What’s good about this product

You get what you pay for; the Imperia pasta machine sp150 is very well-constructed and designed for frequent use. The crank does not fall off, a common problem in other pasta machines of similar design and operation. The ravioli mold is a nice add-on.

The process of making pasta from dough is very consistent. The machine is also easy to use as long as you get the mixture of the dough correct.

The design is also so beautiful, it’s one of those machines you won’t be ashamed to show off to your friends or take to cooking class with you.

What’s bad about this product

The Imperia pasta machine sp150 can be a bit hard to clean. However, this is only if you don’t get the dough formula right. If the dough is too sticky, it will get stuck in so many places in the machine. When that happens, it can be a bother to clean because as you really can’t submerge the machine in water, you have to wipe it clean thoroughly before putting it away.

The manual can a bit hard to understand for first-time users, a common problem for Italian-made appliances that are marketed in the US. Fortunately there are a ton of helpful videos and how-to’s available in the Internet.

There are pasta making machines that can process dough that is not thoroughly kneaded, this is not one of them. You have to thoroughly knead the dough before you feed it into this machine. However, this may not pose much of a problem for old pasta die-hards and those who are really used to preparing pasta this way.

Conclusion

To sum it up, the Imperia pasta machine sp150 is worth having if you want a pasta making machine that you can use often and for a very long time too. The construction is sturdy, but like other pasta machines it’s not meant to be cleaned in water, just to be wiped clean. It can make several kinds of pasta and can make many more with the proper accessories. While there is a warranty for faulty parts, be warned that it will be voided if you use the machine commercially. Then again, with the way this machine is built, you really don’t have to worry about it breaking down anytime soon.
