DO NOT BUY THIS

Submitted by ga7045 - 7/23/2017

First, I wish I would have read the reviews about this dough hook. I actually chipped a tooth on a pice of coating that fell off INTO my dough. I don't know how KitchenAid has not been taken to court over this as they clearly know there is a long standing issue, have issued NO recall, and continue to put out this product. I am just shocked a company with the "reputation" of KitchenAid would treat their customers this way and put out such a shoddy product. What will it take, someone actually choking on this product before they do anything about it? Not sure I will ever purchase another product from them. DO NOT buy this.

Dough hook leaves significant black/grey residue on dough

Read this BEFORE YOU BUY!!!

Submitted by Seemomrule - 4/12/2017

Well, I wish I would have seen these reviews before I bought mine! Dough batch is inedible! I agree with the other reviewers, THERE SHOULD BE A RECALL! I really hope Kitchenaid will recall in the best interest of it's customers, those who have been loyal to the brand and those considering it. This piece is a waste of money. I am considering another machine for dough making and sadly I no longer trust KitchenAid. KitchenAId, it really pains me to leave this review but seeing these reviews from years ago and knowing you still haven't done anything about it says you must not really care about your customer base. I'm honesty surprised, but mostly disappointed.

Terrible

Submitted by Bridget - 2/8/2017

Chipped coating falling into my dough. I am over it and have thrown it out. I have just spent an hour shopping online for a STAINLESS STEEL version of this dough hook for my Artisan KSM150 mixer and absolutely cannot believe it does not exist. Or does it, and I just cannot find it? I do not want an aluminum version due to the terrible reviews. Stainless steel. Willing to pay more for it. Customer service: I am disappointed to read previous reviews and see the same customer service cookie-cutter response. Please get rid of the impersonal copy and paste. It shows a lack of concern and indicates poor department training.

Chipped again

Submitted by Gabriel M - 1/2/2017

Another chipped dough hook ruins a batch. I was getting the dough off with a silicon spatula and heard it hit the bowl and then saw it. This was the second time this has happened. There should be a recall.

Looks my dough hook is the same as everyone else's, as the coated finish has begun flaking off. I am in agreement that a non-coated version would be the way to go.

Feeling ripped off!

Submitted by Galenagal - 12/12/2016

Like other reviewers, I'm feeling ripped off. If a manufacturer knows of a recurring problem, WHY NOT FIX IT? I have my mixer for 5 years but probably use it only 4-6 times a year for very specific recipes where the dough hook is needed. I did pre-read all of the use and care literature because, for me, this is a huge investment. The dough hook is dishwasher safe and I only wash it on the top rack. Why then does the coating come off? I'll tell you why; it's so Kitchenaid can make money off of the consumer every year or two! C'mon Kitchenaid, you can do better! Make the hook without the coating or I will consciously avoid buying ANY of your products in the future!

Chipped enamel!

Submitted by Frustrated cook - 12/10/2016

Enamel coating ruins too many loaves

Submitted by Jacque - 12/1/2016

I really love my mixer, but I've had to purchase replacement C-dough hooks three times--twice in the past year--because the enamel chips and peels off so easily when in use. I wish Kitchen Aid would offer an uncoated hook for the KSM series.

paint is falling off my dough hook

Submitted by Tobias - 11/30/2016

As many others i have also experienced the paint chipping off. I bake bread about 2-3 times a month and have used it for about 1-2 years. My main problem is getting paint chips in my bread. there is about 2-3 square cm of paint missing on the hook. I assume it is in my stomach now. I expected higher quality of a machine in this price range.

broken! bread hook

Submitted by Ramona - 10/29/2016

I love to use the bread hook, especially to make soft pretzels and pizza dough. My machine has not been used often since I got it about 20 years ago because it is too heavy to lift and move around. Recently, I remodeled my kitchen and provided a slide out shelf to accommodate the mixer and use it more often. While kneading some dough last week, the hook just snapped in two pieces! The dough was soft and pliable and should not have caused well-constructed metal to break. Chips of the coating came off and fell onto the dough. I had to start from scratch and use my Cuisinart instead.

Yet another chipped dough hook

Submitted by janeBerlin - 9/17/2016

I love my Kitchenaid mixer but like apparently many people have the chipping dough hook problem and I do to. I already contacted Kitchenaid and was told by email that I can buy a new one from them. I don't like that ALL the replies from Kitchenaid shown here ask you to contact them. it sounds like something will be done for you, right? In my case I received no joy...just buy another dough hook and move on consumer! After spending over $250 on my mixer I am like a "captive consumer" and I have to cough up money every couple of years for a new dough hook!

Excellent Machine but poor attachment quality - Chip paint

Submitted by Ankur Aggarwal - 7/17/2016

We have entire range of Kitchen aid equipment in our Master Chef Kitchen. Kitchen Aid mixer is an essential part of our daily meal preparation since cooking Asian meals require lot of kneading involved. We have seen over the years multiple hooks we have purchased loose there paint which is first not healthy and can be choking hazard and also not sure why Kitchen aid is not taking any action on it. I would like this to be brought to everyone's attention and would like the company to work on correcting this as we cannot use these hooks once they loose the chip. We have almost 3 hooks used in last 4 years and just due to buy new hook. Not sure how we can get our voice heard other then dropping reviews on other sub vendors website.

Quality of dough hook not good

Submitted by Raggs - 7/10/2016

I liked the mixer. But the quality of attachments is not satisfactory. The coating of the dough hook is peeling off. Its getting into the dough. The pieces are tiny, so are difficult to find. I not happy with the dough hook.

coating chipped.

Submitted by aMom - 6/11/2016

I read other people's reviews and noted that they also had same issued that I had. The nylon coating was chipped from the cone side of the bottom and the egg shell like coating pieces were in my breads. Then, later I found that those pieces were from the hook. Therefore, I threw the hook away two times. Then, I bought a burnished beater and it has another problem. Now, I need to find another beater and the hook which won't have any problem that I had before. Otherwise, I need to buy multiple hooks/beaters to exchange every time to find grey gunk or chips?

Chipping Nylon Coating

Submitted by WeeklyBaker - 1/17/2016

The dough hook works great. I use it for making bread most weekends, and have for almost five years, when we received our KitchenAid KSM150PS (Pistachio Green!). A few weeks back I noticed what looked like egg shells in my dough. Turns out it was nylon coating from the hook. It is now chipping and coming off at an accelerate rate. I can't use the dough hook any more. I would prefer an all metal version, that I don't have to worry about stuff chipping off into my food.
