what took me so long!
man that thing is great. I'm so forgetful of scraping the sides of my bowl until after I have started pouring stuff out. This is a great help!

And on a side note, I ordered it from Golda's kitchen on Monday, it was here on Wed! Awesome shipping!

I too have been thinking about one. So they're great, eh? I'd love to see a follow up in depth review on one.

I like mine for mixing but when I make icing, it adds air back in. Have you tried it for icing? I'm wondering if I'm just getting impatient and not letting it work long enough. I make sugarshack's icing.

I did use it for icing... I use indydebs icing and had no problem with it, I do tend to let the icings go for quite a while though...

I love mine, but only use it for cake mix. I broke it when using it for icing. I use the iron/medal one that came with my KA for all icings. I got a replacement cheap at Sur la Table if you have that store in your area.

LOVE my beaterblade. I never have to worry about sugar being stuck in the bottom.

It also cleans up like a breeze. If I am doing something really sticky I will sometimes give it a quick spray with PAM. It is a good trick.

I got one for Christmas and want another one (since I have 2 bowls for my KA)!! I use it for cakes and for buttercream - medium and thin consistency both. I use the Wilton class recipe and it works fine. I really love it and I just throw it in the dishwasher on the top rack to clean.

I did have to adjust the height on my KA when I got it and highly recommend doing that - there is a video (I think on YouTube) about using a dime in the bowl to adjust the height of your bowl - you just want to be able to move the dime around a little bit when you run the beater in an otherwise empty bowl.

I use it too, only for batter, it does whip a lot of air into the icing (I also use Sugarshack's), but if air bubbles are not a question (like for cupcakes), it is great for the icing too. Did I mention I love i?

Thanks for letting us know. I have been wondering about it for a while now. Guess I'll get one!

The Beater Blade actually will cream butter faster than the standard paddle attachment. Cooks Illustrated did a review on it and liked it a lot. That's what really sold me on it.

We're ordering them through our cake club here in Orlando to take advantage of a large-purchase discount. Then we'll split the shipping costs. I checked out Golda's Kitchen and her prices are higher than ordering from the company.

maybe but since i'm in canada and Golda's is canadian prices and it costs a ton to have stuff shipped to me from the states, if the company will even do it, Golda's is pretty competitive price wise.

where are you in canada and how much did shipping cost from Golda's kitchen?

I"m in southern ontario, shipping was about $6 for the beater blade, a bunch of food colourings and some other gadgets.

I use to put my beater blades in the upper rack of the dishwasher but have cracked two of them. I now handwash them.
