Who here has a bread maker? What brand? Do you like it? I SUCK at making bread, partially because my oven sucks, but it always turns out like a rock. It's gross. A friend has a bread maker and she sets it before bed and wakes to fresh bread!! The book also has a ton of recipes for all sorts of cool breads. I would be able to buy in bulk and have fresh bread for a fraction of the price of bread I buy at the store.<br><br>
Is it worth the price?

I have the breadman ultimate. It makes a 'traditional' loaf<br><br>
It makes wonderful bread. Of course I play around with the recipe but <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"> to the bread.<br><br>
I paid a bit over 100 for mine

I'm using a Welbilt I got for $2 at a yard sale. It works ok but I'd like to update. I find the 1lb loaf too small. I want a 1 1/2 to 2 lb size one, a program for sweet breads so the crust doesn't burn, a soak cycle for whole wheat breads, and a timer.<br><br>
Anyone tried the Sunbeam breadmaker? I saw one at Walmart for about $40 and it had whole wheat and sweet bread cycles.

I have the Zojorushi (spelling...not sure) and it's great. I think it's between 2 and $300, maybe like $250?<br><br>
I actually use it now to just make the dough, then I put it in 2 pans in the oven. I have double convect ovens, and we are huge bread eaters ( plus I make special diet bread for my sister) so I usually take one day and make like 6 loaves for the week or 2. DH needs his sour dough with tzatziki so he can kill me with his garlic breathe every morning, plus I make whole grain. Now that I have it I don't know how I used to stand over the counter at night kneeding it. sometimes I let it bake in the bread oven, and it makes a large 2 pound loaf. But usually I just put one batch of dough in after another.<br><br>
I really have gotten some use out of that thing. And I never thought I would own one because i'm a bit pretentious when it comes to certain appliances <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"> ...or rather, I used to be.

Ditto. Pizza is a staple here, and it's so cheap and can be really healthy.

I have the Oster 1.5-2lb loaf traditional size one. I love it, and use it sometimes 2-3 times a week. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">
