Pros:It did mix the batter!!!! I can't think of anything else goodl.
Cons:sunbeam should be embarrassed to sell this!
I had one of these Sunbeam Stand Mixer 2379 that had lasted for many years.(1973-1995). I only really used it to make cakes so it's been a while before I saw another one at Sears and I decided to replace it....and I can't believe what a piece of plastic junk it is. Don't waste your money...it squeaks and is made of cheap plastic. I would love to put some WD40 on the noise but I am not sure where to apply it. I have only used it twice and it sounds like its going to fall apart. Unfortunately I discarded the box and receipt not anticipating this or I would return it. I give this mixer a very short lifespan and I guess this is trulyone of those sayings that is very true " they don't make them the way they used to."
