through the small bowl that you put on top, so I just slowly poured the liquid mixture through the slit. Which turned out fine. Can't wait to make more batches of pasta. Will try the other attachments next week. My only comment is its a shame it doesn't include some sort of lasagna extruder, hence the 4 stars. But otherwise I think it's a groovy toy to have in the kitchen.
Great Product !!
I looked at a number of different brands of pasta machine and this one caught my eye. I was pleased to see that it was also on sale, so I took a chance and purchased it. So glad I did !! I bought the new model - BPE0300-X. After reading the instructions and the info on this review website, I made my first batch of pasta - Macaroni- and WOW it was great !! No issues, just worked perfectly. I look forward to making other types of pasta.
Great product, except bowl keeps snapping :-(
I absolutely love our automatic pasta machine but we had a problem with our plastic bowl snapping, Bosco were fantastic to send a new one, but today our new bowl has snapped the same way the last one did which leaves the whole machine unusable.
It's a shame because the machine works fantastic and gives us perfect pasta each time. Is this a common problem? I still recommend this product because I think it's amazing, but would like my bowl to stop snapping. Would it be possible to get a new bowl sent out? We aren't rough with it, we look after it and always follow the instructions.
It would be great to hear back from someone.
Easy to use & gives a great product
Bowl keeps breaking under pressure
So much better than I expected
Followed the instructions to the letter and was rewarded with delicious, well formed pasta. Had a New Wave pasta machine before - results similar but the unit is much tougher. Paid a little extra and bought the mew improved model BPE0300X. Like the look. Family loves the fresh pasta. Recommended to anyone who likes to cook.
Easy to use and reliable results
I just bought the new and improved pasta maker...it really works..fettucine and spaghetti was delicious. Well worth the money...don't worry about the negative reviews...I was a bit sceptacle too....all good!!! The only thing that's a negative is that it doesn't do lasagna sheets. Have to use my manual one for that.
Once you get the hang of it...very quick.
Shame it doesn't make lasagna sheets.
5 batches of pasta later.....
We have tried to make pasta 5 times. At the moment the machine has shut down due to overheating??? We have added/taken out water, egg, oil, flour and have prayed to the good lord up above and not once has the mixture gone through the extrusion process. The mixture sticks to the "mixer" no matter how wet or dry the mixture is and goes around and around and around and around. The guidelines in the booklet as to how to prepare the pasta are pretty much useless.
it won't extrude the pasta and overheats too quickly.
Once u have made pasta with this u won't go back to store bought pasta
Love this machine, makes the yummiest pasta. Would never go back to store bought pasta after making my own with this machine. So quick to make and easy to clean. Highly recommend. If u make the mixture correctly then u won't have any problems and if u do the customer service is fantastic.
Just read there is a newer model coming out, so even thought have only had it 4 months it won't be the latest model : (
Great Product , but can be tricky to get mixture right
Love how easy it is , just add ingredients and press go . then cut off your length of pasta as it extrudes .
Only thing I will say is .. you must have your mixture correct , All these bad reviews seem like they have their mixture too wet , it should not form a dough ball in the mixing chamber , it has to be in separate conglomerates in the chamber .(ps the recipes supplied seem to make it too wet)
Great and fast pasta maker .
Dough mix must be perfect .
Great idea, bad design.
Was so happy to get this as a gift but after several attempts I have realised that it is never going to work well due to the bad design.
The mixing part is noisy but ok but the extrusion only works for the first half of the mixture - I assume volume is what propels the mix toward the extruders. After the volume decreases and the mix has no mechanical method to make it through the 'worm' to the extruders; The extruded mix clumps together after leaving the machine because the dies are designed badly and the strands of pasta are too close together; The recipe book and instruction manual are not very informative either; It is massive and takes up a lot of kitchen bench space.
If the machine had been made to make better use of gravity then perhaps it would be great. As it is - completely useless which is a real shame - it actually looks great.
It looks impressive I guess.
Too big, bad design.
Complete waste of time and money
Avoid this machine and look for an alternative. Its hard to clean, the motor seems weak as soon as the dough starts forming and you need to keep stopping the machine to get the pasta to feed through the worm. Also the recipe book is completely useless and it is entirely guess work on how to make pasta.
This is not worth the box value it come in
If this does not get pulled from the web, it's not worth having firstly if it's to wet it works but it all sticks together? If it's the correct consistent it will not come out without help you need to help it because it does not feed forward towards the worm that makes it come out!! I have tried with eggs, with olive oil and water non works I'm going back to hand made mix and then the old machine. It does not work the manual extrude button does not work out of the box, plus cleaning the machine is also big time. I'm not a novice in the kitchen and have cooked for many years.
I have heard of automatic pasta makers and always wanted to have one. I'm fond of cooking including making my own pasta from scratch. Pasta making by hand is very tedious process and requires planning ahead. My mum bought me one the other day. She gave me a new BOSCO Automatic Pasta Maker.
I am happy with my new kitchen gadget. It is awesome. It has 8 pasta interchangeable extrusion dies for a variety of different pasta. I have made spaghetti and fetucchini. The process is fairly simple: you just need to add all the ingredients into the bowl, adjust water/flour ratio and wait for the machine to extrude it. I found the process simple; however, it took me a few uses to fully get accustomed to the machine. We have been having nutritious, home-made pasta for the last few weeks. The machine also makes dough and biscuits, but I haven’t tried these options yet.
The Pasta maker is easy to use and easy to clean. It is very well built and pretty and good quality. This machine is great for our family because of the features and benefits. Have you tried it? Be like a pro with this machine.
