I spent some time deciding between this machine and the Panasonic (which was more $$). I only considered horizontal loaves and Im glad because they are still quite tall. Im very happy I chose this machine and didnt spend the extra money. Having a window really makes a difference to monitor whether or not to scrape the flour/dough down to make sure it all gets into the dough ball, and to make sure its not too sticky (or dry). Its also just fun to peek! Of course maybe the Panasonic does a better job kneading all the ingredients together without help Ill never know!
I was worried that the white-on-beige control labels might be a pain but I havent found them inconvenient (although it could be designed better with more contrast). The options and controls are pretty simple and straightforward and easy to get used to.
Ive made about 6-7 loaves and some rolls (dough cycle) and all have come out great. Although the daytime (monitored) loaves were more symmetrical than the overnight loaves, we were still very happy with the overnight loaves using the delay-timer.
Im looking forward to doing a pizza crust and maybe some breadsticks, but for someone like me who just wanted a good alternative to the bread you get in the store (plus the aroma in the a.m!) this is a great choice. I just hope it holds up for a while being used 2+ times a week. I make sure and push it WAY back on the counter (it does walk a bit) and I dont immerse the bread pan (per the instructions not sure why).
The biggest problem with our breadmaker? The bread is so delicious and we eat WAY too much bread now (the homemade loaves are sometimes gone in a day compared to store-bought loaves which hang around forever!) But were eating healthy, wholesome and delicious bread now (no calcium proprionate or other suspicious additives) and we couldnt be happier!

I love this bread maker! I have made numerous loafs of bread in it. Once you get the hang of it, it is very easy to manipulate some of the recipes to make them your own. I made a zucchini blueberry bread and it is sooooooooo delicious. It is cheap to make your own bread! I definitely recommend this product!

Fantastic breadmaker for the price. Basic functions, nothing real fancy, but it does exactly as its supposed to. I use it about once a week. Easy cleanup. Smaller footprint than previous breadmaker.
