I bought this some time ago to dress up my Artisan mixer. I think it looks great and works just fine. Of course it *is* heavy, but that's because it's solid glass. And that being said, you have to treat it as such. Glass breaks. Glass chips. However treat it with care and it'll last. The grey base unscrews from the bowl so you can put it in the microwave when needed, just twist it counterclockwise and it comes off. The lid it comes with is a nice touch too!

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.

Its fine, but not steel

Comments about KitchenAid 5 Quart Glass Bowl:
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.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Great in theory
from Columbia, SC
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.
im so excited when i bought my first kitchen aid with glass bowl attachment. But the bowl didn't last long because it cracked when I'm attaching it to the mixer,i think kitchen aid should do a better job and live up to the name because their product is not cheap.Very disappointed because i only had it for only less than a year.

Love it!!! now I can see everything that is being mixed. Also love that it has a pour spout and comes with a lid/cover. Was pricey, but if you bake a lot; well worth it!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
I bought two of these so I would have extras to use when baking for Christmas and a large family. I went to use and it was cracked. Too expensive for this shoddy of item!!! TOO SCARED TO USE ANY OF MY GLASS MIXING BOWLSAFTER THIS!!!

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?

Broke on second use
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.

Bowl Cracked First Use
from Pacifica, Ca
Got this as a gift. I was so excited till I used it for the first time. The bottom of the bowl cracked and the ring got stuck inside my mixer.

Make America great again
By Michelle O'bama
from San Diego, CA
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!!
from Elkins, WV
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.
