The mixer itself is easy to hold and not too heavy but has a lot of power.

All of the attachments and mixer fit nicely in the large mixing bowl which is great for storage!

It works well to make pizza dough, and mix batters and eggs to fluffy consistencies.

This hand mixer has an incredible amount of power. I have used it to mix extremely thick batters (that burned the motor out of my previous hand mixer) without any problem at all. I guess this is to be expected from a hand mixer that comes with dough beaters! The mixer is built well and feels very solid. The stainless steel bowl that comes with the mixer has a tight lid and is also very durable.
I highly recommend this appliance to anyone who needs a hand mixer with real power.

The first impression you get when looking at this mixer is its compact size, which is a plus when trying to store it away. When you turn it on you immediately notice the power and durability of this product. Aside from the mixer's sleek stainless steel style, the mixer comes with a very nice stainless steel mixing bowl as well. For the price this is a very good product, a must buy.

I haven't received my mixer as yet, as I just purchased it from QVC for several dollars less on clearance.

However, in reading the majority of reviews on both Amazon & QVC 99% of the buyers of this mixer were quite pleased with it.

I have noticed a few comments with regard to it no having a slow enough first stir speed. If you need to stir something, stir it by hand why would you even need an electric mixer just to stir?

The only other issue buyers mentioned, was that the beaters were difficult to eject. I called Sunbeam and spoke to a CSR in order to get more information on this particular mixer. So I asked her about the beater ejection issue buyers were mentioning in their comments. The CSR told me, you're not suppose to press the beater ejection button straight down, the ejector button needs to be pulled back with your thumb, then push down on the ejector button. This will release & eject the beaters.

The other question I asked the CSR was about the silver brushed stainless steel finish on the body of the mixer. I wondered if the body was made of a die cast metal or plastic and just painted to look like it had a brushed stainless steel finish. The body is in fact plastic, with a painted brushed stainless finish.

I'll update my review in a few days after I put the mixer through a few tests in my own kitchen.

Update 8/11/11

This mixer in spite of its smaller size has exceptional power & torque. No bogging down of power what so ever, even mixing heavy bread dough. Nor did I have any problem getting the beaters to release.

Thumbs up to Sunbeam on this one. EXCELLENT powerful hand held mixer.

At first I was very pleased with this little mixer. I have owned it for 6 months. I agree with the other reviewers that its doesn't have a slow speed, which is a little frustrating if you're trying to gently introduce dry ingredients to wet ones without flinging flour all over your kitchen. But the motor is definitely very strong, like the other reviewers said.

The motor isn't the problem, however. Inside the mixer, the gears that turn the attachments are made of plastic. This is ok for light mixing, but using the dough-hooks for thick batters will inevitably strip the plastic teeth off the gears and render your mixer useless. And as another reviewer said, don't even think about trying to use the dough-hooks on anything that is actually a "dough" consistency, because the mixer can't handle it. Once the gears are stripped, the mixer cannot be repaired. Mine is broken now.

I would say if you're looking for a powerful mixer to mix batters or whisk liquids, this one will get the job done. But use the dough-hooks more than a few times, and you won't have a mixer anymore because the motor is more powerful than the plastic gears that turn the attachments.

For years, small appliance makers have been force feeding us an endless stream of wimpy hand mixers. The last one my wife bought had the wire beaters, and once that was our only working mixer, the combination of its low power and the wire beaters meant that no amount of mixing would get mashed potatoes perfectly smooth. I finally got tired of that and took action. Surprisingly, it wasn't easy to find a good mixer. All I found for quite some time was the same wimpy type we already owned.

Finally I came across this Sunbeam model, which has a variety of beaters with it. Most importantly, this mixer is sold with the blade style beaters that are needed to do a really good job. The power of this mixer is also top notch. Not only did I get perfectly smooth mashed potatoes the first time out, they were mashed with no lumps in a very short span of mixing.

If this thing will mash potatoes to my satisfaction, it will pretty well cover any mixing task you can throw at it, guaranteed. The mixing bowl that comes with it is a nice extra. The mixer and all accessories fit comfortably into the bowl for storage, and an extra stainless steel mixing bowl is always useful around the kitchen.

Thank you Sunbeam!

The mixer is better than I expected in quality. Burned out two other makes in the last year. I expect this to last a long time. The only complaint is the low speed is faster than I would like.
