This pasta maker is a bit different from the others because it has a motor on it. So you do not have to have an extra person to work the hand crank while you feed the dough through the machine. However, everything else is the same, mix up your ingredients for the dough. Make sure that the dough is not so moist that it will stick to your pasta maker. Also, make sure that the dough is not too dry, or it will fall apart when it comes out. You can have someone watch as the dough comes out to make sure it does not get so lumped together at the other end that it does not resemble noodles in any way. Otherwise, this is one of the easiest pasta makers to use if just one person is cooking in the kitchen.

The first feature I want to cover is the fact that this pasta maker has a two speed motor on it. This makes it much easier to operate than the normal hand crank pasta maker. Not only does this make using the pasta maker easier but the pasta will come out a little more even because of the regular rotation that the engine has. The fact that it even has a motor is what caught my attention because most of the others I have covered are operated by a hand crank. Now, that does not take away from the quality of them but for people who live alone or who just like cooking by themselves this is the best choice for them.
The body of the Atlas Electric Pasta Machine is made of steel plated in chrome. This makes it sturdy and able to stand a lot of usages. The chrome plating just makes it look shiny and nice. Now, the rollers and cutters of this pasta maker are made of anodized aluminum so that none of the chrome platings touches the food. The front of the cutting wheels is removable so that you can replace it with other accessories if you want. So you get a very well made and sturdy machine that looks great and is extremely versatile. That is a lot to have a kitchen tool that you do not usually find all in one product.
This pasta maker has a clamp included that will keep it in place on the table or counter where you have set it. However, make sure to put something underneath your pasta maker to ensure that it will not scuff up the counter or table top. After all, there is going to be a motor running and the vibrations from it can make marks even with the clamp on. But this is not a major problem and the convenience that you get from this machine more than makes up for it.
Also if you tightened the included clamp enough, you would not have to worry anyway. That is the great thing about having a c -clamp, even with a motorized pasta maker, you do not have to hold on to it to keep it from vibrating off the counter.
Alright, one of the most important things about making pasta is to have the dough at just the right thickness. That is not an issue with the Atlas Electric Pasta Machine because there is a dial that regulates the thickness of your pasta dough. There are nine positions on this dial that range from very thick to the very thin. Adjusting this dial is easy, so you do not have to wrestle with changing to another setting every time you need to. I have had experiences where it was a chore just to turn the knob of a machine but with this pasta maker, it is so easy to do. For ease and convenience with getting the right thickness on your dough be sure to check this pasta maker out.
Another great thing to have once you get your new pasta maker has recipes to use with it. Well, the Atlas Electric Pasta Machine comes with recipes that will get you started making those great pasta dishes. The recipes are included in the instruction book. This instruction book will not only tell you how to use your machine it will also tell you how to care for it. That is an important thing to know since you want your machine to last as long as possible and with proper care, you will be able to enjoy it for a long time. Not all pasta machines come with instructions, so that is a major plus for the Atlas Electric Pasta Machine.
