KitchenAid Pasta Attachment Uses & Tips
KitchenAid has a sweet pasta sheet roller & cutter attachments that can be used in conjunction with you’re a KitchenAid stand mixer.

To create the perfect pasta, you need to have the perfect pasta dough. Pasta dough should be firm, leathery and smooth. It shouldn’t be crumbly like bread crumbs or stick to your fingers when you work with it. If you find your pasta dough is sticky, try adjusting the flour/water ratio. Many factors can contribute to how the overall dough comes out. Sometimes flour, eggs, humidity, or elevation play a role in the overall quality of the dough.
Food (Meat) Grinder Attachment Uses & Tips
KitchenAid stand mixers can also be used to grind meats, fruits, vegetables, breads and other foods just with the food grinder attachment.
KitchenAid food grinders come with various plates. By using the coarse plate, fine plate you can easily grind raw or cooked meats, firm vegetables and dried fruits and cheeses. If you want a more fine finish, you’ll need to use the Fine Plate. This is used for grinding raw meats for spreads and for crumbing different types of bread. For fine grinding of meats and proteins you should grind the meat twice. Fat should only be ground once, and meat will give a superior quality if it is partially frozen when grinding.
When grinding bread, make sure it has had adequate time to dry. It’s preferred that you use the oven to dry the bread. Partially dried bread may jam the food grinder. Hard breads or very dense foods should not be ground in the food grinder. It’s also best to grind homemade bread when it’s fresh.
