The Toastmaster Bread Machine works well for making dough. I primarily use this machine to make dough, which I then use to create other pastries or baked goods such as pizza, rolls, breadsticks, etc. Sometimes I even use the dough to create dumpling skins too, which is fantastic because you just place the ingredients in the machine, push the settings, and off you go. No need to knead and get a work out just making dough! As for the actual bread itself, if you so choose, you can easily make raisin bread by mixing in raisins, or cranberries, or anything else that you want to add to your bread, very easy. Sometimes the crust can be tough around the edges, but the inside of the bread is fluffy and warm once you slice into it.
