I accidentally put my Kitchenaid paddle beater in the dishwasher, and now it has that black "coating" on it.

Is there an easy way to clean that stuff off, or do I just have to keep scrubbing?? icon_mad.gif lol

don't bother.

consider it "matured" --- sort of it's version of gray hair!

it'll still work just fine.

LOL

I know it will work fine, but the black comes off on my hands, so I'm assuming it will come off in whatever I'm mixing.

I think I got all of it off by scrubbing it with vinegar, I just didn't know if there was an easier way. icon_smile.gif

Thanks Doug!

I have the all metal one also. It does have the black come off. I put it in the dishwasher also. I think you could clean it as best you can and not put it in there again. It should cut down. You could also buy a new one. My kids always put mine in the dishwasher though. So my paddle is always putting grey stuff on the very bottom of the bowl.

My paddle beater has the white coating, so it's not a problem. I never put my whisk attachment in the dishwasher though - the directions that came with the mixer indicated that doing so would discolour it.

If you plan on buying a new one there is a new paddle that is coming out soon that has silicone attached to the paddle so that you don't have to stir or push the sides down.

Oh really? Do you know if it's for all sizes?

I have the Pro 600. I know the smaller ones come with the white coating, but mine is just metal like the whisk.

I don't know how some of you put your metal ones in the dishwasher and don't have it come out grey/black! Maybe it depends what dishwashing detergent you use?

Chris, mine has the white rubber coating on it, so that must be why the diff.

ah, yeah that's why. My Artisan had the white paddle, but the new 600 I bought isn't coated.

What model do you have?

I put my metal one in the dishwasher all the time and it doesn't get a black coating on it. Hmmm...

The paddle is aluminum. If it comes in contact with any acids, it will turn black. It can be scrubbed off with steel wool, but it will only blacken again the next time it comes in contact with acid.
