We ended up buying the cheaper bread machine - the Sunbeam. I love having fresh bread! Here is my current favorite recipe for regular white bread (though I mix in a little whole wheat) - it makes a 1 1/2 lb. loaf.
1 C. warm water
3 Tbs. sugar
1 1/2 tsp. salt
3 Tbs. olive oil
3 C. bread flour (I usually do 2 C. bread flour and 1 C. whole wheat flour)
2 tsp. yeast
Put into bread machine in that order - and voila! It's ready in about 3 hours. :)
