Loose fitting on 5 quart bowl.

Brian McGarry, Amazon
12 January 2015
  • Summary: I was hoping the newer 1-piece design would be better than the 2-piece design, but it's not. Used it on my wives brand new 5qt stainless bowl and it fits loosely and makes it a bit more difficult to add some ingredients. It's more of a hassle to put on than is really worth it.

Is old better than new?

  • Excerpt: I have owned a kitchen aid mixer since 1978. My husband thoughtfully purchased me the anniversary edition in 2009- for Christmas. I gave my daughter my 1978 mixer- thank goodness she lives close.

Poor quality

  • Excerpt: We got this new for Christmas 2011 so it is only about 14 1/2 months old. It has already quit working, the mixer part won't turn. The motor runs but it will not turn. I assume there is a gear of some type in it that may be worn out. How do I check it out and see about replacing it?

Maybe I got a lemon

  • Summary: Like many, I always dreamed of owning a Kitchen Aid stand mixer. My Mom had bought me an Oster Kitchen Center many years ago, and I used it for making dough and other things, but I always coveted a Kitchen Aid.

Maybe this was defective but...

J. Lee, Amazon
25 September 2011
  • Summary: My mixer couldn't stand up to its intended primary purpose: as bread dough kneader. Every time I put the hook in, locked the tilt head in place, then began to knead the dough mixture, the tilt mechanism would shimmy out of lock...

made good cookies...but not powerful enough for bread

corishabrooke, Amazon
20 June 2011
  • Summary: it says it holds 8 cups of flour, but when I had 6.5 cups of flour mixing it smelled like burnt engine. the bread dough was spilling out of the top. Worked well for icing and cookie dough, but not powerful enough (or a large enough bowl) for making bread.

Not a good product at all.

RFW, Amazon
2 May 2010
  • Summary: Even though I read some bad reviews about this product I bought it anyway. I was hoping I would be luckier. Nope. It does not fit properly and it stills let wet ingredients as well as flour get everywhere: countertop/floor. Not a good buy.

Barbara Appleby, Amazon
6 March 2015
  • Summary: For the amount of money it cost, I do not think it does a very good job. It really doesn't sit on the bowl very well and when whisking at high speed the gap is too large and mixture was flying out all over.

Expensive piece of plastic

1 March 2015
  • Summary: Well yes it does help prevent mess everywhere, but it does slip about. Needs to be designed so clicks/screws in place. A very expensive piece of plastic in my opinion.
