I've had my KA and the attachment set since 1983. They have always gone in the dishwasher, including the whisk. That's 28 years of pretty consistent use and dishwasher cycles. They're all still fine. Maybe at 30 years, they will get damaged?

BTW, mine beater & dough hook are the white ones, not aluminum.

I got one of these months ago for my K45SS.. and boy is it AWESOME! I use it for cake, cookie & such. I'll prolly be good for initial bread dough, then finish it with the hook.

Thanks for the recommendation, Josh. Does the rubber really help scrape down the bowl? It seems like a great idea.

Yes it does .. before with the standard flat beater I was stopping the mixer every min or so to scrape. Here is a great YT of it in action

I find it disappointing that the new ones are uncoated, I have older coated ones and they have been going through the dishwasher for about 18 years.

I have a beaterblade and it is awesome, no stopping to scrape down the bowl.

Very disappointing, bakechef. A high end product with low end attachments. Kind of like Harleys... they want you to modify the bike and "make it yours" by swapping out unfinished parts for chrome plated ones and uncomfortable seats for better ones. Of course, they expect you to buy their products to do this, lol.

I ordered one of those blades yesterday, in red ;^)

The Beater Blades are great. As an extra bonus, they are more efficient - everything beats up faster. You will reduce your beating time by 25-50%.

I'm looking forward to getting it, especially if it cuts down scraping the bowl.
More efficient and DW safe, what else is there?

What is that? I only went through Google's first page and no luck.
