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 bought this last week to make macaroni for homemade mac and cheese. I whipped a batch of dough in the mixer, which is so much easier than using a hand mixer with dough hooks. Then a quick attachment of the pasta press. I rolled little balls of dough and fed them in. Soon nice little strands of macaroni were feeding out of the bottom. I found the letting them feed out just a little longer than you would get from a package minimized sticking together. I find home made noodles are so much tastier than store bought. And you know what went in to them. This is an adult play doh factory, and caution should be taken that too much fun cooking is not had.

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.
