Bowl does not stay in base

Submitted by Nomix - 7/15/2019

I bout the stand mixer with this stainless steel bowl and it does not stay in the base when the mixer is on. It pops out very easily especially with heavier doughs. It's rendered the mixer functionality pretty much useless, and a little dangerous.

Bowl Does not Lock

Submitted by Darrell - 7/9/2019

I have had my Artisan mixer for about 3 years. I had this problem of the bowl not locking during the 3rd time I mixed bread dough. It has never locked for bread dough since. I can make cookie dough, or muffin mix, etc. Just not bread dough. I never have my speed beyond 2 for dough. The problem is the base of the bowl. It is a cheap product made in India. Better testing should be done prior to selling these products. I called and was offered a replacement for about $50. I am worried the same issue will happen again.

Black residue

Submitted by Grace2623 - 7/8/2019

I bought this in April, and the times that I've used it I get a black residue that comes off in whatever I'm mixing. And I clean it thoroughly between uses.

Unstable on KMS150 mixer

Submitted by SantaCruzTodd - 6/29/2019

I thought I had treated this bowl too roughly kneading dough, but from what I read here it's a common problem. The bowl no longer is secured to the base of the mixer.

Does not lock securely into mixer base

Submitted by S Paulson - 5/17/2019

The original bowl that came with my mixer several years ago ("MADE IN KOREA" engraved on the bottom) still works, but the second bowl I bought ("MADE IN INDIA" engraved on the bottom) will easily spin past the notches that are meant to hold the bowl. I use the original bowl for bread dough and everything else -- it has started to wobble a little, but still stays in the base. The second bowl I bought can only be used with thinner batters or frostings and even then I keep a hand on the bowl and the other hand on the speed selector, just in case. Trying to make cookie dough or bread dough will result in the bowl being knocked loose and flung around. HAZARDOUS to people and the machine itself. Disappointed (but not surprised) to see so many people experiencing the same issue. KitchenAid used to be better than this!

Must have a design flaw

Submitted by Taylor26 - 4/18/2019

I've had my KitchenAid for 2 years and the bowl no longer locks in place. It spins in a circle and renders my KitchenAid useless for actual baking. My ice cream attachment still locks in place, so the issue is with the bowl itself. My Mom has had her KitchenAid for over 10 years with no problems. Looks like the newer models have a series of issues, and this bowl is one of them; really disappointing. As someone who has a series of KitchenAid attachments (ice cream maker, spiralizer), I'm upset that after light use over two years the core product is failing.

Brand new 2 uses and the bowl rattles and moves

Submitted by BronxYanks - 4/8/2019

Purchased this kitchen aid about a month and a half ago. Used it twice to make cake frosting. After the first use, at a higher speed the bowl rocks, rattles and moves around like crazy! This is certainly not was I was expecting from a mixer so high in price. Very disappointed and should just return it! It seems to me with all the comments below, this is a common issue. Why not fix the problem or stop including these bowls with the mixer! Also, have tried using three different mixing attachments, including the scraper and nothing reaches the bottom of this bowl. There is always a big lumpy mess at the bottom you have to scrape the bowl yourself, mix some more, remove the bowl, hand scrape and so on. I think this defeats the purpose of having a mixer. I could have the same headaches with a much less expensive hand mixer!!!

Very disappointed

Submitted by Bread_lover - 3/22/2019

One of the main reasons why I bought a kitchen aid stand mixer was for kneading a dough. I have heard about the excellent quality of KitchenAid stand mixer and now I am very disappointed because of the mentioned issue before. After not even 2 years the plate doesn't hold the bowl anymore. The only way for using the stand mixer is to buy a new bowl. But it looks that is just a temporary solution and I am definitely not willing to buy a very expensive bowl every two years.

Bowl comes off base

Submitted by fcgomez - 2/18/2019

I agree with the other reviews here, and am extremely disappointed. After eyeing the kitchenaid mixer for years, I get this model and the bowl keeps flying off the base. I had taken to a kitchenaid authorized repair center since kitchenaid customer service said I am out of warranty. They too just replaced the base and now it still keeps flying off the base. I cannot knead dough in this mixer anymore. Based on the reviews here, replacing the bowl is probably not worth it either. Disappointed about this expensive purchase.

Not for heavy duty mixing

Submitted by Bette31 - 10/25/2018

I bought this bowl a while ago as a spare since I use my KitchenAid mixer so frequently. The weight is far less than my original bowl and when I try to mix cookie dough the bowl flies off the base. This has never happened with my original bowl. I bake a lot of cookies and bread and feel that this bowl cannot be used for these tasks. Very disappointed in KitchenAid.

Unlocking bowl

Submitted by DMF092609 - 8/26/2018

I'm so disappointed with my stand mixer and the bowl. I've had it for only 2 years and after 6 months in the bowl would rattle like crazy when in use. Only a few months later and the bowl does not stay out at all anymore. Since it no longer locks, I feel I have loss complete use of this very expensive purchase. It's important to note that I probably only use the mixer about 1x per month so for this to happen so quickly after so little wear makes me frustrated. I would not recommend this bowl or this mixer for those reasons.

Disappointing quality & horrible customer service

Submitted by NehaK - 6/1/2018

I bought the kitchen aid stand mixer and I barely used it for 2-3 months. The bowl doesn't lock properly and when it does the bowl unlocks and starts rattling around when making a dough. It is so disappointing because after spending so much money if I can't avail the benefit for more that 2-3 months then whats the point. I called customer service and instead of replacing the bowl they are ready to give 15% off on it. The customer service agent told me its a common issue. she also offered to replace the base plate which is definitely not the problem because now I can see the dents around the base of the bowl caused by unscrewing on its own. In return she kept on saying that base plate is cheaper for us to replace. It was just funny and pointless to explain because I had already repeated myself million times. Besides improving the quality, kitchen aid should also improve the customer service and should train the employees on how to retain the customers. I will also be posting this on social media.

Bowl Not Same Quality

Submitted by MaggieMom - 4/22/2018

I purchased this as an extra bowl and am not really feeling the normal KitchenAid quality. Feels very light, black residue on bowl at top and bottom seam rims, and does not feel like my older KitchenAid bowl. Quality is just not what I'd expect from KitchenAid. Will keep using my glass bowl and hope it never breaks.

Bowl won't lock

Submitted by Frisco - 4/11/2018

My stand mixer is about 2 years old and same problem. I don't use it often but the bowl will not stay locked so heavier dough or mixes cannot be made with this product. I am not really impressed.

Base eventually lets go

Submitted by MLTriton - 12/20/2017

Used for a couple years. As others have said, the threads on the bottom of these shiny stainless bowls weaken and the bowl starts coming out of the base, at which point you can do still do cake batter, but not cookie dough. The matte, brushed stainless bowls are tanks, mine is 20+ years, but they don't have a handle and are smaller.

Won't stay locked in place

Submitted by BriC - 12/19/2017

After only 2 months of use the clips on the bottom of the bowl have worn out. I can only mix very light things now, kneading bread is out of the question. This model bowl needs the bottom redesigned to have deeper indentations for the clips. I chose the metal bowl over glass for the durability and this bowl did not cut it. Needs replacing already.

Not Sturdy Enough

9/29/2017

This is the second bowl I used. The Mixing Bowl that came with my Artisan Stand Mixer started popping out of the stand within weeks. I called Kitchen Aid and they sent me this one as a replacement. It lasted about a year and now this one is popping out of the stand also. I do make a lot of breads but the bowl should be able to stand up to home baking use. When I looked at the bottom it appears that the Stop/Lock gage has only 2 sides to hold it in. I am thinking I should replace it with a ceramic or heavy duty glass bowl.
