I had a sideswipe and it started to break. I had it for about 15 years, so I went to get another one. They were out of stock (the 6qt size). So I bought a generic one from Amazon with flat sides. I thought that would be very nice not to have to clean all those little paddles! But the flat paddle didn't mix my cookie batter. I had unmixed clumps every time. I waited desperately for the sideswipe to come back in stock and snatched one! Oh, now I am HAPPY to clean off all those little fins that mix my dough so well. Thank you sideswipe for a super great beater! It's the better beater.
Wonderful product. The fins keep everything well mixed.
Without the SideSwipe beater, I never really liked my KitchenAid Mixer - always had to stop and scrape down the sides. This is the second beater I’ve purchased, because I wore out the first one after 12 years. But what a delight to use our mixer with the SideSwipe beater, I’ll never use the mixer without it again!
Thanks! We're so glad to hear good things from long-term SideSwipe users :)
This is a wonderful product. We use it in our bakery all the time. Admittedly, we are hard on it but it holds up. We order more when we need to and don't know of anything else this good.
Was a replacement and was perfect!!!
