Nothing makes a house feel more like home than the smell of freshly-baked homemade bread that invites the family to dinner. Therefore, if you don’t already own a bread maker, you can opt for the SKG Intelligent if you want to start with a compact and easy to use model.
This bread maker isn’t called Intelligent for nothing, and you will be convinced of it from the first time you try it. The resulted bread is of excellent quality, with a soft texture and a perfectly baked crust, regardless of the recipe you try. There is one kneading blade inside the pan, and it manages to mix the ingredients pretty well. If you prefer the traditional, simply baked bread, you will love how fast this machine allows you to prepare white bread thanks to its 2-hour cycle, while the French bread takes no longer than 4 hours.
This is one of the fastest versions with the shortest basic cycle, and no matter which cycle you use, the result will be fantastic. What’s worth mentioning is the 15-hour Delay timer that lets you set it to start at a certain time so you will have freshly baked bread anytime you want. When the bread is ready, the machine keeps it warm for 1 hour thanks to the Automatic “Keep Warm” feature, and in case the power goes off during the baking process, the machine will resume the cycle with the 15-minute Power Interruption Recovery.
