Ninety five percent of the population do not even attempt to try and make their own food from scratch.

This is something which should be of massive concern to people, as food is one of the most important parts about our lives.

Obviously without it, we would die, but also, it defines us within a culture, a race, demographic or even age, so by cutting off the link between ourselves and our food by merely picking up the nearest thing in the supermarket we are cutting off part of ourselves and denying ourselves and our family to enjoy the fully benefits of life, namely, good, healthy and enjoyable food.

Recently this problem has been addressed and large numbers of appliances and gadgets have entered the market to try and make the process of making our own food much easier and even enjoyable. Even though many of these gadgets and gizmo's are just out to make a quick buck, with many sitting in the back of the kitchen cupboard without use for the entirety of their lives, pasta makers are an exception to this rule and a great addition to the kitchen.

Allowing families to immediately connect with the food that they are eating, an already family favourite.

Pasta makers come in both manual and electronic varieties, and although the latter has been around for a long time, particularly in Italy where it has been a staple in kitchens for centuries, the creation of electronic pasta makers has led the resurgence in making your own pasta. Products ranging from the high quality, for example the Imperia Electric Motorised Pasta Maker and the KitchenAid Pasta Roller, to the more cheap and cheerful such as the Kitchen Craft Deluxe Double Cutter Pasta Machine and those made by the kitchen appliance staple, Kenwood.

These give professionals and beginners alike the chance to get involved in the craze which is healthy eating and getting involved with one's food, in an age where people are becoming afraid or horrified to even admit where their food comes from, or even worse, is oblivious to where it comes from at all.

The benefits of fresh pasta are massive and firstly include what they are made of, namely, wheat, eggs and water.

This simple combination is so much cheaper than the supermarket varieties of pasta (all of which are fully of flavourings, preservatives and E numbers that they can sit on the supermarket shelves for up to a decade) that the price of a basic pasta maker can quickly pay its way in households which need the cash what with the global economic recession.

The variety in the pasta itself and also what can be done with it, in sauces, cold or hot and in pasta bakes not to mention a large variety of other dishes means that this is one kitchen appliance which will not go away, and soon may become a staple not only in Italian kitchens, but also around the world.
