I have been messing around with breadmakers for about 3-4 yrs now, probably had 15-20 machines in the basement, I notice the Regal machines have a ton of power, I get thme at yard sales or Thrift shops, I think I saw a Regal yesterday at one of the shops, it looked now and was under $7, I pick them up, people don't use them anymore and they make great dough mixers. got the brother in law into bread making and got him a machine then I got him a back up machine ect. gave my daughter one, some of the weakest machines are the Magic Chef, but the Regal, Breadman Ultimate and some Osters have good power. you have to look around the Regal's are a nice machine.
ps I use the magic Chef and weaker powered bread machines for roasting coffee, that does not require any power to mix the beans while roasting.
