Another convert !


To the bowl-scraper paddle for the KitchenAid stand mixers.

It works very well ~ I use the 5-quart mixer more often so I ordered that size to try it out. I'm sold!

I like it so much I'm going back to order one for one for the 6-quart mixer.

Has anyone else tried these? Any reviews? I'd love to hear!

They are available at amazon.com:


If you order, just make sure you select the correct size (5 or 6 quart) for your KA model ~ and select the tilt head models or the bowl lift model. They run from between $23. and $29. depending upon the model.

  1. Hi, Mari: thanks for commenting on these! I've been wondering whether they're worth the investment (and I wasn't sure till now that they were even available for my KA - five quart, lift, let's see, at least 20 years old and still going strong).

  2. My KitchenAid is still going strong, and I bought it in 1988 or 89. I will be delighted to buy it something! It deserves it.

  3. My adorable KA is at least 23 years old. The bowl says K45 (I'm assuming it's 4.5qt). I think I'm out of luch because I don't see a Metro beater that would fit. Oh well!

  6. Mari, thanks for the endorsement and review. I've been trying to decide between the Beater Blade and the SideSweep.

  9. I have been dreaming of and asking for a KitchenAid standing mixer for so many birthdays, Hanukkahs and Christmases but have yet to receive one! :-( It almost happened this year until, 2 weeks before the holidays my computer died! So I got my new MacBook. Lovely! But still dreaming of that KitchenAid and using a crappy hand mixer! Lucky you!

  10. Thanks for letting us know about this attachment, Mari. That's the only thing I haven't liked about my Kitchenaid in the 25 years I've had it - the constant scraping of the bowl.

  13. Thank you KA fans, for taking the time to leave comments! xo
    I hope you are as pleased with the performance as I am.

    Dragana, *sigh* my first KitchenAid was a KA45A (1979). I think it's still my favorite; lots of happy food memories associated with that one. It's still going strong down in the Bay Area house in CA. It is a real work horse all right.

    Cynthia, thanks for the heads up on the similar attachment made by KA. I probably would have opted for that one, being an authentic KA part, had I known about it!

    Jaimie, Hang in there ! It will be worth the wait, and you'll appreciate it all the more. :)

    Thanks again everyone!

  14. Yup, Lisa's got one and we used it to make our cupcakes this past weekend, works liek a charm. Though she says that you need to watch your beating times with it, and lessen the time used then the recipe calls for, becuase it does a more efficient job then the standard.

  17. I've never seen a more beautiful picture of a beater! LOL My 5 qt lift-up KA is 20 years this year. I'm going to have to make a cake and why not use the new scraper paddle as a celebration! Thanks Mari... I've seen these but never heard about how they would work.
