Sounds like you are a healthy minded person who usually would stick to the multigrain
or wholemeal options i guess.
Glad you have finally come around to thinking that white can be right just like so many other
millions of happy toast chompers out there. Now to get serious! Don't worry too much about the bread
maker itself, if it is made by a reputable manufacturer of bread makers and comes
at a reasonable price then go for it- but remember that just like a puter you will get what
you pay for, cept your breadmaker probably won't have a 500GB hard drive. I did 1 year of
a baking apprenticeship (which I hated) about 20 years ago now, and what i found was
that it is all in the recipe. For example, the bread will taste dramatically different depending
on how much sugar, or fat, or preservative is added to the mix. So look for a good recipe!
Maybe if you kept the maintenance mans number you could give him a tingle on the ringle dingle
and see exactly what equipment he is packing to produce this deliciously tatsy loaf, and I'd suggest
if you do call then why not ask for the recipe he packs into that equipment while your at it!
