I haven't really used this a whole lot since I purchased it... Actually, I put it on my stand mixer, with my smaller bowl and attachments inside. I twice took it out to use it as a mixing bowl, and to store soup in the fridge when I made a huge pot. But when I removed it from my mixer, the gray plastic "screwy" thing on the bottom, for locking it into your mixer stayed locked in to the mixer, not attached to the glass bowl, and took some creative maneuvering to dislodge it from the mixer base. Also, the lid is not a tight fit, which it says so right on the lid, but I thought it would be a tight fit when I bought it. I guess I just expected a bit better when paying $45 for a bowl.
***---UPATE---***: I forgot what I paid for this bowl! Holy moly! But since I'd forgotten, I have to admit, I use it at least as much as the bowl that came with the mixer. Sometimes, you just want the extra capacity, a handle and spout. I still feel now how I felt then about the lid though, kinda useless if it's not trustworthy, can't actually think of where my lid is at this moment, that's how much I use it. The problem of the gray part staying screwed to the mixer and not the bowl has happened to me twice since I got it.
