    The KitchenAid Flex Edge Beater works with my 8 qt commercial KitchenAid mixer. The rubber flex edge hits the sides of the bowl just fine. It is solidly built, and is very light weight (aluminum) compared to my stainless steel paddle.

    LOVE!! Got this for my 8qt Kitchenaid, and works so well. it's my favorite beater, I now have 3 more of them. even thought it says 7quart it works great with my 8qt. I highly recommend it

    I love the idea of the scraping beater! However, if there is a lot of liquid in your recipe it will sling liqyid everywhere if you aren't careful. Always start your mixer on low and gradually increase speed.

    This flex edged paddle attachment is great! It performs as advertised, cleanly scraping the sides of my mixer bowl. Great for batters! It seemed to deflate my meringue buttercream a bit more than the paddle without the rubber edge, even though it was the first use and it hadn't touched fat previously, so I don't think I'd recommend it for that. If you're using it for royal icing, a reminder to make sure it never touches fat since the rubber absorbs!
    I purchased this to replace the cheesy one that came with my Kitchen Aid 6qt mixer. (Yes, it fits perfectly.). The side scraper is invaluable when making cookie dough. It really helps everything get all put together. This is a nice upgrade and really good quality.
    Perfect for making cakes. I bought this attachment especially for that purpose and have not regretted it. I have several KitchenAid mixers and I will buy this attachment for all of them. Works perfectly.
    I absolutely love this attachment. It is a wonderful accessory for the Kitchenaid mixer. We use all the time. The rubber edge that scraps the side wall is awesome
    This is an awesome attachment for the Kitchenaid stand mixer. It incorporates the ingredients thoroughly. We enjoy this addition to our supply of attachments for the mixer
    These beaters are great to have for any kitchen aid plus helps with the sides and making sure everything is mixed very well would recommend
    The flex edge beater is super efficient! This is my favorite attachment for my mixer. It saves a lot of time.. no need to stop and scrape the edges of the bowl. Makes a wonderful, light buttercream.
    These are a life saver. We have 8 qt kitchen aid mixers in our kitchen and this is a must have for making cookies, cakes and frosting! Love love. Although... some of the 'paint' is falling off them now. i've only had them for a couple months.
    Great idea! I love this paddle because it scrapes the sides of the bowl for you! That saves time and energy for me. Durable and fits perfectly with my mixer.
    I did have a beater like this but it didn't have a scraper on the side like this. This is way easier to get the hater of the sides
    I absolutely love this KitchenAid KAFE7L Flex Edge Beater for Commercial Stand Mixers. Makes my job so much easier and cleaner...This tool allows for all the ingredients to be mixed properly as it scrapes the sides of the bowl perfectly. I am so happy with this purchase.
    I like this. It is convenient. However, it is not the same quality as the attachments that came with the mixer. I could see this lasting less than a year with regular commercial use, and 2-3 years with home use. The silicone edge is prone to breaking off.
    I really like the scraping paddles. They are metal which helps them get through the dough And not break! The only thing that I wish it had was scrapers on both sides because I did have a plastic one like that and it was amazing! However if this still gets the job done and is a great help and saves me time I'm scraping the sides of the bowl.
    I love this kitchen aid paddle so much more than the original one. The added blade makes it easier to scrape the sides of the bowl and not leave any flour stuck to it.
    Wanted to try this out so I wouldn't have to stop often to mix batter uniformly by hand, but I really didn't like it much. There was a weird scrapping noise against the bowl that I didn't like and it didn't incorporate ingredients at the bottom of bowl. Good construction, but I don't think this attachment fits the 8qt KitchenAid mixer (KSM8990ER) perfectly.
    If I could give this beater 10 stars I would, makes all the difference in the world when you don't have to stop to scrapedownt the bowl. I still stop and scarpe it down once manually but this beater has made it a lot easier and more efficent to mix doughs.
    This blade is the answer to all the scraping on bulkier doughs. Not that you will stop scrapping all the way as anyone knows you need to make sure. But this beater does an amazing job and cuts the scrapping in half saving time.
    When I learned about the KitchenAid Flex Edge Beater Blade, my reaction was, is this too good to be true? Negative reviews about paint chipping off the blade while in use indicated it just might be. Reviews were also mixed on whether the blade was too large or small for the bowl, or incompatible with the beater shaft. Too large and the blade would hit the sides of the bowl, potentially causing damage. Too small and the blade was ineffective. Although I’ve wanted this blade ever since finding out about it, I hesitated due to these concerns. When I added it to my wish list a few years ago, it was a higher price). Recently, seeing that Webstaurant Store had lowered the price, I took a chance and snagged one. Upon receiving it, I held my breath and started to make a double batch of sugar cookies. I am happy to report that (1) there were no paint flecks in my cookies; (2) the blade is compatible with the beater shaft; (3) it is just the right size for the bowl. The blade does not bang the bowl, yet scrapes the sides and the bottoms effectively. Except for the top of the blade itself, ZERO hand scraping was required (I was skeptical, but when I hand scraped the bottom of the bowl to check, it was quickly apparent that there was no need). I was happy to find out that it stores nicely in the bowl itself along with the included beater blade, whisk, and dough hook. I don’t know how long it will last for, but even if it only last a few years, it is certainly worth the small price to avoid having to stop the mixer and scrape bowls by hand. Make sure you buy the correct one for your mixer as there are at least 4 different ones (KAFE7L, KFEW6L KFE35T, KFE5T). This one works with my 7qt Proline Bowl Lift Mixer (KSM7586). (P.S. It took me awhile to realize this, but the model names/numbers are actually helpful, once you know how to read them. KA = KitchenAid; FE = Flex Edge; here, the number probably corresponds to quart capacity of the bowl; L would be for Bowl-Lift mixers, T would be for Tilt-Head mixers.) *I reserve 5-star ratings for truly amazing (and almost life-changing) products like this one. Well-deserved. Read Less Read More
    The flex edge on the beater blade really works well for scraping the edges of the bowl. I find that it works really well for frostings and cookie dough to incorporate butter that just wants to cling to the bowl edge. The added edge is a good time saver and comes in very handy.
    This a great tool.It is solidly built and fits perfectly in the bowl. No stopping to scrap the bowl. Saves time and effort, It is dishwasher safe.
    I ordered this flex edge beater because I was tired of stopping my mixer to scrape down the bowl. This makes life much easier for me. I love it.
    This flex edge beater makes mixing dough so much easier. We do not have to stop and turn off the mixer to scrape down the bowl.
    What a great tool! This attachment keeps the batter or cookie dough evenly distributed and off the bowl even with the largest of batters. Solid movement and made great just as all Kitchen Aid products.
    Love this paddle beater for my mixer. I have to do less scraping of my batter when mixing cakes and cookies. A must buy for avid bakers!
    This worked amazingly well! At first I thought it might be a gimmick, but for the first time ever I did not have to scrape the bottom of the bowl when making cake batter! I am always a big fan of having an extra paddle attachment for my mixers, but I think this one will now be the one I use regularly and the one that came with the mixer will be the extra.
    I love this flex edge beater. I plan on also purchasing one for my residential Kitchenaid mixer aswell, because it is not interchangeable between the two sizes.
    A must have when you own a stand mixer. Gets the job done very easily without the need to scrape the sides of the mixer bowl in between mixing the ingredients.

    I purchased this item and was excited to find a Flex Beater for a 7-qt Stand Mixer. Unfortunately, in my excitement, I did not check the model number. When it was delivered, I tried it out and it was not the right one. I promptly called to ask for an RMA number. I printed it out and found that there was a 30% restocking fee, not 20% as stated in the return policy. I had no need for the item, so I returned it. Shipping back and forth, I feel, was exorbitant but I knew that. It is the fact that the policy states one thing and the actuality was another. I will never again order from this company and will go to a store (and pay more for the luxury of being able to return without those added expenses). When I paid $39.00 for an item which came out to $50 with shipping and only receive $16.30 back, there is a problem. I paid for shipping on the front end and on the back end also. Doing the math....$39.00 for the item + $11.00 for shipping = $50.00 that was charged on my credit card. The refund that was stated was $16.30 which means that I was charged for shipping BOTH ways plus the 30% restocking fee! Read Less Read More
    Thank you for your review! We are sorry the restocking fee took you by surprise. We recommend fully reading our Return Policies before purchasing an item. Please keep in mind that there are two policies: one for commercial customers and one for residential customers.
    This Flex Edge Beater fits the 7qt Kitchen Aid ProLine Household model as well. Helps cut down the need to scrap your gown down by 80%. Easy to wash, and a Great Value at Webstaurant Store!
    I was jumping for joy using this beater, it does exactly as it says it's gonna do. I didn't use a spatula until I scraped the batter from the bowl. Then I simply plopped it in the dishwasher and it came out just perfect. I am now looking for replacement beaters for my other Kitchen Aid mixers. I am gonna get spoiled!!!!
    This is a great mixer. We had our older 6qt. model break on us and we replaced it with one of these. No complaints. The price of KitchenAid mixers are a little steep, but they are great quality.
    I love this paddle because it scrapes the bowl for you, but you do need the occasional scrape down for extra flour or such but i love it!
    Scrapes edge while it rotates, saves some time on the thicker products we mix rather then breaking down the mixer and scraping by hand. Good Value
    This paddle is great because it has the scraper on the side. It's good for when you have a smaller amount of product in your bowl because it really gets the side of the bowl well. I recommend this paddle.
    This is a great paddle for the seven quart mixer. It is definitely more efficient for the larger mixers so that you don't always need to stop and scrape down the sides of the bowl.
