Sometimes you need to savor the simple things in life--a warm, freshly baked loaf of bread is a great place to start. Fill your kitchen with the welcoming aroma of baking bread with help from this easy-to-use Oster 5838 ExpressBake programmable breadmaker. The countertop unit makes a wide variety of delectable, homemade loaves--no trip to the bakery necessary.
Whether you're a beginner or a baking connoisseur, easily bake an assortment of favorites using the freshest ingredients--a nice alternative to store-bought bread that often comes loaded with preservatives. The ExpressBake breadmaker makes it possible to provide family and friends with delicious, nutritious baked goods--everything from cinnamon-raisin bread for breakfast, whole-wheat bread to slice up for sandwiches, and sweet bread to enjoy with that next coffee break to rustic dinner rolls or hearty rosemary or olive bread to serve with soup.
A basic bread recipe proves to be a snap with the ExpressBake breadmaker. Just add the measured ingredients (liquid, then dry, then yeast) to the removable baking pan, then gently snap the baking pan into the bread maker, and lower the lid. With the press of a few buttons, the machine takes it from there, baking a 1-1/2-pound or 2-pound rectangular-shaped loaf of bread to delicious perfection. Its automatic keep-warm setting will keep the bread warm for up to an hour, though enjoying it right away is recommended.
The breadmaker's user-friendly easy-access push-button control panel ensures ease of use. Choose from three crust colors (light, medium, or dark) and eight bread settings, which include Basic, French, Sweet, 58-minute ExpressBake (bakes a 2-pound loaf in less than an hour), 80-minute ExpressBake, Whole Wheat, Dough/Pasta, and Bake (for jams and marmalades).
Handy indicator lights, a digital display, and up/down arrows for adjusting the time provide added convenience, and a Start/Stop button turns the unit on and off. Best of all, the versatile breadmaker's 13-hour delay timer means bread can be fully baked and ready to enjoy when you roll out of bed in the morning or when you get home after a long day at the office.
Take a peak without disrupting the baking process thanks to the unit's see-through glass viewing window. The breadmaker also comes with cool-touch housing for safety, while a nonstick surface on the aluminum bread pan ensures baked bread slides out easily.
The ExpressBake programmable breadmaker makes a thoughtful gift idea for newlyweds, new homeowners, or for anyone who enjoys wholesome, flavorful, homemade bread. A user manual comes included, complete with helpful instructions, tips, and enticing recipes for bread like Italian herb, cottage cheese and chive, and apple walnut, as well as recipes for coffee cake, pizza crust, pasta, and more.
