I just bought this model for $59.00 at Ocean State Job Lot. I wanted to try it out a couple times before I wrote a review. I already own a Breadman Bread Maker (which I love for over 6 months now and it was the least expensive bread maker) so I really just needed a stand alone mixer vs. the hand mixer I have had for years. However, I first mixed a batch of bread dough, 4 cups of flour in size, and yes I had to help it with the spatula, no big deal, and it did wobble a bit on the stand. I noticed a little smoke, hardly noticeable, and if you read the instruction manual it says that this can occur when it is new and is perfectly normal. It sure beat mixing bread dough by hand! Today I made a large batch of oatmeal chocolate chip peanut butter cookies and it worked perfectly. Yes, I did have to scrape the sides along the way, but so what. No wobble. For $59.00 it is way better than holding a hand held mixer and trying to do it. Some people who had trouble with the bowl not turning I believe was because they had the lever in the wrong setting. There is a big and small bowl setting, and it makes a difference. The smaller bowl is a special order, which I think I will get for smaller needs, i.e. whipped cream. For the price it is perfect. If I was going to make large batches of bread dough this would not be enough of a machine, not because of power but because of the way it mixes compared to KitchenAid. But for a one loaf size or pizza dough it works fine. I will update more later with more use. If you read the reviews on the KitchenAid mixers you will find people who have defective machines and are unhappy, and at a price of over $300.00!

I really like this mixer and the power it has to mix anything I'm making. Many mixers bog down when mixing bread dough, not this mixer. It is a very good value for the money. I had considered another brand but am glad I went with the Sunbeam.

This Sunbeam 2954 350 Watt mixer works just as advertised. Have used for many things and it works well for mashing , mixing , blending etc. Very happy with this purchase. Works very well considering the cost.

I had the sunbeam stand mixer #2395 and loved it. They discontinued this model and of course I dropped the glass bowl and couldn't replace it or the beaters. I have a christmas cookie business and really count on my mixer. So I took a chance and was very pleased. I also have the kitchenaid mixer and prefer the sunbeam.

$79 vs $300 .. for 350watt of power; this mixer does exactly what I need it to do, mix.. handle heavy cookie dough and its a stand mixer with power that has a pretty look for my new kitchen. and a 1 year warranty. What's not to like. Talk about getting More bang for the buck. I'm thrilled to have this product. Just in time for the holidays. now I have $200 bucks to spend on xmas gifts.

I HAVE JUST USED MY NEW MIXER. IT WAS EASY TO ASSEMBLE AND PRACTICALLY RAN ITSELF, I USED A SPATULA SEVERAL TIMES, BUT IN COMPARESION TO OTHER STAND MIXERS I HAVE OWNED, IT OUTRANKS ALL OF THEM. THERE ARE SO MANY SPEEDS TO CHOOSE FROM AND IT RUNS VERY QUIETLY. I LOVE IT AND CANNOT WAIT TO USE THE DOUGH HOOKS.

I am so surprised that so many people do not like this. I bought this solely to make fondant. I got tired of kneading with my hands and getting really sticky so I wanted something to do it for me. I really, really wanted the Kitchen Aid mixer but I could not see myself spending over $200 for it. Anyway, this does the job. It mixes all my fondant ingredients well to the consistency I desire.I use the dough hooks to mix my fondant. It does not get stuck at all. I have had this for a month now and have used it several times. To make sure my ingredients are mixed, I alternate between the mixing of the inner and outer switch. Well worth the money!

Beaters began rusting after first washing. Sunbeam Customer Service said they would send replacements under warranty, but sent dough hooks by mistake. Called back, and had them send the correct part. A few weeks later, received replacement beaters: they are 3/4 of an inch shorter than the originals and won't mix contents in the bottom of the bowl. Called Customer Service again. Their response: "Sorry they don't work for you, but those are the only ones we have." After one washing, they're rusting, too. "Caveat emptor."

I purchased this for my daughter and all appeared to be the exact as the one I had. As it was easier to ship through Amazon I purchased it and returned the one I had previously bought at the local sore. The total cost would have been the same if I had shipped the origional. Upon using it -it comes apart, is totally plastic and the beaters are poor quality and appear to have a plastic tip that will easily fall off. I feel the quality is very poor. I would not purchase this item if I had seen it first.

I would give this negative five stars if that were possible. I had a 350 watt Sunbeam stand mixer that I used for more than 15 years, and when it finally bit the dust, I ordered this one. Instead of metal, it is all lightweight plastic. Still, I gave it the benefit of the doubt...the price was good, and I hoped it would work fine for light mixing jobs. I used it once, and it worked fine. Not great...I had to use a spatula liberally to get an even mix. The second use, it refused to turn on at all. The light comes on to indicate power is connected, but the motor does not turn the beaters. I have contacted Sunbeam, and will hope I can get a refund. I definitely do NOT want a replacement for this piece of junk.
