Product Description

SideSwipe revolutionizes mixing and virtually eliminates the need to stop your mixer and scrape the bowl to get all your ingredients mixed in. The ORIGINAL spatula mixer blade delivers better results because of its unique alternating silicone fins. The ultra-flexible fins' bi-directional scraping provides a more thoroughly-combined, fluffier end result while maintaining a safe wattage draw. And it mixes your recipes faster, too! SideSwipe is perfect for mixing most everything you use your stand mixer for - cakes, frosting, cookies with chips and nuts, mashed potatoes, creamed butter and much more! Don't be fooled by recent competition that doesn't mix as well or get ingredients from the bottom of the bowl!

Customer Reviews

It fit perfectly and is well made.
IslandSandy
I love my KitchenAid mixer but have always thought it needed a piece that would scrape the bowl sides as it mixes and this is perfect.
Malone
It's tough, works as advertised, and is easy to clean in the dishwasher.

Although I think this is rather high in price, it does what it is supposed to do and I believe it is worth the money. I am purchasing another one for my daughter. The one complaint we have about the Kitchen Aid mixer is stopping to scrap down the bowl. With the bowl-lift this isn't very easy or quick to do because the beater is in the way. The SideSwipe makes the scrapping of the bowl unnecessary. It works great!

I'd initially learned about this item while visiting my mom in Florida. We had stumbled upon a little kitchen supply shop in town and they were carrying them; alas, they were out of the size I needed...thank goodness I found them on Amazon.com!

My assessment: I just finished making my "infamous" New Year's Eve clam dip and utilized the "Sideswipe" for the first time since I received it a few days ago. I can attest that this accessory does exactly what it's intended to do; it scrapes (gently!) the sides of the bowl so effectively, there's truly no need for you to do so, which will save you both time and energy! It offers easy clean up as well, making it an ideal Kitchenaid cook's companion.

I highly recommend this product; just be sure to measure your existing beater blade (height and width), so you are sure to order the right size for your specific Kitchenaid mixer.

Happy Cooking!

i had all but stopped using my kitchen aid for anything but icings and whipped creams. i did not like having to stop drop and scrape down doughs and batters. i started using my handheld for cookies and cakes. the side swipe does a good job mixing the dough and scraping down the sides. its less messy and reduces the amount of time needed.

This functions well, but I bought both this and the Metro and really like the Metro better for two reasons. First, the Metro seems to clean the side of the bowl better (not much difference, but enough that it is noticeable) and Second, the Metro is easier to clean off excess batter. The tabs on the sides of the SideSwipe are a great place for lots of dough to cling. I need to use a small spatula or spoon to get the batter stuck between the tabs. Maybe not a big deal to most, but read on for an explanation

I need to offer an explanation in that I have limited use of my fingers due to nerve damage and was looking for something that would eliminate the less than perfect design of the KA metal blade. The need to grab another spoon to clean out from between the tabs can sometimes be difficult.

When making cookies that call for bits (chips, raisins, etc.) the Metro blade okay. However, when mixing large amounts of bits and chunks, this SideSwipe is actually better than the Metro because the bits seem to have an escape through the tabs, but most everything, I prefer the Metro.

I use both, but if I had to buy just one it would be the Metro.

I have retired the original aluminum blade (pain to clean by hand anyway) and rely on these aftermarket pieces.

I just tried out this beater today on a 16th anniversary bundt pan recipe from Nordicware. I absolutely did not have to scrape the beater at all except that the generous cake proportions resulted in a bit of batter ingrediants a bit above the silicone fans, and a bit of unicorporated ingredients near the top of the beater - not much. I think this is inevitable. I would give this a 5 star rating except for one small thing. With the protruding fins and the circular center, I found it more troublesome to scrap off the beater of excess batter when filling the cake pan. I could not use my spatula. I ended up using my finger (I did wash first :-)). I think the exra effort was worth it compared to the great job it did on scraping the majority of the bowl. I have seen there is another brand of blade where the silicone is continuous, and I have also seen concern from a baker that the silicone wings would put extra stress on the mixer. That is why I chose this blade with fins over the other.

I used the sideswipe primarily to make cookie dough. I didn't have to scrape down the mixing bowl when I used it, but it didn't hold up well and when I tried to contact customer service they never followed up.

Even though I followed directions to adjust the mixer height, the rubber mixing fins began to tear away from the side swipe. The material just doesn't hold up well.

And forget about customer service. There is none. They obviously don't really care about their customers after they get your money.

I contacted them several times through their customer service email. Every time the auto reply said "it may take extra time to get a response. Please allow two business days to hear back from us."

NINE days later I got a response from a person, asking for more information so they could make it right. I replied immediately and almost 3 weeks later (4 weeks total) there has been no other contact from them despite several follow up emails from me.

A big FAIL here for both the product and their customer service. Too bad. A little customer service could have kept my business and a positive opinion of this company. Their lack of action made it clear that they don't really care.

Although I used the version for the tilt head KitcheAid mixer, I suspect that the material and customer service issues would be the same.
