Brenda honey, did you ever hear of a bakery? LOL Actually, I'm jealous of all of you making your own bread. Pretty cool. I only like pumpernickel.

thanks for your input everyone. I'm not sure what Dad will decide. I did realize that they don't have much extra counter space and it would be a large-ish machine to lift for either of them. Then, where to store it? So in that way it might not be the best choice. Dad did buy the Flavorwave 1000 or something, which was huge on the counter, Dad insisted Mom use it but it really didn't work that well. It looked like an alien spaceship to me. She complained about the counter space but hasn't mentioned that about the bread machine....
Maybe they will have to go to one of them there ba-ker-ies Kerry : 0

Now I'm onto meat grinders, Mom wants to get one for Dad.

How long does this take anyhow??

OK here I am, and Dad did buy a Breadman bread machine for Mom for Christmas and she does seem interested in using it so we are trying it out....we pressed 'start' 2.5 hours ago and it hasn't started baking yet....it kneaded the dough, which I thought was too dry , so I added a little water at a time - so this would delay the process I thought.... there seemed to be a resting period and 2 little quick kneads now it's 'resting' again to rise, I assume.

Still waiting for the baking...the manual doesn't say how long each step takes, the timer was at 3:25 at the start and now is at 1:30. Maybe in 30 minutes it will start baking.
Does this sound typical for using a bread machine?

I've never used a bread machine, but I would say mixing and kneading 30 minutes max. Then 45 minutes for first rise, punch down. Less than 45 minutes for second rise, punch down and form. Ten minutes rise, then bake.

Did you set the timer, or is that automatic?

Oh, never mind...I'm no help.

Do let us know how it comes out.

It usually takes around 30 minutes to bake, depending on how dark you want your crust. Usually it will mix the dough, let it rest, knead the dough and let it rise, then repeats the kneading one more time before it lets it do its final rise prior to baking. It smells so wonderful when it is baking-- makes a house seem like a home to me

thanks ladies....turns out it started baking during the last 60 minutes, it looks good. Yes, it's automatic so just press one button and wait, you open the top during the kneading part and check to see if the dough is too wet or too dry, and add water/flour if needed. Other than that, you just wait. I think it will be fun to try different recipes.

We just returned the Emeril machine we bought a month ago. I tried it twice. Not worth the trouble. Fry's and Costco have nice french bread that we like better.
