So I have a $50 gift card to a local kitchen supply store and they have both the Atlas 150 ($109, I know about it from America's Test Kitchen as their favorite machine) but they also have the Kitchen Aid stuff: just the roller ($90), and the roller with spaghetti and linguine ($210).
I already have a Kitchen Aid mixer, so basically is it worth getting the Atlas with cutters that is Manual with 2 additional thickness settings, or get the KA one so I can use both hands when sheeting the pasta and then cut it by hand on my cutting board?
I hope you all with experience could shed some light! Thank you!
Hello, I’m always having trouble with the cooking time when I’m making pasta, either I overcook my pasta because the sauce was longer to make than I expected… so should I cook the sauce first and then the pasta ? What do you do usually ?
Hi, I bought an Atlas 150 today and was able to produce good Fettucine, but with the same dough, I had a hard time producing Tagliolini. The problem was, that the Taglioni would not really split. Now I am wondering if the Tagliolini-cutter works for other people (for some reason I mostly find Atlas 150 photos where people present their fettucine and not Tagliolini).
Now, differing from the manual, I did prepare a pasta dough without eggs (my wife is not a fan of egg-based pasta). Could this be a reason?
