A major dissappointment! If you're looking for a collection of recipes, where your bread machine does all the work, DON'T buy this book! Despite it's name, this book is not a collection of true bread machine recipes. The majority of recipes only make use of the machine's dough kneading ability...you must then remove the dough, reform and place it in a different pan for baking in a traditional oven. For myself at least, that totally defeats the idea of having a bread machine in the first place.
In three sections, "Flatbreads & Pizzas", "Sourdough Breads" and "Teabreads & Cakes" every recipe requires baking in a regular oven. In the "Sweetbreads" section, 15 of the 22 recipes require dough removal or some form of user intervention. In the "Savoury" section, 10 of the 17 recipes also require this. Even in the "Basic" section, 2 of the 16 recipes require traditional baking, including the French bread, which is surprising, as most machines have a cycle dedicated to this purpose.
Furthermore, if you're into healthy breads using 100% whole wheat and other grains, look elsewhere. You won't find even a basic recipe for 100% whole wheat bread in this book. Virtually all the recipes make extensive use of white flour. Only small amounts of whole grain flours are occasionally used for flavouring.
The book does contain much useful information for baking with a bread machine, but no more so than other bread machine books. If you're looking for a big selection of recipes allowing one to put in the ingredients and come back several hours later for a finished loaf, look elsewhere...there are much better books dedicated to true, 100% bread machine baking.
