The gear on mine is phenolic/plastic and is designed to shear off with overload.

We were making cookies with chocolate/peanut butter and pecans. It is popped and went thunk.

Default mixer gear

Scotts,
How right you are re: gear that is made to fracture.
Even the 20qt. and 60qt. Hobart mixers use this same safety device.
You should see what happens when you get a spatula jammed in the beater!

family's bodies, your call.

Please do not confuse PC with stupidity.

In a pinch use Crisco, but it will dry out in a year or 2.

I've been told Vaseline is food grade. True or not?

Those mixers are tough, but no match for dough and sticky stuff. Even some of the lower-end Hobart mixers aren't intended for that. The ones that can are several thousand $$$.
