Just wanted to remind anyone who uses the beater blade in their KA that it IS made of plastic and WILL break if you get impatient and try to cream cold butter. icon_biggrin.gif

With that being said, I still love it and promptly ordered a new one. Sure do wish they would make it out of something stronger though, for when I get impatient again....

Try the side swipe, I believe it has metal in the shaft

Is that the one with the nubby edges?

Same thing happened to me... I reordered one promptly too! Hmmm... I might have to try the nubby one!

Just tell them it broke! I broke two making choc chip cookie dough and the guy there found out (through this site actually) and replaced them both! Also they have a new yellow colored "professional" one that is much stronger and does not break, and that's what he sent to me. They told me they stand behind their product and will replace any blade that breaks.

I bought the yellow one (my first) because I remembered reading your thread about yours breaking. Thanks, I love it!

Well, darn.

If my second one breaks I definitely will try a different one. I had read a review about the side swipe and it sounded like there were problems with icing clumping up on it. I have never heard about the yellow professional one. Thanks for the info!

Just because you bought a second one doesn't mean you can't call...I had replaced one of mine and the guy still sent me two to replace my two that broke. Now I have three (and only two mixers! But I do have three bowls.)

What sized mixer do you have? My KA beaters are metal and I have all the different sizes, so I'm just wondering. You can probably but replacement beaters that are metal.

Mine broke when I was just mixing cake batter. I emailed the company and they sent me a new one free of charge. I have the Side Swipe but don't like the nubs on it. It is so much harder to clean than the Beater Blade. I would chose the Beater Blade every time due to their great customer service!

I have three different KA models and all have the metal blade. I didn't know that they made a plastic one. Maybe the plastic one is included in the less expensive sale models that I hear about on CC all the time.

Costume, we are talking about those cool ones that have like spatula-edges so you don't have to scrape the bowl. They aren't sold by KA...very nice though! I rarely use the KA ones anymore.

Ahha, that's what I was wondering. You'd have to work really hard to break one of the KA ones!

I would have to say that I am as well... I didn't know how much I depended on it until I didn't have it!
Their CS was wonderful!

I love mine too. Just did a big batch of NFSC and it was such a dream to not scrape down, though I was a little nervous about the stiffness of the batter.

Can you order the yellow one on their site?

You should be able to...that or Amazon.com.

NFSC is what broke mine, but I had made many batches prior to that one, maybe I weakened it or something...

Wow, I was just thinking yesterday that I am sick of scraping down the bowl and should look into a Beaterblade, but was concerned if it would be durable enough. Now I know, they stand behind their product, I'm sold. Thanks for the info.
