Well ... I bought a Gorenje BM1400E bread maker today, I didn't choose so long .... many friends have had home bakers for a long time .. but the other day, my wife and I visited close friends who recently bought an expensive model Tefal BC4002
were very pleased ... in fact, they advised the forum ..
I kind of was ready to buy a bread maker .. but what would be so expensive .. rather not than yes ..
A couple of days later I got hold of an advertising brochure of TECHNOPOLIS .. on the first page on the occasion of the 8th of March this Gorenje BM1400E flaunts with a very attractive price of 1222 UAH. ($ 153.5) and everything else as a gift (purchase for 1 UAH.) Gorenje electronic kitchen scales (cost in the store UAH 294) !! No matter how pleasant the offer would be ... I still, as an experienced buyer, do not make purchases thoughtlessly .. and without any feedback .. I remember what my friends said about the forum ..
BUT ... I didn't leave it like that ... I decided to check it out .. what's the catch ...
I thought for a long time what to do .. I went around all the markets of technology .. except for the above-mentioned reviews, I no longer found .. a really new model. I weighed all the suggestions for bread makers, searched in online stores, read the forum a little ... and understood a lot of things ... in fact, almost all bread machines conceptually work the same way, and this type of product did not take me by the number of "Brand problems" ..: dance3:
Gorenje BM1400E - VERY POWERFUL (if not the most powerful in its class - 815W) for SANE (in my case, at least) the stove money ... this was the main bet in the choice, since only Kenwood BM 450 - 780W) (to which my soul lay the closest, of those that could be found in stock).
The second selection criterion ... no matter how silly it may sound (it's just a bread machine: viannen_10 :) - DESIGN ...
in general, I really love Gorenje because of their design work, but I have a suspicion that the aspect of product design may suffer ...
in general, the design is a BOMB ... I love stylish things ... and in household appliances it plays an important role ... especially in things that you use almost every day =)
* (the photo will show our first purchase of the BURNER FIRM HOUSE - a microwave oven)
the rest of the criteria .. which forced to stop on this particular model ... are:
- custom (manual) baking - you can set specific baking parameters "for your bread"
- an additional form (double), which makes it possible to bake TWO different breads at once (bread makers with additional forms of just other geometries are not competitive here at all, because they simply change the shape of the bread and that's it .. here you can simultaneously bake two different breads weighing about 550 grams =) )
- TWO powerful drives with beaters for kneading the dough !!! with the help of which a perfectly mixed bun is obtained!
- all other functions that are in expensive stoves are present (i.e., the marmalade-jam program, heating after baking, delaying baking, display backlighting, etc.)
- body material: stainless steel
ease of use is amazing .. I'm not a fan of these jokes like "Russian chef", this is generally a technique for downs, and I dare to notice ... more often such an embodiment of prompts can confuse and confuse .. than suggest =))))) )
although the buttons are not signed in Cyrillic .. we did not feel any discomfort =) everything is simple and clear .... as in all the equipment of this manufacturer .. in some way I compare it with the EPL .. such a mac in the kitchen: rolleyes:
now for bread ...
the first pancake .... "damn" is NOT lumpy ...: Party: what my wife and I are very happy about, and the bakery met my expectations, yet it was not in vain that I studied all these nuances and then chased the stove around the city (it turned out that the store near my house in which I was going to buy it sold everything yesterday ...)
was made according to a recipe tested by almost every member of the forum:
Water - 360 ml.
Salt - 2 tsp
Sugar - 2 tbsp. l.
Vegetable oil - 2 tbsp. l.
Wheat flour - 600 gr.
Yeast - 2 tsp
only in spite of the fact that the baking will be the first, and experiments are undesirable .. we nevertheless took the risk of making the following adjustments:
Water - 360 ml.
Salt - 2 tsp
Sugar - 1.5 tbsp. l.
OLIVE oil - 2 tbsp. l.
Wheat flour - 600g.
Yeast (in our case the SAF-MOMENT powder) - 2 hours. l.
baking took place on program 1 (duration 2h 50min.), weight set at 1000g, crust - 3 (very fried, dark), without heating after baking
with words it turned out - very tasty real homemade white bread, fluffy with a very crispy crust - I was just stunned (I really love fresh crispy bread ... yum-yum.: rolleyes :), just such bread was baked by my grandmother more than 15 years ago =)
I post photos with the end of the process and ready-made bread ... right up to weighing on branded gift scales
P. S. after the bread had cooled .. my wife and I immediately ate half a loaf)))))
P. P. S. I am not an expert in writing reviews, and certainly not an expert in bread makers ... but I am a professional user .. and I can distinguish a good worthwhile high-quality thing from confusion ... this time .. - PURCHASE GONE =)
sad note: all my efforts in terms of buying a bread machine and .. (in particular, I brought 3 gifts to the house - an oven, a scale and I also bought a CUCKOO Rice Cooker CR-0821FI multicooker (about it in the next review in the corresponding section)) were not encouraged ... moreover .. my wife loaded me up .. they say why did you buy a multicooker ... I was shocked ... most of them dream of such helpers in the kitchen .. and here you have a knife in your back ... <_ <the tin is full shorter .. I had to buy an iPhone what thread ..: dash2: and to hell with March 8 and all the holidays)))
