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 essential to use a spatula to remove ingredients from the flat beater.
Is the bottom of flat beater chipping?
If the bottom of your beater is chipping, it may be too low and is hitting the bottom of the bowl—you may need to adjust your mixer. Your mixer is adjusted for optimum mixing at the factory, but through time and use, it can change, and it should be readjusted.

Is the 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.
NOTE: Avoid storing or washing the accessory where it can come in contact with the blade of a knife which can score the coating and lead to a chip later.
