Durably constructed from die-cast metal, the mixer comes equipped with a 350-watt motor for effortless mixing at any speed, and its heavy-duty accessories are color-coded for quick, easy insertion. For added convenience, the stand mixer's free-spinning bowl amps up overall efficiency, while its off-center bowl means minimal scrapping necessary. All this without the hefty price tag (competitive models are typically two to four times as much). From its three-way mixing action to its 12 speed settings and open-handle design, Sunbeam's Heritage Series stand mixer provides exceptional convenience. The 4.6-quart polished stainless-steel mixing bowl is placed off-center so you can easily add ingredients. This makes it especially convenient if your recipe calls for gradually adding eggs or flour mixtures or incorporating delicate ingredients towards the end of mixing. Two chrome beaters and two dough hooks are included for mixing versatility. Twelve variable speed settings help ensure superior control for all your recipes. The conveniently located speed control knob is easy to use and read. A slow-start feature, where the selected speed is gradually attained, reduces spatter when the mixer is started, even at a high speed. This feature is useful when whisking lots of egg whites or kneading high-volume flour mixtures. One of the mixer's tried-and-true design elements includes its open handle. Updated with a slip-free rubberized surface, the open handle offers exceptional convenience and a secure grip when transporting the stand mixer from the counter to the table or if storing it away between use.
