great machine for the price. easy to use, clean and the customer service from HB is wonderful. Beware that the booklet does not match the paddles that are included (2). There are NO arrows embossed. this resulted in me loading it upside down and scraping off the the nonstick coating. I contacted HB and they sent me a replacement bread pan liner immediately with an apology. I only rated the value as Good due to the fact that **** has it on sale (the white one) for $***. I purchased the black because it was cheaper.
I bought this bread maker even though one friend said"no" but the other friend really baked and brought the fresh baked bread to work and all coworker liked it. so i bought and baked it. but it turned out kind of "dry ". So i changed the recipe little bit. i put little bit less bread flour and put 2 eggs, put 4 tbs oil,4 tbs sugar instead of 3 tbs. 3 tbs of sugar .also i used reg milk instead dry milk and water. it turned out lot softer than you baked as original instruction. It dries very fast in out side of container , I recommend to consume right there ,do not save for later. I will cook with water later and see how it will turn out. For the little tip, bread flour 's price s are vary. i paid $5.50 for 5# bag. At cosco, $8 for big bag( my friend said) you can use about 20 times.
I must have looked over numerous bread machines a dozen times and by several online distributors. The Overstock description was concise and and the other reviews helped me decide to select this merchandiser even though the item was several dollars more than another well known internet provider. So far the machine has performed a perfect "10" and several ladies were so impressed with the glazed fruit bread results they were going to order this machine when they got home. I must say the bread turned out better than that of many specialty bakeries. I made a 2-pounder and by that evening it was gone! Can't get any better than that! Price isn't always the winner in deciding a product it's how the reviews are presented along with the manufacturer's or in this case Overstock.com presentation of the product's capabilities. Good on ya, keep up the good work.
One of my friends encouraged me to get a bread machine since she was sending me recipes that needed dough. I researched several brands and decided I wanted to have the "add fruit/nuts" selection. I have made many things in it since and it has never disappointed me. It makes the kitchen smell so good. It has 12 selections including jam (I haven't tried that yet). It does take up a large chunk of cabinet space but I had the room. Between this bread machine and my KitchenAid stand mixer I feel I can do almost anything in the kitchen. The price was reasonable on Overstock and I highly recommend it.
I ordered this bread maker to replace an old one - I did think it would be smaller than it was, but bread makers are just big appliances to have. I tested it by baking a standard 2-lb loaf of white bread. Came out perfect! I also made pizza dough that was perfect (recipe makes enough for a 16-inch pizza). Definitely recommend for the price!
