After Market Beater Blade
Just purchased an "after market beater blade" for a Kitchen Aid stand mixer at Golda's Kitchen in Mississauga....absolutely terrific - connects with the sides of the mixer bowl so well - no need to stop and scape sides or bottom of bowl - worth the money.
I heard that using it will void the warranty for your Kitchen Aid - proceed with caution. I think I read that in Cook's Illustrated.
Which brand of after market blade did you buy? I've heard one of them was better than the other (I think there are two major brands) but I forget which is considered better and why.
