Baking maker for small breads with simple operation.

The bread maker KULT X of the brand WMF is particularly suitable for small to medium-sized breads.

Handling and function

With a filling capacity of 2.1 litres, the bread maker is the smallest in the test. Breads of up to 750 g can be produced with this machine. The baking tin is easy to fill and can be inserted and removed from the vending machine by turning it.

The control panel is easy to understand and intuitive to operate. The program button on the control panel can be used to set one of the 12 programs in the manual or on the enclosed program card. The tanning degree can be adjusted by pressing the button with the 3 symbols below it. The "+" and "-" buttons allow you to program the timer time. Another button can be used to easily determine the size of the bread, with gram indications next to it for good orientation. If the size button is held down for a longer time, the interior lighting switches on and offers a view of the contents through the viewing window. The Start and Stop button can be used to start, pause or cancel the process.

Programs: Classic bread, white bread, wholemeal bread, quick program, sweets, gluten-free, ultra-fast program, dough program, jam, toast, cake, 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 10 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.

Result

The result of the farmer's bread baking mixture was very light in our test, although the crust was adjusted to medium. A crust is almost non-existent. The duration was 3:15 hours. The dough was kneaded very well and went up well. 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.

Cleaning

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.

Appearance

The comparatively small device looks simple and of high quality. If necessary, the device must be wiped more frequently to remove fingerprints from the stainless steel surface.

The size of the display is also sufficient.

Instructions

The bread maker has a good manual which quickly explains the functions and the handling. It also provides some good tips on various problems.

Also, you will recieve a small recipe book and a practical program card.

We have evaluated a good 40 reviews on the Internet. In summary, it can be said that about 65 percent of buyers are satisfied (4 stars) or even very satisfied (5 stars). Partially (2 stars) or completely dissatisfied are approx. 20 percent of the users. The average score at the time of the evaluation was 3.7 out of 5 stars.

The machine has a filling capacity of 2.1l. The size of the pizza, in the end, depends of course of how thick or thin you want to roll it out.
