Summary: I'm on my second machine - not because I like it so much but, rather, because the folks at Sunbeam sent me a new one when I complained about every loaf collapsing upon itself. The second machine, I am very sorry to say, behaves identically. It doesn't matter if I use less sugar or less salt.
Sunbeam 5891 breadmaker worth every penny and more

Summary: Don't let this breadmaker's low price fool you. It is well worth the buy. It's very easy to operate and full of special options. The dough feature has been especially useful for making pizza and rolls and the french cycle is an added bonus.
Summary: I have had this machine for a while now and I have to tell you my first view attempts left me dissappointed. It wasn't the bread machine at all but me and my clumsy measurements. It was very easy to follow the directions and put everything together in the right order but I like to throw things in...
Summary: This is my second bread machine. I usually make one or two loafs a week and this breadmaker well works for me. I've not had any problems with bread being too hard or crusty even though I leave loafs uncoated and let them cool on an open rack for several hours.
Summary: Every week I like to make my good solid "breakfast bread" with lots of whole wheat flour, oats, flax seeds, nuts, and fruits. And week-after-week, this little beauty from Sunbeam handles it flawlessly. [See the end of the review for some sad news.] Some of my favorite things...
Summary: Before I purchased this machine, I read ALL the reviews, the good, bad and the ugly. I realized there would possibly be some trials and tribulations with my first attempts at using it since I am not only a novice to breadmakers but also living in high altitude country.
Summary: We received our unit on Wednesday, and used it yesterday... first time bread machine owner. Overall bread making with a machine turned out to be far easier than I could have ever imagined, and actually me and my 4 and 8 yr olds made it all by ourselves and treated my wife with fresh bread.
Summary: I just got this machine and I've made 3 loaves of bread so far. The second one wasn't the best of all, but I manage to come up with a good recipe for 5 grain bread. Do not hesitate to get this machine. Unfortnately, you can't rely on the manual. Get a good recipe book. I love this machine.
Summary: First I must admit I am a complete novice. I had never even baked cookies in my life. However, I wanted to eat some fresh bread, and healthier bread (I don't like that store breads have like 20+ ingredients) So I researched for a relatively inexpensive breadmaker to try it out.
Summary: So far, so good! I've had this machine for a month now and have made about 10 loaves of bread. It works great and the bread tastes great. I do recommend using the light crust setting if you want your bread crust to be on the softer side.
