I can't remember when I got this bread machine, but I have had it for at least 15 years. I don't use it as much as I used to, but when I first got it I used it a few times every week. I only use it a few times a year now, but it still works great and I have had no problems with it. Stability While in Use This bread machine it very easy to use. You put in the ingredients and turn it on and in about 2 hours you have fresh baked bread. Performance Every loaf of bread I have baked in this machine has come out perfectly. I have baked white breads, wheat breads, and multi-grain breads and they have all come out perfectly baked and delicious. The only thing I don't like about this machine is that the mixing blade leaves a big hole in the middle of loaf. But it doesn't affect the taste. Ease of Use This machine is very easy to use. You put in the ingredients and choose the settings and turn it on and in about 2 hours you have freshly baked bread. It does all the mixing and rising for you. It makes bread baking fun! Durability I have had this machine for at least 15 years and have had no trouble with. It works great every time I use it and is very easy to clean.
