Bread Maker

My wife wants to add a bread maker to our RV equipment. But our concern is around the noise level. Can anyone out there give me advice on make and model that works well at a low noise level?
Thx, bob

We had our Zojirushi Bread Machine that we carried with us for the longest time before we gave it away to our son and his girlfriend. For us, it wasn't the noise as much as it was the availability of the various flours that we wanted, storage space for the flour and the fact that bread recipes have to be changed to account for changes in altitude or elevation.

If you like really good bread it's going to be a challenge to find it. It's out here, but you have to constantly be on the lookout for it.

btw, I'm looking at it from a Full-time RVer's perspective.

Bread Maker

Get the book, kneadlessly simple by Nancy Bagget.. Making bread without a machine takes about 24 hrs of wait time. Need an oven in your coach but the bread is much better than a machine. You mix your ingredients, let the bread self knead for about 10 hours. Stir once before bed time, kneads itself over nite. Bake in the am... Unmmmm good.

We use a Breadman Ultimate. The issue is space, not noise. I find it to be pretty quiet, actually, but it takes up space, whether in use on the counter or table, or stored below. So far it keeps passing the "keeper" test.

Of course, the real problem is that whenever we make yummy fresh bread, we eat it all!

Thank you, the responses are a great help. We are not full timers yet but plan to within a year. On our shorty trips, so far, we have found it frustrating as we are picky around the bread we eat and it is hard to find good bread without going on the "hunt". We thought a bread maker is the way to go. We do have an oven in our rig so perhaps the handmade version is the way to go. I think we will buy an inexpensive one and put it to the "keeper" test.
Thanks again.

I have two, one is a Wel-Built 1 pound model with a round (Cylinderical) bread pan, the other a Salaman BB-1 with a retangular bread pan.

neither is all that noisy... I like the Wel-Built better just now for reasons that have to do with the east of removing the finished product from the pan. however it is an older model... Was eating a slice of its product when I started reading this thread in fact.. just finished making a loaf.
Home is where I park it!

Don't buy a cheap one. You won't like it.

Try a mini Zojirushi Bread Machine. We used it in the MH and Stick and Brick. It makes just the right size for two. we only sopped using it because of the weight we gained.

It is small and quiet, except you can't sleep when it goes through its cycles. They are not very loud, but the starting and stopping will kep you awake.

I have had others and the results were never consistent or very good.

Good Luck!
