Rated 5 out of 5 by deb1275 love sunbeam
i love sunbeams so much, the ease of adding ingredients versus a kitchenaid, having hands on with your batter or dough. This makes excellent dough by the way, something I was never ever able to achieve in the kitchenaid. I love that its quiet, very quiet, thats important to me and all my recipes come out. I love this mixer so much, I had a white one from the beginning when they came out, and its still going strong but I wanted to try a color so I got a pink one. Have had them a few years and they work like a charm.

I am very disappointed in this mixer compared with the Legacy Series I used for years. I am 81 and have used Sunbeam for 55 years. The bowls are light and didn`t realize I had to manually turn them. (my mistake) I wouldn`t recommend this mixer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by cedar Works good for cakes and cookies
I bought this in January 2016. I'd had a Sunbeam Mixmaster for years, having received it as a wedding gift. It worked GREAT. When it finally gave out, I bought this one with the dough hooks, thinking I could easily make homemade bread. The first recipe I tried for Italian bread was a trying experience. The mixer bounced all over the counter, and I had to hold on to it to keep it from bouncing on the floor. That said, the mixer works great for cookies and cakes. But bread--I'm not sure. I wish Sunbeam would list at least one recipe using their product vs. using a recipe one off the Internet or a recipe book. There must be some changes one has to make. This is NOT a KitchenAid. There is a small book included with the mixmaster with a few simple recipes, but NONE for bread. It would be a great help. We could then adapt the other recipes we've grown fond of over the years. Overall, I give it four stars. Two stars for breadmaking.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Koko Mixer is OK for price
I like the look of this mixer. It reminds me of my mother's old mixer. I especially like the red color, which gives it a modern touch. The mixer is decent at mixing ingredients when the mixture is more on the liquid side. I found that when you add the dry ingredients and the mixture becomes heavier, the mixer can have a problem. The mixer will spin the bowl on its own; I like that feature. However, when a mixture becomes heavy with flour/dry ingredients, the mixer has trouble keeping the bowl in check on higher speeds. You have to guide/help control the bowl then. I don't particularly like the dial because I have trouble telling exactly which number I'm on. The cleanup of the bowl and blades is easy enough. I don't like that flour went into some of the crevices on the mixer the first time it was used, so that makes it harder to keep the mixer looking nice. Overall, I think the mixer is just OK for the price. Note: I was given this mixer free for review purposes.

I had a Sunbeam mixer for years and used it weekly. It did a wonderful job of beating, mixing, etc. When the motor died I decided to replace it with another Sunbeam. The new one does a TERRIBLE job of beating...to beat egg yolks to thick it took over 20 minutes, when the old one was done in about 7 minutes! The power is so much less than my old one.It never gets all ingredients along bowls side, and I do not like not being able to disengage head from stand as my previous one, even though it was heavy to hold.
