  • I love the cover but I have a tiny suggestion that you might like. When I made my cover I put a pocket on it and stitched down the center which made it 2 pockets that I use for the paddle attachment that came with it and I bought a different paddle attachment with one side that has a silicone scraper. That way the bulky attachments (dough hook and whisk) can bet in the bowl under the cover.
