Here is how to use the shield with good results: (1) Make sure the shield is compatible with your bowl. (2) Mix in dry ingredients on LOW speed. It will keep the flour from flying out of the bowl. (3) Pour liquids slowly, hitting the spout on the shield. It will flow down to the sides of the bowl. This is especially convenient for incorporating sugar water into egg whites. I love my shield and use it every time I use the mixer. I have had my setup for over 24 years and have made over 1,000 cakes with it. I am a very messy cook and the shield has been a lifesaver.

A few months ago i purchase a Kitchen stand mixer. it came with a glass bowl. After several uses i decided that i wanted the pouring shield to stop the flour and other dry ingredients from flying out of the bowl. When i went to purchase this shield i found that it dose not fit on a glass bowl, which forced me to buy a new stainless steel bowl to use with my mixer. Today as I used the pouring shield for the first time i discovered the shield does not work at all. In fact it made a bigger mess then would have without the shield. I have come to the conclusion that the pouring shield is a cheap and poorly made product that is way over priced and i complete waste of money.From this product to work right, Kitchen Aid needs to make it fit tightly and securely to the bowl. as make it a complete circle instead of partial circle.

NOT FOR LEFTIES!
By Dainty Di
Comments about KitchenAid Mixer Stand Pouring Shield:
I just bought a new mixer and got the shield to go with it and realized that it's a right-handed spout. If I turn it so the spout is on the left, how I would use it, the open area is in the front. Not liking that! Will have to exchange it for the one that costs twice as much and has no open area (which is probably better anyway!)
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Doesn't work at all.
from Springfield, OH
I just got this today for my 4.5 qt stainless steel mixing bowl. Even with a piece of saran wrap across the open area to help keep down the mess, it fit loosely and slipped off and flour got out between the top of the bowl and the bottom of the guard, even when it was on. Badly fitting. Made a bigger mess than no shield would have. Never using this one again!
Good, but could be better

If it stayed on, it would be great, but it pops off with the least touch...like when you are pouring ingredients in the bowl.

Very prompt delivery!

This product is horrible. Open area allows liquid or ingredients to spill while using. Does not hold firm to bowl.

Please read product description! States pouring shield fits onto mixing bowl to help you "ADD" ingredients without making a mess. I think shield works perfectly fine!

Shield does not function as designed.
from Benton MO
The shield I have, which is new and protected, does not stay in place, so it is not useful. I would like a replacement shield to try and an explanation about product quality on this item.

I checked to be sure this pour shield is meant to fit my mixer model, K45SS, and it is. But, the shield won't stay on the bowl. It seems as if it is just a bit too big, so the tension is too much, and the ends pop out of the groove they're supposed to fit into. Doesn't sound like much, but it renders the item useless. Too bad; it's a great idea, poorly executed, in my book.
It is effective, but...

... I wish it fit my 4.5-quart bowl better, i.e., snugly. It sits rather loosely on the top.
