This machine is compact, well-designed and extremely simple to use.
...Update, 1 Sept 2013--still working just fine. I've baked at least 125 loaves by now, and they've all been fine. A couple of times I've failed to remove the loaf from the machine on time and I've had to contend with a rather thick crust, but that's hardly the fault of the machine. And I can now put a loaf on in about 3 minutes, and buying the yeast in bulk I've got the cost down to under 15 pence a loaf.
...Update, 26 Sept 2014--another year of faultless service, despite my dropping it on a tile floor with hot bread still inside. This bent the base, but I was able to straighten it by putting it over a piece of 2x2 in my workmate and tapping it gently with another block of wood. The teflon wasn't damaged. Although you can still see traces of the creases, it sits perfectly level. Now I'm careful to wrap my fingers (and a tea-towel) around the bail whilst removing a hot loaf from the machine! Also, the paddle was sticking on the shaft, which saved the problem of extracting it from the hot loaf, but made it difficult to remove for proper cleaning. Fortunately, I found a tiny brush that worked a treat for removing the built-up carbon inside the paddle, and now it's fine.
So few things we buy these days are really well-designed, functional and durable that I am more than happy to take the time to update my recommendations. It's a pleasure to own.
The beeps which let you know when to add extras (dried fruit, herbs, etc) and 'finished' can be heard on the other side of our flat, which means we don't need to eyeball the clock. They also beep 10 times so if you didn't hear it the first time, you'll hear one of the subsequent 9 beeps.
I have made many loaves using the instructions included in the manual (there is one recipe for each setting) and have followed the pattern to make doughs and loaves from various cookbooks without fail. Make sure you use a nice strong flour, and follow the layering instructions (water, salt, oil, flour, sugar, yeast) and you'll make great bread without fail.
Also, the machine comes with a hook which I eventually figured out how to use. One end is a big open circle, used for lifting the baking container inside, the other side is like a small 'L' and is used to remove the paddle mixer from the removed loaf.
Would highly recommend!
I followed the recipe for a French loaf as my first attempt, and it exceeded my expectation. It was very crusty, light and tasty, but I didn't expect the mixing/kneading paddle to be buried inside the loaf. Extracting it led to a substantial chunk of the loaf base being pulled away, leaving at least one third of my first effort unfit for crusty cheese and tomato sandwiches. I'm not at all sure how to avoid this problem in the future.

Have to say i'm quite disappointed with this product. The prep & bake time are horrendous, some 3-4 hours so if you want a fresh loaf in the morning you either have to re-schedule... Read morePublished 17 days ago by jacqueline hill
I only give this 3 stars because the description is wrong. Whilst it says "1 lb Loaf" the recipe calls for 320gm of flour which is definitely not 1 lb. Read morePublished 1 month ago by DeeTee

Fantastic little machine that performs consistantly well. We use it often and the small loaf is perfect for 3 people. We would never eat a larger loaf so this is ideal. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Lynne Blair
