Bread machine not giving consistant results.
I picked up a bread machine about 2 months ago from a thrift store. I paid $7 bucks for it and it was a steal! its a breadman tr44. I've used it quite a few times already and its been hit or miss results. I'll use the exact same ingredients and sometimes I get a perfect loaf, sometimes its short and dumpy, sometimes its hard as a rock! I It's been great for making dough so i'm not getting rid of it, but i'm wondering if its just on its last legs. From what I can tell its about 10 years old and it doesn't change the loaf size on the settings button. Is it time to break down and just buy a new one? or am I doing something wrong? This is my first bread machine.
