Buy Kitchenaid Pasta Press Attachment


At the time of testing, none of the pasta-cutter attachments were available for me to try, but I had no problem hand-cutting my pasta sheets into noodles. If anything, the irregularity added some bespoke character to my dishes. According to KitchenAid, the roller and cutter come from the same Italian manufacturer, so the implied promise is that the quality of the cutter attachments should be up to the same standard as the roller I tested.

Unlike the pasta roller mentioned above, the KitchenAid Gourmet Pasta Press is a pasta extruder. To use it, you load the hopper with dough, which is churned by an auger through a die to make your desired shape. This is the method by which tubular pasta like rigatoni and bucatini is made, and this attachment comes with six dies to achieve those shapes, as well as fusilli, large and small macaroni, and spaghetti.


I used each attachment with my KitchenAid Pro 600 mixer, and I ran through a series of tests to experiment with all the features of each. I tested the different coarseness settings on the meat grinder and all of the shapes on the pasta press. With the shredder I grated three different textures of cheese (from soft to firm), as well as an assortment of vegetables. Each time, I asked myself whether I could see this attachment becoming a tool I would use regularly enough to warrant the space and cost, or if it would collect dust while I reached for my usual kitchen gear instead. If the appliance was bringing a new function, I considered whether it performed as well as I would expect a standalone machine to.


For weeks I used my KitchenAid almost every day: attaching the meat grinder to process a large batch of chorizo, as well as a single steak for tartare; shredding potatoes, carrots, cabbage, and three types of cheese on the rotary fresh prep slicer; and rolling yards of pasta. Some meals consisted almost entirely of attachment-produced components, like a lasagna Bolognese I made using meat, fresh pasta, and cheese that had all been processed that day.


After scouring thousands of reviews on Amazon, we compiled a list of the best pasta-making attachments fit for a feast. Please note: None of these pasta-making attachments are dishwasher safe. Wash them by hand only.


Pasta-making newcomers will rejoice over the GVODE pasta-making attachment. Described by reviewers as well made, this attachment comes with a one-year warranty and fits perfectly onto KitchenAid stand mixers as well as some Cuisinart stand mixers.


But KitchenAid didn't stop there with its pasta-related attachments. This pasta press incorporates all of the various pasta cutting tools into one compact(ish) attachment. It's pretty much exactly like the presses I grew up squishing Play-Do through, complete with six changeable discs for making fusilli, bucatini, rigatoni, spaghetti, and large and small macaroni. In comparison to the first model I tested, this machine makes complex shapes fit for the true pasta enthusiast.


We love to make pasta from scratch, there is nothing better than a fresh bowl of pasta. Nowadays is very easy to make pasta at home, you can easily find a pasta machine on the market, that can help you achieve good results at home. Today, in this KitchenAid Pasta Press review, we will take a closer look at one of the several pasta attachments that KitchenAid has for its stand mixers.


With this revolutionary pasta press attachment, you can transform your KitchenAid stand mixer into an automatic pasta machine. The 6 different plates that come with this unit lets you make large or small macaroni, fusilli, rigatoni, Bucatini, or spaghetti. We really like the versatility of this unit, with just one KitchenAid attachment we are able to produce 6 different types of pasta.


The different plates are store inside the included case that conveniently stores onto the pasta press attachment. This unit also includes a cleaning brush, auger, and hook and some Italian recipes for you to try.


Like most KitchenAid attachments this one is very easy to use! Position the desired plate and attach the press onto the power hub of any KitchenAid stand mixer, and you are good to go. Feed balls of dough through the hopper and use the built-in wire cutter to customize the length of the noodles.


It is much easier to make pasta with this press than with a pasta roller, which requires multiple passes to smooth out the dough and press the sheets thinner. The pasta emerges completely smooth and uniform. You use a swinging wire arm to cut off the pasta at the desired length. Once you got a feel for when and where to cut each pasta shape, the whole process goes smoothly and quickly.


The thing is, different shapes and final uses for the pasta call for slightly different amounts of water and egg versus flour. You can't expect extruded tubes to perform the same as compact spaghetti. The tubes need more structure to help them hold their shapes so you're not just eating mashed together tubes that didn't cook all the way through and are semi-raw, semi-cooked, and totally gross. This recipe below works for all extruder shapes that come with the KitchenAid attachment.


I am no pasta dough expert but I've tried several variations. What works best for me for extruded pasta made with this KitchenAid attachment is this dough. It may work in other extruders too. As for if this recipe works for pasta made in the pasta roller, no. This dough is meant to be crumblier for a reason. The dough needed for the pasta roller attachment needs to be smoother and more supple from the get go.


For many home cooks, the KitchenAid stand mixer is their most valued possession. With KitchenAid attachments, the dough-kneading and egg-white-whipping workhorse can turn into a pasta maker, food processor, meat grinder, and more. There are 16 attachments that connect through the mixer's front port, as well as other accessories like ice cream bowls and pastry beaters.


I used each setting on the roller and the two cutters with an egg pasta recipe from Serious Eats. The roller and both cutters fit six-inch wide sheets of dough, which is about standard for pasta makers. I found that the cutter attachments produced evenly sized and shaped strands of pasta every time.


At $170 for the basic set, this attachment is almost as expensive as the mixer itself. This is slightly higher than other electric pasta makers. The three pieces are hefty stainless steel, but they're single-purpose. The KitchenAid manual specifically notes that you shouldn't use the pasta set for anything other than pasta dough.


Storage: Most attachments, especially those with multiple parts, come with their own storage containers. The sifter, spiralizer, and meat grinder boxes take up the most space, while the pasta maker's is the most compact. You could store the attachments in different boxes, as long as you keep all the tiny pieces and blades organized.


No longer settle for pre-packaged pasta when making it fresh is easy and tastes amazing. Powered by the kitchenaid stand mixer, the gourmet pasta press makes six different types of fresh pasta from scratch quickly and easily; spaghetti, bucatini, fusilli, rigatoni, small macaroni, and large macaroni. Made in Italy. Sold separately.


The Hamilton Beach professional all-metal stand mixer handles every mixing task, from cookies and whipped cream to bread dough. The power hub lets you use optional specialty attachments for making fresh pasta, grinding meat, slicing, and shredding.


It's easy to make gourmet burgers and sausage, grind hard cheeses, or even fresh bread crumbs with the kitchenaid metal food grinder attachment. The food grinder attaches to the power hub of your kitchenaid stands mixer* and uses the power of the mixer to help you process fresh ingredients with speed and ease. Make gourmet burgers at home, any night of the week, from your favorite cut of meat, from turkey to beef, or even bison, and boost the favorite with fresh garlic, onions, mushrooms, and more.


This AMZCHEF pasta roller & cutter attachments 3-in-1 set fits ALL KitchenAid Stand Mixer perfectly. It not only ensures the freshness of pasta, but also makes it's very convenient to make homemade pasta. Nothing beats home-cooked meals,this pasta roller set of stand mixer attachments will help make those happen!


Turn your kitchen into a pasta-making workshop with the pasta press that attaches directly to your KitchenAid Stand Mixer. With six interchangeable pasta plates, you can create fresh strands of spaghetti or bucatini pastas, as well as short pastas like rigatoni, fusilli, large macaroni or small macaroni.


The machine is made from the same durable chrome-plated steel, and it comes with both flat rollers for dough sheets, as well as a double cutter attachment. The pasta maker's 110-volt motor offers more consistent rotation than a hand crank, delivering even thickness, and it takes care of all the hard work for you, leaving your hands free to guide the dough.


If you own a KitchenAid Stand Mixer, you can purchase a variety of pasta-making attachments, including this chef-approved three-piece set that includes a pasta roller, spaghetti cutter and fettuccine cutter.


If your goal is to make smaller batches of just a few types of pasta or you don't have the space for a larger electric model, we recommend a more basic manual option with a smaller footprint. If, however, you want to experiment with different shapes and types of pasta or spiralized vegetables using various attachments, cutters, or dies, we recommend springing for an electric model with more versatility.


To clean a manually operated, metal pasta maker, you should not use any water, as this could cause the machine to rust. Wait about an hour after using your machine to allow any remaining bits of dough to dry, then use a dry cloth to wipe flour and dough from the outer parts of the machine. Use a dry pastry brush or thin wooden dowel to remove any bits of dried dough from the rollers or attachments.


Then I tried another dough, and it wound up being too dry. I had no clue what I was going to do. I was at the point that I was ready to pack up my pasta press and send it back to Amazon where it came from. 041b061a72
