    Not correct one for my KitchenAid mixer ...

    This Flex Edge beater is for the Tilt Head KitchenAid 5 quart stand Mixer. It is not the correct one for the Bowl Lift KitchenAid 5 quart stand Mixer. I did find the correct one with some research. The thing about KitchenAid stand mixers, you need the correct implements for the KitchenAid Mixer you have it does make a difference if you have a Tilt Head or Bowl Lift model along with the correct bowl size, these are important facts to have handy when you are looking for implements (extra beaters and etc.) without this information you may not get the correct thing to use for your mixer.

    Makes baking easier

    I've had a Kitchen Aid mixer I purchased years ago for my baking frenzies. I rarely used it because it was so difficult to scrap the batter on the side of the bowl while the bowl was in the mixing stand. I saw the mixer paddle with the rubber scrapper that is shaped to scrap the size of the bowl and I thought I'd try it. I LOVE it! It makes mixing dough sooooo easy. Caution: if you're mixing back-to-back batches of dough, after you wash the paddle after batch #3, let it dry overnight. After 3 back-to-back uses and washings, the rubber gets a little soft and doesn't scrap the side of the bowl as well as when the rubber is stiff.

    This makes all the difference in a nice smooth mix. I use it most for things like cakes and waffle/pancake batter. It helps get rid of all the powdery parts you can get clumped to the side of the bowl. it also helps keep the sides clean and enables a better use of the entire set of ingredients. A must have accessory. Just don't go too fast, or you'll have loads of clean-up to do. I started out at 1 and gradually moved it no higher than speed 3. i also find that the white blade coating cleans up faster than the standard metal one.

    This was my mistake but I figured I might not be alone in this: I didn't realize that this beater was not made to fit my 6 quart bowl. The photo clearly shows a tilt head mixer but for some reason I didn't question whether they were the same or not. They aren't. It looked the same size to me in the store. I'm sure it's nice; I like the coating instead of bare metal, seems easier to clean, and would be better at scraping the sides than my stock model, but this did not work for me.

    I purchased this for my 5qt artisan design mixer and couldn't be happier about the decision. My stand came with the standard beater (metal without silicone edge), and I can't bring myself to use anything other than this new one! Perfect for scraping the bowl, perfect for helping with a smoother mix and perfectly easy to clean with the non-stick coating. I am going to purchase another one (or two) just in case!!!

    A nice addition to the KitchenAid Mixer

    I've always liked the oscillating motion of the beater in the KitchenAid stand mixer because it incorporates more of the ingredients than the beater(s) in a standard mixer. But the beater that comes with the mixer occasionally misses some things on the side of the bowl, requiring a manual scrape-down. The flexible edge on this beater definitely takes care of most of that problem, although occasionally, it still helps to scrape the bowl down with a spatula.

    I just recently had to purchase a new Kitchenaid mixer after my 18 year old one died. I cannot live without one, as I cook and bake a lot, and use my mixer very frequently. This is a simple tool, but extremely helpful as I can put my batter in, turn the mixer on, and don't have to stop it to scrape the bowl. It helps me make less of a mess and be more efficient. In fact, I keep it on the mixer all the time and never use the original beater any more.

    Was surprised to find that Best Buy carried this product. The price was better than we expected. We had even checked on line and the price at Best Buy was as good or better than Amazon. I have found the blade/paddle to works well. Like how it scrapes the sides of the mixing bowl.
