rolling fondant to make little decorative things
not rolling fondant to cover cakes
i have my mother's marcato and i got the motor for it
i don't use it that often
it's a nice roller
I would buy a Marcato with a motor.
I've got a Marcato hand crank. I'm scared to get the motor because apparently it's got plastic parts and I'm NOT spending $100 plus for plastic. But seriously, a pasta roller is a must. Pretty much every time I use it and remember the days when i ddn'T, I ask myself: 'WHAT IN THE WORLD WERE YOU THINKING?!'
I had a hand crank Marcato and I upgraded to a motor model. Absolutely love it as I can use both hands to control the icing or the pasta. Use it more for making pasta but find it great for when I am using my cricut machine for the icing that I make for it.
We thank you for all the replies great info we are going to buy the mercato brand with the motor .
I got mine from boscov.com about 4 years ago and got if for like $50. I love, love it. I don't cover a lot of cakes in fondant but do lots of do-dad accent work. I think it fits all sizes of KA mixers.
