- Plastic warped, affects fit- December 23, 2016
Purchased this for my 5qt artisan design mixer and sadly the plastic is slightly warped to the point the shield does not sit evenly on the bowl. The result is a shield that easily falls half into the bowl, making a bigger mess than without it. I am going to try to slowly heat it and see if I can get it to cool "flat", but honestly, who has the time to fix something that should have worked right out of the box? I think the packaging allowed the room for the warping to occur, which KitchenAid could fix by encasing this in a tight-fitting plastic molded insert as they do other accessory items. I would recommend his item, but with a warning of "test first".Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- Worst 'Shield' Ever - would give 0 stars if I can- August 22, 2021
Have been using my KitchenAid Tilt-Head Stand Mixer for over a year now and every single time I want to use the 'shield', I am reminded why I never want to again. Having owned multiple brands of stand mixers, this is truly the worst shield there is and should never be called a shield. It such a shame for such an amazing brand and high-quality stand mixer. It does NOT protect any sort of flour or liquid from flying out of the bowl. A dollar-store tea towel will do the trick a hundred times better than this extremely poorly designed shield. Mine came with the mixer but please save yourself some money and NEVER buy this on its own!!No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
- Poorly designed- January 9, 2019
I got this awhile back as a Christmas gift from my daughter. Love the mixer, but really dislike the pouring shield. It doesn't fit properly, moves around, and there is a big gap in part of it that allows stuff to fly out of that area, even if you are lucky enough to get the rest of it to stay in place long enough to do anything. VERY poor design. Kitchenaid really needs to come up with a better design. I finally gave up and put mine away. Easier to go without it........or to cut a hole in a paper plate and put it on the mixer, then put the beater on the mixer if you really need a shield - and it works better, too. This one is totally unsatisfactory.No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
