New Kitchenaid Mixer Professional Series

I received this ka mixer for Christmas, the bowl lift model, and I am having a real problem removing the bowl from the mixer. I have put the bowl down, removed the mixer attachment, and the instructions say to lift directly up on the bowl and it will come off. However, the spring latch will not unlock. Can anyone help?

  1. I have one of these. Try lifting starting with the handle instead of straight up. Also if you post this to the Cookware site they guys there will likely be able to help.

    Good luck!

    1. Grab the handle firmly, then push upward. It takes quite a bit of force--I find it easier to remove if I push it upward slightly, unhooking the two sides, then lifting it out of the rear latching mechanism.
