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!

The one thing that I really disliked with my bowl-lift Kitchenaid is that I had to unhook the beater and lower the bowl constantly in order to get a spatula in to get all of the ingredients off of the side of the bowl. I had looked at the BeaterBlade, but my mixer is a K5-a from the 70s and although the BeaterBlade claims to fit, it was too tight in the bowl and made the beater stick and slip as it tried to spin around the bowl. Kitchenaid makes their own spatula-type beater now, but not for the K5-a.

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.

Perfect for mixing so far. I have the weirdo sized Costco 6qt Kitchenaid that doesn't work with the official KA flex beater.
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.

I read all the reviews concerning this silicone finned beater and decided that the benefits touted in the positive reviews outweighed the negatives. I am thrilled with the functionality of this beater--it cuts mixing time down not only by eliminating frequent stops for scraping down the sides of the bowl, but also by incorporating ingredients faster than a regular paddle beater. I used to dread mixing frosting--now it's a thrill! I join the chorus of those who recommend highly.

Purchased this for my new KitchenAid Mixer hoping it would work with the COSTCO model 6qt flaired bowl. It works perfectly and did an excellent job of keeping the bowl sides and bottom mixed. I found no unmixed residue after mixing. This is a winner. I did not have to make any adjustments to the mixer to use the SideSwipe.

There are several bakers in the household and we have one of these and a New Metro Design Beater Blade. The side swipe is the one we always reach for. It seems to keep the bowl sides cleaner although it's a close race. We tossed the original beater from Kitchenaid.

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.

If you are looking for a mixer blade that will totally scrape the side of the bowl, this is not it. However, if you are looking for a superior blade for mixing doughs with nuts, raisins, etc. this is the perfect tool.

This works awesome for keeping things mixed well. I guess it is hard to clean like the other reviewers said but no harder to clean than the one that comes with it. I mean if you don't want to do any dishes, you should probably not be baking, right? The white part is plastic and that covers a metal base. You should make sure that you check that you are ordering the right size, this one works on the LIFT mixers. Mine is a "Professional 5". Probably the people complaining about it not fitting ordered the wrong size. I did that at first, too.
