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.
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 make more than 100 dozen cookies a year, so after three years of using the Beater Blade, going back to the original equipment KitchenAid beater was not an option because I had been spoiled by the Beater Blade. I am sold on the concept that these blades use; their mixing capabilities are superior to those of the original blade, and they do indeed save you from having to stop the mixer regularly to scrape down the bowl.
When I received the SideSwipe, the packaging (clamshell) was so tight and hard to open that I cut myself on the plastic in the process of opening it. A minor complaint, but the packaging could be improved upon. The price of the SideSwipe is also higher than the Beater Blade.
I have used the SideSwipe multiple times now, and have found it similar in function to the Beater Blade; but there are a couple of differences between the two that you will want to know about if you are considering replacing your Beater Blade with a SideSwipe:
1) The silicone fins tend to hold heavy batters in them, which makes for no small amount of work to get the dough out of them before cleaning. In the dishwasher, traces of batter were left on the fins - I never had this issue with the Beater Blade.Read more ›
