My beater blade got thrown in the dishwasher. Its not shiny anymore, and while I'm not hung up so much on that, I'm just wondering if its still going to be safe to use, or if there's anything I can do to resuscitate it.

Thanks icon_smile.gif

oxidation happens.

it's called aging

it's called patina (think copper and how it turns green -- can you imagine Lady Liberty in any other color?)

it's fine.

it's just "well used"

I always hand wash mine, but mainly b/c my whip got thrown in a while back and the same thing happened. I think it's probably fine. icon_smile.gif

The KA manual tells you not to put it in the dishwasher for that reason, because it will discolor. But it's completely fine to use.

Mine was a display model and didn't come with the instruction manual, so I missed that tidbit of information, haha.

Thanks for the answers guys!

Same thing happened to mine (thanks mom) but when I wiped it off after it was dry, the dark stuff wiped off too... I wasn't sure if I should use it so I just got another one.
