Pasta roller

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Ok so I have a kitchen aid, and i was wondering do I go with the kitchen aid pasta roller which is around 80.00 dollars, or can I get away with buying one from a caft store and using 40% of and getting one so much cheaper.. I really want one, but I really don't want to spend a fortune on one..So are the cheaper ones just as good as the kitchen aids.. icon_smile.gif

I really like the kitchen aid attachment because it sits higher off the work surface. Also, because it is motorized it gives you 2 hands to feed and catch the fondant.

Can you really get pasta rollers at craft stores?? I had no idea, and I'm in the market for a new one!

You can get the manual pasta rollers at Ross for $18. I have one that cost a lot more than that, years ago, and I don't care for using it with fondant at all.

I got mine at michael's in the polymar clay isle using a rare 50% coupon. I like it but it takes some learning. I have learned that the fondant/gumpaste needs to be well dusted, even dusting beween rolls, and to keep a damp paper towel to run along the rollers (while cranking it) to clean them if the item starts to stick. Saves me a lot of time using a roller and it is always uniform in thickness.

Wow, I'm blown away about finding the pasta rollers at craft stores!! I've only used mine for making my own pasta, but it's gotten really finicky and I was just thinking of replacing it. This is good to know since they run about $40 on Amazon. Thanks guys!!

I love my kitchenaid pasta roller. I had a manual one from Michaels and gave it away. You can get the kitchenaid from Bed Bath and Beyond for around $50 and use their 20% coupon, so much easier then cranking the manual one.
