Performance and Features
It’s very efficient in preparing an assortment of bread types, and it will produce high-quality bread that comes out soft and uniformly baked. Simply follow the instructions on each recipe, measure the ingredients correctly, and select the desired program to obtain delicious bread. This model is suitable for families of all sizes as it offers 3 different loaf sizes of 1 lb, 1,5 lb, and 2 lb.
Since the pan is not very large, the blade it uses does a great job in mixing the ingredients. Each kneading cycle comes with a distinct notification that will let you know when a certain stage is completed, when you need to include other ingredients, or when it’s time for you to take the dough out. This way, you can widen the usage to cakes, dough for pizza, or other specialties. If you want bread for dinner or the next day, there is a 13-hour delay timer that lets you set the unit to start later.
