I know nothing about the sunbeam bread machine but the problem with many of the machines is that after a few uses the motor over heats & the machine dies. If you haven't used it yet you could take it back...

I can honestly say the zojirushi is a work horse... Love it, love it......

I got a bread machine with a gluten free cycle and the only thing it made is something like Play-Doh. I have found a recipe that makes a biscuit-like bread using a Cuisinart, if you're interested.

We have a Cuisinart breadmaker that I now use for gluten-free bread and so far all the loaves have come out yummy! I make them for my son who is the celiac in our house, but if it wouldn't be so much extra work we would all be eating his bread. I have had great succes with recipes from the Donna Washburn and Heather Butt cookbooks and also with a recipe from the recipe book that came with our Cuisinart. (It has a gluten-free cycle as well)

I agree about breadmakers breaking all the time though! This is our third breadmaker (we made our own bread for a couple of years) and it's the only one that has lasted longer than a year.

Anyway, it works great for us. My three little ones keep me super busy, so for me it's good to have a more hands-off way of bread making. (Although I figure that with the mixer method I could make a double or triple batch and save time that way.)

What does the "gluten free cycle" do differently from regular bread-making?

Kneading amount and rise time is different. Here's a little write-up explaining:

Follow the directions/recipe carefully, though, because some call for a gluten free bread cycle and some don't.

Meanwhile, he's a really easy recipe for little cheese-bread biscuits. No bread maker required.

I use butter instead of oil, and for cheese a mix a parmesan and cheddar.

I have the sunbeam bread machine and I love it. I have used it dozens of times. I follow the directions the bread maker said which is all liquid goes first; then flour and make a little pit for the yeast. You will have to help it mix a little since the flour sticks to the side bu from what I have read this is normal. I also use the gluten-free setting on the machine and my bread is great. I hope this helps.

I've just been cooking from my oven and have made a bunch of amazing bread. Cheaper, too. :)

Yes the oven does good to but you have to either run gas or electric oven for an hour to bake bread. I used to do that, best thing I ever did was buy a bread maker.
