Beater Blade, reviewed

Beater Blade in package

One of the biggest problems with a stand mixer is that the mixer blade does not reach all the way down to the bottom of the bowl, so you have to get out a spatula and mix your batter by hand. It’s only an annoyance because the beauty of a stand mixer is that it should be hands-free. Over the past several months, a number of companies have come out with  mixer attachments that offer a solution to this problem, and Beater Blade is one of them.

Beater Blade looks like the regular paddle attachment for a mixer, but it has a flexible “wing” that reaches out from the paddle to the bottom of the bowl, so it scrapes the bowl with a soft blade that mixes efficiently without damaging your mixer. The company makes Beater Blades to fit all different styles and brands of electric mixers, including KitchenAid, Viking and DeLonghi, and all the Blades are dishwasher safe.

I used my Beater Blade to whip up some egg whites and to make a batch of cupcakes. It performed very well at both tasks, scraping in every last bit of flour for my cupcake batter – without over-mixing and making the cupcakes tough – and whipping the egg whites up so that they were fluffy and left no unwhipped pool of egg white around the dimple at the bottom of my KitchenAid bowl.  I was a bit skeptical before I tried it, but the Blade delivered all that it promised and is a nice accessory to have in the kitchen if you want to make better use of your stand mixer.

  1. I agree! I was skeptical too and hoped I wouldn’t be wasting my money. I bought one of these for myself and my sister in law in December, and we both love them. I now have gifts for all of the bakers in my family for the whole upcoming year!

  2. I’ve been meaning to pick one of these up. I mean the purpose/logic seems pretty strong. Thanks for the review.

  3. My KitchenAid has a screw to adjust the beater blade so it reaches the bottom. :)

  4. I’d love to try this blade… it sounds good :)

  5. I have one of these and I love it! I use it all the time.

  6. Thanks for this review, I am intrigued by this as well.

    Can I ask if you, or anyone who owns this, will use it instead of your paddle from now on, or are there applications where you don’t think you’d use it?

  7. Steph – Good question! I hadn’t thought about it, but I’m sure that it is designed to replace the regular paddle attachment. As for me, I’ll probably use whichever is clean and resort to using a spatula to scrape down the sides if I’m using a regular paddle

  8. Just a quick cautionary bit of advice, double check with the company before making any purchases!! I work at Williams Sonoma and discovered that some of the blades which are not put out by KitchenAid actually cause damage to the machine. Unfortunately, as soon as you attach a non-KitchenAid made attachment, the company warranty is voided. It’s not to say all products will do this and I myself have never tried (sadly as a poor college student, I can only admire these mixers from afar) but just keep this in mind when you purchase other attachments.

  9. I’ve always wondered about this product so thanks for the review!

  10. I love my beater blade! I usually use it for mixing baked goods…not needed for things like mashed potatotes…

  11. How does this compare to the SideSwipe that you reviewed about a year ago?

  12. Did you have to adjust the height of the mixer head at all, so it wouldn’t bump the bottom of the bowl too much? Or did it fit perfectly. I suppose all mixers will be different.

  13. bettyagnes – The side of the mixer is flexible, so it is supposed to scrape the bottom of the bowl. The company sells different models for different sizes and brands of mixer

  14. Laura – I like this one a bit better because I like the look of it, and it’s a bit easier to find in stores. In terms of performance, they both work well and function in much the same way

  15. Oh! Thanks for the review, I’ve been wondering if it’s worth the money!

  16. I bought a Beater Blade after hearing about it on the blog on the King Arthur Flour web site. They caution to only use it for wet doughs, not for heavy things like bread dough. They actually broke a Beater Blade trying to beat blocks of cold cream cheese. Soften your cream cheese/butter first for the best results.

    As for KA voiding their warranty — piffle. How would they know you used another blade?

  22. And you at the last moment have to a consensus, where you get a drift of what unqualifiedly ought to be done, and then they give it to me and then I unholster it. I without fail draw up it in the sentiment, the philosophical sense.

  23. And you finally win to a consensus, where you turn someone on a judgement of what in effect ought to be done, and then they provide it to me and then I use it. I without fail delineate it in the brains, the philosophical sense.

  24. And you at the end of the day be paid to a consensus, where you manoeuvre a judgement of what really ought to be done, and then they entrust it to me and then I unholster it. I mean frame it in the sense, the thoughtful sense.

  36. I think its time the beater blades were included with the Kitchen aid mixer, the mixer should perform properly without having to go to the added expense

  37. I believe this beater blade added to the death of my mixer,
    bogged it down to much and now it has bit the dust. Mixer
    was fine until I started using this product
