"And it's so easy."

Having said that, it may be that the exposed element gives more even heat. It is compact, perfect for my tiny counter in the kitchen. First time I used it, I didn't warm the milk and used it right from the fridge. That bread however was still good and edible just too dense. So, with a few minor tweaks to the recipe, I made some really soft delicious bread. I have been baking most of my husband's bread for several years. Hopefully I'll get a photo next time before the bread is gone.

"It's worth owning."

I got it yesterday and used it right away. If you are in the mountains you will need to adjust any recipes you use. I've had my machine for only a few days and I'm cooking my 3rd loaf as I write. Of course I chose 2 recipes that had typos in them. So I tried this workaround- I did my usual recipe for a 1. Yes, it did smell funny a little bit, but they warned about that. After a couple frontier loaves, my wife wanted softer bread.

It mixes, kneads, rises and bakes it! It would make a wonderful Christmas, house-warming or wedding present. How can it be this stuck kind of stuck.

"Enough said."

The choices for your crust are light, medium and dark. This bread maker has a gluten free setting which works awesome. Nothing really sticks to it so a light soapy water and rinse cleans it every time. This is most certainly not the case with this machine. It can be removed with the business end of a corkscrew, no harm done. As it happens, that is definitely not a problem, the loaves fall out effortlessly. This is why, thanks to my son, we started calling it the Christmas miracle.

I like the yogurt feature and it works well. - Once you've got the hang of it, which you will pretty quickly, do experiment. Of course I chose 2 recipes that had typos in them.

That being said, I find all the squawks it makes when it changes cycle annoying. The control panel on the new one is lit up so it's much easier to see.

"After cooling."

I got it yesterday and used it right away. Picked this up for my wife for Christmas. - Don't mess with the machine, don't open the lid. Truly the easiest to use, just pour in your wet ingredients, then dry. The altitude of your geographical location makes a difference when baking! There were a few places where the English was a little odd, but not a big deal. Bread maker manual has some recipes in it.

I did all things asked before first use. I feel like I am dramatic by saying it changed my life, but it truly has. He has celiacs disease and must have a gluten free diet. Do your own research and make a smart decision. I have been making bread almost every day for the past two weeks. I'll update my post with pictures and a video later.

"It worked just fine."

It is a little big on my counter-top but since it's black it's not an eyesore. Every time I tried to make bread it would collapse on top. It is compact, perfect for my tiny counter in the kitchen. I also keep this machine unplugged when not in use. This bread machine is not loud while it is kneading the dough at all. Now let me tell you, I cannot make bread from scratch to save my life. I've also found recipes on King Arthur flour’s website.

I will note that I have NOT used the recipes in the book that came with it. I bought it because it had the smallest foot print. Hopefully I'll get a photo next time before the bread is gone. Also the hole on the bottom of the bread from the paddle isn't big at all. I have contacted the seller twice and received answers very quickly. I also keep this machine unplugged when not in use.

"We love this machine."

There is a problem with the mixing blade coming out of the pan inside the loaf. This bread machine is not loud while it is kneading the dough at all. I like the yogurt feature and it works well. So I tried this workaround- I did my usual recipe for a 1. If you are in the mountains you will need to adjust any recipes you use. I'm making French baguettes as I types this. Don't know why this is but avoiding the darkest crust setting seems to help.

"After cooling."

This bread machine the best Christmas present I have received in a long time. He has celiacs disease and must have a gluten free diet. The best bread machine I have had in 25 years of using bread machines. Nothing really sticks to it so a light soapy water and rinse cleans it every time. Loaves are thoroughly and evenly baked even on the light crust setting. As it happens, that is definitely not a problem, the loaves fall out effortlessly. I found some other machines you have to mix it or knead it first.

"Just get THIS ONE."

I looked at bread machines for months before making my purchase. The instructions are good, but I was overthinking this process and my first loaf was. It does detract from the looks of the bottom middle of the loaf, however. 5 loaf but on the machine I selected the 1. This is most certainly not the case with this machine. And the one of the most important- ALTITUDE and CLIMATE! The best bread machine I have had in 25 years of using bread machines.

I'm sorry that I can't review this machine on other settings. I feel like I am dramatic by saying it changed my life, but it truly has. Last downside to this machine and possibly the most annoying. There is a problem with the mixing blade coming out of the pan inside the loaf. I do this as well for my toaster oven and my air fryer. So I tried this workaround- I did my usual recipe for a 1.

"Not so good."

2nd, this is a good looking machine and goes well with my other stainless appliances. Then I turned to the white bread recipe in the manual. Currently as I write this review, the machine is making the French bread. A little Olive oil inside the paddle might help. I have been sent a much improved and reworded manual. That being said, I LOVE LOVE LOVE this machine. I also keep this machine unplugged when not in use.
