What's great about the Breadman BK2000B 2-1/2-Pound Bakery Pro Bread Maker?
Collapsible Kneading Paddles: One of the most interesting features of the Breadman BK2000B is the collapsible kneading paddle. This unique item gives the Breadman BK2000B its professional name. The kneading paddles actually collapse and retract from the bread dough so that there are no holes in the bottom of your bread loaf. Features like this are generally only found on the very large professional bread making machines and are often quite pricey. The Breadman BK2000B gives you this spectacular feature at a price that is much lower than most professional bread machines.
Double Baking Pans: The Breadman BK2000B offers the option of many different bread loaf sizes. This option is nothing new in the bread machine world. The fun feature of the Breadman BK2000B is the addition of the second loaf pan. You can now create a large loaf of bread that is up to 2.5 pounds in weight, or you can create separate smaller loaves of bread that bake side-by-side in the machine. The ease of baking a single loaf of bread for your family and a loaf for your friends is a feature that makes the Breadman BK2000B a favorite among bread lovers everywhere.
Automatic Fruit and Nut Dispenser: There is no end to the type of bread that you can create with the automatic fruit and nut dispenser. From delicious cranberry pecan breads to a fresh gingerbread loaf, the Breadman BK2000B is the perfect specialty bread machine. The automatic dispenser places all of your mix-ins into the bread dough at the optimal time during the kneading cycle. No more missing the chime that signals the placement of nuts or fruit. The automatic dispenser is easy to use and easy to clean.
Baking Functions: With 14 internally programmed baking functions, the Breadman BK2000B offers enough baking variety for even the pickiest of bread lovers. These features mean that artisan breads, dessert breads, sandwich breads, and even pizza and bagel doughs are all extremely simple to create. The program menu is easy to read and offers specific baking times for bread crust colors. There are 3 crust color settings that are separate from the 14 programming selections, so you can customize your bread's crust to almost any level. The baking functions on the Breadman BK2000B are so simple to use that even a child can bake delicious bread. Low carbohydrate and gluten free breads are a snap to create with this bread machine so you will not have to break your diet or your budget.
Bake Only Settings: Aside from the 14 program settings on the Breadman BK2000B Bread Maker, there are plenty of internal functions, as well. The "bake only" setting gives you the option of kneading your own bread and setting the machine to bake the loaf rather than knead, rise, and bake. This setting means that you can save time and energy by skipping the use of your own large oven for custom bread loaves.
Accessories: The Breadman BK2000B comes with accessories galore. From an adjustable measuring spoon to a collapsible measuring cup, this bread machine has all of the trimmings. The 3 bread pans that are included with the machine offer a huge range of bread sizes including the large 2.5 pound loaf. A recipe book is included with the Breadman BK2000B that offers over one hundred distinct bread styles.
