I have an Oster. I have burned out the motor on two Black and Deckers. The B&D's had better electronics, so I had a few more options with them that I have with the Oster, but it is good, too. The were all about $120 (Canadian dollars) at Canadian Tire.
I love having a bread maker. I decided to get one five years ago. I wanted to borrow my sister's machine for a week to try it out, but she would only loan it to me for one day because she uses her's so much. I don't use mine as much as she does, if she runs out of bread, she has to drive for 20 minutes to buy overpriced Wonderbread. If I run out of bread, I can walk for three minutes and get still-hot baguettes, croissants and yummy whole wheat bread. I still use the breadmaker about 2 times a week, mostly for breakfasts. The delayed timer option is the most important thing for me.
