Best Bread Machine for Gluten Free Bread

There are numerous options when it comes to store bought gluten free bread, but none of them compare to a warm loaf of gluten free bread that you bake fresh in your own home. 

If you are thinking of purchasing a new bread machine to cook gluten free bread then purchase one with a gluten free cycle or one that has a programmable cycle.

Gluten containing dough (wheat dough) rises, needs to be punched down and then rises again.  Most settings on traditional bread machines will take you through this process two or three times. 

You do not need all of these cycles for gluten free bread; the second rise can result in a deflated loaf of gluten free bread.  With programmable cycles you have the flexibility of selecting just one knead and one rise cycle which is all you need for gluten free bread.  Alternatively, you can buy a bread machine with a gluten free setting that automatically eliminates all of the extra cycles.

 

  • Our favorite bread machine is the Zojirushi BB-CEC20 Home Bakery Supreme 2-Pound-Loaf Breadmaker,

    You can use the Basic Course when baking gluten-free breads .  The Zojirushi also has a programmable cycle to set for gluten free bread so you can set the exact knead time, rise times, crust color, and baking time you desire.  For gluten free bread, set the machine for Preheat 15 minutes, Knead 25 minutes, turn OFF Rise 1 and Rise 2, Rise 3 for 55 minutes, and Bake for 55 minutes.  It also has dual paddles for mixing.

    It also has settings for three crusts shades – light, medium and dark. You can also use it cook everything from meatloaf to homemade jam. 

    We are not the only ones that love this bread machine.  BreadInfo.com tested the Zojirushi BB-CEC20 by preparing several types of bread in it. They say it does a good job making white bread and bread dough, but they're particularly impressed with its ability to produce "remarkably high-quality" gluten-free bread. 

    The Zojirushi is the cream of the crop, but you can make good bread with a less expensive bread maker

  • Oster CKSTBR9050 Expressbake Bread Maker, White which features a gluten free setting. 

 

It does not have some of the bells and whistles of the Zojirushi such as the extra features, dual blades and large window, but it will get the job done with a built in gluten free cycle and two-pound loaf capacity.

  

You cannot program the cycles but it comes with a gluten free setting that should work for most home bakers. It is a single paddle system but also has a pause feature for scrapping down the sides, and a keep warm setting. 

Once you have a bread machine, you are going to need a good recipe.  There are two cookbooks with reliable recipes:

In addition, we have our own recipe for Gluten Free Brown Bread for a Bread Machine.  All bread machines work a little different so you may have to experiment with this one a few times but we cook it regularly in our bread machine and it works great.

 I also love the Progressive International Adjustable Bread Keeper.

It has vents on the side to regulate air flow, can adjust to the size of your loaf and it has a built-in cutting board.  Your bread will hold for a few days on the counter.  For longer storage, slice and then put into Ziploc bags in the freezer.

Thanks for this recommendation. I ordered the Zojirushi and it works great. I am enjoying making my own bread.

Regarding the brown bread for bread machine recipe-- is the corn starch necessary or could it be substituted? I'm allergic to corn.
Posted by Jamie on
I have not tried it with other starches, but potato should work. Let us know how it turns out and I will work on a recipe that does not include corn starch.
Posted by Erin on
could you use arrowroot instead of the corn starch?
Posted by Jamie on
Sorry - I have never tried arrowroot.

I make Bread every year at Christmas in my Bread Machine and give to family and frnieds. You can buy the Sour Dough bread Mix at Wal-Mart for about $1.47 a Box and it makes a big Loaf. Just can't beat it straight from the machine hot and with a Little Butter, YUM YUM
