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.

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.
