This Beater is REALLY a time saver!!!! It really does scrape the bottom and sides of the mixing bowl while it's beating!!! I ONLY need to stop the mixer to scrape the ingredients off the blade. I use this Beater Blade instead of the regular paddle most of the time.
A must for every KA stand mixer! Turn the machine on and go. No constant stopping and starting to scrape down the sides. No unmixed areas in bottom of mixer. Super results and super easy to clean. Just wish I had seen the silicone mixer blade sooner!
I have a Professional 5 5-quart stand mixer. Will this work with that model?

Best Answer:There are different beaters made for the lift models and the tilt ones. I have a 5 quart lift Professional KA and I own a beater blade. The package will tell you which mixer it will fit (lift or tilt) and the size 4qt, 5 qt,6 qt.Read the package carefully so you get the right size. I originally purchased the wrong blade for my KA. I did not pay attention to the quart size(bought a 4 quart lift instead of a 5 quart). I did not realize this until I could not install it on my KA!! It was too small and I had to exchange it for 5 quart

I do not know what the ""KA Classic"" Mixer is.This beater blade ONLY fits the TILT HEAD Model, 4 1/2 & 5 Quart Capacity.If you own a KA Model that has a handle to lift the bowl up and down, this bladeWILL NOT fit you machine.There are several different Beater Blade models available. You need to know the capacity of your mixing bowl and how you adjust the machine to get access to the beaters.Do you tilt the machine head back to expose the beaters or do you use a lever/handle to lift the mixing bowl up & down?I hope this helped you. I own the KA with the lever/handle and I bought a beater blade. This beater blade really is wonderful!! I do not ever have to scrape the mixer bowl while mixing, it automatically does it!! And the clean up is a breeze. I would NOT recommend the blade that has been advertised to mix in chips and nuts (without breaking them into pieces). I DID NOT like this style of blade!! It did not scrape the bowl well and was very time consuming to clean. It would not clean up im my KA Dishwasher unless I really scrubbed the rubber clean
