Rated 2 out of 5 by from One good noodle per cut... Quite simply, if you are making a tube-shaped pasta, you are likely getting one good noodle per cut (good meaning open on both ends). The wire drags across the plate, essentially sealing one end of the tube. The noodle that is open on both ends is the one closest to the wire. I tried adding flour to the included recipe, flouring the ball before tossing it in the hopper, slow cut, fast cut, flouring the wire between cuts. I can not be the only person having this issue, yet I can not find a trouble shoot. Is there a trouble shoot for this issue? [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Kitchenaid Pasta Press KSMPEXTA I have wanted this attachment for such a long time, I was beyond excited when I finally received it in the mail. The recipe was easy, the attachment was very easy to figure out, and the whole process was fun and exciting. It does make very tasty pasta. I will continue to use this over and over again. My only complaint so far is trying to clean the dough out of those pasta discs. Those little wholes are not easy to clean out. Even with that problem, I still love this attachment and would buy it any day. Highly recommended for the pasta loving families like mine! (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not work The pasta ring broke the first time I used it, with a typical extruder pasta dough recipe. The plastic parts for this extruder are not sturdy enough for use with an extruder where heat and pressure work the pasta dough through the dies to form the pasta noodles. The components need to be made of metal such as stainless steel or aluminum. There is no customer support in Singapore to help bring in the replacement pasta ring (they don't know what I'm talking about even when I gave them the part no) and Kitchenaid in US can't help because I'm not in the US.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Storage box and missing parts I was given the KSMPEXTA as a gift, when unboxing there was no brush or plastic storage housing on top of the attachment. I have viewed several videos and all of them show these parts as included. When I research the KitchenAid website it mentions that the box it comes in is to be used for storage; I put the box out for trash and had to retrieve it. The box is large, most kitchens don't have extra storage space. Also had to research videos on disassembly and cleaning.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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 5 by from pasta pasta pasta I had never made or had home made pasta before but now we will have it often. The first time I made spaghetti and the dough was to wet they all stuck together before I could get them in the pot. But the second time I added a 1/4 cup flour and left out 1 egg and it turned out perfect. Just be sure to make dough into golfball size pieces and feed them into the press. Dough needs to be at room temp also or it takes forever to get thru the press. Leftovers were even good eating. give it a try you wont be sorry [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Noisy, slow -- but kinda cool The pasta extruder is a cool gadget, turning out all sorts of pasta shapes, but it is SLOW & noisy. I hope I use it more than once for the money I spent on it, but the length of time it took to make enough pasta to serve 4 is a definite drawback. DO NOT put more pasta into the apparatus than suggested -- it only slows it down. It did seem to speed up as it got going. I definitely didn't get the pasta recipe made perfectly - it turned out a bit tougher or chewier than it should have. But it was kind of fun, & I hope to try it again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from A waste of time The attachment was a big disappointment. I have tried several dies for different shapes, some where alright and others were not. The fusilli extruded the dough flat, not the spiral shape they are supposed to be. I was concerned with using the extruder, because my mixer would get too hot. I made an appointment with my local William Sonoma with one of their product people. He was very helpful, but had some similar issues. His fusilli did not twist either. I have made fresh pasta for over 30 years, but this was my introduction to shaped pasta, I am disappointed. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from wish attachments were half as good as the mixer Love my lift mixer which I have regularly used throughout the last ten plus years but went to use my slicer attachment yesterday and saw plastic housing was cracked in several locations where the shaft goes into the housing . Then looked at the grinder and was also cracked in similar location. Only had used a few times each and was looking forward to using more now that I have more time. Stored properly and in closed kitchen cabinet in a controlled environment ( ie heated and AC) so never should have cracked. So of course all my other attachments are now useless too. See photos.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from not sure but wanting to give it a thorough testing The process is slower than I thought it would be, a lot slower, but I think that with my usual pasta recipe I might have better results as the KA recipe appeared to be excessively dry. What makes it more trying is the loudness of the mixer as it is processing. It is hard to listen to for an extended period of time. What I like, the pasta can be made in advance and dried and appropriately stored. I would wish for a choice of an angel hair pasta plate and fettuccini plate since I feel there is a certain redundancy to the plates already offered.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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 1 out of 5 by from DO NOT BUY Don't waste your money, first time using it to grind meat for burgers and the housing cracked! Guess I'll have to go back to buying ground beef, just doesn't make sense to buy another one! (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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 5 by from Saves time and it is easy to clean I used another pasta maker that requires you to roll out the dough and put it thru the machine 3 or 4 times to thin it before you can even make the noodles. I like this pasta maker because it is less time consuming. I also like the cutter feature. Awesome product and I have already recommended it to several people.
