You're a woman... you just don't understand the idea of tools that are just neat to have.
I have half a basement full of tools that are supposedly neat to have, you're right I'll never understand the logic behind it. Same kind of logic that thinks taking a motor bike to bits and then rebuilding it in the dining room is a good idea I guess.

Re: What flour in breadmakingmachine ?

You mean the other half doesn't have -er useful tools in it. (My autocorrect wanted to write 'toys'). Ah shades of my Dad. He's the only person I ever knew who bought a flame-thrower to weed a small garden... It was my younger brother who sorted the motor bikes and the car parts on the lounge carpet. All long
since gone. Cars, motorbikes, carpet, father and brother.

Sorry, this was about bread-making. I make mine 'by hand'. Kneading it gets rid of all EF frustration. Wonderful discovery/invention, bread.

Makes perfect sense. The dishwasher is a lot closer to the living room when you need to clean parts.

You can do that, but the machine does a better job than the oven.

Ohhh, it must be that then. But do you guys take the size of your kitchen/cupboards into consideration? Like...ever? I told my husband if he buys any more "tools that are just neat to have" I'm going to throw them away. Obviously, I can't understand the idea.
Seriously, what's the point in having so many things you use 2-3 times a year and probably would manage quite well without them?

Some tools, I only use ever 2-3 years.

And no, things can't be managed without them.

I even make tools sometimes.

When we moved to our current apartment I was glad that the basement was large and had lots of shelves where I could place our stuff neatly...it's full now, not neat...and with a workbench right in the middle. And I thought there would be a free corner for practicing guitar so I won't disturb my neighbours...

Can Tom and I come and gawk? There is always a chance that one may have missed a whole range of tools.

Trust me I would throw away half of them..and I have the feeling they won't be missed for at least couple of years. But hey, we have to buy stuff that we won't really need it..

I did. You still have to take the dough out and shape it before putting it back in to cook using the baguette pans. May as well just cook it in the oven if you're going to do that in my opinion.
Oh my God! What a revolutionary idea!

My breadmaker is a Kenwood Chef and an oven. Makes all shapes I want. Sometimes I even use a loaf tin. Using whatever flour I wish to use.

Re: What flour in breadmakingmachine ?

The good news for anyone else seeking breadmaking flour is that it is now available from Britshop; the bad news is that it costs from CHF 6.50 per 1.5kg bag and postage is CHF 8.90. Still, thought I'd mention it...

You can't make bread from flour sold in Swiss supermarkets?

Of course you can, I've been doing it for years.

I'm sure all the Swiss hausfraus don't buy their bread flour from britshop but still make perfectly good bread.

Re: What flour in breadmakingmachine ?

Sorry, to clarify: I meant for breadmaking machine, as per OP's question. The machine manuals specify flour for breadmaking, but will normal Weissmehl found in supermarkets suffice? I am loathe to pay CHF 6.50 for the Britshop stuff

I use the same flour for hand made or machine made bread and I've not noticed any difference.

Yes.

You can also buy Weizenmehl, Zopfmehl and a whole host of other kinds of flour in coop, migros, landi et al.

I normally start with a mix and add stuff into it. For dark breads, for example I will sometimes use Guinness instead of water. If you experiment with beer make sure that you open the beer and let it go completely flat before you put into your (clean) breadmaking machine.

Is there some specific blend your recipe requires?
