Cheapest bread maker ideal for roasting.
Just wondering if anyone has bought a fairly new model bread maker that is suitable for home roasting (continuous stirring for at least 30mins without modifications).
My trusty Sunbeam country bakehouse has died after 10 years of use. It had a handy butter feature that allowed me to run the paddle for 30mins straight.
I've read the manuals of alot of the current breadmachines available and none seem to have the same butter feature.
I'm not familiar with the other functions of a modern break maker, so not sure if dough, pasta, pizza options would be sufficient for roasting.
I've checked Gumtree but don't mind buying something cheap and brand new ($100-150) that will get the job done. I've also checked the thread with bread machine reviews but it's quite old now and doesn't cover any of the newer models available. I'm also not comfortable with modding the machine, I'll prob end up electrocuting myself.
Any help would be appreciated.
I have bought two Breville BBM100s new over the years to use as roasters, around $100. Can't kill them (the plastic breaks down before the internals die!) and they are a really simple modder for constant stirring (think two spade terminals ). I think they have a 20min stir time for dough though if you don't want to mod…
