Someone asked what Bread Machine I use. My first machine was a wedding present over 14 years ago and I used it to death. I was sad that I was going to have to take my chances and buy another one but I really lucked out. I got a regular old Sunbeam bread machine. It was the cheapest one that I could find at Wal-mart and the only bread machine on the shelf. I was desperate and grabbed it, hoping I didn't just waste all that money. Come to find out I love the thing. I really like the shape of the bread pan, plus it has a gazillion different settings and makes JAM!
So if you're shopping for one I've got a link on the left sidebar to Amazon where you can get it cheaper than I paid for it at Wal-mart. It also received great reviews from over 300 people. I love reading through those.
P.S. Nobody is paying me to say this. I just heart my bread machine THAT much.
