Eva, I have both the Atlas manual machine and the KitchenAid attachments. I use the attachments most

of the time because they're motorized. The manual was okay before I got the attachments but it's much slower--best for smaller amounts. It doesn't take muscle power--it's just tedious.
Before I had either I had a cheap imitation that looked like an Atlas but wasn't. It was lightweight and the parts kept popping out under pressure.
So I recommend an Atlas, with a motor.
