I received a really nice Sunbeam Hand Mixer. It is the Heritage Series Model 2551. It has a 250 watt motor. 6-speed control settings for any type of mixing you may be doing. The ergonomic soft grip open handle makes it comfortable to hold. There is a button you can use for an extra burst of power when it is needed. I love that it came with different sets of attachments. First there are the chrome beaters. Next is the chrome dough hooks, great for making breads! And last is the whisks for the lighter mixing. Included with the mixer was a stainless steel bowl and cover. The mixer has a brushed stainless steel finish with a chromed hubcap with Heritage Series badge.
We have already used this for banana bread and brownies, and this weekend we will be using it for my son's birthday cake. He will be sixteen and his sisters are excited about baking a cake.
I love how sturdy and well made this hand mixer feels and of course it has the Sunbeam name behind it. It is compact for the power it has. Since we really bake a lot, this mixer is going to very handy to have around. My one daughter loves to bake bread, so I am sure we will be having fresh bread soon. My family can go through a whole loaf in one sitting, especially if it is warm out of the oven and they have butter. Even with banana bread we have to make several loaves at one time. We experiment with adding extra ingredients like chocolate chips, nuts, peanut butter chips, etc.
This mixer would make a great addition to anyone's home. It would especially make a great wedding gift, anniversary gift, or just a nice surprise for someone special. This is a hand mixer that will be used over and over.
