  1. You mean this, right?

    The copper exterior is protected by lacquer. So just clean it with water and detergent.

      If you have the correct beast,I wouldn't even use detergent.

      All I ever use to clean the exterior of a stand mixer,mixers over the years is damp,lint free cloth,several if need be,polish damp and then polish dry.If you treat the exterior like a beverage glass,window or stem it will look new maybe forever.My personal experience is over 40 years,easy.

    2. "Clean base with damp cloth and dry thoroughly."
