Thanks for the quick response! One of my colleagues has a breadman pro....and also loves it. Also appreciate the info on the frozen stuff. I'll stay away from it.

Regards!

Do you HAVE to use a bread machine to get a decent loaf of bread? Do you have to buy gluten free pantry's mix? Isn't there a way we can get the gluten free pantry's recipe? I'll break down and buy a bread machine if I have to, but why can't it be done in the oven with a loaf pan?

I have a Zojirushi bread machine and just adore it. They're a bit pricier, but worth it to me. I can get a decent loaf of bread (usually use gluten-free pantry or Manna from Anna, but have done "homemade"). It's just so much easier to make bread this way. No messing with mixing bowls, big heavy mixers, etc. Maybe I'm just lazy, but if it weren't for my bread machine, I don't think I would ever eat bread. I just don't have the time to do it any other way.

Both Pamela's and Gluten-Free Pantry's bread mixes have instructions for bread machine and a regular oven. I just use the mix and bake in a loaf pan. My first loaf started to brown too much and I took it out early - big mistake. After that I started putting a tent of foil over the bread with about 10 minutes to go and haven't had a problem.

I also have a Zo. I've had it for over 2 years, and use it several times per week (I bake for my Mom, also). It is a fantastic, reliable machine. I use various gluten-free flours, but not packaged mixes (I do think it is less expensive to use the individual flours). I have used the FANTASTIC bread recipe from Lorka http://www.glutenfreeforum.com/index.php?showtopic=28633, and it turns out beautifully.

It is certainly possible to make bread with a mixer, and bake it in the oven. But I like the convenience of the bread maker - I don't have to pay attention to when it's finished rising, when to preheat the oven, etc. I just put in the ingredients, and come back an hour and a half later when it beeps. (I'm not lazy, just busy... <_< )

Here! Here! I agree....not lazy, just busy. I recently picked up one of the books by Bette Hagman, The Gluten-free Gourmet. It has several recipes I'd like to try.

Thanks for the recommendations girls!

I also have the Zo, and just used it for the 1st time last week. I made the Manna from Anna bread. It was so delicious!! I've been having grilled cheese and tomato soup all week long. In fact I just finished another grilled cheese. You could also just eat this bread without toasting if you wanted to make a sandwich like a all those gluten eating people ;)

I was slightly intimidated to use it at first (ok awhile, I got it about 2 months ago), but DH finally convinced me to give it a try. I couldn't believe how easy it was to use and how great the bread was. I've never tried any other bread machine so I have no comparison, but I would definately reccomend this one (and the Manna Breads). You only need the bread machine for the regular sandwich breads but I made her Pumpkin and Banana breads for Thanksgiving this past year and they were sooooooo delicious! Everyone loved them.

Heck with that, I just made a batch of Bread form Anna in my bread machine (Oster Express Bake) and I will happily admit to being lazy :)

Besides the bread always seems to come out better from the bread maker....
