What’s good about this product

The Roma pasta machine is really cheap. However, you also get what you are paying for. The machine is really simple and easy to set up as there is hardly any assembly to do and easy to put away. The operation can be carried out by just one person unassisted. Aside from spaghetti, fettuccine and other pasta you can also make other things with it like wheat thins and crackers.

What’s bad about this product Roma 6 Inch Traditional Style Pasta Machine

There have been various issues with its gear mechanism. It may be poorly constructed because there are numerous complaints of the gears breaking just after a few turns. However, others reported their machine lasting a few months, and others even longer. Perhaps this is due to poor quality control.

The machine can be used with a motor, but if you do this you will only be exposing the gears to further damage. The clamp sometimes does not work. Sometimes the rollers are not aligned when they are adjusted and you end with a sheet with uneven thickness.

Sometimes the cutter does not punch all the way through the dough and you have to separate one noodle from another. There are also times when the cuts are not even.

It might take some time to clear out the metal fillings that came with manufacturing. The instruction manual said to throw away the first batch of dough you run through the machine, however it might actually take up to three to four batches of dough to totally clear the machine of metal filings and grease. However, there is some advice to deal with this; aside from using drier dough, others said it would be best to wait for at least 20 minutes before cutting the sheet

Sometimes the hand crank falls out of the machine. It might be a case of faulty design.
