I love this pasta press because it's so easy to use and makes perfect pasta. Before I purchased it, I watched the KA, Williams Sonoma, and other videos on You Tube; the tips were very helpful and gave me confidence as a novice pasta maker. The dies just pop apart for easy cleaning. I didn't even have to use water to clean; the dough just came right off. My first attempt was the fusilli because I used Pioneer Woman's Chicken Florentine Pasta recipe that called for a hearty pasta. I also made the small macaroni and used in chili mac. This pasta press is fun to use too and I look forward to using it with my grandchildren.

I have been making most of my own pasta for quite a long time with the Kitchenaid pasta set. However, it is limited to long, flat pastas. When I received this attachment I felt like I'd won the lottery. Aside from amusing, very easily, I love homemade pasta and it's fun to make. This attachment appeared to be a virtual amusement park of pasta making. The first time I used it, I made the pasta from the recipe that came with it, and the dough looked and felt, perfect. After making a mountain of pasta, in every size and shape, available to me, I then went for the ultimate test, one shape at a time, flavor. I, very quickly, became aware that it really can't be cooked long enough to even get to a passable al dente, as it remained tough and chewy throughout the cooking process. Hoping against hope that it was the dough recipe, I used my own, tried and true pasta recipe and started, all over again. The results were the same, so consequently, I have never been able to use any of the pasta made from this attachment. The concept of this is fabulous, but worthless, if it doesn't produce edible pasta. I want, so badly, to be able to use it and if there is a solution, I would love to know what it is.

Comments about KitchenAid Stand Mixer Pasta Extruder Accessory:

This is an excellent attachment. It takes pasta making to the next level. I've use this for Ziti and small macaroni in soups and Mac & Cheese. Very easy to set-up and use. My family was very impressed with the results and the flavor is so much more then the store box pasta.

I'm in love!

Comments about KitchenAid Stand Mixer Pasta Extruder Accessory:

My first attempt at making spaghetti left much to be desired. The dough did indeed need to be very dry. Many of the strands broke apart when I placed them on a floured tray. It ended up tasting ok but I knew I could do better. There are so many dough recipes out there. Some say don't add eggs, salt, oil, water...others say do. I read about a pasta flour (00 semolina) and found it at an Italian grocery. It's imported from Italy. I found a recipe from Mario Batali and adapted it a little. I made rigatoni last night and it couldn't have come out more perfect! The dough was easy to handle and came through the press flawlessly. The pasta was smooth and rich. This is the recipe I used:
2 c 00 semolina flour
2 c all purpose flour
3 eggs
1/2 c warm water

I used the Kitchenaid flat beater to mix all the ingredients at speed 2 for 30 seconds and then used the dough hook at speed 2 to knead the dough for 2 minutes. I then hand kneaded the dough for about a minute, formed it into a ball, and wrapped it tightly in plastic wrap. I let it "rest" for almost an hour. This step is very important. Once the dough was ready, I placed the rigatoni disc on the press and started feeding walnut sized balls into the press and set to 6. Within 10 seconds, the noodles started coming out. Never had to use the combo tool to push it through and the wire cutter worked perfectly. If you fill the auger with dough balls, it probably will clog. I never added more than 2 at a time. The entire pasta making from start to finish (not counting the resting time) took less than an hour. I love this press and have a feeling I'll be using it AT LEAST once a week. There is nothing better than fresh pasta!

Fresh Pasta is a treat!

By 

from New Albany, OH

Verified Buyer

Comments about KitchenAid Stand Mixer Pasta Extruder Accessory:

The Gourmet Pasta Press Is a perfect Kitchen Aid tool to make fresh pasta. It's as easy as 1-2-3. The dough (which was too dry and crumbly per recipe instructions, so we slowly added small amounts of water until the dough resembled "play dough" consistency) is made in the bowl of your Kitchen Aid mixer with the dough hook and the Pasta Press is attached to the mixer to process the dough into the pasta form of your choice. Our initial batch of Rigatoni was perfect and tasty!

This machine is not fast, but it gets the job done very well. The built in pasta cutter is perfect for cutting pasta in your desired length. We placed plastic trays lined with wax paper on the counter directly under the pasta press, so when we cut the pasta it landed on the tray. We had employed three inter-changeable trays, so we could separate the pasta in single layers for cooking later or drying and storing.

First clean-up was a challenge, as there are press pieces that can be wash and some press pieces should not be washed. We figured that out with a learning curve of hands on maintenance. Next time will be better.

The Pasta press was well worth the investment. We hope to have fun making pasta as a family project and enjoy all those Italian meals together.

Good so far

By 

from Washington, DC

Comments about KitchenAid Stand Mixer Pasta Extruder Accessory:

Once I trusted my experience and instinct and quit trying to get the KitchenAid recipes to work everything went fine. Of course the overly dry kindergarten paste that their basic egg pastor recipe makes gummed up the bucatini dye so bad it required surgery to correct.

If you use their recipe add another egg, a generous teaspoon of oil and another tablespoon of water.
