I prefer this burnished metal beater to the coated beater that this one replaced as the coated product began to chip over time and left plastic flakes in the bowl/food. This product looks very sturdy.

I have had three Kitchen Aide mixers. I upgraded to the professional 600 model, which works fine. I do not understand why your more expensive and heavy duty mixer does not come with dishwasher safe beaters and dough hooks however. I washed mine and they immediately discolored. Given that the accessories for the 41/2 quart model are all dishwasher safe, this seems like a clear design flaw.

What is wrong with the beater that comes with the mixer?
from Greensburg, Pa.
Comments about KitchenAid Stand Mixer 5 Quart Narrow Bowl Burnished Beater:
My daughter who is a baking and pastry graduate bought this for herself. I washed the beater and now it is discolored and when you touch it the discoloration ends up on your hands. It has been sitting unused since I have not replced the beater. I thought these pieces would be a stainless steel item and was stunned to find a gray residue on my hands when I picked it up after washing it. I am not pleased to read that the white coated ones peel and that others are having the same problem. I was going to buy the coated beater, but now I am not sure I want to put any money into scrapers that are going to peel, flake, and discolor again. Please contact me with a resolution since others have been contacted. I want to be able to say we have a Kitchen Aide and when there was a problem, they fixed it. The 600 professional series was a huge investment for a pastry graduated to make.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

This came with my professional series mixer, and immediately discolored. every time I touch it, I now get what seems to be a metal dust on my hands.
Needs to be Stainless Steel
This attachment comes standard with the Pro 600 6 Qt stand mixer. It is so cheap that the finish disintegrates quickly when wet, and the drying cloth and my hands turned grey with the metal powder. I would not want this metal residue in my food. It should be made of stainless steel

Not what I had hoped for.
I have always wanted a KitchenAid mixer and this year my husband surprised me with a Professional series. I am known for my very smooth mashed potatoes and thought this would save so much time. What I ended up with was lumps. I too placed my flat beater on the very top rack of the dishwasher and all the finish came off and I was left with an ash-like finish that rubs off. I was very disappointed, as this was my first time using the mixer. I am ordering another beater, however, I wish that it was dishwasher safe!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Pleased with the product.

About Me Avid Cook
Used with my Kitchenaid mixer. The extra paddle mixers are great when working on more than item at a time. eg: egg whites for merangues and cake batter with egg yolks.
Utilized by professionals for a reason!

About Me Chef
The standard beater that came with our mixer has been OK, but after time, the white finish began to come off at the top and the metal rusted. This beater will solve that problem and be easier to clean. It is well made and exactly what we needed.
Better choice than white powdercoated
from denver, co
Advantage over the white powder coated version is that there is no white stuff to crack and deteriorate. The disadvantage is that you must hand wash it and dry it to keep it from oxidizing - no dishwasher. I really think they should make a stainless steel version.
Service and delivery comments:
Item was out of stock so it took a while to get it but other than that everything went as expected.
