jm not-so ho, i'd save the $ & get a kitchenaid- the only work is the kneading anyhow, & it does that very well (in addition to other things).
(i have a blob of sourdough- real sourdough from a pioneer starter, no store-bought yeast!- rye rising right now- i make several loaves a week. it is soooo easy). feh, bread machines!
there's *tools, & there's *gimmicks. (yes, i am opinionated about this subject- if you love your bread machine, god bless you, but for someone just thinking about getting one, this is my experience.)
had a breadmaker a decade ago, it was a piece of hard-to-clean plastic crap, it gathered dust, i threw it away. now my kitchenaid... that's a family heirloom. my dd will get it one day, & i expect i'll have grandchildren using it. i love that thing! and yes, i got it primarily for bread.
