Product Description

One of the best features of a stand mixer is that you can add other ingredients while the mixing action is occuring. However, it can be a little tricky trying to get those eggs, or that sugar into the bowl, without getting in the way of a moving beater, or without ingredients sloshing outside the bowl. The answer to these difficulties is a pouring shield. The chute lets you add ingredients from a safe distance while the "collar" prevents splashes from wet ingredients and "puff" from dry ingredients.

Customer Reviews

Item wrong size even though I order the item recommended.
Robyn Burt
This IS the CORRECT Pouring Shield needed to fit the 5 Quart mixing Bowl for the Kitchen Aid Professional 5 Plus 5 Qt Stand Mixer with Lift Bowl.
Mee
This pouring shield does fit the bowl, however it does not snap in place, or otherwise fit securely.

Being a new KitchenAid stand mixer owner, I've been having an incredibly hard time finding out which of their accessories go with which item. Specifically, I own the KitchenAid KP26M1PSL Professional 600 Series 6-Quart Stand Mixer, Silver but I've been reading horror stories about KA accessories and find most of it to be true.

KitchenAid really does need to find some kind of naming convention to help consumers find the right accessory for their products. I know that they give you a nice booklet with a chart of which accessory matches which mixer in each KitchenAid box, but it doesn't help...

The KA pouring shield comes in 2 models (obviously since there are dozens of models floating out there). While I'm not sure if these 2 covers will fit all models, my research has led me to a list of what model stand mixers that these will work on. With that said, my research comes from KA Online Support Help...

KitchenAid's two models and their compatibilities are as follows; I've even included a direct link to them on Amazon. Pay attention to the model numbers!!

KN1PS KitchenAid KN1PS 1-Piece Pouring Shield for Accolade 400 Stand Mixers - Fits all KitchenAid tilt-head stand mixers as well as K5, KP50, KSMS and KG bowl-lift models which include: K45, K45SS, KSM75, KSM90, KSM95, KSM100, KSM103, KSM110, K4SS, K5(A), K5SS, KG25G7X, KG25H0X, KG25H3X, KP50PS, KSM450, KSM455, KSM5, KSM50HDP, KSM500.

Okay, I realize maybe I should compare the model number to the model number, but the standard KitchenAid mixer is the 4.5 quart and this item was not explanatory in terms of size. So it is partly my fault that I didn't MAKE SURE that this item was for my 4.5 quart standard KitchenAid Mixer, but I assumed because it didn't state otherwise, it was also for the standard size.

This shield is for a 6+ quart mixing bowel not the standard 4.5-5 quart bowel. This does not fit my mixer and as another person said, they are not interested in refunding anything for shipping. So it's more prudent of me to either buy another bowel or give this away as a gift; otherwise I spend the cost of the shield in shipping without the benefit of the shield.

Took a chance on this product since my mixer is the 550 from Costco and I wasn't sure which shield to purchase. This one is a perfect fit!

Since there has been some confusion as to which Pouring Shields fit which K/A Mixers I am adding my little bit of experience here in hopes of saving some other shopper from ordering the wrong one first, as I had done.

This IS the CORRECT Pouring Shield needed to fit the 5 Quart mixing Bowl for the Kitchen Aid Professional 5 Plus 5 Qt Stand Mixer with Lift Bowl.

Even Kitchen Aid does not list their most current Part Number for this Item in the "ATTACHMENT BOOKLET" that came with my new mixer a couple of weeks ago. But before ordering my SECOND Pouring Shield, I called K/A Customer Service and confirmed that indeed this is the right one.

The Pro 5 Plus Mixer has a wide 5 Qt Bowl. The Artisan Mixers have a taller more narrow Bowl that is about six tenths of an inch smaller than this Shield. This Shield DOES NOT fit Artisans.
Again this Part Number KN256PS IS the CORRECT Pouring SHIELD for the Professional 500 series Plus 5-Qt Mixer Stainless Steel Bowl.

The INCORRECT Item that I ordered originally was based on the INCORRECT Amazon Description for Shield # KPS2CL that states it fits ALL K/A 4 1/2 & 5 Qt Mixers. That shield is for the Taller and more narrow bowls. I know first-hand that this Shield does fit the Artisan Series, (I don't know what others) so I was able to give it to a relative who could use it- saving me the hassle of a return.

I am so happy with my mixer and very happy to have the proper fitting shield as well. I have not actually used the shield yet, but don't foresee any problems. I mainly wanted to share this info for the sake of other shoppers. Hope this helps..
Thank you!

I started my search for a Kitchenaid pouring shield by going to my owner's manual for a Kitchenaid model KG25H0XER 5-quart Professional HD stand mixer. On page 25 of the manual, it states the correct model pouring shield for this mixer is the "KN2PS." I went online to the Kitchenaid Store and searched for a "KN2PS" and the search returned "0 products with this description." I then found Kitchenaid has 2 - and only 2 - pouring shields available at their site: The KN1PS and the KN256PS.
Thinking the "KN2" (in KN256PS) must be the nomenclature I was looking for and reading on the Amazon website that the "KN256PS" fit 4.5 and 5 quart bowls for stand mixers, I purchased the "KN256PS" pouring shield.
Upon receiving the KN256PS, I looked on page 3 of the instruction manual I received with the pouring shield and it states, "The bottom rim of the shield should fit inside the bowl, and the tabs should be on the outside of the bowl." I tried, and the shield does not fit. The bottom rim of the shield is about 1/4 inch larger than the rim of the bowl, and the tabs stick out farther than that. I tried to squeeze the pouring shield so that it would fit the bowl, but after only a few seconds, the shield popped off.
Reading the outside of the box the pouring shield came in, I found that Kitchenaid claims the shield fits only KB, KD, KP, KT, and KV models. (As I state above, the model of my mixer is a KG.)
Since the Kitchenaid website lists only 2 pouring shield models, and I know the KN1PS will not fit, I can only assume at this point that Kitchenaid does not make a pouring shield to fit my model of mixer. If that is true, shame on Kitchenaid.
