Welcome to Cheftalk. Easy on the snarkiness, Leeniek is just saying she likes hers...not that she is the Queen of Bread.

Earlier I used the breadmaker machine and I was pretty satisfied with the results, but nowadays I try to make the bread by my hands not because somethinf is wrong with my breadmaker, but just because I like the process of making.

But there are also the cases when the breadmakers are broken without any serious reasons. Such cases happened with my friends.

Our King Arthur flour cookbook presented the opinion that the bread machine does a better job of mixing and kneading than a stand mixer or by hand. True? Maybe, but we still find it convenient.

You know I have read of people doing this and I don't understand Cabo why even buy the bread maker. Just buy a kitchen aid mixer.

 

Recently ChefTalk received the newest zojirushi bread maker model and so far it is actually pretty decent. The main gripe I have is that it does not cook the top of the bread enough. I am testing some ways to remedy this but it seems like an expensive appliance and you should not have to fiddle with it to get it to work right. Another thing I have learned is that it has two paddles for mixing which is excellent. As a result when I use Beth Hensperger's recipes (Bread Baking cookbook) you do not need to add wheat gluten. With the breadman bread maker you do.
