I don't know anything about the Bosch bread machine, but I have a Kitchen Aid with the gluten-free setting and it makes really good bread. There are quite a few posts on this board regarding the Kitchen Aid machine and some very good bread recipes as well.

Hope this helps. :D

I don't know anything about Bosch bread machines but I have a Bosch Universal (mixer/blender) and love it.

I think that the Bosch universal mixer/blender is what I am looking into getting. It has a bread mixer on one side and a blender on the other side. My mother used this for her wheat bread and I wondered how it would do with the gluten-free bread.

I love it! I make 3 loaves at a time. It does just fine. I've tried making 6 gluten-free loaves but it came to the top almost. Trying to save on the frequency of which I make bread. The whole family is gluten free so we go through a lot of bread.

Thanks Andrea, I have a large family too... so I end up making lots of bread! Three of us seem to do better gluten-free so we just do everyone gluten-free to simplify things. Thanks for the input - I am putting the Bosch Machine on the top of my wish list :rolleyes:

I love my Bosch. I don't think I could do without it. My mom has had a Bosch for as long as I can remember and she is the bread "Queen".

Since I'm new to celiac I haven't taken the time to experiment with gluten free bread. But I can't see why it wouldn't work. I use my Bosch for mixing, chopping, blending, food processor, everything. Absolutely love it!

How do you modify it to make gluten free breads? I have one too LOVE IT but will need to learn what to look for in the finished texture of the bread vs what i've learned on the gluten breads we make and love.

Do you mix it less than 8 minutes, speed 1? Any suggestions here is welcomed ......love some of your receipies you make in your bosch too. I called the center in AZ where I bought mine but they couldn't tell me anything about Gluten Free bread making.....what a shame!!

Hi,

I have had the small Bosch for 26 years. (This is the one that can make 3 loaves, not 5) Before Celiac, I used it to make 2 or 3 loaves of whole wheat bread every week for my family. I still use it to shred vegetables for slaw or pickle relish, stir muffin batter, everything. It is the best purchase I ever made for my kitchen!

I have used it to make gluten free bread for myself since the diagnosis. I had several loaves that disappointed me and believe I've figured it out. The last loaf I made using Betty Hagman's sorghum flour blend (without bean flour) and it did fine. I even took sandwiches to work with the bread I made.

The cookbook, Gluten Free Gourmet Bakes Bread, has instructions for mixer breads and that is what I used. Because the Bosch is so powerful, don't beat the bread batter for 3 1/2 or 4 minutes. Just beat for 3 minutes and use the 3 not the 4 setting.

Good luck

Linda

Happy baking. -Julie ;)

I grew up with a Bosch, my mom's lasted forever, so that's what I got when I got married. However, my sister-in-law grew up with a KitchenAid and didn't like her Bosch as a result. She ended up selling it and getting a KitchenAid. So, I think it's really what you are used to. I have the Bosch universal mixer/blender combo machine. It's great! It comes with the blender and food processor (I love that one), the mixing bowl, a dough hook and wire whisk mixing attachments so I bought the cookie paddle mixing attachments separately and I think they work a little better for gluten-free bread making than the dough hook since gluten free dough is so much stickier. I don't generally mix dough for a full 4 minutes, maybe 3 max and usually more like 2 minutes on medium speed and that has been just fine for me.

Good luck!

I have a Bosch and have always used it for Whole Wheat bread until recently diagnosed. I was concerned about CC with it though. None of you have had that problem?

I just cleaned mine really well (the bowl, all attachments and base unit) when we started the diet. We didn't have any problems with it. I have the plastic bowl and I think you'd be fine with just cleaning it really well, it's not like a teflon pan or wooden cutting board where gluten can seep into the pores. If you're concerned about stuff that may have gotten into the center shaft of the bowl, you can actually replace that part, or just buy a new bowl.

Good luck.

    • Following a gallbladder surgery, I could not get my digestive system back to normal.  After several months of constant diarrhea, I went to see the gastro dr. and told her my problems. I also mentioned that I had a sister, brother and nephew with Celiacs.  She said, "I'm almost sure that's the problem".  I, like you, did not want to go back to eating gluten so I did the gene test but it was not positive.  I learned it is not always an exact test.  It came back with Crohns which so far I have no symptoms.  The Endoscopy  indicated Hpylori, CDiff, and one other bacteria.  After I took all the meds to clear my body of these bacterias, I was still having  some symptons of diarrhea and found that I thought I was clear of all gluten but I had a long way to go. Throwing away a wooden cutting board my dad had given me, lipstick, lipgloss, makeup, handcream, plastics in the kitchen, pans that had a scratch, any item in the pantry that had any of the items with starch that may have gluten and the list goes on and on.  I'm still reading labels but I definately can tell a difference as I have eliminated more items that I had no idea were harmful.  This website has been a life-saver for me.  Thank You so much for your wealth of information.   Linda Fortson    
    • Just wanted to pipe in that my hair started going gray at 19. Started coloring it immediately and decades later, still doing it. I had the guts to go completely without coloring in my late 40's. i was fully gray by then, I used a wig during the hair regrowth period. Then one day I started again. And I'm a bit hypo myself but I have no idea if that had anything to do with it. My mom didn't start going gray till she was 50 but my dad started when he got polio at age 20. He was fully gray in his 40's. there's this one beautiful black woman on a tv show in the morning I watch sometimes with the disabled woman I assist, who has partially gray hair, and it is gorgeous on her. It's a cooking show that has several chefs on it but I have no clue as to what anyone's name is cause the sound is always low and we are doing other stuff!
    • Thank you! That was the thread I already found and am reading my way through.
    • Thanks for replying! I actually got a blood test for everything and it all came back normal. However, I was slightly anaemic which my doctor said should go back to normal in a few months. I guess I'll go back and get another or speak to the doctor if I am unsure. When I first went gluten free I was still very hungry and my gluten free food also didn't fill me up. I got the same dizzy spells and had to have snacks with me! However, now on the 4th month its gone the complete other way. Anyway, thank you for your feedback and help.
