I had one for years until it broke.

The manufacturers recipes are generally just a guide. Too many variables for it be exact.

Unless you can use the exact same flour and yeast, even salt, all the time it’s trial and error.

You will get a feel for what works eventually, just stick with it.

I used to really like the super dense brown bread, like a brick. One slice was about the same as 3 normal white sliced ones.
