I have had my Kitchen Aid stand mixer for over 15 years. It is the most used small appliance in our home! I had seen the Scrape-A-Bowl in the store, but was very hesitant about purchasing one. I received a Scrape-A-Bowl for Christmas and cannot believe I waited so long for such a great added bonus for my Kitchen Aid mixer! I will probably not use my other beaters since this one does such a great job! In the past the bowl always had some flour or cake mix in the bottom of the bowl, not now since this beater scraps as it goes. I have washed it in the dishwasher and it did just fine. As much as we use it we might need to purchase another one!
