KPEX KitchenAid Pasta Excellence Set Pros & Cons
The KPEX KitchenAid Pasta Excellence set offers quality construction and great pasta style flexibility. The great majority of Amazon reviewers rave about the KPEX Pasta Excellence set going so far as to say that if you truly love pasta, “this is a must have for your kitchen aid mixer” and “We …absolutely LOVE them! They ALL work exactly as promised…”. They boast that these pasta attachments are “easy to use”, “clean up is a breeze”, and that they “will never buy boxed pasta again”.
Some warn that the ravioli maker may require a little patience to figure out but insist that it is well worth it. It is also relatively expensive, but you certainly get value for money.
The most complete of the pasta attachments sets, the KPEX is also the most expensive. But keep in mind that, if you’re a pasta lover, it is much more cost effective to bite the bullet and purchase this whole set than buy one piece at a time. In the long run, you will save over store bought pasta, and health wise, there’s just no comparison.
The KitchenAid Pasta Excellence set is a true cornucopia of pasta possibilities! Lasagna, spaghetti, fettuccini, thick egg noodles, angel hair pasta, ravioli–you can make it all with this pasta specialty kit.
Prepare fresh pasta dough sheets with the included pasta sheet roller and feed them into the cutters of your choice, or fill the ravioli maker with cheese, spinach, or meat filling and form wide pockets of fresh ravioli.
