I have a small farm, selling direct to the public. I would like to expand into producing pasta, using our own farm eggs. For this, I am looking into a pasta extruder machine.
I have read that many of the less expensive models have various problems (e.g. plastic dies breaking, motor too weak for thick doughs). I am prepared to pay more (e.g. few thousand dollars) for something which produces a quality product, with minimum issues. I do not need a large machine as my production will remain small (e.g. 10kg daily maximum), but quality and reliability are important. After this, naturally I do not want to pay more than necessary.
Any suggestions or advice would be appreciated.
