I received this bread maker for Christmas and since then have stopped buying bread from the store. I've made probably a good 20-30 loaves so far and love this machine. It works well with sweet breads like cranberry walnut, panettone, cinnamon swirl, honey oat bread and nicely with artisan breads if you use the dough setting then bake in your oven for breads like sourdough or french. I've also used this bread-maker to make pizza dough and monkey bread( for breakfast) and have found that literally the possibilities are endless. Plus, with your bread-maker you can control what goes into your bread, so you know exactly what you are eating and feeding your family. I use all organic, all natural, local products and have found that you can easily sub in wheat germ, gluten free ingredients, honey (instead of sugar), control salt and eliminate partially hydrogenated oils, corn syrups and all the other unhealthy ingredients that plague many store-bought products today. So I urge anyone thinking about a bread-maker to buy this one its worked out really well in my kitchen and I hope you will enjoy it, in yours as well. Not to mention, for this price, you can give it a shot, because you won't find a better deal than Overstock.
Great buy for the $$$. Use it once a week with great results

I bought this for my daughter and she LOVES it! She made 2 loaves the first day she received it and has made a loaf about every other day. She says it is so easy and the bread is wonderful. Her next experiment will be to make a bought mix. She also states making the bread is more cost efficient than purchasing a loaf from a grocery. She would recommend it to anyone looking for a good machine. I was very pleased with the price and apparently as she raves, it was the best machine for the money.
I love this breadmaker.I have been making bread ever since I got it .I can make healthy ,organic breads for my family and homemade croutons when the bread doesn't all get eaten right away . It comes with a recipe book and the directions are easy to follow.There's an express baking cycle that takes only 58 minutes to make a loaf of bread! I would highly recommend this product and I may order another one to keep the bread coming even faster.I don't know why I didn't buy one sooner!
I love this bread machine. It delivers perfect results every time (I make three loaves of bread a week) and is simple to use. Even better, the bread comes out of the pan with a quick tap on the counter and everything is easy to clean. This is a terrific product at a terrific price!
This breadmaker is great and easy to use. I've never made bread before, so it sounded like something new and fun to do. Even being new to baking bread, everything came out perfectly with this machine. If you're in the market for a breadmaker, this is the one to go with, hands down.
Received the bread maker wonderfully packed and shipped. Was anxious to use so went out immediately to get bread flour. The process was very simple and the bread was delicious. Was very happy with the performance of the bread maker, choices of bread, crusts and time. Would recommend this to anyone who is interested in making their own bread. It was better than expected.
I received the machine quickly from Overstock. I used it right away. The bread machine preformed wonderfully. When my old Oster machine died (circa 1996), I looked at all types of models. I wanted a machine that made horizontal loafs. This model does that. I hope to be as happy with the new Oster as I was with the old. I can see where some people might think the machine loud, but I did not think it was any louder than my old one. Also, I did not see the unit jumping, or wiggling around on the counter top as some other reviewers mentioned. I'm happy with it. I called Oster's customer service to talk about conversions of old bread recipes. The man at Oster was very helpful. I give Oster an A+.
We bought this breadmaker because a friend got it for Christmas and they were quite pleased with it. Have made two loaves so far and they have turned out to be quite good. The only aspect that I would have preferred to be different are either more recipes for smaller size loaves. The 2 lb loaf turns out to be quite a tall load. I may have to experiment with scaling back a 2 lb recipes down to a 1 lb recipe.
