You don’t need top dollar bread making machines for good bread
Baking at home has become more popular, especially during these troubling economic times. Purchasing a bread maker is ideal for getting a home baked loaf of bread with little work. The question may be: What type of bread maker should be purchased and how expensive should the bread maker be? If an inexpensive bread maker is purchased will the bread that is baked still be delicious?
Prices on a bread maker can vary in the are of $ 60 to $300. The consumer must make the decision on what is to be accomplished with the bread machine. The size of loaf and how often the bread machine will be used are typical decisions to be considered.
Sometimes a so-called cheap bread maker that will average around the $60 end will do everything that is expected. For example, the Sunbeam 5891 has 12 cycles of baking and dough selections. These selections include: express 1 hour baking, sweet breads, preparation for dough and cakes, and you may be surprised to know that jam can even be made with this model. Another exciting feature of the Sunbeam 5891 is the delay bake. Imagine waking up after a night’s sleep to a wonderful fresh loaf of bread!
The Toasmaster TBR15 may be another cheap but quality option. This bread machine comes with about 8 cycles which include: a fast bake, whole wheat, French and sweet. This bread maker can produce a loaf a bread weighing approximately 1.5 lbs. Morever, this nifty machine is equipped with a resume bake so that if power is loss for 10 minutes the machine will recommence the cycle of baking.
A cheap bread machine will exclude some features like more dough and bake cycles, and the ability to program your cycles. However, these are features that might not be needed as a casual bread maker.
