Does anyone use one?  I need it to make ravioli.  At this point I am not interested in any cutter attachments.  I just need a roller to get the dough thin enough.  If you use one and love it, please let me know.  If you have one and hate it, I need to know.  I was looking at the kitchen aid attachment and there is a hand crank one out there.

Thank you.

Hi Beth,

I use this one.  Have had it for years and love it.   Works great without lots of fuss.  You can roll out a whole recipe for ravioli, or pasta in no time at all.

I have the kitchen aid attachment and absolutely LOVE it. It is very simple to use and the pasta comes out great.

I have the same one Brenda has.  It is very easy to use and you can get all kinds of attachments for it, including ravioli.  I hope to one day upgrade to the kitchen aide one.

I would suggest the Imperia brand, after lots of cooking classes, the concensus here (OH) was that the imperia brand was more reliable.  The Atlas Rollers are sometimes not milled evenly, then the pasta doesn't roll evenly and on and on. 

Imperia is usually found here in an italian deli/store or market.  It is usually not found in a Bed Bath and Beyond type store. 

Good luck!
