3. I have both the pasta roller and extruder for the Kitchenaid mixer

I used the extruder for many years, but never really liked it all that much. The pasta roller attachment works quite well and pretty much the same as the hand crank model I also have without as much work. If you plan on doing a lot of pasta and already have a kitchenaid mixer, then the roller attachment may make sense unless you have an assistant or young child that can continuously crank the handle for you. Another way to up the volume you produce is to get a wider model.

If you get a hand crank model, some things to think about are how well the device clamps to the table, how easy is it to clean, and how wide it is which translates into how much pasta you can crank out in a given amount of time. The machines made by Atlas are quite good, are made in Italy, and some have the option of adding a motor later if you want.
