Rated 5 out of 5 by sparklesforme05 A must, must, must have!!!
I bought a kitchenaide mixer and used it for the first time on Thanksgiving. I had no idea how powerful this machine was and had not thought to but this pouring shield. When I started to mix the mashed potatoes (on low speed), the potatoes started flying all over the place!! That is when my daughter told me I had to buy this pouring shield so things stay neatly in the mixing bowl. I just used the pouring shield to mix up a crème cheese mixture and I am absolutely thrilled to see that it truly works to keep the ingredients in the mixing bowl!!! Yeah!!! No more messes!!! A must have piece for anyone who owns or is going to purchase a kitchenaide mixer!! So happy I bought this!!!

I bought my Kitchen Aid tilt head mixer a year ago. This shield came with the mixer as part of the deal. Every time I use my stainless steel bowl, I have to wrap my arm around the bowl to help prevent flour from flying out on the counter. The flour still comes out no matter how hard I try. Since the shield came as part of the deal, I know it is with the right bowl. Great idea, but needs tweaking. Having been raised in the south, I have to admit that the thought of duct tape came to mind. lol

This is most likely my fault....I didn't realize that there were different pouring shields for different bowls. By the time I figured it out, it was too late to return it. My advise....make sure you know which shield goes with which bowl. I have a mess on my hands trying to hold this in place and add flour!!
Rated 3 out of 5 by classic48 Somewhat Fragile
Even using this cover, the mixer will still "kick back" flour onto the floor. Also, I made huge mistake and put in the dishwasher, it warped a little and will not set flat around the bowl. If you purchase, I suggest hand wash only. Apparently plastic is too fragile for the heat of a dishwasher even if put on the top rack. Bad experience.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Nbechtl50 1st Kitchen Aid product I'm not thrilled about
I was excited to get this. With an older mixer I had the 2-piece pouring shield and it worked really well. This new one.....not so great. First thing that I noticed is that it doesn't fit on the 5-qt glass bowl that came with my mixer. Product details said it fit the 5-qt bowl but didn't specify that it didn't fit the glass bowl. I also have a 5-qt stainless steel bowl and it does fit on that but it falls off too easily. The outside "extensions" on the thing aren't long enough to keep the shield from falling off the bowl. I am pretty sure that if they were longer it would eliminate the problem. I'm not happy with this product at all but won't send it back because for the price it's not worth the hassle. I hope that Kitchen Aid reviews the reviews and comes up with a solution for this pouring shield. There are other reviews stating the same issue with this product so it is a common problem. Otherwise, all other Kitchen Aid products that I have purchased in the past are wonderful! They just had a weak moment when they designed this pouring shield.

I am very disappointed because I was much looking forward to using this product. Unfortunately, it did not fit. Have to return it and search for another one.

Very disappointed. Did not stop the splashes from coming out of the bowl where the shield does not cover. Not worth the price. Expected better from kitchenaid.
Rated 5 out of 5 by madbabie Great!
Works great with my older model Kitchen Aid mixer. No more fluffing of the sugar when if I inadvertantly turn the power too high!
