I have used it several times since I bought it and it is quite a well built device and does it's job as expected. I use 100 grams of all purpose flour per egg (usual batch size is 2-4 eggs) and let that rest for half an hour after the initial kneading. Then I work it into a long dough snake about 2 inches in diameter and cut that into 2 inch lengths. Once done the KitchenAid and pasta press to the rest.
I would like to see plates for other pasta types; fettuccine or reginette would be doable in this format but I intend to get a roller for lasagna some time in the future anyway so that would be doable there as well. However star, wheel shell and other uncommon shapes would be fun as an expansion pasta plates set.
To keep the extruder fed with dough, you make little balls of dough that you continually feed into the machine. My wife is only 5' 2" and it is difficult for her to see into the tube that you add the dough ball into. You have to be careful to not overstuff or else the machine won't make any more. If you're OCD about your pasta shape being a consistent size/length, this is not for you. Different shapes have different attachments and different speeds and it is not easy to get each group of pieces made the exact same length.
Have had no issues cleaning. When cutting the pasta as it comes out, have tried to spray PAM on the cutting wire. This helps to get it not to stick. Be careful you don't cut yourself. I'm not sure how but wife did that when trying to clean off wire, hence the PAM...
If you like making homemade spaghetti with your KitchenAid, you'll love having other pasta shapes available for homemade dinners. Just give yourself enough time to make the pieces when you use the machine. We tend to start the water boiling when we start making the pieces. We're not always done on time but it is good to be able to focus only on the pasta making when making the individual pieces versus having to start the water when you are done.
