2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing exeprience overall Feb. 20 2010
We had this Black & Decker bread maker for about two years, baking a maximum of one or two loaves a week. Results initially were not good, (very few recipes came with the device), but tweaking the ingredients led to some very good results, although dough often rose right to the window, causing some cleaning challenges. Unfortunately the sealed bearings around the drive shafts of the two paddles have now both given up, one almost completely and one well on its way. The paddles became very hard to turn and the sound of the machine while kneading changed, so listen for a motor that seems to be working harder, or try and turn the paddles with the pan out of the machine. There should definitely not be too much resistance. A clue might also be that dough starts heaping up more to one side than the other, with very skew loaves as the result.

As these ruined bearings will just burn out the motor, I searched for parts on the Internet to replace them before this happens. Of course parts are not available, the closest I could get was a complete used non-stick pan from eBay, but who knows what those bearings look like. Price was almost what we paid for the bread maker too, so looks like this will go in the trash can. The lid also began to discolour very quickly, probably a different kind of plastic than the body.

If you have one of these, make very sure not to keep water in the non-stick pan for long to soften the hard bread crusts around the shafts, as this may accelerate deterioration of the bearings due to the poor quality seals.
I would not buy this at the regular price, although a sales price may be worth it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Love this machine Feb. 5 2010
I love mine, I use it several times a week and I have made a variety of loaves and doughs with it, as well as jam. It does have a wait period before it starts, to allow all the ingredients to come to room temperature before it starts mixing. I have yet to find fault with it, except for the size, but given that it is a 3 lb machine I fully expected it to have a big footprint. It isn't that much bigger than my old BD machine, and it's light and easy to handle and clean. For the price, it's a great machine.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic, can't live without it! March 30 2010
I love this breadmaker! I have had it two years and use it at least once a week and it is still going strong. I love that it has a warmup cycle at the beginning so you don't have to worry as much about the temperature of the ingredients as you do other breadmakers. I have made dozens and dozens of loaves of bread, I use it for making dough for pizza and other fabulous loaves too. Seriously, I can not understand why it has gotten such bad reviews. I just can't live without it and if anything ever did happen to my breadmaker I would buy this exact one again. It is one of my favourite kitchen tools ever!

2.0 out of 5 stars Can't buy more kneading paddles July 10 2013
By Carolyn
Verified Purchase
I have two of these bread machines. I think they make the very best bread. They are easy to use and do just about everything I have expected of them. My problem is parts. I lost one of the paddles. The parts distributor which is listed on the front of the manual, will not ship to Canada. I subsequently purchased a new pair of paddles on ebay. They were the only ones available for the B2300, but were the wrong size and didn't work. The supplier merely refunded my money, but could not tell me where I could get proper paddles. I've tried many many places. No luck. What do I do now?

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't buy it Jan. 18 2010
By Chris
This is the worst breadmaker I ever owned - and I've had a few. Not only is the bread inconsistent (and generally poor) but the build quality of the machine is terrible. After I used it 3 times one of the paddle mechanisms collapsed. The replacement machine creaks and groans during the kneading and I'm just waiting for it to fall apart. I have an old B&D vertical breadmaker which will be coming out of the closet to replace this. Black and Decker - what on earth happened to you?

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor quality Nov. 26 2009
Good points:
-It does make a good loaf of bread.
-The bread never hits the glass window (which is a pain to clean when it happens on other machines).

Bad points:
-Big and bulky (may not be an issue).
-It has a "wait" period before mixing dough that needlessly adds 20 minutes to the time it takes to make dough.
-Terrible durability; I have had it for less than a year and one of the two mixing paddles will no longer turn because of a broken drive motor or belt. (My previous bread machine lasted ten years of regular use)

4.0 out of 5 stars Does a great job. March 18 2013
By Michel
Verified Purchase
This is my second bread machine from Black an Decker, this model has two blades to mix the dough for a nicer texture of bread. When I use the bread machine for the first time I was surprise because the machine have a 15 minutes delay before starting, during that time period the machine warm up the dough preparation. if i compare to my basic bread machine from B&D the new one seam more quieter. Amazon has the best price with free shipping to top it up.

Con: I was expecting the blades to mix in two different directions ( clockwise and Counterclockwise ) to give an even better texture dough, like and other model of bread machine with tow blades from B&D.

Final words, don't spend more money for a bread machine, this model deliver a very good quality bread and the pan, the bread cook in is of a more regular size bread, than the basic (one blade)B&D bread machine I highly recomand this
bread machine from Black & Decker.

This gets lots of use in our house - about a loaf a day! But there is so much more that you can do with it than just make bread. We make dessert, jam, and lots of other things. Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars Works well
What to say other then be aware that the 15 minutes delay for the 8th setting (dough) is more like 25 minute delay however, once it gets going, it works perfectly. Read more

1.0 out of 5 stars Not powerful enough
Using one of the suggested recipes that were included with the machine, I found it kept stopping while kneading. I had to help it along. Even adding more water didn't help. Read more
