Making Pasta by Using the KitchenAid Pasta Press
IMPORTANT: When using the Pasta Press, do not wear ties, scarves, loose clothing, or long necklaces; gather long hair with a clasp.
- Prepare pasta dough—form dough into walnut-sized balls.
NOTE: The Pasta Press is designed to be used with pasta dough only. To avoid damaging your Pasta Press, do not insert anything other than pasta dough.
- Choose the right pasta plate and set the Stand Mixer speed accordingly.

- Slowly feed walnut-sized balls of dough into the hopper; dough should self-feed through the auger. Wait until the auger is visible before adding the next piece.
- Use the combo tool to push dough only if dough becomes caught in the hopper and no longer self feeds.
- Use the cutter to cut pasta at the desired length as it exits the press. For recommended lengths, choose the right pasta plate.

- Separate pasta after extrusion. Pasta may be cooked immediately. If drying, place long noodles on KitchenAid® Drying Rack (KPDR), or dry in a single layer on a towel placed on a flat surface.
