Italian pasta machines enable you to make delicious fresh pasta at home that cooks faster and tastes much better than the dried pastas available in most shops.
A wonderful range of genuine Italian pasta machines and accessories are available in the UK both online and the better kitchenalia shops. With prices ranging from 20 to 300 for domestic pasta machines, there is something for every budget. Most popular are the SP150 Pasta Machine from Imperia, and the Atlas Marcato 150 Pasta Machine.

Most pasta machines come as standard 150mm wide with 5 or 6 thickness settings (from 0.5 to 3mm) and a couple of cutters so you can make tagliatelle (2mm wide) and fettucine (6.5mm wide). If you wish to make other pastas such as spaghetti, ravioli etc, specialised accessories are available which fit onto the pasta machine. Also available are pasta drying racks (stendipasta) on which you can lay your freshly made pasta.

Probably the best know brand available in the UK is Imperia with their best selling SP150 Pasta Machine. Prices range from 25 to 40 in online stores such as,,, and Accessories start from around 10.
The SP150 can be used in conjunction with the Imperia Pasta Facile motor, giving you a very affordable electric pasta machine for a total cost of just 50-60 (Imperia Model 510)
If you want true luxury then look no further than the Imperia Pasta Presto electric pasta maker (Imperia Model 700).
