This bread make was recieved as a gift and it has been a wonderful addition to our kitchen. The bread is easy to make and the taste reminds me of homemade bread my mother used to make.The varityof recipes available is outstanding, and the prepred mixes have a wide varity of selections. We enjoy wonderful aromas while the bread is baking and delightful taste when we eat the finished produt. And the loaves are about the right size for any occasion. In fact, I like this machine so much that I can find little fault with it to share. I would recommend this bread maker to anyone who enjoys bread and longs for a little home made product once in a while. I do not now what we did without it and do not care to find out again.
