Review: Sunbeam Cupcake Maker

Published 06:02 am

This was certainly not a gift I was expecting. As a freshman in college the last thing I thought I needed was something that looked like a giant pink cupcake. I began playing with it yesterday and fell in love with it. I don't believe there is such thing as a 'perfect' product, but this sunbeam item came fairly close. I would recommend this to anyone. It is not appropriate for young children to try on their own, but it is an excellent activity to do with a parent. It is so nice for me as a college student to have this nice compact appliance, and it is so easy to use. That is the compact review, but for those who want more detail:

User Friendly?

Absolutely. I opened the box and was able to use the product within minutes. There was no real setup required for the actual machine, but of course the food items require preparation. The booklet has several easy recipes and great instructions too. The outside of the maker can get a bit warm, but there is a great place for lifting the lid up that never gets hot. The only problem I had was getting the cupcakes out of the spots without creating dents in the cupcakes, but these were very small, and with the right tool could be easily avoided.

High-quality Design?

This device is fantastically designed, both practically and aesthetically. The exterior is adorable as it is made to look like an oversized cupcake with pink and white frosting. They even added tiny details like sprinkles. As for the practical side, this product definitely has those bases covered too. The interior is made of a nonstick material so the paper cupcake cups slide right out. The exterior can get a bit hot; however there are insulated parts that can be used to handle the device easily. It is also safe to use right on a countertop!

How Does It Work?

It makes six cupcakes in ten minutes, and is most comparable to a George Foreman grill. It couldn't be any easier to use. The Maker takes a few minutes to warm-up, but have no fear, the indicator light on the front tell you when it is ready to bake. Once it is ready to go, simply put the cupcake papers into place, and pour cake mix in until they are between half and three quarters of the way full. Close the lid, and wait ten minutes. That's all there is to it.

What About Storage?

The Cupcake Maker is certainly not tiny, but it isn't too large either. It is super easy to put it back in the original box and put it under a counter, in a laundry room, or it could be left on the countertop. The choice is yours, but storage definitely should not be a deterrent in buying this great product.

Kid Friendly?

I wouldn't recommend this for kids unsupervised, until age twelve or thirteen, depending on the child, but once mature enough, it would be a great way to get kids off of computers and doing something.

Easy to Clean?

I was careful not to spill batter, so I didn't have too much to clean, but from what I did have to clean, it was very simple. The spilled batter baked so crisp that between it and the nonstick it wiped away cleanly.

Price?

Depending on where you buy it price might be different. I have only owned it a short time, so I do not know yet how fast it will wear and tear, but it seems to be very sturdy and high quality, so I would be willing to say it is worth the money.

Overall Grade

I would give this a ranking of an A-, mainly because the exterior does get a bit warm, and it isn't exactly the smallest appliance. I would give this gift to any of my friends, and recommend anyone else to do the same.
