    I usually make my bread in the break maker (I have very little counter space) ... but I use my own recipe. Thing is, Hubby's 50th b-day party is coming up and I want to provide several loaves of my homemade bread. Wondering: If I start the dough in the bread machine, then turn it out, can I rise it and finish/bake it in the nu wave oven? If so, for how long.

    That way, I can start a second loaf in the bread machine, and they should both be done close to the same time. Right?

    I don't like the oven in my new house. One day I'll figure it out. Meanwhile most of my cooking is crockpot (pretty much daily), the GT express 101, and the nu wave oven.

    Thanks!

    BTW: I love my garlic and parsley bread, and then there's the cocoa/cinnamon/walnut bread! Yum! So much for my diet!

    OK, I guess I'm way out of the loop...I've never heard of a nu wave oven so I don't know about that but I make my dough in my bread machine and bake it in my oven all the time. In the 15+ years that I've owned my bread machine I've never baked a loaf of bread in it.

    Thanks for your response. Here's a pic I found online: [​IMG]

    Hubby had it before we got married 4 years ago and I have actually gotten used to it. But the instruction booklet is long gone. It supposedly has shorter cooking times than a regular oven so if a reg oven takes 45 minutes to bake a loaf of bread, maybe it will take only 30 minutes in a bread pan in this nuwave oven.

    This has nothing to do with baking bread in it, but a friend has a NuWave and she absolutely LOVES it

    Quote:I suppose you could try and see what happens. I'm sure other people who have one would like to know if it could be used to bake bread.

    Today's experiment:

    Did a loaf of bread, dough-cycle only, in my bread machine, let it rise, knead, then stopped it, put it in a glass bread loaf pan and put in the nuwave oven on 10% power for 20 minutes to rise. Didn't. Did another 20 minutes on 10% to rise. Barely rose. Said to heck with it, and baked for 30 minutes on high power. Was doughy on the bottom, very hard crust, and dense as a brick.

    Split it among the chicken pens. At least THEY were happy!

    Gonna have to experiment some more.

    Disappointed.

    Suggestions?

    Well you have a bread machine, right ?? Looking at the ads online this is an electric convection oven of sorts - with the infrared heat source at the top. If I was going to eschew the bread machine and try baking bread in this I would do only the baking part in the Nu Wave. I think you would have better results in the bread machine or a conventional oven.

    These Nu Waves would be great if you are camping in a motor home and want to do a full roasted chicken dinner with all the trimmings - like in the photo above. A buddy of mine had something similar and did a lot of roasted vegetables (he was a Seven Day Adventist, basically a vegetarian) - and he also dried sliced apples, apricots and figs he'd get from his yard (they planted fruit trees when they bought the property in early 60s - they had quite the Garden of Eden in that back yard).

    Well, yeah, my op said I want to do the kneading dough part in the bread machine, transfer the dough to a baking pan and bake in the nuwave oven so i can immediately start another loaf in the bread machine. Thanks tho.

    Oberhas: thanks. I'll try it.​

    You can make up your dough in the bread machine and put it in a greased zip lock bag and put it in the frig. Then after you have how many you want to bake made up-take them out of the bags and put them in your pans and let rise then bake. I do this often if I need several loaves of bread or batches of rolls for an occasion.
