Salton Bread Maker Summary Unit is very durable and yet rather inexpensive. Works well for the beginner as well as for the seasoned veteran bread maker. You can make any kind of bread in this machine. It does make the crust rather crispy even on the light mode, but bread still tastes great. Need to be careful as the machine does move while operating. See through window is great for viewing your bread while baking. Bread pan cleans up easily, and the machine is lightweight. One thing to keep in mind is that the housing is not cool touch, so it does get hot while baking the bread. Overall, this is a fine machine that I would recommend to the novice or the experienced bread maker.
