"I'm highly impressed."

Truly the easiest to use, just pour in your wet ingredients, then dry. It does detract from the looks of the bottom middle of the loaf, however. It does detract from the looks of the bottom middle of the loaf, however. This is most certainly not the case with this machine. I just have to dump my ingredients in and walk away. And the one of the most important- ALTITUDE and CLIMATE! The altitude of your geographical location makes a difference when baking!

West Bend 41300 Final Thoughts

"It's best to bake a 1."

There were a few places where the English was a little odd, but not a big deal. Having said that, it may be that the exposed element gives more even heat. I find that the loaf is a bit smaller than with other breadmakers I've used. I took a chance and it made a beautiful loaf of gluten free bread. I read all the reviews, if practical, including the bad ones. It is a little big on my counter-top but since it's black it's not an eyesore. The best bread machine I have had in 25 years of using bread machines.

"5 loaf to my family."

So, with a few minor tweaks to the recipe, I made some really soft delicious bread. To be honest, I'm pretty sure all the bread maker out there can do a decent job. If there is way too much flour I'm sure the bread won’t turn out. I also made a 1 lb loaf of pumpernickel and a dozen bagels, both perfect. I also keep this machine unplugged when not in use. The other tip I'll give is to make sure to measure flour properly. I read all the reviews, if practical, including the bad ones.

"And the 30 min."

After a month steady use, feels sturdy and look to like it will last. I'm making French baguettes as I types this. First time I used it, I didn't warm the milk and used it right from the fridge. I've also found recipes on King Arthur flour’s website. I use mine mainly for the smaller loaf of standard bread. I got it yesterday and used it right away. I just used it two times in a week period since I bought it.

"It's tall and short."

Do your own research and make a smart decision. Great if you want to know what goes in your bread. Our toddler loves the little window to see what is happening inside. Now let me tell you, I cannot make bread from scratch to save my life. First, I saw several reviews that said the bread maker didn't come with a paddle. We haven't purchased bread in a store since we purchased this machine. It would make a wonderful Christmas, house-warming or wedding present.

"It'a a win for me."

After a month steady use, feels sturdy and look to like it will last. That is sometimes a little easier but I still have a little bit of a hard time. I've also found recipes on King Arthur flour’s website. If there is way too much flour I'm sure the bread won’t turn out. It was my 1st time and 1st time owning a bead maker. I already did- KBS machine is a great buy, taking all above said in consideration! Overall, so far, I absolutely love my machine and so does my family!

"After cooling."

Then I turned to the white bread recipe in the manual. Bread maker manual has some recipes in it. I've been making my own bread by hand every weekend for close to a year. First, I saw several reviews that said the bread maker didn't come with a paddle. It does detract from the looks of the bottom middle of the loaf, however. - Once you've got the hang of it, which you will pretty quickly, do experiment. I have been baking most of my husband's bread for several years.

"Machine works great."

Hopefully I'll get a photo next time before the bread is gone. It would make a wonderful Christmas, house-warming or wedding present. It makes it very simple to produce great loaves. When choosing the machine, look for the versatility and options it offers. Don't know why this is but avoiding the darkest crust setting seems to help. This one has an interior light so you can actually see the bread through the window. I've had my machine for only a few days and I'm cooking my 3rd loaf as I write.

"0 lb loaf setting."

If you are in the mountains you will need to adjust any recipes you use. This machine has changed my life and is well worth the investment. I've had it for about a month now and have been making one to two 1-lb loaves a week. It does detract from the looks of the bottom middle of the loaf, however. You can't beat bread, fresh out of the oven. The altitude of your geographical location makes a difference when baking!

"Bread was wonderful."

Best of all, your bread will be tasty and satisfying. I have made several batches of jam in it and they all come out great. I love the process but it's time-consuming and the quality is not always consistent. I have the Cuisinart CBK-100 which I love and makes beautiful delicious bread. Do your own research and make a smart decision. I've had my machine for only a few days and I'm cooking my 3rd loaf as I write. That turned out really good and easy to make.

Tiger KBX-A100-W First Impressions

"It's worth owning."

I kind of don't like that there isn't an OFF button so I just unplug it. I have made 2 different breads before I set out to write this review. I bought it because it had the smallest foot print. If you are in the mountains you will need to adjust any recipes you use. I did all things asked before first use. I've had it for about a month now and have been making one to two 1-lb loaves a week. We are making bread almost every other night compared to one loaf week by hand.

"It turned out great."

Nothing really sticks to it so a light soapy water and rinse cleans it every time. That bread however was still good and edible just too dense. This is why, thanks to my son, we started calling it the Christmas miracle. This machine has changed my life and is well worth the investment. When choosing the machine, look for the versatility and options it offers. Better safe than sorry, as the saying goes. The old one you need to shine a light through the window.

If there is way too much flour I'm sure the bread won’t turn out. I got it yesterday and used it right away. It was my 1st time and 1st time owning a bead maker. Additional notes as of August 2020. It is a little big on my counter-top but since it's black it's not an eyesore. I feel like I am dramatic by saying it changed my life, but it truly has. But I can make it every time in this bad boy no problems!

I do this as well for my toaster oven and my air fryer. I choise KBS based on other reviews and the number of functions. Even despite of all of that, I got a very good bread! Well, this machine is all that I wanted it to be. Now let me tell you, I cannot make bread from scratch to save my life. Homemade dinner rolls, pizza dough, hot dog and hamburger buns are amazing!

So, as I said, this machine gives you tons of options! Also the hole on the bottom of the bread from the paddle isn't big at all.

It is compact, perfect for my tiny counter in the kitchen. So, with a few minor tweaks to the recipe, I made some really soft delicious bread. But I had time off around Christmas and started messing with it. This bread maker has a gluten free setting which works awesome. We are making bread almost every other night compared to one loaf week by hand. This bread machine is not loud while it is kneading the dough at all. It can be removed with the business end of a corkscrew, no harm done.
