by nathanvmc Great product, MFG support could be better.
I ordered this to replace an old mixed we had inherited from my wife's Grandmother that was 30+ years olds. The products shipped fast and was mostly as expected but the chrome finish on one of the beaters was flaking off. When I called Sunbeam for help they seemed happy to help and ship new ones but was out of stock and could not backorder. I asked what other options I had and they said I could call back in 4 weeks and see if they had them in stock. Called JCP and they are willing to return it, I guess I will have to return the entire product and wait for another to ship, seems silly.

I love this mixer, so much so I have it in candy apple red too, from sunbeam.com. I can't say enough good things about it. it works like a charm, is not too loud, has a burst of speed button. I love the glass bowls though they are heavy, I have purchased the stainless steel bowls that go with them too, actually the ones from the candy apple red mixer fit this. its just what I want. I have a kitchenaid and I use this more often. I love the ease of adding ingredients, unlike the kitchenaid causes me nothing but frustration. I love the hands on, I don't want a machine to do it for me. Plus, I have used sunbeams for years. I love this mixer and reach for it everytime, my recipes come out without failure with this, again, unlike the kitchenaid.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Holly This product does all that I expected.
The mixer is light weight and yet is powerful enough to do a great job for all my mixing needs. I like having two sizes of bowls for any mixing use, large or small.

Rated 4 out of 5 by asobi mostly it is OK.
Cannot understand why my older smaller bowl would not fit on turntable. Seems they used the turntable from the Heritage series with a clip that tips the bowl. Trying to figure out how to break it off.
instead of a flat one. Have older bowls from previous units. was hoping to use.
would not deliver to store and was charged for shipping

I recently purchased the red Sunbeam Mixmaster as a replacement for a KitchenAid that had stopped working. Now I've only used the machine twice now, once to make a birthday cake so of course no problems there. The second use was for a DOUBLE batch of Birthday Cake Chocolate Chip cookies with sprinkles and the works. I have to say, I am very pleased with this machine. The first thing I noticed is it is much easier to add in the ingredients than other stand mixers. The second thing i noticed is how well it incorporates the ingredients together. The glass bowl is HEAVY as all the reviews I read stated (so I am looking for a stainless steel bowl to purchase) , but I like the weight of the bowl for making thick doughs. Buying this product was a tough decision, but I'm glad I did. I gave the quality rating average, because the machine is plastic - unlike my mothers adorable vintage one that still works. And don't get me wrong, I actually kind of appreciate the plastic machine because it is MUCH lighter. I'd say this machine is great for young people with a tight budget who love to bake, but are renters in an urban city and might find themselves moving on a regular basis. Or just have limited counter space. The ONLY reason I gave this a moderate rating on ease of cleaning is because the weight of the glass bowl. I was frightened my hands would slip while cleaning it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Short Lady Big Disappointment!
What a sad disappointment the Sunbeam Stand Mixmaster is. Since the 1950s I have had a marvelous marvelous Mixmaster and it worked like a charm for decades. The motor in it broke down finally, but I have kept it, thinking that it might be possible to have it fixed. The new Sunbeam Mixmaster with Stand is a shadow of the older model. It shakes the whole time you have it on and the distance between the motor and the top of the bowl makes it very awkward to attach the beaters or hooks or to add ingredients while they are in. I am sending it back. Just wish I could get my old one repaired. It makes me very sad.
