Without my bread machine, I would not bake bread. Like most on this thread, the machine is used for mixing and kneading. Bakes in the oven. Mine is many years old and lacks the gadgets of the new ones. I have found that a second rising out of the machine enhances the texture for my taste.

That's true for some, but not all, bread doughs. Enriched doughs most often are best with a single rise, then shape, raise and bake. Basic Flour, salt, water & yeast dough definitely improve with an extra rise.

True. That's why I let the machine do only the kneading and, then, I handle the rest.

True. I mostly bake yeast dough breads. Just pointing out that may be one reason for a difference in taste of hand kneaded and BM kneaded bread.

Ditto here, kneed and first rise then I shape, let rise again and finish in the oven. So far the only difference between doing it all in the bread machine and finishing in the oven is I like the texture better on the one finished in the oven.
But the only taste difference I get is between different recipes.

My machine does ok, but since I retired, I do most of my bread dough in my KA stand mixer (Pro 600). I knead for a couple of minutes by hand after I take it out of the mixer bowl, and of course punch down and work it a little for the second rise when required..

here are two pics of the bread I made today in my bread machine; raisin cinnamon ww bread. I usually have to make adjustments to the dough during the kneading cycle, but after that, it is on its own until I take it out of the machine

I don't know what I'm going to do. My sister said i could have her old Breadman but I used the cabinet space that used to house the bread machine for an extra pasta pot.

The only time I really want it is when I have a few people coming and want to bake my own challah - to buy them in the stores are usually $4 something each.
