The mixer is 6 months old, Christmas gift, and this is the first time we used the wire whisk. All we did is use it to make whip cream. The connector of the whisk, where it connecters to the mixer, has a lot of black residue and it has a crack in it right along the top rim. Would love to start using it more often but worried that it will end up in pieces in the bowl while being used. Is there going to be a better model of this whisk coming out soon?

Wire Whip made of aluminum and stainless steel will corrode

By 

from Seattle, WA

Comments about KitchenAid Wire Whip:

The wire whip that came with my beautiful new tilt head grape colored mixer is made of an aluminum body with stainless steel wires. Haven't your engineers every heard of galvanic corrosion? The aluminum will oxidize if you put this in contact with any conductive solution: Lemon juice, dishwasher soap, dish washing detergent, vinegar. Bad engineering! The oxidation forms an icky black powder that covers everything and gets in the food in the mixer if it gets wet. Eventually the wires will come out of the body as the corrosion continues. I tried coating mine with clear nail polish, but then it wouldn't fit on the head anymore. Make it all stainless.

Black residue everywhere - a mess!

By 

from Mt. Pleasant, SC

Comments about KitchenAid Wire Whip:

The top portion of my wire whisk has just left black residue all over my hands, in my frosting and on my towel.
It's a mess. Evidently someone (guest, babysitter) put my whisk into the dishwasher unbeknownst to me.
I cannot tell you how annoyed I am. I have used a kitchenaid stand mixer for years - my mother's (purchased probably 35-40 years ago) has never had this problem and her whisk has always been dishwasher friendly. Why in the world in this day and age any company would manufacture a product that could not be put in the dishwasher is beyond me. Other stand mixers that I know of do not have this issue. This should certainly have been stainless steel or some other non-oxidizing metal. Is there an alternate whisk available that I can use that doesn't have this issue? In looking at the reviews for this piece, I see that I am far from the only person who had a problem.

Black gunk, possibly very dangerous

By 

from Washington DC

Comments about KitchenAid Wire Whip:

The black gunk that comes off the hub of this attachment drips into the mixture if it gets wet. Can't figure out what it is, not rust or anything else clearly harmless. Given that the KitchenAid attachments are made oversea there's some real concern as to what this is leaching out of the metal. Black substance appears whether you hand or machine wash. Have bought 2 to confirm

Wire Whip Attachment Leaves a lot to be desired

By 

from New York, NY

Comments about KitchenAid Wire Whip:

I am with ALL of the others who have had issues with this attachment. I can see that the breaking prongs is an issue for a lot of people and I HAVE sent an email to Corporate with my discontent about this accessory. I'm on my 4th replacement of this part and the cost has doubled since the first replacement. Very disappointed in this part and when I go to purchase a new mixer in another year, I'll go with another manufacturer and possibly just spend more on a commercial version as I'm adding to my cost every 6 months with this mixer anyway. Wake up KitchenAid...your customers are not happy.

Black Residue

By 

from NY

Comments about KitchenAid Wire Whip:

I am on this website for the same reason as all the other commenters. I put my wisk into the machine and it turned black and started rubbing off a thick black residue. I figured it was a reaction to the detergent and my fault for not hand-washing it. So, I tossed it and came here to buy a new one. But, now I see that everyone has the same problem regardless of how they wash it. What am I supposed to do now?

Residue from beater

By 

from Pa

Comments about KitchenAid Wire Whip:

This beater is very dangerous in my eyes!!!
No beater should not be able to withstand a disheasher. Even hand washing only it has a major problem. This metal substance drips
Into to food while the mixer is spinning.
It looks like aluminum but could be lead... this is a poison in my book. I have been working
In a hospital kitchen for many years and never experienced anything so disgusting like this beater I have at home. I have my mixer for 35 years and my original beater snapped... but the metal on it was fine.. no metal issues existed with my old beater.
This is a cheap move that kitchen aid made.
I am about ready for a new mixer but if this
Is what I will get fir $300... it wont be a kitchen aid I will be buying.

broken wire

By 

from Dallas, Tx

Comments about KitchenAid Wire Whip:

I don't know what is the lifespan of this whisk attachment. I have had it for a couple of years now, but just now, the wire on the whisk just snapped off. two of them to be exact. It also rubbed off some kind of black substace. I am looking for a replacement but seeing the reviews, i am honestly discouraged.

Review feedback

By 

from PA

Comments about KitchenAid Wire Whip:

Same issue with the residue, but it would be SO MUCH MORE HELPFUL if corporate feedback would reply with more than just a thanks and please email us. This does absolutely nothing to help the rest of us who have the same issue, are considering buying, asking about a newer model/improved model, etc.

not sure this is safe...

By 

from Albertville, AL

Comments about KitchenAid Wire Whip:

I have had my mixer for a while and LOVE it. However, I have had to stop using it with this attachment, and I used this attachment for so many things. The silver plating has worn off (and I have only ever hand washed it). If the connecting piece touches anything, a dark gray/black charcoal looking residue rubs off onto it. This can't be good!
