GLAMOUR tested review: Super easy to use and looks high-quality on my countertop, this machine made delicious, evenly cut fettuccini and wasn’t hard to wipe down afterwards, either.

Customers are saying: Rolls pasta evenly, cuts spaghetti noodles with ease and it’s overall a great machines – one thing to pick at, the handle – as it only slots in in the same way an allen key does – does pop out from time to time, but it’s easily fixed.
