Should I stop using my bread machine?

Asked by Ltryptophan (10341points) December 15th, 2016

I bought a gently used bread machine. It works like a charm.

There is a paddle piece on the inside that turns the ingredients into dough. This piece and the container the dough sits in is nonstick covered. The container is perfect with no scuffs, chips, marks, or anything. The paddle flaked off a small bit of nonstick while I was washing it. This troubles me.

I talked to the company who said just buy a new machine, but it won’t hurt me if I keep using it. I said ok so if I chip a nice little pile of the nonstick surface off, I can sprinkle it on my cereal and I’ll be fine right? Answer: “Yes! But not recommended”

So, now it’s up to you. What do you think:

Should I

a) buy a new machine
b) buy a new nonstick coated paddle
c) knead my own dough and get a bread pan, and cook bread in the oven
d) use a 3D printer to make a mold of this paddle, and pour my own paddle out of some different material like ceramic, or gold.
e) buy bread from my local organic bakery so they stay in business
f) stick to steamed brown rice
g) Other: ________
