Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Ruined my mother's 101st birthday cake

Beachlvr 3/23/2019

Have noticed a couple small chips off this in the past. I was baking a birthday cake for my mother's 101st birthday. Looked at the batter & there were chunks of the mixer coating. Had to throw it out and no time to go buy a cake. Love the mixer but this attachment is not only junk but dangerous.

Beater finish flakes off

LauraA 2/3/2019

Wonderful machine to have especially for bakers!!

Baker4Years 1/10/2019

I do not have the Artisan 4.8L model. I have KitchenAid Model KSM90, an older model I have had for many years and never had to replace my flat beater as yet, until now. I just noticed after baking Christmas cookies that the beater has a chip and now I don't want to use it. I always hand wash the beater, never in dishwasher. After reading the reviews on the same accessory, I want to know whether or not there is a replacement of the same beater or would any of your newer beaters (i.e., stainless steel or beater with scraper) be compatible with my model? I do not want nor need to buy a new mixer. I wouldn't do without this machine and would recommend the KitchenAid mixer -- except for the problem with the coated flat beater!

chipping beater for 5 quart Artisan tilt head

Niagara baker 1/9/2019

Like many others, I love my KitchenAid 5 quart Artisan, but the beater is chipping. I was all set to order a replacement, thinking it was a fluke, but now don't know what to do, as the problem seems widespread. Has the problem been resolves?

Flaking paint on the beater

Ronda5678 12/9/2018

I love this mixer, but the paint is flaking off the beater like crazy. I cannot use it as is so I was going to order a new one, but I see it has the same white coating as the old one I have. My mixer is probably 10-15 years old and it has had a few small spots that were coming off, but I just tried to use it after we moved and there are too many to even use it.

Why buy kitchenaid?

Kar280 12/7/2018

My mixer and bowl was free. I purchased the coated paddle. No success; chipped. My daughter loves hers but same complaint. Looked at other brands thinking of passing on my freebie and buying my own. Stainless/dishwasher parts is significant consideration. Kitchenaid. Fix the problem

Flat beater chips

Donna268 12/7/2018

I've used KitchenAid mixers for several years. My early tilting model did not suffer these issues. Since updating a few years ago to the pro-line, I've had to replace the flat beaters multiple times. They ALWAYS chip! Is KitchenAid unable to remedy this problem?

Doesn't live up to usual KitchenAid standards

russwinaz 12/3/2018

As you'll read in many (many!) other reviews, this attachment works just fine - until it begins to chip. And that doesn't take long, no matter how careful you are in hand-washing it. Once it starts chipping, you're faced with the worry of chips (enamel?) ending up in your food. The only alternative KitchenAid offers has no enamel coating, but it soon tarnishes and starts turning batters and doughs gray. HELLO, KITCHENAID: This has been reported and lamented for years now. Would you please respond to your gazillions of otherwise-satisfied users and offer a stainless steel version? (And while you're at it, how about discontinuing the two you offer now, since they're both unacceptably defective?)

Better than what my mixer came with

Laurie W 11/23/2018

I bought this because I like to put my beaters in the top rack of my dishwasher. The piece that came with the mixer oxidizes if you do that and leaves a grey/residue. This does not do that. It eventually chip and I have to buy another one. I wish I could buy a stainless steel one but I haven't found it

Great mixer, horrible chipped beater

Pamela Jean 11/23/2018

Why can't Kitchen Aid solve this problem? You have the tech expertise to make a great mixer, but after years of complaints, can't make a decent beater out of stainless steel without the chemical coated surface that chips, and ruins food as a result. After replacing twice, I now buy the hard plastic and half rubber blade from Amazon. Had one of those break, but at least I didn't have chips of paint/coating in my cake.

Flat beater

MartinReitz 10/20/2018

The coating on the flat coated mixing attachment for our Artisan Kitchinaid mixer is chipping off. Not good to have in your batter! I see this is a common problem. Kitchinaid needs to fix this! Our model is KSM150PSBK. The part is K5THCB. Afraid to purchase a new one since the same problem will probably occur.

coated beater

reader2 9/8/2018

I used this beater just three times and the porcelain chipped. I hand washed it. It would be nice if there was a flex beater available as well. As well as flat beater made of aluminum in stead of enamel that chips. I love my mixer, but not this attachment.

SBRoots 5/10/2018

Top coating chips

txbaker41 4/15/2018

I purchased my Kitchenaid mixer about 2 years ago and I noticed the paddle began to chip away after a year of usage. Even though i am very careful about washing it and not using any type of scrubber on it, it has continue to chip away. Please find a different material to coat your beater! For the amount of money I paid for my mixer, I would expect the beater to be made of better quality materials!

Nancy17 4/9/2018

My old mixer white beater from 35 years ago is in still pretty good shape. Purchased mixers for two daughters 3-4 years ago and had to replace both of their white beaters last year. Now both beaters are flaking again!! What is wrong with them?! Need some answers. Always thought these were high quality!!!

Chipping of blade will eventually happen!

ktutt 1/13/2018

I am a food and nutrition teacher and care for 5 tilt-head mixers. All but two of these beaters have chipped in the last 3 years. They do get a lot of use, but not as much as you would think. I wish there were an alternative for replacement, such as a stainless steel beater, that will not chip. I have not had any problems with the dough hooks or metal whips that come with them. We NEVER put these in the dishwasher, always hand wash them. Poor design of the coating.

Bad coated flat beater

llinh 12/27/2017

I received a brand new KitchenAid - 5 Qt Professional 5 Plus mixer a few days ago as a Christmas present. I found the coated flat beater chipped when opening the box. It does not seem like it's ever been used. Also, it is hard to put the mixing bowl in place.

Chipped beater

TAM71 12/21/2017

It sounds like this is a common problem with the beaters and dough hooks that are enamel coated. I found the chip laying on the counter, from the flat beater, and I haven't even used it once. I've only owned the stand mixer for less than a month! Just wrote to Kitchenaid in hopes that they will take care of it promptly. Of course, that doesn't help me with Christmas baking this weekend! I love the mixer but can see problems with any parts with enamel coating down the road!!!!

Please offer a Stainless Steel version

Jibber 12/21/2017

I have the white coated flat beater and it ruined a batch of Russian Tea Cookies we were making. It had about an inch of the coating peeled off into the cookie batter. Luckily my sister in law has the same mixer so I headed over there and borrowed her beater. I checked it out before we started, no chips! So we made the full batch with no issues. On the second batch, the coating chipped! Luckily we caught it early enough so I could pick out the pieces and not ruin another batch. What other options do we have? The pewter/aluminum paddle that turns everything black? KITCHENAID, Please make a stainless steel version for the 5qt mixer!

Chipped enamel coming off beater and dough hook

SueNY 11/21/2017

I love love love my KitchenAid mixer, but I've had it only about 4 yrs., and the enamel recently starting chipping and flaking off my flat beater. Tonight I was making homemade rolls for Thanksgiving, and after using the dough hook, I took it off the mixer to wash and saw that there are several areas of missing enamel. Couldn't take a chance that it might be in my dough, and now I have to replace both the flat beater AND the dough hook because I don't dare use either. I'm so disappointed and thought the quality of the attachments would have been better and longer lasting.

I purchased this mixer to replace my old one. I am very pleased with the mixer, but you can't imagine how I felt when I was making cupcakes for a wedding shower and notices the coating missing from the flat beater.

9/16/2017

I love my KitchenAid mixer. I got it as a present from my husband and honestly, it has been wonderful with the exception of the paddle. It has chipped paint at the top and the bottom rendering it useless. I am really frustrated by it since the machine itself cost a small fortune. I should not have to replace the part!

KitchenAid Coated Flat Beater chips too easily

9/15/2017

Yesterday the Attachment Hub loosened and fell into my zucchini bread batter, initially unnoticed by me. As the beater hit it, it unbalanced the mixer bowl and I quickly shut the mixer off, discovered the problem and removed the Hub from the batter. Unfortunately I didn't notice until washing it that, in coming into contact with the flat beater for even a brief period of time, it had chipped off a 1/4" section of coating on the bar. Had to discard the batch as there is no information regarding the composition of the bar coating, and can't imagine it is anything we would want to consume. A better design would be plain stainless steel or aluminum, yes? Or something that cannot chip.

Chipped Beater & Whisk Attachment

9/13/2017

I got my second Kitchenaid Stand Mixer as a wedding present. After a few months of use, one day while I was making whipping cream, I noticed that there were weird metallic colours in my whipping cream. To my shock, my beater attachment's paint had worn off and now was going into my food. This was the same case for my whisk attachment. Some dark metallic paint (?) was rubbing off from the whisk attachment! I don't know what they changed but my first Kitchenaid Mixer (from 8+ years ago!) has had no problems like this new one! Ugh!

The mixer works well, the beater flakes off

7/30/2017

I love the mixer, but I would recommend getting an after-market beater blade (and dough hook, really) that is not coated in this material. It chips and flakes off. To give you an idea, the bottom of my beater has worn away and upper edges are flaking off. To make matters works, my dough hook is flaking away around the top, not where it would get rubbed putting it on the machine, but the outside edge. This is ending up in my batter, which is disturbing.

another replacement

7/23/2017

The original beater lasted for years and years, but eventually needed to be replaced. I am now on at least my fourth replacement, and they average around six months until the paint starts chipping off. I even had my mixer professionally serviced to make sure there was no issue with the bowl height. I hand wash only. It seems crazy that the mixer itself still works great after 25 years, but I now have to replace beaters so frequently.

have had my kitchenaid for over 30 yrs! just now i am faced with having to replace the 'coated' paddle..has started not to peel but just wear away, having said all that i know many of my friends that purchased new mixers are not happy with the quality of the new ones! even the motors are failing!! don't know why Kitchenaid is not on top of this but if i have to one day i will buy a different brand!! Kitchenaid is not the only company that manufactures mixers...lots of excellent brands from Europe and elsewhere..so i recommend that the company take our complaints seriously, although, i personally have not had a problem with mine and i don't plan on buying a new just for the sake of a 'new' color.

Again, bad beater

7/2/2017

I love my KitchenAid mixer!!!! I hate the beater!!! I bought my mixer in December, so excited to finally own a KitchenAid, dream come true. Unfortunately, like everyone else, the beater has to be replaced. I have carefully hand washed mine since buying it in hopes it would last because I heard about having to replace them. It's not fair that it has to be done especially when you hear of the much older models lasting forever it seems but what is one to do? If you want a KitchenAid mixer, you have to put up with this flaw because there will be nothing done about it, because money can't be made if it lasted like the older models.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE my stand mixer and it gets used all the time! I love it so much that all 3 of my daughters also have and use one...but the beater just can't...take a beating to well. I have replaced mine before and am ready to order another one! It chips, and has multiple spots where it has come off...I would love a stainless steel one that does NOT need replacing every few years..my mixer is 20 years old!! So I will order a new beater in a few minutes because I STILL will use it ...a lot!

This is my third flat beater for my KP50PS and it did not last 6 months before it started chipping at the bottom. Must be a design flaw. Tossed cake batter after finding white chips in it and remade using my trusty hand mixer. Maybe time for a new cuisinart.

After a few months of owning it the coating began falling off, ruining several recipes along the way. I have to purchase another beater attachment so I can properly make my recipes. For the cost of the mixer the attachments should last a lot longer than a few months to a year or two. The mixer itself works great.

Same problem everyone else has had

Purchased and started using this coated beater less than 3 months ago. This weekend I realized base of it had chipped and found the fragment in my cookie dough. So I lost the use of the beater and had to toss my product as I could not assure chips weren't in dough. Very frustrating with quality of product
