Nononono...NOT Sunbeam. My son got one for me for X-mas. Took it back 2 weeks later.
POS. YUCK. Had no umpf or anything. The beaters "drove" the turning of the bowl or you had to do it by hand, which you pretty much had to anyway. Made a total mess because the bowl was shaped poorly.
I have more luck with my little handheld mixer. Dough hooks and all.
I've heard Kitchen Aid has cheaped out as well. Maybe you could look around at thrift stores for older Kitchen Aid models.
