    I do have a manual roller/cutter though I rarely use the cutter bit.

    A tip, by the way, for anyone else using rollers. You know you feed the 'roll' through multiple times, reducing the thickness as you go? Instead, after the first roll, press the first bit out into the last bit to go in to give one continuous pasta loop. then just reduce thickness as you feed the loop (which gets ever longer) round and round and round.

    I do agree about straight to pan, though I find makng it an hour or so earlier doesn't degrade taste, and does give a chance to ckean up.

    Thanks for the compatible die link. That is precisely the kind of info I was hoping for.

    Makes me wonder who makes the dies for Kenwood? My bet is some large-scale Italian pasta (extruder) machine manufacturer.

    That has to be ripe for automation - an electrically powered roller with a reduction drive to the thickness adjuster!
