The Cons

The customer feedback for the Sunbeam 5891 has for the most part been very positive but there have also been a few complaints made about it by its customers.

One of the most common criticisms that has been voiced by customers about the bread machine is that the loaves produced tend to fall during the baking cycle. A large number of reviewers have encountered this issue. This seems to be due to the inadequacy of the user manual. Apparently the product’s manual is not very helpful and some of its recipes are incorrect, which has led to subpar results for many of its users. Fortunately a number of reviewers at Amazon have posted the recipes online that they have used to solve this problem and make delicious bread. Other reviewers have suggested that the user should buy a bread maker book, which will also make sure that your loaves won’t fall.

Another frequent problem that has been encountered by customers of this bread maker is the overcooking of the crust of the loaves that are made. A solution to this is to only use the ‘light crust’ setting on the machine. This will solve this problem but will limit your crust options to just one.

One final complaint made by reviewers is that the machine is quite large. It takes up a considerable amount of countertop space, which is something to consider before purchasing.

The Pros

The majority of the customer feedback for the Sunbeam 5891 has been quite positive and there are many customers that are very satisfied since purchasing the unit.
