CooksEssentials 2 lb. Bread Maker w/ LCD Controls
Got this after my Wolfgang Puck "died.". Wanted something smaller that made 1 lb. loafs and was going crazy because there are no breadmakers found in the retail stores. Watched the video on this and it looked like just what I wanted and had 5 star reviews. Well, make it another 5 star review. The recipes in the book are exact although I add wheat glutton and every loaf has been perfect. I made jam in it but used liquid pectin and it was amazing! Like that I can make smaller loafs so it does not go stale. Highly recommend this breadmaker. I did not think that I would like the vertical pan but found out I prefer it much more for slicing than the rectangle loaf pans. If you want a good breadmaker this is the one to get!
Love This Bread Maker & Also Love The Price
I have been looking around for one of these when I saw this one on QVC. I LOVE it!! Very easy to operate and all the things I have made are great!! I have other CooksEssentials products and they are all wonderful!!
great for those who are pressed for time
very intuitive to program, makes great bread with mixes, and minimal cleanup.
Have been looking for a bread machine awhile. Ordered this one because it looked easy to use. It is. Cleans up super easily too. Making homemade bread could not be made more simple and tastes soooooo good!
I've been through a number of bread makers and up to now thought the most expensive ones were the only good ones. I have ordered a number of cooks essentials bread makers in the past and either sent them all back or off to good will. I really didn't expect much this time (well the cost was most of the reason,) but what a surprise I mean "WHAT A SURPRISE" they have finally got it all together and this is a crackerjack of a machine. It has everything, takes up minimal valuable counter space, makes all three sizes of loaves, doesn't bog down when making heavy dough and very importantly, it does not walk off the counter when kneading the dough. The vertical bread pan makes the loaf just right for slicing into a toaster, -- even the manual is far better than in the past. I am thinking seriously about getting another one just for backup, the price is certainly right.
I love this bread maker. It's easy to use, easy to clean up. I haven't had any trouble with it. I recommend this product to everyone.
Have used it twice scine I got it and Love Love Love it. Perfect bread every time.
Love this machine !!!!!!
what a wonderful machine, makes excellent bread , and easy to use.
Bread for one
I bought this because of the small loaf size it will make. I live by myself now. I've tried it once since I received it and it was easy to operate. The next loaf I make I will put it on the lightest setting as the medium setting made the crust a bit dark and tough to chew. The bread itself was very tasty. So far I'm very happy with the product.
I used to have another bread maker, but I didn't like the way the paddle was in the middle, less whole pieces. This works great and the paddle is at the bottom, more whole pieces!
Great Breald Maker
After days of reviewing bread makers and going back and forth on which one to buy, I decided on this one by Cook's Essentials and I am so glad I did. Every loaf has come out perfectly. It is very easy to use; the booklet that came with it is extremely informative and well laid out. The price was great and the bread is just as good as loaves I have tasted from much more expensive machines.
great gift idea
I purchased the breadmaker for my daughter-in-law. Our granddaughter has severe food allergies and cannot have any soy products, so my daughter in law is making bread for her and both are loving it!!! Machine is very easy to use, just load it per the directions and a couple hours later.....FRESH BREAD!!!! That the whole family can eat!!! Clean up is sooo simple!
