  • What's the point of a bread maker when you have an oven?

    • Reduced labour and better results.

      I retired a few years back and started baking my own bread. In the oven. Even though I have time on my hands the reasons I bought a breadmaker 6 months ago (in my case a Panasonic SD-ZB2512KST, since replaced by the SD-YR2550SST and very much NOT on special price) were:
      - 'non-labour' time;
      - no kneading required at all;
      - and, most importantly to me, consistent temperature for rising.

      The actual labour input of making bread is not that high. But when you factor in that you have to leave the bread sitting for first rise, re-knead, and then second rise and subsequently into and out of the oven for the bake, it means you have to be around for many hours and ready to perform those operations at the appropriate time.

      Secondly, I just hate kneading. Have I kneaded enough? Have I overkneaded the dough?

      Finally, providing a consistent, warm temperature for bread rising can be tricky in winter when the house can be a little chilly during the day. Models like the Panasonic have a couple of temperature sensors, for internal and ambient temperature, and of course a heating element that can provide the optimum rising temperature.

      Baking a loaf of bread with appliances like these require about 5 minutes of actual work. Some hours later your bread is done.

      I have the older model 2501 and it is next level awesome. As Aglet, it's less than 5 minutes of work to put in the ingredients, set the timer to when you want it done (for me its usually the next morning when I wake up). Voila - the whole house smells like freshly made bread.

        I have the SD2501 and I agree it’s amazing. We use it to make pizza dough often try this bread recipe sometime
        2 cups rye flour
        2 cups white flour
        1.5 teaspoon yeast
        1.5 teaspoon salt
        2 tablespoons sugar
        1 to 1.5 tablespoon of butter or oil
        1 and 1/4 cups of water
        4 hour cycle medium size light crust

      After using a bread maker for a while to do the end to end I now use it just to knead and do the first rise then do the second rise in the loaf pan and use the oven to bake. When I use the bread maker I always seem to lose a few slices to the paddle holes. But as commentators have said using the bread maker is easy and you can set a timer so you wake up to fresh bread. That's a great way to start the day.
