Tips for using Glass Bowl for KitchenAid Bowl-Lift Models

Bowl-Lift Glass Bowl Tips

  • The Glass Bowl is designed exclusively for use with the KV25, KP26, KSM652, and KSM758 KitchenAid bowl-lift Stand Mixers.
  • For complete information on using these Stand Mixers, please read the "Instructions" manual that came with your Stand Mixer.


Before Using 

  • Your Stand Mixer is individually adjusted at the factory for optimal performance.
  • When using the Glass Bowl, it may be necessary to readjust the beater-to-bowl clearance.
  • When correctly positioned, the handle and pour spout should not touch the pedestal of the Stand Mixer.
  • Please refer to the Stand Mixer "Instructions" for complete information on adjusting the beater-to-bowl clearance.

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 somewhat longer for yeast dough ingredients to come together in a glass bowl.

Refer to the below videos for Bowl Adjustment
