Another Breadmaker Question

Recommended Posts

We want to get a new breadmaker since there is no way to really get all the flour out of the current one we have. But I keep reading about the breadmaker needing a special gluten-free setting - is that for the dough making process or the baking process or both. Because I plan to use mine only to make the dough, and then I'll bake it in the oven - I just like the size of the loafs better that way. I was hoping to get away with purchasing the $49 Breadman at Targets instead of the more expensive version of the Breadman. How do I know if that will do what I need it to do? Is there something on the box?


May 2007 - Emily went dairy free

April 2008 - took her back to pedi - she was getting worse

April 24, 2008 - first consult with Pedi gastro specialist

May 5, 2008 - doctor's office called with blood test results - Celiac levels highly elevated

June 9, 2008 - Emily's endoscopy

June 11, 2008 - doctor's office called with Emily's Celiac diagnoses, she has it

So now our new life begins, and hopefully that will be a happier, healthier life for her! I am glad I followed that little maternal instinct telling me something wasn't right!

Here's my little sweetheart:

I am the mum of a 4 yo daughter who was only diagnosed at the start of this year and thourght it would be cheaper to bake her bread myself. I mix and bake the bread in the breadmaker but if you would rather bake in the oven I don't think it should matter too much if it has the gluten-free setting or not mine doesn't but the manual tells me what setting to use but it is also a case of trial and error and I have had some of thoughs and I just had to laugh because my daughter was still happy enough to eat the bread mum made. Some breadmakers do however have a gluten-free setting on them but sorry I can not remember what brands, all I can suggest is that maybe if you google "gluten free bread makers" and see what you get. Good luck with it and happy bread baking. :D

I bought one of the more expensive breadman pro's because of the gluten free cycle and guess what...I rarely use the gluten free cycle! I would go with the less expensive breadman from target especially since you only want it to make dough. Good luck and happy bread making!

Thanks!! We got the less expensive Breadman, and I will making a bread mix tonight, so hopefully this will be an edible mix, and she will have bread to eat tomorrow! I really want to be able to make her a sandwich, it would make life a little easier that's for sure! I went the route of buying a bread mix this time, rather than messing with all of the ingredients again!

Iknow exactly what you mean. I usually use Pamela's bread mix or gluten free pantry. Yesterday I made two loafs in my bread machine. The first one I put in 2 tablespoons of molasses, 2 tablespoons of sunflower seed and 2 tablespoons of chopped almonds plus 1 table spoon of poppyseeds. An excellent look alike wheat grain bread! The second one, I added 2 tablespoons of italian seasons, 1/2 tsp of onion powder and 1 cup of grated parmesean cheese. I love the way my kitchen smells when I'm baking bread! Your daughter is very lucky!
