In the past I only made bread every couple weeks because of the time and work involved. I was able to simply make half of my recipe and it turned out exactly as it always had. I can now make bread every day if I want to! Best kitchen purchase I have ever made!
Overall, a great bread machine. The bread tastes great. The machine is easy to use. There are many recipes for different types of bread included. The cinnamon swirl is great! Definitely suggest using the "light" option for all though. Even on the light setting, the bottom and sides do come out a little hard. Not a big deal, I just cut the bottom and sides off. Not a whole lot of loss, and the rest of loaf is perfect.
Used the bread maker first day. So excited! BUT, the menu indicator lights/functions did not operate correctly. The bread turned out ok, but not exactly as planned. Have made bread since and still had operational problems. Guess I'll just make it from scratch the old fashioned way.
