You can choose between 3 loaf sizes, you can bake bread in less time with the Expressbake feature, and you can prepare a variety of bread, dough, and jam.
It’s very efficient in preparing a variety of bread types and it will produce a high-quality bread that comes out soft, and evenly baked. You simply follow the instructions on each recipe, measure the ingredients correctly, and select the desired program and a delicious bread will result. This bread maker is suitable for many family sizes because it allows you to select from 3 different loaf sizes of 1 lb, 1,5 lb, and 2 lb, so you will always have the right amount of bread.
Since the bread pan is not very large, the one kneading blade it uses does a great job in mixing the ingredients. Each kneading cycle comes with an audible signal notification that will let you know when a certain stage is completed, when you have to add other ingredients, or when it’s time for you to take the dough out. This way, you can extend the usage to cakes, dough for pizza, or other specialties. In case you need bread for the evening meal, or for the next day, there is a 13-hour delay timer that allows you to set the machine to start later.
