There's nothing like a loaf of fresh baked yeast bread. Homemade bread is so much better then grocery store bread. You can find a few good bakeries around that make a nice loaf, but the corner bakeries are a disappearing lot.
I like to make bread from scratch and knead by hand. Bread makers are okay, but the whole they leave in half the loaf gets in the way. I wonder why someone hasn't invented one of those bread makers that will retract the mixing hook or make it removable, before the loaf bakes?

I agree, bread machine bread just isn't the same, somehow. It never tastes all that homemade to me. And yes, the hole in the bottom messes things up.
I had a bread machine that I received as a wedding gift, and couldn't ever seem to get the darned thing to work. The old-fashioned way just seems much easier to me.

To me the best bread making machine is made by "Lefty and Righty"!! LOL
