The bread maker is an attractive design made of brushed aluminum. Although it is a thin aluminum that seems to show every dent and surface flaw easily, it's good enough. The lid of the bread maker is designed to completely lift off from the main unit if you need to remove it for cleaning. However I did notice that because of the plastic hinges that are used, a certain amount of "play" is introduced that makes it possible for the lid to hit the right edge of the main unit as you are closing the lid. This is not a huge issue, but you just need to be aware of that fact as you close the lid. I've uploaded a few photos in the Customer Images area to show you exactly what I mean.
I followed the instructions and before making my first loaf of bread, ran the machine through a baking cycle to burn off any residues from the manufacturing process. Once the unit cooled down, I washed the baking tray. I decided to make as my first loaf, the 2lb basic white bread. I was immediately thrown off a bit by the recipe calling for 1 1/2 TBS of dry milk powder. What??? Then my brain got tied into a knot as I was trying to figure out how to make the bread without dry milk powder. I quickly realized I could probably just substitute milk for the water and completely omit the dry milk powder. Bingo... worked like a charm.Read more ›

I think this video speaks for itself. You can see the nice circular scrape of bare metal that the kneading paddle was making on it's third use! You are correct... that is yummy Teflon coating from the pan being scraped into my dough. You can bet I won't be eating that loaf... You can also hear the lovely sounds of metal on metal contact that will be added to your kitchen ambiance with this machine.
I am willing to bet that the new "collapsible paddle" technology is the reason behind this poor performance. There is a hinge on the bottom of the paddle that enables it to fold down. This hinge introduces some wobble not seen on a regular kneading paddle. And you know what happens when poor quality products wobble... they collide. So even if it doesn't scrape on the first use as mine did, it will probably start to scrape after some use (hopefully not before your amazon return window expires). The hinge on the paddle is also not the only thing that wobbles... the hinge for the top cover wobbles so much that it hits the top of the machine where it shouldn't and creates marks in the nice shiny stainless. This wobbly hinge has been mentioned in other similar breadman reviews and is a common problem.
Maybe I got a defective unit... but I won't be risking it... sending it back and exchanging for another brand. Good Luck!
I love that the paddle is collapsible. It still does leave a hole in the bottom of the loaf, but it's not nearly as big and intrusive as a normal breadmaker. I also love that it will automatically add your fruit and nuts at the right time in the cycle. I am too absent-minded to catch it at the right time, otherwise.
It makes a great loaf of bread. I'm making my 5th loaf right now. I haven't used the actual gluten-free cycle; I use the quick-white or quick-wheat cycle with the Pamela's mix I usually use, and it turns out great. I may come back and update my review after I have used it for more recipes.
My criticisms are two-fold: first of all, the stainless steel is not the highest quality--it's thin-looking. You can see imperfection in the way it's riveted and stretched. That disappointed me. I still prefer it over a giant white box, though.
My second criticism is that while the instruction manual says "don't worry if the paddle falls down when you're adding ingredients; it will stand up and lock into position once the cycle is started"--we found this not to be true and ended up with a completely unmixed "loaf" that had to be thrown away halfway through the baking process because it was a disaster. The paddle was still flat against the bottom of the pan. But as long as you know this and make sure it starts to mix properly at the beginning of the cycle, it's no problem.
Over all, great machine at a very reasonable price for all the features!
