5.0 out of 5 stars More uses than you would think Oct. 30 2011
Verified Purchase
I purchased this item on a semi-whim several months ago wondering if I would ever use it: how many of us have not heard a couple whine that they've received a bread machine for their wedding and never opened it? And here I was, having never made a loaf in my life, with only 2 reasons for wanting one:
- That I happened to fall in love with a jalapeno-cheddar bread that regularly sells for 7$/loaf at the grocery store; and
- During a bout of insomnia, I had stumbled on a really cute HSN infomercial for the Command Performance Bread Maker that can still be found on YouTube for entertainment (red shirt on image preview).

After a few review-comparisons however, I settled on this particular machine because:
- Owners who previously owned other machines gave this one good reviews and tons of points for fluffiness (3 rise cycles);
- Reasonable price, decent look;
- Free shipping in Canada.

Well, turns out I have not eaten a bite of any other bread but my own since I got this. Now. Not all of my loaves have been perfect. Learn from my mistakes and AVOID:
- Maximum loaf size during insanely high heat and humidity: this makes the dough rise more and will stick to the lid;
- Throwing in dried fruit at the same time as the rest of the ingredients in a moment of distraction: bread will not rise AT ALL; and
- Like the other reviewer stated, opening lid during any moment besides add-in signal.

Still, 2 mishaps on my part for over 20 loaves, with perfectly edible results regardless, is not bad considering I'd never done this before.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Breadmaker Oct. 21 2011
I bought the West Bend 41300 breadmaker as a birthday present for my boyfriend (with the 'Betty Crocker Best Bread Machine Cookbook.) It's a well-made, good-looking machine & seems to work well. The first couple of loaves he made weren't that great but he figured out it was because we'd been opening the lid of the machine to check the progress while it was rising & baking. DO NOT DO THIS! It will cause the top of your loaf to sink, give it a very hard, brittle crust & make your loaf dense & heavy. If you want to peek at the loaf while it is baking, look through the window on the lid. This is not in the trouble-shooting section of the manual but should be - we just discovered it through trial & error. Otherwise, we have been very happy with this machine. The dual paddles mix the dough very thoroughly & it is surprisingly quiet during the mixing operation. We hope to enjoy many tasty loaves of bread with this breadmaker.

4.0 out of 5 stars Yum Jan. 12 2012
Very happy with this purchase. Shipping was fast and I was making bread quickly.

I have never owned a breadmaker before so I have nothing to compare it to but I like this one. The delay timer is very handy and it is very easy to clean.

The manual is not very clear on some things (like what is the 'process' button for?)but the recipies included are excellent.

The only con is the signal noise. It is very loud and goes off about 10 times. I can't actually see using this to cook bread overnight as the sound would probably wake the whole house. There does not seem to be away to turn it off.

Other than that I am very happy.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good breadmaker but pan won't last forever Dec 8 2011
By Tangara

The breadmaker itself is very good. I used it for over a year now, the only problem is the pan. After 39 bread, West Bend were nice to send me a new one under warranty. The teflon coating was quite a lot damaged, peeling off. So, be prepared to change the pan every 40-50 bread, more or less every year if you make bread regularly. I put 3 stars now because I would assumed the pan would last longer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Machine for the money. Sept. 21 2013
I have had several bread makers and was looking at a "Z" before this one, but decided against it because I couldn't justify the price of it. This machine seems to work the best of the lot because of the 3rd rise, in my opinion. I didn't buy it from Amazon because when I was going to, they hiked the price from $99.99cdn.to $119.99 cdn. within a few months while the price remained at $74.99 in the U.S. Home Hardware here in Ontario put this one on sale for $69.97, so I bought it there. This machine does all it says it does and more. The bread rises higher than the others and the paddles are easier to get out of the finished loaf than all my other ones. I'm very satisfied with my West Bend Machine and recommend it to anyone thinking of a bread maker.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy breadmaking Feb. 14 2012
Have had this machine for over a month now and have had no problems at all. I make about three or four loaves a week and they all turn out great. This machine is easy to use and easy to clean. It takes about three hours to make a loaf of bread. Can make 1,1 1/2, 2& 2 1/2 lb loaves but I stick with the 1 1/2 as I find all the others too big. I just use the Presidents Choice Organic all purpose or whole wheat flour in all my recipes and they turn out great. There is also a beeping signal in the second kneading stage as a reminder to add things like raisins to a raisin bread or seeds and nuts to a multi-grain. They impede the proper mixing if you add them in at the start. Just put all the liquid ingredients first, the dry ones on top, the salt around the edge (so it doesn't interfere with the yeast), yeast in a well in the centre of the dry ingredients and butter in all four corners, pick a loaf type and size and start. Easy! There are lots of great bread machine recipes on the internet too.

2.0 out of 5 stars Only works for a year!
We bought this machine twice. Both times they broke down after a year. They stop mixing the dough properly and it crumbles and falls apart. Before that, it worked great.
