    Oh yes the smell will be wonderful all throughout your home Tex. And it does come with instructions and even some different kinds of bread recipes often. My mom always loved me to make her loaves of cinnamon raisin bread in my machine so when I would make some I would make a loaf for me and one for her. :) In most bread machines you can make a lot more than bread too. Enjoy yours. :)

    My oldest daughter "kidnapped" mine right after we moved back to Louisiana from Florida...and I haven't seen my bread machine since. :)

    My wife has a bread machine that she uses sometimes but I haven't used it. I used to make bread several times a year, but haven't done so lately. The last time I tried it, after having not made any for quite a while, it didn't turn out very well, so that was discouraging.

    I dug the Breadman machine out of the abandoned small appliance graveyard and decided to whip up a loaf today. :D I was going to make a whole wheat loaf but I noticed an easy french bread recipe so that's what's happening right now. My yeast was near it's expiration date so I hope the little fellows had enough energy left for a successful rise. Smellin' really good in here. :D

    The last time I tried it I gained thirty pounds
    and I think I gave it a way, the bread machine.
    Now here I am all these years later
    And my car won't start (it hasn't been driven
    or started in over a month). My portable oxygen
    won't work, so I can't go anywhere anyway.
    If I wasn't so darn happy, I be ticked off.
    I'd blame it all on that bread machine.
    But tell the truth, its probaby age related.

    Well. This certainly doesn't bode well for my future, Bill. Thanks for the warning; they should put a sticker on bread machines!!

    What is the "abandoned small appliance graveyard"? We tried bread-making in the 90s with good product results, when the machine worked! Bought a Sunbeam on the cheap, it quit working after several loaves, mailed it back to mfr as instructed, they sent a brand new one; it quit. Think we wound up with 5 or 6, after over a year, we gave it up. Bad production run for Sunbeam. Frank

    Hey Frank! (So nice to see you posting.) The ASAG is my way of referring to the cabinet in the garage that holds my poorly thought-out "must have" kitchen acquisitions. :D It's their last stop before Goodwill. (Pasta machine, bread maker, spirolizer, etc.) I have had good luck with both the Breadman machine as well as a Zojirushi that I gave to my daughter.

    Have you made rye bread? My favorite, yeasty-smell and taste, both my grandmas made it from scratch, huge, round puffs barely liftable by a lady working alone! About 2 feet in diameter, never shaped any other way.

    Hot homemade rye with butter........wonderful! Frank

    I'm not a big fan of rye bread, Frank. But I do agree with you about the wonderful smell of yeast breads. I made french bread yesterday and today it is the best toast!!

    "Rye bread tends to have a darker color and stronger, earthier taste than regular white and wheat bread, which is one reason why many people enjoy it.

    In addition, it has been linked to several potential health benefits, including better blood sugar control and improved heart and digestive health."

    "Rye bread is high in fiber and has an impressive nutrient profile."

    "That said, the exact composition depends on the amount of rye flour used, with darker rye breads containing more rye flour than lighter varieties.

    On average, 1 slice (32 grams) of rye bread provides the following nutrients (1):

    • Calories: 83
    • Protein: 2.7 grams
    • Carbs: 15.5 grams
    • Fat: 1.1 grams
    • Fiber: 1.9 grams
    • Selenium: 18% of the Daily Value (DV)
    • Thiamine: 11.6% of the DV
    • Manganese: 11.5% of the DV
    • Riboflavin: 8.2% of the DV
    • Niacin: 7.6% of the DV
    • Vitamin B6: 7.5% of the DV
    • Copper: 6.6% of the DV
    • Iron: 5% of the DV
    • Folate: 8.8% of the DV
    Rye bread also contains small amounts of zinc, pantothenic acid, phosphorus, magnesium, calcium, and other micronutrients.

    Compared with regular breads, such as white and whole wheat, rye bread is typically higher in fiber and provides more micronutrients, especially B vitamins (1, 2, 3).

    What’s more, studies have shown that pure rye bread tends to be more filling and affects blood sugar levels to a lesser extent than white and wheat breads".

    Like it or not, it surpasses white bread. Frank

    I have an occasional ham and cheese on rye, Frank. But it is not my bread of choice; I just don't like the flavor of it.

    I have been using my bread machine a lot in the past few weeks. I recently made a cranberry/walnut sweet bread (almost cake-like) and today I have a loaf of french bread baking. I bought a bag of whole wheat flour so my next attempt will be whole-wheat bread.

    A couple of days ago I used the "dough" function to make pizza dough; it turned out pretty good but I'm going to tweak that recipe next time.

    I also ordered some linen bread storage bags from Amazon. They look cute and keep the bread fresher without the crust getting soggy.

    Sometimes the alternate preferences of others successfully challenge those of my own. For example, plain, raised hamburger buns are BEST IMO for my burgers, EXCEPT Patty-Melts: Gotta be Rye toast!
