Summary: I am pleased with my Sunbeam mixer. It works well and I have not had any problems with it yet. They only thing I do not like is that I am unable to purchase a paddle attachment piece for it. I did not realize when I bought this that the paddle attachment was only sold to work with a kitchen aide mixer.
Summary: I thought it was a metal mixer ,like my 30 year one I was replacing. It is plastic and I returned it for full credit . I repaired the old metal one, works great ! [ no response on the mixer in question ] .
Summary: They only thing I was disappointed with is the fact that only the large bowl was included. With my old Sunbeam I had for many, many years had the two bowls. My daughter-in-law has ordered the small bowl for me and will bring it out with her on her next visit. All in all it is a good mixer....much lighter than my old one though.
Summary: This model is very similar to its predecessor but just enough different that parts are not interchangeable. The new model has retainer clips on the turntable and bowl (bowl - singular; it no longer comes with two different size bowls). Through some back-room engineering, I was able to swap the turntable from my old mixer and now have three bowls that I can use.
Summary: The mixer is probably a good deal for someone that only uses one occasionally. I have so far had zero problems with the one that I purchased, but the motor is made with a plastic housing instead of a metal one. Because of this I am left to wonder if it will last a long time or not. The attachments all seem to function okay, but overall everything just seems light duty.
Summary: We owned a Sunbeam Mixmaster that we had for about 30 years. It was made of real metal and covered with real chrome. It was heavy and sturdy. Extremely well built! This one we just purchased from Amazon is junk. Plastic stand and housing with imitation chrome finish. Unit rocks back and forth on the stand. You can't use bowls from older mixer. Do not recommend you buy this unit.
Summary: I debated about buying a Kitchenaid mixer but since I don't use my mixer a great deal anymore. My old Sunbeam mixer lasted me for 50 years. Any product that has lasted that long with high use is good enough in my book. $80 dollars compared to $400 plus dollars for a Kitchenaid, I'm sticking with my tried and true the Sunbeam!
Summary: It was a nice looking piece of equipment but when you plug it in it did not run. I am assuming they knew there was a problem with it because we did not have to return it and got an immediate refund. At last the refund process was easy.
