Handling and function
The device is relatively difficult to remove from the packaging because the polystyrene protection is placed to the right and left of the device. Due to the very compact packaging, polystyrene cannot be gripped and pulled out. The baking tin has a capacity of 3.3 litres. Breads of up to 1000 g can be produced with it. The mould is easy to fill and can be inserted into and removed from the vending machines by turning it.
The control panel is easy to understand, but the transparent keys are very thick and cast shadows on the key illustrations when the light source is illuminated from above, making it difficult to see. On the control panel, one of the 12 programs that can be found in the manual can be adjusted by pressing the program button. By pressing the button with the pictured bread and the +/- sign, the degree of browning can be adjusted in 3 steps. The timer can be programmed using the "+" or "-" keys. The bread size can be easily determined by pressing another 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: Base, white bread, wholemeal bread, pastry, yeast cake, short 700 g, short 1000 g, dough, jam, cake, sandwich, baking.
With the bread baking machine, you can not only prepare different kinds of bread but also cakes, dough and jam.
With the help of the timer function, some programs can be delayed by up to 13 hours, so that the freshly baked bread can be ready e.g. in the morning at 7 o'clock if the ingredients were put in at 18 o'clock 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 5 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 and the dough hook are unfortunately not dishwasher safe. Only measuring cups, spoons and dough hooks are allowed in the dishwasher. The baking tin is relatively easy to clean, as the bread and dough are completely detached. Abrasive and sharp cleaning agents should be avoided in order not to damage the non-stick coating. The dough hook must be soaked if the dough residues cannot be removed.
The device looks simple and rather old-fashioned. 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.
