Received my new, mean machine on Tuesday. I finally got the time and the nerve to give it a maiden spin. Right now I have two sandwich loaves of 100% WWW bread and some honey-cinnamon rolls in the oven.
I decided to use the dough hook the first time out, since the recipe had 7 cups of whole grain flour. It figured it was included for a reason. I actually think the dough hook looks less intimidating than that roller system.
I have tried to read as many Q&As as I could on this thing. I really wanted to try to avoid wasting ingredients at this time.
So far so good. The dough shaped very nicely and seems to have a nice rise in the oven. I have never used this recipe before, so I hope the flavor is up to my usual standards. It was so nice to do more than one loaf with the machine doing most of the work. I wish I had a camera for posting pictures. I will let you know how the final product comes out.
