I never tried making bread dough with my Mom's Sunbeam, but the few times I did use it for cakes, I found it very lightweight.

That is probably because I am accustomed to my KitchenAid, which I've had for 20 years. When I was a kid, Mom had a really heavy old-time Sunbeam, that lasted almost forever. It was much more similar to my KA in weight and heft than the one Mom got about 15 years ago.

I don't know if that helps with anything...

I also would like to know what a "pizza screen" is!

The pizza screen, like the one Andy's showing you, is available at most restaurant supply stores. We have two stores like that in our area and both sell the screens at VERY reasonable prices.

If my house was on fire, I'd grab my purse and my KitchenAid. Period.
