Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by spaggy Worked like a charm
I had put this on my wedding registry and when I read the mixed reviews I almost returned it. So I figured I would give it a shot and it worked like a charm. The thing I saw that people were complaining about was leaking ravioli.
To all the people that were complaining that it is a manual crank, who cares. It has to be a manual crank or you would have filling all over the place. By having it a manual crank you can make sure that you dont have anything leaking out anywhere.
my first run though ( a dry run w/o filling) I noticed that the dough didnt quite match up. So then with my second sheet of dough I i stretched it out slightly and check for sizing and it fit great and I didnt have any leaking ravioli

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by sehamilton8 Very finicky
While I am a total fan of the KitchenAid attachments and have raved about the ice cream maker, meat grinder, sausage stuffer, pasta roller and various pasta cutters the ravioli maker was a disappointment. The raviolis are very small and the operation very finicky...overall I think it was easier to simply use the roller to make two sheets of pasta dough and hand finish them. Really not that great as tends to make messy side raviolis and they are too small for my taste much neater to fill them by hand and less waste.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by TheNip Not worth it
I have many attachments and this is the first one I cannot recommend. It is not powered by the machine, but is instead hand operated - all the machine does is provide a location to mount the attachment.
In terms of functionality, I find the attachment hard to use. Many of my ravioli come out broken, only partially filled, or otherwise unusable. Also, the elevated position of the attachment does not create the best working position.
Save yourself some cash and skip this one. Makes some sheets of pasta, get a spoon and last out blobs of filling on a sheet. Cover that with a second pasta sheet and cut out the ravioli by hand. This method is easier, faster, and all of the output will be usable, unlike the attachment where 30% of what I made ended up in the trash. After trying this attachment 3 times, I've finally given up on it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by pauline56 Made homemade raviolios and they turned out perfect.
I got a ravioli make for a Christmas and i made about 100 raviolis and they turned out great. of course, i made a meat filling. It sealed them nicely. I haven't tried a cheese filling. i am looking for a good recipe for them. but I am totally satisfied with my product. Thank you Kitchenaid. Also my husband bought me the ohter three attachments for my mixer. to roll the dough out I also made spaghetti. they turned out great too.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by chlyab I expected more.
I was so excited to finally own this attachment! This, being my number one attachment on my wish list, i was ecstatic when i actually did get it! I couldn't wait to bust it open and try that baby out! I got all the ingredients (Semolina was harder to find around here so it took a day or two) and made the dough. The dough came out fantastic and rolled perfectly with the pasta roller attachment. When it came time for the ravioli, i made sure to read all the instructions.. twice, to be sure i got it correct. Did as it said with the practice runs to "perfect the technique". I stuffed my raviolis with cheese, wanted to start out easy being the first time. The roller did not seal, not a SINGLE one. I was disappointed and tried a new technique. The second set did the same exact thing the filling was also bursting out of the unsealed pockets. I decided to re-read the instruction manual thinking that it was user error. Made a third set and turned out the same exact way. I mad sure that the pasta sheets were correctly placed on the rollers and made sure that it cover all the ends thinking that that was why my filling was leaking out and that they weren't sealing, that was not the problem. I was very disappointed. As i laid the unsealed, leaking, gooey pasta on the flour dusted wax paper to dry, it just turned into a large mush pile. I expected so much from this attachment and felt let down. I talked to a few friends and coworkers that have this same attachment and they all had the same problem, none of the raviolis sealed and ended up throwing them away. Sad that i wasted the time and ingredients for such a disaster. Hoping that kitchenaid finds the problem and fixes or comes up with a new/better attachment. I love all my kitchenaid products and I've never had any problems with any. I definitely wouldn't recommend this attachment. disappointed, to say the least.
