I made a Mistake
24 August 2012
Summary: This review is about the Black and Decker All in one Horizontal Deluxe Automatic bread maker model B2300 .I just bought this bread maker a week ago and it took two minutes after making my first loaf of bread to realize I had made a major mistake. Directions in the manual are horrible.
Summary: Within the first few uses the clamp rings (small metal c shaped washers) that hold the paddle post to the bread pan from the underside broke off. The entire machine is rendered useless without them.
Summary: This is my 3rd Black and Decker bread machine over the last 13 years. The first one was great absolutely loved it and it lasted almost 8 years. The second one also great no real complaints except for the recipe book so used the original book. This machine however is terrible.
Summary: Do not buy a bread machine if you like inexpensive store-bought generic bread (or if you are not well-disciplined in restricting your intake of superb-tasting bread). It is not worth the cost or effort.

Summary: I bought this breadmaker a year ago for myself for my birthday and could 't be happier with it. Unlike other models, this one gives you a 15-minute warm up period so you do not have to worry as much about the temperature of the ingredients as you put them in to the machine.
Summary: I received one of these for a gift and absolutely love it. So I bought one for my mom. First time out of the box and it starts smoking when turned on. Black & Decker wants her to pay shipping for a new one. Wrong way to do business!! Bad customer service!
Summary: On the first attempt to use this product smoke started coming out of the vents and the paddles stopped mixing the bread. I ended up with a lovely baked pile of dried flour with mush at the bottom. The machine was then completely dead.
Summary: I used my old Black & Decker breadmaker for years and never had a problem, unfortunately it died. I bought the Model B2300 several months ago and I absolutely hate it. First, the settings are difficult to figure out, second it burns every loaf on the outside and the inside is doughy, inedible.
Summary: I have owned and used several bread makers in the past, but I was attracted to this machine for several reasons. (1) Good past experience with Black and Decker Bread Makers, (2) it uses a horizontal pan verses the older style vertical ones, (3) has the ability for large loaves (upto 3lbs).
