In Search Of Bread Machine

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have recommendations for a bread machine that works well for gluten free breads?

I have an old Sunbean machine that I used to make some gluten-free bread- and as I suspected it would, it made me very sick because I have used it for regular bread in the past. I used Bob's Red Mill mix and it made a decent bread - at least compared to the stuff I have tasted that is available in local supermarkets. I have read that gluten-free breads do best with two paddles or one kneading cycle. (My old machine does none of the above and it turned out OK.)

I just read a review of a Cuisiinart that has a gluten free setting- has anyone tried this model?

We decided that if we were going to get a bread machine.....and that this diet is for life, we were going to get a really good model. I love the one I have; it's a Zojirushi. You put the wet ingrediants in the bottom, dry ones on top of that, and lastly the yeast on top. It has many settings, or you can store your own settings. Mostly I use the basic setting. The machine does the rise cycle, mixing and baking and I don't have to do anything once the ingredients are put in. Love it! I will not eat any store bought gluten-free bread. The recipes I've tried so far have been pretty good (all of them taste much better toasted). Hope this helps

I have been looking at the model you suggested and I like that it has two paddles and programmable cycles. Can this machine be used to make 1 or 1.5 lb loaves? I am just cooking for myself and can't come close to finishing off a 2lb loaf.

I am in love with my new Breadman Pro (model TR875). It has a gluten free cycle and makes 1.5 and 2lb breads. The gluten free cycle only mades the 1.5 size but when I make Pamela's bread (love it!) I use the regular cycle (suggested on the package) and makes a wonderful 2lb loaf. I ordered from Lame Advertisement and got free shipping. It does have only one paddle but works very well. I also use the dough cycle to make my pizza dough.

oops! realized I couldn't say where I ordered after posting. You will find good deals for it by just doing a search for breadman pro. Good luck on whatever you decide.

I have the Cuisinart....this is my first bread machine and I love it. I have only had it about a month which is as long as I have been gluten free. It does only have 1 paddle, there are 3 bread sizes (1, 1.5, 2lb). I think the gluten free cycle works great...I just need to find a good gluten free bread mix :P


gluten-free since 2/2008

When you make breads at home, I'm sure they taste better than the store bought gluten free breads, which i personally hate... but how good are they? Are they actually comparable to real bread in any way? I really hate the store bought breads that I've tried and I don't know if its because they don't taste fresh or what the problem is. I need to try fresh gluten free bread I guess!

Wish there were a response to this question. I think a couple people indicated the bread machine breads are better. Anyone? How much do those mixes cost? Aren't they about the same as buying gluten-free bread pre-made, if not more? So far I'm used to not eating any bread anymore so I might be best off that way - pre-soaked, cooked whole gluten-free grains only. But the bread machine idea sounds tempting ...

My son was just dx last friday, I have ripped apart my kitchen to make room for his food and special areas he knows are safe since we are just learning and I want him to have some independence. I took out my bread machine from ages ago thinking homemade had to be better than the gluten free-brick I just bought at the store saturday. Question #1. -even if I wash the container will I still have cc? If so I will look into a new machine.

question # 2 are there bread mixes available out there , and what types of non-gluten flour works best for making bread in these machines? thanks so much, so far the transition has been rough and I am afraid my son is not eating enough of the foods he can eat and he can't afford to lose anymore weight.


It will be one year since my 13 yr old was diagnosed-doing good. Hoping my other two remain ok with gluten. Grateful for all the help!

There are lots of different mixes available. I'm not sure about the CC with the old machine... not sure I would take the chance... does the dough touch anywhere except the pan? Is it possible that flour dropped anywhere in the machine except in the pan? Anyway I have had pretty good luck with my Zojirushi and mixes by Gluten-Free Pantry. You will find that the bread is fabulous when it is fresh (a little crumbly) keep farely well if you freeze it and makes better toast than bread. (I eat it as toast with eggs and have yet to try grilled cheese or a toasted sandwich but I think it will work well.) You can also find gluten free bread in the freezer section of some specialty stores that is pretty good too... again I have only toasted it, since I am not much of a sandwich lover anyway. That brand is kinnikinnick. Also Namaste makes my favorite waffel / pancake mix. Pamela's makes fantastic chocolate chunk cookies. I could go on and on with my finds so if you are looking for something in particular, let me know. Good luck, it has been less than a year for me, I am afraid I will be going through the same thing you are in the future when I have children. Beth

I ended up buying a Zojirushi and love it, I did not want to take a chance w/ cc. I used a french bread mix, alot went uneating-since it is only my son, but I used the rest for bread crumbs for meatballs and they came out great!! thanks
