No problem with the quality of the KA roller (KPSA) or cutters (I have the KPRA
Pasta Roller Set which was all they had when I got mine - KPSA roller, fettuccine cutter and linguine cutter and love it because that is all I'm really interested in) - just the price. IMHO - you can get more bang for your bucks from the Imperia especially if you want to to get more cutters. And, KA marketing is starting to really cheese my grits ... if you look at the ad for the KPCA
"Pasta Maker" attachment - thick noodle cutter and angel hair pasta cutter - you have to read the manual to find out you need the KPSA pasta roller in order to use them. I would advise anyone to read the manual on the Pasta Maker Plates (SNPA
) before blowing the money on this extruder attachment. It makes RP look good!
And you don't even want to get me started on the KRAV
"Ravioli Maker" - which for $125 only uses your KA mixer as a stand to hold it - you have to crank it by hand to use it ...
My kids don't have KA's - so for Christmas a couple or four years ago I got my daughter an Atlas and my sons the Imperia (it was all I could get at the time) and the Atlas and Imperia both worked just as good as my KA. They have all since then purchased cutters for their favorite pasta shapes ... only costs them about $15, each.
