I don't know about a sunbeam, but I wouldn't take anything for my kitchenaid.

Um...geez Bang...I don't pay attention to that stuff. I got the thing for a wedding gift. It is a mixer/food processor/gadget thing. I use it for everything from making pizza to baking cheesecake to coleslaw.

I like it because the dough hooks don't get jammed up in stuff. The last mixer I had was worse than useless. It is not designed for heavy duty use, would not stand up to a commercial kitchen, but it is wonderful for me. I never serve more than 30 in our house so it is perfect for me.

What did you have in mind? Are you looking to buy or just for info?

I want to buy one primarily for making pizza dough. I have been reading reviews. Some like or hate the Kitchen Aid Mixers and the same goes for the Sunbeams. I was checking out the Hamilton Beach Stand Mixer too.

I really like mine for pizza. The dough hooks are great. I make a lot of bread and these never let me down. Pizza dough, cinnamon buns, regular bread...it is all good with this. I have used a Kitchen Aid too, and prefer mine for dough. If you are getting one, get one with all the attachments too, makes pizza very quick. You got the dough hooks, the grater for the cheese...the chopper for the other stuff. No time at all for awesome pizza. Of course then you have to talk to MJ and the rest of the crew about cooking that pizza. I just do mine in the regular oven. On a cookie sheet no less...my pizza stone is toast. Good luck Bangbang, hope you find a good one. May I recommend eBay as good starting point?

Thanks Alix. I am going to visit my daughter. She has the Kitchen Aid. I will run it through a pizza dough workout and see what I think. I use a pizza screen for my pizzas. I am looking for a piece of quarry tile to use as a stone.

Here I go telling my age again...I have a GE that I bought when I was in the 11th grade..1951 and it still works. It came with a juicer that sits on top so we did the lemons on my son's tree.
