There are many reasons that you would want to start baking your own bread at home. Maybe you are just a cooking and baking fanatic and want to create your own unique brand. Perhaps you live in a household that goes through a loaf in less than a week and are sick of going to the store, just to buy bread. Then there are those of you who have a gluten allergy or are trying to keep the Carbs down. Gluten-free bread is not as easy to find as others like wheat or rye and can be more expensive. Baking bread from an original recipe can be fun, but unless you get the ingredients and temperature right, the end product will not look like something that you want to eat.
Zojirushi BB-PAC20 Breadmaker
This machine makes the art of breadmaking easier than ever, taking on the tasks of kneading, baking and shaping. The result is a delicious, 2-pound traditional-style loaf with an even layer of crust. You can either begin the process, which takes up to two hours, right away or set a delay timer of up to 13 hours.
The BB-PAC20 has menu settings for basic bread, whole wheat and gluten-free. You can also choose between light, medium and dark crust shades. Making these bread variations is incredibly easy with the help of the included DVD and user manual. First, you mix the fresh ingredients that are listed in the recipe book, which is also included. After that, you measure out the ingredients, place them in the machine and press your desired setting. Once the bread is done, it is easily removed from the machine with two handles and slides smoothly off the non-stick pan.
Another cool thing about this machine is that it is not just limited to whipping up fresh loaves of bread. It also has settings, and recipes, for cake, jam and multi-purpose dough. You can also save up to three different settings to the home menu for a quick and easy experience.
