I have not responded to this list before, so I hope this comes out ok. I
have a Pillsbury Bread Machine that makes up to 2 lb loaves. I love it, and
have not had any problems with it. I have made all kinds of different
breads including honey wheat, 7 grain, colonial, white, french, honey french
and rye. Also I use the quick bread cycle all the time. I've had it about 7
months and have had no problems. I did however have problems when I tried
to use gluten in my recipe. Don't know if it was the gluten, the recipe, or
the operator, but I returned to using 1C white flour and 1C whole wheat
flour. If you have any more questions you can mail me direct. Happy baking!
