If you get arthritis in your hands, you may change your mind about bread machines. Ask me how I know. :sad:

I've been baking bread since 1967, following my grandmother's example. We first got a bread machine around 1990 and one of the joys of a bread machine is that you can program it to start the bread during the night and have fresh hot bread ready for breakfast. Yum. It's like having elves working for you.

Also, I was teaching then so could only make bread the conventional way on the weekends, in addition to it hurting my hands to do the kneading. The advent of bread machines was a Godsend to us. A mixer with dough hooks is another good alternative to hand kneading if you want to form the loaves by hand, which I sometimes do. Yes, I miss kneading dough but that's life; things change and you have to adapt.

Aiee, I never meant to imply a judgment on people who use bread machines. What gives? Use your bread machine for whatever reason you like. I don't like them. My old roomie and I had one once, and it was a pain in the butt. There are surely better ones that aren't a pain in the butt, but they don't satisfy my reasons for making my own bread and the product they deliver, while good, is inferior to conventionally made bread.

Okay, I take it back: Someday I MAY use a bread machine if making bread by hand becomes too difficult. But that isn't the case now, and I want recipes that employ conventional methods.
