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!

I love my KA and always wanted to have the glass bowl. After saving some money, i went and splurged on one. It was great! The measurements are somewhat accurate, and the bowl is heavy. I treated with such good care and I always hand washed it. Then this morning my 6yo was helping me making banana bread. He had smashed the bananas on a regular plate and his job was to add the bananas to the bowl. The playe slipped from his hands and fell into the bowl, which caused to break it!! I was expecting the PLATE to break, not the heavy, solid glass bowl. I was very disappointed with the quality because I have some Pyrex bowls that went through way worse beatings and are still standing strong. So I guess this bowl is more for decorative purpose rather than regular uses. I am so upset specially because of the steep price I have paid for it.
Also, i have to agree with the previous review that stated that the cover guard doesn't fit the bowl, so there is always going to be flour "splashed" all over the counter.

Chipped at top and cracked all the way down vertically

By Full time Mom

from Republic, MO

Comments about KitchenAid K5GB 5 Qt. Glass Bowl for 5 Qt. Tilt Head Stand Mixer:

Have been using this for several years with no issues and just last week I saw a small chip on top of the bowl. Looking closer, there is a now a split from the chip all the way down to the bottom. I can move the split glass with my hands, luckily it has not shattered yet like some of these other people. I am afraid of using it now.

Broke in my hands!

By GeekyHostess

from Seattle, WA

Comments about KitchenAid K5GB 5 Qt. Glass Bowl for 5 Qt. Tilt Head Stand Mixer:

I've had this glass bowl for years, and loved it and received so many compliments on it. However, yesterday, I picked it up, and it shattered in my hand! There was no amount of force on it, and it didn't touch anything else, it just broke in multiple pieces. I'm not looking forward to paying such a high price to replace something that broke when not even in use!

3 cleaning and the bottom broke off... Disappointed!

By Ravo

from Grand Rapids, Mi

Comments about KitchenAid K5GB 5 Qt. Glass Bowl for 5 Qt. Tilt Head Stand Mixer:

I got this bowl for Christmas 2014. It stayed in storage for awhile because I used the other bowl that came with my mixer. When I finally took it out after about 10 months to 1 year and the third time I ever used it I went to clean it and the bottom broke out of it. For the price of the product you would think you could get more use out of it. I'm just super disappointed because I thought I took good care of it! Not to mention the plastics threaded thing constantly fell off!

Broke After 2 Uses

By Rich

from Boston, MA

Comments about KitchenAid K5GB 5 Qt. Glass Bowl for 5 Qt. Tilt Head Stand Mixer:

I purchased this bowl a few weeks ago to replace the metal bowl that came with my unit. Unfortunately, the second time I attempted to plug the bowl in to the base, the entire bottom fitting shattered! Not the quality I expected from KitchenAid.

Frustrated

By MLS

from Haymarket, VA

Comments about KitchenAid K5GB 5 Qt. Glass Bowl for 5 Qt. Tilt Head Stand Mixer:

Waited a literal lifetime to get my kitchenaid stand mixer. Beyond excited. Came with stunning glass bowl with lid. Then I went to use it. Flour everywhere!! I said: "No problem, I'll just buy a splatter shield". Come to find out, most unfortunately, there is none to fit the bowl. Very tiresome as well as frustrating and truly disappointed. Seems as though I'd have to buy an additional bowl just to be able to then buy a splatter shield to fit said bowl. This makes no sense. One more thing; getting the bowl to sit right in order for it to lock in place should not be as difficult as it is.

Comments about KitchenAid K5GB 5 Qt. Glass Bowl for 5 Qt. Tilt Head Stand Mixer:

I was so excited to get this bowl as a gift but the excitement lasted a very quick hour! Ready to bake Santa's cookies with my nieces and nephew and BAM it shatters glass all over counter! With Santa's cookie mix!
What kind of product is this and after reading this reviews evidently that is the norm?????

Great Design/Poor Functionality

By Joan

from Michigan

Comments about KitchenAid K5GB 5 Qt. Glass Bowl for 5 Qt. Tilt Head Stand Mixer:

I love the look of this bowl! I like to keep my Kitchen Aid on the counter as I love the design but it looks unfinished without a bowl attached. The clear bowl "lightens" up the cramped space in my kitchen. The bowl however never quite sets right in the base - it is very hard to get it to set down and lock which I had accepted as part of the design. Today however, I lifted it after cleaning and barely touched a mixing bowl next too it (expecting the mixing bowl to break) but a large chipped hole came cleanly out of the side of the bowl where it touched. I don't see how this happens....its a clean break, round hole! And the bowls are so expensive, I can't afford a new one....I'll be a dying it to the holiday recycling!

Comments about KitchenAid K5GB 5 Qt. Glass Bowl for 5 Qt. Tilt Head Stand Mixer:

I got this as a gift not long ago and while I was mixing frosting, it just broke and glass went everywhere. I can't believe this happened, I loved my bowl. I don't understand how it broke.

My glass bowl shattered!

By Mae

from Beaverton, OR.

Comments about KitchenAid K5GB 5 Qt. Glass Bowl for 5 Qt. Tilt Head Stand Mixer:

I love this bowl with all that I am as a baker, and as I was mixing up some cream cheese frosting for some cinnamon rolls I had just made, the bowl shattered along the rim and splintered and cracked all the way through to the base of the bowl. I am SO sad!! This bowl was my favorite part of baking because I could see what I was mixing. I would buy it again if I could afford it, but I was NOT expecting it to break!! Is there anything that can be done? A warranty?
