I bought two of these beaters, one for me and one for my granddaughter that loves to cook. Anything kitchen-aid is a little expensive but well worth it. A MUST HAVE !!!
I saw these and knew it would be an excellent addition for my mixer! Works well and I appreciate the efficiency of it. It was shipped fast and packaged well.
The model number of this coated paddle/ beater is KFE5T, and I got mine on sale. This paddle has one rubber edge, which really scrapes the inside of the bowl very well and keeps the food down in it while doing so. Using this beater causes a little shaking motion, however, to the Artisan when the speed is turned up on drier foods. This extra accessory is a necessary item to use in most instances, though, because the regular coated paddle/ beater that comes with the Artisan misses mixing some batter parts that touch the bowl, and I have to stop mixing in order to scrape down these areas into the batter. Now, I use the Flex Edge Coated Beater all of the time, so I’m glad that I bought it.
Kitchenaid does a bad job of making it clear which attachments fit which mixers. It's not Overstock's fault. There are just so many differences among mixers. I bought this for a friend. I went by the info she gave me and thought I was ordering the right one. It was wrong and got stuck on her mixer. Kitchenaid replaced it no problem but then even they sent another style that was also wrong! Finally, on the third try she got the right part. Hence the 3 stars.
