To sum up, if you are looking to spend less money, this is a great bread maker.

It does what other expensive models do which is bake delicious bread!

That being said, it does make some noise, it won’t bake perfect loaves, and it may break down within about 3 years, unlike more expensive machines.

If you want the extras that more expensive machines provide, maybe it would be worth paying a bit more for another model.

That being said, for our purposes, we were more than happy with our purchase of the Sunbeam 5891.
