  • ???Ice cream dasher turning ice cream gray! How can i fix this???

    We have a White Mountain hand crank ice cream freezer that is about 1 year old. Every time we use it, it leaves a gray residue in the ice cream and when i try to remove the dasher, my fingers are black from something coming off the top of the cast iron center. Was i supposed to "treat" the cast iron before using it? I've tried to locate the White Mountain site to ask them, but i've had no luck. Has anyone else had this happening to them? If you know a solution, please let me know as it has ruined several batches of ice cream....THANKS!  G/D

    The above wasn't the home website for the manufacturers of the freezer, but they did reply and had no clue as to why this was happening....they said others had asked the same question. If anyone knows how to find the makers of  the White Mountain freezers, i would appreciate knowing...I can't believe there is nothing out there on how to prevent a problem that is happening to others also....weird!

    Some of the nylon coating wore off on my  KA flat mixer paddle. The exposed metal turned potatoes gray.I would call the company . Sounds like a similar issue to this one. Certain foods coming in contact with some metals (aluminum is one) can turn gray .

     Kitchenaid mixer paddle is staining food

    Does anyone elses kitchenaid mixer paddle leave gray stains on the
    food? It's particularly obvious on cheesecake, with gray swirly
    markings on the finished product. Have seen when mixing cornbread also.

    Any ideas?



    Are they cast aluminum? All the attachments for my Kitchenaid (except
    the whisk) are made of steel coated with some kind of tough plastic --
    almost like enamel but tougher and not as hard. I bought it almost 20
    years ago. What you are describing sounds like aluminum.

    I called the 1-800 number above and did reach the White Mountain people. They have never had a call about this problem before they said. They are sending me a new dasher. They can be contacted at whitemountainproducts.com also if you need them. Thanks for the help!  D

    Was it ever put in the dishwasher? One of my girlfriends put her metal KA beater in the dishwasher and the soap seemed to eat away at the coating on it, and everytime she used it afterwards it would turn her buttercream icing gray.
