If you don’t have a mixer in your kitchen, you quickly notice its absence. They make the difference in so many recipes and while you can hand beat some mixes, others are impossible without a little extra electrical powered help.
So, the Sunbeam 250-Watt 5-Speed Stand Mixer is a really nice addition to most people’s culinary repertoire. It’s very cost-effective and it means you can get to grips with better baking almost immediately!
The Whirl-d Of Good Things
You can see a Sunbeam Mixer in action in the YouTube clip below and while the model I reviewed is not identical to this, it’s very close:
A lot of folks use their mixer to tackle cake mixes and muffin mixes and I do that too but my first preference with a mixer is to get to grips with better bread dough. You see, I love fresh bread and while we don’t make our own every day, my husband will whip up a few loaves on a weekend.
You can hand-knead bread dough but it’s a lot of work for very little additional reward. Here you can see the difference that it makes when you use a mixer:
So, How Did The Sunbeam Do?
The Sunbeam is an entry-level mixer and I wouldn’t look to it for even the smallest of communal kitchens, it’s not designed for heavy use – it is, however, perfect for the family kitchen where it will be used 2-3 times a week (maybe a bit more in vacation season).
Best of all, I found it to be very easy to clean which is vital when it comes to mixers – they get covered in food and it has to come off.
You can find the Sunbeam 250-Watt 5-Speed Stand Mixer over on Amazon for a very decent price. I highly recommend this product to help unleash your inner baker!
