What's great about the Emeril by T-fal OW5005001 3-Pound Automatic Bread Machine
Loaf Capabilities: The Emeril by T-fal is capable of producing a 3 pound bread loaf. This is the largest size loaf available in a home bread machine. A 3 pound loaf is perfect for big families, or for sharing with the neighbors. If you are not ready for a large bread loaf, the Emeril can also make either 4 baguette loaves or 1.5, 2, or 2.5 pound bread loaves. This type of flexibility is not found in many bread making machines. The Emeril by T-fal really delivers when it comes to the true family-sized bread loaf.
Accessories: The Emeril by T-fal
comes fully equipped with large non-stick loaf pan and mini-baguette pans. All of these pans are easy to clean and are made of very light aluminum. Each pan comes with an easy to use handle that allows you to pick up a hot loaf of bread without any danger to your fingers. Along with the loaf pans, the Emeril by T-fal includes a spectacular recipe booklet. From artisan breads to cake doughs to specialty loaves, this recipe book has it all. You can create your own freshly baked sandwich bread, baguettes, artisan breads, or look to the book for something special for a party.
Keep Warm Mode: The bread warming mode that is preset in the
Emeril by T-fal
is perfect for those days when you have a dinner party. Warm bread is a delicious addition to any meal, and the Emeril provides space for both the baking process and the warming process. You can even use the warmer to reheat bread that has been cooled previously. The Keep Warm mode is useful for up to an hour after your bread is completed in the baking mode for freshly made loaves.
Programmed Modes: The Emeril by T-fal
comes preset with 14 programming modes for perfect bread and cakes. These internal presets make it extremely simple to create delicious artisan bread, gluten free loaves, and even low carbohydrate breads without the complicated programming necessary for many bread makers. There are three preset options for crust darkness, allowing the user to enjoy a crisp and crusty bread or softer sandwich loaves. Baguettes and cakes are also simple to bake with the programming modes available.
What's not so great about the Emeril by T-fal OW5005001 3-Pound Automatic Bread Machine?
No Customized Options: If you are a daring bread baker, you will probably want to customize some of the bread making process within your Emeril by T-fal bread making machine. Unfortunately, this is not possible. Although the touch pad allows you to select crust coloring and baking time length, the Emeril does not offer customized programming. If you must have custom breads, you will need to add the use of your standard oven to this bread maker.
Size: The Emeril by T-fal
is a big bread making machine. This bread maker looks great on the counter top, but it does take up plenty of room. At almost 27 inches wide at the base, the Emeril is one of the largest bread machines available. Of course, the bigger size is the only reason that the Emeril can be used to create those larger bread loaves.
Fruit and Nut Dispenser: The Emeril does not offer a fruit and nut dispenser attached to the bread machine. This means that if you are mixing raisins, nuts, or cranberries with your bread dough, you will need to time the mixing yourself. Without an automatic dispenser or a mixing alarm, the Emeril is missing a vital piece of equipment for the more complicated breads and cakes. You can still add those mix-ins yourself, but these additions go much easier with an automatic dispenser.
Is the Emeril by T-fal OW5005001 3-Pound Automatic Bread Machine
