Pasta Machine

I'm Lakeland's greatest fan but this latest purchase was either a Friday model....or is utter rubbish and a waste of money. I'm an experienced, capable cook, but the pasta dough would not roll through properly. I tried with several different recipes of dough in case I had got the texture wrong. Things got steadily worse....and eventually the dough rolled round the rollers and disappeared into the guts of the machine. There's no way of getting it out so either it will sit and go mouldy, or I'll have to chuck the machine out. A complete waste of time and money I'm afraid.

Pasta Machine

Used a small piece of pasta to clean the machine as instructed by the leaflet; all good, the pasta took up the excess lubricant. Repeated to make sure, and the pasta came out clean. All good so far. Tried a larger piece on the machine's widest setting and it couldn't handle it. The pasta either gets stuck inside the machine, or comes out in two places! Pretty sure neither is intended. In addition, after the first pass the machine has started making a grinding/clicking noise as the handle turns. Seems I found out why it's so cheap. Very unimpressed. AVOID.

Have used this machine twice and it's literally falling to pieces. The pasta gets stuck in the machine even though the dough is good consistency. The handle falls out all the time and the part which makes spaghetti isn't attached firmly so moves about while you feed the pasta through. Overall it seems poor quality and I'm returning it.

Pasta Machine

I cook a lot, from personal gatherings to larger functions. I make a lot of pasta the old fashioned way, rolling pin and baking parchment. I was lucky enough to receive one of these pasta machines, or so I thought. Within a few batches the rollers where misaligned leading to the pasta sheet that was being fed through pulling to one side and bunching up. Sadly I agree with more of the negative reviews, it is sharp, the clamp is not sufficient and the handle keeps coming out. For it to cut properly the pasta needs to be put through the cutter thick and with plenty of flour, not good pasta.

Worked well for the first couple of goes, then became difficult to turn the rollers. Turns out the cogs inside are not hardened and just bend. Threw it in the bin after a month.

Pasta Machine

Imported cheap rubbish. Does not make tagliatelle, but stripes of still connected pasta. The handle constantly falls out, and most importantly by changing the width while drawing the pasta out, it cut me really deep on my thumb. Even trying to avoid being cut, I still got cut, leaving blood all over the pasta.

I had allowed for the first time making pasta going a bit wrong, but with the help of this machine it has genuinely been perfect pasta every time. And it is way easier to use than you might imagine!

Pasta Machine

It's easy to use but one must get the recipe right. Another review has already done this but it does depend on the size of your egg. Use one egg first, and then if the flour is dry add an extra egg yoke. Also if you are using this machine for the first time I strongly suggest that you make your initial pasta batch and put this through the rollers a few times and then through the cutters then chuck the dough away. No matter what the instructions state there is metallic residue on the machine when first bought. Once this is done, the machine is clean.

great pasta, but some flaws...by T J

Pasta Machine

I was given this machine as a present. As a very keen cook and lover of Lakeland, I was eager to try this out. It seem solidly made and operation is simple, but I had trouble finding an area of work top where the clamp would go. I found the instructions pretty poor for someone who'd not made pasta before, and I ended up looking on 't'internet for help. This notwithstanding, it made good pasta up to the cutting stage. The main problem is that the cutter attachment fails to cut properly, leaving me with a tangled mess and bad temper. I've experimented, but with no success. Am disappointed :-(

I bought this machine for my husband's birthday. He is the cook in the family. It was by far the best price and when looking at several they all seemed very similar. He had a problem with the first batch as the dough was too sticky, but once he got the hang of it, it works very well. He has often made pasta both, lasagne sheets and cut into strips. Good product.

Almost perfectby C P DAVISON

Pasta Machine

I bought this to make gluten free pasta. My first attempt was almost perfect - I made the pasta sheet a bit too thin before cutting the tagliatelle. Guidance on thicknesses would be nice. I also tried a small sample of fettucine which came out perfectly. You need to pass several pieces of dough through to clean the machine before first time use not just one. I was picking grey bits out of the pasta sheet to start with. The pasta dough fed through the machine without sticking at all. The handle does come out a bit too easily but you just have to press in slightly as you turn it. Recommended!

Good but would like more instructionsby Mrs peachey

Pasta Machine

This machine is very easy to use but would like to know what thickness to use for what pasta. Hat a recipe for Tortelloni but started off with far too thick and ended up using 8 as final thickness. So will try again but would like to know the thickness needed for say lasagne, canelloni, tagliatelli etc. I read such bad reviews about the ravioli attachment I am surprised that Lakeland are still selling it. I purchased the canelloni mould but have yet to try it out. Want to get the Tortolleni right first.

Pasta Machine

I had this machine for Christmas and have used it several times. For basic pasta rolling it is great, but when it comes to using the tagliatelle cutter, I just can't get it to cut through the strips properly. The leaflet suggests adding more flour to the dough to overcome this, but this hasn't helped at all. I'm not even convinced that the cutters are close enough together to even cut all the way through the dough. It's a shame because this limits the use of the machine to just lasagne sheets or hand cutting of ribbons.

The first machine we bought, it had 2 clamps but no handle. We exchanged it for a different one, it only lasted 6 months. The third one lasted 3 months. So we got our money back. We felt let down, will not recommend it and will not be buying from Lakeland again.

Pasta Machine

Lovely machine but watch out for the handle it constantly falls out which is not good when you are rolling the pasta. Not quite sure what is going on with the clamp it works itself loose so the machine moves about, thought it was just me but my husband has tried clamping it to the worktop and it loosens with him to. All in all a nice looking machine but I would not purchase another one.

Attracted by the money-back guarantee, I bought the Lakeland pasta machine to replace the very prematurely deceased celebrity-cook version bought in a sale. What a revelation! Sharp, efficient cutters and rollers. It's true the handle does come out if you roll too enthusiastically but it's intended to be removable so it's only doing its job. Thanks, Lakeland.

I have wanted one of these for ages and just received it today. I bought mine to use with fondant/sugarpaste. It works like a dream!! I just dusted my fondant (from the Renshaw for Lakeland range) with corn flour and it fed through beautifully. I'm so happy with this purchase; would definitely recommend, great product.

Pasta Machine

I was a bit worried about using a pasta machine and had visions of a sticky mess! However, using '00' flour worked really well. It's quite tough and elastic to knead, but it rolls well and doesn't stick to the machine. I use one medium egg for 100gm of flour, two for 200gm etc. Mine will not fix to my worktop - not enough overhang, so I use my table. The handle does fall out quite often. Suggest you get help if doing a lot - it's quicker and less tiring! I feed in the dough and turn the roller, my daughter catches it. Have made tagliatelle many times now - cooks in 2 minutes and is lovely.

Just bought yesterday made my 1st ever pasta and its brilliant, made lasagne no need for attachment just put through machine to setting 3 or 4 no fancy edges but who see's it when it's covered with sauce. Taste's just the same but no frills so why waste money on attachment.
