I have a KA 4 qt, 4.5 qt. with the white enamel coated paddles. Over time, some of the enamel has chipped off. Within the past year, I purchased a PRO600 with the SS paddle, and have recently noticed the same thing.... grey discoloration. I just tossed a triple batch of frosting in the trash, as I was not comfortable giving it to a customer. I also have the paddles for each with the rubber scraper blades. The KA brand is also the painted enamel and chipped within a few uses. I then invested in another brand (from Kitchen Collection). The off-brand plastic models are definitely my tools of choice.... no issues so far, and they are dishwasher safe!

My bowl was doing this.  I stopped putting it in the sanitizer sink and just rinsed it.  No more discoloration.

Yes!  I noticed every time I remove the whisk I get the grey stuff on my hands.  is there a way to keep that from happening?

It means something is out of alignment and your beater is rubbing the bowl. The grey is actually metal.

Oh, it's not on the whisk blades, only on that upper part that attaches to the part of the mixer that spins, but thanks for the reply!
