CooksEssentials Dual 1 lb. Bread Maker w/ 12 Settings
Not a Good Item
I had this for a few months, just long enough to get the easy-pay finished and it stopped working. I contacted QVC and they were very nice and helpful. I tried it once more and it started working so I called them back and cancelled the swap. Then it died again during use. I returned the item for a refund. The item stunk but QVC's customer service is top-notch!
The machine first of all is very load. Tired making two at the same time , and would not work. The bread came out hard or sometimes doughy. Didn't perform like it did on there show. Also , taking the bottom key out from the machine makes a whole and there's not much left from such a small loaf. Waited to long to start using this machine, so to late to send back, and sad to say when I bought this, I bought Two, one for my Daughter.
Really easy to use and the bread taste excellent!!!
Love it! love it! love it!
The size is just perfect!!! I am a widow and live by myself, so the 1lb size is just perfect for me. I have a larger Bread Machine, but this one is the best. Can make two different kinds at one time!!!! QVC keep on making wonderful things!!!
The Bread Crust is too hard even at light setting the pizza dough was also disappointing easier to knead own dough and let rise.
For Me Not The Right Machine
I had one of the first breadmakers years ago and it worked for probably 15 years. The bread was light and airy and I had to watch the number of loaves I made each week because we were eating too much bread. I hoped this breadmaker would be close if not the same. Well, it wasn't, I made about 5 loaves before I realized this wasn't going to satisfy me. I also had trouble with the hard crust and the bread was heavy as well. I wonder if it has to do with the smaller loaf. So I've returned this one and have ordered the Hamilton Beech 2 lb loaf machine. Hopefully the Hamilton Beech will do the job.
OMG LOVE IT!!!
had this for a week made bread every day!!!! sooo easy 2 min to put the ingredients in and push the button ..2 hrs later perfect loafs of bread.... (2hr depending on setting you choose) ...clean up is easy too the small loafs of bread are perfect i can make 2 different kind or just one for dinner ...its soooo easy im going to have to work out 30 extra min a day cause there's fresh bread every day now!!!! lol
best bread machine
the best bread machine i have ever had. my son and his wife bought this bread machine for christmas for me. i love it. it makes the best bread. the only thing i wish is that there was more bread recipes with the machine. i would recommend this machine to anyone that likes homemade bread but don't need big loaves.
My husband loves this and so do I.
Great machine I got it at 6pm tonight and was making bread at 6:30. Ten minutes to put ingredients in the machine then Im off shopping and hubby had fresh hot bread and leaves me alone! Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!
I have just 1 question My crust on light or med setting is so hard can 't cut it. What am I doing wrong
Not very big loafs
I really want to love this machine, but just can't get past the tiny loafs of bread produced. We made bread the same day we received it and thought maybe we were doing something wrong, but every loaf we made was tiny. the bread taste great though. This is a great purchase for those that want to make smaller loafs of bread.
We received the machine this morning and we tried it right away. We had 2 boxes of Krusteaz Bread Machine Mix, white and sourdough. We live above 7,000 ft elevation.We had to adjust the recipe for water content one additional tablespoon of water per loaf.
The weather here is very cold and it is currently snowing. It took 2hrs and 20 minutes and we had two perfect loaves of fresh bread. The smell of fresh baked bread in the house was the best especially with the cold weather outside. After we removed the loaves from the pans we cooled the bread on a wire rack. After 20 minutes we sliced it and buttered it.
This bread was outstanding. The texture, the crust and the taste were exceptional. This is one of the best QVC purchases we have ever made.
Our granddaughters are visiting for the Christmas Holidays next week and we can hardly wait to let them bake their own bread for PBJ sandwiches.
