Editorial Reviews

Barbara Jacobs
Exit the "Juiceman"; enter the "Breadman," yet another spokesperson for a piece of not-necessarily-needed kitchen equipment. But since the former sparked a countertop revolution and interest in freshly made juices, it's only a matter of time until automatic bread bakers become the latest fashion. To his credit, former baker Burnett does understand diet and the benefits of high-fiber eating; he also includes a chart to transcribe his more than 100 recipes for the workings of other machines. Many of his edibles will be familiar: bagels, English muffins, and tea breads.
