we did away with our breadmaker and replaced it
with Wolfgang Pucks 800 watt mixer. We use the same recipe as the breadmaker and use the dough hook to mix with. It takes only 5 minutes to mix put it into bread pan let it rise and bake. makes great bread. If you are going to cruise outside the US it''s hard to find flour for breadmakers. So try a recipe for bread and experiment. That''s what we did and we our bread is great and takes very little time to make.
But as we traveled outside the US we found that making Tortillas was easier. So we make more tortillas than bread now.
