I love this bread machine. It is the first bread machine I have ever owned, and I bought it based on the high recommendations of other users who have posted reviews on this website. I have never had any luck at all when it comes to baking bread. Plus, now we are living in Belize City, where the bread is AWFUL!! I decided to purchase a machine so we could have fresh bread that tastes good.
The machine is very easy to use, and makes a nice loaf of bread. I have made several loaves already, and they have all come out really good. I have followed all the recipes exactly, and have not had any problems at all. The only thing I don't like about it is that the bread bakes with the little paddles in it. They aren't very big, but they do leave holes in the bottom of the bread slices once it is sliced. I read that it is possible to remove them before the baking cycle begins, but I have not attempted it yet.
Also, every time I have ordered from Cooking.com, my order is shipped very quickly. I was pleasantly surprised to receive my package within one week of placing my order, which is almost unheard of, even to an APO address in another country. I will definitely order again from cooking.com, and recommend it to others.
