    Default Bread maker

    We are thinking we might get a bread maker and would like to know brands that people have liked, OR...which features should we definitely look for, eg: size. Any ideas? Thanks!

    We have one, just a cheap one, but we only use ours to mix the dough. We bake our bread in the oven. It turns out much better.

    I bought a breville one. It's great but the novelty wore off after a few weeks. If you get one, get a kitchen scale. It makes the measuring easier.

    Thanks. I know they can be a novelty, however we live on a farm and pay $5 a loaf in our nearest town so I think it's going to be worth it in our case when our twins start devouring bread.
    Can I ask why it turns out better started in the machine but baked in the oven? What's better about it? I've read this in a few places.

    Thermomix definitely not for me, I'm too 'old school' with my cooking, so even a bread maker is a stretch! But thanks

    I've got a Breville BBM800 bread maker and I love it! I've had it for about a year now and haven't bought a loaf since. It takes no time at all to put the ingredients in and then walk away and let it do its thing!

    You get a better crust, and IMO the flavour is better. If you leave it to bake in the machine it can go a little soggy if you don't take it out straight away.

    I never had any luck with mixes either until one of the ladies here told me to try wallaby's brand bread flour. Its the best I have used so far. it also comes with recipes ob the bag it comes with.

    definitely invest in a set of electronic scales if you don't already have some.

    Do you have a good heavy duty stand mixer?
    I make bread in my KitchenAid every so often when the mood takes me.
