Rated 1 out of 5 by spazmccoy Poorly designed product with no compatible add-ons
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mrs Betty Bowers Love this bowl!
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!

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

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rthelper1 The KitchenAid 5-qt. glass bowl is extra large for no spill out mixing.
I love the size of the 5-qt. glass bowl for whipping mashed potatoes with no mess clean up on the counter or stand.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Chap I love Kitchen Aid, but not this bowl!
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!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by grannys8 I love the fact the bowl is glass
I love the fact Kitchenaide gives you so many options with their mixer. I got this mixer and the glass bowl for my daughter and son-in-law for Christmas. I figure the other attachments for it ,they can get as they need them. Kitchenaide is such a great brand and J..C. Penneys is a store that stands behind the products they sell that I couldn't go wrong. I have never been dissatisfied with products or personnel either in the store or dealing with internet personnel. All I can say is I love the bowl, very nice weight to the glass and I love J.C.Penneys!!
