Transform your stand mixer into a pasta-making machine with the KitchenAid pasta roller and cutter set. This set is made from chrome-plated steel for lasting performance and can be used to make spaghetti, linguine, and other pasta choices....more
The pasta roller worked perfectly, just like it should. I was able to roll out the dough without any problems and it didn't rip or tear any holes in the dough. The spaghetti cutter was great although if you are wanting to make a spaghetti that is more true to the size you have to roll the dough a little bit thicker so that it is more rounded. I haven't used the fettuccine cutter yet but I have no doubt that that will work just as well as the other two.

Please tell us about the quality of the product. The quality was great. Very solid and much better than some other pasta rollers I've seen
I've used the pasta roller for sheet pasta several times now for homemade ravioli and it works great. If you follow the dough recipe exactly as in the book that comes with it, it works perfectly. Beware because too much oil or not enough oil in your recipe and the dough will not go through the roller. I run the dough through on the number one setting the first time, fold it in half and run it through again on the number one setting. After that I do it once on 2, then 3 and then end with 4.

I have wanted these for a while and took advantage of an Overstock sale to purchase. The price could not be beat elsewhere. I have used them several times so far and have had no issues. They are made in Italy and are of excellent quality. I have used the partial whole wheat and full whole wheat pasta recipes from the Kitchen Aid guide that came with the item and both recipes turned out wonderful. Love, love this item. If you have wanted them like I did, do not hesitate.

How large is the widest setting on the pasta roller? I've used a hand crank machine for years and recently tried another brand of electric pasta machine (which broke the first time I used it). I found the initial setting to be significantly smaller than the hand machines which made it difficult to get a nicely shaped sheet of pasta.smokeybee on Jan 19, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
We are unfortunately unable to get a response from the manufacturer regarding this product. We apologize for the inconvenience.overstockcustomercare1 on Jan 23, 2013
It is comparable to the hand cranked imperia that I use to have. Although the widest setting is good enough for pasta, it would be nice to have a larger setting for making crackers or for needing greasy dough.drcheese on Mar 31, 2013
