Hamilton Beach Breadmachine Giveaway


Last summer, I worked with the nice folks over at Hamilton Beach to help them launch a new bread machine with a gluten free bread setting—The HomeBaker 2 lb Bread Machine. They came to us for help with gluten free bread recipes and advice about gluten free baking in general. We also tested our mixes with the machine to be sure they would work before we embarked on this project. In return for our help and partnership, they gave me 3 of these machines to share with you guys! How cool is that??

I know bread machines seem like a throwback from the 80’s and many folks still have one lying around in the garage collecting dust, but they have seen a resurgence in the last few years with people looking for ways to eat better and eat fresher.

Do you know how easy a bread machine is?? Seriously, you just put the ingredients in and press a button. Before you know it, you’ve got fresh bread and a house that smells like a bakery. It’s the Crockpot of bread baking! I had sort of brushed them off as a another appliance to take up space in my kitchen, until I got one of these new Hamilton Beach machines to play with. It sat in its box for an embarrassing amount of time and when I finally pulled it out, it was with resignation. Ok, I have to use this so I can tell our readers about it. Let me tell you, after one loaf, I was hooked. Now I use it to make all sorts of things- like pizza dough. Just throw my ingredients in and come back in 90 minutes to wonderfully springy and perfectly risen pizza dough ready to be baked.

That’s the cool thing about this machine- it has all sorts of great settings (did I mention gluten free??) and a handy delay-start so I could put the ingredients in on my way to work and come home to fresh bread! Another problem that it solved for me was the rising temperature. The hubs likes to keep our house just above freezing, which makes it difficult to get my dough to rise properly and this machine keeps the dough the perfect temperature for rising- so no matter how frigid my house, I can still get my dough to rise.

Ok, enough about how much I am enjoying this machine. Now for the good parts! How can you enjoy this machine?


Three winners will receive a brand new Hamilton Beach Bread Machine and their choice of either our Gluten Free Bread Mix Gift Set or our regular Bread Mix Gift Set. As an extra bonus- there’s even a coupon inside for more of our bread mixes!!

How to Enter

It’s simple, but because of the nature of this giveaway, I need to be strict. If you don’t follow the rules exactly, I will not count you.

To enter, simply leave us a comment here, on our blog on this post, and tell us which gift pack you would like to win. That’s it. Nothing fancy.

Most importantly: YOU HAVE TO ENTER HERE ON OUR BLOG- NOT ON FACEBOOK. I’ll remind people to head over to our blog, if they enter on Facebook, but I won’t be looking there to pick the winners.

Winners will be chosen using from all those who enter by 11:59 pm on Sunday, May 22nd, 2011. I will announce winners by May 31st. Unfortunately, we have to limit winners to residents of the United States (our apologies to our Canadian friends).

Good luck!

… Gluten Free Bread Mix Gift Set, please.

I have been doing extensive research on Gluten free food. I have been successful in creating many wonderful gluten free dishes. Making bread is quite a chore (as I’m new to baking), and at this point even daunting in trying to create a gluten free version. This bread machine alongwith the Gluten Free Mix could open up the joy of baking wonderful bread that I can now share with my family, friends, You Tube viewers (my channel), and also the readers on my blog. Teach a woman and she ends up teaching the whole town! Irrespective of whether I win this here (fingers crossed) or not, I will keep striving to reach my goals.

I have bought several whole grains from Bob’s. Had little success with Teff but finally figured out how to make the muffins. Still trying to learn how to make the crepes and also injira. Steel Cut Oats are a staple. I have made tortillas using Kamut and wheat and grinding it to a powder in the Vitamix. Tasted awesome and felt good for the soul. I will write about all my recipes and all the ingredients in detail on my blog and videos.

Thank you for this lovely opportunity!
Radha Rayasam.
