Fresh bread is easy with this bread maker. With 16 preprogrammed menu options offering three crust colors, and three loaf sizes offering over 100 bread, dough/pizza dough, sweet cake and jam choices, you can wake up to pretty much any baked good you please. There are healthy options too, including low-carb and gluten-free preset menu options and recipes. The "artisan dough" option has menu choices that take basic dough through several long, slow cool rises for chewier textures and rustic crusts. Smart features include an audible beep that indicates time to add fruit, nuts and other "mix-ins"; a second tone offers option of removing paddle before baking, or removing unbaked dough to shape by hand; a 15-minute Pause, bake-only option, 12-Hour delay start timer, and power failure backup. For every type of bread, a unique convection feature circulates air for superior crust color, and texture. You'll be a fan of the bread, but the look is great, too. With classic lines, smooth brushed stainless steel, embossed logo and large, sturdy, stay-cool handles, you'll be proud to have it out on the counter. 680 watts. Limited 3-year warranty.
