Which brand of bread maker is best?
It’s a common question to ask which is the best bread maker when starting out to make the bread the first time. Here is a link to an article about selecting the best bread maker.
Bread, in all its various forms, is the most widely consumed food on earth. It’s an important source of carbohydrates and it’s also portable and compact. This helps to explain why it has been an integral part of our diet for thousands of years.
Bread is a baked food product made from flour or meal which is moistened, kneaded and then baked. It’s been a major food source since prehistoric times. Bread has been and is made in various forms using a variety of ingredients and methods around the world.
The first bread was made around 12,000 years ago (some reports suggest as far back as 30,000). It was most likely created from a coarsely crushed grain mixed with water resulting in a dough that was laid on heated stones and baked by covering with hot ashes.
It is assumed that the Egyptians discovered that allowing wheat doughs to ferment, thus forming gases, produced a light, expanded loaf. The Egyptians also developed one of the first baking ovens.
Flatbread is the earliest form of bread. This type is still common in much of the Middle East, Asia, and Africa. The main grains used in flatbreads are corn, barley, millet and buckwheat.
The First Sliced Bread
In 1917, Otto Rohwedder, an itinerant jeweler, created the first mechanized bread slicer. Initially, many companies were convinced that housewives wouldn’t care much about the invention and it took a decade before it was installed in a factory in 1928. Yet, within two years, 90 percent of store-bought bread was factory sliced.
About Bread Makers
Bread makers normally take between three and four hours to bake an average loaf of white and a little longer, maybe four hours, to bake wholegrain.
Usually you begin by adding the ingredients into the bread maker, either in the form of a pre-mixed bread mix or by measuring out the ingredients on your own. The machine then kneads and proves the loaf for you before baking it. It is not a fast process and you can expect it to take at least three hours per loaf.
Bread Makers Functions Vary
Bread makers vary in function and features. Some bread makers have more than just the basic bread cycles. Although more expensive, some bread machines have jam, dessert loaves, sweet dough, gluten-free and cake cycles that and make them a versatile kitchen appliance.
The Key Ingredients For Bread
The process in a bread machine is the same as making bread by hand. The main difference is the machine does the mixing, rising, and baking.
Here are the only four ingredients needed in break making in a bread machine:
- Yeast (or a starter)
- Liquid (typically water or milk)
- Salt (for flavor and to control fermentation)
How much do bread makers cost?
Most bread makers cost range from $50 to $300 and up. Your average non-specialty bread maker is around $75 – $150. It’s important to pick the highest quality one you can afford. Although higher-priced machines may have more features, however, most will make a perfectly good loaf of bread, which is the main function and goal of your bread maker.
