This is a popular, mainly because it makes freshly made homemade ice cream! If you’re on a diet, it’ll make frozen yoghurt and sorbet too.

This pasta making attachment comes with six different screens which make spaghetti, lasagne, tagliatelle, rigatoni, and large/small macaroni. You need to be precise with the ingredients when you’re making pasta, so a measuring beaker is also included. Simply throw your dough into the chute and the top, and your pasta comes out through whatever screen you’ve chosen.

The juice flows into the beaker underneath, which holds 600ml of juice, and has an spout for pouring your juice into a glass.

Three glass mills are included; these are used to process your ingredients, and then you can pop on the lid and store in the same container.
AT641 Continuous Juicer Attachment
The citrus press attachment is great for jucing the odd orange, but this juicer is much more versatile. You can use it to whip up any kind of fruit or vegetable juice. Simply cut up your ingredients into pieces, and feed them into the chute at the top. It’s a centrifugal juicer that separates the pulp from the juice. The juice goes into its 1 litre jug, and the pulp collects in the included pulp bin. Great for more serious juicers!
