Starter Bread Machine
Hey everyone, as I mentioned in my introduction I am very new to the world of bread making (on my own). It is something that I was sparsely taught by my grandmother but since she has passed I now have all of her recipes but none of the knowledge. I am trying to get there, and my first step is to make some bread with a bread machine so I can learn a bit more about how the ingredients react to each other while having some-sort of a helping hand.
What should a beginner baker be looking at for a bread machine? I am guessing that the more expensive the machine the better it will perform/more user friendly it will be but I don't want to be spending too much right now. Ideally I would like to spend about $100-$200, a bit more for a brand new machine. I was looking at Kenwood, specifically the Kenwood Bm540 as I have seen some decent priced used ones for sale around me. Should I be looking at something a little less extensive, or maybe something that would require me to do more? Thanks for all of the advice in advance everyone.
