TIPS WHEN YOU ARE BUYING A BREAD MACHINE
1. ASK YOURSELF
The most important thing you should consider when buying a bread machine is asking yourself if you truly need it.
Are you interested in a healthy lifestyle, one that involves healthy foods especially whole grain bread? Do you have celiac disease and would love to save your money from expensive gluten-free bread out there? Are you a conscious-eater and always want to know the components of the food?
If you answered yes in some or all the questions above, the bread machine will be put in regular use and you can buy one.
2. Cheap or Expensive?
If you don’t bake often, you just bake during occasions or stuffs, then I suggest you you to buy cheap baking machines. But if you do use it regularly then spend more and go for the expensive one. It maybe expensive, but trust me it’s worth it and will save your money on the long run.
3. For how many people?
The size of the bread machine also matters, if you are alone or with a lover, then buy a machine that fits for just few breads. But if you have a large family or many friends, then you should consider buying a bigger one. It saves time, energy and effort!
4. One or two kneading blades?
If you are just making small and tall loves, then one kneading blade will be enough for you. But if you want to make a long one, go on with the two kneading blades. We highly recommend the two kneading blades model as you can use it efficiently in baking.
5. What kind of controls does the machine use?
Take a look at the program of bread machine. Is it easy to understand, well-labeled, suit your preferences and flexible to your own choices? If no, you know what to do! Pick another one, choose something that wouldn’t confuse you. You bought a bread machine to make things easier, not worse.
