You want a machine with all the little extras that makes bread-making fun and delicious. Then you should consider the Breadman 2200c it is billed as the ultimate bread machine, and with its many features, it might well live up to its name.
Of course, the Breadman Ultimate can do everything your ordinary bread machine can do, make a variety of breads, doughs, bagels, pizza doughs and then builds on top of that. It will also make jam and quick breads.
A handy feature that you will not find with your average bread machine is an automatic dispenser for late cycle additions like raisins, apples, nuts or whatnot. Just be careful the raisins aren't too sticky.
The Breadman 2200c is also programable, so that if you like chewier bread, you can make longer kneading cycles. If you have special recipes you want to try out you can create a program designed specifically for that bread. However, if you are just looking for a variety of great breads, you can rely on the 110 pre-programmed settings.
If the Breadman 2200c has a limitation it is the single bread paddle. Some have reported incomplete mixture of ingredients, but we have not experienced this problem ourselves. It is also reputed to be noisy, but during the kneading cycle, this seems to be a common phenomena among all bread machines. As the kneading cycles are usually fairly short (seldom longer than three minutes) this should not be a factor in buying a bread machine (unless you plan on sleeping next to it).
With a horizontal pan the Breadman makes traditional style loaves. It has a nice size window, if you like to keep an eye on the bread as it works. The delay timer gives you a long 24 hours, to help you use your time more effectively. The machine is rapid bake capable, but remember, these rapid bake cycles do require special and more costly ingredients than regular bread.
An interesting feature of this machine is the 60 minute power failure backup. No, this is not a built in generator. If the power goes out, this feature will remember where the machine was in its work on your bread and you can make it resume operation where it left off.
As you can see, the Breadman 2200c has about everything you can imagine needing on a bread machine. It is a high-quality machine, but if you have problems, it comes with a one year warrantee, which is common to most bread machines sold in the U.S.
The Breadman 2200c Ultimate Bread Machine is a good buy at just under $100.00. It can be purchased through Amazon.com.
