    Pros: Works great; fun; easy; healthy. Detachable parts top-rack dishwasher safe.
    Cons: Takes a while to extrude the pasta. Clean-up not hard but takes a few minutes.

    Pros: Storage compartment in back of machine is very convenient, very tasty pasta, not too expensive.
    Cons: Very noisy.

    Summary: I had purchased my pasta maker online from Fortunoff. I found the customer service to be very good. The machine was delivered within a week. The first few batches of pasta made from this machine did not come out so well. It took a few uses to get the ... read more

    Pros: none
    Cons: Flimsy, Time consuming to make and clean

    Summary: My wife and I love pasta so we thought this would be a great bargain and it would be fun to make. Not only did it take a long time to mix and get the consistency correct, it took a while to extrude the pasta. There is a safety feature designed to turn ... read more

  • Not quite perfecto!

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: refreshing instead of box pasta, easy instructions
    Cons: takes longer to make than box pasta, more cleanup

    Summary: Although I'm half Italian and don't look it I enjoy good pasta. From fettucine to angel hair to gnocchi..I could go on and on. The Farberware Pasta Maker makes it that more authentic when made from scratch rather than the dried noodles in the box. ... read more

    Pros: price, size, features
    Cons: hard to assemble, hard to clean, hard to use

    Summary: I bought, and was disappointed by, the Farberware Pasta Maker FMR 100 because I thought I would like its features and relatively low price (approx. $100)--I'm a guy who doesn't have a lot of kitchen gadgets but this looked neat. LOVE: price, ... read more

    Pros: great pasta
    Cons: takes a while to clean

    Summary: Growing up my parents had a pasta maker that my mother found at a local mall. Then the price was approx $300. That was in the early 80's. My father still uses his today. So you can see why I was set on buying one. I searched and I searched ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: None
    Cons: Not easy to use, difficult to clean.

    Summary: I purchased this product because I love fresh pasta and enjoy cooking. I soon discovered that virtually every claim made about this appliance was untrue. Not only was it terribly difficult to use, but cleanup was an ordeal. The ad for this ... read more

    Pros: Great tasting pasta every time
    Cons: Not as convenient as box pasta

    Summary: The Farberware Pasta Maker will break you of your store bought pasta buying habits. As the saying goes, once you have had homemade pasta from this machine you'll never go back. I received this as a gift this year and couldn't wait to try out ... read more

    Pros: Really tastes good.
    Cons: Time consuming and Clean-up is a Hassle

    Summary: I received this as a wedding gift 4 plus years ago. I must admit that I only used it twice a year. What I do is make enough pasta to freeze 4 or 5 bags worth for the next couple of months. It tastes good as long as you eat it with in a month or ... read more

    Pros: Great functional machine. Great pasta opportunities.
    Cons: Difficult to cleanup. Homemade pasta is a trade off for the time needed to prep.

    Summary: This machine is rugged and works great. If you enjoy fresh pasta this is a great item. Be prepared for a good task at cleanup and don't let the machine sit post prep. The pasta will harden and become water resistant. You will then need dynamite or a ... read more

    Pros: Great pasta every time, easy to use.
    Cons: Cover comes off during mixing/extruding

    Summary: Works great every time. Like others have written, it does take a while to extrude one and one-half pounds of pasta, but it is worth it. Tastes great. My only one small comment is that the cover tends to come off during both the mixing and extruding ... read more
