Great result but very loud
This machine is quick and rolls the sheets well but the motor is loud, I am very surprised how loud it is. I am hoping it is because it is squeaky new and will settle down with use otherwise I will need ear muffs :/

Great little device
Bought it during the shutdowns as I’d heard how much better home made pasta is. It’s easy to operate and once you get into a rhythm you can make 500 grams pretty quickly. No issues with the machine. Appears to be well made and sturdy. I think you can get a spaghetti attachment as this isn’t standard (from what I understand). The only odd thing is the instructions say add eggs and water but I can’t see anywhere as to how much water. I normally add a tbsp or so if there is any flour left over after mixing and work that into the dough.

I love it and use it a lot!
Review Marcato Atlas 150 11/082020
I’m a professional cook soon to be Chef! I’m a bit heavy handed!
As i grew up wielding a spanner or a hammer!
I purchased Marcato Atlas 150 for use at home!
Before i got this pasta machine I made, rolled and cut my pasta by hand!
An arduous task to say the least! Especially when you have a bad back!
At school we used a Marcato pasta machine the same design as this one only larger. After some research I decided to purchase the Marcato Atlas 150.
I got it in May and have used about ten times.
The machine itself is very well made and is high quality!
The only negative thing is a relative minor one. I find the numbers hard to see....

Handle gets stuck
This machine has a fault where the handle gets stuck in the machine and won't come out. Apparently it's because they use cheap metal in the barrel that the handle slots into, but whatever the reason is renders the machine pretty useless. I used it about 10 times before this happened the first time. After a lot of frustration I got it clear and the machine worked 3 times more before it happened again. Would not recommend

A fantastic machine but don't buy if you're not prepared to maintain it.
I've had the Marcato 150 with electric motor for over 2 years now and it has been faultless. I use it regularly and find it so much quicker/easier to make pasta than hand rolling. Having owned a cheaper machine prior I believe the Marcato truly is high quality, very solid and very well built. Unlike many cheaper pasta machines not only can you take this machine apart (Almost fully stripped down) for cleaning & re-greasing etc but it is a necessity if you want it to last. And the process is fairly complex. Marcato give you instructions but if yo...u struggle with such things don't spend this sort of money, get something cheap that you can throw away without too much worry. If you have the patience to care for a solid well built item this will serve you well for many years I think.

Not last long
The gear change part is poorly designed and built. it will not hold much force at all. we only use it 4 times and it will not work any more. I guess this is what you get for less than $200 but it turns up too expensive for the past that we had made.
Cheap plastic makes it unusable.
I bought this and made pasta four times: good pasta and easy to use, although the comments that others have made about machine oil getting in the pasta the first few uses are true.
However, the cheap plastic wingnut on the G-clamp that holds the machine to the bench snapped in two on the fourth use. No wings - no wingnut - no G-clamp - machine can't be fixed to the bench - pasta cannot be made.
At $95, those four batches of pasta were pretty expensive....
I using this a pasta machine first month. It is so great to have my own homemade, organic pasta and lasagne . This is a fabulous pasta machine. Easy to use and easy to clean. Why I cannot imagine my kitchen without this amazing product.
I’m strongly recommending for people who love making a spaghetti.
Easy to use
I had always wanted to try making my own pasta and I bought this to give it a go. I invited some friends over and we made fettuccini and ravioli (cut and filled the ravioli ourselves as I don't have the ravioli attachment). It was easy to use, sturdy and we had a lot of fun making it.
It attaches to the bench easily, is very sturdy and rolls so easily. It appears well made and I'm very happy with it. It isn't something you use every day but it makes for a lovely Sunday afternoon cook up.
I recently read that someone put through spinach tortilla dough through this machine to make lunch wraps. I thought this was a brilliant idea and I'm going to give it a go on the weekend.
This replaces a Marcato machine which has been used weekly for 20 years plus but the old machine had a problem if the dough was a little too moist it would get stuck on the rollers and create all sorts of problems. This new machine has been greatly improved and instead of the rollers being smooth and shiny they seem to have a very slight matte finish on them which prevents this sticking problem. Every batch of pasta made on this machine has been a breeze. I would highly recommend this and congrats to Marcato for such a great improvement.
Constant mechanical breakdowns, on my second one and now its broken - handle stuck, rollers jam - hopeless rip off. Could never recommend to anyone. It is impossible to clean, cutter gets stuck in place, anchor comes loose all the time, very disappointed bad bad bad bad bad bad bad bad.
Marcato Atlas 150
I bought Marcato Atlas 150 Wellness pasta machine in July and totally love it. It is sturdy, easy to use. I used to own a Kitchenaid noodle attachment which is a piece of junk. Make sure you do not buy it. The product is useless. I used it a couple of times and it broke. My husband opened it to see and found out that the gear was made of plastic. It is a complete waste of money!! I love this Marcato pasta machine. I have been using it every day since July. I also used to own a Lagostina pasta maker which is made in China. The Marcato Atlas is way better product and it is made in Italy.
Fabulous creation from the Italians and that is why I purchased this gadget as I thought if it is from Italy and they are the pasta Kings, this machine would be excellent. It really is. I watched a lady making pasta on TV with a pasta machine and I decided to give it a try.. I make a batch of pasta with1 cup of half pasta flour and 1 cup of normal plain flour with couple eggs and little water and put in my magimix then knead for 10 minutes by hand. To make spaghetti, I put thru the rolling process x 3 on knob 3 and then put to 6 on knob for spa...ghetti and for lasagne I put thru x 3 folded on number 5 on the knob to gauge thickness.. My lasagne turns out beautiful. Gives a much better texture than the shop stuff:) All the components on this machine as well made. The handle is metal and I suggest when it is attached to example kitchen bench to put a little piece of leather or something where you tighten the screw to keep it secure. When finished, I use a little brush and brush off excess flour and some caught pasta.
I am not Italian, and have made pasta for the first time. Recipe that comes with the product is simple and easy. If you want to hide veges in ravioli or be creative with your cooking; I would highly recommend this product. Next step home made fettuccini. I would like to hear of any success stories of hiding veges in pasta recipes.
Fabulous little machine - simple, effective and inexpensive
I first came across this pasta machine while doing a course on making fresh pasta with Pizzini Wines' "A Tavola" cooking school in the King Valley, Victoria. I was impressed with how easy it was to use and how well it produced fresh pasta. So much so, I bought my own machine and it has certainly lived up to my expectations. It's also easy to clean - just a quick wipe with a damp cloth - and it looks good. Unlike one earlier reviewer, I haven't had any problems with the fully metal handle and, I'm sure, if this was a widespread problem a cooking school would not be using it regularly with students.
