    Always fancied one, but it would be a disaster for the waistline.

    From what I've found out, Panasonic is an excellent choice.

    ^^ Good luck.

    I brought over a breadmaker from the UK when we first settled in Korat... in 2006.

    It's still in the box.

    The trouble with home made bread is it doesn't last long so you have to eat it fast. And unless you know what you're doing, it tastes awful as well!

    Bought a "Severin" brand bread-maker a few years ago, but could never got the mix right. The bread weighed a ton after it was baked, seemingly defying logic (and physics) during this process...

    Anyway, the heavenly smell of fresh bread baking was almost worth the effort, if nothing else.

    I've heard that these can make some really good bread, so good luck.

    I also reckon it I'll be in the box in a cupboard after two weeks, never to be seen again. Useless appliances 101.

    Will start on the bread tomorrow.

    Does anyone know the difference between these flours...and if not fancy a free holiday and dropping a few dozen kilo off to a friend in Thailand?

    I am not the world's greatest cook, nor baker, but i got a S/H bread machine from my Dad after his wife died, and if you follow the instructions to the letter, you can't go wrong.
    Note different machines have different methods ie water first or flour first, stick to your specific maker's instructions.
    I make about a loaf a fortnight, when i can be arsed, and they come out great.
    The smell of fresh baked bread is wonderful.
    Like most machines you can make two sizes/weights, so make the size that your household will eat in 24-36 hours.
    Give it a go.
    Good luck.

    As a guess I'd say the one on the right is higher in protein.

    The one on the right states it's "Japanese", the one on the left doesn't.
    The one on the right states it's RM6.50, the one on the left right states it's RM3.50.

    Is Japanese flour/wheat "superior" to that arriving from "other" countries?

    Bake the same recipe for both and tell us what differences you experience.

    ...or a sourdough starter in tropical climes.

    Imagine what we could learn and adapt to do [the simple art of making bread] without the virulent gadgetry that some become dependent upon.

    Nice effort.
    Best to ya on your homogenous bread making, Dills.

    The great thing the machine does is all your needing and dough making, you can then take it out and use an oven for baguettes and whatever.

    Imagine all the Thai crickets you could collect and deep fry and betlenut chewing Village women you could root in that time Jeff

    About the halfway point



    Making a medium loaf. Teaspoon of yeast, 400 grams of bread flour, 15g of butter, teaspoon of sugar and one of salt and 280ml of water.

    Couldnt find a way to turn it down to 4 hours instead of 4 and a half so in a dilemma whether to take it out 30 mins earlier.

    No smell of bread in the house yet and I heard some funny noises coming from it earlier. Maybe I didnt put the kneading knife in properly.

    Expecting a Chitty Crocker style outcome.

    I dunno...

    After the novelty wore off, everyone I've ever met who had a bread machine ended up stashing it in a cupboard beside all their other *kitchen aids never to see the light of day again. Not much beats a really good loaf of bread and people who make them for a living in Bakeries have got it down to a science, often using recipes and techniques that've been around for centuries, then they sell their beautiful products for a few bucks. Ok if you're living in the middle of nowhere it's maybe an option, otherwise It's one of those things best left to the experts IMO.

    *Including but not limited too:
    Juicers.
    Sous Vide machines.
    Electric steamers.
    Food processors.
    Sausage makers.
    Mincers.
    Egg cookers.
    Electric knives.
