Works very well and easy to use. ONE WARNING... follow the recipes exactly. Don't modify or change anything till you are extremely proficient with it. If it says 80 degrees Fahrenheit, don't just go by feel. Get a thermometer.  see moreof Raj's review

    The bread maker itself is worthy of 5 stars but the manual contains conflicting information and some recipes have obvious errors. For example, the smallest and largest size sandwich loaves have the same amount of yeast listed in the recipes. You have to increase the yeast to leaven the larger size l...  see moreof KJHKann's review

      I bought this specifically to make my bread dough with. I have never found a bread maker that makes the loaves the size for sandwiches. I make all my husband's sandwich bread so he doesn't get the abundance of chemicals that is in store bought bread. I love it!! Just put my ingredients in, be it...  see moreof Jan A's review

        I love my bread maker. This is my 2nd. one. I wore my first one out. And I bought the same brand the second time also. I highly recommend this brand of bread maker. One thing to note, the kneading paddles sometimes get stuck in the bread as it bakes, but if you spray the paddles with Pam or any kind...  see moreof Debbie's review

          It makes great bread, love the timer option so you wake up to the smell. I really like that it looks like a proper loaf shape. that makes big difference from my 1990's one. The instruction book is difficult to use. Silly as it would such a simple fix. I am going to write the steps on a note card.  see moreof Ruthy's review

            This bread machine provides a lot of value for your money. This the second West Bend bread machine I've owned: the first was retired only when it was so old that parts were unavailable. The improved paddle design on this newer model lets the bread release from the pan easily. I takes just a few minu...  see moreof Liz's review

              I really, really wanted to like this breadmaker as it checked all the boxes when I was searching to replace my worn out Breadman. My original breadmaker back in the 90's was a West Bend and I really liked it, so thought I'd give a try. I made four loaves of different bread from the recipe portion of...  see moreof Carol's review
