We have the hand crank Marcato Atlas Pasta Maker and like it, but hand cranking was a bit of a pain, and finding somewhere solid to clamp it to was even more so in our kitchen. We love our kitchenaid mixer and most of its attachments (the citrus juicer is so-so), so when we saw this, we were intrigued. A few reviews had said it was not heavy duty, so I was relieved when we opened it and saw it was "made in Italy". It is clearly made by Marcato and is virtually identical to the Marcato Atlas Pasta Maker except it has a spot to attach to the mixer instead of attaching a hand crank. It is made with lots of steel and feels very heavy duty. We've made several patches of pasta and all were as good as the handcranked ones, but a lot easier and faster to make, especially since you can use two hands to feed the pasta into the machine. Now we are enjoying hand made pasta much more frequently, and so are our guests. I highly recommend it.
I was making pasta with the spaghetti cutter over the weekend and it just stopped working. It appears the rod that makes it turn sheered right off. Tried to replace the cutter and was told I had to purchase the entire set. Very disappointed
I received my 3 piece Pasta Roller & Cutter Set earlier this week and today is the first time I have used it. For years I have always rolled out and cut my own egg noodles for beef/chicken and noodles. Then I bought a Kitchen Aid Tilt Head mixer and the 3 piece Pasta Roller & Cutter Set. First of all let me say I was totally amazed at how heavy the pasta roller and cutter are. They are built to last!! I absolutely love making our food from scratch when I can. So today I make pasta spaghetti noodles for use tomorrow (I was anxious to try out my new "toy".). All I can say is WOW, so easy, so quick, and so fun. From the time I started feeding the pasta dough through the pasta roller until I fed it though the spaghetti cutter and hung them on the drying rack was 30 minutes. For someone who has never done this before I would say this was a winner!!! No hesitate....buy this product!!!
My daughter have me the roller for Christmas. I love to cook and pasta was so time consuming and frustrating. A wood rolling pin and I are totally incompatible. This attachment made pasta a breeze!!!! Love it just as much as all the other attachments I have!!!
Have always wanted to make our own fresh pasta, and now I can! Finally got the pasta maker attachment for our 25+ year-old KA 5 Qt mixer, and it worked perfectly. Used the regular beater/bowl to make the dough, then the roller set to make part semolina fettuccine. Very pleased with the results! Treat yourself -- you won't be disappointed.
