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 only had this a short time, when it chipped on the rim. The bowl is way too heavy and then when you have something in it, it is almost too heavy for me to lift. In fact, it's so heavy, I was really surprised that it chipped. I like the metal bowls much better!!!!

Comments about KitchenAid 5 Quart Glass Bowl:
My wife and I received the KitchenAid with the K5GB glass bowls as a wedding gift. We have used it many, many times for various cooking projects and have thought to ourselves EVERY time, "It sure would be nice to have a shield for these bowls to keep ingredients from shooting out while mixing." Alas, KitchenAid does NOT make any shields that are compatible for this model of bowl. Add in the additional weight of the glass bowl and it has created an equation for dissatisfied customers.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Second time this bowl has broke. It's Christmas Eve and my kitchen is covered in glass and Chicken Dip!!! The bottom doesn't attach well and the bowl breaks easily!! Never AGAIN. I will buy a metal next time. Love my mixer. Kitchen Aide needs to fix this problem

About Me Gourmet Chef
Love being able to see how well mixed things are.Love the increased height and capacity of the bowl eliminates flour "blow back" that necessitated a bulky screen with the standard bowl. Wonderful for storing batter, chilling dough having a lid was a great idea. Also keeps the bowl debris free when you just leave the mixer out. Perfect and worth the price.

The bowl is really nice. I like that this bowl has measurements on the side and the lid that you can keep on top so the bowl stays clean.
very handy to use

Used it for the first time to mix a cake, nice capacity, I like the pouring spout, but it is pretty heavy when it is full.... for pouring.
