A brief history of the company

Originally Sunbeam stared out importing sheep-shearing equipment in the 1880s, but Sunbeam has been in the appliance game for over 100 years.

It all began in 1910, when Sunbeam began importing the Princess Electric Iron from the USA; so they could still make some money when it wasn’t shearing time. This iron was so popular that they began importing more and more, changing ironing forever

It wasn’t until 1948 that they introduced their first original product: the Sunbeam Mixmaster. After that, they introduced the shavemaster in 1952; it was an Australian electric shaver.

From there, they continued to invent new products and improve on old ones, to make their products as smart as they can be.

But it wasn’t until 2001 that they introduced the café series, which included coffee machines. Their coffee machines went onto win awards in the following year.

Since then, the stream of new products has continued with BBQs, cupcake makers, coffee machines, and many other improvements to some other their classic appliances.
