, here's what I found on many of our Amazon orders:
Make sure that you're buying from that particular manufacture.
In other words, make sure it's really from KA and not some knock-off place with plastic parts.
I've had my KA Pasta set of three: roller, fettuccine and spaghetti cutters for I'd say about 25 years. I paid $99 at Williams-Sonoma Shop, long before internet shopping
I love it and use it often. To clean it I simply moisten a towel, and wipe it down. Pasta dough isn't very messy, at least mine isn't, it's pretty firm and sometime even just a pastry brush will do the trick.
