I have one of the wonderful old Hobart KA mixers, some 30 years old and still going strong. I was intrigued by the new Beaterblade and ordered one to try it out. There's several different models made for various KA, Cuisinart, DeLonghi, and Viking stand mixers. It arrived, and I just tried it today with some banana bread.

All I can say is, I'm so sorry I didn't order this earlier! A week ago I was making cookies for a cookie swap, and this attachment would have made some of the recipes MUCH easier if I'd had it then. It really does work, scraping the sides of the bowl perfectly and making it even faster to cream the butter and sugar together.

Note that it is all plastic - even the attachment part. Don't know how long it will last, but I just wish this had been invented 30 years ago when I was really doing a lot of baking. Definitely worth the money, if you do a lot of cake/cookie baking.

Here's the Beaterblade for stand mixers at Amazon.com:

And now there are two mixer blades on the market. The newest is the SideSwipe Spatula Mixer Blade, with a different design (see link below). Cook's Illustrated actually liked this one better than the Beaterblade that I purchased, but I didn't see the review in the Jan-Feb 2009 issue until afterwards. I'm satisfied with the one I got, though. The Sideswipe looks like it's more durable, but there's a lot of crevices you'd have to scrape clean.

Actually, I don't believe either the Beaterblade or the Sideswipe are KA products - they are from after-market vendors. If they have them, though, that would be great for you!

Ok...thanks... I never gave that a thought! But I bet you're right! I looked again and saw the TM on it. I still want one...or two!!

Man!!!! WHERE has that been all this time?? I 'gotta' have one, or maybe both, LOL. That would take care of the one thing I really hate about my KA stand mixer.

On the subject of KA mixer accessories, have you seen these?

http://www.amazon.com/ClassicMix-Double-Decal-Flame-Kit/dp/B000R48Y6Q/ref=sr_1_35?ie=UTF8&s=home-garden&qid=1229968192&sr=1-35

Something for the cook that has everything perhaps ;-)

Too funny... sometimes I think my plain jane mixer should be shooting flames when I run it on high for 10 minutes for a recipe!

ROFL

I remember seeing Alton Brown with an orange KA with flames and thinking it must have been a custom job. Who knew you could buy the decals. I LOVE the fighter plane!
