You can get a Cuisinart (excellent brand) refurbished bread machine for about half the normal price. That way, if you find you no longer want to make bread like Charlie or prefer the hands on method like kadesma, you aren't out a whole bunch of money. I've purchased a number of Cuisinart refurbished appliances and they are just as good as new ones, or maybe better because they've already broken and been repaired!

So where do you get these refurbished appliances? Sounds interesting. I have a couple of their equipment and am very happy with them. Also a couple of pans.

I think mine is a Breadman. I used to use it all the time, but then stopped. Stiil, I was glad I had it on hand a couple months ago when I realized I was out of bread and didn't want to run to the store. The yeast and dry milk in the freezer were apparently both still good. I can make my own loaves by hand, but I hate the proofing and rising and simply having to pay attention to what is going on. The bread machine makes it the exact same way every time without fail.

I just spent the last few hours on Amazon looking at breadmakers. I forget which one, but there were more one star reviews than five stars. I left that one really quickly. I believe I have one in mind, but will think on it more. It is in my price range. The only reason I want one is because of the kneading. Can't do that anymore. And maybe if I make the bread myself, I will get to liking bread again.

When my kids were small, there was an Italian bakery just around the corner from our home. During the summer the kids in the neighborhood were allowed to stay out late since it was just too hot to sleep. At around 11 p.m. The kids would come in and get a clean dish towel, some change and a stick of butter. Go to the bakery's back door, get a loaf of bread as it came out of the oven and sit on the front steps tearing it apart and smearing it with butter that would just melt into the bread. Come September and school nights, the practice would come to an end. To this day the kids always talk about this when they get together. A really happy childhood memory.
