What Is the Difference Between the Marcato Atlas 150 and the Marcato Atlas 150 Wellness?
When it comes to the Marcato Atlas 150 Wellness vs. Classic, it is simply a matter of labeling. The Marcato Atlas 150 and the Marcato Atlas 150 Wellness machines are exactly the same — there is no difference between the two. The machines designated as “Wellness” are being rolled off the market.
Marcato Atlas 150 vs. 180
The Marcato Atlas 150 Pasta Machine is so named because it rolls sheets of pasta that are 150 mm wide. Similarly, the Marcato Atlas 180 Pasta Machine rolls sheets of pasta that are 180 mm wide.
The difference between the Marcato Atlas 150 vs. 180 is simply the size of the rollers. This makes the Atlas 180 slightly larger than the Atlas 150, but otherwise the features are the same.
