I have several different attachment sets for my Kitchen Aid stand mixer, and by far this is my favorite one that I have purchased and the one that I use the most. A few months ago I decided that I really wanted to start making homemade pasta, but didn't want to buy a thing that would only be used for that and take up even more kitchen space, then I found this. The attachements are exactly what I was looking for. They are Kitchen Aid brand, which means they are made very well. Sturdy and easy to clean, both of which are very important things to me, since I love to cook, and bake but hate cleaning up. This set of pasta rollers are very easy to clean. The attachements attach perfectly to my stand mixer. I wouldn't call myself a expert chef, but I do cook three or four meals from scratch a week, and I also eat a lot of pasta- so these attachments get used quite a bit. They for sure get used more than all my other gadgets, and probably quite a bit more. They are a little pricer because they are Kitchen Aid brand, but believe me they are well worth the investment. They are sturdy and easy to use. I would recommend them to anyone who is looking to make their own pasta, but doesnt want to get something big and bulky.
