The dough cycle is your friend.  Even expensive bread machines do a halfassed job of baking, but if you just use the dough cycle and then dump the dough out onto a floured work surface (like a large cutting board), shape it into loaves or rolls or whatever, transfer to a parchment paper lined baking sheet, cover with a damp towel and let rise for about 30 minutes, then remove the towel and pop into a 375F preheated oven... you'll have properly baked rolls or loaves or whatever.

Its just such a shame to get so close to perfection and then let the bread machine bake cycle ruin it all.

The price is to high. I have the air fryer and pressure cooker combo from ninja that's $30 cheaper and bigger than that. PowerXL have bigger ones that also have a rotisserie.

Is the Ninja one any good? I was on a smoothie kick a while back and picked up one of their "tower blade" blenders that could supposedly liquefy whole fruit; turns out the damn thing can't even manage leavy greens.

I have a Ninja blender that has so far blended all the stuff I put in it.  It has a big blender... UH... carafe?  and a couple of smoothie-sized cups.  It works well.

Heres how you make kaiser rolls

Step 1) go to the grocery store
Step 2) go to the bakery department
Step 3) ask for frozen kaiser dough
Step 4) bake at home

So far so good. The size is the only con. In order to you need plenty of vertical space.

If all your using it for is mixing dough, you'd be better off with a stand mixer.

yeah, what exactly do you call those things?  VitaMix calls them a "blade container" and I thought they meant a storage box for the blades.  Very confusing and I think i now prefer "Blade Carafe" just because it sounds violent and dangerous.

America's Test Kitchen/Cooks Illustrated disagrees.

/breadmachine is our preferred method of making pizza dough

Huh.  I just looked at a bunch of GIS diagrams and it's called a pitcher, jar, or jug.  Blade carafe sounds better to me.

I never make BREAD bread.  Occasional naan.  Tomorrow is banana bread day because my roommate has expired bananas.  But an actual loaf never happens around here.

Even though I sometimes enjoy keeping a sourdough starter.  I like the microbes more than the bread.

I like ours as well, but it has these suction cups on the bottom that would be the envy of even the baddest Japanese tentacle pr0n actor... you literally have to rip it off of our granite to move it. Other than that is has handled anything I wanted to blend.  It is sort of a unitasker compared to my big Cuisinart , but we got it for free through work bonus points and sometimes its just the right tool for the job.

Yeah and your oven can pretty much handle all the other stuff so why get a 5 in 1?

Why make your own when you could be a consumer, right?

In my case it would be because something like that would be far more energy efficient, and faster.  I rent and the electric stove takes 40 min to hit 400 deg.  One of the burners is fine but the rest are equally a slow.  So I bought a portable induction cook top to deal with crappy burners.

You can, but in the summer months you really don't want your oven or stove top on in a apartment.

Is that good? I'm always wary of the longevity of non stick coatings, but my neighbor's oven broke, so it's either something like that, have theirs repaired, or pretend we needed a new one and give them ours.

I also have a stand mixer, but the dough cycle automates everything but the final rise which means I can go out for the afternoon instead of having to punch down and knead the dough every hour.
