This is by far the best bread maker available anywhere. It is so easy to use & everything I have made in it has turned out great. I love that you can make different size loaves. It has so many options for types of bread or dough & even has a option for making jam or cooking foods like meatloaf! I have used the dough option for pizza dough, yummy garlic bread sticks, and other dinner roll types. I have made good old fashioned white bread, honey wheat, whole grain & even rye bread in it. I have baked tea style breads & cakes in it. The best cinnamon roll style bread ever is so easy to make. The bread pan is incredibly easy to clean. The most important thing to remember when using this machine is to be very accurate in measuring out ingredients & to make sure you put them in the right order, with wet ingredients always on the bottom. Plus it is worth every penny to spend a little more & buy really good bread flours & improvers. The recipe book included is extensive with easy to follow instructions. But I have found some really good recipe books for bread machines at the bookstore & online, which has expanded the use of this machine even more. This machine is worth every penny & more.
