I love bread. Okay, Oprah said it too, but I do! We eat bread with almost every meal and I see no way of removing carbs from my diet any time soon. If you’re gluten free, keto or vegan, you can still enjoy delicious bread at home. With a bread machine you can have bread any time and you don’t even have to get your hands dirty!
What is a Bread Maker?
In 1986 the first bread maker was introduced by a company that’s now known as Panasonic. By 1987, people were able to use this small kitchen appliance in their own homes. Today, these machines are smarter; offer more features and choices. Anyone can enjoy a fresh loaf of bread made in their own home!
So how does this small appliance do it? To make a loaf of bread you would add all the ingredients such as yeast, flour, sour cream, water, salt and sugar. The machine would mix all the ingredients together and then let it rest. Once it rests and rises, it will remix the dough and let it rise again and then bake it. This small machine truly does the work for you!
If you want gluten free bread just use gluten free flour and make sure to set your machine to gluten free setting. Keto bread can also be made with your bread machine as well as other goodies. What kind of goodies, you ask?
- Banana Bread
- Rice Pudding
- Tomato Sauce
These are just some of the other items you can make with your amazing little bread machine!
Depending on the machine you get, you can easily set the loaf size, crust color and delay the baking process. You can also easily add the ingredients you want and make healthy whole wheat and nut breads.
Do you Need This Machine?
If you love bread but hate the grocery prices and ingredients you can’t read or understand, then you’ll love this machine! A bread maker is great for anyone that is pressed for time. Some machines allow you to add all the ingredients and set the time when you want it to bake or work its magic. So, by the time you come home or wake up in the morning, you can have fresh bread!
Another reason you might consider getting this appliance is if you don’t have a working oven. I have a working oven but hate making bread in it. I never know if the bread is done, needs more or less time and it ends up being too hard or not done in the middle. A bread maker does all the calculating for you and makes you a perfect loaf each time! Another reason I love it is because it allows the dough to rise in a warm place. I have a drafty home and it takes forever for dough to rise in the winter.
If you want to save some money or try different bread recipes, the machine can help. My cousin just told me that she spend over a hundred dollars on keto bread! That bread, including buns, won’t even last her a month. Not only that, you’re paying for processed bread with added preservatives. Who wants to pay to put that in their bodies?
In my opinion, every home should have a bread machine. They are easy to use, affordable, and will give you fresh, delicious and always perfect bread, every time! Be sure to get a bread slicer so that every slice is perfect and even.
