I prefer using my side swipe over the standard Kitchen Aid beaters. The side swipe makes less mess and mixes better and in less time.
The only slight downside is that it’s harder to scrape the mix off the side swipe due to the fins, but that’s a minor issue. In any case, it gives you more mix to lick from the beater! Baker’s perks…
The stem on my new sidewipe blade is an inch shorter than my old blade and the blade doesn't reach the bottom of my bowl. There is no adjustment on my kitchen aid, 37 years old. MY old blade has blue fins, Do you still carry my old blade? This is the fifth one I have ordered over the years. I have already lost 2 fins on my old blade and really need a new one!!! Thank you for your help.
i have both a tilt head and bowl lift Kitchen Aid. For the longest time i only had a sideswipe for my bowl lift mixer. When i run both mixers at the same time the mixer with the SideSwipe CLEARLY mixes better than a regular silicon attachment i have. EVERY. Single. Time. This is a must purchase for your KitchenAid mixer. I will continue to purchase and recommend!
The side-swipe does a great job keeping the sides and bottom clean when I start my cookie dough. I normally make a double batch and halfway through, it is no longer able to scrape the sides and bottom well. On top of that, it throws flour everywhere!!! It doesn’t matter how slow or how little flour I put in. I even tried to pulse my mixer and I wind up with a big mess. I will try a single batch next but I was hoping this product would save me time, not double it.
I have not received sideswipe yet is this because I am in Australia ?
