I was thrilled to find a beater to reach all the way to the bottom of the the KitchenAid mixer bowl (unlike the one KitchenAid includes). This beater does that and scrapes the sides! Finally, no more hand stirring after I remove the bowl from the mixer to insure that all the "chunks" in the bottom don't wreak havoc on my recipes. As mentioned by another reviewer, when adding dry ingedients (flour, powdered sugar) the mixer will cause a small explosion of the ingredient until it is combined. I resolved this by using my dry ingredient shield and adding in smaller quantities with each addition. I love that I can just throw the beater in the dishwasher and now am trying to decide if I should order a second so one can wash while I am making the next batch.
