Summary: This is a smaller mixer but works well for what my wife and do. We got a great deal for the unit!I like the way the bowl mounts and spins with the mixer. It is small and fits great on the counter.
Summary: This Sunbeam mixer is one of the best hand mixers I have used in my 55 years in the kitchen. (I started cooking when I was almost 14.) It's comfortable to hold and easy to set down on the back side of the mixer. It's nice to look at and it's a workhorse when you need it with 6 speeds and a 250 watt motor..when you need that extra "Boost of power", trust me...it's there!
Summary: I really like this. I had an Oster all-in-one for about 20 years and had to break down and buy a mixer, blender, and processor. I only wish this mixer was a little heavier (the mixers, bowls, and total component.) It was the closest I could find to my Oster. It was also sold at a good price here.
Summary: I decided to purchase this item after viewing the various models. I use it for cake making and also for bread making. It is beautiful to use and the choice of speeds is encouraging. I purchased a Sunbeam in the '80s as a gift for a friend and never forgot the brand. What a reliable machine!

Summary: Great handheld mixer. Comes in real handy when you don't want to pull the 'big' mixer out. The only drawback was that my batter 'splashed' a little as opposed to using a standard sized mixer -- however, all in all, I highly recommend it and find it extremely convenient.
Summary: VERY NICE HAND MIXER REAL SHARP LOOOKING. I ORDERED IT BECAUSE MY OLD ONE BROKE AND WANTED TO REPLACE IT ASAP. HOWEVER, IF I WOULD HAVE WAITED A LITTLE LONGER I COULD HAVE GOTTEN THE SAME HAND MIXER WITH ADDITIONAL PARTS AT THE SAME PRICE.
Summary: Don't buy this mixer, unless you like cleaning up your entire kitchen after you are through using it. This mixer workmanship is great. The color could not be better. I do not use the stand so I cannot comment on it. The problem is the LOW speed is not low enough. Think medium to high. It slings whatever you are trying to mix all over the walls, the coffee maker, and you. I have used it to make mashed potatoes, cakes, and icing.
