Hello - New member here from Arizona. The wife and I are in our 70's and looking at getting a pasta making machine that mixes and extrudes. With age comes laziness. I am considering the Lello Pastamaster 2730 which is very much similar to the older Simac machine from decades ago. Also looking at the unit from Phillips. I have read reviews, watched youtube videos and such. I would appreciate and user experiences, good and/or bad on these two machines, or something similar that may be much better.. Our Cuisinart food processors and the Kitchenaid mixer do great jobs of mixing and prepping but extruding specific shapes not possible with pasta rollers has me searching for an all in one.

Thanks in advance.
