K20772 - Cooks Essentials 2lb Capacity Bread Machine w/ 8 Settings
Love the bread maker, but parts are no longer available to purchase, so now i just have a giant paperweight. Next bread machine won't be a cooks essentials!
Best Bread Machine I've Ever Had
I love this machine I use this so much that I need to get a new bread pan. I can't say enough good about this product. I would most definetly buy another one and I would reccommend this product to any one that is looking for a bread machine. Thank you for such a great product
Great for Gluten Free
I have been trying to eat as little gluten as possible for several years now. Although I'm an avid baker, and have found recipes for gluten free cookies & cakes, I've never been successful with bread. Well, that streak has been broken with the purchase of this incredible machine! I've had the Cooks Essential Bread Machine just a week and have baked lovely fragrant loaves three times. The recipe I found online works perfectly on the "Sweet" bread cycle.
Worth its weight in gold
I've had this bread machine for two weeks and have made three different loaves of bread so far (I purchased the companion bread maker cookbook - highly recommend you do the same). A bread maker like this would easily cost you $200. This makes excellent quality bread, flawlessly every time. If you want to have bread but live without chemicals and preservatives, this is the way to go.
Great so far
I love good bread. I used Bread Machine once and the bread was delicious. I will mostley be making Whole wheat bread because it is better for me and Bakery whole wheat bread is so exspensive. I'm hoping my other bread's will be as good. The bread had that hearth look and taste. Im putting four star's because i only used machine once. The smell in the house is so nice. There is nothing to compare with home made bread.
I have 2 of these bread machines. I use them all the time to make my pizza doughs and homemade breads. People can't believe I make my own pizza dough for my homemade pizza and sausage bread and homemade cinnamon rolls and etc.
I have had it for about 6 weeks & I have tried several different settings & all have turned out great. I think the quick setting comes out the beat, love this machine
This is the best bread maker. Put everything in and you have bread. Also makes the best pizza dough.. Make homemade pizza everyday. Kids LOVE it. Breadmaker was cited as number 8 of 10 ways to save money in 2010.
I bought this bread maker to replace an older unit that had stopped working. I'm no stranger to bread makers and figured this would be a great purchase, but this machine is just awful.
The machine does not completely mix the ingredients or knead the dough correctly. Every loaf I've made comes out dense, lopsided and unedible. Because I waited for cooler weather to use this, I've missed the return date and will have to throw this waste of money away. Too bad as I've usually had great luck with the appliances I've purchased from QVC. If you are going to try a bread machine, I'd try a different brand.
Back It Goes
The first loaf I made was not cooked, so I called the company and was told to add bread flour until it forms a ball, that loaf came out cooked but very light. Called the company again and was told I have to buy bread flour for bread machines, it still came out light, I can't seem to program the machine for medium or dark brown, and every bread I bake smells the same, so back it went!!
Got this yesterday and this morning there is a fresh loaf of homemade bread on my counter. I have not even read most of the book yet tho I plan to. This is my first experience with a bread maker and it was easy easy easy. Most importantly i know exactly what ingredients I am eating. No hidden chemicals or preservatives.
Can't wait to try different receipes
GREAT BREAD MACHINE. WOULD DEFINETELY RECOMMEND. HOWEVER (SORRY) THE OWNER'S MANUAL CONTRADICTS ITSELF RE DOUGH CYCLE. ON PAGE 6 IT CLEARLY STATES THAT THE DOUGH CYCLE DOES NOT HAVE A ADD IN BEEP---BUT THE MAJORITY OF THE DOUGH CYCLE RECIPES STATE TO ADD INGREDIENTS (IF APPROPRIAT) AT THE ADD IN BEEP EDITING NOT SO GOOD.
