    Next rant....

    Does anyone make any good attachments for the Kitchenaid stand mixers? I have the pasta rollers, which seem to be a good solid METAL construction similar to my old hand rollers, but everything else seems to be cheap Chinese plastic. Further whenever I look on-line all I see is complaints about the quality, falling apart, leaving traces in the food etc.

    Such a shame. I wonder whether there are old pieces that would work better after being refurbished>

    Actualy, there is a German Co. that makes a decent metal meat grinder for the K.A. and K.A. makes an all metal grain mill

    Yes you're right about the metal grain mill, but I can't see myself using one. (shame).

    Thanks for the pointer. I found this....

    Is this the one you're talking about? Unfortunately seems no longer available.

    But then I also found this...

    and then this

    Surprising that the further back you go, the better the quality..... no, not really.

    Ah well.
