I like Cuisinart. It has a gluten-free cycle and isn't too expensive.

I like Zojirushi because they are dependable, consistently reliable and last a long time. But they are expensive. I see they have a newer model with a glutenfree setting but it is about $250. I still use the one I have had which is programmable and I program in the rise, knead and bake times. But never buy the smaller Mini Zojirushi machine for gluten free bread...it is meant as a spacesaver, has too tall a pan and only one paddle and doesn't stir well.

Your friend should look for one making sure it has a glutenfree setting, 2 paddles, makes a 1 and 1/2 to 2 lb. bread and has a horizontal rectangular shaped pan.

I have a Sunbeam bread machine and just use the regular bread cycle. Its a bit older and doesn't have a gluten-free cycle.(someone who had one that never used it gave it to me) Ive also read where you can use a rapid cycle because gluten-free bread doesn't need to rise as much as a regular bread loaf. I haven't tried that yet though because Ive had much success with the regular bread cycle. The only downfall to that is it takes 3 hours and you really need to be there when it finishes. gluten-free bread cannot sit in the machine to cool because it will get soggy.

It is true you can use a regular bread setting. I did it for quite some time before I ended programming in my own settings. And what a big difference my own settings made in how the bread turned out and it takes an hour less time. I enjoy my bread now as it is more like bread should be. The regular setting made the bread too compact and tougher and dry and it would fall apart if I made the slices too thin. Quick cycles can also be used but the baking time may not be long enough and you may have to finish cooking the bread more by placing it in the oven for a few minutes.

Glutenfree bread needs only one knead cycle and only one rise cycle and usually an hour baking cycle. I know there are several types of machines out there these days with glutenfree settings and that is why I recommended it for purchasing a new breadmaker. A programmable bread machine would certainly be a fine choice also but you would have to program in the settings yourself and I thought since there are now machines out there with glutenfree settings it would be a lot easier just to get one of them.

In my days of making regular wheat bread I went through 3 different models before I ended up getting a Zojirushi which I still have 10 years later. This thing really takes a licking and keeps on ticking. :)

Sanyo ECJ-F50S

and why?

It was a gift!

As non-bakers it's been great for bread and to rise my pretzel dough. Also doubles as a rice cooker and is far better than our past "cheap" rice cookers.

    Potatoes are good for breakfast! Your concoction sounds pretty good. K, how about this? Peel & dice potatoes, fry them in just enough olive oil to keep them from sticking in a skillet until they begin getting crispy. Toss in diced sweet peppers or maybe chili peppers, onions to soften. I know you're not doing egg yolks b/c of iodine but you can do the whites. Pour egg white on top until the white is done. If you have a steak or some leftover steak, you can heat that on the side. YUM!
    Hi Mom, I am so sorry you're getting the run around. Yes, the links worked for me too & that poor little thing! Cyclinglady gave you excellent advice. I really can't add anything to it but everything she says is right on. Keep advocating!  Read this: https://www.sjsreview.com/8752/features/sophomore-establishes-celiac-support-group/ I found how you can contact her. GenerationGF.Houston@gluten.org Here's the web page. Scroll down to the TX groups. https://gluten.org/k
Wow!  I can say thank you in Polish, but can not spell it.  This is a bit off topic, but I will post this here and then open a new topic.   A month or so ago, a guest commented on an article that Celiac.com had published.  The guest mentioned that she has been a celiac for decades, long before the gluten free craze.  She noticed that she is now getting more gluten exposures compared to the years when there were very few gluten free processed foods on the market.  Interesting.
