Bread Machine Recommendation?

I'm looking to buy a bread machine. There are so many other there! I'm looking for something cheap, reliable and easy to use. For those of you who own one, what do you use? Do you like it? If not, which other one would you get? Thanks!

I got a bread maker for my wedding shower several years back and never had much luck with it. Everything either got stuck or turned out like a hockey puck. I think it was an Oster?

I bought a bread machine about 10 years ago, and it still sits out on my counter! I use it mostly for mixing dough that I shape and bake in the oven, and making pizza dough (homemade pizza in 90 minutes, and more than 3 times better than Dominos!). I also baked bread for my son's lunches throughout high school, made up for the cookies I did not have waiting when he got home from school (and I was at work).

I'd say the best ones are the Breadman Ultimate and the Zojirushi machines. Both are very flexible with many cycles, let you delay the start (so you can time fresh bread for when you get home, or when you wake up), give you loaf-shaped loaves, and are reliable. Whichever you can find a better price on (probably the Breadman) would be the deciding factor.

Enjoy, and I hope yours is still out on your counter a decade from now!
