To use Kenwood’s new BM450 bread maker you simply put the ingredients in and press the button.
The easy-to-follow LCD display takes the user through the process and there is a choice of 15 programmes for a 500g, 750g or 1Kg loaf with a light, medium or dark crust.
You can also set a timer to enable the bread maker to start making the bread in the early hours, so you can wake up to freshly-baked bread, and there is a one hour keep-warm setting. In addition, the rapid bake function can have a loaf ready to eat within 58 minutes.
The BM450, which is finished in black and stainless steel, is fitted with an internal oven light which allows users to check on whatever they are making.
To add to its versatility, the bread maker can also make jams, doughs and cakes.
