I absolutely love this West Bend 2-Pound bread maker. It is perfect for making homemade breads, and I use it on a weekly basis. I also love using it to make homemade breads to give out as gifts during the holidays. It is a tad bit expensive, but it is worth every penny. I would recommend this bread maker to anyone who is looking for a reliable machine. Stability While in Use Like all of the other bread machines I have owned in the past, it does vibrate a little while it is in use. However, it shakes a lot less during the baking process than my other machines have. Performance I love how my bread always comes out fully baked, and it always has a nice, crispy crust on the outside while remaining chewy and soft on the inside. Ease of Use I really enjoy how easy this machine is to use. The instructions that it comes with are really easy to follow and understand. Durability I have owned this bread machine for three years now, and I will admit that is extremely durable and sturdy. I use it multiple times each month, and I have not had any problems with it.
