    Years old one of a different mfg, but I still love the little tike filling the house with the smell of fresh bread.

    AND you don't have to heat the whole house...AND you can still use the stove for something else if you're cooking a meal.

    I have loved my breadmakers, they were worth the money for the period of time I used them..I was able to work and provide my family with homebaked bread A LOT with minimal mess and bother.

    I love bread. I don't know if it's the bread itself I love, or the fact that it can be used to shovel other stuff..like heavenly masses of BUTTER and JAMS and HONEY...or sometimes mayo and sammich stuff....into my head.

    I make pretty good bread and like I said, I've made a lot of it including in industrial kitchens (but even more in my own I think).

    I miss my bread machine, I should get another one. And I'm saying that even though I did without a microwave for more than a year to save counter space in the same kitchen.

    Yeah there is a downside to that...

    Homemade bread is delish when it's fresh.

    It's only fresh for about a day, and it does and will dry out and mold much faster than store bought.

    I made bread fro years instead of buying it...it was easier and cheaper for me to do so when the kids were little. I was going through about 25 lbs of flour every 6 weeks or so.

    They HATED homemade bread in their lunches. So funny because my mom said she did too...and her mother made beautiful bread.

    I think homemade bread sammiches are the best thing ever.

    True that. But what i plant to do is make about one 1.5 lb loaf every 4 or 5 days and that should do us fine. It's just my wife and I and the cat, and he don't don't like it!
