There’s nothing quite like the warm aroma of freshly baked homemade bread from the oven. With the help of this user-friendly bread machine, even those with a busy, on-the-go schedule can enjoy this simple pleasure–without the time-consuming hard work normally associated with baking bread. Just add ingredients, press a few buttons, and it takes care of the rest. The machine automatically adds yeast at the proper time from a dispenser on the unit’s lid. It also bakes non-yeast, quick breads– like banana and gingerbread–and sweet cakes. And it mixes, kneads, and rises doughs for pizza, croissants, and other pastries without baking them. A timer permits the machine to be programmed up to 13 hours in advance so fresh bread or cake is available for breakfast or dinner. For cleanup convenience, the baking pan is nonstick. Clad in metal and packing 410 watts of power, the machine measures 14 inches wide, 13 inches high, and 9 inches deep. Its instruction booklet is exceptionally easy to understand and includes recipes for 40 breads and doughs along with an insightful guide to baking basics and illustrated tips for making pastries. Choice of Bread Modes include BASIC for crispy brown crust and tender interior. WHOLE WHEAT for breads using up to 100% whole wheat flour that’s rich in fiber, vitamin B groups and vitamin E. Choice of Baking Modes include BAKE: the unit automatically mixes ingredients, kneads the dough, rises it and bakes it. BAKE (LIGHT): mixes, kneads, rises and bakes as in the BAKE mode, but the crust color will be a little lighter. BAKE (RAPID): the unit mixes ingredients, kneads the dough, rises it and automatically bakes it faster than the standard BAKE mode. DOUGH: the unit automatically prepares dough for pizzas, dinner rolls, doughnuts, croissants, bagels, etc. Capacity: minimum 1 1/8th cups to maximum 2 1/4 cups of bread flour/whole wheat flour. Bread loaf is oblong shaped. Measuring spoon and measuring cup included.
