Bread Maker Tips
Maybe you have just bought a bread machine and are wondering how it works, or you want to find out if bread makers are worth it. Whatever your question, we have the answer right here!
Once you press ‘start’ on your machine, put a timer on. You are basically trying to see how much time passes between you starting your machine to when the final rise begins. Your bread machine should have a manual with the timeline of each step, so with some simple maths, you’ll be able to work out when your bread begins it’s final rise.
When I first got my bread maker, I got a little confused with the delay timer and ended up setting my bread on multiple occasions to bake much earlier than I intended. It wasn’t until the morning that I realised that my bread had just been sitting there for lord knows how many hours!
Teflon is actually a brand and Teflon products are made from polytetrafluoroethylene. I won’t even attempt to pronounce that and neither should you! Just call it PTFE for short.
Teflon is a synthetic material which has been used in pans and many kitchen appliances since the 40’s. it’s a hydrophobic material meaning wet substances do not stick. That’s as far as my ‘science’ knowledge goes.
There are only a few things that are better than freshly baked bread that is warm, fluffy and irresistibly delicious. Bread has become a staple in everyone’s house and it is so easy to get your hands on it. You can either head to your local bakery, bake it by hand or use a bread machine.
Bread makers are a godsend if you want fresh bread but don’t have the time to knead the dough and make the loaf by hand. Totally worth the investment! Fresh, homemade bread is far better than store bought bread and much healthier.
Bread makers have been around for a while now, and although they are not a necessity in the kitchen, they certainly make the process of creating your deliciously doughy loaf effortlessly.
Bread machines do all of the hard work from us. But, using machines can also take away that personal touch and extra love you put into making a home-baked loaf.
