My new birthday stand mixer!

Many thanks to everyone for the birthday wishes. Thank you to my old boss, and second mom, for her very generous gift card to Lands' End/Sears.

I happened to stop by Sears today, and what a deal!! They are clearing out their Sunbeam "Heritage Collection" stand mixers! $149, down to $59.96. I used my birthday gift card, and I am now the proud owner of a stand mixer! WOOHOO :)

I don't do a lot of baking, but enough that I've always wanted a stand mixer. This one is great! 450 watts of power, compared to the 300 watts of the $299 Kitchen Aid in the store. It came with a large mixing bowl (shown in the picture), a smaller one, dough hooks, and two sets of beaters (one for light duty, one for heavy duty). It seems very sturdy, and I know it will serve us well. We're getting ready to use it for the first time, and whip up a batch of Best Chocolate Chip Cookies :)


  1. OH, OH, OH!!!
    I have wanted a stand mixer forEVER. I wonder if they have the sale online?
    Off to look!!

  2. Oh it was a great deal! I couldn't pass it up. Of course, I would love to have a Kitchen-Aid, but that and the "shiny silver Volvo" will have to wait until we hit the Power Ball jackpot ;)
