I hosted three Oktoberfest parties using inexpensive spätzle makers. They made beautiful spätzle but the plastic handle on both melted. I researched and decided on the Westmark Spätzle und kartoffelpresse Press for noodles and potatoes AND the Kull Skimmer for Swabian Spaetzle/Pasta/Noodles. Both are made in Germany. I'm very pleased with both. The only negative is that some smaller spätzle noodles fall through the slots in the skimmer.
