Panasonic CROUSTINA - new breadmaker

#1 Post by Martin Zwick » May 17th, 2019, 12:42 am

Today is World Baking Day and by coincidence I found an interesting review of a new breadmaker in the swiss newspaper NZZ yesterday night. I looked for other reviews in Germany and all the experts praised the machine.

Fair to say I have extremely good bakeries around the corner, so there is no need to bake bread by myself. But at my week-end house near Berlin there is no bakery. Here we go.....my new kitchen gadget on the shopping list.

BTW, there is a great special feature with this machine, a timer. So you could let the machine bake your bread during the night and in the morning you will wake up with the smell of fresh baked bread. I would say there exist no better smell in the house than the perfume of a woman, fresh brewed coffee or fresh baked bread. [highfive.gif]

P.S. and makes Pizza dough and surprisingly also marmalade

If it also churned butter that’s a great start on breakfast!

Interesting, I am all in favor of technology for cooking but unitaskers are less interesting. Especially when you can make no knead bread as easily. I urge you to watch Mark Bittman's NYT video with Creator of no knead -

Now I own a Croustina breadmaker and the first results were quite positive. First, a bacon bread and second a pizza dough.
The bread had a fine crust and the crumb was impressive. Also quite fresh the second and third day. The bread took 3h in the breadmaker and the pizza dough 45min + resting extra. Next will be a walnut bread.

Several bread makers tested and published in the The Telegraph.

My wife had a machine that died several years ago and we haven't replaced it yet. It was nice to wake up to fresh bread in the morning. I'm curious if anyone has experience with the Zojirushi BB-PDC20BA?
