Summary Quite versatile in that it can make more items than most other bread makers. You can make pizza dough, baguettes, cakes, and more. To make all these items you also get 2 paddles which helps with kneading the dough. Each different item such as the cakes, baguettes, and the breads each come out with a different texture. The unit is large which keeps it from moving around during baking. The unit has a much higher wattage than other bread makers, 1650 watts versus an average of 700 watts for other bread machines. Unit runs quietly and coolly, no heating up the kitchen while baking. Instructions are clear enough for a beginner, and the machine makes large enough breads (3 pounds) to feed an average sized family.
