Then the person who gave it to me found the manual, and the instructions were in fact, right on the money.
I was one of those purists who never wanted a breadmaker. I could see how they might be time-saving, but just was not going to spend $100 on one, besides which, I LIKE mixing and kneading bread.
Well, when one came up for free, I thought I'd give it a try. Our schedule is insane this year and I just hadn't been able to bake bread as often as I wanted. I was sick and tired of the additives in store-bought bread and even suspected some of them as contributing to DS's behaviour problems.
I very quickly fell in love with the breadmaker! I loved being able to set it at night, and wake up in the morning to fresh-baked bread. I loved being able to put in the ingredients, then "walk away" and do something else. It actually saved a lot more time than I thought it would! Plus, I ended up making healthier breads, more often.
I loved it so much that when a new, fancier breadmaker came on sale recently, I bought a new one... a horizontal-loaf model. We're going to re-freecycle the Regal.
I don't buy ANY store-bought bread anymore. I even use it to mix the dough for poori (Indian deep-fried bread I make at least once a week), or hamburger and hot dog buns... cinnamon rolls... doughnuts... everything!!!
