November 14, 2013whole wheat pre-heat stage
"I set my brand new "custom loaf" to the whole wheat setting. There is a pre-heat stage when using whole wheat. After putting all my ingredients , pushing the start button, and waiting for 30 minutes, with nothing happening( i felt the heating elements, nothing), i began to wonder what was up. The timer continued to count down, the progress scale kept blinking "pre heat", still nothing. I called customer support, they walked me through the seeings. Nothing changed. told me to take it back to the store and exchange it. OK, did so. brought the new one home. added my new batch of ingredients, set up for whole wheat, crust level high, 1.5lb loaf. Nothing!!!!! called customer support again, they were amazed. walked me through the setting again. Nothing changed. Sent me a Fedex label to return it for a new one. Well, I think not... Intend on returning it to the store for a refund and sticking with my Viking 1000 watt stand mixer. never fails this unit.....
if anyone has any thoughts on this problem, post it, i will certainly try anything....."

" As bread maker this machine does just fine but if you want to do custom programs to make dough, taking full advantage of things like preheat you are out of luck.
I would have thought a machine this expensive would have full program capabilities but I am sad to say it does not.
I had a less than $60 Sunbeam that equaled this bread machine in many ways.

"Breville makes great products and this bread maker is certainly one of them. It is far easier to use than I expected. This is my first bread maker and I am very pleased.
Considering I have NEVER made bead by hand or machine before my first bread came out almost perfect. I say "almost" because I neglected to watch in case the bread would go slightly over the bread pan. The instructions tell you to look for this BUT I did not. The instruction book is also an excellent companion to the "Custom Loaf". I have had products from other manufacturers and was puzzeled by the lack of help in their manuals.
The Custom Loaf manual is very detailed and helpful. I must confess that even though this was my FIRST attempt at making bread ever, I adapted one of the included recipes to my own taste in my very FIRST try at bread making. My wife said I was a little "brave" to alter a recipe but the instructions give detailed guidelines to alter a recipe.
I highly recomend this bread maker; BBM800XL Custom Loaf.
April 1, 2012Best Loaf Ever!
"I bought this bread machine a few months ago. It works great! Every loaf comes out perfect and I'm using it a LOT more than I imagined. The custom settings are a big plus. You can manually add more rise time for something like a sour dough loaf which rises a bit slower. The folding paddle really works...it makes less of a "dent" in the bottom of the bread and is very easy to take out. I have gotten very creative with breads that I wouldn't have done just using a mixer to make the dough."
