Seriously Kitchenaid? Clearly, you could care less about carcinogenics being released by your products into your customer's food. I have had my mixer for over a decade. The first hook that came with my mixer was unusable due to all the paint that would come off in my dough. After being tired of hand kneading doughs I purchased a new dough hook, figuring that 10+ years later, I would not have the same issue. WRONG!! After two uses paint chipped off into my dough. The hook was washed in cold water, no dishwasher.
Can someone that actually gives a hoot look at the reviews from your own website about this issue? Or will it take someone getting cancer and tracing it back to you to make a change? Utterly deplrorable Kithenaid! As for me, I'm done. I am buying a Cuisinart.
