      The key is what you put into the extruder. Making the dough is the tricky part. Let me tell you, we made a half batch of egg noodle pasta dough using the recipe in the user manual. My wife and I worked together; I supplying the final muscle for the hand knead. Do not rush. The dough is do-able because you look at it as it develops. The last, hand knead phase is where it all comes together. We had what looks like satisfactorily constructed pasta dough. We wrapped it in the wax paper and it appearing as a large salt water taffy. Let it rest. Let moisture find its way into every bit of flour that missed your inspection. Let the gluten develop. 10 to 15 minutes. Go have a sip of wine. Think about the wine you're tasting and how well it will accompany the pasta dish with will come from your pasta effort.

      Extrusion is a piece of cake. My wife wanted Mac and Cheese and is partial to a smoked gouda version. Our first pasta we produces using this extruder was large macaroni. It just plain worked. A half recipe produces about 9ish ounces of macaroni. Thick going into the boiling, salted water. Marvelously al dente as a finished product.

      Is sum, the extruder works. It "expressed" beautifully smooth and toothsome product. Enjoy!

      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.

      Comments about KitchenAid White Pasta Press Stand Mixer Attachment:

      This is my one KitchenAid item that I'm not so sure about. I have tried to use this a few times, and really have not been very successful. Theses failures could definitely be all of my fault, as the pasta dough recipe could be off...alas I have had problem with this jamming and even overheating my mixer (I almost had a meltdown myself). Its been hard for me to find the right consistency to get the dough to come out like it's supposed to. Also, it's fairly labor intensive to clean, I have to soak the part in soapy water to get the dough out of the presses (which can't be good for the parts). All in all, when it worked it was great but I'm slightly afraid to use it because of the overheating. I will definitely try it again, if I can find a better dough recipe.

      Comments about KitchenAid White Pasta Press Stand Mixer Attachment:

      I have wanted this attachment for such a long time, I was beyond excited when I finally received it in the mail. The recipe was easy, the attachment was very easy to figure out, and the whole process was fun and exciting. It does make very tasty pasta. I will continue to use this over and over again. My only complaint so far is trying to clean the dough out of those pasta discs. Those little wholes are not easy to clean out. Even with that problem, I still love this attachment and would buy it any day. Highly recommended for the pasta loving families like mine!

      We love making all homemade organic food and this really helps. I feel its more affordable than the pasta roller/cutter and you get way more kinds of cuts. Very simple to put on and clean. This is a huge help in the kitchen!

      bought this in February so I could enjoy making pasta with my grandchildren. As well as feeding them food that I control what is going into it.

      I love this attachment. Recipes work well and taste great. The only trouble I have is getting the fusilli to twist. It keeps coming out in a straight limp strand. On the good side it tastes wonderful!!!!

      I bought the gourmet pasta press one month ago. My children and grandchildren love the fresh pasta and different recipes/types I can make. Pasta at Nana's every Sunday is now with a variety. Love the machine and the extra special time it allows me withmy grandchildren.

      Comments about KitchenAid White Pasta Press Stand Mixer Attachment:

      I have been making pasta for years and was so excited to purchase this for my beloved kitchen aide mixer. While making the noodles was no problem, I was completely disappointed in taste and texture. With only one hole in macaroni, it was tough and thick.
      A hard lesson learned at a high price.

      Not the best attachment

      By 

      from Altamonte Springs, Florida

      Comments about KitchenAid White Pasta Press Stand Mixer Attachment:

      I purchased this attachment for my wife as a Christmas present. The first three or four times we used it the pasta did not come out as it should have. Just yesterday, while making another batch of pasta, I noticed a black sludge coming from the pasta press. The auger seemed to be cracking and I immediately shut down the mixer. There was an oil around the gear of the Pasta Press and inside the press. Today, I went onto the KitchenAid Chat and I was told this BLACK oil/sludge was a food grade - non-toxic substance and everything was ok...if I wanted I could contact the company by phone regarding the warranty information. This Press is only three months old and I shouldn't have the issue of black sludge coming from the inside of this so soon. I feel like I wasted $150 on this piece of equipment.

      Also, I work in the medical field...anything that is black and has an oily feel to it is everything but NON-TOXIC.

      I gave this a 2-star rating because the first couple of times we used it, we as a family enjoyed making pasta together. The major reason we purchased this piece of equipment is because our son is Autistic and we wanted to make better quality, homemade food...we didn't expect the food would have black sludge in it or the equipment sounding like it was cracking three months since the purchase date and only used five times.
