My husband got an inexpensive bread machine (Sunbeam 5891-33) and we're underwhelmed by its seeming limitations. We haven't tried it yet, but the recipes seem to require gluten if you don't want to use white flour. I'm wondering if a basic bread machine is going to allow much flexibility, or is it going to be strict following a recipe all the way? This link
implies maybe there's a fair bit of flexibility. Is a bread machine worth it? Bread has become expensive, and we do like bread, so I encouraged his desire to try this. Maybe a fancier model is what we need?
