Sweet cycle for consistent bread in Seiko machines

Cheryl Backes found that the Fruit and Nut cycle gave the most consistent 
bread in her Breadman Plus.  I had the exact same bread problems with my 
Chefmate, until I started baking everything on the Sweet cycle (this 
model does not have a Fruit and Nut setting.)  "Basic" setting caused 
fallen bread, mushrooming, overcooked doorstops, etc.

Then I looked it up, and found that Seiko makes both the Breadman and the 
Chefmate!  It's probably the same machinery with different labeling and 

So the lower-temperature long cycle in the Seiko machines (whatever the 
label) appears to work most consistently.
