KN256PS: The Pouring Shield with a Necessary 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.

Pouring Shield

Rob 2/17/2017

I have used the pouring shield a few times and it worked great for me with the wet mixes but with straight dry ingredients, it's exactly like people have said. I modified mine a bit to help this but then I have my own shop I can do this in. If they don't have a redesign for the pouring shield you may want to try some modifications to make it work better for what you're using it for. The 3 star rating is basically because it works for me one way but not the other. So sort of a neutral rating.

Good for those extra messy mixes.

TW 1/19/2017

This item is good for those extra messy mixes that have lots of dry ingredients that have to be added or for really liquid mixes that tend to make a splash. Some say this item needs to be more closed and allows too much to escape unlike a previous model. I haven't used the other version but would say that if there is to be a really wide chute then maybe the back can be closed up a little more. There are two areas where material can fly out of the bowl. However, I think it is much nicer than to have nothing at all. Some say that this item doesn't fit the bowl or it falls off of the bowl when the mixer is working. I found that it fit my bowl nicely. There are tabs that go on the outside of the bowl. If you fit two tabs on the outside of the bowl and find that there is one on the inside all you have to do is slightly and gently open the shield to fit the other tab on the outside. This allows the shield to gently hug the outside of the bowl. Voilą! Yes it would be nice to have the shield almost go all the way around except for the chute but I am happy with this item. I have purchased two so far. I do think the price could be improved on since the shield does have such big opening and is so easy to break. I'm sure I'll be buying more. If this is redesigned have a wide chute is great but the wide opening in the back is not. Perhaps they could be combined somehow or the opening in the back narrowed.

Terrible design. Doesn't work very well

jfoll 12/25/2016

I got the 5qt tilt-head stand mixer a couple years ago for Christmas and was so excited it came with the pouring/splatter shield. Unfortunately, I was sorely disappointed when the shield did nothing to keep the dry ingredients from flying out of the bowl and all over my counter and floor! I have since got the Blass bowl (which i love) and attempted to try the shield again - what was I thinking?! Flour was everywhere! The pour spout is also was too small to pour anything like sugar or flour where partials can go flying. Very poor design. They need to recreate this cover so that it not only stays securely on the bowl (both glass and metal), but close off the openings so dry ingredients don't have a chancestors of fly out of the bowl.

Doesn't stay on. Poorly designed

cplummer 12/15/2016

I was so excited this came with the stand mixer I bought the other day... then I tried using it. It doesn't even stay on. You have to make sure it lines up correctly and even then it won't stay on. It's completely useless. I should have saved myself $70 and got the cheaper model that didn't come with this.

disappointed

cookie time! 12/10/2016

My husband bought me the Artisian stand mixer a couple of months ago, I thought it was weird that it did not come with a pouring shield, so i bought it separately and what a disappointment. It doesn't close /fit tight around the bowl and the gap allows flour to spray out onto the surrounding area. I threw out the packaging, or i would return it. I love the mixer, it was an upgrade from a competing stand mixer,and it is far better. I just wish the shield worked.

Happy Baker 11/27/2016

I received this shield with my new 5 qt. mixer. It arrived warped & would not fit properly on the bowl. When I tried to use it flour was flying all over the kitchen counter. After reading some of the other reviews I agree it is a poor design. Would like to return it for replacement since it did arrive damaged.

POPS off and the opening lets flour out everywhere. The Old one was closed ALL the WAY AROUND and WORKED GREAT!! Go back and change before you lose your reputation!

WORST PRODUCT EVER

EileenCh 3/16/2016

I can't believe kitchenaid still sells this product considering their reviews. Trust me, these reviews are very accurate. The lid does not fit the bowl securely. It will pop off at the slight touch or even shake of the bowl. I poured flour into the spout and my measuring cup touched-just slightly touched-the shield and this made it pop off. It has this terrible design that only part of the bowl is covered so flour will still fly everywhere. I would challenge Kitchenaid to take this product home and use it yourself. Its impossible! Even with the machine off, any movement in the surrounding area will trigger the lid to pop off the bowl and hang there. So disappointed in you Kitchenaid.

Does NOT work, Shield will not stay on steel bowl

Kelly 3/13/2016

I bought this last weekend after having the salesman assure me it would fit my newly bought Kitchen Aid Mixer with the 4.5 quart stainless still bowl. Well, I bought home to make an Home Made Pound Cake & lets just it was much worse trying to make with the Pouring Shield. My excitment quicky turned to disappointment. I am so very disappointed, more than words can even express. I Love my Kitchen Aid Mixer, was just trying to make mixing easier on me, to keep it from slinging it out onto my counter, I thought this was my magic fix...but it was very far from it!!!

This shield fits my mixing bowl and really helps!

L squared 3/1/2016

This wide chute fits my 5 quart Artisan tilt-head mixing bowl and really helps with adding ingredients and minimizing splattering. It's not a snap-fit, but it rests on and sort of "hugs" the top of the bowl. Where the "U" is in the shield, I still get some ingredients up on my mixer, but it's way better than no shield at all! Again, I'm using it with my stainless steel bowl that came with my 5 quart Artisan tilt-head mixer. It will not fit on my glass bowl.

Huge Disappointment

Gash01 1/1/2016

Received the 1 Piece Pouring shield for Christmas and it did not fit. It was way to large. Took the item back and exchanged it for another KitchenAid KN1PS. It's supposed to fit 4.5 and 5 qt tilt head and lift bowl models. It would not fit the 5qt stainless bowl on my Professional HD due to being to large. Due to this being the one most used attachments available for these stand mixers you would think KitchenAid would get it right. Huge disappointment. This makes me wonder about the other accessories I was planning on purchasing.

I was hoping the shield would help keep the dry ingredients from mixing out of the bowl so I tried it and it would not stay attached to the bowl.

A Shoot that should be called Shot!

Mary R 10/18/2015

I LOVE MY KSM159PSOB, but I have a problem with the pouring shield. It's loose & pops off; sometimes in bowl when mixing & fear of something breaking. Should be made in full circle, with no gaps or spaces under shoot part where powdery ingredients puff out. Design does need reviewing, but pour shoot could be fan-shaped with round ends (not boxy). I still use my grandmother's old Sunbeam Mixmaster for light easy jobs, but there is nothing that can compare to this machine...I LOVE IT! I am learning to create gluten-free, healthier sugar alternatives, dairy-free, but I use eggs! Being retired, this machine has helped me get back to what I loved, but had little time for - BAKING! I bought extra- different sized bowls to use for different jobs, but if I had the money, I'd buy me a second KSM150PSOB 5Qt.

I bake cakes quite a bit and having to make my own icing powdered sugar goes everywhere. This pouring shield does not work. They need to make one that covers the whole bowl somehow to keep things like powdered sugar in the bowl. I was hoping the lids were made for that but their not.
