Katie can probably answer this for sure, since she uses hers so much, but I believe the recipes are pretty generic. You can buy cookbooks for making bread in bread machines that are not machine-specific: Amazon.com: bread machine cookbook

I have one that we got at a garage sale for 10 bucks. I never really use it though.

I use my bread machine 3 to 4 times a week, sometimes more, never less. I also only use it to knead my dough for loaves of bread, for dinner rolls and pizza dough. Once the dough is kneaded I remove it from the machine and finish the bread in the oven. I have many years experience making whole wheat bread in bread machines, but can not for the life of me make a decent loaf in my current bread machine. Therefore, if you want to make whole wheat bread, I can not recommend a Zojirushi. It works great to knead dough, but I am sure you can find a cheaper machine to knead dough.

I think it's against the law to buy your own bread machine. You have to receive it as a wedding or anniversary gift or inherit it from a dead relative.

Hitachi, I believe. Makes Jam & Rice, too. We use about once every 2 or 3 years.

So true - thats how I got mine. I got it from my grandma's estate. I use it to make dough whenever I make pizza dough or cinnamon rolls. I only use it maybe 6 times a year.

I own the Zojirushi.

If you can afford it, it's the one to get.

Hmmmm, I could afford it.... I didn't get one.....
Seriously, what separates it from other bread machines, other than the price? Longevity/warranty, crust, shape of loaf, footprint? There must be something. I did read about it, but couldn't justify the cost from what I was reading.

Thanks for all the great responses. This has been very helpul.
There are some of you that take the dough out and bake it the oven, does the bread come out better if baked in the oven?
Do some of the machines have a timer? Fresh bread in the morning anyone?
