I wanted an extra bowl for my mixer and while I'm perfectly happy with the stainless steel bowl that came with the mixer the glass bowl seemed to make sense. I was also informed after the fact that some recipes actually require a non stainless steel bowl so I'm additionally happy I didn't just get a second stainless bowl.
I thought the idea of a clear bowl on a KitchenAid mixer was a good idea. Not a necessity, just a good idea. Having used KitchenAid stand mixers for thirty two years and having always had extra bowls, I figured I would get this. It's fine, but I think it is pricey. I splurged. It is quite heavy compared to the metal bowls so full of dough it is very heavy. If you have weak arms this might not be the best idea for you. Of course, instead of mixing heavy doughs in it (use your metal bowl) you could just use it for lighter things - cream, etc. I'm still glad I bought it!
Bought this item for my sister and once it arrived in the mail. We did not tell her it was her gift so she thought it was something she had purchased and once she open the box she came screaming into the kitchen Thank You Thank You. Mailed Surprised
