Make your favorite fresh ravioli tonight. Easy to use and simply attaches to the hub of your stand mixer. Simply connect to your attachment hub and hand crank fresh ravioli in quickly and easily. Recommended for use with the KitchenAid Pasta Roller attachment (Model KPSA, sold separately). Ravioli maker attachment comes with a one year limited replacement warranty.
Such a disappointment. I didn’t realize that this attachment is not powered by the stand mixer, the mixer acts solely as a mount. That wouldn’t have been a dealbreaker on its own, but only a couple of the ravioli out of several attempts fully sealed: the rest had at least one unsealed edge and couldn’t be salvaged: handmade dough from tipo 00 dough, and a large batch of seasoned ricotta filling, wasted, not to mention the money spent on this attachment I won’t bother using again.
Xmas gift from my children. Found difficult to use, have tried 3 different times. Ends not closed on each batch. Very messy. Will take a lot of practice. Frustrating. Don’t think it is worth the investment.
You don't need a kitchen aid mixer for this...you could stick it into the wall and it would serve the same purpose as the stand mixer. Is not powered by the mixer, makes a huge mess unless perfectly executed, MASSIVELY frustrating and not worth the stress.

I have used the ravioli maker twice. In short, it works well once you perfect the dough and your technique. You will NOT get perfect ravioli on your first try, so schedule a couple of "just for fun" sessions before trying to impress anyone. One thing I learned is the dough needs to be fairly thick or it won't seal between ravioli - 4 on the KA pasta press worked well. If you are going for that paper-thin style, better to make by hand. By the end of my second session I was competent making the cheese ravioli pictured here. With a little patience you will be able to do it too.
I'm not sure why there are so many bad reviews -- this attachment is fabulous. Like anything, it takes a bit of practice, but I was cranking out beautiful, uniform ravioli in ten minutes. Easy to use, easy to clean, and my ravioli looked like it came from an Italian market! I encourage you to try it again if you had trouble the first time around -- it's worth the effort. The Target price was well below any other retailer, so it was a great value as well.
We recently made approximately 1,500 ravioli in about 10 hours using 3 Kitchenaid mixers. We had one seasoned pro and two able newbies. Here's some tips she passed to us and I'll pass to you: 1) small batch, well rested, firm dough is your friend 2) those claw things on the bottom need to be removed! 3) complete a cycle (run the pasta sheet, then make the ravioli) 4) freeze the finished sheet and snap it apart 5) be sure the fillings are well ground. We found spinach "threads" to be an issue, but no problem with ground meat, ground chicken, or any cheese. Long day = full freezers!
I really enjoyed this attachment. I have been wanting to buy one for months and it was well worth it. It was a little difficult to get started (having enough filling, not overfilling it and making sure my pasta sheets were uniformed) but after a few tries to really worked out. A few trial and errors and a few things on my end that I could do better, but overall a good purchase! I made five sheets of ravioli in about 30 minutes! Extremely happy with the way they turned out! **I do recommend purchasing the pasta roller because it made things a lot easier and helped with getting the pasta sheets uniformed**
