Close but no cigar,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: SideSwipe for KitchenAid Wide Bowl-Lift Mixers: 5-Plus, 5.5- and 6-Qt Standard, in Blue (Kitchen)
This is a big improvement over the beater attachment delivered with my Kitchenaid 6-qt pro mixer.
In fact the mixer is useless to me without the SideSwipe.
1) Cleaning is a chore. It's difficult to remove all the batter from the fins.
2) Plastic beater is quite fagile. I found out the hard way.

I just do a general go-over with a spatula, just to get the brunt of the surface batter off, then I soak it in warm, soapy water for about 15-20 minutes, then go over it with the sprayer attachment at high pressure. This will take off all the visible batter very quickly and easily. Finally, I use the dish brush with soapy water to clean off any oily/greasy residue. Works like a charm every time!
The trick is to not get too attached to getting every last bit of batter off when you remove the paddle. I used to want to get every little bit out of all the nooks and crannies with a slim spatula. That's the time-consuming part. So I gave up on the obsessive need to "not waste", reached for a broad spatula instead and, in doing so, made my cleanup (and life) a whole lot easier. :)
