Comments

I have a sunbeam mixmaster that belonged to my mother in law. It has a fraying electrical cord that needs to be replaced. It has 3 mixing bowls. One with a hole. I might have thrown away the directions when I was cleaning their apartment. The bowls are all marked Glassbake sunbeam on the bottom. Any idea of the circa? She kept it covered. I think it was more likely her mother's who did a lot more cooking and baking.
