The Ratings

One of the best pasta makers I have reviewed so far. In my opinion Marcato Atlas 150 deserves full 5 star rating. Below you can look at detailed rating factors.

Price
★★★★★
This pasta maker goes for around 70$. I would say money well spend. It’s not the cheapest one but also not too expensive. For the quality you get, this price is quite good.

Quality
★★★★★
Marcato really knows how to make pasta machines. And with Atlas 150 it made a brilliant and flawless machine. The body is made out of chrome plated steel, while cutters and rollers are made out of innovative anodized aluminum that is health friendly. Authentic Italian Quality.

Maintenance
★★★★½
No big tricks here. Just clean it from time to time. Cleaning is easy and fast. All you need to do, is to gently tap the machine to remove pieces of dough. You can also use hair brush to clean any trapped pieces or put wax paper through the attachments in case you used too wet dough. I would advise you not to use water for cleaning.Your Atlas pasta machine can get rusty when washing with water.

Durability
★★★★★
Built to last. You should have no problems with Marcato Atlas 150. It is designed to last for many years to come.

Appearance
★★★★★
You can get it in red color or plain stainless steel look. I prefer the red one since it adds a modern look to the machine. Overall this pasta maker looks very nice and it will be a great stylish addition to your kitchen.

Versatility
★★★★☆
With Atlas 150 you can make anything pasta related. Spaghetti, tagliolini, fettuccine, noodles, flat dough sheets, linguini, ravioli… The only downside to this is that you need to purchase additional attachments. With the basic Marcato Atlas 150 you get attachments for making fettuccini and tagliolini. You can also get the motor attachment if you wish. But I think the handle makes your pasta making more enjoyable.
