[Solved] What Is The Best Kitchenaid Pasta Attachment?

A gourmet pasta press attachment. Extruded pasta can be a completely different experience. Instead of sheeted pasta cut into noodles, pasta dough is pressed through a patterned die to create noodle shapes (similar to spritz cookie presses) 🙌 The gourmet pasta press attachment comes with six discs that extrude pasta into round spaghetti, bucatini, rigatoni, fusilli, and large and small macaroni shapes 🔥 Pasta dough is pressed through the top feeder and then cut with a wirecutter at the base when it has reached the desired length 🔥 If you’ve never made extruded pasta before, you’ll likely get the hang of feeding and cutting the dough quickly.

I had chosen the rigatoni form. The first step was to make the egg dough. I used a mix of all-purpose and farro flours (freshly ground using the grainmill attachment). You need to feed the dough balls through a tube. This tube is connected to an auger that drives the dough along the shape disc. The whole process is easy, and it’s fun to use the little attached wire to cut the pasta as it’s extruded. The one downside: While the press itself is a cinch to clean, the extrusion discs are fiddly—I ended up using a metal cake tester to fish out sticky bits of dough.

If a trip to Italy doesn’t fit in your budget, don’t fret. Homemade pasta is easy to prepare. The gourmet press allows you to make 6 types of pasta, including fusilli (spaghetti), fusilli (rigatoni), fusilli and large/small macaroni). To use the attachment, just connect it to your stand mixer’s power hub and add your favourite homemade dough. (Here’s how to make pasta dough.) The mixer’s motor will force the dough through the press, creating the selected pasta shape. You can do everything. Need to do is trim When the pasta reaches the length you desire, use the wire cutter to cut it. Madyson Burdick, December 5, 2021. [3]

After numerous phone calls and purchasing a new stand mixer, we were able to see better results when the attachment was operated at 6mph (or less) and we used our own recipe for pasta. The attachment produced well-formed shapes of pasta (we tested all plates), but the best results were achieved when making spaghetti and rigatoni. However, the wire pasta cutter at the end of the attachment often pinched the pasta openings together (we couldn’t fix the bucatini, but we were able to pry open the rigatoni ends with our fingers). It’s taking the machine a while to make pasta. A 1-pound batch of pasta would take between 22 and 27 minutes. Cleaning the pasta plates, which aren’t dishwasher-safe, was a tedious task—we’re have having to use the toothpick-like cleaning tool to poke bits of dried dough out of all the nooks and crannies of the plates. If you’re set on using your stand mixer to extrude your own tubular or spiral pastas, this attachment is an OK option for some shapes, but beware its potential operating and cleanup challenges. [4]
