Kitchenaid spatula mixer blade

Has anyone seen or tried this? I hate having to stop the mixer and scrape down the sides. This would be great if it worked.

  1. Looks very interesting. Can't imagine that it wouldn't work, obviously not going to work equally well for all mixing chores (nothing does!).

    I wonder why KA didn't buy 'em out...

      KA probably didn't buy them out because they also fit hamilton beach and cuisinart mixers. it's funny, one of the things i like better about my cuisinart than the KA is that the blades/utensils get much closer to the sides & bottom of the bowl, so i wouldn't even see the need to get one for a cuisinart.

    2. We actually need a new paddle as ours is the coated one & is starting to chip. At $25 seems steep but I haven't priced kitchen aides yet.

        This isn't a replacement paddle... it's a sleeve that fits over your existing paddle.

          No!! It is a replacement. You don't use the old paddle. This is a paddle in itself.

      2. I saw this before xmas, now I'm waiting for the version that fits mine, the video on the site is pretty convincing.

        1. Chowser, I have never sen or heard of them but I am defiantly interested in obtaining them to try.

          I wish KA would drop the silly white plastic coating on the paddle blade, and just sell them with a polished finish, like they do on the Hobart and current commercial stuff. I took a razer blade and cut the coating off my home 5 Qt professional mixer at home.

            The Pro models do have polished aluminum attachments.

          2. I just ordered one I'll let you know how it works.

                Well...I ordered one up on the 6th and it came in the mail today. Looks good, it's light weight made mostly of nylon and silicone but the connection point to the mixer is aluminum. Haven't used it yet but the weekend is coming.

                  That was fast! Let us know how it works. Thanks!

                      OK, I threw together a Smoked Salmon spread today and this thing works great. Completely sweeps the sides clean and gets that crazy bottom bump clean too. Seems like a good product to me. They say it is top rack dishwasher safe but washing it by hand was no problem.

                        I'm so glad to hear your review!

                        I've been see sawing back and forth whether to pull the trigger on this one. But if you say it can scrape the side clean from cream cheese... seems like a good product!

                          A friend came over later today with a cake and used it to make a butter cream icing and it was fantastic.

                      2. re: Eric in NJ

                        I just got one too -- the damn thing actually works!
