I have had this machine for over seven months now and , although the bread is O.K., I have yet to make a loaf which is easy to extract from the pan and, when extracted, is left with two gaping holes in the bottom. Either the spindles remain in the machine surrounded by the bread or are stuck in the loaf and not easy to remove.
I emailed two photos of the problem to the manufacturers asking them if this was a common occurrence but, surprise, surprise, they obviously chose not to reply
Definitely not a recommended buy in my opinion.
