White Coating on KitchenAid Stand Mixer Beater Chipping
Some flat beaters and dough hooks have a white polyester powder coating that allows them to be washed in the dishwasher.
- Underneath the white coating is a burnished aluminum beater.
- The flat beater can become chipped for several reasons.
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.
Bottom of 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.

Top of beater chipping
It is important to take care when attaching and removing the flat beater on the beater shaft.
Using excessive force can cause chipping in that area.
Make sure to locate and align the "keyhole" on the bottom of the beater with the notch on the beater shaft when attaching prior to twisting in place.
