    Pros: Cheap
    Cons: bulky, uneven baking, poor design lid

    Summary: After 8 wonderful years of service my Citizen breadmaker was beginning to look like it needed replacing. Canadian Tire had this model on offer Boxing Week and I got it for a great price of $49.95 which unfortunately is the only great thing about it! ... read more

    Pros: It's white.
    Cons: Engineered for assured failure or maybe just abysmal quality control, either way it's awful.

    Pros: Nothing
    Cons: Everything

    Summary: This machine just *sucks*. Uneven cooking, and when you shake the loaf out of the pan, one paddle usually pulls a huge chunk of loaf out with it, while the other requires pliers to be plunged deep into the loaf to get it out. Moreover, ... read more
