It is no mistake that bread comes in all shapes and sizes; it is meant to be enjoyed in so many different ways. And of course, there are the varieties: from sweet to sour, bread enjoys a diversity that can rival any other food. However, just because choices exist, it doesn't necessarily mean we take the time to explore these options. And when we do, sometimes the results weren't quite what we expected. One way to keep control over the ingredients from start to finish is to bake the desired loaf yourself.

The Breadman BK2000B Bakery Pro Bread Maker provides a couple of options that allow users to take complete control over their favorite breads. Allowing for the baking of a small loaf or a large loaf, the bread maker gives users the opportunity to select the particular option they may desire. As a nice touch, the appliance finishes loaves without the commonly seen hole that results from the kneading paddle baking in the bread; the bread maker features a folding paddle, which lies flat while the bread actually bakes.

The bread maker features 13 preprogrammed baking functions, allowing for bread lovers to explore a multitude of varieties. Differing cycles exist for white, wheat, and sweet bread, while specialized functions exist for low-carb, gluten-free, dough, and even jam-making. Finally, there is a fruit and nut dispenser, making it easy for bread fans to enjoy any variety they can dream up--in whichever size they prefer.
