Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Jael broken wire
I don't know what is the lifespan of this whisk attachment. I have had it for a couple of years now, but just now, the wire on the whisk just snapped off. two of them to be exact. It also rubbed off some kind of black substace. I am looking for a replacement but seeing the reviews, i am honestly discouraged.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Frustrated Review feedback
Same issue with the residue, but it would be SO MUCH MORE HELPFUL if corporate feedback would reply with more than just a thanks and please email us. This does absolutely nothing to help the rest of us who have the same issue, are considering buying, asking about a newer model/improved model, etc.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Marybelle Very disappointed
Got the stand mixer for my wedding 6 months ago, Made too much noice when I used the wire whip, within a few uses the wire came out and it was a hustle to put it back just for it to come right out as soon as I used it again. Purchased a replacement after a few months since I Didn't get a gift receipt and didn't know where it was purchased. Once again the wire is out and I can't use my great mixer again! What happened to the old whips they used to make my grandma's lasted her a lifetime. Very disappointed because I love my mixer.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by lovetobake Tough decision ...
Metallic substance rubs off from the part of the whip (aluminum) which attaches to the mixer. The wires are stainless steel though so are fine. I see the newer models are all stainless steel & really want that. But now I'm caught with a tough decision...buy a new whip which will eventually have metallic substance rub off or just buy a newer model when I spent hundreds to buy my current mixer??

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by julie the baker my wire whip was great until it broke
I have used my for a few years... it's always done great until last friday when one of the wires broke and can only be welded back together... I was just told that KitchenAid only warranties the mixer and parts for one year. I thought it would last a longer time than it has.. sad.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Beckie comes with set, good for occasional use
This comes with the original set. Within a few weeks of occasional use, the plating on the top had come off and was rubbing nasty black stuff on my fingers. Now after having had it for just over a year, two of the prongs are bent making a loud noise / scraping the metal bowl.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by chef achilles heel
This attachment came with my mixer when I bought it years ago. I used it one time in a cookie dough and it cane apart. One of the "wisks" popped out of it's hole and can only be welded back in order for it to be fixed again. I consider that an achilles heel for it, so I guess you can only use it on cream or egg whites or something light like that. I had to spend another $20.00 for a new one.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Joe Cook expected it to last longer
I had the same issue the previous reviewer stated. The six wire whip came with the mixer that I have only had for 3 months. One of the wires came loose from the hole and will not go back in. I would expect it to have lasted longer. Maybe it is still covered under warranty.
