I purchased this product many years ago and used it regularly for more than two years before packing it away. I recently "rediscovered" it and have again been using it regularly. For the price, it's a good little unit. The bread and dough turns out the same each time. I've had no issues with it, and would recommend it to anyone looking to get into bread machine use. It makes a good size loaf for two people and there are many recipes online from which to select.
