We have always used a standing mixer to make the dough and then to bake the bread in the oven. sometime later this year (aug/sept) we will be moving to Rutland MA and because of limited space we want to buy a bread machine. are there any recommendations. I like big loaves of bread so the bigger the machine the better for me. Also, can you just make the dough in the machine and then take it out once it is done to use for other things besides bread?? also, does the dough rise in the machine or do you take it out like normal so it can rise?/

thanks again

I only have experience with one bread machine, and you just put everything in at once and it does everything, kneads, rises, bakes etc. i would not think you could take it out once it is started but have never tried.

So, Herbie, what did you end up buying?

Mine walked right off the counter and fell on the floor; Sad I'd had it 20 years.

It had a setting on it called "Manual". If you chose that setting it would do all the work right up to, but not including, baking. That is the way I always used it. I prefer to bake my bread in my own oven.

Temporarily, I am using the dough hook with the Kitchen Aid mixer.

the brand i bought was crock pot and after 5 years the cover broke and they were nice enough to send me a replacement cover free of charge. i love making bread with mine.

it has a high, low and warm setting
