Cuisinart CBK-200 1Choosing your bread machine

 

Choose a bread machine with size adjustment feature

 

The modern bread machines offer you complete customization as far as the size of the bread loaves is concerned. For different recipes, you need different loaf sizes. The standard bread machine would bake one pound or one and a half pound breads. But by making simple adjustments to the settings, you can bake larger or smaller breads. You want to have breads fresh out of the oven and don’t want to bake a bread that would sit in your fridge and wilt. By customizing the machine, you can make that much amount of bread that you can consume fresh.

By looking at the shape of the bread, you can say that it was baked in a bread machine. These breads would have vertical, square loaves. However, the modern bread machines can bake breads in different shapes. For instance, if you want a more traditional looking bread that is horizontal and rectangular in shape, you can get that as well. These breads are easier to cut. But at the end of the day, you have complete freedom in shaping your bread loaves – square or rectangular, and you can purchase an appropriate bread machine.

 

The more functions the merrier

 

The best bread machines are highly versatile in the way they function. You can have the machine knead the flour and bake the bread and save you from the messy, manual labour. Bread machines today can have one or two kneading blades and the latter option is generally accepted to be better. You can also look at knead-only settings. Once the flour is kneaded, you can take it and bake a cake in your oven. There are also the bake-only features that are ideal for baking fruitcakes and gingerbreads and other similar delicacies.

There are other two elements in baking pans that are useful. One – you may want to look at a machine with a removable baking pan. This would make it easier for you to clean the pan. Two – look for baking pans with wire handles. You will find it easy to take the pan out when hot.
