Not sure where if anywhere this belongs but wondered if anyone had a bread maker?

I love to make different types of bread - I like the process of the kneading, rising twice and baking - the old fashioned way. But my fibromyalgia doesnt like me doing it much now and we need more bread than i can make - does anyone have a good breadmaker they can recommend?

my girl friend gave me her Oster last year, since she rarely used it, and i have carpal tunnel and can't knead bread anymore.  i use it AT LEAST once a week.  i really love that thing.  i've never used a boxed mix with it, all my breads are from scratch- and theyre always fab.  i really, really like it. 
heres the link to the manual
http://www.oster.com/manuals/oster/005838-000-000_English.pdf

ive made bagels, pizza dough, cinnamon roll, all manner of wheat and flax bread, everything except the jam.  but im going to try it one of these days.  so, yes, i do indeed recommend the oster bread machine.  as long as you put the ingredients in order, mine is really reliable. (i read a recipe on allrecipes that was all 'screw the order, just dump it all in at once.  trust me.'  wrong!)

Thanks guys - Im in the UK so I looked at the ones which magazine recommends and there are three they think are good - I just dont know which one to go for. Theres a big price difference!!!! A Panasonic SD-252 and a SD- 253 and a Russell Hobbs Breadman Junior 10882. they are all supposed to be good but i dont know whether to shell out the extra on the more expensive ones or not!

I own a Breadman bread machine which is actually being put to use right now. I like this machine for its compact size.  It's quite functional too.  Besides bread I also use it to make dough for rolls, pizza, cinnaman buns, etc...

I really like my breadman too and the recipes in their little booklet have worked out well!  I made some pizza dough and that zuccini-herb-wheat bread in the booklet and it came out fantastic.  it's really easy to clean, too.  i highly recommend that model.  i got lucky since my ex's parents gave it to me because they never used it.

My Black and Decker bread maker is nearly 10 years old and workes wonderfully! It gets used several times a month, usually to make pizza dough, but I baked bread in it often too. Its a nice sturdy machine.

What ever machine you do pick, make sure it has many different settings as possible so you can make your own bread recipes.

I have fibromyalgia as well...........my sister-in-law gave me her bread machine because she didn't like using it..........(she's got 5 kids,  so most of her recipes are all quick meals...... Roll Eyes )........Mine's a Kenmore.........she didn't have the manual anymore.........but it's digital.........so it pretty much is self explanatory.........and I've found that most online recipes have the setting included.  Did I mention that I used to be a bread disaster waiting to happen?..... Grin

I've learned a lot of kitchen shortcuts over the years because of my fibro..........but this has been so far the BEST investment I've made!........And it didn't take long for me to move from allowing the machine to bake the bread to just making the dough and baking it myself................Now.........if I could jus' find a buttermilk biscuit recipe I could mix in there......... Wink

Thanks for the advice everyone - we have ordered one and am waiting for it to arrive now
Lissaw70 - thats what i want to do most of the time - just let it knead the dough and do the rest myself. I shall have to wait and see  tho!!
