1980 vs. 2021 - Just OK
The 2021 version was sent to me free of charge by Sunbeam with a limited time to use and review.
I was expecting to be dazzled by 40 years of innovation compared to my AUSTRALIAN MADE Sunbeam from 1980. But sadly I am underwhelmed by this ugly and bulky 2021 version. It is cheap, $60AUD RRP but do not expect much finesse.
Sure it has 230 more watts, goes faster and has 4 more speeds, but it is still noisy and 120g heavier. I reckon it has 7 speeds as a marketing ploy; I only need 3-4 speeds. The Turbo button is handy for a quick burst of spe...ed. Cord strap is useless as it is near impossible to do up. Beater insertion. My 1980 model I could insert the main beaters any way and they’d lock in first time every time, but not so with the 2021 model. Sunbeam dispensed with the cross X slot so you need to align the slot before insertion of standard beaters.

Powered through every challenge I threw at it
Baking has always been something I loved doing. Up until I received the Sunbeam Mixmaster Hand Mixer Pro JMP2000BK, I baked about once a month because I did everything the old school way. Making bread? Knead by hand. Making a cake? Mix with a whisk. I owned a hand mixer but it just didn't work as well as I hoped and I only ever resorted to using it when I made pavlovas. The Sunbeam Mixmaster Hand Mixer Pro has changed that. In the last month, I have baked about once a week with what used to take hours to complete now possible in a much shorter ...timeframe. The Sunbeam Mixmaster Hand Mixer Pro is an amazing little unit. I was so impressed with the thought and consideration Sunbeam put into the design of the Hand Mixer Pro. The storage case was a game changer for me. The hand mixer sits securely on top of a plastic storage case where you can store the super aerator whisk, beaters and dough hooks, making using and storing the Sunbeam Mixmaster Hand Mixer Pro a joy. The Sunbeam Mixmaster Hand Mixer Pro also comes with a short and simple User Guide which outlines safety precautions, features, tips, speed guide, care and cleaning and recipes. I like to check out the recipes that come with appliances because I figure companies have chosen to showcase recipes they've trialled while developing the appliance. I initially planned to try some of the recipes in the User Guide but sadly found errors. The meringue kisses recipe on page 7 suggests using chantilly cream, butter cream or chocolate ganache recipes from page 12 to sandwich the kisses, however my User Guide recipes end on page 9, which was disappointing. This was also the case for the butter cake recipe on page 6. I don't know whether it was just my copy of the User Guide, but I suggest if you intend to try one of the recipes, read ahead to make sure the instructions are complete. To trial the Sunbeam Mixmaster Hand Mixer Pro I made chantilly cream, a lemon sponge pudding, choc chip banana bread, a German apple cake and cinnamon scrolls (see photos). Every single challenge I threw at the Sunbeam Mixmaster Hand Mixer Pro it powered through. And this really is where it shines - the speed settings. It is a pocket rocket. I found it so powerful that I rarely took it beyond setting 4. I do see that the higher settings would be perfect for making pavlovas, but settings 1-4 were more than sufficient for the tasks being completed. I particularly liked using the turbo button for extra zips of speed and I appreciated being able to control the speed when I needed it the most. The super aerator whisk works quickly and effortlessly. The dough hooks however, were a little more tricky for me to master. As I said earlier, I am used to kneading by hand so it took some time to figure out how to use the dough hook attachments properly. However, I can confirm that the cinnamon scrolls made with the Sunbeam Mixmaster Hand Mixer Pro were fluffier and more professional than any I'd made by hand previously. So much so, my family no longer wants me to make them the way I used to. The Sunbeam Mixmaster Hand Mixer Pro JMP2000BK is amazing to use. The recipes I trialled were ones that are tried and true in my household, and I saw a vast improvement after using the Sunbeam Mixmaster Hand Mixer Pro. That alone justifies the 5 star review, but I also want to say thank you to Sunbeam for their design considerations. How people use and store their appliances, ensuring the power cord is a decent length and the built in cord tie to secure the cord for storage are tiny details, but it really made me feel someone had considered my needs as a consumer. I cannot recommend the Sunbeam Mixmaster Hand Mixer Pro JMP2000BK enough.
Definitely a PRO Mixer
I'd recommended this product if you have a smaller kitchen/storage and love the control of a hand mixer. It's great getting attachments included, it allows me to be versatile with my mixing vs a standard beater, and the super aerator whisk makes the fluffiest cream. It comes in a compact container so you don't lose any of the attachments and can easily pack away using minimal space, the mixer itself holds nice and isn't heavy so it's not tiring to use, and the multiple speed levels gives you all the control to the perfect mix.

Beats to a rhythm, creating parties in the mouth
Thank you to Sunbeam and Product Review for the Sunbeam JMP2000BK, it has placed a lot of delicious memories in reviewing the product under the Ambassadors program.
The overall design is good, I love the enclosed mixing tub, which i prefer to store the attachments in as its a nice neat package, where you easily find the beating attachments easily. With this product, myself, my father and a friend, I did get to use and try out as I wanted not just my own input but my father who is a qualified baker with over 40yrs experience and my friend who h...as lengthy creativity in the kitchen and myself because I do enjoy making that special treat and cooking meals and have quite a few recipes of my own. I do highly recommend it for anyone who needs a beater, it is a very good product, I do feel that it would have been nice to gone cordless design, possibly with a section where you could replace a battery if need be. So it was a opportunity, sunbeam could have applied in the design, however I do see why some reasons why it would be preferred corded. My Father said it was brilliant, he actually used it first, he enjoyed using it so much he used it again to make another batch of cakes, first cake was for a friends birthday. Our friend said it was great and they made a Pavlova with it, myself I made a banana cake, some puddings and Marzipan cakes and yummmm I must say. Pictures are below of some food creations, compared to my father who is literally so good as making cake products I must say his creations well he is in his late 80s and wow his creations are great. Anyway I am here to review the beater so back too it! I found myself the speeds were great, it has 7 speed settings and a turbo I am not used to turbo and i did try it but not used to using it, I did find the lowest speed, could have gone a bit slower, I had no problems with the unit at all, my dad found it perfect, he had no problems at all at using it, he is way more experienced being a qualified baker, so I do think my valuation is trivial to some degree, I would have preferred lower speed setting going just a fraction slower, the fastest speed setting was fantastic and wow does it beat up egg whites with ease. The puddings were done with ease, that's where I thought the lower setting could have been a little lower to ease into the beating, The pavlova was done very well and we all enjoyed using the beater and loved the results. I have some pictures to show you, our friend had no probs making a pav and enjoyed a slice of that pav - well the crust mainly all the sugar sweetness Making icing was relatively simple with this device and we all give it thumbs up - PS the only reason why I gave 4 out of 5 stars is that I did feel it would have been nice if it was cordless, because it allows then a little bit more freedom to where you use the Sunbeam JMP2000BK, I took no points off for my perception for slower speed.

Simple, Easy Baking
I love my new hand mixer pro! So simple to use and it’s got every attachment I need for all my baking ventures (especially during this lockdown). The best part is the storage case that keeps everything nice and neat for maximum pantry organisation.

My wooden spoon has been replaced!
I received this hand mixer in the middle of the lockdown which came in handy! So far I have used the beater and whisk. Have not had a chance to use the dough hooks yet. I used the beater for most of my baking, but find that using the whisk attachment for breaking up flour works much better with fewer lumps. The beater and whisk are pretty straight forward to attach and detach. Just when. you are detaching, turn off the mixer for a while as the attachments can get quite hot.
Having the storage container is great so everything is in one place, and is stored neatly upright. My wooden spoon has officially been replaced!

Simple, Works well and stores neatly
My mixing needs are fairly minimal, a few cakes, mashed potatoes, whisking eggs and milk and the Sunbeam does all of this fantastically well.
No idea how the dough hooks performed as I wouldn't even know what could be done with them.
The whisk attachment is excellent and the beaters do what they are supposed to do.. The huge range of speeds is great and the turbo mode lets me cut down on mixing time (also great to spin off excess before finishing).
The absolute best thing about this mixer though is how cleverly the storage is organised. Al...l the bits fit neatly into the plastic container and the cord folds up and it all slots away perfectly compact and neatly in my draw. Everything is in one place, no hunting through the 'miscellaneous' draw to find that second mixer which is like trying to match the odd sock - always mysteriously missing. The mixer 'snaps' into place acting like a lid and a handle, so you can lift and move it all confidently. It is probably my favourite thing about the Sunbeam The other thing I really liked about this unit was how easy it was to clean. My last mixer had little hidey holes in the beaters at the joins where clumps could harden and make it hard to clean. The design on the beaters is nice and easy to clean,

A refreshing change from my old hand mixer
I love how the whole thing, is compact and kept together with its plastic base for storing the attachments and the cord, it keeps everything neat in my cupboard, the plastic storage container actually holds the mixer in place very well, it kind of clicks into place and you just hold the little lever on the container and pull the mixer upwards and its released, the container a good quality plastic not so hard if you drop it will not crack and not so flimsy that it will buckle under pressure, and the unit itself is really well made and I love the...Black color you can actually see if it's dirty with cake mix that's been splashed and therefore easy to clean. I made a cheesecake first and it had no issues with the mixing of the filling and the turbo button got it done in half the time 2 minutes instead of 4 and that was using it on speed number 1 and then hitting the turbo, on a speed higher than say 3 and using turbo is a bit too much and it splatters, but if you can get a result in half the time using speed 1 and turbo then there's really no need to be using it on the higher speeds, I frothed some milk with the whisk for a home made cappuccino and was oh so foamy, it gave me a good thick crema using full cream milk, I also used the beaters to mash my cooked potatoes it also gave me a smooth mash but before you mash them you do need to squish them a bit first before using your mixer otherwise they try to jump out of the saucepan but once it's mixing you end up with a smooth mash and lastly I made some bread using the dough hooks, the hooks need to be placed in the correct holes, unlike the other attachments which are not hole defined, the dough hooks are hole specific so make sure you get that right, unlike me spending a few minutes wondering why the dough hook wouldn't fit and then it hit me oh maybe the holes are for a specific hook and voila found it lol. I'm not sure if it was my bowl or the bread dough I was using but the dough hooks gave me the impression that it just wasn't working in gathering the bread dough together, it seemed to just push it around the bowl without getting it to form a ball nor was it coming together quickly even though I was moving the hand mixer within different parts of the bowl, even after adding more water to the bread dough the hooks still seemed to have an issue with pulling it together I'm thinking it could have been the bowl having a too large of a mixing area rather than a smaller area for making bread dough especially, I have made bread before using a hand mixer but I was using a different bowl and different bread mix at that time and also a different hand mixer, I am not disappointed at all in the product, I don't make bread that often but it still did enough for me to get my hand in their and drag it onto the bench for a light knead and it only needed a light knead as the dough hooks eventually got it close enough to what I was happy with, the turbo button I hit a couple of times unexpectedly, my fault as I was holding it to close to the button, the weight of the mixer is about right and the motor runs well it never struggled not even making the bread dough and the release button for the attachments is easy to eject them, I had to read my manual twice to see how to do it but once you know, you know. Overall a good mixer that I am happy with its performance, I'm even happy with its performance making my bread dough, because it did cut my kneading time in half by giving the dough a head start in the bowl, it lightly moistened the dough but didn't actually bring it together quite like I thought it should but then I took it out and gave it a knead for around 5 minutes instead of 10, I think if I had kept the mixer going to gather the dough into a ball it would have been non stop running for 5 minutes and then you can't have the mixer running for more than 5 minutes straight, you have to turn it off for a 5 minute rest and unfortunately bread dough won't wait 5 minutes not unless it's already at the ball stage and ready for for its first proofing, but given all the tasks I put it too I was very happy, it saved my shoulders from the 10 minute kneading my bread would have needed but instead I only had to knead it for 5 minutes, that's a win win for me. And 1 last thing, putting the attachments into the plastic storage container can be a bit of a challenge if you have them in the wrong way around you can't get the mixer to click into place, so be mindful of that, there is plenty of room in the container it's just how you put them in is what counts, it always takes me a couple of goes to get them sorted, but I will be making a mental note from now on how each one goes in the container.
