Handling and function
The baking tin has a filling capacity of 3.3 litres. It can be used to make breads of up to 1000 g. The mould is easy to fill and can be inserted and removed by turning it in the vending machines.
The control panel is relatively easy to understand. One of the 12 programs can be set on the control panel by pressing the selection key, which is then named on the screen. By pressing the "Colour" key, the degree of browning can be adjusted in 3 steps. The timer can be programmed using the time buttons. The bread size can be easily determined by pressing the "Dough quantity" button. The Start/Stop button can be used to start or stop the process. Unfortunately, the process cannot be paused. The unit has no interior lighting.
Programs: Normal, white bread, wholemeal bread, fast, sweet bread, ultra fast I, ultra fast II, dough, jam, cake, sandwich, baking
With the bread maker, you can not only prepare different kinds of bread but also cakes, dough, and jam.
Using the timer function, some programs can be delayed by up to 13 hours, so that the freshly baked bread can be ready at 7 a.m., for example, if the ingredients were added at 6 p.m. of the previous day and the timer was set to 13 hours.
The memory function makes it possible to stop the baking process for up to 15 minutes (e.g. in the event of a power failure) without having to restart the machine. The process is simply continued.
The warm-keeping function switches on automatically for 60 minutes immediately after baking.
With the farmer's bread baking mixture a good result with a light brown crust was achieved. The duration was 3:00 hours. The dough was kneaded in the best way and was well on. Otherwise, the bread tastes good and is easy to remove from the mould. The dough hook can also be easily removed thanks to the hook remover.
The pizza dough is also well done. All ingredients were kneaded to a smooth dough within 1:30 hours. The pizza dough also worked well.
The baking tin is relatively easy to clean as the bread and dough are completely dissolved. Do not use abrasive or sharp cleaning agents to avoid damaging the non-stick coating. The dough hook must be soaked if the dough residues cannot be removed. There are no instructions for cleaning in the dishwasher.
The device looks simple and inexpensive. The size of the display is sufficient.
The bread maker has a good manual which quickly explains the functions and the handling. It also provides some good tips on various problems and examples of recipes.
