Ideal Home (UK) - - Contents -

With the lat­est hi-tech, user-friendly mod­els now able to make a wide range of ar­ti­sanal breads, in­clud­ing baguettes and bagels (and some even the jam to go with them!), this is one kitchen ma­chine that wonõt end up col­lect­ing dust at the back of the cup­board

1 FOR THE PER­FECT CRUST

The ma­jor­ity of bread mak­ers only heat the dough from the base, but this new model recre­ates the con­di­tions in­side a baker’s oven, mean­ing you can achieve a lovely au­then­tic crust at home. ZP2000 HARD CRUST BREAD MAKER (H27.3XW40.4XD33.9CM), £249.99, PANASONIC
