Kitchen Pro Bread Maker
The Kitchen Pro Bread Maker is yet another option when it comes to buying a machine to cook you fresh bread when you want it. Regal Ware originally introduced the machine way back in 1985, and they stopped being made in the late 1990’s. However, this doesn’t mean that there aren’t any around! You can pick up a Kitchen Pro Bread Maker from thrift stores, sales and both online and offline auctions. The only issue when doing this is that the Bread Maker Manual is most often missing, but you can find one on the internet to counter this.
The instructions for baking bread in a Kitchen Pro Bread Maker are as follows:
1) Set the bread maker in an area which is close to a power outlet, but not too clear to anything else. Remove the bread ‘pot’ and was it in hot, soapy water before you put anything in. Ensure that it is dry and clean, and then you are ready to start baking!
2) Remove the bread pan and start adding your ingredients. Don’t be afraid to try different quantities and different types of bread mix, as you will soon find that making bread has a lot of trial and error in it. There are so many different types of bread mix that you can purchase, and the manufacturers are unable to come up with a guide that suits them all; so improvise a little! Make sure that the ingredients are at room temperature, and place the water or other liquids in the bread maker first. Don’t put too much flour in, and make sure you don’t forget the yeast! Bread without yeast is known as rock bread, because its rock hard and not useful for anything!
3) Allow the bread maker to do its thing. If you want fresh bread when you wake up, or when you get back, and your bread maker allows this, set the timer so that the bread is ready a few minutes before you want it. This will give it a bit of time to cool, and make it much easier to get out of the pan.
4) If you want, double check the mixing and kneading process by opening the lid. Just make sure that all of the ingredients are being mixed together. Some bread makers have a poor design which allows big chunks of flour to go unmixed. There is truly nothing worse than biting into one of these! If you get a Kitchen Pro Bread Maker you shouldn’t have this issue though, as the mixers tend to be quite good. Bear in mind that a double paddle will always be more efficient and effective than just a single one.
5) Allow the bread to cook, and when it is done open the bread maker and allow it to cool a little. Enjoy the smell, and when the bread has cooled enough to get out, pick the pan up and shake the bread up. Serve it hot if you want, or wait for it to cool right down. Bread is best eaten quickly after being cooked; it tastes much better than what it would if you leave it for a few days.
A Kitchen Pro Bread Maker might not be the easiest thing to get your hands on, but if you keep your eyes open for one then you will most likely score a bargain! Otherwise, a White Westinghouse Bread Maker is another good option.
