I have a reg bread machine and I have used it with Bob mills mixes. We have found it is good fresh from machine but doesn't keep well and freezing makes it worse. Hubby likes it for toast but falls apart for sandwishes. Taste is fair. I usually make it the day I am fixing stew or need garlic toast to finnish a meal out.

I never got the hang of baking with yeast, so we will be going into uncharted waters and purchasing a bread machine this year. I looked up "Breadman" machines on www.epinions.com and it gets really good reviews.

If there are any models to stay away from, please share. Thanks!

I love this forum!

I have the Breadman too. The only failure I had was when I used the GF cycle. I use the light cycle like others mentioned and it comes out soft, moist and a lovely tall loaf. Mostly I've been using the french bread mix from GF Pantry, but I've also made some from scratch.

I have a Breadman machine and I really like it! I have made one loaf of GF bread and it turned out great! I actually used a recipe from the Bette Hagman cookbook and put it into the bread machine! I used the light setting and the 2 lb loaf. My son loved it for sandwiches and toast! I need to make another loaf!

Well, if I eat bread, I don't lose weight too. This was true before celiac dx when I ate whole grain and now, when I eat gluten-free. I have cut way down on grain carbs since diagnosis. That's what works for me.

Personally, I think for me being obese, that bread/pasta are empty calories. It just raises my insulin and maybe it has something to do with Syndrome X, I dunno. I'm not prediabetic that I know of either. I have tested my blood glucose off and on. When I eat gf bread, gf pasta, gf cakes/cookies - my glucose DOES goes up.

I just know I don't lose when I don't eat enough vegetables, protein, and less so, fruit. The more of those I get, the more I lose. It's a matter of doing it that's hard. You have to eat more often and I hate eating at the computer when I'm on SP - lol!

What I don't understand is how you folks can make and eat bread and still lose weight. If I make bread (and I used to) and that smell fills the house, then I am apt to eat a LOT of it compulsively. So if I want to lose weight my husband keeps "his" bread in the freezer and I know if I eat that bread it will make me violently ill, so I don't eat it. How do you manage that?

I also have a breadman and it does not have a gf cycle. It cost me around $100. which is CHEAP. On my other support site the Zojurishi sp? is the recommended machine, but it's close to $200. I use Bread by Anna mix, or Pamela's Amazing bread mix and my bread is heavenly. No heat, My 10 yr old can make a loaf it's so easy. I strongly recommend a bread slice rack to guide your slicing. I ordered one off ebay.

emoticon Yes I have a Breadman machine and I love it. I use Gluten Free Pantry bread mixes and they turn out marvelous.. They don't crumble, make excellent toast and warm slice of this when it comes from the maker is incredible !! It is so easy and love the smell when it is baking.. and not heat in the kitchen. You will love it.. I don't have a GF cycle but have had excellent results emoticon Kathy

I have one hat has a GF cycle. Frankly I rarley use it (the gf cycle that is) but I use the bread machine every time I make bread.... I love it but I have a 2 year old running around (and I do in home daycare so usually its more than one 2 year old running around) If I were to do it freehand I'd forget about it an it would be ruined!

Thanks so much for the link!
I haven't had bread, except for rice crackers since I started this diet in May. I'll have to save up for the machine. I marked it on my Amazon wishlist.

Hi Tracy. GFGoddess uses a Breadman; her site doesn't specify a model, just that it has a gf cycle. Her site has photos (Amazon has it; it's been on my wishlist a while now ... sorry, no experience with this. I usually freehand it.)

I was wondering if you have ever used a bread machine to make GF loaves? I'm considering buying one, as I would like to be able to bake my own bread. It's just that in the summer it's too hot to turn the oven on. I thought that perhaps a machine would solve that problem.
If you've done this, can you recommend a good brand of machine?

I live 30 minutes from anyplace that sells GF products, so being able to whip up a loaf of bread would be nice.
Thanks,
tracyw
