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!

Comments about KitchenAid 5 Quart Glass Bowl:
I've had this bowl for years and never had a problem... until the plastic piece that holds the base down broke. Now the bowl is useless as far as using it with the mixer. I've looked online to purchase a replacement and can't find one. I can buy replacement lids, but not the plastic base.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Glad to learn it was not just mine
I upgraded from the 4.5 quart to this mixer and the glass bowl broke the first month. I thought it was just me! The bowl has functional problems. First - it does not attach to the mixer very well. It takes multiple tries and does not feel sturdy in the base. And as a result of juggling to get in the pour spout hit the machine and it cracked the bowl. I now use my 4.5 quart metal bowl - although the whole reason I purchased was for the larger capacity since I use very often. I did call Customer Service and they are shipping a new one - I just wish I could have replaced with Metal bowl. I am very nervous about using the glass bowl again but really do need the larger size. I am disappointed I will have to ultimately purchase the metal bowl and spend more money - but do appreciate Kitchen aid replacing the broken bowl. I would recommend the mixer but not the glass bowl.

So sad- broken glass bowl after 4 uses
from Ocala, FL
I am so upset-- the bowl cracked after a couple uses. I carefully hand wash it every time. I put it in the standing mixer. Then a few minutes later we heard a popping/cracking sound and looked over to see a crack in the glass. Something about the pressure of locking it in place stressed the glass. I would not recommend this glass bowl.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I've had my Kitchenaid mixer with this glass bowl for about 5 months now. While using the mixer the silver cover from the top attachment spot fell down into the bowl while the mixer was on. My bowl immediately Shattered everywhere and the mixer jammed up and stopped turning. I called Kitchenaid customer service and they are sending my a new one since mine was still under warranty. Good job to customer service but this bowl needs to be more sturdy. I am looking into getting the stainless steel bowl now.

Chipped after few uses
By Foran Foreign
I received this as gift from my grandmother for my wedding. It was the kitchenaid mixer, with a glass bowl. The glass bowl broke after about 4 uses :( simply was pouring a glass measuring cup with milk into the glass bowl and it chipped right at the spout. So upset this happened :( not sure what to do about it now. Kitchenaid is great, but can be expensive! With the name and price attached to it, I expected this bowl to last.
So bummed that it's broken.
I'm so sad and bummed about my kitchenaid glass mixing bowl. It's what makes my mixer look so great on the counter, and I loved it. Today, I made some cake batter and washed the bowl. I set it down on the counter and then heard it crack. What a mess - glass everywhere. I always hand washed it and was so careful. For the price, I sure wish it was tougher.
I am so disappointed in my glass mixing bowl. It has chips on the rim, I always hand wash and dry it and I have no idea how the chips came to be. My mixer is such an amazing appliance, but to replace the glass bowl is very expensive.

I have had this glass bowl for about a year now. I had just made some cookies and hand washed the bowl and set it down to dry on a t-towel on my counter. I then put another bowl down next to it and it must have hit the glass bowl just right because it made a sound and I noticed a huge chip on the rim. :( I love my KitchenAid Mixer and use it almost every weekend for baking but I was disappointed that such a minor tap from another bowl [from one of my vintage - 50 year old FireKing jadite bowls] could do the type of damage it did.

makes baking easy
from Albany, New York
So much better than silver one. Easy to see measures and can also use to let dough rise in. It's the best!
