Bread Machine Risotto?

November 4, 2011 - 8:43am -- aturco


I got an email from KAF today talking about the Z bread machine and how you can make risotto in the bread machine. I have a bread machine, its not Z, its either a kitchen aid or a cuisinart and only has one paddle. My questions are:

1) has anyone ever used their bread machine to make risotto and how did it come out. Is it worth it.

2) the recipe on KAF looks pretty good, do you have any recipes that you know are proven and would you be willing to share?

100% whole wheat low sodium bread machine recipe

April 12, 2011 - 11:24am -- Breaddie


My question crosses topics, and I did search the forum best I could.  I want a 100% whole wheat bread machine recipe that is low sodium.  I was just given a bread machine(used), so I've never made bread in it.  I have baked bread once or twice manually in my life so have little experience.  These are my questions

Bread machines- France:instant! Japan:Rice

February 20, 2011 - 5:59pm -- RobynNZ

Couldn't resist sharing a link to David Lebovitz's post:


and how about Sanyo's GoPan!  This rice bread machine was released in November and has been a hit in Japan with sales beyond their projections. In Japanese cooked rice is called 'gohan' and bread is called 'pan' so they've come up with a cute name for the machine  combining the kanji for rice and kana for bread  and assigning the pronunciation GoPan (米ぱん)

bread machine problem

December 12, 2010 - 12:43pm -- djmorrow

I bought a Food Network bread machine and the bread is not coming out right. I have searched for a way to contact some form of support, but they don't seem to offer it.

My bread machine basic setting defaults to 3 hours, which seems to me to be too short.

Even using recipe from the manual, and also using other bread machine recipes, the bread does not rise properly and a 2 lb loaf comes out about the size of a 1 lb loaf, and too dense. I have tried 5 loaves and only one of them came out sort of OK.

Any advice or pointers to where I should look for info?

Bagels in my Zojirushi

November 12, 2010 - 4:32am -- Kitchen Barbarian

I have the Zojirushi BBCC x20

I would like to make bagel dough in it, but I'm worried that with such a stiff dough I might damage my machine.

I've seen several postings where people talk about making bagel dough in their machines but sadly no actual recipes or bagel-specific info.

Would anyone be willing to share their experiences with making bagels in their bread machines?

I have these recipe links that have bread machine instructions:

KA blog and hand kneading vs bread machine

August 27, 2010 - 5:36am -- wayne on FLUKE

I just read the following blog on the KA website.

Near the end there is a photo that shows two slices of bread, one kneaded in a bread machine, one by hand and points out the machine kneaded one is much lighter and airier. It doesn't say why!
