HOW DO I KNOW IF I NEED TO REPLACE MY CERAMIC BOWL?
KitchenAid® ceramic bowls are designed to endure, but you should check ceramic bowls periodically for the rare crack or chip. If you find damage, it’s time to replace it. You may never need to replace your bowl but it’s always nice to have more than one bowl on hand to help multitask and for displaying multiple looks. Keep an extra bowl on hand when making a multi-component dish, or simply switch out your bowls to match the seasons or your moods.
ARE KITCHENAID® CERAMIC STAND MIXER BOWLS DISHWASHER SAFE?
All KitchenAid® ceramic bowls are dishwasher safe. If your bowl has baked on food, soak it in soapy water for 15-20 minutes before placing it on either the top or bottom rack of the dishwasher. If your ceramic bowl has a pattern or painted design, hand washing in hot, sudsy water will help ensure that the design is preserved. Always make sure your ceramic mixing bowls are thoroughly dry before storing.
