I have also become a decent bread baker  -- but don't know enough about 
bread machines because I have avoided using/owning one.  I noticed my folks 
have one, but it is not used as often as I would expect  {dad probably 
bought it coz it's a "gadget" and was on sale}  My In-laws have one, but I 
saw how they mix the dough, but then take the dough out for a final rising & 
bake it in the oven.  I think the "fun is in the doing"  -- I use my 
kitchenaide bread hook too for the first round of mixing, but then knead by 
hand.  A kitchenAide is much more versatile a machine than one that only 
bakes bread.
