There is little in this world I love more than fresh bread. (Except chocolate. And bacon. And possible the smell of a baby’s head. But other than that, I mean.) I try to keep my bread baking to a minimum because I will happily devour all I bake, but I love the process, too—kneading dough is a great way to get out frustration!
Lots of my friends tell me they’d love to bake their own bread, but simply don’t have time. I get that. And thus enters the market for breadmakers, bringing with it a huge array of choices and options. Looking for a sturdy basic breadmaker? How about this Sunbeam programmable breadmaker from Circuit City? It’s currently $37.99 with free shipping. (For comparison purposes: The same model is $44.38 at Amazon.) This one isn’t quite as sexy as that big Breadman we kept seeing deals on a while back, but it has great reviews, will get the job done, and the price is certainly right.
