Some flat beaters and dough hooks have a white coating that allows them to be washed in the dishwasher. Underneath the white coating is a burnished aluminum beater.
Is the side of beater chipping?
Hitting the flat beater on the side of the bowl to release ingredients can weaken the coating on the side of the beater, causing it to chip. It is important to use a spatula to remove ingredients from the flat beater.
Is the bottom of flat beater chipping?
If the bottom of your flat beater is chipping, it's possible that your beater is too low and it is hitting the bottom of the bowl and needs to be raised. Your mixer is adjusted for optimum mixing at the factory, but through time and use it can change, and it should be readjusted.
