A friend who is gluten intolerant is looking to buy a bread machine to make her own gluten-free bread.

Which do you like best and why? What should she look for in a gluten-free machine?

Thanks for your replies.

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. :)

Which do you like best?

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.

    • Ah yes... dry beans. I am fortunate to live near a plant that only processes beans, pulses and rice (Western Rice Mills if you're on the west coast). I doubt that they test, but I would suspect that the biggest part of the risk with that type of food is in the plant where they pack them, as things like barley pearls and wheat berries are often sold as dried goods and would probably be done on the same lines. I would agree that dry beans could be problematic depending on source. 
    • No, Armour has always been gluten free.  The formulation changed a few years back and during the switch, there was a shortage.  That has long since resolved.  Forest Pharmaceuticals (manufacturer of Armour) was bought out by Activas in 2015.  They increased the price!  Now it is comparable to synthetic.   Imtried to find a good and reputable source about the history of thyroid replacement.  Here is one link -- the story is pretty accurate, but the site is trying to sell you stuff.   https://thyroidpharmacist.com/articles/the-history-of-natural-desiccated-thyroid-medications/  
    • If she is now at a public school, accommodations can be made for disabilities.  Here is a link that explains a 504 plan and an IEP, but you will have to investigate based on your state.   https://www.foodallergy.org/education-awareness/advocacy-resources/section-504-and-written-management-plans https://www.understood.org/en/school-learning/special-services/504-plan/the-difference-between-ieps-and-504-plans http://kidshealth.org/en/parents/504-plans.html https://www2.ed.gov/about/offices/list/ocr/504faq.html i am not very knowledgeable about this subject, so I encourage you to contact your school district for help.  Your doctor might be a good resource too.   You might consider homeschooling until she has been diagnosed and has received treatment.  The Department of Education can direct you to homeschooling resources.  There are lots of wonderful programs out there and you can get financial support.   I wish you all well!  
    • You make a good point about being neurotic. I'm slowly getting better. I guess time will tell. But thank you for the insight.   As far as roommates go, that's a good idea. I've definitely been thinking about that. But these guys are my best friends and the process of getting a new roommate this late in my schooling might be hard. Although, I will keep my eye out for the opportunity. 
    • Hello I understand what you are going thru. My son almost died from going 27 years without figuring out it was gluten and then corn causing all the illness. I brought him to Drs, none of them figured out gluten intolerance. Oh they told us he had everything else. Then as time went on, he found out he has issues with corn. Corn has identical genetic make-up as gluten.  Corn is sneaky and everywhere. Contact the manufactures, ask them if there is a chance of contamination or corn ingredient in their products. My son gets neurological problems when gluten/cornized. Anxiety, obsessive thoughts, can not think. He had to be taken out of school and homeschooled. He just found out the digestive enzymes he was taking contain an enzyme that is grown on barley. Enzymedic basic.  My suggestions for you are, seriously go find another place to live. You need your mind and health to continue school. If you don't and continue living where you are, school will suffer. In your spare time, find out all you can about gluten and what other foods act like gluten in the body. Like I said, corn has the same genetic make up as gluten, some people can not eat rice either. This is something that is doable, it is just becoming very aware of what goes in the mouth. Please find another place to live. You don't need to deal with those jerks, you have enough going on with school and health. There might be other people in your school that are celiac or gluten sensitive. Find them, post notes up, start a newsletter about gluten free lifestyle. I bet there are many people that would welcome that newsletter.  You don't need to do this alone!   You are the most important person in your life, you deserve to feel good and be respected! Stay away from those that don't respect you. Search out those that will.  Eating out is something that can be done, find those places that will work with you. Ask to have burgers or meat cooked on aluminum foil. Fresh veggies, fruits all gluten free. Again, research restaurants in your area willing to work with you. Even call the manager and talk to them. All the best to you!  Hang in there.
