Deluxe Bread Machine Reviews
“Making homemade bread is simply delicious! You just need to add the basic ingredients in order, with the yeast added in always last, and then press on the settings. The breadmaker then starts mixing, kneading and baking. You press stop, and then eject it, and enjoy! Simple. And the pan is easy to clean because it’s nonstick! I just love it!” – Eve, Amazon.com
“I just love this model of bread machine! I make tons of different breads with it. Ready made mixes, different recipes, they all come out perfectly. Clean-up is easy too. It’s also small so it’s easy to store. It only takes 5 minutes to make a fresh and healthy type of bread! I love it!” – Loren Grimes, Amazon.com
“Our family is wheat-intolerant, so I’ve tried making bread by hand using alternative flours. The results are always bad. I got my breadmaker yesterday and made 1 loaf of bread using my wheat-free recipe book and it really tasted good. I then made another one from a different recipe and it was great as well.” A. Szot, Amazon.com

A Fast Bread Maker
We are really impressed with this model. It can bake bread at the standard time of only 3 hours, and you can also use the rapid bake mode to bake bread in just 1 hour (59 minutes to be exact). But then, as with most models of breadmakers, you can only use the quick bake mode for making basic white bread.
It’s Super Easy to Use Too
Once you have put all the ingredients in the bread maker and press on the appropriate settings, the unit can be left to work on all the other steps of making bread. First, it will mix all the ingredients; and then it will start with the kneading process. There are also certain periods of time that are devoted to “rising”. And then, it starts with the baking process.
Now this is the best part for our team: Getting the bread pan from the machine, setting the bread to cool (around 30 minutes), slicing it, and eating it!!!
Be Careful with the Crust Settings
We have found that dark crusts can also result in thick crusts. So if you want to avoid this, we suggest choosing the light and medium crust settings when making your bread recipes.
