My chefmate bread machine is one of the best gifts I have ever received. I received it for my birthday a year ago and haven't looked back. As a stay at home mom, I am always looking for ways to save my family more money and a bread machine was a perfect, creative way to do so. Now, instead of purchasing loaves of bread, pizza dough, biscuits, etc, we make them in the bread machine! I LOVE it and we have saved a ton of money doing this! This Chefmate bread machine has several good bread/dough options and is very easy to use. Clean up is a sinch as well! I have never tasted such perfect bread than what comes out of my Chefmate bread machine. While it may be expensive, it is well worth your money. I promise you won't be disappointed.
