I had seen a favorable video review of the Sideswipe and thought I might as well try it out. It fits the bowl nicely so it looked promising, even without ingredients. The first recipe I tried it with was a rather thick muffin batter and it worked very well. If you've seen the BeaterBlade in action you've probably seen that it keeps the sides of the bowl clean and pushes the ingredients to the center so that there's absolutely no bowl scraping necessary. The Sideswipe is a bit different in that the fins on the beater pull ingredients off of the bowl and incorporate them well, but it doesn't keep the side completely clean. To me this is not a problem because I still didn't have to scrape the bowl until I was done mixing and ready to pour the batter into muffin trays. It incorporated everything in about 5 minutes total, and normally I'd have to scrape the bowl 3 or 4 times to get everything worked in, stopping the mixer and unhooking the beater and lowering the bowl each time.
One thing I especially like about the Sideswipe is that the fins let things like chocolate chips in the batter flow through the beater instead of forcing them underneath the spatula section.Read more ›
The stiffest dough I've run through it is chocolate chip cookie with lots of nuts - no problems at all. Saves a LOT of time vs. having to stop and scrape the bowl every few minutes. The little fingers thoroughly get the whole bowl and allow mix ins like nuts and chips to pass. You can see in the picture how the blades are alternate from side to side. This makes it very efficient. A batch of cookie dough mixes up ready to bake in just a couple minutes.
Somewhat of a pain to clean all the crevices thoroughly but a good soaking usually takes care of it.
It's easier to clean the Sideswipe than the New Metro because you don't have a long seam to clean out where the wiper meets the metal beater. With the Sideswipe, the wiper encases the beater (or the outer loop anyway).
caveats: You have to scrape off all the sides of the sideswipe tabs when you're done, which is slightly more burdensome than wiping off a plain beater. You have to be careful not to cut the soft material when scraping it clean after use.
Bonuses: besides wiping the bowl sides as it works, the Sideswipe doesn't have the chipping problem of the original beater or the flexbeater from Kitchenaid or the Metro. This is because the "rubber" swiper fully encases the part of the edges of the beater.
So far, the Sideswipe has lasted longer than the original Kitchenaid beaters.

Works well, but feels really light-weight. I'm hoping it holds up. I thought it cleaned up pretty well: a little soak in soapy water and a quick pass with a scrubby did the job.Published 3 months ago by Miss Mann
