Never heard of it before. Interesting idea. My biggest hesitation would be if using it would void the warranty on my KA.
I just bought this a few weeks ago at Williams-Sonoma. I've only used it once...its ok so far. I have a few things to use it for this weekend so I can give you a better report after that!
I have seen threads about this on here. Try a search. People have said it's a good product, I believe. There are also Youtube videos galore demonstrating it side by side with the regular paddle.
Her whole blog is wonderful!
Looks good to me. I think I may want one. I just wonder how they made the attachment universal to all mixers.
I have one.... I LOVE IT.
That looks so cool! I think I might have to get one sometime soon. I'm always stopping the mixer to scrape down the bowl...what a great idea!
Never saw it before but I like that it's made in the USA
Actually mine is a little different but same concept...the one I have is called scrape-a-bowl and its just for KA's
That looks remarkably similar to the paddle blade of my K5 mixer. Is it the same thing?
I love mine!
I have one and I love it, love it, love it
I couldn't live without mine. Love it, love it, love it!
I'm getting one! Thanks for sharing
LOVE the beater blade. Havn't used the regular one since I got it. Rarely have to scrape down the bowl. I am very protective of it and always hand wash it. I'm afraid to put it in the dishwasher as it is made of hard plastic and rubber.
So how much are they?

cats242~was reading about both blades, and yours says it's only for the tilted head KA. For those considering it, make sure you know the difference between the blades!
Hi everyone! I had one and loved it. The first one I bought broke while trying to beat some cold butter. So I called the manufacturer and they were really nice and gave me a new one. When I got the new one I used it a couple of times and then when I went to change the blade out it was stuck in my machine. I have a 7 qt Cuisinart mixer. I called Cuisinart and they told me to send the machine in for service because it was still under warranty. I did not mention to them it was this blade because I want my machine fixed even if I have to pay for it. I am hoping that the blade does not void my warranty or I am still hoping that they are able to fix the machine because it was very expensive. I am still waiting to here. So I am back to my 5 qt KA. So, I guess what I am saying is that when it worked it was great. Hope this helps.
tiggy2~ I think your SideSwipe is the original one. Now a lot of companies are taking advantage of this. I can't afford to have something go wrong, so I think I'm sticking to the good ol' spatula and doing it by hand. But all of them are great ideas!!! Especially for frosting.
To answer the question about cost--I got one for around $25-$30 from Amazon. I have since seen them in Le Gourmet Chef and a friend of mine purchased hers from a store that repairs small appliances. I don't think the base price varied too much from place to place. Obviously, you have to add on shipping if you mail order the item.
I believe there are styles made for both the tilt-head mixers and the bowl-lift style mixers. You do just have to make sure you pick up/order the correct one.
i absolutely love mine
it makes a huge difference
