Yes. I have tried several mixes & all have come out just great. The box usually has instructions on the order to put your ingredients in (so follow that). Yeast first, then mix, then liquids on top. I've even set mine up for delayed baking & they came out well too. Good luck!

All breadmaker use a belt and pulley system. If your breadmaker powers-up but the mixer won't turn when it's supposed to, your belt is probably broken. You'll need to disassemble the breadmaker to visually confirm.
Tip: The belt and pulley assemblies are located at the bottom of your breadmaker.

I have made the following recipe in my West Bend machine with great results. I just got a Sunbeam 5895 at a garage sale - it works great - just wanted a different "shape" loaf! I'm going to use this recipe in my Sunbeam - don't see why it won't work!
Here's the recipe!
1/2 cup softened butter, cut into small pieces for good blending
1 cup mashed ripe banana (personal note: if my ripe bananas don't measure up to 1 cup, I add enough milk to make it 1 cup. Seems to be okay)
2 eggs, large, slightly beaten
1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional)
2 cups all purpose flour
3/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
Grease inside of pan and knead bar generously with vegetable shortening (I just spray with Pan Spray). All all ingredients in order listed above to pan. Lock pan into bread machine. Program for quick bread. After a few minutes of mixing, I usually take a rubber spatula and scrape down the sides and stir in any flour that has not been completely mixed. I didn't do this once and ended up with a loaf that had flour coated corners!
Good Luck! Enjoy!
Just follow the above recipe but if your using the Oster 5838 expressbake put the setting at expressbake 80min. It works flawlessly, also with the oster 5838 expressbake you don't need to use the rubber spatula to mix after a minute because it blends everything together nicely.
The biggest thing is the yeast. If it's even a minute past due then throw it away. Freshest is bestest. Also watch your water temp. not to hot, or too cold. Warm enough to your touch. And make sure your yeast is in your little well on top.
