Bread Machine For A Shared Home?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

My husband (non-Celiac) wants a bread maker/machine for his birthday.  First question - is there one you would recommend?  We have limited counter space so it would be kept in a closet and carted out when needed, and the bigger question - is there any way in the world that there would be one that is so easy to clean thoroughly that I could use it to make gluten-free bread, too?  

 

I can't imagine this would work, but thought I'd throw it out there...

Not only would I NEVER use a bread machine that ever held gluten, but I would make sure to put ALL of my gluten-free dishes/pans/utensils in sealed plastic bags and in a room at the other end of the house, plus remove MYSELF from the house while this bread-making was going on. You know that flour dust gets into the air and stays there for hours and hours before it settles on everything in the kitchen.

 

Maybe he could use it in the garage?

No more gluten flour in my house!  If my daughter wants bread, she gets it at a restaurant or at Grandma's.  Otherwise, she gets pre-packaged PB & J frozen sandwiches.  I will boil noddles for her in her own pot, but that's the extent of my gluten cooking.  She'll be the first to say that my gluten-free cupcakes and pancakes are better than gluten-free versions (or at least store bought).  

 

I used to have a bread maker when I was eating gluten.  It was delicious and we got fat!  Later, I made bread and kneaded it by hand.  At least I got a work-out to help off-set those extra calories.  But, with both hubby and I gluten free, the health risks are not worth making my daughter happy.  Safety and health first!

 

Buy him a bike or a new set of golf clubs for his birthday!

He doesn't sound like a very nice guy.   :unsure:   Spreading gluten flour and the smell of delicious bread you can't eat?  Maybe get him some very expensive shoes in your size?  Or a nice diamond necklace?  Something you can truly share with him.   ;)

Or, if you are sure he wouldn't make gluten bread while you're not around, give him some gluten-free breadmaker recipes and insist that is the ONLY kind of bread he can make in it. And who knows, if the bread comes out tasting good, maybe he will start going gluten-free in the house and only eat gluten when he is away from home.

My non -celiac (but lovingly voluntarily gluten-free  husband)  just said "tell Karen--that's a great answer!"

 

Nikki, my guy is a senior analytical chemist who worked in labs and he KNOWS what CC can do.

 

There would be NO wheat flour flying around my kitchen EVER once I was Dxed and he was the one who made that clear.

 

Absolutely NO sharing of bread making equipment.

Okay  I have a  different  approach... my  gluten hubby  eats  mostly gluten-free  but  if  he  wants wheat  bread it  goes out  on the  open porch  in  summer  or  else  in  the  outside  garage in the  winter  months.......that  is  where  the  wheat  breadmaker lives!!!!!  Now  the gluten-free  breadmaker  is  on  a  high  shelf where  no one  can get  it  except me  so  no mistake ......but  all the other ideas  are  wonderful.....by the  way  the  wheat  flour  is also  in  the  garage  fridge...... I  never  go  there!!!!

Thanks everyone- he really is a great guy :-). I guess both of us thought that it was a more self-contained thing if you used a machine. Didn't know there'd be flour out. And sadly, we're in an apartment, so no garage.

We'll have to come up with a different gift.

Hon, we're sure he's a great guy. None of us thinks otherwise, honest! :)

 

I just feel strongly that it is a real gamble to share a bread machine and to have flour in the air, that's all.

IMHO

My Gluten eating hubby eats the gluten-free meals I prepare, but I don't disallow him to have gluten in the house, he just rarely does.  I always tell him "crumbs are the enemy!" So he has offered to eat in the garage before... haha.

If he really wants fresh baked gluten bread (and you are cool with non-gluten-free bread in your kitchen) , and you don't want to deal with flour poofing everywhere, you may have some luck with frozen dough.  I've seen some nice gourmet looking dough balls, so those you may be able to just toss in a dedicated gluten pan and bake.  Still get the fresh baked taste but less mess.
