Viante has a Pasta machine that is almost exactly the same as the Faberware 100 pasta machine. I used the cleaning instructions and the recipes from the Viante Manual and they worked perfectly. Here is the PDF format http://www.vianteusa.com/manuals/Viante_Pasta_Maker_Manual.pdf
After using the Ronco Pasta maker for a few times I discovered a couple of problems, the main problems are that it's a bit slow, took as much time as it does for handmade pasta. The second problems was that cleaning the dies was a pain!
The Ronco Pasta maker is a bit of a pain to clean. I normally take the whole thing apart and put it in the dishwasher and that does a good job with most of it. Occasionally I will need to run it in the dishwasher twice. The middle piece has to be cleaned by hand. You can finish it off in the dishwasher after you clean out the junk in the middle part.
The dies are the real problem when it comes to cleaning this unit. You need to get a small wire to flush out the holes otherwise the dough dries inside the dies and they are very difficult to clean out. Just running it through the dishwasher will not work. I either use the wire or I boil the die for 20-30 minutes then put it in the dishwasher.
