Summary: I "accidentally" bought this machine for myself. It was actually supposed to be a Christmas present for my sister-in-law. I found out later that she already had a bread machine so I ended up keeping it. Wow! I'm so glad I did! This machine does every thing it says it does.
Summary: This was given to me as a gift. It was originally purchased from Amazon.com at an excellent price (under $50). I have had many bread makers over the years and this one performed well right out of the box. It is less expensive to make bread than buy for me. Plus, homemade bread isn't mostly air.
Summary: I used the product happily only one week (made three loaves of bread successfully). After one week, the bread machine will not heat the top part of the bread. And the top part will not fully rise and only half cooked bread on top. Now the product is only good for dough.
Summary: For 40 dollars it's not a bad machine. I haven't had another one before, so I have nothing to compare it with. The bread is fine, although I am not particularly impressed with the way it looks when the machine actually bakes it.
Summary: I have had this machine a little over a year now and had to replace the pan because the Teflon lining was peeling off. (I always take good care of my utensils - I have some pans and knives that are 40 years old in my kitchen, so it is not my failure at taking good care of it).
