Review: Kitchenaid Pasta Roller Attachment Set for Stand Mixers

kitchenaid-pasta-roller-attachment-set-for-stand-mixersIf you have a Kitchenaid Stand Mixer then you are probably already aware of all of the neat attachments available for it. (If not, check out our big list of Kitchenaid Attachments)

One of the most fun attachments to use is the Kitchenaid Pasta Roller Attachment which fits on all Kitchenaid stand mixers and comes with 3 pieces.

Making your own pasta has never been easier with this Kitchenaid stand mixer attachment set.

1. The Roller

kitchenaid-pasta-roller.JPGThe first piece is a roller that is used to knead your dough and roll it out to the desired thickness.

It comes with an adjustment knob which allows you to adjust the thickness level and has 8 different settings:

  • Settings 1 or 2 are for kneading and thinning dough.
  • Setting 3 is for thick kluski type egg noodles.
  • Setting 4 is for egg noodles.
  • Setting 4 or 5 is for lasagna noodles, fettuccine, spaghetti and ravioli.
  • Setting 6 or 7 is for tortellini, thin fettuccine and linguine fini.
  • Setting 7 or 8 is for angel hair type pasta or very fine linguine.

2. The Fettuccine Cutter

kitchenaid-fettuccine-cutter.JPGThe fettuccine cutter attaches in the same way as the roller and allows you to make…yes you guessed it…fettuccine!

So once you have used the roller your dough should be at the right thickness to feed into the fettuccine cutter.

There’s not much to it really, just feed it in and out it comes in the fettuccine shape ready for immediate use or drying or freezing for later use.

3. The Linguine Cutter

kitchenaid-linguini-cutter.JPGAlthough Kitchenaid calls this a spaghetti cutter in their instruction manual, you’re not going to get the round spaghetti shape with this. It is more of a linguine cutter which is what they call it in the rest of their promotional material.

So we’ll stick with calling it that as well since it makes a flatter shaped pasta.

This attachment works in exactly the same way as the Fettuccine Cutter. Just feed in the pasta and out comes your linguine. Too easy!

The instruction manual also came with a number of pasta recipes which is really handy.

Kitchenaid Juicer Extractor Attachment Review

kitchenaid-juicer-extractor-attachmentThis Kitchenaid juicer is a great little attachment for anyone who owns a Kitchenaid stand mixer. It fits all Kitchenaid stand mixers.

If you love fresh orange juice in the morning then you will love this KitchenAid Juice Extractor Attachment. It makes juicing easy and ensures that the pips and pulp are strained so that you only receive the juice.

You can juice any citrus using this juicer including oranges, lemons, limes and grapefruit.

Just attach the juicer and place a glass, pitcher, bowl…whatever you like… under the juicer. Then turn to speed 6. Then place cut fruit aganst the spinning reamer. You’ll need to apply a bit of pressure and move the fruit around a bit for best affect.

This Kitchenaid juicer attachment is dishwasher safe but it is recommended that you hand wash only.

This attachment received some excellent reviews on the net.

Review: Kitchenaid Pouring Shield Attachment Review

kitchenaid-pouring-shield-attachmentThe Kitchenaid Pouring Shield attaches to a Kitchenaid stand mixer to help with adding ingredients as well as preventing splashing when mixing.

The Kitchenaid Pouring Shield fits all Kitchenaid 4.5 qt stand mixers and 5qt stand mixers with the exception of the 5qt lift bowl models.

Consumer reviews are mixed for this product with some loving this handy attachment and others finding that it caused more problems than it was worth. The problem seemed to center around the attachment not fitting properly and coming loose.

I think the problem may be related to the fact that consumers have purchased the wrong size pouring shield for their stand mixer. As we have already indicated this does not fit 5qt lift bowl models and unfortunately a number of online cookware merchants do not indicate this in their description.

What We Like

  • This attachment is dishwasher safe.
  • It makes adding ingredients super easy.
  • It prevents foods from splashing around your kitchen.

What We Don’t Like

  • The issue with the pouring shield not fitting properly seems to be a widespread problem. Ensure that when purchasing that you check that you are getting the right size pouring shield for your Kitchenaid stand mixer.
