I have owned my KitchenAid stand-lift mixer since the early 80's, that's just about 30 years, and I love it! It included 3 beaters, the flat coated beater, the dough hook and the balloon whip. About 10 years ago the flat beater's vinyl coating began to crack but I didn't know how or where to get a replacement. Now I know how and where, but I would love to be able to get one that is stainless rather than the vinyl coat.

The beater works fine but I am getting ready to replace my 3rd one because the coating cracks and starts peeling off. Granted I've had the mixer about 13 years, but I would expect the beaters to last as long as the mixer. I'm getting the burnished one this time.

Painted beater

By 

from Kilgore ,TX

Comments about KitchenAid Stand Mixer Flat Beater:

I love my kitchen aid mixer but the problem with the painted beater is on going. I have replaced it twice and now i have to replace it again. The paint chipping off needs to be addressed by Kitchen Aid for this mixer.

replacement beater

By 

from Vicksburg, MS

Comments about KitchenAid Stand Mixer Flat Beater:

This is my 4th replacement blade for this Kitchen Aid mixer, I am so frustrated!!! I have not washed it in the dishwasher, I have the bowl set at the lowest point available, and the coating still came off the bottom of the blade and now I am AGAIN having issues with my frosting and cake batter turning gray on the bottom of the bowl. I also own a Kitchen Aid tilt head mixer and still have the original blade that came with it, no problem with the coating on it. I have four mixer blades that are now useless to me, what is wrong with your design???

Chipping

By 

from Blackwood, NJ

Comments about KitchenAid Stand Mixer Flat Beater:

I am on my third coated flat beater. Every one has chipped. I wanted to order the burnished one but that one has terrible reviews also. I would never buy another KitchenAid product. I bake for a local charity. The children already have compromised immune systems without having flakes of whatever in their baked goods. I had an old KitchenAid that I gave away - wish I could get it back!

Good design, but needs a coating upgrade

By 

from Knightstown, IN

Comments about KitchenAid Stand Mixer Flat Beater:

Please find a new way to manufacture this beater attachment! Everything about the mixer and it's accessories has worked well for us, except for the coating on this particular item, which is gradually chipping away.

Old one last a life time !

By 

from Lindenwold , NJ

Comments about KitchenAid Stand Mixer Flat Beater:

I've had my mixer for 37 yrs. and love it . Wouldn't bake with out it . My flat beater has not chipped at all and I wanted to purchase a new beater with the rubber attachment on it but you don't seem to offer one for my model k5ss .And after reading the reviews for the new ones I think I'll just stick to my old reliable one . Maybe Kitchen Aid should go back to making them the way they used to 30 yrs. ago !

Chipping coating

By 

from Ontario Canada

Comments about KitchenAid Stand Mixer Flat Beater:

I really like using my stand mixer. However, the white coating on the flat beater bar and also on the dough hook is chipping off. I have never washed it in the dishwasher, always by hand and dry it immediately. I am hesitant to pay for a replacement in case the same thing happens. Why isn't there one made of stainless steel? Perhaps there should be a recall for these defective parts.

We bought our Kitchenaid a few years ago, love everything about it, but the flat beater paint is chipped off and the wires for the whisk are broken and it can't be used now.

Coating Chipping Off

By 

from Ann Arbor, MI

Comments about KitchenAid Stand Mixer Flat Beater:

It works really well, but we're having the same problem as many others here that the coating is chipping off. I actually got online to try to order a replacement, but I'm hesitant if so many are having the same problem.

Coated Flat Beater Chips

By 

from Alaska

Comments about KitchenAid Stand Mixer Flat Beater:

I've been using KitchenAid stand mixers since I was a kid. My mom's 40-yo KitchenAid stand mixer (used frequently for 40 years) has the original 40-yo coated flat beater that has never chipped! I had a KitchenAid coated flat beater with a stand mixer (purchased approx year 2000) that never chipped. I sold it and purchased the Professional KitchenAid stand mixer. Then, I ordered the coated flat beater from the KitchenAid website. After a while, it started chipping. I'm very disappointed with the reduced quality.

mine didn't chip until.. try adjusting the beater's height?

By 

from Cottage Grove, OR

Comments about KitchenAid Stand Mixer Flat Beater:

I've used my coated flat beater, literally, for 36 years before it chipped. That's 36 years of constant use, several times a week, efficiently scraping the lower curves of the bowl. However, I've recently moved from San Diego to Oregon, and when I put by mixer back together, I didn't realize the height or tilt adjustment was off.. it was hitting the bottom. Eventually did chip. So, for those of you concerned about purchasing this attachment due to the other reviews.. perhaps double-checking the beater height (i.e., the mixer head tilt adjustment) before first use would preclude the chipping issue.
