It's just too loose

Anna 9/17/2017

The shield simply doesn't fit properly on the bowl, too loose and is easy to fall from it. Love the mixer, but they should make an improvement to this shield...:(

KN1PS: The Pouring Shield and Its "Twin", KPS2CL - A Tweak

Suzanne Natafji 7/17/2017

"A Necessary Attachment that Works well when Tweaked" For my Artisan 5-bowl mixer, I initially bought the wrong model shield, KN1PS; it was too big, and I had to return it. The refurb models aren't listed, telling what model number of shield to buy, so I looked at shields that would fit any tilt-head'150' model. I read the reviews and finally bought one that fits better, the KPS2CL, on sale with a terrific savings from one seller, but this model could still use a tighter fit. Problems with shield fit could be alleviated if KitchenAid created a table, denoting all mixer models (refurbs included) that each shield fits (and keep this table updated as newer and other models are created). Alternately, KitchenAid could create a standard shield that flexes to fit all bowl sizes but with a 3-4" silicone band or something similar with stretch that hugs and adjusts the shield to securely clamp down onto the bowl in use. (Note that there is no pouring shield that fits my glass bowl, which has a very thick rim.) For my Pro 600 6-bowl lift mixer, I bought the correct-fitting pouring shield after having read many online reviews and discussions: the KN256PS, but like my Artisan shield, it did not fit tightly onto the bowl; it also just sat on top of it. In the short-term for both of my metal bowls (5 quart and 6 quart), I jerry-rigged this problem by cutting up a T-shirt and am using the bottom part of it as a band now (tightened and then clipped with a clothes pin around the shield) to hold it snugly in place until I can find something that looks more professional and aesthetically pleasing. However, this works, so I would advise that buyers keep their pouring shields.

Was so excited for this

Rachel 7/14/2017

I bought this as a separate as it advertised it fits 4.5-5 quart bowls. But, it does not fit ALL 4.5-5 quart bowls. I bought the kitchenaid mixer with the glass bowl as it was on sale. So, this is partly my own ignorance in purchasing the pour shiled for this bowl, but I do wish this fit. I think it would be a great thing to have.

Doesn't guard any splatter

Sam 6/24/2017

I have tried this splatter guard several times and it just doesn't work! Low speed on this mixer isn't low enough, and it causes the dry ingredients to poof everywhere. Well this reduces it a "little bit", but the flour gets between this shield and the bowl. Kitchenaid: WE ARE BEGGING YOU TO MAKE ONE THAT SEALS TO THE BOWL! Have your Developers base the design off the bowl lids. I would seriously give this zero stars if I could.

Does not fit

N/A 5/28/2017

Bought the Orange mixer because that's the one my wife has wanted for years now and I finally was able to save up enough money to buy it for her. She was so excited about it when it arrived, and it came with this pouring shield but couldn't figure out how to attach it to the bowl. After further inspection I found out that this shield does not fit the bowl at all, hopefully if you purchase the shield separately it might fit, but in my opinion you should just save your money. Other than this issue the mixer has made my wife very happy.

Disappointed with the Pouring Shield

Saranya 4/11/2017

Bought myself an Artisan mixer a month ago along with the Pouring Shield. Very disappointed with the Shield. It wobbles, doesn't sit firmly and falls off at the lightest touch, even while pouring in ingredients. Cannot believe the manufacturers sell this and think it's an acceptable accessory for such a fabulous mixer.

I see no earthly reason to bother with this splash guard. As stated by everyone else, it doesn't stay on and lightly sits atop the bowl - everything still splashes or blows out. Isn't there something better than this for a fabulous K.A. Stand Mixer? I have KSM88PSC in beautiful cherry red......

Why Bother

Suzie K. 2/14/2017

I'm not sure why Kitchen-Aid even bothers making this anymore. It is an absolute failure in what it is supposed to do. It doesn't fit on the bowl right, and it comes off with the slightest touch. If you try to pour flour down the chute, you have to hold the other side, so it doesn't come off. All they would have to do is redesign it to fit snugly, or better yet, snap on. How difficult is that. To anyone looking to purchase this piece, don't waste your money. I LOVE my mixer, but not this piece.

Flimsy and not worth the money

Riverf01 2/4/2017

If I could rate this "0", I would. Purchased for my KSM95 thinking that it would help keep my kitchen tidier and allow me to bake faster. There is no chance of that happening because it does not snap in place as expected and is uneven or warped. If I hold it in place, it would stay but who can do that while running a busy kitchen? As soon as you stop holding it in place or accidentally move or bump it, one side lifts off of the mixer. Please read this review and save yourself both disappointment and the hassle of having to return this to the merchant. I'm very disappointed. I paid so much for this mixer; it would be nice if the bowl were deeper or the pouring shield actually fit to keep ingredients from flying around the kitchen like pixie dust.

Difficult to Use

Cookiemaker 1/31/2017

I bought the pour shield before Christmas hoping that it would be helpful for my holiday baking. When it arrived, I looked for helpful directions as to how to attach the shield to the mixing bowl. There were none. There was a picture on the box of what it is supposed to look like, and that was all. When I attached the pour shield to the bowl it did not stay in place. It flew off the bowl and left me with a mess. I wish I hadn't bought it. It seems like a waste of good money.

Alli 1/15/2017

Terrible design! It doesn't fit securely to the bowl and even when it is "in place", the pour spout is extremely small and doesn't butt up to the bowl so you are STILL getting flour everywhere, even though you can only add the tiniest quantity at one time. Plus, the slightest bump or jiggle (like, say, when a mixer is MIXING) the stupid thing literally falls off!!! I am extremely disappointed in this accessory.

Poor quality and worse design

Kraychav 12/26/2016

Like many of my fellow reviewers, I came to this site to look for instructions on how to attach the pouring shield for my daughter's new 5-quart Artisan. As I began to read the reviews, I quickly realized that the problem was not her inability to attach the shield but the shield itself. It astounds me that a supposedly high-quality appliance would have such an obviously cheap and poorly designed accessory. This mixer was a Christmas gift for my daughter. She couldn't wait to use it; and five minutes after setting it up, she realized the shield is junk. I hope this is not an omen.

Bought this to fit my new KSM95 stand mixer. It doesn't fit. It is loose, falls off if you bump it, and has a huge opening facing the mixer, which just allows stuff to fly around. Biggest issue though is the lack of fit. You have to carefully push and pull until it's balanced precariously on the rim. The first time anything moves, it falls.

Unusable product

RAM23 12/14/2016

I recently purchased my first Kitchenaid stand mixer--an Artisan model. The fit and finish of the mixer and the various attachments is pretty good--with the exception of this pouring shield. The design does not fit the mixing bowl that well, and does not secure itself to the bowl in any way. The poor design combined with the off-center weight distribution means it half falls into the bowl if you look at it wrong. Thankfully I discovered this before ever trying to use it with the mixer running. I thought maybe the wrong size was included, but no--after reading the reviews here it's clear that it is simply a poorly designed product. If you do not have this pouring shield yet, please save your money and DO NOT buy it.

Very Disapointing Accessory

Mary 11/23/2016

I was so excited to move up from my 25 year old 4.5qt Kitchen Aid mixer to my new 6qt, beautiful red! It's the day before Thanksgiving and I'm using it for the first time. Probably my first mistake. It's a bit clumsy to use, but I'm sure that I can overcome. My problem is with the pouring shield! IT DOES NOT WORK! It has little tabs that seem like they should snap on to the rim but it does not stay in place. The shield pops right off and falls off the bowl. I chatted live on the KitchenAid website, only to be told it's not intended to snap on the rim. It just sits there. Well it does not just sit there, it falls off. It's a piece of junk. So disappointed. :(

Needs Major Re-design

Sistafatti 11/1/2016

After reading the one star reviews on this pouring shield, I contacted KitchenAid customer service expressing desire to purchase a pouring shield but I had reservations due to the poor reviews. I was told and I quote, "I would like to reassure you if there were any issues with out products that were out of the 'norm' our engineering team would be addressing the issue." The representative also said, "Many of the reviews do not indicated how the pouring shield was stored, or if it was dropped accidentally." Perhaps the key phrase here is "out of the norm." This shield slides around the rim of the metal bowl and does not fit tightly. I had the speed setting on #3 while placing flour in a cookie batter so it was at a slow speed. I used a heaping tablespoon of flour when placing it in the batter and it not only threw flour out of the pouring shield opening but also threw it between the top of the bowl and the bottom of the pouring shield. I used a tablespoon so I could place small amounts of flour (five cups total) hoping it would mix in before I placed another tablespoon of flour. Perhaps KitchenAid engineers don't consider throwing flour all over the kitchen counter 'out of the norm." I would not waste your money on this pouring shield.

Terrible Fit

Kathy 10/11/2016

I love my mixer, but the pour shield is TERRIBLE! I've had 2 replacements sent to me-all of which DO NOT stay on or work. It falls off when mixer is running (or not running) causing flour and other ingredients to fly all over the place. I hope that with all of these low reviews that the company would look into redesigning this pour shield soon and send all registered customers with a new one. I would give this pour shield less that one star if I could so only giving it one because I have to. I had a Kitchenaid mixer for 35 years prior to replacing with this new one-that pour shield was EXCELLENT!! Make it like that again.

Very Thin.

Iris 10/9/2016

Brought this from a a local store thinking it will help with all the splattering. I am very disappointed with it. It's very thin I am afraid of washing it, thinking it might crack. It is suppose to fit 4.5 to 5 qt bowls...it fits but there are gaps that make whatever is in the bowl still splatter out even on low speed...didn't even expect to have such a big gap in the back of the shield. If it's a shield shouldn't it be all closed in? I already used it, don't think I would be able to return it. I don't even want to rate this, but it won't let me summit without rating it.
