    My best memories of bread are when my mom and I would make “monkey bread” on Sundays after church. Just thinking about it, makes my mouth water! YUM!

    Let me just say that I love bread, especially yeast rolls. I have missed it more than anything, since going gluten-free 3 weeks ago. I am so excited to learn about the Zojirushi Home Bakery Machine! I would love to give it a try along with the great recipes in the cookbook! Meals are just not the same without good bread:(

    I am a newly discovered Celiac and all the bread I have tried so far does not measure up to “normal” bread – one of the items I miss most. I am determined to find yummy gluten-free bread and have been considering a bread machine. This one is fabulous! To win it would be an amazing start on this new adventure.

    My attempts at making gluten free bread for my wife and daughter have resulted in something that resembles a dry cracker more than bread. With a Zojirushi, I’m sure I could create a tasty bread that they would love. And I could surprise my daughter with a birthday bread for her upcoming birthday on December 20th!

    Kelly, I was given your website link from Jenna La Flamme. I am sooo glad that she did!! Finding solutions to my gluten/dairy issues is like finding gold!!

    It took 30+ years of learning how to cook “regular” foods…now I have to start from scratch and learn a whole new way of creating foods for the rest of my life!! A bread machine would be an awesome addition to my world!!

    I love and miss fresh sourdough bread. I think this has been the hardest part about being GF…..good bread. I love to stand in the bread aisle at the grocery store and just breathe in the wonderful goodness!!! The staff always looks at me funny….I just smile and walk away!

    I was just told by the doctor today that it’s in my best interest to “strongly consider” a gluten free diet. I bake my own bread each week, and have no idea how I’m going to make that transition. I love pizza dough, flour, olive oil, salt, water, and yeast. I could always go with rice flour and make flat bread?

    So I do not have to live gluten free. I am not a Celiac. I am actually not allergic to anything–except for maybe math or Mondays.
    However, I have had the pleasure of working with a beautiful woman for the past nearly four years, admiring her from afar, trying to remain professional–not know that she felt the same way all along. As our professional relationship strengthened (I am a marketing professional, and my company hired her as our graphic designer/consultant) so did my admiration for her.
    To make a long, but romantic story short, she slowly began to cut back on the amount of work she would do for our company. Before I knew it, the work she did for us evaporating. Her presence at my job was vanishing–and i didn’t like it. I confronted her and that’s when she revealed that she could no longer work for me, because she could no longer hide her feelings….toward ME.

    YES i was excited…….and nervous. Over the course of the next year, we have blossomed into a full and breathtaking relationship. This beautiful woman has loved me like I never imagined. I was finally able (after years of being hurt and thankfully healing) to pour all of my love into the perfect vessel just for me. We have been there for each other through so many things–she’s help me come out of the closet to my family. I helped her through some tough times too.
    Too many to mention her.

    We celebrate all of our similarities…and differences. We are both creative. We are both foodies. She is a Celiac. I am not. Everything she eats MUST be gluten free—she taught me everything she could about it, but mostly, i had to learn on my own. And since we eat most of our meals together, MY kitchen needs to be gluten free as well–and it is. Bread has been a challenge for us (yes, i have adopted the gluten free lifestyle)….and we have often toiled over whether or not ONE of us should get a bread machine. I LOVE bread, so did she at one time, but i refuse to eat it in front of her when she can’t enjoy the same pleasure.

    We always cook together–often sharing pics of our gluten free tasty fare on facebook (titled “The Dubbers Cooking Show”). We have found recipes for breads using a mixer…..but we have found that we have to set aside a day, just to yield our favorite breads (tomato basil, sticky buns, and banana nut to name a few). It’s cumbersome and i would love to offer a solution full with love.

    She is the love of my life….and somehow, because i am willing to learn and grow and make her feel more comfortable in her Celiac skin (so to speak), cooking has always drawn us closer.

    I hope i win, but if i don’t, blessings to celiac chicks for providing a great outlet and information portal for Celiacs and the people who love them to learn, grow and expand.

    I have been Gf for a while, and when I first started baking Gf the breadmaker I had was terrible. Since then I’ve found the best bread is an Almond Honey Sourdough recipie from Bette Hagmann. We have five eating Gf in our family so a reliable breadmaker would be great.

    I live in CT but visited family in CA this weekend. While I was there, a neighbor of my parents, who lives in a retirement community, learned that I was gluten-free. His wife is also gluten free and he bakes her bread in his bread machine every week. When he heard that I was visiting, he baked a loaf for me and gave it to me via my parents. Wasn’t that the sweetest thing? I’ve never even met this man, but was able to enjoy a week of delicious sandwiches because of his kindness!

    I love the UDIs bread that can be purchased for sandwiches etc, however there something about making your own bread which I haven’t been able to do with a bread machine for about 8yrs. The sliced can be made at different sizes and the bread can be used for such a variety of uses,,,,,bread crumbs/french toast/breakfast casseroles, etc Amazing! I woudl love to win the bread maker and start having fun with a variety of bread flavors!
    Thanks for running this contest!
    Looking forward to winnning!

    I LOVE bread. Any type of bread. And so does my mom, however, she has now developed ciliac’s 🙁 We are Jamaican and there are lots of cultural breads that she can no logner eat. She has now discovered gluteen free all purpose flour for cakes and stuff but she misses bagels, rolls, and just a plain ham and cheese sandwich. Like you hates tapioca startch. I like to make stuff and she knows it so I am like her little baking angel lol. I can only imagine the fun I’ll have with a bread maker.

    Viola says:

    I used to LOVE to make bread growing up and now my father is all about making friendship bread but I can no longer eat it with this recent gluten-allergy discovery and gluten-free bread in the store is so pricey, tiny, crumbly and not too tasty. HELP!

    Em says:

    I’ve recently discovered that I am gluten intolerant, and being allergic to dairy I am desperately searching for great recipes, but mostly bread.

    My pre-Celiac days were incredibly bread-filled. I went to town on the free bread at restaurants and STILL ordered a sandwich. These days I still love bread – keeps it real with their Millet and flax dinner rolls, hamburgery buns, bagels, pizza crust, whatever.

    But I would FREAK OUT if I won this bread machine. A gluten-free setting? Dream come true.

    My favorite bread memory is of my Mennonite mother making homemade bread and cinnamons rolls every week. I have a vivid memory of how she put all of her energy and concentration into kneading the dough. I’m sure she took out all of her frustrations on that bread dough, since she didn’t express them verbally! The wonderful thing is, her homemade bread and cinnamon rolls are the best I have EVER tasted. I would help her with the cinnamon rolls by spreading the melted butter, brown sugar and cinnamon on the rolled out dough. Mmmm, just thinking about it makes my mouth water…

    Anne Steib says:

    i was actually just researching bread machines and heard great comments about this one. How exciting! I want a bread machine so I can start making gluten-free bread with more fiber and whole grain such as oats, millet, quinoa and buckwheat and not rely on the store-bought gf breads which are full of refined carbs.

    fingers crossed for this one!!

    thx, anne

    My husband’s mother baked all their breads, pies, cakes, cookies, etc. She won many first prizes at the county fair. After we were married, she taught me to bake–an activity I’ve enjoyed for many years. Recently my husband was diagnosed with gluten and dairy intolerance; this led to my learning to bake with gluten-free flour and nondairy products. I am still in the process of learning to bake bread with good flavor and texture that holds together. I’ve read of using a bread machine for gluten-free bread, have been impressed with the pictures that show texture and the accompanying comments, but have not saved enough to buy one of the bread machines recommended for gluten-free baking. My husband would certainly enjoy again having bread for sandwiches if we had a bread machine and the recipes produce tasty, nice textured bread.

    Growing up, my family used to call me the “bread queen” because I couldn’t get enough of bagels, rolls and pizza. I would love to be able to make my own bread again, but gluten free now! 🙂

    Orby says:

    After many years of problems I was told to quit eating a number of foods including those with gluten and dairy. I’d like to have bread that has a pleasing flavor and texture. I’ve not found any commercially prepared breads that I like. From what I’ve learned, bread made with a bread machine can have flavor and a texture that would not crumble easily when I pick it up. And we would not have problems with proofing the yeast dough. I’m losing the sense of feel in my hands and many of the bread recipes we’ve tried are crumbly which makes eating bread frustrating. I enjoy both yeast and fruit/nut breads (quick breads) and would enjoy learning to make them in a bread machine.

    Amy Stanfield says:

    Once upon a time there was a girl who loved bread. And I don’t just mean *loved* bread, I mean, was a little obsessed with it. (Ok, a lot obsessed with it.) She’d lovingly stare at her piece of bread at Panera that went so well with her soup. She’d wink and make smooching noises to the piece of cinnamon toast in her oven late at night. She’d dream of maple syrup oozing from her french toast for breakfast on special mornings.
    Then she found out she was allergic to gluten. She cried at first, and shouted out “Noooooo!” Then she changed her life and the way she ate and felt like a different person.
    Then she won a Zojirushi Home Bakery Supreme Breadmaker… and it changed her life forever… because she could have bread again and enjoy it… savor it! (because she doesn’t like rice breads or others that taste like cardboard…she loves the chewy, warm texture of homemade bread.)

    The end.

    Angie T says:

    I’m newly diagnosed with celiac and have to say that I love gluten free bread so much more than wheat filled bread. Seriously. I know it sounds completely odd, but the heavier texture and taste make me crave my bakery’s gluten free bread far more than I ever wanted to eat normal bread before. I would love to replicate it at home!

      HB Glam says:

      where do you live? Where do you buy your bread? Im mortified over my diagnosis! I grew up Italian, now what? Pasta? What are you eating? I appreciate any help you are willing to offer. I live in So Cal. Huntington beach. Im hoping to find the right recipes. I Love bread, and I dont love rice anything??
      Thank you for posting

    I am new to all of this, as I’ve just come to the conclusion that I am wheat intolerant. I had been off wheat 4 days and at some food with wheat and was so uncomfortable and ill for about 12 hrs. I am going to finish out 3 wks of non-wheat meals, then re-introduce wheat to see if my suspicion is founded.
    I am looking into to making my own bread now, and winning this bread-maker would be a God-send!!
    Your email updates, I have signed up for, and look forward to learning more about wheat/gluten free foods.
    Thank you.

    Being relatively new to the GF community, I have to admit that I am now SCARED of bread. I would love to make it but I’m scared of xantham gum, teff flour (what the heck is that?), spending a bunch of money on different things to make the bread and then hating the end result, finding something that I truly love and gaining back the weight that I have lost, so many things related to the one thing I used to eat copious amounts of and can no longer. But, despite being scared of it, and learning how to make it, I miss it so much. Since going GF 4 months ago, I have eaten maybe 12 slices of bread, 6 GF muffins, 1 hamburger bun and 2 GF buns and a bagel. I used to do that in a week easy!

    Thanks for posting this contest!! 🙂
    So, I grew up with my mom baking all types of breads from scratch and of course, everyone loved it!! Strange to think that I never continued the baking legacy… until I found out I had celiac!! I had never baked a loaf of wheat bread or made a regular pie crust! I think I made banana bread a couple of times. LOL Well, things have definitely changed since those days. I have now found a new love for baking and even tried to open a GF bakery. It didn’t work out but I still enjoy baking for other people and our family. My husband loves that I bake now – and it’s gluten and dairy free! I would love to experiment with my new bread recipes with a new Zojirushi! 🙂

    I have a daughter with celiac, four kids with dairy allergies, a husband that is allergic to soy, many different nuts, vegs, and fruit (all his is about 15 allergies and still counting due to birch allergies. Not good since we live in a birch state). Then I am allergic to sodium nitrite and other preservatives (still trying to find out which ones. My Dr says there is no real testing for this, just eat and see). We only have one child that can still eat anything.

    It has been crazy for the past 4-5 years since all of our food problems showed up at the same time. My husband and I were in the hospital only a month apart from each other because of our first food allergy reaction (he came very close to dying). It was weird that either one of us had food allergies until the age of 28 and 30 and it happened so close together, but this did help our Dr’s to stop thinking that our other kids had celiac too. Our daughter with celiac was a little happy knowing she wasn’t going to be alone in the food thing. At that time it was just a little over a year since she found out she had celiac and only being 8 it was hard to deal with. Also we were kind of happy we no later had to hear her say “you don’t understand”. lol

    My life went from easy fast cooked meals and eating out to thinking about what we can we all eat safely and if I have what I need to make it. Our kids love to eat bread and having enough bread for a family of eight is crazy. We never have enough homemade bread. We live where there is only one kind of store bought gluten free bread. Dairy free bread and products isn’t easy to get either. We have been using Bob’s Mill since it doesn’t have dairy or soy. The only other kind of bread mix that is sold up here is Pamela’s but the mix is produced on equipment that also makes products containing soy, dairy, and nuts. So we can’t use it. The stores here don’t even carry all of the good flours to make a good tasting gluten free bread. The closest place to get many different gluten free and/or dairy free bread, flour, or products is about 400 miles away. We only go down there for Dr appointments about once or twice a year and we end up spending a lot of money at the health food store (not good spending that much but needed). That place is like heaven to me and my family. Our family just went down last month for an appointment and Dr. bills are coming in just in time for Christmas. Anyways, if we get this bread machine it will help our family of eight out a lot. It really would be a blessing to have. I don’t think anywhere up here in Alaska sells these bread machines. It looks like a great machine. I love that it can do much more then make bread. Like helping me mix dough, meatloaf and jam (we go berry picking a lot so that would be great and canning is big in Alaska). This machine can really make things a lot easier for me. It will give me some free time from the kitchen after homeschooling our six kids all morning and evening. I love that thought! Thanks for listen and good luck to everyone.

    I hope I’m not late for this contest. It says midnight but I’m not sure what time zone. It’s only 9:50pm in the Alaskan time zone.

    Im newly diagnosed and mortified. Grew up Italian.. What will I do? Bread and pasta have been my life. I must learn to make my own??? Im still in shock and mourning, is this normal?

      Cathy Stevenson says:

      Hi Glam! Welcome to the club. I’m rather new myself. Of course shock and mourning are normal!!! It doesn’t matter that you are Italian, bread is considered the food of life. Since you’re looking for opinions, I’ll offer mine. First of all, take a deep breath and say out loud “this is NOT cancer, it’s a lifestyle change!” Secondly, for explaining to the world simplify the diagnosis: this isn’t an allergy; it’s an inherited autoimmune disorder and I will destroy my body by ‘cheating’ so please don’t think I have a choice. It’s my Italian blood which got me here. Once your mind is wrapped around those ideas, the rest is easy!
      Decide to embrace the challenge. See how close to mom you can make your dishes. Often it only means using this instead of that brand. Most grocery stores have a gluten free section with a variety of noodles and breads. Most Italian restaurants have a gluten free menu. There is a book from Cecilia’s Marketplace which is a grocery shopping guide with thousands of name brand items listed. I’ve recently bought a bread machine and had great success with mixes and different flours. Good luck, and keep enjoying food and life!

        HB Glam says:

        Dear Cathy, I will take your advice and run with it.. I keep uttering those words to myself, and I have alerted my sisters with their health issues that this is a common disorder in siblings. Even though they are 3 thousand miles away, maybe this is their answer too.
        You kind words of wisdom are comforting and I thank you… “Thank you”
        I will share anything I can with this group, and I will check out the web site you mentioned for groceries.

    I am not sure if anyone has any suggestions but I received a food network programmable breadmaker for christmas and wanted to known everyone’s opinion on using a regular breadmaker to make gluten free bread. I am not an outstanding cook and have little time to experiment with the settings so I wanted to know if it would work. Thanks for any comments in advance!

      Cathy Stevenson says:

      If that were me I’d try: as a resource to find or ask questions. They make all purpose flour that can be substituted in other recipes. I’ve only baked in the oven or used a gluten free setting on the bread maker, so I can’t answer your question. Good Luck!

    I live in Upper Michigan, and we don’t have Trader Joe’s or other fancy grocery stores where I could buy many gluten free foods. I’d love to win this beautiful bread machine.

    GF Family says:

    I love the ease of using a bread machine for our gluten free bread, but lately, my bread machine is doing a very poor job of mixing the dough evenly and I end up with dry layers of flour baked into the bread. Yuck! I would be very happy to have the latest and greatest bread making appliance for our gluten free life. Choose me!

    Amy Garner says:

    I am newly diagnosised. I use to LOVE bread. All kinds of bread. I ate it for almost every mean. I have had a hard time finding GF bread that I enjoy as much. Poeople have told me to buy a bread maker. I was overwhelmed with all of the types and brands out there. It is nice to see one that is highly recommended. Thanks!

    mary janssen says:

    I still haven’t had a good loaf of homemade gluten free bread. I’m thinking that this bread machine is the answer.

  34. 34

    I actually voted the Zojirushi as the best gluten free breadmaker on my website. The funny thing is that it doesn’t actually have a gluten free setting as such. However it’s fully programmable cycles are perfect for gluten free bread as the dough isn’t over-kneeded.

    Hi There, just found your website, got my long overdue diagnosis in Jan 2011 after 18 years of sickness……there is a bakery in Kaui, HI that is awesome!!! A gem I found in March after eating blocks of fish and rice all week…….ugh!!
