Pasta Roller 5KSMPSA

Once you’ve made pasta dough at home with your stand mixer, you can then roll it into thin sheets with this pasta roller. Designed for ease and control, this stainless steel pasta roller is an optional attachment which fixes securely to the attachment hub of your stand mixer. You can create sheets of any thickness you like using the 8 thickness settings. Always start at the widest setting (number 1) and then gradually increase through the scale as you keep rolling it through. Thick tagliolini, medium for lasagne or thin for linguine or ‘angel hair’ pasta. You’ll need to put the dough through at least 3 times for each setting – always folding it up and then putting it through again. Don’t forget to sprinkle flour to avoid the dough sticking! Your pasta sheets will be up to 14 cm width and perfectly smooth and even – all ready to use or cut with the KitchenAid pasta cutter accessories (sold separately). This commercial-style pasta roller comes with a handy cleaning brush to remove bits of dough when you’ve finished.

Pasta roller does the job for you

Isn’t homemade pasta wonderful? It’s a real step up from packet pasta and you can perfect it yourself with the pasta roller attachment.

How to use the pasta roller machine

The pasta roller creates sheets up to 14cm wide of your chosen thickness. Your step-by-step guide:

The rolling pin: doing it without a pasta roller

The work of the pasta roller machine can be done by hand, the traditional way. With time and skill, you can achieve paper-thin sheets of pasta ready to cut. You’ll need a rolling pin and a sprinkling of patience. Take your homemade pasta dough at room temperature – well rested – and divide it into pieces. Put some flour on the countertop and the rolling pin to keep it from sticking. Or, use the pasta roller attachment to save your arms and do the hard work for you.Pasta roller attached to red mixer rolling pasta dough

Your guide to pasta sheet thickness

If you’re unsure about the right thickness to aim for with the pasta roller, here’s a guide:

1 or 2: Kneading and thinning dough
3: Thick ‘kluski’ noodles
4: Egg noodles
4 or 5: Lasagne, fettuccine, spaghetti, ravioli
6 or 7: Tortellini, thin fettuccine, linguini fini
7 or 8: Linguini,  ‘angel hair’, capelliCreamy pasta

Pasta drying rack gives you space

When you’ve achieved your beautifully thin sheets of pasta and cut them in whichever way you like, they’ll need to dry. To save space and air-dry evenly, you can use the KitchenAid pasta dryer (sold separately). You can get the equivalent of 3 metres of drying space with the staggered spiral. Take the wand from the centre post and catch the sheets or strings as they emerge. Then, feel smug about your creation.Pasta dryer with lasagna sheets

Tip for making great pasta dough

Once you’ve discovered the joy of making fresh dough with thdough hook in the KitchenAid mixer (sold separately), it’s time to get rolling.

Before you start, leave it to rest for at least half an hour (or refrigerate for up to 24 hours) so the gluten can ‘relax’. This makes it easier to roll. It should be slightly tacky and just moist enough to form a ball.

How long does it take to dry pasta?

It will take about 15 minutes for your fresh pasta sheets to be ready to cook or store. Hang the strands on a pasta dryer or something similar to let them air flow around them.Red mixer with pasta roller and homemade lasagna
