So glad KitchenAid now offers a blade that scrapes down the sides for you as it mixes. This saves time, particularly on the professional models where you may need to lower the bowl in order to scrape down the sides. This avoids the temptation to scrape while the mixer is working (DO NOT DO THIS), and avoids the warranty issue that similar non-KitchenAid models suffered. Bottom line: If you ever use your mixing attachment, you need this. It's the best money you'll ever spend.
Great gift as well for anyone who's owned a KitchenAid for many years and may not know that this is even an option
I have an old Kitchen Aid upright mixer and am not sure of the size. Is it possible to obtain exact measurement of the beater?

Best Answer:You'll probably fare better by finding out the size of your KitchenAid's bowl. If it is a professional model where the bowl raises and lowers, it is probably a 6-quart, and this is the right size for you. If you don't recall the size of your bowl, grab the serial # (generally on the underside of the machine) and call KitchenAid and they should be able to tell you.More recently, KitchenAid added a 7-quart model, but if you didn't buy your mixer in the last couple years, and the bowl lowers/raises, it's most likely a 6-quart, and this is the perfect size
You're absolutely right that they look similar regardless of size, but in order to scrape the sides, KitchenAid matches the size of the scraper to the size of the bowl. So if you have a 5 quart mixer, you need the blade that's rated for 5 quarts. Thankfully, Sur la Table sells it. Check out SKU 819508, which is actually a little cheaper at $29.95
