This is how to keep your gleaming KitchenAid mixer looking as good as new for many years to come:
NOTE: Always be sure to unplug the stand mixer before cleaning.
- For the mixer: wipe it with a soft, damp cloth. Do not use household/commercial cleaners as doing so can break the enamel finish, which can lead to discolouration. Wipe off the beater shaft frequently, removing any residue that may accumulate. Do not immerse in water.
- For the accessories: the bowl, splatter guard, stainless steel wire whisk, stainless steel flat beater, stainless steel dough hook, non-stick coated (white) flat beater, flex edge beater, and non-stick coated (white) dough hook may all be washed in a dishwasher. Or, clean them thoroughly in hot sudsy water and rinse completely before drying. (Do not store the whisk on the shaft in between uses).
- IMPORTANT: The standard wire whisk 5K452WW is not dishwasher-safe as it has an aluminium head. Clean it thoroughly in hot sudsy water and rinse completely before drying. Do not store wire whip on shaft.
