I tend to use my bread machines 3-4 times a week(or more) and I have worn out several over the years. So far this seems to be one of the best that I have owned in terms of its features and versatility. Love being able to preset and time the Dough cycle since I frequently let the machine do the mixing and then I take out the dough and finish it myself--this is the first machine that has had this feature. Will have to wait and see how long this machine holds up...
I'm very happy with this bread machine! I've used several of the bread cycles as well as the dough cycle and all have worked great.
Another reviewer mentioned that the kneading paddle is weak... I haven't noticed this problem. Although the pan is not dishwasher safe, I haven't had any problems with bread or dough sticking so the clean up is still a breeze! There isn't an on/off switch but I would unplug my machine anyway after each use so I don't find this to be a problem.
The recipe book this machine comes with isn't too great but it's not difficult to find a plentiful supply of bread machine recipes online so it's not really a big deal. All of the recipes I've used, I've found elsewhere.
With this bread machine you can decide what level of darkness you want your bread; this is great as I don't like crust that's too done! Also, the delay feature is wonderful!! Fresh baked, warm bread with breakfast or dinner... it just doesn't get any better!
Overall, great machine! :)
It gets the job done and it's a good value, but it has a few drawbacks prospective buyers should know about.
First, the kneeding paddle is very weak. It's designed to slip when it encounters too much resistance, so sometimes it only moves a quarter inch per second. You have to add extra water to some recipes to keep the dough soft enough for the machine to be able to mix and kneed it.
Second, it has no off switch. The control electronics are always on whenever it's plugged in. This makes it vunerable to power surges 24-7 unless you plug it in and unplug it constantly.
Third, you can't run the bread pan through the dishwasher. The manual explicitly says this will ruin the non-stick coating which will make it impossible to get the bread out in one piece. The idea of a bread machine is to reduce labor, so having to hand-wash the pan every time was an unpleasant surprise.
I have used 3 bread machines before this one, but this one is by far the best. Haven't had a single failure since using it. It is very nicely priced for the quality!
works fine. However, found that the recipe book was not as good as other mfgs. Found that the bread fell apart and discovered that they omitted dry powdered milk. Changed to different recipe and works fine

If you can't finish a fresh-baked loaf of bread within a day or two, slice with a serrated knife and then freeze in a plastic bag. Then, you can just pull out a slice or two to toast whenever you'd like. Using slices of frozen bread is also a great trick when making sandwiches for brown bag lunches. The frozen bread keeps lettuce crisp, and the bread will be perfectly defrosted by lunchtime. Just be sure to wrap in foil, not plastic, so it won't become soggy.
