    There's nothing like the smell of fresh baked bread. I've set mine up using the timer so that the machine starts baking bread, and it's ready just in time for breakfast.

    I like bread -

    I like bread, especially fresh baked bread. But I have every bread machine known to mankind and can't make bread. I also can't make it by hand.

    If you're close to NJ you can have my expensive machines.

    The conventional view serves to protect us from the painful job of thinking.

    We have a Zojirushi bread machine. It's a little more expensive than a Breadman or most others, but it actually works and makes a real loaf of bread.

    Currently have a Breadman Ultimate that works quite well, before that a Sanyo with a Williams/Sonoma label on it. I've found over the years that if you want a nice crust and a sandwich shaped loaf the best thing to do is let the bread machine mix the dough and raise it, then shape into a regular pan and bake it in the oven. Yeah, it's more work but the results speak for themselves (Several KY State Fair blue ribbons.)

    3 more tips: Use a good bread yeast - I like SAF or Fermipan - and good bread flour. If possible, find a machine that can do a 10 or 15 minute pause right after the initial kneading when the flour and liquid are just barely mixed. My old Sanyo, RIP, automatically did that. Breadman you have to press the pause button yourself.

    If you're interested I could say more...
