Appliances

Why NSI Protection Plus?

Our service plan is an economical way to extend the terms of your product's manufacturer parts & labor warranty.

Most manufacturer's limited warranties leave customers with no protection against the rising cost of repairs.

Even the best products can malfunction and the most minor repairs can cost hundreds.

About NSI Protection Plus

Administered by Warrantech and insured by AmTrust Financial, NSI Protection Plus is the largest service network in the industry with 30 years of building the network and over 22 million in paid claims.

The most comprehensive repair plans in the business!

  • Day one coverage on special features
  • Removal and reinstallation coverage
  • $25 Laundry credit (Washers and Dryers)
  • 5 year appliance contracts include 10 year major component coverage
  • $250 Food credit (per incident, eligible products)
  • The only true "No Lemon Guarantee" in the business
  • No "CAP" on repairs or replacement, unlimited repairs.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

I have been using the grinding attachment for I don't know how many years now. When I went through a divorce, my first purchase for my new kitchen was another Kitchen-aid & grinding attachment.

Storage box and missing parts

7/16/2017

I was given the KSMPEXTA as a gift, when unboxing there was no brush or plastic storage housing on top of the attachment. I have viewed several videos and all of them show these parts as included. When I research the KitchenAid website it mentions that the box it comes in is to be used for storage; I put the box out for trash and had to retrieve it. The box is large, most kitchens don't have extra storage space. Also had to research videos on disassembly and cleaning.

Touch and Go

5/4/2017

This is my one KitchenAid item that I'm not so sure about. I have tried to use this a few times, and really have not been very successful. Theses failures could definitely be all of my fault, as the pasta dough recipe could be off...alas I have had problem with this jamming and even overheating my mixer (I almost had a meltdown myself). Its been hard for me to find the right consistency to get the dough to come out like it's supposed to. Also, it's fairly labor intensive to clean, I have to soak the part in soapy water to get the dough out of the presses (which can't be good for the parts). All in all, when it worked it was great but I'm slightly afraid to use it because of the overheating. I will definitely try it again, if I can find a better dough recipe.

Kitchenaid Pasta Press KSMPEXTA

4/22/2017

I have wanted this attachment for such a long time, I was beyond excited when I finally received it in the mail. The recipe was easy, the attachment was very easy to figure out, and the whole process was fun and exciting. It does make very tasty pasta. I will continue to use this over and over again. My only complaint so far is trying to clean the dough out of those pasta discs. Those little wholes are not easy to clean out. Even with that problem, I still love this attachment and would buy it any day. Highly recommended for the pasta loving families like mine!

We love making all homemade organic food and this really helps. I feel its more affordable than the pasta roller/cutter and you get way more kinds of cuts. Very simple to put on and clean. This is a huge help in the kitchen!

not sure but wanting to give it a thorough testing

2/16/2017

The process is slower than I thought it would be, a lot slower, but I think that with my usual pasta recipe I might have better results as the KA recipe appeared to be excessively dry. What makes it more trying is the loudness of the mixer as it is processing. It is hard to listen to for an extended period of time. What I like, the pasta can be made in advance and dried and appropriately stored. I would wish for a choice of an angel hair pasta plate and fettuccini plate since I feel there is a certain redundancy to the plates already offered.

Great all around use

1/13/2017

Got this for Christmas and have used several times already. Saves me a lot of time in food preparation and is easy to clean. Takes practice to stuff sausage, the chef's on TV make it look so easy. The slicing blades are great for many different recipes, and the shredder attachments save time and clean easily. I no longer buy pre-shredded Parmesan anymore either. And coleslaw is a breeze now.

Pasta Fun

1/12/2017

This "gadget" was so much fun to use. I made several different shapes of pasta. We ate some that day. DELICIOUS! I also froze some for later. When my grandchildren come for "Grandma Camp" this summer, making pasta will be on the definite to do list & on the menu!

Poor Quality at KitchenAid prices.

Bought the high priced attachment combo less than two years ago, expecting KitchenAid quality. After light household use the housing cracked through rendering the product useless.

poor quality

12/19/2016

This attachment pac is expensive compared to how long the components last. I used the shredder once and it developed 2 cracks in the housing. The grinder housing also developed a major crack and I'm not sure if it is safe to use. I contacted Kitchenaid and they told me the parts are only warrantied for a year. Replacement parts will be $50. No part like that should fail with minimal use. Disappointed in Kitchenaid's lack of responsibility for these defective products.

wish attachments were half as good as the mixer

12/5/2016

Love my lift mixer which I have regularly used throughout the last ten plus years but went to use my slicer attachment yesterday and saw plastic housing was cracked in several locations where the shaft goes into the housing . Then looked at the grinder and was also cracked in similar location. Only had used a few times each and was looking forward to using more now that I have more time. Stored properly and in closed kitchen cabinet in a controlled environment ( ie heated and AC) so never should have cracked. So of course all my other attachments are now useless too. See photos.

Cracked Cases

I have had my mixer of over 20 years and other than the bowl being too small for some recipes (bread) I am thrilled. I cannot say the same for the grinder or slicer. The mixer was a gift and I also received the attachments, but never used them. One of my family members has developed health problems and is now on a low calorie, low sugar and low sodium diet. As a result I have to make everything. Last night I got the grinder out of the box to make sausage and was very disappointed to see that the case was cracked, I checked the slicer and it is cracked too. Cannot afford to replace them, so I am stuck with them until they break.

Great gift

11/6/2016

I got this as a gift and I have to say I've used it more than I thought I ever would. I have used this by buying turkey breast and grinding it up for burgers or meatballs. I have also used this make hash browns and shred up blocks of cheese.

Much improved from previous design

10/20/2016

I really like the new design. With the integrated slicer and the downward angle, I didn't have an issue with pasta sticking together like in the old design. The only issue I had was I didn't get the pasta plate seated properly and so it didn't extrude as well as it should. Now that I know the issue and what to look for, I don't expect this to be an issue next time. A more positive tab for plate seating would be handy...maybe not as much as was on the old plates that married to the grinder, but certainly something that shows you're engaged before you screw on the bezel. I would like to see more plates for purchase (fettuccine, lasagna, and linguine...the first two were available in the old design) but I am pleased with what is available when you get this and look forward to trying other styles.

Fun and very easy!

I love this attachment. It's very versatile and I am so happy that I can now make pasta to my own specifications without paying through the ear to get "specialty" grain blends. Can't wait to try some New recipes!

Gourmet Pasta Press

7/11/2016

This is an excellent attachment. It takes pasta making to the next level. I've use this for Ziti and small macaroni in soups and Mac & Cheese. Very easy to set-up and use. My family was very impressed with the results and the flavor is so much more then the store box pasta.

I'm in love!

6/5/2016

My first attempt at making spaghetti left much to be desired. The dough did indeed need to be very dry. Many of the strands broke apart when I placed them on a floured tray. It ended up tasting ok but I knew I could do better. There are so many dough recipes out there. Some say don't add eggs, salt, oil, water...others say do. I read about a pasta flour (00 semolina) and found it at an Italian grocery. It's imported from Italy. I found a recipe from Mario Batali and adapted it a little. I made rigatoni last night and it couldn't have come out more perfect! The dough was easy to handle and came through the press flawlessly. The pasta was smooth and rich. This is the recipe I used: 2 c 00 semolina flour 2 c all purpose flour 3 eggs 1/2 c warm water I used the Kitchenaid flat beater to mix all the ingredients at speed 2 for 30 seconds and then used the dough hook at speed 2 to knead the dough for 2 minutes. I then hand kneaded the dough for about a minute, formed it into a ball, and wrapped it tightly in plastic wrap. I let it "rest" for almost an hour. This step is very important. Once the dough was ready, I placed the rigatoni disc on the press and started feeding walnut sized balls into the press and set to 6. Within 10 seconds, the noodles started coming out. Never had to use the combo tool to push it through and the wire cutter worked perfectly. If you fill the auger with dough balls, it probably will clog. I never added more than 2 at a time. The entire pasta making from start to finish (not counting the resting time) took less than an hour. I love this press and have a feeling I'll be using it AT LEAST once a week. There is nothing better than fresh pasta!

Fresh Pasta is a treat!

5/26/2016

The Gourmet Pasta Press Is a perfect Kitchen Aid tool to make fresh pasta. It's as easy as 1-2-3. The dough (which was too dry and crumbly per recipe instructions, so we slowly added small amounts of water until the dough resembled "play dough" consistency) is made in the bowl of your Kitchen Aid mixer with the dough hook and the Pasta Press is attached to the mixer to process the dough into the pasta form of your choice. Our initial batch of Rigatoni was perfect and tasty! This machine is not fast, but it gets the job done very well. The built in pasta cutter is perfect for cutting pasta in your desired length. We placed plastic trays lined with wax paper on the counter directly under the pasta press, so when we cut the pasta it landed on the tray. We had employed three inter-changeable trays, so we could separate the pasta in single layers for cooking later or drying and storing. First clean-up was a challenge, as there are press pieces that can be wash and some press pieces should not be washed. We figured that out with a learning curve of hands on maintenance. Next time will be better. The Pasta press was well worth the investment. We hope to have fun making pasta as a family project and enjoy all those Italian meals together.

Good so far

4/30/2016

Once I trusted my experience and instinct and quit trying to get the KitchenAid recipes to work everything went fine. Of course the overly dry kindergarten paste that their basic egg pastor recipe makes gummed up the bucatini dye so bad it required surgery to correct. If you use their recipe add another egg, a generous teaspoon of oil and another tablespoon of water.

You have to make it right, no flat noodles

3/24/2016

Many of the complaints here involve the dough not working correctly with the press which is a recepie problem. Once you figure out a recepie that works for you this device works as designed and is pretty simple. My main complaint is that there are no flat noodle options like fettuccine and I have yet to see pressing plates other than what comes with the product.

Am I doing something wrong?

3/2/2016

I love the idea of this pasta press and it works fine. Easy to clean if you let the left-over dough dry. However, two problems - 1. Pasta edges get pressed together when cutting so tubes are not open on both ends. 2. I made some rigatoni according to white flour recipe, let it dry and froze it. When I cooked it up, cooking over 10 minutes, it was still hard and almost crunchy and some broke apart when stabbing with a fork.

Not worth the $ or time

3/1/2016

My son gave me this for Christmas and I was thrilled....until I used it! Used the recipe for the pasta dough..was not happy. Then when I cleaned it it, was a disaster. The designers did not take the time to make pasta and clean. The plates should come apart for easy clean up. So want to return this but my son can't find the receipt. I have tried this out with different plates and it is always the same. What a shame!

A waste of time

3/1/2016

The attachment was a big disappointment. I have tried several dies for different shapes, some where alright and others were not. The fusilli extruded the dough flat, not the spiral shape they are supposed to be. I was concerned with using the extruder, because my mixer would get too hot. I made an appointment with my local William Sonoma with one of their product people. He was very helpful, but had some similar issues. His fusilli did not twist either. I have made fresh pasta for over 30 years, but this was my introduction to shaped pasta, I am disappointed.

Not worth it.

2/19/2016

I purchased this in December. I really wish I would have read the reviews. The recipes in the book do not work. I am going to try some of the ideas people had in their reviews. I hope I can finally make some pasta that is this appliance is supposed to produce. So far, not worth the money at all.

Bought this 3 months ago Still not thrilled

2/4/2016

Bought this 3 months ago. Have difficulty cleaning. Tried numerous receipes not efficient in use. Takes way too much time and machine is has to take a break. I have several other attachments that are not difficult nor do they seem to put this much stress on mixer.

Great attachment

Well made (in Italy) pasta/spaghetti extruder for your KitchenAid mixer. You need to make sure the dough balls you insert are the right consistency otherwise it takes longer to extrude the pastas. My mom & I are enjoying making fresh pasta together. A bit pricey.

Liked but having problems with fusilli.

7/24/2015

I bought the past press this week and came with the rigatoni plate broken. I called KitchenAid and they take care of the problem immediately. Thumbs up to customer service. I'll receive a new plate by mail. But the reason i'm not completely satisfied is because I cannot get a fusilli right. It comes strait and not on the shape of a fusilli, I'm not sure if I have to make a very stiff dough or let it dry a little before the extrusion or if the problem is on the fusilli plate. I would love to hear some tips and tricks about making the fusilli. Today I did the large macarroni and it turned out great. Really like it but I want to love it!!
