Rated 2 out of 5 by Britt09 from Comes loose after awhile Like others on here my bowl started coming loose from the base. I'd like to know recommendations on which one to get for a replacement if anyone could tell me?

Rated 1 out of 5 by tommyd123 from Poor design, stay away from this one! Like most users on here, mine worked well for a while, but after about 6 uses making cookies, the bowl broke away from the locking plate (thick cookie dough, lowest speed setting). Obviously they've opted for a material that's too thin to handle the intended purpose, but haven't done anything to address it. Going to look for another option with better-made construction.

Rated 1 out of 5 by SteveCT from Under-engineered bowl attachment lugs This is the second Kitchen Aid mixer we have owned and the first lasted for ever but was too small so we upgraded to the 5 quart model a year ago. It worked well until my daughter took an interest in baking cookies - she was mixing a dough and the bowl started shaking wildly (it really jammed her hand). I assumed that she had not attached the bowl properly but I could not get it to stay in place either. I inspected the bowl and saw that two of the four lugs (or whatever they are called) that lock the bowl into its base had compressed and were no longer engaging properly with the base. My wife and daughter are not strong enough to have damaged the bowl, so I initially concluded that it must either be a defective bowl or the lugs were under engineered for their purpose. After going into the Kitchen Aid website and reading all the other similar accounts, I have to conclude the latter.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Frustrat-Ed from Bowl can't handle dough! Finally started using the mixer for making bread this year. The KSM150 mixer itself seems powerful enough to deal with kneading the dough, but not the bowl. The bowl got knocked around so much the first time, that it now does not fit in the base. I had to hold it down forcibly to keep it from destroying the mixer or the kitchen. Since I had to use both hands,. it was tough working the control settings while holding the bowl. Could not get it going past power setting #2 before the thing goes nuts. BTW, this bowl is made in India, while my older bowl (which is smaller (4.5qt) but looks better made) was made in Korea. Comparing the base indents on the base, the India version's are hard to see, and not stamped clearly, while the Korean one looks sharp. Definitely evidence of quality going downhill. Makes me hesitant of getting a replacement, but like the higher sides to keep the mess in.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Bob14me from Bowl Comes Loose We have used our mixer for over a year with no problems. Unfortunately we have encountered a problem when kneading dough. The bowl slips out of the grooves on the base. If the machine is at a medium or relatively high speed this creates a potentially dangerous situation. The grooves seem ok. In all other respects the mice does a great job (probably five stars). Please advise me as to how I can correct the problem. Thanks.

Rated 2 out of 5 by rmba from Frustrating When Kneading Dough I love using the KitchenAid stand mixers that my parents have, so was extremely excited to get one of my own. However, after only a few months of using the bowl that came with the mixer, it started to come loose when mixing thicker batters or kneading bread dough (my primary use case), even on the lowest setting. A couple of times, the bowl even came off its base in the middle of kneading, leading to panicked moments trying to get the machine turned off while the bowl was tilting wildly and then frustration as I had to knead my bread dough by hand. None of the bumps on the bottom of the bowl seem pushed in, nor do the ones on the base plate. I've checked the mixer head height and everything seems to be in order there. My only conclusion is that the bowl is poorly or improperly made.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Zami from Pathetic design Brought this to have some kitchen comfort. Looks like it takes away energy holding it down during operation. Base does not fit properly. Clearly a design flaw. Called customer care and they send the base plate which is of no use. They clearly know it is Bowl flaw but still they sent base plate. Cheap tricks. Very disappointing. Bought this knowing Kitchen aid is leader in Kitchen appliances turned out pathetic experience.

Rated 1 out of 5 by SallyV from Pay attention to reviews! Nope, does not stay in base when mixing. Kitchen Aid needs to make a bowl that actually works & stays in place when mixing! This is a bust- do not buy.
