8 months ago I purchased an Oster stand mixer. It died just when I needed it most. I had been asked to do all of the baking, including the breads, for a special party. As I was creaming butter, for my cakes the machine stopped dead. I , of course immediately notified Oster (Sunbeam is the parent company). It took then 10 days to FINALLY get back to me. So, not only is their Chinese made equipment bad, their service is even worse.
Do yourself a favor and never buy ANY product from Oster or Sunbeam. From now on I'll stick with Kitchen aid.
