Performance and Features
This model isn’t called “Intelligent” for nothing, and you will be convinced of this aspect 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 bread, you will love how fast this machine allows you to prepare white bread thanks to its 2-hour cycle. Plus, 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 and deliver fresh bread exactly when you need it. When the bread is ready, the machine keeps it warm for 1 hour, and, in case the power goes off during the baking process, the machine will resume the cycle with the 15-minute Power Interruption Recovery.
Programs and settings
It lets you choose between 19 programs that include a variety of bread specialties, and not only. You can choose either Basic or French bread, make sweet bread, go for the Whole Wheat setting or the Gluten-Free bread, or simply mix the dough or bake without kneading.
The functionality doesn’t stop here, as you can use this bread maker for a wide range of foods. There is a jam setting, a cake one, and even a yogurt setting so you can make healthy and delicious yogurt. The SKG Intelligent Multi-Functional Automatic also works for making sticky rice, rice wine, and it can also fry with a simple touch of a button.
There are 3 crust colors available, so you can adjust the crisp of your bread with the Color Setting button. If you are experienced in handling it, this machine allows you to adjust the bread recipes as you prefer. You can set the unit to memorize your favorite recipe, so you can access it with ease the next time you want to bake bread.
It is compact and comfortable above any other aspect, and it will perfectly fit any kitchen counter or cabinet. It comes in a sleek white PP Food Grade housing with stainless steel accents that make it extremely elegant. The lid opens widely for maximum convenience, and there is a large window on it so you can peek at the bread during the baking process.
It features 3 loaf sizes from 1 lb to 2 lb to match any family size, and the bread pan is coated with a special layer that makes the bread slide out easily. Once you are done baking, you can simply remove the pan by its handle and wash it. To make baking less complicated for you, it comes with a double-ended teaspoon, a tablespoon, and a measuring cup that will help you measure the ingredients.
There’s also a metal hook to help you remove the pan and an instruction manual containing 19 delicious and easy-to-follow recipes. A surprising aspect is that it comes packed in a nice gift box so you can offer it to a loved one.
