I read the reviews for this flat beater and I personally never had any of these issues. I had my bowl-lift mixer for years now and i still have the original beater and it works wonderful it gets to the bottom of the bowl and is great at getting all the ingredients mixed together and is great with the Thickest of cookie doughs . I hand wash the beater with mild dish detergent and it still look like when I got it.

why is this not made in stainless steel?

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.

Grey oxidation will contaminate food
Comments about KitchenAid Stand Mixer 5 Qt. Narrow Bowl Beater:
Used and cleaned one time. After cleaning it turned grey and now had a power over it that will come off in food. Completely unusable.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Flat Beater Oxidizing/Grey Residual
By Traci R.
from Dunnellon, Florida
I received my KitchenAid Stand Mixer from my husband as a Christmas gift and was ecstatic. I love it, however, I noticed while washing the flat beater that it was leaving heavy grey smudges all over my sponge. I am very upset with this. Leaves you wondering what residual is being absorbed into the food that is being prepared and eaten. I am very concerned from a health standpoint, but I now need to know what is a safe replacement so I can continue to use my very expensive gift. I would recommend this product if there was not a concern about the safety of the attachments. I hope this can be resolved.

I love my Kitchen Aid stand mixer, have owned it for years and use it frequently. I have the KG25HOXMC model. I generally wash all of the mixer parts by hand. But....In a rush to tidy up, I put my beater and bowl in the dishwasher, BIG MISTAKE! Fast forward a week, after preparing a batch of cookies, I remove the bowl and beater and notice this black residue all over my hands and the batter! Very disappointed to realize that this residue is from my beater after putting the beater in the dishwasher and it is now ruined. After much scrubbing by hand and wiping with a dry cloth, the residue is still coming off! I have just come on line to reorder a new beater at $15 plus shipping. While searching to find it I have come across the reviews that soooo many other of my baking friends have experienced this same issue!!! Maybe Kitchen Aid should put out a mass info email to registered users to not put this item in the dishwasher and save happy bakers from waste and frustration?!?! Not to mention spending money to replace...Please make a replacement part that is not the same material.

Upgraded to the Professional 600 from my first kitchen aide countertop mixer. Have many hours on both but I am looking for options for replacement as the grey residue is frustrating. I have read reviews that the coated one loses its coating in the batter at some point. I am afraid if I spend the money on a new metal one, it will just do the same thing after all the reviews here.
Beater leaving residue-disappointed
By Chucks Cookies
from Fayetteville, NC
This was a gift from my parents...a nice large kitchenaid, but the beater is leaving grey residue everywhere, even transferring to a batch of cookies...very disappointing..especially, now that I am reading the reviews everyone is having the same issue...this has only ever been handwashed..such a disappointment.

Coating Coming Off?
By Biscotti baker
from Groton, NY
When I pulled my mixer out to begin my holiday baking I discovered the beater had a residue that came off on my hands. It was difficult to wash off so the residue wouldn't get on my cookie batter for biscotti. Now it looks like it will rust.
Requires special care
As with the review written by "Deelicious south" on 5/4/16, I had one of my children place this beater in the dishwasher. The finish is now tarnished and leaves ugly discoloration when mixing batter. Very limited replacement options is another big disappointment.
from Wooster, OH
This part has started getting dark gray residue on everything it comes in contact with, even though I've only hand washed it and never put it in the dishwasher. This is extremely disappointing--my old kitchen aid mixer never had this issue with the attachment. That attachment was smoother and shiny, maybe it was stainless steel? At any rate, I don't know whether to replace it with this same type, which is getting many reviews for the same problem, or the enameled one, which reviewers are saying is losing enamel into the batter?!? How are we to proceed making baked goods that are the proper color and not containing enamel chips?
Unfortunate immediate tarnishing
from Mesa, AZ
We received this wish a full pack of attachments as a gift with a beautiful 600 series model. The product material appears beautiful, but proved no longer at all usable after just a few cleanings due to a tarnishing problem and residue that leaves its mark on everything it touches. I have high hopes that KitchenAid will have a genuine resolution and correction.
Beater color is coming off!
from New York
I have a beautiful mixer that I can't use because I've been through two beaters and first there was metal shavings coming off in my cookies now the gray coloring is coming off onto all my food. what am I supposed to do now with a mixer I spent hundreds of dollars on without a beater attachment?
