fondant pasta machine???

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hello, I need some help here. I want to purchase a pasta rolling machine to use with fondant but do not know which one to purchase. I bought one from micheals but it did not work well at all. Which pasta machine does anyone recommend that I buy and why is it a good one? I want to use it to get super thin and even fondant> P.S. I need it because I have the use of only one arm and rolling fondant gets tough after awhile especially very thin fondant. Thanks eveyone. Cheffie icon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gif

I got mine at a thrift store - they are always in there! It is all metal, made in Italy and works like a charm... I think it cost @ $5.

A friend had the Michael's one but (sorry icon_redface.gif ) I thought it was sort of cheaply made..... I think almost everything is made so fast and cheap now that I would rather take my time to shop for a better quality 'gently used' once...

I find them all the time - I guess I should start picking up extras for my CC friends icon_smile.gif

Making fondant roses was so much easier using this.... then I placed the 'sheet' of fondant under a cut sheet protector and it kept it from drying out too.

Here is a bump. I wonder if the make electric ones? I will do a search for that and repost on here for you. I also have the same problem with my pasta machine I bought at micheals. and my counter tops dont have a ledge to hold the darn machine down. Urgh. Will come back later with a site.

I'm also looking for a pasta machine. Found a LOT on ebay, but not sure what I should look for. Do most of you just use it to make smooth sheets of fondant, or do you also use some of the attachments to make long thin strips (i.e. spaghetti, fettuchini, ravioli, etc.)

Thank you all for the input. Yes they do make electric ones but again which one to buy? I would prefer electric i think?? icon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gif Cheffie

As a rule, electric is easier but IMHO icon_redface.gif it is more convenient to be able to roll without taking up an outlet... that's probably just my funky kitchen, though.

The other thing is, on mine, there are 3 "slots" to put the fondant in... the first flattens and the other two either make small or larger strips and the handle is put into the side of whichever slot you need and then the handle removes, making storage much more compact. The brand name is 'Atlas'.

I am sure the if money and storage where no problem, the electric one would work better icon_smile.gif
