Compatible Bowls and Accessories

Compatible Bowls and Accessories

Here are lists of compatible bowls and accessories (beater/dough hook/whip), grouped by model type. Model number designations refer to the label underneath the base of the mixer. These lists are formatted as tables; the left column is the item number, which you can use for a web search.

K45-type Tilt Heads and Accolade

This list is for the original K45 and K45SS and includes all models of the same geometry. This includes any model branded “Classic”, “Ultra Power”, or “Artisan” (KSM150/180/etc) well as the Accolade 400.

K45SBWHBowl, 4.5qt stainless, flat handle (Note: does not fit Accolade 400)
K5THSBPBowl, 5qt stainless, comfort handle (Note: does not fit Accolade 400)
KN15PBEHBowl, 5qt stainless, Accolade 400 only (discontinued; no longer available)

KICA0WHIce cream maker (discontinued version; adapter required for Accolade 400, service part number 9707760)
KSMICMIce cream maker (current version; does not fit Accolade 400)

All of these items are dishwasher safe, except for the K45WW wire whip. Hand washing will prolong the service life of the coated beaters and dough hooks.

Warning: do not use a spiral dough hook with any tilt-head model. Spiral hooks apply enormous upward force under heavy load, and the mixer’s hinge and tilt lock are not designed for these loads.

K5-Type Bowl-lift and “Professional HD”

This list is for the original K5-A, K5SS, and includes all models of the same geometry. This includes the KSM5, KSM50, KSM450, KSM500, K4SS, KSMC50S, and KG25-type models.

K5ABFlat Beater, K5A/K4SS/K5SS/KSM5/KSM50/KSM450/KSM500/KG25H
K5ADHDough hook, C-shaped, K5A/K4SS/K5SS/KSM5/KSM50/KSM450/KSM500/KG25H

KN25PBHBowl, 5qt, polished, KG25H only (service part number WPW10716820)
KICA0WHIce cream maker (discontinued version, but may still be available from some sources)

All of these items are dishwasher safe, except for the K5AWW wire whip. Hand washing will prolong the service life of the coated beaters and dough hooks.

Caution: frequent and prolonged use of the spiral dough hook for kneading can eventually cause the beater shaft bearing to migrate up into the planetary over time. When this happens, the top of the beater shaft will start grinding against the underside of the lower housing and cause damage. Visually inspect the beater shaft bearing on the bottom of the planetary before each use, and if it has receded into the planetary, discontinue use of the mixer until you have replaced the planetary.
