Stand mixer

I have $40 from birthday money. It isn't alot but there are a couple inexpensive mixers for about this. Would I be making a mistake? I would love to have a kitchenaid mixer but that most likely will not happen in my lifetime.

I am not strong and I am quite clumsy and some came be very heavy. I saw a Sunbeam 250-Watt 5-Speed Hand and Stand Mixer Combo for $39.99 free shipping from Amazon.

Would I be making a mistake. Wonder if I would use it enough to warrant getting this?

You will like it so much. I had a sunbeam stand up mixer for 10 years and gave it to my daughter , she's still using it.

I love mine.

I have a Sunbeam Mixer and I like it. I'm not a master baker but it works for me. I also got it on sale over the holidays for 29.99 so could not pass that up.

Does yours have stainless steal mixing bowls? This one is $45 in all the stores around here and I got it for $39.99 with free shipping. Just hope it works good.

Hi Skeeter I got this same mixer at Christmas, and I just had to comment--LOVE mine. I have a Kitchen Aid as well (very old but still does a great job). But I don't get it out of the pantry very often because it's REALLY heavy (don't want to keep it out on counter!) I still get it for the big jobs, but had been happily using a small portable mixer for the smaller ones. When I got one like yours for Christmas, the first time I used it I was reminded of how much time it saves to let the stand mixer do the work while you're free to move about and do something else. I knew that from before I guess, but hadn't especially thought about it. You're gonna love your decision, I'm betting! Jenn
