This is the most awesome kitchen appliance I own! I had never made bread in my entire life, until I got this breadmaker. It is as easy to make bread, as it is to put something in my crockpot! You literally put the ingredients in, push the buttons, and walk away. Hours later you have fresh homemade bread! It is so simple to use.
I have used my machine many times and have experienced no issues, whatsoever. I was leary about ordering one on-line, but they don't sell them in the stores, as good as this one. It was a great investment and is so easy to use. Making bread is really cheap, too!
I love the delay timer. I can put the ingredients in the bread machine in the morning, before I leave for work, church, etc. and tell the machine what time to have the bread ready. It's really awesome! I can't imagine not having one, now! If anything ever happens to this one, I will be getting another one just like it. The automatic yeast dispenser and rest mode make the machine so simple to use. Your ingredients can be any temperature and you don't have to worry about the yeast activating too soon. It's great!
