I love this breadmaker. Its very easy to use and makes delicious breads. My main reason for wanting a breadmaker is that while I'm unemployed I have some extra time. Its very economical to make bread, and I figured out it costs about 80 cents a loaf! This breadmaker has all the settings you'd need including Whole Wheat, Artisan Breads, pizza dough, bake only, and even jams and cakes. I was concerned when ordering a refurbished one but when I got it it was brand new/un opened so I'm not sure if someone got it as a gift and just returned it or what, but I'm thrilled! I think I saved about *** buying refurbished with no downside.
