There are a plenty of bread machines available for purchase that vary in manufacturer, size, color and capacity. Price too has a large range. You can pick up a cheap bread maker or you could spend much more than that for the Zojirushi BB-CEC20.
Some bread makers, like the Kuissential BMC-001, have automatic fruit and nut dispensers. What this does is add your choice of fruits and nuts during a cycle of the bread making process. The nut dispenser can hold up to ½ cup of nuts and dried fruits.
The delay timer setting will allow you to choose exactly when your bread will get done. You can delay the start of baking for up to 13 hours. This is perfect if you want to have fresh bread for breakfast or dinner. There is movement that takes place in the bread making process, so one must consider; does it “walk” while in use? Meaning, does it move about when in operation. This is important to know because if sitting on the countertop, it could end on the floor. Some customers have stated that during the kneading process, it does shake. However, if you place the bread maker on a flat surface away from the edge of the counter, you should be fine.
There are 13 preset settings: basic (white and mixed), French, Whole Wheat, Sweet, Rapid, Multigrain, Sandwich, Gluten-Free (perfect if you have gluten sensitivity), Dough, Cake, Jam, Bake, and Home-Made (customizable setting). That’s a lot of choices. The “rapid” option means that you can have basic bread ready to eat in just 2 hours.
This machine automatically kneads, proofs, and bakes the bread. Literally, all you do is put in all of the ingredients and the Kuissential BMC-001 does the rest of the work for you. You can even select the crust darkness: light, medium, dark.
