How to Adjust Beater to Reach Ingredients in the Bottom of Bowl in a KitchenAid Stand Mixer
Have you tried lowering the beater on your mixer?
- If the beater is too high, it cannot reach and incorporate the ingredients.
- If the beater is too low, it can hit the bottom of the bowl and the white coating can chip off the bottom of your beater.
- The clearance is adjusted at the factory, but can change over time with use, and can easily be raised or lowered.

NOTE: The adjustment screw for tilt head mixers is the same, but for bowl lift models, for some models manufactured after April of 2003, the adjustment screw must be rotated in the opposite direction. If a consumer tries to turn clockwise, and that does not help, have them try the opposite direction.
NOTE: The "Dime Test" works for stainless bowls only, not glass or ceramic. Due to the nature of glass manufacturing, the clearance will be slightly different, and adjustments should be made without the dime until satisfied with mixing performance. It may take slightly longer for yeast dough ingredients to come together in a glass bowl.
