Beater difficult to remove

New hand mixer beaters are sometimes difficult to remove, but it should become easier with use.

What to Do:

  • Dab some mineral oil onto a paper towel and apply it at the end of the beaters.
  • Insert the beaters and eject them a few times.
  • Do not pull the beaters forcibly out of the mixer, as this can damage the retaining gear.
  • If you are unable to eject the hand mixer beater by pressing the button on the top of the hand mixer, it may help to turn the hand mixer upside down and press the button against the countertop.
