The first pasta machine invented (at least in America) in 1906 and apparently it was made into the 1920's by Italian immigrant Angelo Vitantonio. This hand turned pasta machine was the first pasta machine patented in the United States with patent dates of Feb 13, 1906 and March 2, 1920. Angelo went on to start the Vitantonio Manufacturing Company of Cleveland Ohio in the Little Italy section of town. Vitantonio specialized in devices for Italian cooking into the 1920's when it shifted away from iron. The company then diversified into waffle makers and other gourmet cookware.
