    Plastic warped, affects fit

    Purchased this for my 5qt artisan design mixer and sadly the plastic is slightly warped to the point the shield does not sit evenly on the bowl. The result is a shield that easily falls half into the bowl, making a bigger mess than without it. I am going to try to slowly heat it and see if I can get it to cool "flat", but honestly, who has the time to fix something that should have worked right out of the box? I think the packaging allowed the room for the warping to occur, which KitchenAid could fix by encasing this in a tight-fitting plastic molded insert as they do other accessory items. I would recommend his item, but with a warning of "test first".

    Works Fine If Expectations Are Reasonabale

    This cover worked fine on our 5 Qt KG25H lift stand mixer. It does fit a bit less snugly than expected with about 1/4 inch of back and forth movement, but I think that is by design. Its marketed to fit several models with slightly different bowl diameters and probably doesn't fit any of them perfectly. However, it does the job as intended and the looser fit makes it a snap to re-position the cover while in use and remove/reinstall whenever needed. It does seem a little overpriced like many of this brand's accessories, but if you can get it on sale its worth it.

    We purchased a KitchenAid - Professional 5 Plus Series Bowl-Lift Stand Mixer and this pouring shield was listed as an accessory. Unfortunately, it didn't fit but was for the smaller Artisan series mixer for which we already have a shield. So we had to return it and Best Buy didn't carry the correct size to fit the 5 Plus Series bowl. Nevertheless, it's a good product if it fits and Best Buy's great customer service took care of the return.

    I purchased this to go on a KSM105GBCMC 5qt glass bowl Tilt-Head Stand Mixer. I knew it wasn't designed for the glass bowl, but I needed a shield so, based on other reviews, I purchased it anyway. It doesn't really fit, but it does sit on top of the bowl and provides a good bit of cover. It's much better than not having one at all. If a shield comes out for this bowl, I might get it to replace this one, but it does the job good enough for me. 5 stars because it's not designed for my bowl and still works.

    KitchenAid - KN1PS Pouring Shield for Select KitchenAid Stand Mixers - Clear KitchenAid Pouring Shield for Select KitchenAid Stand Mixers: The one-piece pouring shield fits onto your mixing bowl to help you add ingredients without making a mess. It also helps keep lightweight ingredients like flour from flying out of the bowl when the mixer is on.

    Adding ingredients just got a lot easier

    It makes it a lot easier adding ingrediants. I seems to be a messy cook anyway, so this just makes it easier for me to get all of the ingrediants into the bowl instead of just most of the ingrediants. I wish is would work on the Ice Cream Maker, especially since the mixer needs to be running when you put all of the ingrediants in. Hopefully KitchenAid figures that out and can make adjustments to their design.

    Works as expected

    Kind of said it all. The shield works just as advertised. Keeps things neater as I add ingredients. Sometimes I find I have trouble getting my ingredients into the chute without making a mess on the counter. (I'm sure I would make a bigger mess without it.) The best part was that I saved money and a lengthy shipping time by buying it from Best Buy rather than Kitchen Aid directly.

    Okay, but not great

    The bowl shield did not perform quite as anticipated. Flour added through the 'shoot' flew everywhere, all over the counter and other counter-top appliances. Eggs added through the 'shoot' were splashed up through the opening just under the 'shoot'. May not use again, due to the mess created. I worked cleaner without it.

    Doesn't fit the glass bowl

    I generally use the glass bowl for my Kitchenaid mixer and had hoped this would fit. Unfortunately, it doesn't fit the glass bowl, so I use it on the standard steel bowl that came with the mixer. The shield works great when adding flour or sugar, it keeps everything in the bowl and not dusting the counter. I would recommend.

    Size is misleading..

    The size is misleading. The pour shield information does not tell you if it fits 3.5, 4.5 or 5 quart bowl. I bought this at the same time as my 5 qt. Kitchen Aid mixer. It didn't fit. Maybe it would fit a 3.5 qt. mixer. Best Buy doesn't sell the correct size. I would recommend it IF it was the correct size.

    Kitchen Aide Mixer Pouring Shield

    I've used this several times, but I think its easier and less messy to not used it at all. Every time I turn the machine on with the shield attached, the batter squirts outs, I've tried holding the shield down because it doesn't clip on and that doesn't help either.

    May not be a necessary accessory

    When I bought the KitchenAid mixer on line this item popped up as a great accessory so I went ahead and purchased it. Unfortunately, it is for a smaller bowl than what came with the mixer. So I will either end up returning it or purchase a second smaller bowl.

    This does not fit the 500 Professional 4.7 l mixing bowl although it shows up as an accessory with the mixer. It is for standing mixers with bowls with a smaller sized opening this is not recommended for the 500 Pro, so I can not review how it works

    The pouring shield works pretty well and comes in handing for adding ingredients while mixing. But it doesn't stay in place very well. It just rests on the bowl with three little notches to keep it in place, the smallest bump can knock it off, which is rather annoying. Could be much better.

    Solid attachment for Kitchenaid stand mixers

    I would recommend one of these splash guards for anyone who owns a Kitchenaid stand mixer. It's basically universal for all newer models and fits easily to cover the top side of the bowl. If you make a lot of things involving flour, it's a no brainer.

    This one is for a smaller bowl ...

    This pouring shield is for a much smaller in diameter bowl so it would have fallen inside the bowl and not usable with my KitchenAid Stand Mixer. I did find the correct pouring shield for my 5 quart Lift Bowl stand mixer. Returned this one without any problems.

    I ordered this accessory after my wife and I used the kitchen aid mixer and we were having a hard time adding ingredients without making a mess. My wife said you should have purchased the pouring shield so I when online and got it ordered. No more messes when adding ingredients.

    Purchased this when my wife was looking for something to help dump materials into her mixer. This thing did the trick. Great price for a simple piece of add on plastic. Only question would be why this isn't included with the mixer at initial purchase.

    Then this shield is for you! With this shield you're able to keep those dry ingredients inside the bowl easier! The wet ingredients, easily poured in with no spilling over the side! I love this addition, or shall I say extension to my Kitchen Aid mixer!
