Google "food grade grease." You'll find it for less.

I found some on Amazon that might work and they claim not to split even at higher temperature. I figure that if it's good enough for commercial grade food appliances, then it should work for a home mixer.

I love it when these wonderful old KA mixers find homes that appreciate them! Congrats!

Thanks! I want to keep this running for years to come. I find it a shame that many appliances from this era were tossed aside for shinier newer junk that wasn't made to last.

Good for you. I didn't pay Hobart prices for my mixer, or any of the attachments, so I don't know why I would pay Hobart prices for grease when I don't have to. Ya gotta work to make poverty tolerable.

Which grease did you get (or are thinking about getting?) Lubriplate seems to be the go to manufacture of food grade grease and has a lot of different ones based on use.

Bakechef, does your new toy have any vital statistics embossed on the base's bowl holder?

Thanks for verifying that your new toy is a 1.2 Amp., Model 3-C. I have the Monky Ward clone.
