Love the mixer, not sure about accessoriesWe've owned this mixer for several years now and can say that it is a solid unit that does the basics very well. However, we recently purchased the slicer-shredder attachment and after only a few uses it began to remove small, thin strips of plastic from the barrel that houses the slicer insert. This seems to be a flawed design and it ended up ruining a quantity of shredded carrots that were being used to make pickled carrots. The inside of the plastic housing is now scored by the shredder insert, so we will not be able to use is anymore. The housing should be metal and not plastic. Not happy with wasting $40. plus tax.

ovral very goodAug.16/2014. I bought and used it today.
We do lot of food which needs dough making, and that requests a mixer with strong motor to provide tough torques. For the reason not too heavy to handle and price not too expensive I choose Sunbeam 5.3 with 600 watt moter, Sunbeam Mixmaster xx 3481-033. The first time use is pretty impressive. I am so satisfied.The reason I don't give it a 5 because I have no ideal about its durability, but time will tell us something about it. I am going to be here periodiclly,say one year later. If everything is normal I'll give it a 5 then.

Great product and multi purpose!I just got a Mixmaster Planetary Stand Mixer (in black) as an early Christmas gift. I'm so satisfied with it. I was told that it is better than the Kitchen Aid stand mixer since the wattage is higher, meaning it is more powerful. Although of course, it will consume more energy. But because it is powerful, it does the job faster. So it still does not require a longer usage time. I also like how it can be used as a juicer and pasta maker. "It's an all in one" product.

Here we go again from
Not a long lasting productWell folks, I am currently on mixer replacement #4( can't complain about customer service- those staff are top notch) It all started a year and a half ago and since then no mixer has lasted over 5 months. One day you go to turn it on and nothing! In reading back I see that this problem has happened before- so buyer beware. I had originally praised Sunbeam as a long lasting quality product with a great reputation - wish I could take that review back. Wish I could get my money back- instead every 5 months they just replace it, but the baking stops while I am waiting the fix!

Always on the CounterI have used my Planetary Stand Mixer for over 2 years and am still excited to see how well it will do with whatever I'm making. I have used the meat grinder attachment to make relish. I have made cakes, muffins, cookies and desserts. I have used the blender for smoothies, milkshakes, homemade mayonnaise. Slicing vegetables for casseroles, freezing or canning is a breeze. It goes on and on. I leave it out on my countertop and challenge myself to use it as often as possible. I'm buying the ice cream attachment next!

Sunbeam is a trusted nameBack in AU - it's a trusted brand that has been around for eeons, so pedal forward to CA - I bought the planetary mixer over the kenwood and over kitchen aid.
At present I can't fault it. Whisks, beats as it should and has a very powerful motor also. I've made lots of cake/muffin batters and can't complain. I made some potato gnocchi and doughnuts also using the dough hook and it was such a breeze. There was no labor on the motor (which you don't want) and it handled the job of the heavy doughs fantastic.
The suction feet on the bottom stick to stone benchtops as well as laminate really well. I am planning on getting lots of use out of this and hope that it holds up over the years. So far I have the blender and mincer attachment (haven't used this yet so will add a review once I have) and may contemplate some other accessories in the future.
All in all, very happy with the quality of build, materials, finish and workmanship.

Machine, ok, accessoires, pas vraiment....DéçueBonjour, j'ai acheté la machine il y a environ 3 ans. Peu de temps après l'avoir acheté, le fouet a cassé en fouettant des blancs d’œufs (il a cassé au niveau de la vis qui était rouillé). Je n’ai pas pu acheter un autre fouet, parce qu’il n’était pas disponible au Canada à ce moment-là. J’ai donc dû retourner la machine et j’en ai reçu une autre. Je suis toujours stresser à travailler avec parce que les pièces sont en plastique. Dernièrement j’ai refait un gâteau, et le fouet est encore casser (au niveau des broches). Je vais essayer de le coller, sinon j’ai vu que maintenant il y en a de disponible sur le site. Je vais sûrement devoir en commander un autre. Vraiment déçue.

Serious Limitations (Long Detailed Review)I needed another combo mixer/bread-maker after my old one (a Sunbeam Oster Kitchen Centre) finally quit after 35 years of frequent use. I had attachments too but its main use was as a mixer and to knead bread dough. Checking over reviews of different brands, I decided against a Kitchenaid due to negative reviews, high cost and its less powerful motor - necessary for kneading dough. I also decided against the Sunbeam stand mixer for some of the same reasons. A few wrote that it couldn't even handle thick batter.
That left me with the choice of this mixer and a similar looking one from Cuisinart. Since I had been so satisfied with my Sunbeam in the past, and since the Cuisinart mixer was $200 more, I figured I'd be happy with the Sunbeam planetary mixer. After all, Kitchenaid (with a 250 watt motor) was the same price as Cuisinart (with an 800 watt motor). Sunbeam's motor was 600 watts - a good compromise, I thought.
But I'm seriously disappointed in my choice. I have no idea if the Cuisinart would be better or not. My old mixer could easily knead dough for 3 large loaves. I can only knead 2 small loaves with this one.
How about if I just list the points that disappoint me most with this new mixer?
1. The whisk, beater and dough hook COMPLETELY misses reaching the bottom and sides of the bowl in use. Forget about occasionally stopping to scrape the sides. How about needing to EVERY time more ingredients or flour is added?! Plus due to the bowl staying in a locked position, I have to reach around the bowl to scrape the sides instead of simply turning the bowl like I could with my old mixer.
2. The flat top on the 3 attachments remain low in the bowl when attached, meaning the dough and batter can quickly climb up the attachment. It seriously limits me from doubling most recipes or the batter would be all over the top of the attachments. Sort of defeats having a large mixing bowl and powerful motor, doesn't it?
3. The attachments' flat tops also interfere with adding the ingredients as flour and liquids added during mixing often end up landing in the flat part's concave top. I can get around this by stopping the mixer each time I add ingredients AND making sure the attachment is by the back of the bowl. But it's just another annoyance that I didn't have with my old one.
4. When making bread, my old mixer kneaded the dough SO well! How it did was very similar to the process of hand-kneading. It really worked the gluten in the flour. Unfortunately, my new mixer doesn't work the same way. It tends to ball up the dough around the dough hook without doing the stretching of the dough that develops gluten properly. When I remove the dough from the bowl, it lacks the elasticity I had before. So now I partially knead wet dough with the mixer and then finish adding the rest of the flour and knead it on my counter.
I guess I'm stuck with this mixer now since I bought it shortly after moving and didn't get a chance to use it for a while with being busy unpacking and setting up house. It's too late to return it to the store now. Few people seem to cook and bake to any extent nowadays so I think most don't realise how well older small appliances worked or how long they lasted for.
