Features of Product

From French bread to gluten free, this bread machine does it all. With it you have a choice of 12 different settings so that you needn’t ever get bored of bread. In fact, you can ditch the bread altogether and make cake and jam! Add to this the crust settings of light, medium and dark and you’ve got a bread machine that provides you with plenty of options to consider.

Aside from deciding how you want your bread, you can also consider when you want it. A delay timer lets you add the ingredients and then set the appliance to begin baking later. This is perfect if you need freshly baked bread for a specific hour such as when you have guests or when you return home from a long day at work.

There are a few particularly welcome design features that make the Hamilton Beach 29882 user-friendly and safe. For example, the cool touch body ensures that you won’t get burned if you touch it when it’s in use. Non-slip feet mean that the product is less likely to move around during the kneading process. A stable bread machine is a safe bread machine! Finally, it’s worth mentioning that it comes with a spare kneading paddle – just in case!
