Vivo © Automatic Electric Pasta Maker Machine
The Vivo © Automatic Electric Pasta Maker Machine is a purpose built electric pasta maker. It’s not necessarily the best pasta maker in terms of pedigree but it certainly does the job and we had no issues with its abilities. Others such as Marcato offer a 10 Year Warranty and this might be the telling factor in the end.

Review of the Vivo © Automatic Electric Pasta Maker Machine
The Vivo © Automatic Electric Pasta Maker Machine is well made and sits nicely on the work top without the need for a clamp. It has been designed from the ground up to be electric. Some other devices such as the Marcato have a motor attachment. The reason for this is that their manual machines are so good and successful, they didn’t want to alter them at all. So, instead they provided the motor attachment.
The Vivo © Automatic Electric Pasta Maker Machine is fairly new to market – November 2016 and so it is difficult to say how long it will be around. Certainly, other makers can offer a 10 year warranty and so this is something you may need to consider.
Using the Vivo © Automatic Electric Pasta Maker Machine is relatively straight forward. It has the settings you would expect which go right down to a very thine thickness suitable for ravioli and lasagne. There are 7 settings in all. The cutters are configured to make Fettuccine, Tagliolini and Spaghetti. They do a pretty good job as well.
However much we varied the past dough recipe (dry, moist) it coped adequately well. It made a complete cut meaning there was no need to manually separate out the pasta. It also didn’t clog up which sometimes occurs on cheaper models. This maybe due to the non-stick coating employed.
What we really liked about the Vivo © Automatic Electric Pasta Maker Machine in our review is that there is no need to exchange rollers and cutters. Everything is already in place and ready to go.
Overall, we liked the Vivo © Automatic Electric Pasta Maker Machine. However, given the competition from the likes of Marcator and Imperia, we would have expected the price to be slightly lower given these are well known brands.
