Advantages: Always ready to use, fast and efficient and a loaf when you need one.
Disadvantages: You want to eat everything youtake from the oven
Here is a product that actually does what it claims it can do ...........make real bread easily , cheaply and when you want it.
As a cook I found the machine along with its instruction clear to understand and use , the many varied bread items the machine can make once you have mastered the basics will keep your family wondering what lovely items they will come home to each day , for once you get started you'll get hooked .
We all know that there is nothing as nice as the smell of freshly baked bread , and with this machine you can achieve this even if you are a complete and utter failure in the kitchen , just follow the clear straight forward instruction and thats it ,all done.
The bread when made will freeze well for up to 6-9 months if stored in heavy duty freezer bags , but if left in a bread bin or cupboard please remember shop made bread nearly always has a preservative in so will keep longer than this home made bread ............that is If you can managed to keep some in the house for more than a few hours once the smell hits the noses of your family !!!!
Have a go at mini rolls, these made now will be wonderful for that christmas buffet or to have on the table with christmas lunch , all warm and smelling heavenly and the in laws will be just so impressed if you say ' yes, of course I made them ' so stick in a batch of dough and of you go.................
Rolls are one of the many things you can make from bread dough , but to do this you need to just use the machine to make the dough and not let it carry on cooking a neat loaf .
I always make sure I have a warm place to put the dough IF I''m making rolls , so using the 'dough only ' part of the machine put all the ingredients in as for normal bread , and then set the machine and let it do its work for you .
Put your oven on at least 10-15 minutes before the dough making process has finished .
When the timer for the machine goes off the dough is ready to use, roll it out of the container onto a lightly floured kitchen unit and nead for a few minutes ( in other words beat the h**l out of it with your fists , just think of it as your bank manager or that parking attendant you got a ticket from !) the dough should feel nice and smooth after having a battering from you and you will feel wonderfully stress free .
Cut it then into half , half each part again and then continue halving each part of the dough until you have the size and number you require.
I cut a one kilo lump onto bridge rolls for buffets ( 30 pieces ) or for just everyday rolls for packed lunches ( 20 pieces ) having made thses dough lumps nead them again lightly ( no its not the traffic warden head ) and make each little lump into the shape you want , then place them in a greased baking sheet and cover each tray with cling film leaving it on top of the oven ( not inside yet please )to double in size.
Having made yourself a cup of tea or coffee and cleared up the kitchen after 30-40 minutes they will have double in size , remove cling film , brush with milk and bake at gas 7-8 or around 200 for about 10 minutes until golden brown and hollow when tapped on the bottom ( thats the rolls bottom not yours)
I get the grandchildren to help me made the rolls in shapes such as :
mini plait ( three thin lines of dough plaited together )
cottage loaf ( small round + slightly larger one underneath , push clean finger into centre to make loaf )
mini long loaf ( roll into long shape and cut three lines lightly in the top )
Summary: One of the best machines I've ever had , easily to clean , and a good price.
