The Simac hasn't been available in the U.S. for some time (except on ebay). I just have the six discs that came with the machine. At the moment someone is selling 22 of them on ebay, but the price is more than what I'm willing to pay for the two that I want.

Philips recently came out with one that's getting good reviews.

Premium collection Pasta and noodle maker HR2357/05 | Philips

The Simac is pretty easy to use, but a minor nuisance to clean. But still probably easier than to clean up than the mess I would make doing it with a manual machine.

If I had 6 kids living at home and pasta was one of our mainstays I would invest for sure! But I'm an empty nester, feeding the gang maybe 4 times a year.

LOL so I think I will stick to my food processor which only takes minutes (and yeah, longer to clean up than to mix) And then the hand roller which I usually get the grandkids to help me do - they love it! And that I don't wash, just brush it down real careful.

Meddle not in the affairs of dragons for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.
