Sunbeam 2379 Mixmaster Stand Mixer
Like a second set of hands in the kitchen, Sunbeam's 2379 Mixmaster 12-speed stand mixer puts the fun back into mixing up special treats, daily dishes, and everything in between.
12 variable speeds with soft-start feature ensure smooth, consistent results.

Powerful Motor and 12 Speed Settings
The stand mixer comes equipped with a 300-watt motor, which serves as the powerful force behind its exceptional mixing capabilities, as well as 12 different speed settings that range from fold/knead, stir, blend, and mix to combine, cream, whip, and more.
Each speed can be effortlessly controlled by an oversized dial mounted on the stand mixer's head, with corresponding numbers clearly indicating the speed.
Use the lower settings for gently folding nuts, chocolate chips, candy pieces, and other add-ins into cookie dough or cake batter; alternately, adjust to the higher speeds to effortlessly whip egg whites for meringues, cream for perfect dollops on Thanksgiving pies, and a host of other batters, sauces, and baking mixes.
Soft Start and Burst of Power
The stand mixer's ingenious soft-start function offers gradual acceleration to the desired speed, preventing wet ingredients from splattering everywhere and dry ingredients such as flour or powdered sugar from puffing out and creating an unintended mess.
The stand mixer also handles large, sticky, and heavy loads with ease, maintaining its speed to turn out thoroughly combined results. When things get particularly tough, simply depress its burst-of-power button to ensure smooth, uninterrupted mixing.
Off-Center Head and Beaters
The stand mixer's stainless-steel mixing bowl is placed off-center, creating space between the edge of the bowl and the beaters. This makes it especially convenient if your recipe calls for gradually adding eggs or flour mixtures or incorporating delicate ingredients towards the end of mixing. The off-center design also allows for scraping while simultaneously mixing--reducing the risk of your spatula getting caught in the beaters.
3 Pairs of Attachments for Versatility
The stand mixer comes with three sets of dishwasher-safe attachments, including chrome beaters suited to creaming butter and sugar or mixing up sauces, cake mixes, and pancake batters; chrome dough hooks that efficiently knead bread dough and other heavy mixtures; and whisks that make light work of eggs, sauces, fillings, creamy soups, and frothy milk for hot drinks. The utensils insert neatly into the mixer's tilt-back, locking head, and they release with a press of the eject button for accessible clean-up after use.
4-Quart Mixing Bowl
A 4-quart stainless-steel mixing bowl also comes included. Great for both single-serve concoctions and double- or triple-sized batches to serve a crowd, the bowl fits neatly onto the mixer's turntable base, where it gently rotates during the mixing process--no more chunks of butter, clumps of flour, or clusters of spices and seasonings left at the bottom.
Additional highlights include a power/speed indicator light, a mixer-release trigger that removes the mixer's head from its base for compact storage, and a soft-grip handle for comfort and slip-free use while lifting and lowering the head. Designed with a sleek chrome body that wipes easily clean between uses (always turn off and unplug before cleaning), the Sunbeam Mixmaster stand mixer enables everyday chefs to fold, stir, mix, knead, and churn their way to culinary success.

Top customer reviews
This was a standard french bread dough so I don't think it was anything that would be more difficult than any other bread mix and the entire reason for buying this was for making bread. I really wonder now if it has the power for this sort of use.
And on to quality -- this has also not improved over the old model. This one rattles around on its stand worse than an out-of-balance gyroscope. The stand is still made of plastic (which is the part that broke on my previous model). Although it is rated at 300 watts, it does not seem quite as strong as my old mixer.
This COULD be a very good, general purpose mixer. A metal stand. A bit more power. Closer tolerances in manufacturing. This would undoubtedly add a few dollars to the cost, but I would be willing to pay that to get a good quality mixer that would last more than a couple of years. (It would still not be suitable for heavy duty mixing, but if you need that, you should be looking elsewhere - Kitchenaid maybe.)
It's not as powerful, obviously, as the Kitchen Aid / Bosch / Cuisinart examples, but I suspect those are overkill for most users.
For anybody who wants a capable mixer at a modest price, this fits the bill.
Update, April 2014: Still going strong. The skinny wire whisks (not the heavier beaters)started to break, but I found them amazingly cheap online at one of those appliance parts places -- I think about $2 each.
