Reviews - What do customers think about Bread Machines for Dummies?
Great for beginners to the bread machine world Sep 4, 2004
I can't believe more people haven't reviewed this book! It's been especially helpful to me because I bought my bread machine 2nd hand and it didn't come with a direction or recipe book. Most books for bread machines have instructions that say "add ingredients according to manufacturer's directions" well, if you don't have a manual, you're not sure what to do. This book solved that problem as the directions say to put the ingredients into the pan in the order that they're listed. A huge help to me!
The information contained in this book, from explaining what all the ingredients do and how they interact together to the helpful hints, possible "danger" areas, and shopping tips are invaluable. If you're new to bread machines or baking in general, you can't go wrong with this book. I think it's a must have.
Beginners or bread experts will like this book Jan 8, 2001
I read through this book before my bread machine even arrived. It has more than just great recipes, it's packed full of everything you could want to know about bread and bread making. It has an easy to follow format and even a good dose of humor. I don't own other bread machine recipe books yet, but this one was not at all intimidating .
