Waited a literal lifetime to get my kitchenaid stand mixer. Beyond excited. Came with stunning glass bowl with lid. Then I went to use it. Flour everywhere!! I said: "No problem, I'll just buy a splatter shield". Come to find out, most unfortunately, there is none to fit the bowl. Very tiresome as well as frustrating and truly disappointed. Seems as though I'd have to buy an additional bowl just to be able to then buy a splatter shield to fit said bowl. This makes no sense. One more thing; getting the bowl to sit right in order for it to lock in place should not be as difficult as it is.
Rated 2 out of 5Â by Sad in nc Beware of the glass bowl
I love love love the 5qt mixer i purchased but it came with the glass bowl which looks very nice and is handy for seeing your ingredients but the 3rd time it was used the very bottom where the bowl locks in cracked with tiny shards of glass getting in my finger. I have wanted one of these mixers my whole life and after spurging on the purchase i am disappointed in the glass quality and wish mine had come with the metal bowl. Now im stuck with a 300 counter decoration or spending 60-70 to buy a new bowl or using it without it being locked in place.

I have had this glass bowl for about a year now. I had just made some cookies and hand washed the bowl and set it down to dry on a t-towel on my counter. I then put another bowl down next to it and it must have hit the glass bowl just right because it made a sound and I noticed a huge chip on the rim. :( I love my KitchenAid Mixer and use it almost every weekend for baking but I was disappointed that such a minor tap from another bowl [from one of my vintage - 50 year old FireKing jadite bowls] could do the type of damage it did.

I was gifted a bowl for Christmas as I only had the metal bowl. I could never get the bowl to sit in place and it would move around so much so i had to hold it with both hands and only on the lowest speed. I received a replacement bowl after contacting kitchenaid. Sad to say the same thing happened. It won't lock into place. For something that costs so much money I am really disappointed.
