Can anyone recommend a decent bread machine?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

Hi folks,

I would like to give a surprise gift for my lady for her birthday, and she's been complaining for weeks now she would like a bread machine :p I found literally hundreds of different makes and models - now I've just came to the point when I don't know what I want for dinner tonight, much less what machine to get :S I would like to ask you for your objective opinion on which one is better (as you can see, on that website they have really praised both of them, now I wold like to hear something honest and objective :))

Yes the Zojirushi is the way to go. There is a detailed review here:

I hate the taste of bread from bread machines, but I love to wake up to the smell.
Of the brands, the only one to even consider is Zojirushi.
Very thoughtful of you to get it for her.

Another thumbs up for Zojirushi.  My first bread machine was a Breadman and I was very happy with that.  

 

One thing I find important is to get one that makes a regular-shaped loaf.  My friends that purchased the style where the bread looks like it was baked in a coffee can may have saved money, but they found using the loaves a little awkward when making sandwiches for other people . . . namely their children.  I use mine for making dough for lots of projects in addition to baking bread.  I love it best in the middle of winter when I can savor the smells of baking bread throughout my house.

Unfortunately, one can't get my favorite bread machine, Just for Dinner.  It makes a 12 ounce loaf, just right for one meal or for a single person several.  It baked in 45 minutes.  The company no longer makes them.  I gave them as wedding presents to newly-weds.

I think a Oster Express Breadmaker is a good choice!!

...your hands to feel the loaf's resistance.  Nothing like feel.

Best and I'm a foodie.   I know very little but the little that I know I want to know very well.

My machine is an older Breadman, around 2001. It still works beautifully but I advise getting a machine with a setting for baking non-gluten breads. Even if you do not do GF the setting will come in handy for other breads that can only have one rising.

I came to this thread just to extoll the virtues of the Zojirushi.

I see that I am late to the party.rolleyes.gif
