It does its job. Sometimes flour flies out and it's lose on the bowl. But it's good enough.

What did you change the old style pour shield for. Our daughter and Daughter in law wanted a pour shield for their mixers and this one just doesn't work. POPS off and the opening lets flour out everywhere. The Old one was closed ALL the WAY AROUND and WORKED GREAT!!

Comments about KitchenAid Mixer Stand Pouring Shield:
I'm so sad. This thing is worthless. It doesn't stay on at all. May work as a cover, but could never use for pouring.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

from Waipahu HI
I have used the pouring shield a few times and it worked great for me with the wet mixes but with straight dry ingredients, it's exactly like people have said. I modified mine a bit to help this but then I have my own shop I can do this in. If they don't have a redesign for the pouring shield you may want to try some modifications to make it work better for what you're using it for. The 3 star rating is basically because it works for me one way but not the other. So sort of a neutral rating.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Good for those extra messy mixes.
from Dallas, TX
This item is good for those extra messy mixes that have lots of dry ingredients that have to be added or for really liquid mixes that tend to make a splash. Some say this item needs to be more closed and allows too much to escape unlike a previous model. I haven't used the other version but would say that if there is to be a really wide chute then maybe the back can be closed up a little more. There are two areas where material can fly out of the bowl. However, I think it is much nicer than to have nothing at all. Some say that this item doesn't fit the bowl or it falls off of the bowl when the mixer is working. I found that it fit my bowl nicely. There are tabs that go on the outside of the bowl. If you fit two tabs on the outside of the bowl and find that there is one on the inside all you have to do is slightly and gently open the shield to fit the other tab on the outside. This allows the shield to gently hug the outside of the bowl. Voilà!Yes it would be nice to have the shield almost go all the way around except for the chute but I am happy with this item. I have purchased two so far. I do think the price could be improved on since the shield does have such big opening and is so easy to break. I'm sure I'll be buying more. If this is redesigned have a wide chute is great but the wide opening in the back is not. Perhaps they could be combined somehow or the opening in the back narrowed.

Terrible design. Doesn't work very well
from Tampa, FL
I got the 5qt tilt-head stand mixer a couple years ago for Christmas and was so excited it came with the pouring/splatter shield. Unfortunately, I was sorely disappointed when the shield did nothing to keep the dry ingredients from flying out of the bowl and all over my counter and floor! I have since got the Blass bowl (which i love) and attempted to try the shield again - what was I thinking?! Flour was everywhere! The pour spout is also was too small to pour anything like sugar or flour where partials can go flying. Very poor design. They need to recreate this cover so that it not only stays securely on the bowl (both glass and metal), but close off the openings so dry ingredients don't have a chancestors of fly out of the bowl.

Doesn't stay on. Poorly designed
from Denton, Tx
I was so excited this came with the stand mixer I bought the other day... then I tried using it. It doesn't even stay on. You have to make sure it lines up correctly and even then it won't stay on. It's completely useless. I should have saved myself $70 and got the cheaper model that didn't come with this.

By cookie time!
from southwest ohio
My husband bought me the Artisian stand mixer a couple of months ago, I thought it was weird that it did not come with a pouring shield, so i bought it separately and what a disappointment. It doesn't close /fit tight around the bowl and the gap allows flour to spray out onto the surrounding area. I threw out the packaging, or i would return it. I love the mixer, it was an upgrade from a competing stand mixer,and it is far better. I just wish the shield worked.
Horrible design, does not stay on, NEEDS REDESIGN
from Boston, MA
I bought this for my wife and am glad I tried it out first. It will not stay on at all and slips off constantly. Also I am left handed and it would be very cumbersome for me to use. Expected much better from KitchenAid brand.
Don't waste your money
from Fairview, NC
I purchased this shield to go on my new Kitchen Aid mixer and it does not fit as securely as I expected...I'm highly disappointed. If I had not thrown my box away I would have returned it to the store.
By Happy Baker
from Decatur, GA
I received this shield with my new 5 qt. mixer. It arrived warped & would not fit properly on the bowl. When I tried to use it flour was flying all over the kitchen counter. After reading some of the other reviews I agree it is a poor design. Would like to return it for replacement since it did arrive damaged.
Not for lefthanded people
from Duluth, Mn
The design needs to be improved upon. It's not functional for lefthanded people and doesn't stay on.
