Kneading is just too much for my wrists. I have a Zojirushi 1 lbs bread machine (we're a family of 2 so this size is perfect for us). It took some trial and error but I can make some great bread in it. It's also great for making dough for pizza or rolls.

I've never tried no knead breads so I have no comment on that!

I bake most of our breads. I use my trusty Kitchenaide mixer with the dough hook attached. I do knead the dough for a couple minutes before I place it to raise in a greased bowl. I have a delicious 7-grain whole wheat bread recipe that is wonderful and filling. I will send the recipe to you if you'd like it

I make my own bread, whole wheat with some white flour, about 2/3 whole wheat, 1/3 white. I only use the bread machine if I'm desperate, the loaves are too small and too soft. I have made the no-knead but didn't like that as much as my bread that I knead with the mixer, and I forget why. I make mine using my mixer with the dough hooks. I'd really like to do the kneeding by hand but I have arthritis in my hands and that makes them hurt. So, if you have a mixer with dough hooks, I really recommend you try that. Do not overkneed, that causes the bread to fall apart. It still tastes good, but doesn't hold up for a sandwich. If you want the recipe I use, let me know and I'll send it to you.

I don't like how the bread comes out baked in the bread machine. It is very handy for making dough, though. I like to use the no knead recipe and throw it in the bread machine on dough cycle, then leave it overnight, or through the day. When I'm ready to bake it, I take it out, form it into a ball and put some flour or cornmeal on the bottom and bake it in a Dutch oven.

I am thinking of starting to bake my own bread.

the thing is I am debating between the no-knead method and bread machine method.

if you like bread machines - what kind do you use?

if not how do u like no-knead method?

thanx.
