amazing attachment

Comments about KitchenAid Pasta Roller Attachment for Stand Mixers KPRA:

The Kitchen Aid Pasta Attachment is an amazing convenient, time saving attachment. Before this attachment, i used to make pasta the old fashioned way, by rolling it out by hand. However, this attachment makes it conducive to producing high quality noodles in a time efficient way.
The kitchen aid pasta attachment does three things: rolls out sheets of dough, slices fettuccine noodles, and slices linguine.

Ease of Cleaning
the kitchen aid pasta attachment is very easy to clean. once removed from the mixer, the pieces can be easily washed and sanitized in the sink using hot water and dish soap.

Durability
the pieces to the attachments are very durable and sturdy. they are of high quality and worth the investment. The kitchen aid attachment may be pricey but it is worth the price to have the convenience.

Design
I feel that this attachment was designed very well; it works really well and it is of good quality.

Comments about KitchenAid Pasta Roller Attachment for Stand Mixers KPRA:

I've used other cheap, hand held pasta rollers in the past and they break so easily it's almost not worth the few bucks I paid for them. I splurged a little on these attachments, and I'm so happy I did. It makes it much easier to make homemade pasta. I only just bought it, so I can't say much about how it holds up, but I can positively say I think it will last a long time; it seems very durable.

Ease of Cleaning
You can't wash it with water, so you have to wait for the strings of pasta to dry before brushing it out, which I don't really like (it would be easier to just put it in the dishwasher), but it works more easily than I would have thought, and the brush that comes with it works pretty well.

Durability
I can't say much about this, but I'm predicting this will last a long time, just by the way it's made and how sturdy it seems.

Design
It's easy to attach this to the Kitchenaid blender, and it's extremely easy to use. I don't think they should change a thing about the design.

If you have a KitchenAid mixer - You need this!

By 

from USA

Comments about KitchenAid Pasta Roller Attachment for Stand Mixers KPRA:

We love our pasta attachment for the KitchenAid mixer. It makes creating any type of noodle, from fettuccine to lasagna, a breeze. The actual roller has multiple thickness sizes (that are simple to adjust), so if you want to go super thin for spaghetti or thick for lasagna, you can do it all.

Since the roller is powered by your mixer, all you have to do is work the dough into small balls and the attachment gets the pasta to the correct thickness - that means no more tired arms from rolling out the dough manually. It's a life-saver!

I love this product and whenever I hear someone has purchased a KitchenAid mixer, I always suggest getting the pasta attachment. I highly recommend the KitchenAid pasta attachment.

Fun and easy

By

Comments about KitchenAid Pasta Roller Attachment for Stand Mixers KPRA:

This was a gift, and we have used it several times to make fun pasta dishes. I'm not sure we would have been willing to pay for it ourselves, but it is a fun thing to have in the kitchen. It doesn't require as much work or coordination as manual pasta makers.

Kitchen Aid Pasta maker GREAT!!!

By 

from Salisbury, NC

Comments about KitchenAid Pasta Roller Attachment for Stand Mixers KPRA:

 

 

 Shortly after we got the Stand mixer we had to have the 3 set pasta maker . This if fantastic!! What a way to WOW your guest over for dinner... with home made pasta! Now it does take a little while mixing the dough and running it  but, I have found that you can make it ahead of time and dry it it saves alot of time . So about once a month we have a pasta day and make all sorts of pasta and dry it .

     We have made pesto pasta spinach no egg you name it we have made it ! As long as you keep it in a air tight container it will last for a while .I put it in a zip lock and then in a air tight Rubber made container.When you cook it it takes just minutes . Less than 3 minutes in very salted water perfect every time! if you have a Kitchen Aid this is very well worth the money. Why do use your stand mixer in all the ways you can? I mean it is not cheap so... why not get your monies worth?

         You have to get this 3 piece set!!!

Comments about KitchenAid Pasta Roller Attachment for Stand Mixers KPRA:

I love making pasta with the Kitchen Aid Pasta Attachments.  it is so easy and the results always turn out great.  once you master the dough recipe the rest is so simple.  we make ravioli and are able to fill with whatever we like.  saves so much time over the hand crank model.  a great investment for any Kitchen Aid Mixer owner!

LOVE the KitchenAid Pasta Maker accessories!!

By 

from Santa Clarita, CA

Comments about KitchenAid Pasta Roller Attachment for Stand Mixers KPRA:

I received the KitchenAid Pasta Maker Accessories for my stand mixer as a gift. I LOVE them!!! I've used all the various pasta sizes and every one works like a charm. The attachments are extremely easy to use. After mixing the pasta dough briefly in my mixer, I can use the attachments to transform the dough into whatever pasta I'm in the mood for. The strands of spaghetti and linguini come out so nicely and I love the roller for ravioli. It's really nice to be able to easily make home made pasta.

I found another creative use for the roller and spaghetti attachments. I made a Harry Potter broomstick cake for my daughter's 8th birthday. To make the chocolate fondant look like broom bristles I fed the pieces of fondant through the pasta roller until it was nice and thin and then fed it through the spaghetti attachment. We had perfectly formed broom bristles which dried nicely on the cake.

I've had terrific luck with KitchenAid products. It's always a treat to receive a KitchenAid product because I know it will give me quality  performance and it will last!

KitchenAid Pasta Maker So Easy!

By 

from Bronx, NY

Comments about KitchenAid Pasta Roller Attachment for Stand Mixers KPRA:

I have to always start out by saying that I absolutely love the kitchenaid brand. When I purchase a kitchenaid product I know that I am getting a quality product that will last for years and years to come. I love my mixer and was so excited to get attachments. I got the pasta maker to make my own pasta. I have always wanted to make my own pasta but was always intimidated by the pasta machine. When I found out that kitchenaid had an attachment I decided to try it. The product is easy to mount and easy to use. I found a simple pasta recipe and made the dough really quick. I used the pasta machine to shape the pasta just right. It is easy to use and I was surprised that it didn't stick. I made some great tasting pasta for my first try. Since it was so easy to do I tried making different pastas and it worked every time. The attachment is easy to take about and even easier to just hand wash. The pasta taste so much better than store bought.

Making homemade pasta is so easy!

By 

from Independence, KS

Comments about KitchenAid Pasta Roller Attachment for Stand Mixers KPRA:

I was given the KitchenAid Pasta Maker Accessory Kit for my stand mixer a couple years ago and have really enjoyed using it so very much. I have made homemade spaghetti, but even more often, homemade fettucini for my homemade alfredo sauce. My boyfriend does not particually care for pasta, but when I make my homemade noodles using this attachment and my homemade sauce, he really does love it and claims it is one of his favorite meals that I make. Homemade pasta does make a difference in cases like these, and this pasta maker is great for making all kinds of pastas right at home.

To use it, you first roll your dough through the first step is a roller which flattens it out into sheets of dough. From there you run it back through, but this time using one of the various cutters, depending on which shape of noodle that you would like to make out of the dough. It is really very easy to use, even if at first if you are not used to making homemade dough and have to play around to get the right consistency for the best results. I would recommend this to any person that has a KitchenAid stand mixer and enjoys creating meals from scratch.

Even a novice can do it!

By 

from Santa Cruz, CA

Comments about KitchenAid Pasta Roller Attachment for Stand Mixers KPRA:

Disclaimer: I'm am not an experienced cook. Plus, I've only used a real pasta maker once before trying this one (in High School cooking class). So, needless to say I don't really have anything to compare this pasta maker to. But, what I can do is talk about my experience as a novice.

First and foremost, having fresh pasta was new to us, and Wow! It is SO good! Even if you have no experience making fresh pasta, don't be intimidated. It takes a little getting used to but the pay off is well worth the effort. 

Getting the pasta dough just right was a little tricky at first. I had to tweak the amount of water and flour before I got the right consistency. I soon realized that it needed to be dryer and close to crumbling. Also I learned to sprinkle the finished pasta with extra flour to keep it from sticking while it was waiting to be cooked. 

Also, I had not expected was how labor intensive it would be. While it isn't strenuous, it is time consuming. You have to run the dough through the maker over an over, and it takes a while. In the begging it might be good to plan on 1/2- 1 hour. During that time (because of the noise of the mixer) it isn't really feasible to have a conversation with your guests either. It's not really a big deal, but something to think about.  Overall it wasn't quite as easy as I thought it would be, but still completely do-able.
