Same brand here! Makes great bread and has been going to a LONG time. Was my grandmother's before she went in a nursing home.

I'd recommend you buy a few boxes of packages of bread mix to try it out in the beginning. That way you can get used to the bread maker (and fall in love with it!) before flopping on a crappy recipe and then never using it.

Using more oil sometimes makes the bread....lighter? less dense? Something wonderful.

Pay careful attention to the washing instructions on the bread pan - you don't wanna soak it or put in the wash machine or it causes issues. Easy to just wipe it out really quickly though.
