Style Name: Grain-Mill Verified Purchase
I have been using this for a couple of months and it's time consuming to get the grain through it. You have to start at a low setting and keep moving it through until it's fine enough for baking. I think it's tough to clean up but my main concern is that it seems to be a big strain on the unit itself and that concerns me. I could have bought a free standing grain mill for another 80-100 dollars but to replace my mixer is as you know alot more so...I'm on the fence about whether or not this was a good puchase. On the positive, it does work and the bread is very tasty.
*****Update 5/12/11-I have had some issues with my kitchen aid mixer since using the grain mill. It's slowing down and making strange noises. My sister in law called kitchen aid because when she bought and used the grain mill it broke her mixer. This grain mill according to kitchen aid is not recommended for use with a machine that is not at least 500watt and in the professional series. I'm pretty upset that we had to call to get that information. I've looked and looked everywhere online and in the manuals and I can't find it. It seems pretty shady to keep that info to themselves.

Style Name: Citrus Juicer
I really like this attachment and use it frequently. That said, I have some suggestions:
For users-
1. Use the KitchenAid mixing bowl to catch the juice, and place a large standard kitchen strainer across the bowl. This speeds things up a lot!
2. Rub some shortening on the aluminum shaft before inserting it into the brass sleeve. If you use your juicer a lot, this will greatly prolong its life.
For KitchenAid-
1. The plastic piece that inserts into the mixer should be made out of metal, instead of plastic with a metal sleve. On mine the plastic is cracking away from the brass.
2. The aluminum shaft should be brass or steel. As it is, the bearing surface is a small area of aluminum that even when lubricated, is showing lots of wear.

Style Name: Grain-Mill
I've used this mill for a year now. I probably grind once or twice a week. It's better to use flour while fresh, so grind less flour, more often. I love this mill for the following reasons:

-Easy to attach, use, clean, and put away.
-Doesn't take much storage room.
-Not insanely loud (it is loud.. but not ear piercing loud like other stand-alone mills I've heard).
-Doesn't heat the flour as you mill it.

Drawbacks to this grain mill are related to your intended use.
-There is a size limit to the hopper (I don't grind enough at a time to have this bother me).
-You can only grind so much grain before you have to let the motor cool (again, I don't grind enough at a time to worry about this).
-On the finest setting, the grain isn't as fine as a $200 plus mill, however, this mill didn't cost $200 plus.

I usually start milling on the finest setting, and then run all of that flour back through on the finest setting. Twice through makes a noticeable difference, three times is unnecessary.

Style Name: Ravioli Maker Verified Purchase
I read a lot of the reviews, and bought this anyway, but was unsure. I figured what they heck, but it was what some of the positive reviews said that made me decide to get it.

I'm glad I did. I just used it, and wow, it was fun (if you like to cook), and easy. I did mess up a little, which turned out to make a small percentage of mine to not be sealed, but that was user error. But the main thing here is....I did not have to seal a single ravioli, and they cooked up just fine.

Most important things to do;
*roll pasta sheets to #3 on the pasta sheet roller....period.
*watch the youtube video with peter pasta. He has two videos, almost that same, but one actually says what settings he is using, which is THREE!!
*read the instructions that come with it....twice.

Simple huh? First and foremost, regardless of what recipe one uses and what they say to do, the setting for the pasta sheets is 3, not 5, not 7, not 42, but 3 - why reviewers complained when they set it to 5 or higher, I have no idea. Peter Pasta video AND the instructions say this is required for the raviolis to seal correctly. Maybe if you have a special pasta rolling pin, and hand make them, then they can be made thinner, but not for this machine.

Now, does this mean the the raviolis will be too thick and maybe doughy....nope. I think it's because the way the thing works, it stretches the dough a bit in the process.

While the unit is hand cranked, it's not that big of a deal.....and I'm not sure I would want it to be powered....it sucks the filling in quick enough as it is. I'm cooking for two, not 20. I made 4 dozen ravioli in just minutes...

Style Name: Slicer/Shredder Verified Purchase
Length: 9:35 Mins
I purchased this with the intention of just using the shredder for cheese; I make a lot of home made pizza and I finally broke my food processor. I am not going to use the slicer but I thought it would be fun to try it out and let you see what it does right out of the box. This video has been edited; I did quite a bit more slicing of vegetables but had to cut it down to make the 10 minute time limit. The only thing that the slicer did right was slice carrots. Everything else was not sliced properly--a lot more shredding than slicing with several of the veggies. The apple came out pretty good and we made some great apple chips from those. I didn't try using the shredders on the vegetables for making hash browns, but I imagine it would have done a decent job.
Things you didn't see on there were onions and cabbage. The slicer did a decent job on the cabbage (also the cabbage removed the orange staining on the housing caused by the carrots) but there were a few large chunks that got stuck between the slicer and the housing. Other than that, it was practically perfect for coleslaw. The onion sliced fairly decent as well, except for a few big chunks. The harder the food was (carrots, apples, radishes, etc.) the better it sliced. The blades of the slicer do not appear to be very sharp which may have a lot to do with the poor slicing performance. I never cared for any kind of food slicer, I feel that its faster overall to just cut by hand with a really sharp knife. Now as far as the cheese shredding, the product does a fairly good job, but I am going to use the fine grater though in the future.
