The Bread maker Onyx by Unold does its job reliably. The name of the keys is not immediately understandable. In addition, the arrows indicating the selection are very difficult to read on the small screen. It is the only device on which you can set your own program.
The Bread maker Onyx by Unold has a poorly understandable menu and a small screen on which it is difficult to read the settings, at the same time it is the only device on which you can set your own program.
Handling and Function
The baking tin has a filling capacity of 2.4 litres and bakes bread of up to 1000 g. The baking tin is easy to fill and can be inserted and removed by turning it in the machine.
The control panel is written in German, but the key designations do not directly indicate their meanings. The display is very small, so the arrows indicating the selection are hard to see. On the control panel, the menu button can be used to select one of the 13 programs shown in the manual or the adjacent list, which is very practical. The "Crust" button can be used to adjust the degree of browning. The "Time" button can be used to program the timer time. The "Step" button can be used to determine the bread size. Through the window, you can see the contents. The process can be started or aborted with the Start and Stop button.
Programs: Base, white bread, wholemeal bread, fast, yeast cake, ultrashort I, ultrashort II, dough, jam, baking powder, toast, baking, own program.
With the bread baking machine, you can also save your own program.
Using the timer function, some programs can be delayed by up to 13 hours, so that the freshly baked bread can be ready, for example, at 7 a.m. if the ingredients were added at 6 p.m. of the previous day and the timer was set to 13 hours.
No information on the duration of the memory function.
The keep-warm 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 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. The baking tin and the dough hook are not dishwasher safe.
The device looks rather cheap but requires little storage space. You may need to wipe the device more often to remove fingerprints from the stainless steel surface.
The bread maker has a good manual, from which the functions and handling can be quickly learned. It also provides some good tips on various problems.
