Does anyone have this and does it really work? Any negatives? I'm kind of in awe and disbelief right now.

I'd love to know too, I want one soooo bad but don't want to waste my money on it.

Edited to add:
Just noticed they have it for the 5qt tilt head mixer. I have a 4.5qt tilt head, anyone think there would be a problem with using in it mine?

Love it! There are some videos on youtube demonstrating how they work. SeriousCakes also have a video using it too.

love it, love it. It is great, very little need to scrape sides of bowl. I have had it only for a couple of months, wish I had it sooner. SO WORTH THE $

also, make sure you get the right one for your model of KA, they are different depending on the size of bowl and whether it is tilt or arm lift

chelle - they make it for the 4.5qt tilt head mixer too. I have it and it works wonderfully, almost too good, you don't have to mix for as long a time as you normally do.

where are you in MA, I'd be happy to let you test drive mine on your mixer if your close by (wilmington)

There is also the same paddle available for the 4.5 qt. Check Google for sellers. HTH icon_biggrin.gif

Hi, I have been wanting one also. I did talk to someone who has one and she loves it. Said she doesnt have to scrap the bowl down hardly at all.

I've been eyeing those too - since seeing it on SeriousCakes' YouTube.

For Canadians, Golda's Kitchen sells them.

Thanks you guys! I had never heard of this before and wasn't sure it was for real or not. I'm glad to hear it's for real and I can't wait to put it to work. Maybe there really is something to help making buttercream a little easier. thumbs_up.gif

I just ordered mine, I have only used it once (I just got it on Monday) but it's fantastic! I am in Canada and ordered it from Cayne's Housewares, it was $29.99, after tax and shipping it was $43 and I got it in about a week.
If you go to www.beaterblade.com there is a list of retailers and online retailers and you can search by country. There was only a couple for canada and Cayne's was the cheapest.

Check out this video, it's a side by side comparison of the KA flat beater and the beater blade. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z_lSWHgVZEA&feature=related

Yep, lots of CCers use it, you can search the forums for "beater blade" (but you'd better choose "all words" or else you'll get a zillion results.) I got mine a few months ago after reading about it here thumbs_up.gif. Love it, it works great.
