Rated 1 out of 5Â by EKR Very disappointed
Was really excited to get this for my birthday as well as the pasta attachment. Unlike the pasta rolling attachment this one is VERY disappointing. It's messy, the pasta crumples up and doesn't feed through nicely and I get pasta with little to no filling. I've tried 4/5 times now changing my technique each time and even watched videos online to see what I'm doing wrong. Nothing seems to work so I just end up doing it by hand. Really sad about this as it costs so much money for something that isn't fit for purpose.

I love making pasta, and ravioli with the hand stamp was a headache to deal with. Took me a while to buy this since the reviews are literally split between love and hate! I decided to treat my self and I'm happy I did. First of all pasta must be rolled to number 3, the attachment will stretch the dough. Second : patience! Its a slow process, make sure not to overfill hopper, but then slowly turn the dial while pushing filling. My first time was OK, my second much better. I don't give 5 stars just because I find it difficult to separate strands, but could be me not waiting for it to totally dry, but a pastry roller fixes the issue
Rated 5 out of 5Â by spaggy Worked like a charm
I had put this on my wedding registry and when I read the mixed reviews I almost returned it. So I figured I would give it a shot and it worked like a charm. The thing I saw that people were complaining about was leaking ravioli. To all the people that were complaining that it is a manual crank, who cares. It has to be a manual crank or you would have filling all over the place. By having it a manual crank you can make sure that you dont have anything leaking out anywhere. my first run though ( a dry run w/o filling) I noticed that the dough didnt quite match up. So then with my second sheet of dough I i stretched it out slightly and check for sizing and it fit great and I didnt have any leaking ravioli
Rated 3 out of 5Â by sehamilton8 Very finicky
While I am a total fan of the KitchenAid attachments and have raved about the ice cream maker, meat grinder, sausage stuffer, pasta roller and various pasta cutters the ravioli maker was a disappointment. The raviolis are very small and the operation very finicky...overall I think it was easier to simply use the roller to make two sheets of pasta dough and hand finish them. Really not that great as tends to make messy side raviolis and they are too small for my taste much neater to fill them by hand and less waste.
