There are many programs to choose from when making bread with this bread machine. You can make regular bread, whole wheat bread, or sweet bread quickly using the three rapid settings.
These programs reduce the baking time by an hour. This is very convenient for people who are in a hurry to bake bread. There are two automatic settings that make whole wheat bread.
In the manual, there is only one recipe for making whole wheat bread. This might confuse some people who want to make rapid whole wheat bread and normal whole wheat bread. The loaves can be of three sizes; 1, 1 ½ and 2 pounds.
If you enjoy white bread, you’ll be disappointed to learn that the T-fal Actibread bread machine does not include a white bread automatic menu program, but we discovered a recipe for white bread in the handbook.
The French bread technique, on the other hand, delivers comparable outcomes when it comes to producing white bread. The bread pan is secured in place by locking springs and simply needs to be turned when releasing. It’s constructed of non-stick ceramic, so removing the loaf and cleaning up are a snap.
When you select the dark crust color setting, the dark crust color setting made the crust too dark. We advise you to use light or medium crust color settings instead.
The manual is important for first-time users. It contains information and recipes on how to use the bread maker.
At first, it looked like the manual was only in French. But when we scrolled further down, we found the English version from pages 18-31. To get the manual, you can download it from the T-fal website.
The package that you received has 25 recipes, 15 more than the downloaded version.
The instructions for the gluten-free bread were clear and easy to follow, even for beginners. However, one potential downside is that you are not able to customize your ingredients when making gluten-free bread using the 3 gluten-free bread programs.
This is a good set of accessories for making bread. It has all the things that you will need to make high quality loaves.
- Measuring spoon
- Kneading blade removal hook
- Extra kneading blade
- Recipe book containing 25 recipes
- Measuring cup
- Kneading paddle
When it comes to bread, most people are undecided about whether or not to remove the kneading paddle. The kneading paddle in most bread makers is baked into the loaf. When the baking process is completed, simply remove the kneading paddle with a paddle hook. When removing the kneading paddle from a baked loaf, use the removal tool.
