OUR RATING: 7.0/10

Don't let this breadmaker's low price fool you. It is well worth the buy. It's very easy to operate and full of special options. The dough feature has been especially useful for making pizza and rolls, and the French cycle is an added bonus. I paid over $100 for my previous machine and this one goes far beyond in features. Only down fall is that it does take up a lot of space. C. Rosenberg, Amazon.com

WHAT MATTERS

Performance

Meets Expectations - After some initial trial-and-error to avoid falling loaves, you'll get great results.

Ease of Use

Straightforward - Easy-to-use machine with a terrible user manual, and the parts are hand-wash only.

Appearance

Not Too Shabby - A nice-looking appliance with an odd-shaped footprint, it's more awkward than large.

Noise

As Expected - Operates quietly other than some knocking noises during kneading cycles.

 

OUR INSIGHT

The Sunbeam Programmable Breadmaker is an easy-to-use machine with 12 settings and a 2-pound capacity. The owner's manual, however, is awful. Amazon reviewers say the recipes included don't turn out in the machine, leaving users to experiment on their own to tweak other recipes. Cleanup is easy, but the pan and paddle are hand wash-only.

Moreover, the pan loses its nonstick coating over time, and it also has a seal that might leak (replacements are available for about $24). Backed by a one-year warranty, this bread machine lasts for a year or two of casual use but can hold up for years if only used occasionally.
