Breville Custom Loaf Bread Maker, BBM800XL

Breville Custom Loaf Bread Maker, BBM800XL : Easy-to-use digital Breville Custom Loaf Bread Maker takes the hard work out of baking your own deliciously fresh, homemade bread right on your countertop. The clever, automatic bread machine computes temperature and baking time when you choose a bread type, while a simple dial turn gets your recipe started in seconds. An automatic fruit and nut dispenser mixes in extra ingredients at the right moment for you during kneading. The stainless-steel bread maker creates an incredible variety of breads including crusty-loaf and gluten-free, plus dough for pizza, rolls, focaccia and pasta. The Breville Custom Loaf bread maker is so smart it lets you create your own recipes and stores them for later use. The backlit smart LCD screen displays 13 automatic settings, 3 crust colors and 4 loaf sizes. A innovative kneading paddle collapses before baking to minimize a bottom crust indentation. Automatic bread machine's fixed kneading paddle works with jam-only breads and a pause function lets you hand-shape decorative crusts and add glazes. A 13-hour delay start timer is convenient for waking up to a fresh loaf in the morning. To convert default Fahrenheit and pounds settings to metric units, just press the weight/temperature button. The heavy-duty stainless-steel bread maker will withstand years of successful baking. Nonstick bread pan with handle offers easy lifting and quick cleanup.

We have been using the bread maker for a week now every day and every bread we tried from the recipe book, in different sizes, came out great! It's very easy to clean and operate. The collapsible paddle leaves almost no hole on the bottom.
Only suggestion for improvement is that the handle for the bread container easily comes off when you lift the container from the machine. It's easy to put back on though.

I recently bought the Breville bread maker. I have to admit that for the price I paid, this bread maker doesn't live up to it's expectations. I have tried making bread different times, and the bread comes out very heavy and dense.
I had a Sunbeam bread maker prior to this one, and my bread always came out perfect. I am very disappointed to say the least.
I would not recommend this bread maker to anyone.
