Advantages: make fresh bread, not expensive, bread smells nice
At Christmas I got a Morphy Richard's breadmaker, as I'd wanted one for quite a while now. I chose the Morphy Richard's as it is a well known brand and a lot of my kitchen appliances are made by Morphy Richard's.
The breadmaker comes with an instruction manuel and a measuring cup and spoon to weigh out all your ingrediants.
As soon as I got it home I had to try it out to see what it was like. I made a basic white loaf. Here is the ingrediants you need:-
Water = 1 1/8 cups
Skimmed milk powder = 2 1/2 tbsp
Sugar = 2 tbsp
Salt = 1 1/4 tsp
Oil = 2 1/2 tbsp
Strong white bread flour = 3 cups
Dry Yeast = 1 1/4 tsp
Just add all the ingrediants in to the baking pan, shut the lid and choose the bread you are making, choose the colour of the crust which is light, medium or dark and then press start. It's as simple as that.
The basic white loaf takes 3 hours to bake. After 20 minutes your breadmaker will beep to let you know you can add any ingredients to your bread like currants, etc.
The smell of the bread whilst baking is lovely and it makes your mouth water and hungry.
Once the bread is ready, it will beep to let you know. You then leave it to cool down for about 20 minutes.
The size of the bread is large (1 1/2 lb) 680gm.
There are many different types of bread you can make including brown, granary, french, chocolate and many more. I would not like to taste the chocolate one though as it does not sound very nice. You can also make dough receipes like pizza dough and rolls. You can make cakes too. So far I have only made white bread and wholemeal bread.
There is a window on the lid of the breadmaker, so you can watch your bread bake and rise.
The settings for this breadmaker are:-
Basic White - 3 hours
Quick - 2 hours and 20 minutes
French - 3 hours and 50 minutes
Cake - 1 hour and 50 minutes
Wholemeal/wholewheat - 3 h
ours and 40 minutes
Dough - 1 hour and 30 minutes
Extra Bake - if you want it too cook for a bit longer.
There is a delayed timer, so if you want fresh bread when you wake up in the morning, you can put all the ingredients in the baking pan before you go to bed, and set the timer so it will be ready for the morning. This happens by setting the timer at a certain time to start baking the bread.
There is a 2 year guarantee on the breadmaker if anything goes wrong with it.
I bought it from Index and it was £49.99 but there was a sale so I got it for £44.99 which is a good price and I am glad I bought it.
I would definitely recommend this breadmaker as the bread is delicious and smells lovely too!!!
