Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Ambs Disgusting Residue Straight out of Box
I recently purchased this stand mixer (600 Profession Bowl Lift) as a graduation gift to myself. First and foremost, the stand mixer was greasy, (I don't know if that is normal) when I pulled the lever down to let the bowl down, there was this big log of yellow grease between where it goes up and down (again, I don't know if this is normal. Now what really bothered me is the whip, power knead, and flat beater. Unboxing, none of those tools were shiny, it was already "oxidized" and disgusting gray residue was being left only hand, I did not get a chance to use my mixer yet because I just received it in the mail today. I will not use my mixer with these tools because I am very afraid that it may get into my mixes as it does my hand. This seems very unsanitary and it is just not tolerable AT ALL.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by bmkiss67 Black Residue and Cracked
The mixer is 6 months old, Christmas gift, and this is the first time we used the wire whisk. All we did is use it to make whip cream. The connector of the whisk, where it connecters to the mixer, has a lot of black residue and it has a crack in it right along the top rim. Would love to start using it more often but worried that it will end up in pieces in the bowl while being used. Is there going to be a better model of this whisk coming out soon?

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by TMS Black Residue
I am in agreement with other reviews regarding the black substance that comes off. I love the function of the whisk but the black residue is annoying. I've had my mixer for less than 6 months and want to purchase an additional whisk to expedite my process but I don't want to deal with the black residue. Is there a solution?

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by jgonza715 Needed a replacement but not sure
I love kitchen aid products and was looking to buy a replacement whisk when I read the reviews and it seems they all have the same issue I had with the plating rubbing off and it turning my hands black.

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.
