Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Domestic Engineer Paint on bottom of beater chipped off the 3rd time I used it
I was excited to buy this beater on vacation sometime ago. We were then gone for 6 months and just had opportunity to use it now for the 3rd time. It seems to do a good job, but certainly need to use my shield when adding flour, etc. Today I noticed something white sticking out of one of my baked cookies. It didn't look like a possible egg shell and with further searching found out small pieces of the white paint had chipped off the bottom of the beater. That made me :(

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Jenn Paint chipping, but works great
The item works well and am otherwise happy with it. It does scrape the sides well, but does not scrape the center on the bottom of the bowl. However, the white coating is chipping off at the base, where it connects to the Kitchenaid. This worries me bc I obviously do not want paint chipping off into the food I am preparing.

Gotten this for an extra beater. For me, I noticed the texture of my batter was smoother than the beater using the same ingredients. Either way, it was a welcome addition to my kitchen.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by John McInarnay Good Product but...
It has a good design and scrapes the side of the bowl really well. I just wish it got the bottom of the bowl better. I'm constantly having to scrap up flour and butter from the bottom to get it to mix in.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by nebraskafarmwife Great addition to my kitchen!
I have had (and loved) my Kitchen Aid mixer since 1977. We live on a farm and I do a lot of baking. Bought the flex edge beater last month and love it. Wish someone would have thought of it sooner.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ProudMomof4 Better than the regular one!
My Hubby gifted me a Artisan Stand Mixer for my birthday/Christmas! The flex edge beater along with some other items were included as a bonus items. I love my mixer and I love the flex edge because it makes baking our weekly cookies a breeze and less messy! It scales the bowl and it's quicker to use this instead of the regular paddle because no "stopping and scrapping" is involved! Best invention ever!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ellekat super convenient
Not having to scrape the bowl anymore is just so convenient. people complaining about this "making a mess" are probably cranking up the speed right from the start. I bake 4-5 times a week consistently (cookies, cakes, tarts, bread, etc), and I have never had any issues like the ones that they described. You should always start the mixer on the lowest setting and when the dry ingredients are mixed a bit (and you want to slowly add them in, not plop all the dry ingredients at once, for even mixing), then you can crank it up to 2. For cakes, you shouldn't be using higher speed setting, because you don't want to form too much gluten by working the batter too much. The higher setting is meant for bread kneading. The standing mixer also come with a splatter guard, just in case, but I never use that. The only thing I don't like about it? I don't know if it's dishwasher safe, and I hate handwashing it. :(
