Breakmaker Dilemma

I need some help. My husband has yet to like any type of gluten free bread we have tried so I am on the hunt for the best gluten free breadmaker. Help! Any recommendations. I researched it but see so many conflicting ratings on products.

I have the Cuisinart one. It has a gluten free setting (though I only use the white and wheat settings - they cook better!)

I recommend the cuisinart.

All you do is mix the wet ingredients fist, pout them into the pan. Then mix the dry ingreidents, add them on top of wet. Then add yeast. Hit the button and forget about for 3 hours or so.

Its been pretty good so far!

Those were the 2 I was kind of debating between. Looks like I need a tie breaker. Ha!

I have the breadman plus, which also has a gluten free setting, though as with all machines I have used the white setting on medium crust seems to work the best, it also makes it in a more traditional loaf shape! The book it comes with has some really good recipes in it as well. As for a good bread that is a little different you could look at bob's red mill gluten-free whole grain mix. It has some mixed seeds, and such and is the only kind that my father will eat.

Hope that helps

We have the Zojirushi and love it. Makes fantastic bread every time and it's so incredibly easy to use. I put in the ingredients (wet first, dry on top and then pour in the yeast), plug it in and push one button. Delicious bread in 3 hours and 20 minutes (and if you can't get to it right away, it stays warm for hours and is still wonderful). I got mine from Amazon.

We also have the Breadman and I love it. It does have the gluten-free setting, but all the bread I made on that setting has been pretty soft in the middle, so I just use the regular 3 hour cycle and the bread comes out great!

My husband's favorite bread mix so far has been The Gluten Free Pantry's Favorite Sandwich Bread mix. You can get it for much less on amazon .com than you can in the sotre.

Good luck to you!

I have the cuisinart, and I love it. Just put it all together, scrape down the sides once, and forget it for a few hours. I use the gluten-free setting and it works fine for me.

    • I have Celiac, Hashi's thyroid disease, Sjogren's Syndrome and Reynaud's Syndrome.  All have gotten better, inflammation wise, after 11 years gluten free.  I am very strict with my diet, never take chances if I feel the food is not really gluten free and limit the number of times I go out to eat.  I am not saying I never go out but it is normal for my husband and I to not see the inside of a restaurant for 3-4 months at a time and then I only eat at the places that have never glutened me.  I am lucky in that the state I live in has 3 restaurant chains that are run/owned by Celiac's, so they get it right every time. You have not been gluten free for very long, in reality.  It took me three years to completely rid myself of all symptoms related to the disease.  I was 46 at the time of diagnosis.  I know it is hard to accept that healing can take that long but you have to measure it differently.  Looking back, you should feel better than you did a year ago.  As time goes on, healing slowly takes place until you realize that certain problems have disappeared.  It is not as cut and dried as taking an antibiotic for an infection. http://www.drweil.com/drw/u/ART03424/Elevated-Creactive-Protein-CRP.html  Read this article on elevated c reactive protein. It is by Dr. Weil, who is a Harvard trained physician who chose to go the more natural route to healing people.  All his stuff is interesting.  Yes, your elevated level will most likely come down, as you heal better.  Pay attention to it but don't let it freak you out too much! 
    • Hi Calla, I think the safe answer is 12 weeks on gluten for a blood test.  I am pretty sure they say 2 weeks on gluten for the gut endoscopy.  But usually people/doctors don't want to  do an endoscopy before a positive blood test, so catch 22 there. There's a chance you still have active antibodies in your blood after 3 weeks off gluten.  But nobody can tell you for sure.  If you can get you doctor to test you now and in 9 more weeks if you are negative now, that might work.  If the doctor is willing to do 2 tests, that would be great. The best thing would have been to do all celiac disease testing before going gluten-free.  But sometimes it doesn't work out that way. The University of Chicago celiac center has an FAQ that answers some of your questions. http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/i-dont-have-the-money-to-get-tested-for-celiac-disease-but-a-gluten-free-diet-makes-me-feel-better-is-it-okay-to-start-the-diet-without-being-diagnosed/ Welcome to the forum!  
    • Couldn't have said it better!  
    • If you are going for an endoscopy, then please ask for a celiac antibodies COMPLETE panel.  This will help you determine if you have been diet compliant (zapped by hidden sources of gluten or accidental cross contamination) and if your doctor misses the (possible) damaged areas during the procedure.    That way you can rule out celiac disease and THEN worry about the possibility of other AI issues.   I did this last summer.  I got really sick.  My GI thought SIBO right off the bat.  But I asked just to be tested for celiac disease.  Sure enough, I had elevated antibodies.  No need to test for SIBO or anything else at that point.  I just waited a few months for symptoms to subside.   Good Luck to you!  
    • That's good Megan, that you were tested.  Many people have the genes, but only some develop the disease.  Your doctor is right about celiac often appearing after some kind of physical stress or illness. The tricky thing about eliminating one food is that you body may be reacting to multiple foods.  So not getting better could mean you just eliminated one problem instead of 3. It's not unusual to have digestion issues for quite a while after going gluten-free.  Our guts are damaged and that damage has to heal.  But it can't heal until the immune system stops it's attack.  The immune system attack/reaction can keep going for weeks to months.  So it can be a slow recovery.  Often people report getting better and then getting worse and going back and forth on symptoms. What doesn't help is that our bacteria in our guts can get really screwed up by the disease process.  We can't properly digest things so there is more undigested food for bacteria to thrive on.  Avoiding sugars and carbs can help with that issue. Here are some starting the gluten-free diet tips for the first 6 months.  Some of these you have already taken care of: Get tested before starting the gluten-free diet.
      Get your vitamin/mineral levels tested also.
      Don't eat in restaurants
      Eat only whole foods not processed foods.
      Eat only food you cook yourself, think simple foods, not gourmet meals.
      Take probiotics.
      Take gluten-free vitamins.
      Take digestive enzymes.
      Avoid dairy if it causes symptoms.
      Avoid sugars and starchy foods. They can cause bloating.
      Avoid alcohol.
