The precise statement was "I think they produce an inferior product."  This 
does not necessarily imply substandard, but that it is not up to the quality 
that can be achieved.  I can buy an adequate loaf of bread at WalMart that 
surpasses the quality of Wonder Bread, but can not match the quality of an 
artisan loaf.  A bread machine is designed to produce a consistent product 
within the average persons parameters for "bread."  Preventing failure 
usually limits the ability to produce the superb.
