My favourite kitchen gadget

I was cleaning my kitchen today and took a good look at all the gadgets I have in there. I don’t have many. For a start, I have a build-in oven that is not working. If I switch it on, the power in the entire house will trip. It has been years but Darling did not get it fix so I have been baking cakes using my rice cooker. I am not able to bake cookies hence I am quite sad as I am a cookie monster and so do the boys. Sigh…

Then, I have a food processor that I use to make fruit smoothie and ice blended beverages for the family. I also have a soya maker that I use once every blue moon. That fella qualifies as a white elephant in my kitchen. 

And then I have this – a breadmaker. THIS is my love. I use it very often to make breads. I love it when the house smells like a bakery each time we bake a fresh loaf of bread. Homemade breads is a healthier option too as there is no preservative in it. 

I love homemade breads but I won’t do it without a breadmaker. All the kneading and waiting for proofing is just too tedious to do manually. Those without a breadmaker won’t believe how easy it is to bake a loaf of bread. All we needed to do is just add all the necessary ingredients and press a button or two. We continue with our daily routine and a couple of hours later, the bread is ready. 

Doesn’t matter the brand of the breadmaker. They are generally the same. Believe me when I say it is extremely easy to bake a bread using a breadmaker. It is so simple that Ayden is able to do it himself. 

Watch this video of 2Y10M Ayden baking his very own raisin loaf:

If that doesn’t convince you to get a breadmaker, what will? This is NOT a sponsored review :lol:

    When it first made the scene many years ago, everyone in the family rushed out to buy – I didn’t. It was over RM200 then. Now, I never hear of them making break using that anymore – probably sitting in the storeroom somewhere.

    I had a sandwich/waffle maker like your oven – was perfectly all right when we used it on and off and one fine day, the electricity tripped when my girl switched it on – I had to throw it away. :(

    I joined the FB Breakmaker group hence I am still into it coz they post new bakes often so we are all tempted to try. haha. Must keep ourselves motivated in order not to turn into a white elephant :D

    That suck when your built-in oven not working. Better get experienced people to fix it than get your hub. You never know what is wrong with it. Causing a trip not a light issue.

    Breadmaker. Yup, I have been thinking to get one. Haha. But I dont have much space so I am stil weighing whether to get one or not. Sigh. The latest appliance I bought? A food processor and it is still in the box. Geez.

    I used to bake bread once a week but since I found out that I’m the one who finish most of the bread, I seldom bake it now >__<~)
