    Customer Questions

      Questions on KitchenAid Flex Edge Beater (for 4.5 and 5 Quart Tilt Head Mixers):

      • Q:  Will this fit the Artisan model?
      • A:  The Artisan Model is a 5 quart tilt head mixer. The KFE5T will fit the Kitchen Aid Artisan Stand Mixer.
      • Q:  I have a Ultra Power 300 kitchen aide mixer would this beater fit my mixer.
      • A:  Yes, this flex edge beater will fit your mixer. I called Kitchenaid to verify.
      • Q:  Will this fit an Kitchendaid Accolade 400 5 qt mixer?

      • A:  I called Kitchenaid to verify if this will fit your mixer, and they said that it will not fit it. I am sorry. They do not make a Flex Edge for your model at the moment.
      • Q:  Will this fit ksm90wh mixer
      • A:  Yes, it will.
      • Q:  Will this fit the 5qt lift stand pro series model #KSM50P? Or only the tilt head models?
      • A:  This will only fit the tilt-head models. Sorry!
      • Q:  Will this fit the K555 model?
      • A:  I think you meant the K5SS, and no, this will not fit that model. Kitchenaid is not currently making a flex edge for this model as of 1/30/2013.
      • Q:  What material is the flex edge beater made from--metal or plastic?
      • A:  It is aluminum with nylon coating.
      • Q:  Will this fit the Pro500 Kitchen Aid Mixer?
      • A:  No, this will not, as the Pro 500 is a bowl lift style, and the KFE5T only fits the tilt-head 4.5 and 5 quart mixers. They do not currently make a flex edge beater for your mixer.
      • Q:  Will this beater fit my K5SSWH mixer? If not, does Kitchen Aid back up the Pourfect flex beater for 5 quart lift bowl?

        Thanks for listening and have a great day, Norm
      • A:  No, this will not fit the K5SSWH mixer. The Pourfect listed at http://www.everythingkitchens.com/pourfect-scrape-a-bowl-5-quart-bowl-lift.html does technically void the warranty from Kitchenaid, so I'd not recommend using the Pourfect unless you are already out of your warranty period.
      • Q:  Would this fit the kitchen aid classic?
      • A:  Yes, the Kitchen Aid Flex Edge Beater KFE5T will fit the Kitchen Aid Classic Mixer Model K45SS.
      • Q:  I am going to purchase the KA 5qt mixer. It comes with the wire beater. Should I purchase the flex beater as well?
      • A:  Kitchen Aid mixers normally come with the flat beater, wire whip and dough hook. The flex edge beater is not required. However, some customers find it preferable because it does eliminate the need to scrape the sides of the bowl while mixing.
      • Q:  I have a Professional 5 Plus, will the flex edge beater fit this model?
      • A:  No, the product that will fit your mixer is KA-5L, KA-5LR, and KA-5LRLB. Thank you.

      • Q:   Will it work with model KSM90 OB ?
      • A:  Yes, this Flex Edge Beater will work with the KitchenAid KSM90 Series
      • Q:  When I purchase a Kitchenaid stand mixer from this site can I replace the beater that accompanies it with the flex edge beater and pay the difference?
      • A:  Hello,

        Thank you so much for your interest in the KitchenAid Flex Edge Beater (for 4.5 and 5 Quart Tilt Head Mixers).

        KitchenAid Flex Edge Beater (for 4.5 and 5 Quart Tilt Head Mixers) would need to be added as an additional item to the KitchenAid stand mixer of your choice. At this time none of the mixers in our inventory come with that instead of the flat beater.

    Great Beater! Review by

    This beater does a great job! The shipping was quick and it was a great deal! (Posted on 1/23/19)


    Love my Flex Edge Beater Review by

    Couldn't wait to try this after ordering it and it did not disappoint! Works fantastic and really does a wonderful job of scraping the bowl all the way around. (Posted on 11/9/18)


    KitchenAid Flex-Edge Beater Does the Job Review by

    Having used the standard KA flat beater for 50 years with my old KA, I'm really pleased with the flex-edge that I bought with my new Artisan model. It does an excellent job of scraping the bowl & incorporating ingredients. Just a bit of extra scraping at the top of the bowl is all that's been needed so far. (Posted on 11/21/17)


    Awesome Kitchen Helper Review by

    I bought this tilt-head flex edge beater for my Aunt who owns am at home bkery. She needed something to get the edges of the bowl clean and this defiantly did the trick. It's easy to attach and gets all of the batter mixed perfectly! I would highly recommend this product for any baker.

    Great addition to your stand Mixer Review by

    Got this to go with my new stand mixer as they don't make a compatible one for my really old KA mixer. You have to scrape sides a little...but only at end. Saves lots of time and aggravation! (Posted on 4/10/17)


    Flex Edge Beater Concerns Review by

    I purchased this beater about four years ago as a replacement for my original standard beater, when the paint on the original started to crack and peel at the connection point. Recently, the scraper appears to be leaking an oily substance. When I first noticed the problem, I hadn't used my mixer in about three months. The beater was siting in the bowl. There was what appeared to be oil all over the scraper, and a puddle of it in the bottom of the bowl. I thought someone hadn't washed it properly, so I washed it and then used it. I made sure that I washed it, myself, this time to be sure it was done properly. I checked it a week later and found the oily substance on it again. This time I resorted to using my old beater. Thank goodness I kept it as a back-up! I don't know what that oily substance is, but I hope I didn't poison my family by using the beater. I will not buy another scraper style beater. I would also note that I had the same issue another reviewer noted. The scraper had a tendency to flip ingredients out of the bowl, but the splatter shield helped. I also found that the scraper never actually scraped the sides of the bowl. I have a 5 qt model. Perhaps it works better on the 4.5 qt model.

    Love it! Review by

    I love using the flex edge beater! It evenly incorporates all of the ingredients without the need to stop the mixer and scrape the bowl. What a great tool!

    Use with the splatter guard. Review by

    I bought the tilt-head flex beater thinking I wouldn't have to stop so often to scrape the edges of the bowl. Which it does. But some of the dry ingredients get thrown out of the bowl when mixing. Also, the liquids you pour in will also be thrown out. Much more than with the regular beater. I stopped the mixer & stirred the ingredients together. This helped a great deal. I do have the plastic splatter guard for the top of the bowl. Which I will use next time. The guard should cut down on splatter.

    Good accessory but enamal chipped Review by

    A Must Have Accessory Review by

    I could not do without my flex edge beater - definitely a must have for saving time and effort. Helps mix batters thoroughly as it scrapes the edge of the bowl. Easy clean up, too.

    Awesome! Review by

    If you like making cakes this is definitely a must. You can whip up a cake and absolutely no time. You could also use it for cookies but I don't mind using the original flat beater for making cookies. This works great for frosting as well. And whether you look inside your metal bowl or outside of your glass bowl you can definitely see it scraping.

    Paint on bottom of beater chipped off the 3rd time I used it Review by

    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 :(

    Paint chipping, but works great Review by

    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.

    Great Gifts comes from Kitchenaid Review by

    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.

    Very nice product Review by

    I would recommend this product. It really helps save time. instead of scraping the bowl every minute just use this beater to catch all the sides. (Posted on 2/16/16)


    Good Product but... Review by

    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.

    great design, cool idea!! Review by

    I received the flex edge beater with my tilt-head stand mixer as a gift and I love it!! It does exactly what it is designed to do. It scrapes every edge of the bowl so you don't have to.

    Better than the regular one! Review by

    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!!!

    Love It Review by

    I bought this so I don't have to keep scraping down the bowl , and I love it I don't if it's just me or what but I made a Whipping Cream Pound Cake and the batter had a different texture to it , it seemed lighter and a little fluffier than usual. Now I have to get second one for my other kitchen aid now.

    source kitchenaid.com (Posted on 1/3/15)


    Love this! Review by

    I bought this along with my mixer. Used it and the basic beater that comes with, and this is my favorite by far! I don't understand the comments about flinging product out. Mine worked wonderfully, eliminated the need to stop and scrape the sides of bowl.

    source kitchenaid.com (Posted on 12/26/14)


    super convenient Review by

    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. :(

    source kitchenaid.com (Posted on 12/6/14)


    Poor design, nice idea. Review by

    What a mess this thing makes, took longer to clean up the area than it did to make the cake. The beater does scrape the side of the bowl but then it flings whatever it has scraped off everywhere. It does this at the stir setting, probably if you used the 10 setting there would be nothing left in the bowl. Big disappointment, would return it if I still had the paperwork. So if you do purchase this item keep your paperwork!

    Great product Review by

    Very Good Beater Review by

    This Kitchenaid flex edge beater is amazing. I used it yesterday for making a no-bake cheesecake filling that has cream cheese in it. I normally find that the cream cheese sticks to the edge of the bowl and I have to get a spatula and scrape it back in a few times. With the flex edge beater, I didn't have to do any such thing! The mixer bowl didn't have a speck of cream cheese sticking to the side. This flex edge beater works by having a little rubber spatula on the edge of it that scrapes the bowl as it goes around. It is amazing. (Posted on 9/23/13)


    Great if you want to repaint your kitchen with cake batter Review by

    I bought one of these for my 7 qt mixer, one for my mom's 4.5 qt mixer, and one for my best friend's 5 qt. ALL of them have the same defect, they splash all of your ingredients out all over the kitchen. Great idea, poorly implemented.
