I bought this book when I bought my bread machine. I really love the variety of recipes in this book. I have tried two recipes already that are really very easy to make and easy to follow. I also like the feature that it has a spiral binding and lies flat!

when I bought my bread machine a year ago I was really excited about buying a cookbook to try it out. I found so many books, and most of the reviews said "buy this one it's the best", or "you won't need another one"... I got all confused. So, since I have most Betty Crocker cookbooks, I choose this one, 'cause I know they only have try and true recipes. In fact, it didn't let me down.
The book starts with an introduction about bread machines in general, how they work, and ingredients. It has a chart with all kinds of flours and teaches you what kind of bread you'll get.
Then the recipes. Including here, classics like white bread, Sally Lunn, garlic bread. New ones like orange capuccino brad. It has one of the best bagel recipe.
It's divided in 7 chapters:
Chapter 1: Good and Savory loaves
Chapter 2: Wholesome Grains Loaves
Chapter 3: Fruit and Veggie Harvest Loaves
Chapter 4: Smaller Can Be jst Right
Chapter 5: Rustic Loaves and Flatbreads
Chapter 6: Satisfying Rolls and Breadsticks
Chapter 7: Sweet breads and Coffee Cakes
The book has plenty of pictures, and this, especially for a beginner, is pretty important to know what it will look like the bread you are gonna bake.
A year later, I find myself still using this fantastic book and having excellent results. It has over 130 recipes so it's impossible to get bored.

This cookbook is full of helpful information for beginners, and features pages about humidity, sea-level, the best and worst types of flours, yeast substitutions, as well as depictions of common mistakes and outcomes supplied helpfully by pictures. There are tips and suggestions with every recipe, and sometimes even a companion recipe, such as a spread, or sandwich combination. The recipes look fantastic, and I just pulled a coffee cake out of the oven, and couldn't be happier with my purchase! Money well spent!

I've tried over 2 dozen recipes from this book and they all turn out great. I use the Oster Expressbake and especially like the chapter for smaller, 1 pound recipes. I occasionally have to add a bit of water or a pinch of flour in the initial mixing phase, but think that it depends on the humidity here (North Carolina). Overall, I've been happy with every recipe I've tried from this book.

I've used a bread machine for the past 5 years (2 actually I wore out the first). This cookbook has a wonderful format and a nice variety of breads and rolls to choose from. It has become my favorite gift to give friends who have bread machines. One thing that I do that give better texture is to use the dough cycle on my machine and bake it in a regular oven. That way I get a regular sized loaf with a nice soft crust.

I ordered this because I have a bread machine. There are several recipes I wanted to try but for some reason the book differentiates between the vertical loaf and the horizontal loaf. So for some of the recipes I wanted to try, the book indicates it cannot be made in a horizontal pan which is what I have.

This book has so many items and is very easy to use. I needed this to use my machine. Other books were more money but this was worth every penny.

I have tried a half dozen recipes from this book so far and I've liked only one of them (Sally Lunn). The pictures are beautiful, the spiral binding is great but the recipes I've tried are mediocre. Maybe it's just me or my machine (Breadman), but recipes from my other cookbooks tend to taste better.
