I am not one to write a review too often but I just had to for this! I purchased this bread machine 3 weeks ago from Canadian Tire on sale for $49.99, regular price was $99. I actually wanted to get the Breadman machine but decided since it was on sale and I could return it if I wasnt happy, I had nothing to lose. Plus, it also had what I was looking for . . . gluten free cycle! My first EVER gluten free loaf turned out FANTASTIC !! It actually tasted like real wheat bread. My husband and even my 2 year old was eating it like no tomorrow. I have made several cinammon raisin ("Sweet Cycle") and regular whole wheat/white bread loaf . . . they all turned out amazingly delicious. The buttons / manual are easy to read/follow. I have never made loaf of bread until getting this machine. Today, I made whole wheat hamburger buns (they are cooling on the rack as i am typing this). Machine did all the work! You hit the "Dough" cycle and it mixes and kneads and takes it to the 1st rise. When done (it beeps) you shape the dough to how you want it (place it somewhere, let it rise again and then bake it in your oven). Its that easy! As long as I have this machine, I will not purchase a loaf of bread or hamburger buns again! Sure hope it lasts a while !
