I am in the process of completely reorganizing and cleaning my kitchen, getting ready for an inspection.
I always clean my kitchenaid during and after use but as I have been looking at it, there are a million different cracks and crevices that stuff can get into. I am currently using a toothpick to get into tiny spots and will go over than with a toothbrush and a bleach solution.
How do you clean your Kitchenaid? Can it be taken apart?
Before you start taking anything apart email the KA customer service department.
I remove the bottom lock plate (the bowl sits in), the front motor cover, and the metal strip which goes around the top (says Kitchenaid), I pull off the rubber feet and wash them all separately. Basically any piece that can come off without cracking into the actual housing. Then I just scrub it down. I keep it covered with an appliance cozy when it's not in use.
