Hands down, this makes pasta faster.
Jose Luis Caceres
I have not had any "mechanical" problems at all and cleaning is very easy, just let the remains dry some and then use a wooden toothpick.

Bought this for my daughter and son-in-law and they love it.

Be warned: your first few attempts won't be so great.

UPDATE 1/25/14
I have extensive experience now with both the extruder and the rollers/cutters. Hands down, this makes pasta faster. However, it requires carefully following the recipe.
_______

According to the recipe, you should have fresh pasta extruded in the time it takes to boil water. Last night, after 5 previous attempts, I made my first successful batch ready in time for the boiling water. The other batches were fine, but last night was the first time the process went quickly.

Here's my advice: Weigh your flour and carefully measure your eggs. 1 cup sifted flour weighs 112 grams. The eggs need to measure 7/8 cup. Once I had those exact proportions, the process went fantastic.

I love this attachment. It requires less time and kneading than roller pasta. Plus, it's as fun as playing with play dough. Remember it's a science and an art. It's a science because you MUST use exact measurements. It's an art because it's delicious. :)

The downside for me is that the pasta shapes get large and bloated after boiling. I want my pasta shapes to stay small. But big is alright, just different from what I'm used to. (See comments below for tips on bloating.)

I got the opportunity to test this attachment out for KitchenAid and I learned a lot from the experience. This attachment makes pasta making relatively easy and is well built, (made in Italy). I found making pasta to be, while challenging at first, pretty straightforward. My first impression when I received the attachment how well built it is. The pasta press, (another name for this attachment), has six different plates for making pasta. (The plates are, Spaghetti, Rigatoni, Fusilli, Bucatini and two different sizes of Macaroni). The plates come apart for cleaning, (something I learned when cleaning it after one of my times making pasta). There is also a cleaning brush, multi-tool for pushing and taking apart the pasta press at the bottom, a case for the plates (stores the other five plates, while one plate is installed in the pasta press), and the instructions.

The Pasta Press is made of heavy duty plastic and comes apart easily for cleaning (except when you have pasta that you just made, and that's where the wrench comes in). The working parts consist of:

1). The Press Plate, which the pasta dough presses through with the help of the mixer,

2). The auger, which feeds the dough to the pasta plate, and is driven by the mixer hub. This attaches to the drive with a key at the end of the auger shaft.,

3). The cutter, which cuts the pasta off at the desired length.,

4). The housing, which houses the operating parts., and:

5). All the hub parts to drive the whole operation.

All the parts are of pretty high quality, though the pusher is not as good as I would like it to be. Sometimes the dough backs up out of the press and you have to push it back down.

I used this for the first time today and it blew my socks off. I did not follow the directions in the book for making the dough. I used what I use in the restaurant that I work. I started with 2C all purpose flour and 2C semolina with 4 eggs and a tspn salt and a little cold water as needed. Made rigatoni and fussili both came out perfect. I love this attachment.

Verified Purchase
I've been making homemade pasta for many years, so I finally broke down and bought this extruder. I love it! It is incredibly easy to use, and best of all, it takes a fraction of the time to make a batch of pasta, versus the process (rolling sheets and THEN cutting) I go through to make fettuccine and spaghetti with my other pasta maker attachments. I hesitated to buy this after reading all the reviews about the broken rings, and I have two thoughts about that: 1) many reviews refer to the ring as a "cheap piece of plastic" - in fact, I think the unit is well made and very sturdy, 2) it is no surprise to me that you end up with a broken ring if you follow the dough recipe in the book that comes with this attachment. The recipe ends up with dough that is WAY too stiff and I'm sure that is what put the strain on the machine for all the people who experienced a broken ring. On top of that, I don't even like the pasta as made with that dough - I tried it the first time I used the machine (although I had to add some water to make the dough even remotely pliable) and I thought my rigatoni ended up tasting like a rock - way too much egg and no water...terrible). Although many have said that the dough needs to be very stiff to use this attachment, I have found that is simply not true. Starting with the second time I used the machine, I used my regular dough recipe (below) which yields a much softer dough, and it did not clog or slow up the machine at all. However, it is definitely very important to feed only a small amount of dough into the machine at a time. If you do that, the machine will not clog, and I have no evidence that there was ever even a strain on ny unit, much less breakage of the ring.Read more ›
