The best attachment I have for my kitchen aid mixe

Pravazzolo 7/28/2019

I bought this a month ago it's for a tilt head mixer but did my research and it fits my lift stand mixer perfectly so happy with it.

Disappointed with this accessory

Girlnxtdore 7/22/2019

I'd hoped this piece would be great for ttempering chocolate. I've tried a couple of times now and haven't been successful. I'm really not sure if this is user error or not but after following the directions in booklet twice, I've had disappointing results. Definitely not worth what I paid. I d much prefer some of the other accessories available for my mixer if I had it to do over.

Mark23 3/17/2019

The smell while using this unit is unbearable. The idea is great. It is easy to operate but the smell does not let us use it. Even after several uses.

Works but smells awful

Shemily 3/1/2019

I love the idea and the product, but can't stand to use it because of the electric motor smell. It hasn't gone away and is bothersome enough to give headaches. My livelihood relies on income from baking and I was so hopeful but in the end disappointed.

Not real user friendly

Jody22 2/24/2019

I bought this before Christmas and was pleased, but I did find it hard to use. I followed the directions and it seemed like it just didn't want to work the way it was supposed to. I figured it was because I used it as a stand alone. This would be a great machine if it was a little more user friendly. I would still recommend this product with the hope that they listened and made some improvements. It might have been the chocolate I used too. I used the chocolate wafers from Winco bulk section.

Wandacooks 1/19/2019

I bought this after reading about it online. Wow!!! I proof bread in half the time as normal, make fondue , and use as precise temp and time slow cooker. I can't wait to innovate my recipes to use with this appliance....oh, yogurt too. This is a game changer as a stand alone unit or attached to your mixer to use with your dough hook and paddle.

Kitchen Aid 'Imprecise'

Kenneth 604 1/13/2019

Bought to temper chocolate and make gelato at 185F. First bowl smelt so bad it contaminated gelato with burnt chemical taste. returned first bowl to kitchenaid (Great customer service). Second bowl, went through extensive curing process running machine multiple times with water in bowl to burn off smell...smell has decreased, but remains present...have tested with homo milk after curing, burnt flavor still transfers to milk. Both bowls will not heat above 135F with lid (tested with infrared thermometer). Temperature not accurate even at low temperatures, unless left on for three hours. Is adequate for tempering chocolate, but only if using seed technique, but will not be accurate enough for classic tempering technique. Bowl retains heat for prolonged period, so cooling is also too slow for classic tempering technique.

TeresaT 1/1/2019

I purchased the Precise Heat Mixing Bowl from Sur La Table a few months ago. It works very well. I used it to make yogurt. I heated the milk to 200, then let it cool to 110. I added my starter and set the temp for 115 and let it sit overnight. Perfect results. Tempers chocolate too. I do with it had a high/low temp alarm.

Bread beginner 11/7/2018

I used it many times to proof bread. It works great; however, I found it is very difficult to remove the temperature base from the mixer. Does it have an easy way to remove it?

KMcK 6/7/2018

I have been cooking almost daily since my husband and I began eating a low carb diet, and I'm forever forgetting to soften the cream cheese. This is perfect for the majority of my dessert recipes (custard, butter pie, cheesecake). It's easy to use and clean, and it makes many recipes so much easier. Love it!

Biff 2/24/2018

Bought this for myself for Christmas, 2017. I wanted to temper chocolate and searched online for various methods. When I saw this KitchAid bowl - this was the best choice! Easy to use and no guessing as to temperature or timing. highly recommend it. I've made Christmas baking and now am making cream puffs with chocolate tops! Yum! Am now going to be experimenting with dough next. Can't wait.

Affordable chocolate tempering solution!

gettiy 1/30/2018

I am a Whirlpool Canada employee, but I purchased this bowl a month before I got my job and paid full price. I've been baking for decades, and have always wanted a chocolate tempering machine. However they're too expensive! Enter this attachment for another KitchenAid item I love, my stand mixer! The bowl is easy to use, and not only does it temper chocolate, but it also proofs my bread dough. I hate single use appliances so having a warming bowl that does multiple functions is highly satisfying, and doesn't take up extra space. So happy with my purchase, just bummed I didn't wait to buy it with my employee discount!

Design Flaw! ONLY BOTTOM OF BOWL IS WARM!

CocoCooks 12/1/2017

There are 2 major problems with the KitchenAid chocolate tempering machine. 1) The tempered chocolate only stays warm at the bottom of the bowl, so if you want to dip shortbread cookies or anything else in the chocolate, the chocolate becomes too thick and cool at the top for the cookies to pass through. I wish the sides of the bowl also stayed warm. There is a very small heating element at the bottom of the unit. The top 2/3 of the KitchenAid bowl is cool to to the touch and, thus, the top 2/3 of the chocolate mixture remains cool too at a the recommended 88 degree temper holding setting. 2) The KitchenAid recipe for tempering chocolate calls for starting with 22 ounces of chocolate in the heating bowl. My chocolate never fully melted, even after 1 hour and continuous stirring there were lots of lumps. I had to take the semi-melted chocolate out of the KitchenAid machine and warm the chocolate to the desired temperature on the stove. I really do not see the use for this machine. It is an expensive waste of time and and effort! For the price, it should stay warm on all sides of the work bowl! I would not recommend this product to anyone. After using it I was both tired and wanted to throw it against the wall!

Critters mom forever 11/19/2017

My husband bought this to make products with beeswax and it works very well to gradually melt the wax and mix in the other ingredients. Easy to use and cleans easily. A good investment for a small home business working with wax.

6/13/2017

I saved the catalog I saw this in and bought it 6 months or so later and happy I did! Great concept to have a warming bowl that attaches to the mixer or will stand alone. It is good for fondue and excellent for keeping chocolate warm to drizzle on cookies or candy dipping. Kitchenaid is fabulous!

I LOVE THIS HEATING BOWL!!

5/24/2017

I hesitated buying this bowl as I felt it was expensive. After using it, I feel it's worth every penny. I've only used it for yogurt, but I've used it consistently and frequently since I purchased it approximately one year ago. It's made it so easy!! I absolutely love it and would highly recommend it. I'm wondering if the slow heating mentioned by previous reviewers is partially due to not preheating the unit as mentioned in the instructions. As I recall, for yogurt, they recommend preheating and letting the milk reach room temperature before heating. I found this does make a difference in reaching the desired heating temperature. I feel being able to use the unit without attaching it to the mixer makes it much more versatile and user friendly for using it for multiple purposes. At first I would have liked the unit to be larger, however, after using it repeatedly for yogurt, I found it the perfect size to put a half gallon of milk and simply set the timer. I'm looking forward to experimenting with other things as making candy etc. I agree with the reviewer who mentioned the bowl locking system. It's a little hard to lock. Also, I feel the temperature alarm should be louder as it is very low. As with all new appliances, it takes a while to get use to, but once you understand how it works, it's very easy to operate.

Odor is awful, even after several uses

1/12/2017

After using it for about 7-8 times, the smell continue to be almos unbearable. It does the work, especially when you need to achieve textures that take a lot of work, like aligot for example. However, the smell even gives us headaches. Spreads around the entire house like if it was plastic burning. It's awful.

Great for Tempering Chocolate

12/29/2016

During the holidays I temper a lot of chocolate. I was impressed with this feature and was able to temper two pounds at a time. Both milk and dark chocolate tempered beautifully.I have not used this for anything else, but I am looking forward to making yogurt next.

Extremely handy tool to have around

12/27/2016

This thing is really fun to use. The first thing I made was some vanilla almond bark. I made the mistake of not chopping the white chocolate small enough, so it did take a while to melt completely. But once it did, it was very smooth and creamy, exactly the right texture you want for bark. I added in more white chocolate to temper (this time I chopped it up small) and the bark came out delicious and with that perfect snap. It's lasted more than a week now with no discoloration, which you usually get with untempered or incorrectly tempered chocolate. I'll be snacking on it a few more weeks for sure. I also made a bread dough and let it rise in the Precise Heat bowl. I absolutely love that this can be used as a standalone device, if you're making something that doesn't need mixing. The dough doubled in size like it was supposed to, and was baked into a delicious bread. I'm going to take credit for that one.

Precise Heat Mixing Bowl

12/4/2016

KitchenAid's Precise Heat Mixing Bowl is a great addition to the stand mixer. It allows precise control of temperature for a variety of applications, such as rising and kneading doughs of all kinds, yogurt making, fondues, and more. Temperature is accurate, but takes quite a long time before it is reached. The unit's user manual does not mention how to switch the temperature scale from Fahrenheit to Celsius. I called the KitchenAid's support about this, but was never called back with an answer. However, I easily figured it out since there are only 3 buttons. I would purchase this unit again, as it is a great complement to the stand mixer, and it can also be used standalone.

Hard to use

11/3/2016

Not sure it is usual, but the unit puts off an odor that smell like some industrial agent is burning; tis occurs when first used and later when thoroughly cleaned and tested. Also, there is lots of information about tempering chocolate, but non on cooking rice or simple vegetables. Cannot find this information when searching manuals. Thirdly, the buttons on control panel are confusing

Easy to Use

8/12/2016

This is a foolproof way to temper your chocolate. It does the job well but be patient as it does take time to heat the chocolate and cool it down. Give yourself some time as it's not a five minute process. There was no guesswork about the temperature, all I had to do is listen for the beeps and stir the chocolate. Make sure you chop your chocolate into small pieces and that will help speed the process up.

From a professional standpoint

3/18/2016

This product was something I looked at for months before I actually purchased. On the flip side I was hand tempering pounds at a time with mixed results and it was frustrating. I finally purchased this and after two runs which is hundreds of pieces and pounds of chocolate here is what I found. 1. It works 2. The process of melting even after chopping all the chocolate is a little shoddy in that half way through there are 3 or so brick style mounds of chocolate being stirred around and you fear for your mixers life however it works it out you just have to trust it. If it kills my mixer I will let you know. 3. The bowl could stand to be just a bit wider so two people can dip in it alternating removal of pieces making in a faster process. 4. If it holds up I would buy a second one and truly that's saying something. 5. The 10 hour hold is a fantastic feature it also works 6. The securing of the outer bowl to the inner one could be a little more easy or at least a click or signal when it's locked other than turning it the right way I feel like I am gonna over tighten it trying to secure it. Would just be a more comfortable knowing its there then guessing by lifting on it. I would hate for it to separate and bounce the machine on the counter. 7. Just for a reference I do love every other kitchen aid product I have bought in the past and we have three here but this opinion is unbiased as you can tell and I do a have a culinary degree from Johnson & Wales University so I hope you will trust me when I say definitely worth the price and will do the job. Just note the above points and be patient. *also it wouldn't let me rate all the different features below i.e. Quality,ease of use,etc
