Looking For A Bread Machine

Recommended Posts

I miss bread so much since I have been gluten free. I've tried a few loaves from the store and really have not found one that I just love, and I hate paying the price for them too. So I'm thinking of getting a bread machine and making my own. Does anyone else do this? What kind of machine do you have? Do you buy mixes or make your own bread mix from scratch? I am looking at the Breadman TR875 model, as it has a "gluten free" feature. Can anyone explain that to me?

Hiya:

I am only guessing here but I imagine that the "Gluten free setting" on the breadman you are looking at - basically has it go through only 1 rise (usually the 2rd of 3).

gluten-free loaves always have the consistency of cake dough only and they only need to go through one rise cycle. They actually take a shorter time to make than wheat based breads - about 2 and a half hours. Someone who has the breadman that you are looking at will know exactly what the Gluten free setting exactly does, however.

I use a Zojirushi Deluxe, which I LOVE.

It's the machine with two paddles and it makes a rectangular loaf instead of a square one.

Plus it cooks beautifully.

I use it on a programmable setting which prewarms, mixes, rises, and bakes.

I have made some beautiful loaves in this machine and I am very happy with it.

Good luck :)


Long history of IBS, and stomach/intestinal problems. Low on iron for all of my life.

Low on energy, with aches and pains in my joints and in my whole body for as long as I can remember.

Mostly lactose intolerant for all of my life (except for yoghurt)

Diagnosed in 2003 by naturapath as wheat intolerant. Tried it then fell of the wagon. In Feb. 2010 tried going gluten-free.

Went back to the poison in March, 2010.

Tested negative for celiac in April, 2010 (based on negative biopsy and normal tTG test). IgA tested 30-40 percent higher than normal.

Not going to fight the diagnosis because I refuse to go back to the poison. Happily gluten-free for health reasons as of April 2010, and not looking back.

I felt a little bit guilty plunking down ~$200 for my Zoji after going through two $30 bread machines pre-gluten-free, but it is the best thing. Evah. You can program it for different cycles and while other bread machines will also make jam, the Zojirushi will make things like cheesecake and meatloaf, since you can program it to turn the beaters off completely. I just made a mess of cherry compote because I hit the end of the year sale. Cheesecake.

Your call.
