Making your own bread gives you the chance to try a variety of breads not easily available elsewhere.  Essentially every culture around the world has some form of bread in their diet.  Your bread machine will allow you to experiment with hundreds of recipes that can expose you and your family to a variety of taste and textures that can be used to compliment meals.   Plus bread machines do all of the heavy lifting.  You simply measure and pour.  You'll appreciate the variety of breads and doughs that you can make hands-free, and your family will appreciate the taste of fresh baked breads, rolls and sweet breads.


By making bread in a bread machine, you can control your health choices by removing some of the unhealthy factors associated with store bought breads.  One way is to control the gluten content by following gluten-free bread recipes that are recommended for those who need to remove gluten from their diet.  You can also control the amount and combination of whole grains that are contained in your bread.  Even finding several combinations of fruits, grains and nuts that make tasty recipes that the whole family enjoys.  Many store bought breads are deceptive about the real content of whole grains in their breads.  you can eliminate the confusion and even improve on taste and quality of what is available in the store. 

There are many health benefits to owning your own bread machine.  However still the best thing about owning one is the smell of baking bread as is fills your home.   Mmmmm.
