    At my local Savers I found lots of bread machines that were still like new. Bought one for $12 that looked unused.
    Found out that people use a recipe and it comes out hard so they get rid of the machine. Just like hand made bread it has to feel right to come out right.
    I live in Phx AZ so you need to add more water than a recipe calls for, lots more. It needs to feel soft and wet to the touch.
    I test the dough several times during mix cycle. Mine now comes out just like homemade.
    I love the book Whole Grain Breads by Machine or Hand. Author Beatrice Ojakangas. I have to add alot more water than the recipes call for, not quite 1/4 cup more.
    The family loves to get a loaf of my bread and it is so easy to make with a machine.

    I am on my 3rd machine! Love the homemade bread. I was thinking the other day to get mine out and make some bread. Since its just he/I here now, I don't use it as often, however, I can make some bread and freeze the remainder.

    This machine makes the crust a little harder than the older ones did. There is a thermostat where you can adjust it. Haven't done it yet.
    If anyone has, please post.

    I have two machines and sometimes have them both going when we're having a crowd in. I love letting the machine mix it for me and then forming the breads myself, depending on what bread I'm making.

    I live in Phoenix too and I never heard of having to add more water. No wonder my first attempt was hard. Haven't had the courage to try again, now maybe I will, with all these ideas and recipes. Thanks!

    The above recommended book can be purchased used from Amazon for $5.60. I just bought one, having never used my bread maker, it will be helpful.

    I am on my second bread machine. Love making raisin bread. Usually freeze the loaf and just toast a slice at a time.
