Compare that to the Sunbeam Heritage which I bought 5 months ago... powerful motor (in fact, more watts than the KitchenAid most people buy and more watts than my original Sunbeam)... large diameter bowl so you can add ingredients easily and mix when you want to.
Only thing I would like on my Sunbeam Heritage that I don't have is a glass bowl. My original one had glass bowls and they were great for mashing potatoes in and then heating them up a bit in the microwave, without having to transfer them. (KitchenAid's bowls aren't glass either.)
This mixer will handle the toughest chores, including six pounds of bread dough. It isn't the same inside, as other Mixmaster stand mixers. This one has TWO motors. One for the beaters, another, at the base, drives the bowls counter to the beaters, for a more complete mixing. It also comes with three sets of attachments: Beaters, dough hooks AND whisks. Other models that look about the same do not include the whisk attachments. On this model, the bowls twist-lock onto the base rather than ride on a turntable, an important difference. It is heavy, rests on rubber feet for complete stability. It features a "soft start" which ramps to any of the selected 12 speeds quickly, as opposed to instantly, saving splashing and snow-storming.
I gave it four stars instead of 5 simply because Sunbeam makes no provision for attachments. But really, how often does one need a meat grinder attachement or one for ice cream, instead of simply using the real deal?
So, if you are looking for a quality, heavy-duty stand mixer, with a full two year warranty, under $200, that will stand up to anything you need to mix, this is the one for you.
I agree with the earlier reveiwer about the value of the bigger bowls compared to the kitchenaid mixers. Combined with the speed controls, the better access I get with these bowls makes it easy to introduce ingredients while beating.
I do not agree with another reviewer about the beater release button. I have never found this button to be difficult to use. In fact, I have found it very convenient and would not like to see this feature changed.
I also found the bowls, beaters and the base mechanism really easy to clean.
I had to replace my Mixmaster because it was getting this funny whine when I mixed heavy stuff or when I was running it for a while, like for fluffy mashed potatoes. Also, I think I had some dough that went up through the beater shafts a few times, and it fell out into the newly mixed food when I pulled out the beaters. Anyway, we decided it was time to get a new one.
GOOD THINGS: I like the thoroughness of the mixing. My old mixer needed a lot more help scraping the side of the bowl. I've only done mashed potatoes and cookie dough so far, but with the holidays coming up, I have other things to make in it.
I love how powerful this mixer is. Everything I mix seems so effortless. The old mixer was definitely straining to get the job done.
I like locking the bowls in place. They are very easy to lock and unlock.
THINGS I'M GETTING USED TO: The mixer is very easy to turn on. This can be awkward if you have the head tilted up with the beaters still in place. I've gotten cookie dough and mashed potatoes all over my canisters so far.
The bowl turns in a different direction than my old Mixmaster. This takes some getting used to.
The only bowl available for this mixer is stainless steel. I loved the glass bowls on the old mixer.Read more ›
