KitchenAid snafu - should I be worried about stainless steel shavings?
July 14, 2017 10:07 AM   Subscribe

I used the wrong-sized whisk attachment on my KitchenAid and now the inside of the bowl is scraped up (there's a perfect ring around the upper third of the stainless steel bowl, right where the sides of the whisk were scraping against it). Should I be worried about metal shavings in my cake?

How deep is the scrape? If we're talking about light scratches, I personally wouldn't be worried, but something deeper than scuff marks may be more cause for concern.

Not terribly deep, but I can feel the ring when I run my finger over it. I also found a small curlicue of metal on the counter, so I'm thinking I should just bin the whole cake.

I'd take that as a pretty bad sign. RIP cake. :(

A really powerful magnet could probably pull the shavings out of the cake... but I think it's probably safer all around if you just make another cake. Sorry.

Cake and I go way back, so it's hard for me to say you should bin the cake, but bin the cake.

I recently bit into a piece of metal that had made its way into a loaf of bread, and even without cutting my mouth or causing any damage it still really made my tooth hurt! I shudder to think of the damage it could have caused. I would throw it away, sorry.

Cake is in the bin. This was my third attempt at this particular recipe. I'm beginning to think it's cursed.

The bowl is probably stainless and mostly won't stick to a magnet.
