West Bend Breadmaker machine dimensions

Can someone who has this machine - West Bend 41300 Hi-Rise Electronic Dual-Blade Breadmaker - please measure the distance between the surface that the machine sits on and the very top edge of the lid when open.  I have a bit of a low overhang above the machine, and the machine I have now has just a small fraction of an inch of clearance when opening the lid.  It is a cheap Hamilton Beach bread maker that I got at Bi-Mart store the other day just as a test to see if it would be possible or practical to use one in my Motorhome (full-time RV resident).  It is in fact going to be workable, but I now want a better machine. The H.B machine is low-grade in a number of respects.

The measurements given for the machine I have and also those I have found for the WestBend machine do not have H/W/D identifiers for the numbers given, and I can't be sure which dimension is which. I'll have to order the WestBend machine from Amazon.com and need to be sure it will work right in the space I have for it.

Thanks ever so much,

Brian

by Amazons measurements this breadmakers height  with the lid open should be (within 1/2 inch) 22 1/2 inches

it is 18 (wide) by 10 1/2 deep by 11 4/5 (12") high. just adding the depth (the lid, front to back) to the height should give you a pretty good approximate. for safetys sake give youself 24" .. and most cabinets are at least that far from the counter tho I'm not sure about RV's .. 

hope this helps.

Thanks for the comments (name?).  Unfortunately, Amazon's measurements are all over the place, and not in any identified order of height, width, or depth.   I just looked at one item on their site that gives two differing sets of measurements on the same page.  I can't tell if their measurements are of the device or the box it comes in, but I'll say that their measurements for the Hamilton Beach unit I have are not even close to actual.

I have 20 1/4" of clearance to work under.

So, I'm still hoping for someone who actually has that bread maker and who will take the time to measure it for me.  It's a good looking unit and would match other appliances I have very well, being black and all. Alternatively, Oster has a unit that I'm sure would fit, but white and somewhat less in price, if price is the reflector of quality.

I used the Hamilton Beach bread maker's dough cycle yesterday to do bread dough for oven baking, and the thing squeaked terribly most of the way through the mixing/kneading cycles. I'm quite sure I really do want to just give it to Goodwill and obtain something better. (The dough turned out great and the loaf just wonderful after baking in a normal bread pan.)

Once again, thanks for responding. I appreciate it greatly.

I have found the answer to my question from replies to the same inquiry on the Amazon.com site - the West Bend Bread Maker page. There is a user forum, of sorts, where questions of this nature can be asked. Interestingly, I got quite a number of responses.
