There really is nothing as delicious as homemade bread.

Even in the busiest of kitchens, new style bread makers offer the homeowner some real advantages over baking bread the traditional way.
Bread Maker Features

Less Mess Means Less Hassle
If you have ever tried to bake bread the traditional way, you know all about the huge mess left behind in the kitchen after making a single loaf. In addition to a counter top full of flour, you have dirty measuring utensils, dirty bowls to wash, and a bread board to clean. All that mixing, baking, and kneading all is done inside a sealed appliance that reduces your clean-up time significantly. Kneading the dough needed to make a loaf of bread is hard work. The bread maker eliminates the need to take that huge lump of dough and knead it, twist it, turn it, and squash it, trying to find just the right consistency. The paddles in the bread maker do all that work for you, keeping it at the ideal temperature, allowing the bread to rise perfectly each time.
