Best Electric Pasta Makers

An ingredient virtually everyone on planet earth will recognize and has likely eaten, pasta has been around for centuries. Though most people associate pasta with Italian cooking, it's likely pre-dated by the noodles used in Asian cuisine. Regardless, pasta is a dish with humble roots that's evolved into countless varieties, shapes, flavors, and iterations. At its core, pasta is made from mixing flour with water or eggs that’s formed into a dough and cut into various shapes. While this was done by hand for years, as technology has advanced so have the methods used to make a variety of pasta. While your favorite hometown Italian restaurant may boast "handmade" pasta, chances are they have a machine or two in their kitchen helping with some of the labor. And if you're a pasta aficionado, you can have one too! We went on a search for the best electric pasta makers and boiled them down to three of our favorites–check them out below.
