I recently bought an Oster Expressbake bread maker and thought I would share why I love it so much. This bread maker bakes fantastic tasting bread. The first thing that caught my attention is the Express Bake mode that allows you to bake a loaf of bread in under an hour. I love this and used this setting many times when I need bread for my kids’ sandwiches.
This bread machine is extremely compact and sits on my counter top without taking up too much space. As it is white, it also blends in with the rest of my kitchen decor. I love white, it looks so fresh and clean.
However more importantly is that it is easy to use. The user manual that comes with the bread maker explains about all of the different bread maker settings so even a newbie will be able to use it easily.
The bread maker can make different sized loaves including; a 1, 1.5 or 2 pound loaf. To make the bread is incredibly easy. You simply choose the bread you want to make from the recipe book provided, add all of the ingredients to the pan and close the lid. You then choose the size of loaf you want from the push button display and the type of bread you want to make.
I have made sweet bread and French bread with this bread machine and they were both good. It also makes fantastic pizza dough incredibly quickly. It is so much easier than kneading by hand. There’s a jam setting too. Those of you who love jam with bread, it’s time to start making your own jam which is healthier and not jam-packed with sugar and preservatives!
I just want to reiterate how incredibly easy it is to use. You just place all of your ingredients in (liquids first!) and press start. It is as simple as that. The bread is also easy to remove; it doesn’t stick to the pan. Just remove the pan from the bread machine, loosen the bread slightly with the knife provided and tip the pan upside down onto a breadboard and the bread will easily come out.
Another great feature is that it makes gluten free bread, as it has a special gluten free setting. So when my sister-in-law comes to visit I can make her bread as well.
So I really do love this Oster Expressbake Bread Maker. If you are looking for a bread maker that is user friendly, easy to clean and most importantly, makes bread very quickly, this is the bread maker for you.
