The Good

  • Imperia 150 is made out of heavy and durable steel. No fear to break it.
  • For a reasonable price you get authentic Italian pasta maker of great quality.
  • Making pasta with this baby is simple. Fix it to the table, attach the handle and start making your favorite pasta.
  • Various attachments you can get for different pasta dishes. This can also be a bad thing, since you need to purchase them separately.
  • Cleaning is easy and fast. After use, wipe the pasta maker with a dry cloth and if needed remove any dough left-overs.

The Bad

  • Instructions are written in poor English. If you are new to pasta making, I would recommend you to go and watch instruction videos on Youtube.
  • Handle does not lock to the body and can slip out if not careful. With some practice you will soon get used to it and won’t be a problem anymore.
  • Machine is not washable. Keep it away from water and moist. After each use make sure you wipe it dry.
  • Clamp mechanism for fixing machine securely to the table, can make problems when not installed properly.

Conclusion

As I mentioned at the beginning, this is my favorite pasta maker choice. Well designed and build to last. With CucinaPro Imperia pasta machine you will get a piece of traditional Italian cooking straight into your kitchen.
