The Marcato Atlas 150 comes with one standard attachment that lets you easily create three different types of pasta: fettuccine, tagliolini and perfectly flat dough sheets that can be used to create lasagna. However, these dough sheets also open a window of opportunities because you can easily use these to make your own ravioli and dozens of other pasta types.

Thanks for sharing your knowledge. I just bought a Marcado Atlas 150…….look forward to using it. You mention how it should not be cleaned using water but don’t clarity exactly how one goes about cleaning it since it will be exposed to raw eggs? Any suggestions?
Thanks for your question, it’s a good one! The machine is stainless steel so you can use a small amount of warm soapy water if you have to, e.g. because you’ve got in a mess with wet eggs – but ideally your machine won’t need it. If your dough is the correct consistency it should work through the pasta machine and only leave a few small crumbs and flour dust behind. You can simply brush these off with a clean paintbrush / light kitchen brush, or even roll a cloth through the machine. I hope that helps you.
All the best. Julia
