This pasta motor replaces the hand crank on any Marcato Atlas 150 machine. It allows you to keep both hands free during use, allowing you to easily collect and manoeuvre the pasta as it elongates after rolling. It also lets you position the pasta machine so it faces you directly, as opposed to being fastened to the countertop or table sideways (in order to accommodate the hand-crank). A bayonet fitting fastens the motor onto the machine simply and securely. This motor is very robust and will remain stable during use. Using the motor on your Atlas 150 provides a constant speed, which will reduce the time it takes to prepare the pasta and any physical stress on your arms and elbows.
Why we love it
'It makes the process of rolling fresh pasta much quicker and easier to handle, especially as the pasta gets longer and longer. It's also an excellent option for anybody with health issues that cause joint pain.'

About The Brand
In 1930, Otello Marcato made the first-ever pasta rolling machine in a workshop behind his house and sold them to neighbours on his bicycle. He opened a factory in Campodarsego, Padua, eight years later, where Marcato still produces all of their products today. Their machines are recognized all over the world for unbeatable quality. Their 100+ employees pack to 2,500 pasta machines a day and 250,000 rollers a month with an extremely low rate of defects, reusing most of the product waste in order to embrace a principle of ecological circularity.Shop Marcato
