I have been looking for a bread maker for a long time now and I am so pleased that I chose this one.
First of all it does 2LB (or 1000g) loaves of bread as well as smaller 600g ones.
It has several different programmes on the menu, including pizza dough and cakes, Jam and compote.
It has a nut and seed drawer, but then so have many cheaper bread makers
There is a programme that you can set up for yourself so you can make bread your way.
So far I have stuck to the basic programme for a variety of breads and the quick setting for Brioche, which was a great success.
However the thing which sets this bread maker apart from the rest in my humble opinion is not all the settings, the ease of use, the ease of cleaning, the hold warm for 1 hour and timer settings, pr the fact that it is solid and well engineered, it is the fact that it produces a very light, very well risen loaf of bread with excellent texture, that is superb to eat.
Recommended without a moment of hesitation.
