New Metro Design's Beater Blade is an electric mixer attachment which thoroughly mixes batter, eliminating the need to stop and scrape the bowl manually. Engineered for use with top brand electric stand mixers, including most models offered by KitchenAid, Cuisinart, DeLonghi and Viking, the new Beater Blade beats, scrapes, folds and incorporates ingredients thoroughly for fool-proof baking. The new Beater Blade+ ingeniously improves on the functionality of standard V-shaped beaters offered with high-end stand mixers by crafting a high-quality, enhanced blade that includes a flexible rubber "wing" down the entire length of both sides of the blade. The durable, food-grade edging simulates the action of a powerful spatula to gently, yet thoroughly scrape the bowl clean. The wing-system design acts like a wiper blade that continuously scrapes sides and bottom of bowl while it mixes virtually eliminating hand-scraping and batter build-up on the blade. BeaterBlade's state-of-the-art design continuously and automatically scrapes batters during mixing, which can speed up the process by as much as 50 percent. By eliminating the need to turn off and on the mixer to scrape the bowl, Beater Blade reduces wear of the motor of the mixer, as well. New Metro Design's Beater Blade excels in a full range of mixing applications, including creaming butter, sugar and eggs to fluffy perfection, and preparing frostings and pastry creams quickly and easily. Model KA-TH fits all KitchenAid tilt head mixers regardless of the KitchenAid model numbers.

Shazam! These two chefs know why Kitchenaid wishes they'd thought of this patented new beater blade! Jun 14, 2009
First, I'll start by saying we are two gourmet nuts in this household.
Okay, so that self-disclosure said, I read about these blades before they ever came out in one of my gourmet magazines. I found it interesting that Kitchenaid wasn't the one to come up with it and get the patent. It's brilliant! But only if it really works...
I love the Kitchenaid mixers and think they are among the best out there. They have just been improved, but, oddly not by Kitchenaid!
This speeds up your mixing time by half! The only thing I didn't like about my God-of-all-mixers was having to stop, lower the bowl, stir, and continue in order to get a perfectly mixed food product. Now, I put this blade in (which, unlike my other blade that came with my mixer, is also dishwasher safe mind you...another plus for hygeine and time management!) and add my ingredients and now I just walk away and work on the rest of my recipe.
And, I mean to tell you, it reaches every last crumb! This is some serious mixing!
I have used it on the hardest to stir ingredients...from bread dough to sugar cookie dough, to pasta mixtures to foccacia dough...this blade has seen some mixing!
Because you need a different blade for each model of beater, be sure to look at your serial number and matching up the info of what your size is etc on the Kitchenaid site before ordering if you need to. I wonder if this is what made some other blades snap--getting the wrong size? I say this because we cook all 3 meals and 2 snacks we eat each day and we use this thing constantly and it's bullet proof material :-) and we beat it up without any issues. but there are so many different blades you have to be careful to get the right one for your model.
Plus, it had the highest of ratings from my unbiased cooking mag reviews of it as it was coming out.
Personally, we'll never use the old beater blade again..so much so we tossed it in the trash the first time we used this one. It's a new era in mixing, Kitchenaiders! (and owners of other mixers that this fits) And, for us, a must have.
Negatives: I had to do a little research to ensure I got the right blade for my mixer. I wish they would list the mixer name in order to correctly order the right blade since Kithenaid makes so many different style mixers. In other words, If I could have read "fits the Kitchenaid professional model" I would have ordered the correct size first instead of first ordering the wrong one based upon quart size then having to return it after fully studying the serial model number and doing some research.
For me, that's the only negative. I think this blade ROCKS the KITCHEN!

Model numbers included here May 03, 2012
By M. Thompson
This really cuts down on the time it takes to prepare anything. You will not have to wipe down the sides of your bowl when using this blade and it pretty much makes the KitchenAid blade obsolete. However, make sure you adjust your mixer to the perfect level so it wipes the bowl but does not hit the bowl (and therefore break or make noise). The image with instructions on how to adjust your mixer is available in one of the customer images.
Also, make sure you get the right blade for your mixer. There is a website page that lists the KitchenAid mixers and which blades correspond to each. I will link it at the end but I thought it would be a snap to just list them here as well. I hope this helps!
You are supposed to match the first 3-4 digits of the model with the blade (basically, you don't need the last part of the model number that includes the color of your mixer). On my KitchenAid mixer, the model number was on the base. I can't say for sure if every model has the number there. The BeaterBlade model number is listed here under Product Details. Mine was the KA-TH.

The beater is excellent. Really does the job, but don't use it with nuts; they'll shred the soft blades.

Your Use will Determine the Beater Blade's Value to You Dec 01, 2008
I purchased the Beater Blade to use with my Viking 7-Qt. mixer; my primary use of that machine is making artisan breads.
I love my Viking mixer for bread making, but occasionally use it to make cookies which contain a high proportion of oatmeal. Thus, the dry ingredients are prone to gathering along the sides and bottom of the mixing bowl and require that I stop the mixer, lift the head and move the ingredients using a spatula. While that isn't exactly a Herculean task, it is annoying. However, due to a stubborn streak and a less than industrious attitude on the particular day, I tried scraping the side of the bowl while the mixer was down and moving - even though I know better. The result was a broken spatula - just as one would expect.
When I saw this Beater Blade, I thought it might solve the problem. Once you have adjusted the Beater Blade, it does an excellent job of clearing the sides and bottom of the bowl. If you mix a lot of cookie dough or batter-type foods, then this item is well worth the money you will spend for it. The Beater Blade doesn't generate heat like the metal beaters, and, as a result, shortenings do not melt during creaming. The final product is much less "soupy" than when making cookie doughs using a metal beater. However, if you use your mixer primarily for breads, as I do, then the the Beater Blade is probably something you can live without.
I rated this item four stars because its utility is questionable in relation to the cost. Further, I have some concern about the longevity of the blade itself and whether it will wear quickly or whether it will become brittle if washed in the dishwasher.
