Pros and Cons:
Like every other items, it has both the positive and negative sides. It is fully automatic that means making pasta is easier than ever. At the same time, it sounds loud sometime and vibrates a lot. Then, it comes with 13 discs to make all types of pasta. But the fact is it consumes a lot of electricity. Then you may buy this product from Amazon or Walmart, but it comes with the original box within the Amazon or Walmart shipping box. In spite of these negative sides, I still recommend it for its fast operation and the capability of making delicious pasta.
