(I am the) Bread Maker

I am considering a bread making machine.

I usually make 100% whole wheat (or any non-white flour) bread so I am trying to figure out which machine works best for that. Is it the machine or the recipe that makes the most difference?

So far I've looked at Breadman or Sunbeam machines. My budget is under $100.

Thanks for any and all advice!


  1. Let me know what you decide on this dilemma (machine or recipe?). Once we get settled into our house I am going to start a garden and some of things that I want to grow are pumpkins and zuchinnis cause those are two of my favorite breads. I would love your advice on recipes and a good machine. I make a whole wheat bread as well but have stuck with the same recipe and no machine every time.

  2. We make bread without a machine. Check out: http://www.nytimes.com/2006/11/08/dining/08mini.html?pagewanted=1&_r=1
