A few questions about home bread making machines

john333 | Oct 19, 201104:57 PM     2

A few questions about those bread-making machines you could (still can?) buy for home use:

1. Does anyone still use them? I know they were a fad some time ago but I never hear about them anymore. I don't know ANYONE who bothers. Did people finally wake up to the fact that bread is just a commodity and you may as well just buy it at the grocery store?

2. I remember this old rumor, that in Canada all-purpose flour worked in bread making machines but in the US all-purpose flour didn't work. In the US you needed to buy sprecial bread making flour to get your bread making machine to work. Presumably because US all purpose flour is crappy compared with Canadian and doesn't have enough gluten in it (or something). Is that true?

Thanks everyone in advance for responding!
