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

Welcome to the boards...sorry I can't answer your questions, I don't own a Bosch. But I thought I would welcome you!

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.

    • Hello!  When I find myself up at odd hours, I put on this celiac disease Mozart for Meditation... https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B000VFQ58U/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1516086445&sr=8-1&pi=SX350_PI_PJPrime-Sash-Extra-Large-2017,TopLeft,0,0_AC_SX118_SY170_QL70&keywords=mozart+for+meditation+celiac disease And I get out my dot to dot book, like one of these for adults.... https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/s/ref=is_s_ss_i_0_5?k=dot+to+dot+books+for+adults&sprefix=dot+t&crid=2B42N4PRIT56H Sometimes I knit mindless objects such as hats, washcloths or socks.  Knitting has a soothing rhythm to it and is easy to learn... Or I read a book about knitting and life... https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/1603420622/ref=mp_s_a_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1516087016&sr=8-2&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_FMwebp_QL65&keywords=McPhee+knitting&dpPl=1&dpID=51fHYy2xXsL&ref=plSrch Or a knitting mystery.... https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B001LRLJUG/ref=mp_s_a_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1516087587&sr=8-6&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_FMwebp_QL65&keywords=knitting+mysteries&dpPl=1&dpID=51z43F8UuuL&ref=plSrch Knitting is really easy to learn.  I find it soothing to work with natural fibers, organic cotton for washcloths or luscious alpaca for socks...  But I find it inadvisable to shop online in the wee hours...  😸 I've got way too much yarn now...hee hee hee...  besides, the light from electronic devices keeps your brain awake longer.... Hope this helps.... Knitty Kitty  
    • My only symptom was slight nausea. Lasted 6 months before it started to only happen if I ate too much food in a sitting. I would eat simple, bland foods and eat 6 small meals instead of three big ones.
    • I've lost some of my sense of taste due most likely to zinc deficiency from not eating beef for a couple of years. Zinc supplement doesn't seem to help, but eating .5 to 1 lb of beef per day definitely does help. I noticed a positive change within days of eating beef. I don't know if your diet includes beef, but if it doesn't there's a reason for you.   Zinc and Geographic Tongue
    • I was in your same boat when I was diagnosed. Terribly fearful of cancer and all the damage I unknowingly had done. I don’t cheat, but I’m not as good as I need to be at restaurants (I only order off gluten-free menus but I don’t talk to managers like I should, etc) and I eat out once a week with never having symptoms. My main symptom is absolute, complete brain fog. I am truly not the person I used to be. I’ve always had anxiety, so that wasn’t any worse, but I hate to say this about myself but i got “dumb”. It was my first week in nursing school when I was diagnosed. What a great time, huh? I had to stay at school until midnight-2am 4 nights a week just to try to focus and control this brain fog. I used to be smart, quick witted, and very present in the moment. I know life changes, but my life is busy yet very peaceful and I struggle with this daily. I can’t comprehend medical concepts quickly like before and it’s very depressing. I also have a pretty good diet but have weighed 165 (I’m 5’4”) for three years with doing cardio, training for marathons,  etc..nothing gets this weight off (have had thyroid issues since age 7). Anyways. You are not alone. My doctor diagnosed me 5 years ago and told me to stay gluten free and I never saw him again! No follow-ups... I had no clue I had to! Anyways, I have an appointment upcoming as well.  Best of luck to you ❤️
