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 my KA and always wanted to have the glass bowl. After saving some money, i went and splurged on one. It was great! The measurements are somewhat accurate, and the bowl is heavy. I treated with such good care and I always hand washed it. Then this morning my 6yo was helping me making banana bread. He had smashed the bananas on a regular plate and his job was to add the bananas to the bowl. The playe slipped from his hands and fell into the bowl, which caused to break it!! I was expecting the PLATE to break, not the heavy, solid glass bowl. I was very disappointed with the quality because I have some Pyrex bowls that went through way worse beatings and are still standing strong. So I guess this bowl is more for decorative purpose rather than regular uses. I am so upset specially because of the steep price I have paid for it. Also, i have to agree with the previous review that stated that the cover guard doesn't fit the bowl, so there is always going to be flour "splashed" all over the counter.

Comments about KitchenAid 5 Quart Glass Bowl:
So much better than silver one. Easy to see measures and can also use to let dough rise in. It's the best!

Chipped at top and cracked all the way down vertically
By Full time Mom
from Republic, MO
Have been using this for several years with no issues and just last week I saw a small chip on top of the bowl. Looking closer, there is a now a split from the chip all the way down to the bottom. I can move the split glass with my hands, luckily it has not shattered yet like some of these other people. I am afraid of using it now.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Broke in my hands!
from Seattle, WA
I've had this glass bowl for years, and loved it and received so many compliments on it. However, yesterday, I picked it up, and it shattered in my hand! There was no amount of force on it, and it didn't touch anything else, it just broke in multiple pieces. I'm not looking forward to paying such a high price to replace something that broke when not even in use!
3 cleaning and the bottom broke off... Disappointed!
from Grand Rapids, Mi
I got this bowl for Christmas 2014. It stayed in storage for awhile because I used the other bowl that came with my mixer. When I finally took it out after about 10 months to 1 year and the third time I ever used it I went to clean it and the bottom broke out of it. For the price of the product you would think you could get more use out of it. I'm just super disappointed because I thought I took good care of it! Not to mention the plastics threaded thing constantly fell off!

Broke After 2 Uses
from Boston, MA
I purchased this bowl a few weeks ago to replace the metal bowl that came with my unit. Unfortunately, the second time I attempted to plug the bowl in to the base, the entire bottom fitting shattered! Not the quality I expected from KitchenAid.

Bottom of Bowl
from Haymarket, VA
Waited a literal lifetime to get my kitchenaid stand mixer. Beyond excited. Came with stunning glass bowl with lid. Then I went to use it. Flour everywhere!! I said: "No problem, I'll just buy a splatter shield". Come to find out, most unfortunately, there is none to fit the bowl. Very tiresome as well as frustrating and truly disappointed. Seems as though I'd have to buy an additional bowl just to be able to then buy a splatter shield to fit said bowl. This makes no sense. One more thing; getting the bowl to sit right in order for it to lock in place should not be as difficult as it is.
My bowl broke!
By Stgeorges gal
from Austin, TX
I was so excited to get this bowl as a gift but the excitement lasted a very quick hour! Ready to bake Santa's cookies with my nieces and nephew and BAM it shatters glass all over counter! With Santa's cookie mix!What kind of product is this and after reading this reviews evidently that is the norm?????
Great Design/Poor Functionality
I love the look of this bowl! I like to keep my Kitchen Aid on the counter as I love the design but it looks unfinished without a bowl attached. The clear bowl "lightens" up the cramped space in my kitchen. The bowl however never quite sets right in the base - it is very hard to get it to set down and lock which I had accepted as part of the design. Today however, I lifted it after cleaning and barely touched a mixing bowl next too it (expecting the mixing bowl to break) but a large chipped hole came cleanly out of the side of the bowl where it touched. I don't see how this happens....its a clean break, round hole! And the bowls are so expensive, I can't afford a new one....I'll be a dying it to the holiday recycling!

Bowl broke while making frosting
from Beaverton, OR
I got this as a gift not long ago and while I was mixing frosting, it just broke and glass went everywhere. I can't believe this happened, I loved my bowl. I don't understand how it broke.
love kitchenaid product but not this one
i got this for a xmas gift i love that it is microwaveable but it shattered with in the first month making pizza dough. got it replaced, but the handle is in the wrong spot to lock the bowl down. the bowl wobbles a lot and when you take the bowl off the grey ring is not on the bowl very well. need to be fixed
