Default Best Bread Maker for a 2lb loaf - must be available in 220V!

Hi there. I love my sandwiches! I have been reading up on all sorts of recipes for loaves with bread a low as 1g of carbs per slice. I want to try making some but I donít want to spend time kneading dough etc!!

I want 220V, as donít want to get a 110V bread maker and use a bulky step down transformer as space is an issue. And Iíd like to be able to make 2lb loaves.

Zojirushi machines are highly rated in the reviews, but the 2lb size only seems to be available in a 110 V model.

Any tips from the experienced? Googling the reviews just seems to find me 110V only machines.

Can't help with recommending a bread maker, but not sure why you would need to knead the bread if you're making a low carb loaf. The only reason for kneading the dough in the first place is to develop the gluten, which would be absent in a low carb bread.

Hi Pete. I had a breadmaker ages ago, mainly for my non-LC ex. All of the LC recipes I tried were "just okay", if not outright disappointing. At the time, I was not gluten-intolerant (or didn't think I was) and recipes called for CarbQuick and/or extra gluten flour.

I got rid of it and wouldn't want another one. The bread replacements I prefer now, like Demi said, don't require kneading. I love my sandwiches, too, and make either these coconut flour biscuits or these chaffles almost every Sunday to bring to work during the week.

I'm sorry to leave a response that doesn't answer your question; I just wanted to mention my experience. Maybe someone with better bread baking experience can chime in...
