Rated 1 out of 5Â by Ankur Aggarwal Excellent Machine but poor attachment quality - Chip paint
We have entire range of Kitchen aid equipment in our Master Chef Kitchen. Kitchen Aid mixer is an essential part of our daily meal preparation since cooking Asian meals require lot of kneading involved. We have seen over the years multiple hooks we have purchased loose there paint which is first not healthy and can be choking hazard and also not sure why Kitchen aid is not taking any action on it. I would like this to be brought to everyone's attention and would like the company to work on correcting this as we cannot use these hooks once they loose the chip. We have almost 3 hooks used in last 4 years and just due to buy new hook. Not sure how we can get our voice heard other then dropping reviews on other sub vendors website.
Rated 1 out of 5Â by aMom coating chipped.
I read other people's reviews and noted that they also had same issued that I had. The nylon coating was chipped from the cone side of the bottom and the egg shell like coating pieces were in my breads. Then, later I found that those pieces were from the hook. Therefore, I threw the hook away two times. Then, I bought a burnished beater and it has another problem. Now, I need to find another beater and the hook which won't have any problem that I had before. Otherwise, I need to buy multiple hooks/beaters to exchange every time to find grey gunk or chips?
Rated 2 out of 5Â by Raggs Quality of dough hook not good
I liked the mixer. But the quality of attachments is not satisfactory. The coating of the dough hook is peeling off. Its getting into the dough. The pieces are tiny, so are difficult to find. I not happy with the dough hook.
Rated 2 out of 5Â by WeeklyBaker Chipping Nylon Coating
The dough hook works great. I use it for making bread most weekends, and have for almost five years, when we received our KitchenAid KSM150PS (Pistachio Green!). A few weeks back I noticed what looked like egg shells in my dough. Turns out it was nylon coating from the hook. It is now chipping and coming off at an accelerate rate. I can't use the dough hook any more. I would prefer an all metal version, that I don't have to worry about stuff chipping off into my food.
