KitchenAid Pasta Attachment

by Richard Marshall

I use the KitchenAid pasta roller attachments (here on Amazon) and found that they beat the typical hand-rolled machines hands down.

I actually have two KitchenAid mixers and I put the flat roller on one and the spaghetti or other width attachment on the other. This really speeds things up.

The KitchenAid attachments will really spoil you over the manual machines.

Thanks

Hey Richard and thanks for your feedback. You sound to have quite the professional pasta-making set-up going on there!

You're not the first reader to big-up the KitchenAid pasta attachments in fact, so it seems that if you have the main stand mixer then this is a great way to go (see this multi-post thread of recommendations!).

Kitchenaid Pasta Roller Breaks Easily
by: Anonymous

Hi,

Don't invest in the Kitchenaid pasta attachments to their stand mixer! If you use dry pasta (say for making gluten free noodles) and the machine jams (or something gets stuck in the machine), the attachment is designed to break the internal hexagonal shearpin. That is actually a good design in that the whole gears won't break, and the pin is a really cheap one to replace, but Kitchenaid will not replace it. It is not their policy to store replacement parts, nor is it their policy to tell you their suppliers so you can get the replacement part yourself. As a result, you have to buy a whole new attachment. No thanks, I'd rather have a manual one!
