What Is a KitchenAid Pasta Attachment

The KitchenAid pasta attachment is the perfect addition to any kitchen. No longer do you have to throw away half a cup of pasta because it does not reach the pot or the pan. You simply use the one-cup attachment and pour the pasta into the pan or pot. The one-cup attachment fits onto the mixing board to assist you in pouring ingredients into the pasta without creating a mess. It also keeps other light ingredients such as flour from flying all over the place.

If you are in need of making fresh homemade pasta, you will appreciate the many different ways that the kitchenaid stand mixer can be used to make pasta. When you have a KitchenAid pasta attachment, you can make pasta by simply putting the dough in the mixing bowl with the motor on. The attachments even come with a whisk to make it even easier to get the dough into the right shape.

An Overview

The KitchenAid pasta attachment makes the dough and then you simply cut it into the desired shapes such as rounds, square, and angel hair style. By using a kitchenaid pasta cutter, you can cut the sheets into whatever size pieces you like. Then all you have to do is drop the cut pieces into the pasta maker and turn the kneading machine on. With the blades on the cutting wheel, the dough will be shaped accordingly and will come out the other end ready to cook on the stove or in the oven.

Other attachments have additional functions besides the KitchenAid pasta attachment. Some kitchenaid pasta attachments come with a peel and stick feature. This attachment is great for making zucchini noodles. If you do not have time to make noodles by hand, you can simply peel and stick the zucchini onto the noodle sheets with the peel and stick attachment. The same thing happens with hard cheeses, all you have to do is stick the hard cheese onto the sheets with the attachment, and the sheet will peel right off of the cheese. You can also remove the center from hot dogs, pizza dough, or omelets with this unique attachment.

There are many attachments that are sold separately, but most people do not buy them. These attachments usually serve one purpose; they allow you to make different shapes and designs. In the past, most attachments were used to simply cut and form pasta dough. Now there are attachments that allow you to cut different shapes with the dough. The designs are either etched on the dough or glued on. You can use these pasta cutters to make personalized pizza dough or cutlets for a variety of recipes.

Most of the attachments have different thickness settings. The thickness settings allow you to choose the thickness of the dough so that the noodles come out at a perfect consistency. A thick, crispy bottom is what most homemade dishes are missing. When choosing an attachment for your KitchenAid stand mixer, be sure that you get an attachment that has the ability to change thickness settings. Some attachments have a bigger range of thickness settings than others, so it is important to get the attachment that works best with your KitchenAid mixer.

Most attachments for KitchenAid come as a set of six or eight cutter attachments. The attachments all operate in the same way; the blades of the KitchenAid pasta roller cut the sheets to your desired thickness and then push them through the holes on the dough sheet. Once the sheets come out of the holes, they are ready to be assembled and made into the dish you desire.

The attachments do not require assembly. They fit in the same way that the attachments for your KitchenAid pasta roller do. After the assembly, all you have to do is put the dough into the hole on the top of the KitchenAid pasta roller and run it through the rollers to form the desired dish. That’s it!
