Rated 4 out of 5Â by misscleocat This works fine for making macaroni and long tube pastas. That is what it was designed for. I am wondering about all the fuss about not making flat noodles. Kitchenaid makes attachments for making angel hair, fettuccini, pappadelli , lasagna noodles and other types of noodles. The pasta extruder is not meant to make these. Go online and look up the "pasta excellence series" and the angel hair and pappadel attachments. The extruder is specifically designed to make round pastas. The pasta excellence attachments are designed to make flat pastas. You are confusing the two different attachments. The pasta extruder is meant to make round tubular pasta while the other one (pasta excellence) is made for flat pastas.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Syd Very happy
Bought this a mounth ago. Works very well. Fusilli is difficult to get right, but otherwise pasta turns out great. Very happy.
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!!
