Is Zojirushi or Breville worth it for dough only?
This is only my second post on this board, but I'm hoping somebody with bread machine experience can give me some advice. I have an old Breadman that I've been using for as long as I've been making bread - I don't know exactly how old it is; I bought it at Goodwill about 7 years ago and have used it twice a week since then. However, it's recently developed some problems after "walking" off my counter twice, and in addition I'm now seeing some rust on the pan. So, I think it's time to replace it.
I've been looking at a Zojirushi machine or a Breville, but I'm wondering if you all think those are worth it for dough only - I don't like the way my Breadman bakes, so I've always taken the dough out to raise and bake it in my oven. My guess is that I will mostly continue to do it that way, since my family is partial to Pullman loaves. I have no interest in doing dough by hand or in a mixer - I am a working mom with three small kids and I do not have the time for it. I have the money for either of these machines so cost is not a concern.
If it matters, I mill my own grain, although I figure either machine can handle that. And I need a 2 lb machine at least because of the Pullman pans I use. Any suggestions or advice would be much appreciated!
