I love this bread machine, I mean absolutely love it. It makes having delicious homemade bread so easy. I don't have the time to always prepare fresh homemade bread and have the time to knead it once it rises nor do I have a long amount of time to wait for it, I'm a stay at home mom of 4 kids under 6 years old so I have to be very efficient with my time. Stability While in Use Very stable, I've never had any issues with it tipping over, you can tell it moves, but it doesn't shift from side to side or front to back or anything like that. Performance The performance is wonderful, it kneads the dough so nicely and then bakes it to perfection, the only thing I would change is the fact that sometime the outside gets really tough if you set it to the darkest setting but I use the medium setting most of the time and it's great. Ease of Use This bread machine is very simple to use, all you do is add your ingredients in pick what type of bread, the amount of bread, and what crust you want it to make and then just wait for it to do it's job, and that's it. The only difficult thing about it is the canister inside is sometimes hard to get out, and sometimes the dough mixer gets stuck in the bottom of the bread but it's still great! Durability Extremely durable, this thing stands up to anything you throw at it!
