Video review of the UK/European version. Looks similar enough:
Nitpick - Features description title says HR2372/05 which is the number for the red model.
[MOD: Corrected. We’re selling white.]
Is this item brand new or refurbished?
Is this any better, or worse, than the HR2357/05?
This is NEW as shown on the sale page under the price.
I have the original, bulkier model (which I reviewed on my blog, if you’re interested) and it works fabulously well, and is a breeze to clean up. If this works similarly - and it looks like it does - it’s an excellent buy.
My question for woot would be: do the pasta discs from the old model fit on the new one? I bought several, so it would be good to know if I could re-used them.
The pasta discs from the old model do not fit the Viva model.
It’s a smaller more compact model (ideal for smaller kitchens). They benefits of HR2357 is that you have more discs/ability to make larger quantities of pasta.
I’m going to use the fettuccine disk for lasagna which I know sounds weird but I think will work just fine… with about 5 minutes extra work. You lay the noodles out straight and make multiple plops of ricotta chz and connect the plops to avoid disturbing the noodles which will cook while the dish is in the oven. Should work, not going to win the blue ribbon at the state fair but will taste good.
I just found & bought the Compact Pasta Maker Accessory Kit- Angel Hair and Lasagna but there is also a Compact Pasta Maker Accessory Kit- Tagliatelle and Papardelle… $14.95 each, both with free shipping
If you already have a Kitchenaid stand mixer, a cheaper and more robust solution is to use the FGA food grinder in conjunction with the SNPA pasta plates, total under $70.
I have tried both ways - IMO these machines are way easier, with almost nil prep and clean up time involved.
