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.

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.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

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.

I receive this as a gift and I absolutely love it. I love that it comes with a lid so dust isn't collecting in the bowl. Having the pouring lip definitely eliminates spills as well. I know a lot of people said they're both has cracked, my advice is to keep your box and your receipt and call customer service if you're bowl cracks. My ice cream attachment actually broke and KitchenAid sent me a brand new one and I didn't even have the receipt. So I give them 5 stars for their customer service as well.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

My bowl CRACKED! So disappointed...
By Chef Tash
from Raleigh, NC
I've owned my mixer for almost four years taking meticulous care of it, and the glass bowl that came with it. Last night, my bowl just cracks, as Im sliding the mixer a few inches on my countertop, by the base, might I add. I call the KitchenAid customer service number listed on this website. At first the rep told me I would have to purchase a new bowl at full price. I then asked to speak to a supervisor and was put on hold then told by the rep, I could get a discount and free 5-7 day shipping. The supervisor I asked for never came to the phone. As I told the rep, their bowl is available cheaper through Prime Now, and I can have it delivered to my home today. I've been a loyal customer buying all sorts of attachments, and for what we paid for this mixer, KitchenAid should have done more. Very disappointed KitchenAid.

Be Careful! Cracks Easily!
from Minneapolis, MN
I registered for this for my wedding. Could not imagine a kitchen without a mixer and I liked how you could see the ingredients in the bowl. I hand wash this bowl every time I use it. I was hand washing it earlier today after baking a cake. I heard a pop and the bowl had a huge crack it it. I love the look and utility of the bowl, but I will probably be sticking to metal from now on.

Great product!!! Nice to have the option to have a glass bowl.
Mostly Happy with mine
By Euni the Cake Lady
from Mechanicsville, VA
I have had my mixer about 6 months. I now average a cake a week (everyone loves lemon pound cakes). I find the bowl heavy but then again I'm 80. Donna the Dough Girl's review caught my eye. I have the opposite problem. My bowl locks with the handle close to the mixer but has not cracked. Probably because I have to be careful not to mash my fingers. The other thing is, I am left handed! That coupled with the fact that it's heavy causes me to be more careful not to drop it makes me exercise caution. Seating it requires a second effort sometimes. Otherwise I am happy with the bowl. The only other thing is my switch doesn't move easily from setting to setting.

I was gifted a bowl for Christmas as I only had the metal bowl. I could never get the bowl to sit in place and it would move around so much so i had to hold it with both hands and only on the lowest speed. I received a replacement bowl after contacting kitchenaid. Sad to say the same thing happened. It won't lock into place. For something that costs so much money I am really disappointed.
