Continuing problems with our Avanti Pasta Wiz

Our second Avanti Pasta Wiz broke for the same reason as the first. The manufacturers have used soft metal gears that can not take the stresses involved in rolling pasta. It seems we are not alone in encountering this problem.

We have not been able to make a single batch of pasta successfully with this machine before the gears distort, jam, and the mechanism can no longer turn.

This second machine was a replacement provided by the retailer.

The life time warranty is unhelpful if the core problem is not fixed in the replacement. We will be recycling the machines and looking for an alternative.
