Here’s a Magic Machine That Makes Two Pounds of Pasta in 25 Minutes

Hope it comes with a gym membership

Pop quiz, hotshot.

There’s a button on a machine. Once the button gets pushed, the machine is armed. After the machine is armed, it takes 25 minutes to make about two pounds of pasta.

What do you do?

Here’s a hint: You push the button.

Capable of producing 13 different pasta shapes from bucatini to ziti as well as biscotti, the Viante Pasta Perfetto mixes, kneads and pushes dough through its discs in under a half hour.

Made from heavy-duty aluminum and stainless steel, the machine operates autonomously and only requires you to load in the ingredients, push a button and wait. Oh yeah, and eat. A lot.

Dishwasher safe and priced at $270, the Pasta Perfetto comes with a custom recipe book and instruction manual, but you’ll have to get the flour, eggs, oil, water and sauce for yourself.

And the gym membership.
