How to Use Sifter + Scale Attachment

Using the KitchenAid Sifter+Scale Attachment

The Sifter+Scale attachment is compatible with all household KitchenAid® Stand Mixers, including all accessory stainless steel, glass, and ceramic bowls. It is not compatible with the Precise Heat Mixing Bowl, Ice Cream Maker, or the Pouring Shield.

The Sifter+Scale attachment can be used in multiple ways: to weigh and sift ingredients while slowly feeding them into the mixer bowl or into a separate container, to weigh and feed ingredients without sifting, and to weigh ingredients on your countertop.

To weigh, sift, and slowly feed ingredients into the mixer bowl or separate container.

Use the complete attachment for recipes calling for ingredients to be sifted and fed slowly into the mixer bowl or a separate container.


To weigh and feed ingredients into bowl without sifting.

Use the attachment without the sifter when weighing and feeding larger ingredients, such as whole oats, that do not need to be sifted. You can limit the flow by using the ingredient valve to add those ingredients slowly.


To use as a countertop scale.

Set the scale on your countertop or table and place the lid/scale plate on top.
