    Any Home-made bread makers here?

    With all this extra time on my hands since retiring, I thought I'd like to spend some of that time making our own loaf bread here at home.
    I don't have any problem making it the regular way, and baking in the oven, but I thought I'd like to try some of the new-fangled bread makers they sell on the open market.
    Most importantly, I'd appreciate some feedback on any bread makers ya'll may use, or have used, and found to be worth the expense, and which brands do I need to shy away from, for whatever reason.
    More or less, looking for something reliable and user friendly.
    Thanks folks !!!

    Ms. Superglidesport is an amatuer baker. She specializes in pumpkin bread, banana walnut bread, olive bread and spiced squash bread. She also makes a killer pumpkin roll that's loaded with her special cream cheese, frosting filling. She's working on perfecting her version of Portuguese sweet bread too. No bread maker but she has a huge collection of bread and cake pans.

    I do not use a bread maker or machine, but I do make homemade bread. Willing to share ideas for that, if needed.

    An older unit and Babycakes has made a lot of bread with it. I would imagine the newer units are even better.
    We call it "R2 D2"

    The bread loaves do come out a little smaller.

    I should have mentioned in my earlier post that Mrs. Superglidesport bakes a great beer batter bread that makes a good sandwich even better. It's fantastic just toasted with butter or jelly. It also occurred to me that when she bakes she usually makes multiple loaves for us, our friends and her commuter train buddies so both ovens are usually being used. I guess a benefit of the bread maker would be for making single loaves.

    EDIT. I just checked with Mrs. Superglidesport and she educated me on the benefits of the bread maker. Apparently it does all the work for you! Mixes the ingredients, proofs it and then bakes the bread.

    Sometimes I sort of consider that a problem. If it's been a while since we made bread the first loaf is gone really fast.

    Wife does all the baking ,and makes all the old fashion way in the oven. Our oldest daughter has a older bread maker , just not sure what brand.

    For a laugh-- My grandmother died in 63 , (according to dad ) made the best home made biscuits.. Dad ask grandma to show my mom how see made them and to give her the recipe..
    Grandma showed mom one weekend, so one day that week mom surprised dad with HOME MADE BISCUITS..

    Only problem ,,,they were so HARD , not from being over baked . My brother and I took them outside and we used them as a baseball...No kidding.
    Took hitting them 3-5 times before breaking to pieces. Mom was upset but a good sport and even took a couple of hits , we all laughed.
    Mom talked with grandma found out what she did wrong...

    After the first failure ,,, the rest would melt in your mouth.

    Smaller is ok, just the two of us.
