Oster 5838 ExpressBake Bread Maker Reviews
Most users found this Oster 5838 very useful and durable. One user even said that he has used this product for five years and he doesn’t feel the need to replace it. The ease of use was highly praised by the users, saying that all they had to do was put the ingredients (whether with nuts, fruits, etc.) in the product and they’re done. The manual was also easily understandable, according to most users. A lot of users also found that the recipes were helpful once you get used to it. You have to practice though, as there have also been complains that the recipes are not really exact.
Most people loved the fact that they were able to make other kinds of food, like pizza and pretzels with the use of this machine. You don’t even have to knead your own bread for your bread to be of good quality, again, with more practice.
The customer service center was also good according to users. Some of them had complains with cracks and questions about the warranty and the representative was quick in answering their questions.
A lot of users though have said that they did wish the loaves were a lot bigger after they were baked. Although the durability has been praised, some users have said that the top comes off really easily, which made them have to have the product replaced. But, since the customer service was fast, the new product also came in fast.
The cleaning part received mixed reviews. Some said it’s easy to clean, while other said that they had to look for a toothbrush for those places under and around the paddle. These areas are also not non-stick, so ingredients can really stick to it.
