What is the paddle attachment on a KitchenAid mixer?
A paddle attachment is the ultimate multipurpose attachment for your stand mixer and can serve most of your baking and mixing needs. They are the default attachments in a stand mixer for basic mixing and creaming.
What KitchenAid setting for ravioli dough?
Attach the pasta sheet roller to your stand mixer and set it to #1. Turn the stand mixer to speed setting 1 (or 2) and run the ravioli pasta dough through the pasta sheet roller.
What thickness should ravioli pasta be?
The dough should be paper-thin, about 1/8-inch thick. Dust the counter and dough with flour, lay out the long sheet of pasta. Brush the top surface of dough with egg wash. Drop 1 tablespoon of cooled filling about 2-inches apart on half the sheet of pasta.
Is tilt head or bowl lift better?
Comparing Tilt Head and Bowl Lift Models Batter that clings to the beater drips down better when the head is tilted because of its slanting position. It’s also easier to scrape off sticky batter from the beater. Removing beater, whip or hook in a bowl lift stand mixer can be a bit awkward.
How do I get the attachment off my KitchenAid mixer?
KitchenAid recommends that you compress a warm, wet towel around the top of the attachment for 10 minutes. Reheat the towel and repeat for another couple of minutes. The warmth will cause the aluminum to expand, and with some wiggling, should allow you to release the attachment.
What is the thinnest setting on a pasta machine?
Sometimes the thickest setting is #1, sometimes the thinnest setting is #1. Sometimes the thickest setting is over 1/8″ thick and sometimes it is closer to 1/16th”. This causes all kinds of problems in projects where the thickness of the sheet is critical to the technique.

Are pasta machines worth it?
I’d say it’s definitely worth it as long as you’re going to be making pasta semi-regularly. It’s way easier and more consistent than making it by hand. Depends on how many times you do it and how much you do each time. The pasta maker and pasta extruder attachments are a pretty damn great way to go if you do.
What if I don’t have a paddle attachment for my mixer?
The only real substitute for a paddle attachment, I think, is a wooden (or silicone or plastic) spoon, just like great-grandma (or my own mother, who never had a mixer anyway) used to do it. A hand mixer’s blades slice through the mixture instead of really beating it.
What attachment do I use on my KitchenAid mixer to cream butter?
