Pros: Easy to use, nonstick pan, lots of cycles, great for beginners or pros!
Cons: Absolutely nothing and I've owned mine for 2 years! LOVE IT
I've had my bread machine for about 2 years now. When I first purchased it I never made bread in my life. It was so simple to operate. I fell in love! And here's why.
First, I love the fact that you can take out out bread pan and mix the put in the ingredients anywhere. I can bring it to a low table and have the kids help out.
Secondly, the directions are simple to understand. The recipes in the manual are easy to make if you don't already have some.
Thirdly..and most important to me. The whole wheat cycle is GREAT! I grind my own grains and this machine does a perfect job at kneading it perfectly. It also has a Home Made setting that gives you the option of personal settings.
Other options-jam maker, cakes, Dough Cycle.
The bread pan is nonstick and comes out simple and a cinch to clean.
