The roller itself is only £40, whereas the set that has the roller plus 2 cutters (one for spaghetti and one for tagliatelle) is £85. On the one hand, I'm thinking it might be worth saving money and using the KitchenAid roller and cutting the pasta by hand. On the other hand, I've never made pasta by hand so am not sure if that will be tricky. I prefer thicker pasta like tagliatelle to spaghetti, so I am imagining it might not be too hard--but I'd love any feedback/advice you can offer! [The catch is that you can buy the roller separately but not the cutters, so I can't easily change my mind and decide I'd like the tagliatelle cutter, too, if I just get the roller now.]
