well they sell a bloody bread maker but no bread mixes? They do sell cake mixes in Carrefour though, why not bread mixes? This isn't Europe but it's also not Afghanistan. .so everything is available somewhere.. maybe. Maybe some people even haven't heard about it.. but hey, sorry for the question :cool:

The flour isn't really a big deal, but I didn't have any problems like that with mine.
In fact, I had the opposite problem with the loafs getting too big and hitting the lid and expanding in the area between the top of the tin and the lid...
No idea what's going on though, but yeah, you might be better off investing in an oven...



No? Try making a bread with cake flour ... bread is made with high protein content flour (high gluten) so, you at least need all purpose flour or high gluten flour ...

Kneading needs to be long enough to develop the gluten (they need to stretch without breaking) into a mesh that holds the CO2 produced by the yeast ... although too long over-develops gluten and the bread will collapse ... making bread is not an exact science, but it's close ... not every idiot can make good bread ... so, it's not idiot proof :ohreally: :whistle:

I was talking about the small white dots of flour on the outside of the bread, sorry if that wasn't clear Mr Baker...
We're not all pro's you know, but despite that and despite me not making Belgian/French bread, I make some pretty kick ass bread that I'm sure you wouldn't like anyhow, as it's not up to your standards...
But hey, I'm just going to put you on my ignore list from now on, it's much easier than having these stupid arguments with you about the difference of home baking and professional baking.

I've been looking for a bread machine for years and had no idea they were available at Costco - I'm a Costco virgin. However, I was elated to find them at Carrefoure last week so I went back yesterday to purchase my new toy. I had no idea Kaiser had such a bad name and assumed it was a German brand, lol. If I had read this thread before I might have had second thoughts.

Anyway, it's a BM 260 and has two kneading paddles which seem to be doing a good job.

I just read through this whole thread and although Mawvellous problem was back in November and he probably tossed his BM out at the end of year toss all your crap out in the street season, I wonder if the problem is in his use of butter - 3 tbls. I hope the butter was melted, otherwise it may account for the mixing problem.

You can always take it back -within one month I think- and purchase the Panasonic one in Mitsukoshi, for about the same price. :wink: Costco takes returns, no questions asked, immediately.

If anyone is using another brand of breadmaker, please let us know how happy (or not) you are with it, the brand and model number, how long you've had it and how often you use it (perhaps in another thread entitled 'breadmaker reviews'?).

I did something I never thought I'd do ... ever, I bought a UBM ... unassisted bread maker, it's just a bread machine ... consider it a cheap toy, paid 1,000 NT$ for it second hand. I found out I makes darn good bread. But no manual, no recipe book ... so, I have to rely on my knowledge from years of baking ... first loaf, fail ... second loaf yummy... third loaf I did with stone ground whole wheat and stone ground spelt mix ... just wow!
The machine is a Kaiser UBM-700 ... works as a charm, and is really easy to understand and use, has a low learning curve even without a manual.

I know what you mean... a member of this forum lent me hers and I'm using it a lot. I use honey instead of sugar and sometimes I partially substitute water with milk, and the bread I get is so nice.

BTW, where do you get the spelt?
