2. I have the pasta attachment set for the Kitchenaid stand mixer.

Its a bit pricey, but if you use a lot of pasta it will pay for itself soon enough. This thing has a lot of settings for making many different types of pasta. I like to add fresh herbs to the mix, or make spinach pasta, and its easy to use. It lets you make fettuccine, linguine, and spaghetti, or egg noodles. Use them fresh, freeze, or dry them for later.


Kitchenaid has a different attachment to extrude macaroni, penne and other hollow shapes.

3. I have both the pasta roller and extruder for the Kitchenaid mixer

I used the extruder for many years, but never really liked it all that much. The pasta roller attachment works quite well and pretty much the same as the hand crank model I also have without as much work. If you plan on doing a lot of pasta and already have a kitchenaid mixer, then the roller attachment may make sense unless you have an assistant or young child that can continuously crank the handle for you. Another way to up the volume you produce is to get a wider model.

If you get a hand crank model, some things to think about are how well the device clamps to the table, how easy is it to clean, and how wide it is which translates into how much pasta you can crank out in a given amount of time. The machines made by Atlas are quite good, are made in Italy, and some have the option of adding a motor later if you want.

4. I love my kitchen aid pasta maker attachments...your roll and cut...I also have the

ravioli maker I am gluten free (Celiac) and the pre-made pasta is expensive so I use it quite often.

5. I JUST bought one!!

The Marcato Atlas 150. https://www.amazon.com/Marcato-Machine-Stainless-Cutter-Instructions/dp/B0009U5OSO

And so far, I'm more than happy with it. It's heavier than I expected and seems to be very well made. It comes with one attachment that cuts either fettuccine or spaghetti.

So far, I've made egg noodles and wheat thin crackers!!!

I'm having a ball.

This thing is so attractive... I'm trying to find space in my kitchen to display it instead of putting it back in the box when it's not in use.

I'm just a beginner with this gadget, but happy to try to answer any questions.

6. That's what I have

I've had it for years. It works like a dream.

If you want to extrude pasta into tubular shapes, etc. you'll need a kitchen aid attachment, but for angel hair, fettucine, ravioli, and lasagna, this thing can't be beat.
