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.

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!

Beginners luck??I just got my KitchenAid mixer for Christmas along with the pasta press. This afternoon was the debut for spaghetti. I couldn't have been more pleased with the finished product. I was a little worried that the dough was too dry, but just kneaded it together like the recipe said, and it worked just great. The noodles weren't dry or sticky. I also didn't have any problems cleaning the press. The left over dough was quite elastic and came right out of all the parts.
I hadn't read any reviews until after my project was complete, and was surprised that others had encountered problems. Perhaps it was just beginners luck! I do know that the kind of flour you use can create differences and also humidity can affect many recipes.

Needs more design & testingWhile the idea is great, the real life design leaves a lot to be desired. I bought this for my birthday last weekend. After trying three different times to use this, I came to the following conclusions:
1. The dies are almost all too close together allowing the pasta to touch and stick to each other during the extruding process.
2. The design of the dies is such that all of the hollow pastas are too thick.
3. Unless you physically stop after each cut of pasta & re-position the pasta, its stacks upon and sticks to and collapses upon each other.
4. The unit is an absolute nightmare to clean. The dies can take 10 minutes apiece to extract all of the dough from inside the passages.
This might be a good product with some additional engineering and a lot more in-home testing, but, as it is currently - no thanks ! Mine went back to the store after less than a week.

Wonderful concept, poor resultsI have been making most of my own pasta for quite a long time with the Kitchenaid pasta set. However, it is limited to long, flat pastas. When I received this attachment I felt like I'd won the lottery. Aside from amusing, very easily, I love homemade pasta and it's fun to make. This attachment appeared to be a virtual amusement park of pasta making. The first time I used it, I made the pasta from the recipe that came with it, and the dough looked and felt, perfect. After making a mountain of pasta, in every size and shape, available to me, I then went for the ultimate test, one shape at a time, flavor. I, very quickly, became aware that it really can't be cooked long enough to even get to a passable al dente, as it remained tough and chewy throughout the cooking process. Hoping against hope that it was the dough recipe, I used my own, tried and true pasta recipe and started, all over again. The results were the same, so consequently, I have never been able to use any of the pasta made from this attachment. The concept of this is fabulous, but worthless, if it doesn't produce edible pasta. I want, so badly, to be able to use it and if there is a solution, I would love to know what it is.

Pasta is too thickI just purchased and tried several shapes this past weekend. I found the rigatoni very thick and chewy and wonder if there is a lighter pasta recipe that will still go through the dies and hold its shape. Kind of disappointed in the thickness and chewiness.

Pasta making simplifiedCompared to the KitchenAid pasta roller, this is much easier. More plug and play. Made well received spaghetti and I was pressing out pasta after taking about 5 minutes to mix and knead the dough, which is great. Cleaning is pain, and time consuming.

Needs a "Medium Macaroni" size plateThe "small macaroni" plate is too small for my taste (its like Kraft Mac & Cheese size). The "Large Macaroni" is too large. Where's the MEDIUM size?
At least offer to sell me one even if additional price!
