Excerpt: About 10 years ago, my brother gave us a bread maker for Christmas. I remember being a bit nonplussed, thinking it was something we'd try a few times then end up storing it in the garage. I was wrong. We grew to love the bread from this basic appliance.

Excerpt: I bought this breadmaker from Amazon 4 months ago and it is all that I hoped for. I have had breadmakers before and found the whole process very hit and miss, but this machine is pretty much infallable. Instructions are simple, easy to follow. The recipes work.
