Rated 3 out of 5 by Tomxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Needs a "Medium Macaroni" size plate
The "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!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Janet53 Pasta is too thick
I 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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Osomom1 Wonderful concept, poor results
I 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.
