<<<<CLICK THIS IMAGE FOR DETAILS
Just like having an extra set of hands in the kitchen, this 2371 MixMaster stand mixer by Sunbeam makes prep work easier and a lot more fun. Use the stand mixer for anything from day-to-day tasks like making pizza dough for homemade pizzas or mixing pancake batter on the weekends to more ambitious projects like the perfect birthday cake with homemade frosting or high-volume cooking and baking endeavors during the holidays–like colorful holiday cookie recipes or pumpkin pie with freshly whipped cream.
Powerful Motor with 12 Speed Settings
The countertop appliance comes equipped with a powerful 350-watt motor and 12 different speed settings for quickly and precisely mixing ingredients to perfection. Fold-knead, stir, blend, mix, cream, whip, and more.
The mixer’s Soft Start mixing function helps minimize unnecessary splatter and messy flour puff by gently accelerating to the selected speed after start-up. The mixer also provides a burst-of-power function for an extra surge of power as needed to ensure even blending at any speed.
Accessories for Added Versatility
The stand mixer comes with three attachments: a pair of chrome beaters for making batter, meat loaf, and all textures in-between; a pair of whisks for egg whites, mayonnaise, creamy salad dressing, and other air-infused creations; and a pair of hooks for mixing and kneading yeast doughs. All three are solidly constructed and easily secured. Even more, the chrome beaters fit the shape of the bowl for maximum coverage, plus they don’t have center posts, which makes cleanup a snap by hand or in the dishwasher.
Two glass bowls are also included: a 2-quart and a 4-quart bowl–perfect for accommodating small or large quantities. Slide the turntable bowl selector to the left when using the 2-quart bowl or to the right when using the 4-quart bowl.
Sleek, Convenient Design
For time-saving convenience, the appliance’s head and beaters are off-center from the center of the bowl–this arrangement makes it easy to add ingredients while simultaneously mixing. Each beater rotates independently of one another while the free-spinning mixing bowl rotates automatically. This synchronized three-way mixing action swirls ingredients into the perfect consistency.
Additional highlights include a large turn dial for setting the speed, an on/off and speed indicator light, a head that tilts back and locks into place for easy bowl access, and a button for simple attachment removal, as well as an ergonomically designed soft-grip handle for maximum comfort when lifting and lowering the head.
The stand mixer, with its clean white housing and grey accents, nicely accommodates surrounding decor. Store it in a cupboard or cabinet in between use, or leave it out on the counter for easy access. Weighing about 17-1/2 pounds, the MixMaster stand mixer measures approximately 13-3/5 inches long by 12 inches wide by 14-4/5 inches high.

Because it is one of the more affordable of the stand mixers available today, the Sunbeam MixMaster is a terrific purchase for newlyweds outfitting a new home or retirees getting back to basics in the kitchen. This mixer suits everyone’s budget easily, without being one of those cheap machines that end up forcing you to spend the extra cash shipping it back to the manufacturer for repair.Size: The Sunbeam MixMaster is one of the smaller versions of the counter top stand mixer. This means that your counter space will not be completely taken up by this one single appliance. This is good news for anyone with a small apartment kitchen or limited counter space. The Sunbeam MixMaster is actually just small enough to store easily under the counter, or even in a cabinet above the counter top area.What’s not so great about the Sunbeam 2371 MixMaster Stand Mixer, White?
Single Style Rotation: Although the Sunbeam MixMaster does offer a unique tilt-locking mixing head, it does not turn the bowl while you mix. This means that you will spend some time in the kitchen working that dough off of the upper edges of your mixing bowl. The tilt head does give you some flexibility when it comes to placing the beaters into the bowl at an angle, but this appliance does not have the planetary rotation of a more expensive model of stand mixer. This could be a deal-breaker for people who have owned a more efficient stand mixing model.
Glass Bowls: Included with the Sunbeam MixMaster are two glass mixing bowls in varying quart sizes. Although it is very nice to get two bowls with the mixer, the glass material choice is not a favorite among many chefs. Drop on of these bowls on your tile floor, and you might end up replacing more than just the bowl. Fortunately, the bowls are easily replaced because of their standard quart sizes. Unfortunately, glass is much heavier than the standard stainless steel or aluminum mixing bowl material offered with many other stand mixers. You can replace those glass bowls with metal versions by ordering them through Sunbeam.
Is the Sunbeam 2371 MixMaster Stand Mixer, White a great purchase?
Yes, the Sunbeam MixMaster is a terrific purchase for the home baker or chef who does not spend every day mixing new concoctions in the stand mixer. The Sunbeam MixMaster does not have all of the fancy features offered by some of the more expensive models, and it does carry a slightly smaller motor. This means that under heavy daily use, the Sunbeam MixMaster might not hold up as well as some of the more expensive and larger stand mixer models. This little stand mixer is versatile and easy to use, making it a wonderful addition to almost any kitchen counter top.
