Rated 3 out of 5Â by Chez Bird no fettuccine attachment or flat noodle
I have had mine pasta press for about a year and on youtube I saw demonstration on how to use it and I saw how easy it was and I thought great I'll be able to make homemade noodles like my mom used to make at Thanksgiving and Christmas so I said I will make the noodles I've been a culinary field for 40 years my mother and father are both passed away and I spend the money for this press. but what? No noodle makerI would have much rather had a noodle maker then another macaroni attachment it would have been so so easy do you make an attachment a cutter for the press that does fettuccine
Rated 5 out of 5Â by HappyHen Just what I needed!
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.
Rated 3 out of 5Â by Fernanda Liked but having problems with fusilli.
I bought the past press this week and came with the rigatoni plate broken. I called KitchenAid and they take care of the problem immediately. Thumbs up to customer service. I'll receive a new plate by mail. But the reason i'm not completely satisfied is because I cannot get a fusilli right. It comes strait and not on the shape of a fusilli, I'm not sure if I have to make a very stiff dough or let it dry a little before the extrusion or if the problem is on the fusilli plate. I would love to hear some tips and tricks about making the fusilli. Today I did the large macarroni and it turned out great. Really like it but I want to love it!!
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Gee9ine Very happy and pleasantly surprised.
I received this for Christmas. I had a hand crank pasta maker but wanted to make rigatoni. I read the reviews and just groaned, thinking that this was a going to be a dud. I watched a video on You Tube by a guy named Ben Starr, he used pumpkin and salt. I decided to try it anyway with a plain recipe of flour and eggs. ( needed a tad bit of water because it is dry today) . This was by far the best pasta that we have ever had. My husband and dad are thrilled and I will never purchase box pasta again!! So more research before you discount this attachment. It is great!
