Hi all,
Should I purchase the pasta attachment for my Kitchenaid or buy something like the motorized Atlas Pasta Machine or another brand that someone can recommend.
Thanks
Susan

I love my Kitchenaid attachment - haven't had any probs with it. Of course, I've only used it for pasta, not fondant. I'd love to hear other people's opinions how well this works.

Oooohhhhhhh my there is NO comparrison! Definately get the KA attachment. You will never regret iticon_smile.gif
One problem w/any other is that it sits so close to the table it is hard to make long pieces.

Thanks to all. I'm so excited! I went to Macy's and they had the KitchenAid pasta machine on sale-$20 dollars off- I used the friends and family coupon-20%off along with 2 gift certificates. On the way out of the mall I stopped at Wm Sonoma and they had a rebate form for all Kitchenaid attachments for another 25% off! Man, I scored big time! I hope it's not hard to use (or clean up for that matter-lol)
