Modern cuisine is very different from what, for example, our mothers had. Today we rattle pots much less thanks to modern appliances. Yes, and cooking is not necessary, a bunch of food deliveries and abundance in stores save us from this. Plus, the rhythm of life as a rule does not leave us time to stand at the stove, and I want to devote all our free time to ourselves and loved ones.
Skipping all the lyrics, let's move on to the subject of review. Why buy a bread machine? My reasons are the love of our whole family for fresh bread and all sorts of rolls. Plus, in this model there are functions that I really need and I use them on a regular basis. With her appearance, much has been simplified for me, about this in order.
How did the choice begin? From the Internet. I looked at a bunch of models, and all such clever helper assistants)))) There are a lot of functions, they cost a little, my head was spinning. But in the end, I still decided that my unit should do the following: bake bread and make dough. And doing it well. Other functions like pilaf, soup and others I do not need.
The choice focused on the Moulinex OW240E Pain and Delices , because its functionality, although expanded, but the main task is still baking.
The price at the time of purchase ranged from 8500 + delivery to IM, and from 9000 to household appliances stores.
Description from the manufacturer:
In the quote, everything is described in sufficient detail, there is nothing to add. Enumerate the characteristics in other words do not see the point.
In the photo below, the bread machine itself and everything that is attached to it.
Measuring bowl for liquid and bulk products.
Scoop. A large replaces a tablespoon, a small teaspoon.
Bowl for the preparation of dairy products.
Hook With a large loop you can get a hot bowl with a loaf, and a small hook on the other hand is designed to remove the kneader from the bread, because it gets stuck there.
A book with a description and a couple of practical recipes.
A simple panel with buttons and descriptions of modes.
All modes are numbered and signed, never make a mistake when installing the program.
The display is without backlight, but in the process of use, I never thought about the backlight. Everything is clearly visible, but in the dark I do not cook.
Of the extra bought scales. On the recommendation of a consultant, they bought the simplest ones, as he put it, there is not much difference between them.
Lid of a bread machine without a window. It also does not bother me. You can open it at any time and see what happens there. This does not affect the quality of baking at all. For when the dough is opened, such a lid will retain more heat.
The bowl is deep, comfortable in shape. It turns out bread is a brick.
Sometimes flour gets inside, for example, wiping it will not be difficult.
I read that the first time nothing edible comes out, the bread may not be baked or the bread's lid may fall inside, this has never happened to me. Of course, by trial and error, we finalized the recipes found, somewhere there is more salt, somewhere sugar, etc.
Our first bread howled was baked in fast bread mode, weight 500 g., Medium crust. It didn’t come out handsome, and it seemed a bit fresh to us, but it turned out I hurried up and added flour a little more than necessary, and therefore not mixed areas formed on the edges, and the bread itself cracked.
In the beginning, we opened the lid every 10 minutes and stuck our noses there, it’s interesting to see. Now I just load the ingredients and wait for the signal that everything is ready. Below in the photo is a large bread per 1000 g., We found a recipe for Italian bread with olive oil and olives.
They tried to bake the bread from the boxes, this is of course the most elementary option, they bought to calm curiosity, besides, I really like Borodino bread and his recipe turned out to be very difficult (for me), so again we found a box from which I tried I am delighted, it turns out very tasty.
In French bread mode, an air loaf with a crispy crust is obtained, we ate it almost entirely at a time.
Bread is not the only thing I bake on it. Tried to make cupcakes. They also come out wonderful! The cupcake mode is designed in such a way that after the bread machine knead the bulk, it emits a signal to add extra. ingredients, nuts, candied fruits and everything you want. In the photo, a cupcake with a walnut.
Very often I use modes for kneading dough. at the moment I am doing all the dough only on it! It is convenient that you can select the right mass. For our little family I knead 500-700 gr. dough, for example for pizza or dumplings. In the photo, pizza dough, proportions are selected for a baking sheet of my diameter, from 700 gr. it turns out two pieces. I make the dough in olive oil, you won’t find it in the store, and I don’t know how to put it myself. Whatever it does is impossible. Rather, it turns out .... But it is better to go and buy a finished one ... And here is always a great result. No need to fuss with the search for a warm place to make it distance, and the kitchen is cleaner and there are less dishes to wash after.
