Put It On The Line
S. Kamran "SAK767": Tell you the truth; I was little skeptical about any bread making machines, never tried one before, this came into my Amazon.com Gold box and we thought what the heck???, ohh man I should have bought it earlier. True Idiot proof system, just put flour, water salt/sugar and yeast, press one button and voila !! you have a crisp, HOT from the oven; fresh baked bread.Have you ever noticed that how many chemicals are included in store brand bread; just to keep it tender for shelving purpose, now I am not worried about that any more.I bought a bag of 20lb; all purpose floor for about $4.79 and guess what???? I can make more then 20-25 breads out of that on bag�.cool isn�t it? Not to mention the versatility and ease of having fresh bread, cakes and jams. The best part is that I add all ingredients in bread maker at night, set the timer and woke up every morning with the smell of fresh baked bread.
Stephen Foster: I haven't bought bread in years, and thought that my $50 Welbilt was the be-all-and-end-all. But I wanted more, like programmability and a removable dough hook. I was not expecting the difference that this machine delivers.First, it's well-built, unlike the mostly-plastic Welbilt. Mine was a 75% off demo that someone had stolen the dough hook from. No problem ordering a couple of replacements. When I finally cranked it up, I was rather stunned at the difference. It's extremely powerful, and the single paddle reverses itself at regular intervals, making it unnecessary to help it along with mixing - I have a little experience with machines with double dough hooks, but I fail to see the need.My son and I first made our favourite bread - buttermilk cheddar. We even dared to set it up overnight. So we had a lovely breakfast, but what got my attention was the perfect, fine-grained texture that had been missing before. The crust was a little over-baked, so I customized the recipe for the second batch (freedom!) and it came out honey-blonde and perfect.To customize, you have to start with a standard recipe, but that's no problem - you can change every last detail to whatever you wish. The instruction book comes with a helpful table that explains the various timings of all the programs.Overall, just very happy. Of course you have to check the texture of the dough at the beginning, adding tiny amounts of flour or water to get it perfectly tacky, not too wet or too dry. Here's how to do it even though you're setting it up overnight:Add all the ingredients except the yeast. Let it mix for about ten minutes, then check the texture. Add water or flour as needed, one tablespoon (or less) at a time, until the mixture is smooth and only slightly tacky to the touch.Reset the machine to the beginning of the cycle and set up the timer. Cut a 1" circle of wax paper and poke it down into the top of the dough to form a container for the yeast. Spoon the yeast into the wax paper, and go to bed. When I first came up with the idea, I expected to eventually bite into baked wax paper, but it vanishes without a trace, and the yeast stays dry until the timer clicks on.One gripe: like every other bread machine, the display comes without a backlight - you need a flashlight to see what you're setting it to.
Sweet Pea "Sweet Pea": I am an experience bread machine user having owned several bread machines over the past 25 years. My TR2200 Breadman Ultimate died last week. I do have a spare one for backup use.I decided to buy a new machine to accompany my spare one. I bought the TR2500BC Stainless steel. WHAT A PIECE OF JUNK! It is cheaply made, noisy, the pan is much smaller than the original machines and the paddle sticks in the baked loaf of bread even when sprayed with cooking spray.I have made 3 loaves of bread using my original recipes and one that came with the machine. They are mis-shaped, under baked with a doughy texture and heavy as lead. I am returning this piece of junk to Target tomorrow.I am so sorry they discontinued the TR2200 machine, it was a real work horse. I loved it so much I bought my 2 daughters each one and recommended it to my 3 Aunts who purchased them. Now I am not sure what to purchase. I dread experimenting with different brands of machines only to be disappointed again.Sorry but I can not give the TR2500BC a favorable rating. I would not recommend this to anyone.A very unhappy customer.
T. Adlam "professional consumer": Nearly a week was spent looking through feature sets, reading reviews, and considering price points when I finally decided on the Breadman Ultimate T2200C. That decision was made just under a year ago. Waiting a year to leave my review was intentional; I understand the draw of new, shiny toys and in all the excitement, it's easy to lead prospective buyer's astray with incomplete reviews. That said, let's get started.Being a bread making novice, I found the included instructional video to be invaluable, though it might have been prudent to include a DVD as opposed to VHS tape, considering current technology trends. Watching it once was enough to get started making my first perfect loaf of bread. It showed precisely how to add the ingredients, gave some tips for better bread making, and went over the general functions of the machine.Things were glorious for the first few months, the aroma of fresh bread wafting through the house. Making, on average, one to two loaves per week, I became known as the bread lady. People were coming from far and wide to sample my goods. (OK, maybe not far *and* wide, but I did get nick-named the bread lady.)Then, the problems started...One morning while some dough was kneading, I heard a loud clang and suddenly it sounded as though bombs were going off in my kitchen. Springing up from my office chair and sprinting to the kitchen, I saw that the bread pan had come loose and the machine was jostling itself perilously close to my counter's edge.After pausing the machine, repositioning it, and pressing the bread pan back in place, all seemed well again. Too bad it didn't stay that way for long. Future incidents increased and soon, the bread pan refused to properly lock in place. This significantly impacted the amount of bread I made, which dropped down to one to two loaves *per month*. A year later, the bread pan staying in place is truly a hit or miss.With Thanksgiving nearing, I decided it would be nice to have fresh bread with our turkey. The Breadman decided otherwise. I plugged in the machine and nothing happened. The beep of mechanical life was absent and the screen was totally blank. I tried pressing buttons and followed the instructions in the manual (which are really vague when it comes to this problem), yet nothing. (This wasn't the first time, either. Though, I should be clear, the previous cases were few, sporadic and non-disruptive.)The day before Thanksgiving and my bread machine refused to even acknowledge the presence of electricity -- I was beside myself. Many people were promised fresh bread and I surely wasn't about to touch a conventional oven. My only recourse was to head out into holiday traffic and snag a $40 deal from Wal-Mart -- nowhere near the same quality of bread, unfortunately.Suddenly, after allowing it to sit unplugged for another three days, it sprang back to life. Unfortunately, it did so with a customer service rep on the phone and it left me with a bit of egg on my face. No matter, I discussed the issue of the unstable bread pan and she gave me some tips. Basically, she said it was my fault - or rather, my bread dough's fault. Funny, considering my bread dough hasn't changed *at all* (I use the exact same recipe each time) in the year I've been using the bread machine.At the end of the day, the bread machine still works, but I don't know for how long, the bread pan is unstable, and the customer service was unable to do anything for me after the 10 minute wait to speak with a human. One would think that a year's use from a bread machine that costs $xx is a pretty good value, but it's not the case. By my calculations, when I consider the cost of the machine, ingredients and the number of loaves I've made, it comes out to be just under $10/loaf. Had I known that was the value I'd be getting, I'd have stuck with store bought for $3/loaf.Although the machine makes absolutely beautiful bread, the cost versus quality just doesn't stand up to the test of time. If you plan to make a number of fancy breads, need a machine that produces amazing baking results, or can justify the high cost per loaf, this is a great tool. But be aware that it may not stand up to the test of time or the wear and tear.
Texman: I was given this bread machine and it was used but well cared for but the instruction manual had been misplaced. So having never made bread before I looked up a recipe on the internet and did what it said and surprise-really perfect bread the first time, and the next, and the next. This machine does the work and does it at the right time. Real cooks, which I am not, tried my bread and all said it was better than they could make themselves. I like how the control panel lets me know what is happening, mixing, kneading, rise cycle, baking and it has a window to let me peek in and see it working. If I can make homemade bread with this, trust me, any one can-it is that easy.
