I have never been that into store-bought bread. Once you have freshly-made bread, it is hard to go back. That being said, I really have to plan my day out if I want to make bread. It is a time-consuming process and sometimes my results are less than stellar. Well, until I got the West Bend Hi-Rise™ Bread Maker. Now, I am making my own bread all of the time! I even made the bread for our traditional Italian Christmas (you know it must be good when your family trusts you to make their Italian bread).
The West Bend Hi-Rise™ Bread Maker is so easy to use. It comes with everything I need. Most days, I simply pop in the ingredients and am on my way. This little baby does the rest.
Dual knead blades provide thorough dough kneading for a lighter taste and higher rise!

Our current favorite is a chocolate bread (from a Tesss Kiros cookbook). We love this bread, but not the time it usually takes to make this. Now I just add the ingredients to the West Bend Hi-Rise™ Bread Maker and sweet, chocolate goodness is mine with minimal work. Best of all, it makes my house smell like a bakery! I get all the accolades for the hard work that the West Bend Hi-Rise™ Bread Maker has been doing. It is so nice to know what goes into the foods you eat, and even better when making them is so simple.
