Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

QWhat are the best types of bread to make in a bread maker?
ABread makers are best used for traditional square loaves - this fit well in the bread tin, and the appliances can handle everything from mixing to baking. However they can also just make the dough for a variety of other breads - from rolls to bagels -which you can then bake in a separate oven.
QWhy is a delay timer useful?
AA delay timer allows you to set when the bread will start cooking, meaning you can schedule the bread to be finished when you wake up in the morning.
QWhat is a fruit/nut hopper?
AThis is a special addition to the bread maker, which allows fruits and nuts (such as raisins or walnuts) to be gradually added to the dough during mixing, allowing for an even distribution through the dough.

Bread Maker Buying Guide

A bread maker, as the name suggests, is a machine that allows for the easy baking of all different types of bread. Bread makers usually consist of a rectangular box, with a removable baking tin into which the ingredients are added. This is then placed into the machine, and a program controls the mixing, rising and baking of the bread. They dramatically cut down on the work required to make high-quality bread, meaning it's easier than ever to bake it in your home!

Bread makers are primarily differentiated by their capacity. The bigger the bread maker, the larger the loaves it can bake. Some smaller machines can only bake loaves around 500-600g, while larger models can bake loaves as big as 2-3kg.

Programs

Nearly all bread makers will come with some form of programs already set up on the machine. These provide easy ways to make specific different types of bread - from standard slicing loaves, to French bread, doughnuts, pizza bases, cakes and buns. Many machines also allow you to specify the crust of your loaves - you can set it to light, medium or dark depending on how well-cooked and crispy you prefer your bread.

Some bread makers will allow you to create custom programs, so you can experiment with different recipes. They may also contain extra programs for non-bread cooking - such as making risotto, soup, pasta sauce, and even jam!

Finally, if you frequently find yourself short on time, and need to bake some bread quickly, it may be worth seeking out a bread maker with a fast bake program. While it doesn't create a loaf as high-quality as the longer settings, this mode can create a full loaf of bread from scratch in under an hour - perfect if you need some quick bread for dinner, or are running to a tight schedule.

Timers & Pre-programming

One of the large benefits of bread makers over standard hand baking is that they contain a timer for baking the bread. You can schedule the bread to be ready for exactly when you want it - the machine will automatically start baking at the correct time. This is especially useful for breakfast - simply load up the machine with ingredients before you go to sleep, set the program to finish when you wake up, and you’ll have fresh bread waiting for you at breakfast!

Fruit/Nut Hopper

Some more advanced types of bread maker contain separate hopper for additional ingredients to be added to the bread, such as dried fruit or nuts. When used in a program, these ingredients are gradually introduced to the dough during the mixing stage, allowing the nuts or fruit to be mixed consistently through the dough. With this addition, it's easy to create delicious specialty loaves such a walnut loaf, dried cranberry bread, or Greek black olive bread!

Resource ID 64
Most bread makers will also include a recipe book that gives more details on the included programs, and how best to use them. Many also include a free measuring cup, to accurately measure out ingredients for your bread.
