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.

Enamel Chipping off of paddle

BekahLeigh 7/22/2019

I love my mixer but am disappointed that the enamel is chipping off of the paddle attachment! I don't feel good about using it anymore and don't want to spend the money to get a new one. I'm so careful to make sure it doesn't touch the side and I'm just not sure why it's happening. Is there anything that can be done?

enamel flakes off.

not happy baker 6/8/2019

I have followed directions and increased the distance so it doesn't hit bowl, but it flaked more. Also, there should be a page in the manual that easily shows the model number of flat beater. Mixer is fine.

Limited time use

Monkerbug 4/19/2019

As mentioned by other reviewers with in months of use my beater began to chip and flake This also happened to my dough hook in a similar time frame. This occurred even though I was cautious about how I stored it. I would not recommend purchasing this style in either product.

Coated Flat Beater

Moonlight51 3/18/2019

This is the third time I have had to replace this beater. Isn't it sad that the beater doesn't match the quality of the mixer. Why don't they make a stainless steel beater. One shouldn't have to worry about the coating coming off when you are mixing up food - companies have to do recalls over that type of problem. When can we expect a good quality upgrade?

The coated beater taints the Kitchen Aid brand

Quintelle 2/3/2019

I have purchased 5-6 coated beaters. Because this is the only mixer I have, in between buying beaters, I am unable to fix cookie dough, cakes and other items that require beating. It's time for me to buy another beater. These expenditures have made owning this mixer very expensive

Don't Purchase- Enamel Chips Easily!

rarereviwer 1/10/2019

I rarely use my mixer, but this beater started chipping with little use. The coating ends up in my food. KitchenAid doesn't want to replace this part. Consider different brands.

PomPom 12/29/2018

Received my new mixer as a present and after the first use the coating chipped off and I had to toss out all the mixing because it had metal shavings all through it - for the price I thought this product was suppose to be A+ - afraid of what it is going to do next -- having problems finding a replacement as well --- Why does this cost sooooo much

chipped beater

kellykay1969 12/28/2018

I purchased a professional 5 plus mixer. When I opened the box beater was chipped. I returned it to the store for another one. I used once only to have a chip appear on the beater as I was washing it. I made sure it didnt hit bottom of bowl using a dime as recommended. I am very frustrated with the quality of this product.

working one handed

sstricker 12/1/2018

I love my 5 qt. stand mixer. I make a lot of baked goods for my family, but I'm working one handed but I have lost the use of the flat beater due to the paint/coating coming off. It almost seems as if the metal is corroding underneath. It's bumpy. I am very disappointed and don't know what else to do. I can send photo, if you would like.

Why is it so difficult for you to provide the model numbers of mixers your accessories work with? The lack of specifications information throughout your site is appalling for a manufacturer's site!

chipped coating

Mom of 5 10/21/2018

I received my kitchen aid mixer almost two years ago and loved it, but the beater started chipping the first month. At this point there are so many chips, I am concerned that it is not a safe product. I have had $10.00 hand mixers with attachments that last for years without problems. I would have expected better quality attachments to come with the Kitchen Aid stand mixers.

Eating chipped enamel

Cindy A 9/27/2018

I absolutely love my KitchenAid mixer! It has been running strong for 20 years. I love the attachments (especially the fruit strainer). The beater is the only exception. The enamel chipped off original beater, when it was just a few month old, so I called KitchenAid. The rep said it was my fault for not adjusting the bowl height, so they wouldn't replace it. So I gave in and purchased another one. Before long it was chipping as well. It has nothing to do with bowl height because even the top of the beater, that never touches the bowl or anything is chipped like crazy. I hate to buy another and begin eating enamel again, but not sure what to do.

Chipped coating

bobbyh 7/2/2018

Like so many others, the coating has chipped off and into my cookies. I hadn't noticed until after we started eating them (fresh from the oven is the BEST!). I need an uncoated version - perhaps stainless or something, so it won't chip into my food.

Where have the metal chips gone?

johnson83702 2/10/2018

I love my Kitchen Aid mixer and use it often. The last two days I've spent making Valentine cookies for grade school party next week. Tonight I noticed a large chip of enamel has come off my white coated flat beater. But where is the chip? I'm just sick to think the chip is somewhere in the cookies and I'll need to toss them all. Now I'm reading all the reviews about enamel flat beaters chipping? I'm so disappointed that KitchenAid hasnt resolved this problem! Think twice before you invest in this classic mixer.

Chipping everywhere...

catcooks 1/8/2018

I've had my mixer 5 years now and usually pull it out about 6 times a year. This beater has now started chipping everywhere (and no it is not from hitting the sides of the bowl) Horrible!!!! Wish it has come with a burnished one like the artisan models. How is it that the cheaper models come with ones that won't chip and the more expensive models don't?!?!?! Very disappointing from a consumer standpoint.

Bought my Kitchenaid mixer in 2004, and the coated flat beater finally began chipping earlier this year. I replaced it with a new one from Kitchenaid, but after 3 months it is already chipping. Unacceptable and disappointed in the quality.

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

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!

Coated Flat Beater Chips

2/17/2017

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.

Was given the white Kitchen aid mixer 5qt i think, about 4 years ago. Use it for all kinds of thing and it has made my life easier. Didnt realize the enael had chipped off the beater until my husband said something. Now I dont want to use it. Is there another kind without the enamel? Such a shame for such an expensive item.

11/26/2016

I love, love, love my kitchenaid mixer. I bought it over 10 years ago and it's still going strong. I see all the beautiful new kitchenaid mixers that have been brought to market since my purchase but mine is still going strong so I see no need to replace. And it still helps make my parker house rolls the star of the show at thanksgiving. Yes, the enamel on my blade is flaking off, too. But that only happened in last year. When I first saw it I thought it was touching the bottom, but, no it isn't. And it's getting worse. But all things give out with time. It's been 10 years after all! I'm going to get another blade and I think this is a great product. Nothing is perfect.

11/25/2016

I saved and saved to get a bigger KitchenAid mixer. This reolaced the one I hsd. I always wash all my mixer parts even bowl by hand in sink, never in the dishwasher! So imagine my surprise when making peanut butter cookies (no cheap) finding coating chips all in the dough. So upset I wanted this so badly. My old beater never chipped it was 20 years old!

Coating Chips

11/18/2016

I love my Mixer! I have had my mixer for about 10 years, but I have had to replace the beater blade several times due to the coating that chips off. I always hand wash the blade and it does not rub against the bottom of the bowl. I used it again last night and had to toss out my dough as another piece flakes off into the batter. On top of that now my mixer is making a terrible sound as iff it is wearing out. I fear it is time for a new mixer. I had hoped it would last longer than 10 years. I could see if i used it daily, but I use it only a fe times a month. Very disappointed and not wanting to replace yet another blade. After redoing the reviews of the burnished blade, I don't know if I even want to try that one.

11/27/2015

The white paint started chipping off my beater in several places after just a few uses. I adjusted my beater as instructed before I ever used the mixer, so I know it's not from hitting the bottom of the bowl. The beater was replaced and the 2nd one I received did the same thing. My mixer isn't even a year old and I've been thru 2 beaters with both chipping off everywhere!
