Versatile, On & Off Mixer: Needs a Learning Curve to Remove

Suzanne Natafji 7/17/2017

To give me more bowl options and to be able to microwave (after removing the rubber threaded bowl bottom), refrigerate, and freeze foods that I have used in my Artisan, I got a great deal on a KitchenAid 5-Qt. Tilt-Head Glass Bowl with Measurement Markings and Lid (K5GB), to store foods in the refrigerator. This glass bowl, unlike the metal bowl from India that comes with the unit, will never shed any metal bits. It also gives me double bowl space for different foods that are used in the same or different recipes. The bowl, however, is heavier than the 'stainless steel' bowl, and some buyers have had theirs crack and/ or break. I also use mine as a huge mixing bowl, so I'm constantly using it off of my mixer, too. I had an issue with my bowl: it screwed on fine, but it wouldn't unscrew. After viewing an online video of another buyer's same problem, I learned that if I counterintuitively TIGHTENED the bowl FURTHER, the bottom rubber bowl threads popped out it out from the mixer bowl base! (Note that some Artisans come with the glass bowl as part of their standard package. Pro 600s, however, don't come a glass bowl at all, but a glass bowl package can be purchased separately.) Note: KitchenAid should create a glass bowl that doesn't shatter but is also lighter and can also accommodate a pouring shield.

Cracked Bottom

EngineerMom 7/9/2017

Used three times and loved it. Handwashed each time, bowl and stand ring separately, and thought somehow thought my luck would be different. Went to take it off the stand for use #4. It was a little harder to disengage, but not alarmingly so. Lifted it up and small shards of glass were all over the stand. Took the stand ring off- more shards of glass fell out from the ring thread. So frustrating.

Broke after using a few times

Kelly Jo 7/7/2017

I got a kitchenaid mixer with the glass bowl for christmas. I kept it in the box for a long time because I did not want my roommates to use it and break it. After moving into my own place I was extremely excited to start using my mixer! It worked great for a couple of months. Then one day I was lifting the bowl out of my mixer and half of the bowl completely shattered as I was lifting it out!!! Shards of glass went everywhere and a large chunk fell on my foot and cut it open :( I have loved kitchenaid since I was a little girl using my mom's mixer. I am very disappointed in the quality of the glass bowl. I know now why my mom always opted for the metal bowl! Although it is pretty, I would NOT recommend the glass bowl to anyone!

Love it being glass, but it BROKE!

VB Mom 7/6/2017

I received this as a gift from my mother-in-law because you need a glass bowl to make the perfect mint meringue cookies (a family tradition). Was so excited to use, but after just a few uses, it got a huge crack in it and is no longer usable. Super bummed...

Jessica 6/21/2017

I just recieved this bowl for Mothers Day and on my second use it got a giant crack. I only had used it once before and made sure to hand wash it. Now I can no longer use it. I was really excited about this bowl and had high hopes but sadly it ended up being a giant waste of money!

Great bowl, poor quality

Crazygolfer 6/21/2017

Got this bowl as a second since my 5 qt. tilt head mixer came with a metal bowl. Loved the bowl. Was making bread last week using the dough hook and the lowest speed. Heard a loud crack and when I tried to remove the bowl from the mixer it wouldnt budge. Finally got it loose by using the plastic handle of a spatula to turn the bottom. When I took the bottom piece off, the glass was cracked where the bottom screwed on. There were tiny pieces of slivered glass everywhere. The bowl is a great idea but the quality is so much lower than I expected from Kitchen Aid. Can't afford to keep paying that price for such poor quality.

5qt glass bowl cracked

Bhall236 6/17/2017

Bought this bowl for my wife as a gift. Barely used, maybe 3 times. When she went to use it yesterday she noticed a large crack down the side. No idea how this happened, she is a semi professional baker and extremely careful with her tools. Very disappointed, it is not even remotely safe to use now. Such a waste of money.

Why aren't these bowls tempered glass???

rd1213 4/1/2017

Omg, I could not be more disappointed in this product! I have had my mixer for a while and loved the glass bowl. But today while making babka (a soft sweet bread dough) the bowl shattered!! And by shattered, I meant teensy, tiny shards of slivered glass ALL OVER MY KITCHEN!!! Why the heck aren't these bowls tempered?? I'm so disappointed by this! Not only did I have to throw away the dough in process, but all the ingredients on my counter, too! Obviously I will be buying a replacement bowl because I'm not tossing my whole KitchenAid, but I'll be looking for a steel bowl like my old mixer because I can't risk that again, especially with two dogs in the house (thankfully they were on a walk at the time)!

Bowl Cracked... so disappointed!

SprinklesAM 3/27/2017

I love my KitchenAid Mixer and had bought it because of it's long lasting durability and timelessness. I was so excited to have the glass bowl with my mixer, because it has a spout and a lid which came in handy. However, just recently the bowl has cracked with a 7 inch crack down the side... I really couldn't believe it. I'm disappointed because the glass bowl is not cheap. It was nice while it lasted, but I was greatly surprised that it did crack because it seems to be heavy duty, that is just not the case. I'm so disappointed in KitchenAid.

Its fine, but not steel

Rye Bread 3/18/2017

The KSM105 was given to me for Christmas. I thought the glass bowl that was included with it was pretty nifty. I really liked that you could see the ingredients in your bowl. It made it really easy to make sure you didn't have any thing that was stuck to the bowl not getting mixed in. Luckily the bowl has not cracked on me like I've seen in numerous other reviews about this bowl, but it does chip extremely easily. The glass is not very well made. My biggest disappointment is that there is no pouring shield for this bowl. At least not that I could find. With this particular model and the bowl you have to have one. Its not really optional unless you enjoy having half of your ingredients on the counter top and floor.

Great in theory

ginamaria 3/15/2017

The bowl is great. Unfortunately, one day when I opened up my cupboard, the bowl had shattered! I have it in a safe place and take great care with it. I'm so sad that it broke and for such a high price, I'm more than a little disappointed. Replacing the bowl is out of my price range and it's a huge worry that this might happen again if I did spend the money.

Base Broke

Tim 1/28/2017

I bought this for my wife 2 months ago. She loved it until today. After washing the bowl, the base cracked as she was reattaching it to the mixer stand. As evidenced by the many reviews I've just read on your site, this is a known problem and is very upsetting to customers like myself who pay a premium price expecting to get high quality that the KitchenAid brand has been known for in the past. Is KitchenAid doing anything to redesign the base?

Sheryl 1/15/2017

Broke the second time we used it on our brand new mixer. The bowl snapped completely off from the base where it connects to the mixer, while mixing cookies. We used the glass bowl for the second batch because the first batch of cookies was contaminated from metal and black grease still on the stainless steel mixing bowl after washing.

Make America great again

Michelle O'bama 12/29/2016

I just bought this 5 quart glass mixer bowl with measuring marks and lid. Wow, what a disappointment! Does "Made in Mexico" mean anything to you? Let me describe as gently as I can, maybe my anger might crack this inferior blown glass. It's no imitation - the lid and glass are both stamped "KitchenAid". Living here 19 miles from the border of Mexico, I avoid buying their glass. It is not tempered properly, and usually full of bubbles (holes), and has been known to break by the temperature changes alone! Lo and behold, there are more than twenty bubbles in this glass bowl! I am surprised to be duped by a "reputable" company unwilling to pay fair wages and resorts to outsourcing. Listen, if you were dumped on in this past financial meltdown, it was because of companies like this. So if you lost your job and can't get better than minimum wage - stay away from KitchenAid until they turn around. This item gets two stars: one star for it actually being a glass bowl, and another for not cracking on the first wash.

Bowl Cracked First Time Used! Very disappointed!!

WVNani 12/18/2016

I purchased the KitchenAid Deluxe Edition Stand Mixer a while ago and didn't have space on my counter so I had not unpacked it. My son and I were getting ready to make Christmas cookies and he asked me if I had a KitchenAid mixer. We got it out of the box, set it up and mixed up the batter. Removed the bowl, washed it and put it back on and it cracked!!! I was totally shocked! With the cost of these mixers, I would expect better quality. I'm extremely disappointed.

Mew124 12/12/2016

I receive this as a gift and I absolutely love it. I love that it comes with a lid so dust isn't collecting in the bowl. Having the pouring lip definitely eliminates spills as well. I know a lot of people said they're both has cracked, my advice is to keep your box and your receipt and call customer service if you're bowl cracks. My ice cream attachment actually broke and KitchenAid sent me a brand new one and I didn't even have the receipt. So I give them 5 stars for their customer service as well.

My bowl CRACKED! So disappointed...

Chef Tash 12/5/2016

I've owned my mixer for almost four years taking meticulous care of it, and the glass bowl that came with it. Last night, my bowl just cracks, as Im sliding the mixer a few inches on my countertop, by the base, might I add. I call the KitchenAid customer service number listed on this website. At first the rep told me I would have to purchase a new bowl at full price. I then asked to speak to a supervisor and was put on hold then told by the rep, I could get a discount and free 5-7 day shipping. The supervisor I asked for never came to the phone. As I told the rep, their bowl is available cheaper through Prime Now, and I can have it delivered to my home today. I've been a loyal customer buying all sorts of attachments, and for what we paid for this mixer, KitchenAid should have done more. Very disappointed KitchenAid.

Be Careful! Cracks Easily!

shopgirlmn 11/6/2016

I registered for this for my wedding. Could not imagine a kitchen without a mixer and I liked how you could see the ingredients in the bowl. I hand wash this bowl every time I use it. I was hand washing it earlier today after baking a cake. I heard a pop and the bowl had a huge crack it it. I love the look and utility of the bowl, but I will probably be sticking to metal from now on.

Mostly Happy with mine

Euni the Cake Lady 9/20/2016

I have had my mixer about 6 months. I now average a cake a week (everyone loves lemon pound cakes). I find the bowl heavy but then again I'm 80. Donna the Dough Girl's review caught my eye. I have the opposite problem. My bowl locks with the handle close to the mixer but has not cracked. Probably because I have to be careful not to mash my fingers. The other thing is, I am left handed! That coupled with the fact that it's heavy causes me to be more careful not to drop it makes me exercise caution. Seating it requires a second effort sometimes. Otherwise I am happy with the bowl. The only other thing is my switch doesn't move easily from setting to setting.

Anna Banana 8/26/2016

I was gifted a bowl for Christmas as I only had the metal bowl. I could never get the bowl to sit in place and it would move around so much so i had to hold it with both hands and only on the lowest speed. I received a replacement bowl after contacting kitchenaid. Sad to say the same thing happened. It won't lock into place. For something that costs so much money I am really disappointed.

Beware of the glass bowl

Sad in nc 8/17/2016

I love love love the 5qt mixer i purchased but it came with the glass bowl which looks very nice and is handy for seeing your ingredients but the 3rd time it was used the very bottom where the bowl locks in cracked with tiny shards of glass getting in my finger. I have wanted one of these mixers my whole life and after spurging on the purchase i am disappointed in the glass quality and wish mine had come with the metal bowl. Now im stuck with a 300 counter decoration or spending 60-70 to buy a new bowl or using it without it being locked in place.

Wonderful Bowl But With a Fatal Flaw

Donna the Dough Girl 8/3/2016

I have had my glass bowl for a couple years and I love it. It's great for all kind of mixing tasks but especially for cakes and breads. Because it's clear it is easy to see to make sure that everything is mixed in; no flour or liquid lying unmixed in the bottom. It is also great for measuring bread rise because you can clearly see when the dough has doubled, with or without the measurement marks on the side. BUT it is so easy to break the bowl just securing it into the mixer stand base. The optimism way to secure it brings the spout in such close contact with the back of the stand that the slightest touch can chip or crack the spout. (See pix) I'm so sorry that mine has chipped and cracked just from regular use. I wish this had a better design.

Glad to learn it was not just mine

EJ 5/13/2016

I upgraded from the 4.5 quart to this mixer and the glass bowl broke the first month. I thought it was just me! The bowl has functional problems. First - it does not attach to the mixer very well. It takes multiple tries and does not feel sturdy in the base. And as a result of juggling to get in the pour spout hit the machine and it cracked the bowl. I now use my 4.5 quart metal bowl - although the whole reason I purchased was for the larger capacity since I use very often. I did call Customer Service and they are shipping a new one - I just wish I could have replaced with Metal bowl. I am very nervous about using the glass bowl again but really do need the larger size. I am disappointed I will have to ultimately purchase the metal bowl and spend more money - but do appreciate Kitchen aid replacing the broken bowl. I would recommend the mixer but not the glass bowl.

So sad- broken glass bowl after 4 uses

Baker222 4/17/2016

I am so upset-- the bowl cracked after a couple uses. I carefully hand wash it every time. I put it in the standing mixer. Then a few minutes later we heard a popping/cracking sound and looked over to see a crack in the glass. Something about the pressure of locking it in place stressed the glass. I would not recommend this glass bowl.

Bowl Shattered

Megan 4/12/2016

I've had my Kitchenaid mixer with this glass bowl for about 5 months now. While using the mixer the silver cover from the top attachment spot fell down into the bowl while the mixer was on. My bowl immediately Shattered everywhere and the mixer jammed up and stopped turning. I called Kitchenaid customer service and they are sending my a new one since mine was still under warranty. Good job to customer service but this bowl needs to be more sturdy. I am looking into getting the stainless steel bowl now.

Beth the Baker 3/9/2016

I have had this glass bowl for about a year now. I had just made some cookies and hand washed the bowl and set it down to dry on a t-towel on my counter. I then put another bowl down next to it and it must have hit the glass bowl just right because it made a sound and I noticed a huge chip on the rim. :( I love my KitchenAid Mixer and use it almost every weekend for baking but I was disappointed that such a minor tap from another bowl [from one of my vintage - 50 year old FireKing jadite bowls] could do the type of damage it did.

3 cleaning and the bottom broke off... Disappointed!

Ravo 1/26/2016

I got this bowl for Christmas 2014. It stayed in storage for awhile because I used the other bowl that came with my mixer. When I finally took it out after about 10 months to 1 year and the third time I ever used it I went to clean it and the bottom broke out of it. For the price of the product you would think you could get more use out of it. I'm just super disappointed because I thought I took good care of it! Not to mention the plastics threaded thing constantly fell off!

I've had this glass bowl for years, and loved it and received so many compliments on it. However, yesterday, I picked it up, and it shattered in my hand! There was no amount of force on it, and it didn't touch anything else, it just broke in multiple pieces. I'm not looking forward to paying such a high price to replace something that broke when not even in use!

Waited a literal lifetime to get my kitchenaid stand mixer. Beyond excited. Came with stunning glass bowl with lid. Then I went to use it. Flour everywhere!! I said: "No problem, I'll just buy a splatter shield". Come to find out, most unfortunately, there is none to fit the bowl. Very tiresome as well as frustrating and truly disappointed. Seems as though I'd have to buy an additional bowl just to be able to then buy a splatter shield to fit said bowl. This makes no sense. One more thing; getting the bowl to sit right in order for it to lock in place should not be as difficult as it is.

My bowl broke!

Stgeorges gal 1/6/2016

I was so excited to get this bowl as a gift but the excitement lasted a very quick hour! Ready to bake Santa's cookies with my nieces and nephew and BAM it shatters glass all over counter! With Santa's cookie mix! What kind of product is this and after reading this reviews evidently that is the norm?????

Great Design/Poor Functionality

Joan 1/2/2016

I love the look of this bowl! I like to keep my Kitchen Aid on the counter as I love the design but it looks unfinished without a bowl attached. The clear bowl "lightens" up the cramped space in my kitchen. The bowl however never quite sets right in the base - it is very hard to get it to set down and lock which I had accepted as part of the design. Today however, I lifted it after cleaning and barely touched a mixing bowl next too it (expecting the mixing bowl to break) but a large chipped hole came cleanly out of the side of the bowl where it touched. I don't see how this happens....its a clean break, round hole! And the bowls are so expensive, I can't afford a new one....I'll be a dying it to the holiday recycling!

Bowl broke while making frosting

Mae 12/28/2015

I got this as a gift not long ago and while I was mixing frosting, it just broke and glass went everywhere. I can't believe this happened, I loved my bowl. I don't understand how it broke.

freddie45 12/18/2015

i got this for a xmas gift i love that it is microwaveable but it shattered with in the first month making pizza dough. got it replaced, but the handle is in the wrong spot to lock the bowl down. the bowl wobbles a lot and when you take the bowl off the grey ring is not on the bowl very well. need to be fixed

My glass bowl shattered!

Mae 12/6/2015

I love this bowl with all that I am as a baker, and as I was mixing up some cream cheese frosting for some cinnamon rolls I had just made, the bowl shattered along the rim and splintered and cracked all the way through to the base of the bowl. I am SO sad!! This bowl was my favorite part of baking because I could see what I was mixing. I would buy it again if I could afford it, but I was NOT expecting it to break!! Is there anything that can be done? A warranty?

Yes, I recommend this product
