Performance and Features
It can make tasty bread, and it’s not that difficult to use, especially if you read the manual carefully. It features two paddles that knead the dough very efficiently, without sticking to the bread, making it easier to clean afterward. Another advantage is that the loaf pan is longer, thus allowing you to make baguettes and regular loaves. If you have a large family, you will want to get a product that can make bigger loaves, and luckily for you, it can make 2 or 3 pounds pieces.
It’s worth mentioning that there are 3 crust color options, so you are free to choose one that will suit your individual preferences. The best part is that, besides making bread and baguettes, you can even make different types of tasty cakes, such as pound cakes, and even knead pizza dough. It features an automatic 1-hour warming cycle to ensure that your loaf stays hot and tasty for longer. It can make regular bread in under 2 hours, which is a plus. It takes almost 1 hour and 30 minutes to mix the ingredients, knead, and rise the dough.
Programs and Settings
It comes with a 15-hour timer, so you can set it to make bread at a specific time of the day, according to your schedule. Furthermore, it integrates an auto shut-off as well, for safety reasons. We like that this specific model is very versatile, as you can use it to make different types of bread, cakes, and many other things.
It features 14 settings that include Whole wheat, Basic white, Sweet, for those who have a sweet tooth, Express, so that you can make bread in a shorter amount of time, Dough, French, Gluten-free, Rye/Multi-Grain, for those who want to make healthy and tasty bread, Salt-free, Cake, Baguette, Pasta (it only kneads the dough) and Jam, so you can make delicious fruit jam whenever you want. If you have never used a bread machine before, and you are somewhat unaware when to add ingredients, you can rest assured knowing that it features an audible beep to notify you when it’s time to include the extra ingredients, such as nuts, seeds, chocolate or a fruit. Therefore, you can be sure that they will be properly mixed into the dough, as well as being cooked properly.
The main thing that sets it apart from many other models is that it comes with a removable baguette baking tray that allows you to make four individual baguettes. If removing the paddles from the bread when it’s hot is a bit difficult, you can use the tool included in this package to separate them from the hot bread.
The machine measures 26-1/2 by 19 by 15-1/2 inches, so it’s a fairly large appliance, but the good news is that it stays put on the counter. The pan itself is 8 5/8″ by 4 3/4″ by 6″ tall, so you can make traditionally regular-sized loaves. This model comes with a recipe book that has 24 recipes, 12 recipe cards created by Emeril, and an instruction manual. So feel free to read it when you want to learn something new. Because its housing is entirely made of plastic, the machine is very easy to clean and maintain.
