First – yes, a loaf of fabulous bread a bread machine does make. However, that’s simply the tip of the bread machine iceberg. When I realized that not only can you go from start to finish in the machine and fill your kitchen with intoxicating bakery smells – the machine can also double as an extra pair of hard-working kneading hands, well, no bread was off limits. Make the dough in the machine, take it out and roll & twist your way to any bun, baguette or loaf your little heart desires – any bread beyond the loaf, is a batch of well-kneaded bread machine dough away. And if that’s not enough to get you going – how about jams, cakes, meatloaf,  and even dog biscuits courtesy of your breadmaker. Shut up! No, you shut up!

PS For all you non-bread machine owners, if you don’t have one – 2 words – get one! Fresh baked bread every single day is yours for the taking. This is one of the few appliances out there that will earn its keep at break-neck speed. Let’s do the math – even if you go for broke and spend a couple of hundred dollars – that’s 40 loaves at $5 each which, if you’re feeding a family, might last a couple of months. So there, now that it’s paid for itself by Christmas, put that bread machine front & centre and start baking bread like humans have been doing since someone discovered that pounded grains and water makes awesome bread – look who’s baking now!
