I am very disappointed in my Oster bread machine. I will admit that living in Colorado does cause extra problems in baking, But the only good function on the machine is the 1.5 LB express bake. All of the other lengthy selections over rise, and over bake, even after subtacting ingredients from the various recipes. The only way to use Basic, European, Sweet, and so on is to baby sit the machine for three plus hours and try and guess when to shift to the next function before the bread is ruined.
Not really what I expected.
