Programmable bread machine to create custom programs?
I have a bread machine at home, which I don't really use anymore (except to get the dough kneaded sometimes). It has a few pre-programmed settings, all of which are pretty much unusable (kneads for like 30 minutes, bulk ferments for 1.5 hours (with a degas at 45 mins or something), then goes into bake cycle. I would like to actually use a bread machine on occasion (think working days:)) if possible for kneading and part of the bulk ferment. I think it'll work out well if I could actually program the machine to create a custom program to (say) knead for 2 mins, rest/autolyse for 30, bulk for 3 hours with degas at 1.30 hours. Then I can take out dough shape, proof, and bake manually. Yes, it won't be the same thing as hand-kneading till I get a windowpane, doing stretch-and-folds, and watching the dough, but I believe it'll still be better than most bread I can buy (and of course MUCH better than using the default programs in the machine).
Having said all that, I cannot create such custom programs in my machine. Are there bread machines where you can create custom programs like above? Any suggestions for such machines? Thanks!
