When it comes to fresh pasta, you can always count me in. There’s no doubt that a bowl of fresh pasta from a classic Italian restaurant hits the spot, but there’s something about putting the work in and rolling out your own dough to create a fantastic dish at home that makes you feel more connected to the meal you’re about to serve. I spent a lot of time perfecting my pasta recipe over the last couple of years, and it’s not rocket science. But it does take some time, and the most labor-intensive part is getting the perfect thickness and cut for the type of pasta that you want.
This is where pasta attachments save the day. When attached to your stand mixer, a pasta attachment is set to the desired thickness and makes precision cuts without having to worry about finding the perfect knife and getting into a groove on your cutting board. After scouring thousands of reviews on Amazon, we compiled a list of the best pasta making attachments, fit for a feast.
The recommendations in this guide are based on thorough product and market research by our team of expert product reviewers. The picks are based on examining user reviews, product specifications, and, in some limited cases, our experience with the specific products named.
If you have a KitchenAid mixer, then you’re already familiar with how great KitchenAid products are, and this pasta roller and cutter is no exception. Described by reviewers as a “must-have,” this stainless steel attachment is a great addition to anyone’s beloved KitchenAid mixer and would make a great gift for anyone looking to have fun in the kitchen. Eight thickness settings make it easy to pick your preference, and because this pasta making attachment is run by the power of your stand mixer, you have both hands free to guide your fresh dough through one of two included pasta cutters.
People love this attachment for its consistent and smooth cuts, and are pleased with how sturdy it is. The only real downside that we uncovered with the KitchenAid attachment is that cleaning can be tedious, and to avoid rusting you’ll want to follow the manufacturer's instructions by using the included brush to loosen and brush away dough once it’s firmed up a little.
The Antree pasta maker attachment is said to fit all KitchenAid stand mixers except the K45SS, which is KitchenAid’s Classic Series 4.5-liter model. This is another pasta maker attachment that has eight different thickness options and includes a cleaning brush. The difference between this pasta making attachment and others is that the Antree rolls out smaller, 5.5-inch sheets of pasta and because of these smaller areas, the dough may not get as thin for some people’s preferences.
What we like about this model from Antree is that the hard plastic hatch can be removed, exposing the inside mechanisms, which makes it easier to clean more thoroughly. Some reviews mention that you might have to use smaller amounts of dough at a time in order to avoid clogging, which will add more time to your process.
Hatch can be opened for cleaning
Fits most KitchenAid stand mixers
Rolls out sheets on the small side
Might not get as thin as others
Pasta-making newcomers will rejoice over the GVODE pasta making attachment. Described by reviewers as well made, this attachment comes with a 1-year warranty and fits perfectly onto KitchenAid stand mixers as well as some Cuisinart stand mixers. The eight settings for this attachment range from 0.4 to 2 mm (0.016 to 0.08 in) in thickness and pasta sheets can be cut with your choice of 1.6 or 6.3 mm (0.06 in or 0.25 in) to make fettuccine- or spaghetti-size cuts, though reviews mention that the cuts from the GVODE aren’t as clean as they would like. As with other pasta making attachments, it’s not advised to submerge your tool in water, but using a liberal amount of flour on your attachment will make cleaning easier.
The InnoMoon pasta making attachment is similar to others, where it has one pasta roller with eight thickness settings and two pasta cutters, for either fettuccine or spaghetti, though the size of the spaghetti is compared to angel hair in almost all of the reviews. Said by reviews to be very easy to use and just as clean with an included brush, this pasta making attachment is a little pricey but there don’t seem to be any issues with its quality.
If you have the money, you might try this one and save a couple bucks by not going with a name brand pasta maker. One roller which has eight thickness levels and two cutters. Overall, this pasta making attachment seems like a good investment. And although a couple people mention that their pasta got stuck in the roller, this doesn’t sound like an issue caused by the machine itself.
If you’re running low on space for your kitchen gadgets, the Jovan Home pasta maker attachment is the choice for you. This three-in-one pasta maker is handy because you won’t waste time switching attachments during the pasta-making process, and would be great in situations where you’re making more than one type of pasta. Said to be easy to adjust for thickness and easy to use overall, the cover can easily be opened in order to clean the rotating pieces inside once you’ve finished making your pasta.
People are pleased with the rolls of 5.5-inch sheets of pasta and don’t have any complaints about the thickness despite the smaller sheet size. The Jovan Home attachment comes with a 1-year warranty.
