I just used my SideSwipe for the 1st time today. It is not as heavy duty as the original beater but it does work very well. Don't over fill your mixing bowl or it will get knocked out of the bowl when you first turn it on.
This is our second side swipe! We purchased the first ten years ago and when that one got damaged we had to have a replacement. Great product, great customer service and fast delivery.
This beater world's better than the "factory" flex edge attachment. If you're on the fence go ahead and hop off. I wish I found these sooner.
SideSwipe for Bowl-Lift KitchenAid Mixers - 4.5-5 Quart
This is a replacement SideSwipe for one of the original SideSwipe's that I purchased many years ago when they were first introduced. A tab on the original broke off so I needed a replacement. I have been extremely happy with the SideSwipe.
