What the hell. In for one. I've been craving bread lately anyhow.

alien4321 02-14-2013 04:02 AM

Thanks. I'm in for another one. I bought one the last time and use it about every 3 days with no problems. I now have a cheap back-up.

Fairly good price for this presumably Sunbeam OEM model.

Not sure about the Sunbeam but in the last SD on this (http://slickdeals.net/permadeal/81732/newegg-rosewill-rbm01-2lb-programmable-bread-maker?&page=4) the Westbend 41400 was noted to be the same. I dug up up the West Bend's User Manual and recollect it as essentially the same as the Rosewill.

89titanium 02-14-2013 05:59 AM

Isn't this just an oven?

Or does it do the kneading, folding, rising, etc for you?

ozborn 02-14-2013 06:16 AM

It does everything for you, you just dump in the ingredients, it will kneed, raise and cook.

It is basically the same OEM with different brand names on it.

Does anyone know of any good resources for bread-maker recipes for gluten-free, yeast-free loaves (e.g. using brown rice flour)?

Pre-sliced loaves can be found in some health foods stores, but they're ridiculously expensive.

TylerJ_COE 02-14-2013 12:37 PM

I bought this last time it was 40. I am in college and this thing pretty much kicks ass. Amazingly simple and easy to make different breads. Includes recipes, but you can also find great ones online. Found a great pumpkin spice bread recipe online. My friends are always impressed.

I have 2; 1 that I use weekly. Love it. Trying to figure out a way to offload the 2nd one, though. Maybe as a housewarming gift.

You really shouldn't need a bread machine for a gluten and yeast free recipe (assuming you already have an oven). The whole point of the bread machine is that it does the kneading (for gluten development) and rising (for yeast development) automatically. Your recipe would be a quickbread (chemically leavened) which doesn't need all those steps. Just mix up the batter and bake.

Oh and I have used the sunbeam branded version of this breadmaker and it is impressively adequate for such a cheap little thing.

Thanks! I'll have to look into those types of recipes.

I was hoping the bread-maker could pull double-duty. I love bread, and I'd love to make bread with wheat flour, rye flour, add some wheat-berries, etc. My wife has the gluten and yeast restrictions, so I was trying to pitch this is a convenient alternative to buying specialty breads from the store.

michi098 02-14-2013 09:13 PM

Bought one of these about a year ago when it came up here on Slickdeals. Love the thing. Only recommendation I have is that while it is mixing, give it one good sweep with a spatula as it sometimes doesn't get the ingredients in the very corners and when it bakes you get some weird end pieces.

Recently found a great bread recipe which includes one egg, was the best bread I had gotten so far. If I can find it online, I'll post it.

itzstatic2k1 02-14-2013 09:16 PM

I bought this for around $25 a few months back using a Newegg GC I had, I cannot get it to make a edible loaf for the life of me. Maybe it's the yeast I use or something but it does not work well.

I never get why people say they got things for a certain price, without taking into account the value of the GC they used. You paid $25, PLUS the GC value. It maybe only $25 out of pocket for you, but the cost should still include the GC value because you could of used the GC on something else.

Mind telling us the GC value so we know the final cost you got this thing for? :)

You'd probably need to buy a second one for non-gluten use only. My sister and her husband have separate toasters, etc. Cross-contamination issues.

rr423 02-14-2013 09:39 PM

can you make pizza dough?

Stomper88 02-14-2013 09:52 PM

I have one of these. I use it to make french bread and pizza dough. It does a great job with both. I wish it wasnt so big. Also, I wish it would tell you more about the stages and times in the manual. Sort of a guessing game what the machine will do with each type of bread.

I stash it under my counter when not in use. It's too large to leave on the counter. I would say its about the size of a small microwave.

Spend 2 minutes dumping ingredients in a machine, push a few buttons, and 3-4 hours later, the house smells like a bakery.

Never used one of these. Is it possible to make smaller loaves than 1.5 lbs with this? Can I simply add say enough ingredients to make a half pound loaf and still have it work, or will it mess it up some how?

charlie hustle 02-14-2013 10:46 PM

In for one, sick and tired of ridiculous supermarket bread prices ($4 a loaf in San Diego) so I've been waiting for a good deal on one of these.

Not really. Doesn't work as well as with a full loaf.

duenor 02-14-2013 11:59 PM

This is a good machine that is about 95% as good as a $200 zojirushi. I have both.

Easy low fat sweet bread recipe:

1 cup water
2 tb butter unsalted (or apple sauce for fat free bread)
3/4 tsp salt, any kind
3 tb sugar, white or brown
3 cups white flour, any kind (or 2c white, 1c whole wheat)
2.25tsp yeast, any kind (bulk pack cheap yeast will do just fine... as will expired yeast as I've found)
3tbsp of crushed walnuts (optional... )

add liquids, then dry ingredients, then make a divot in the middle of the flour pile and pour in yeast. this keeps yeast from premature contact with water.

set to "sweet bread" setting, light crust (if option available).

---

another option - this is what I do - don't use it to bake.
just use the "dough" setting. when dough is done, sprinkle corn meal liberally on a pizza stone or cookie dish. plop dough on top of corn meal, and bake 22 mins at 350.

I've made bread without salt that was fine to me. The salt helps activate the yeast so you may need a little more yeast. I don't need to add more yeast if I leave the salt out but I'm at high altitude where bread rises better.

Use fresh bread flour and yeast and it should work fine. For the price this works great. It's not quite as good as the Panasonic I have if I get the ingredients just right in the Panasonic but it's not near as picky about everything being just right as the Panasonic either.

lemontart 02-15-2013 01:45 AM

Anyone have a good recipe for a healthy bread (whole wheat) that is moist and does not have any any white flour or sugar?

iheijoushin 02-15-2013 04:23 AM

Is the deal dead? NewEgg lists the price as $59.99 with the $20 Off the coupon, EMCXVWS62, already used.

Can anyone else confirm?

jottect 02-15-2013 04:25 AM

I am using bread machines for the past 8..9 years exclusively to make my own bread, almost daily; in fact I make ONLY the dough then I bake it in the oven; sometimes we make pizza dough.
As a result I have gone through several (cheap) bread machines so far (5 I guess).
I ordered this one two years ago on BF as a spare. Last spring I started using it and so far it is holding well against initial thinking that it is cheap and won't last.
In for another spare!

Check out amazon. A little while back they had a free book for kindle on gluten free bread mixes. Not sure if it's still free but maybe worth checking out!

I just placed the order with the same code (EMCXVWS62) for $59.99 - $20 discount. I can confirm the code is still valid as of 4:45am. Perhaps you can use another browser.

That'sa lotta yeast your URL shows at Amazon! Over the years, we've been buying a double 1lb pkg (2lbs total) of Fleischman's standard yeast at Sam's club for about $4.85. It lasts us 15-24 months.

Oh... we also buy 100% stone ground whole wheat from GFS for about ~$20 a 50 lb bag.

Mmm... fresh whole wheat bread! :drool:

My 2 penny. If you are going to make a smaller amount then the full load, try to find BM with a small rode at a side of the bucket (or add it yourself). Otherwise the BM cannot do a good dough.

The Panasonic just makes better bread in sandwich mode if I use the recipe in the manual. The sandwich recipe for the bread maker here calls for fast acting yeast which I've never used, can't find it in bulk anywhere around here, maybe that's why it comes out better in the Panny. The Panasonic just uses regular yeast. For the price of this vs the Panasonic this is a steal at this price. The Panny is only a little better at 2 1/2-3 times the price. This bread maker is far more forgiving when it comes to ingredients, the Panasonic they have to be just right for good bread, this one is pretty forgiving on ingredients. I can't think of any features the Panasonic has that this doesn't.

so does sandwich mode make a different bread? i though it all came out the same...sorry to bug you on this...I just like bread, I may put some prosciutto di parma on it, or some thing else to eat it with perhaps, but I can do that with regular mode i imagine....does sandwich mode slice it up for your or something?

Sandwich mode just makes a different texture of bread. It's softer and less chewy.

I don't know what chiabatta is but all bread makers have a dough mode that you could use for pizza or bread dough.

The Sunbeam 5891 and West Bend 41400 are the same bread maker and can be bought from Amazon Warehouse Deals cheap sometimes. I picked up a West Bend for $36 from AWD. It was new just not in the original box.

The manual has it backwards, salt helps activate the yeast.

If it's straining the dough is too dry, add a little more water. It's best to weigh the ingredients if possible. I have the weight per cup if you have a gram scale.

I've made TONS of bread with mine (I buy the 25lb bags of bread flour from sams club and I'm almost through my 4th bag). use it every day and so far it's holding up great :) I bought it the last time it was on sale

The manual has it backwards, salt helps activate the yeast.

If it's straining the dough is too dry, add a little more water. It's best to weigh the ingredients if possible. I have the weight per cup if you have a gram scale.

Thanks, that makes total sense and explains why my loaf was lumpy on top. I do have a scale, could you post those measurements?

The sunbeam manual also states that salt prohibits yeast activation, and goes into a fair amount of detail regarding this. Also the internets seem to agree that salt is bad for yeast http://reluctantgourmet.com/seaso...kill-yeast

My wife buys our bread flour in bulk from Earth Fare and it is not inexpensive, but she gets it there because it is organic... I'll definitely not save any money making my own bread this way, so I'll take a look at BJs to see if they have some bulk bread flour. Can't be worse off than buying a non-organic loaf, anyway!

One cup of flour is about 139 grams, 139.4 to be exact, that's white and whole wheat both. If you weigh the flour you'll get consistent results every time. Everything else you can just use measuring cups/spoons.

Thanks. Not sure I have the lab setup required to repeat the salt stressed yeast study but I'll sleep easier when my yeast is exposed to salt ;)

I've never used a bread machine before & I need some advice, please. I purchased this deal & I'm trying to use it for the first time. The manual says that you should run it in bake mode for 10 min to get rid of any smoke/smell. I set the menu to 12 (bake mode), adjusted the time, & pressed start, but nothing happens! The timer counts down, but the machine is not heating up. Am I doing something wrong or is my bread maker defective? Please help!

I did not adjust the time. It defaults to 1 hour in mode 12. Just let it run for 10 minutes or so by pressing start, then when the timer hits 00:50, hold down start for 3 seconds to stop the clock. I have a feeling that what you did is set the delay timer (for when you want a fresh baked bread to wake you up). So what would happen is that the 1 hour bake cycle starts after a 10 minute delay.

Best of luck!

Does anybody find the confirmation of a 2 year warranty as stated on Newegg site. Neither manual nor producer site mention that...
