I never thought baking bread could be so easy! I have fibromyalgia, so kneading bread dough is very difficult for me. I used to avoid masking homemade bread. Now, with my Breadman, I make bread all the time. Nothing says home like the smell of fresh baked bread. I also use it for making dough for pizza, cinnamon buns and dinner rolls. Very useful item. I keep a spare just in case this one ever breaks. The spare comes in handy at holidays when I bake more items at a time.
