Cooking Dinner In A Smart Bread Maker
As technology advances, more and more appliances are built to be more sophisticated and distinguished from their previous counterparts. Bread machines in particular are no longer the clunky primitive devices that they used to be. Nowadays, they come with LCD touchscreens and programmable settings. In fact, some are so advanced that they come with built-in microprocessors as well. These microprocessor programs give the machine the ability to make subtle adjustments when it comes baking bread in regards to heat distribution. Meaning that, the machine can automatically adjust its temperature, unlike a traditional bread maker of the past that had simple heating elements. Due to the fact that modern bread makers contain microprocessor programs, not only do bread makers cook bread, they can cook a wide array of things such as meatloaf. Let’s take a look at what the modern bread maker consist of, interesting features that most of them come with and the details to my very own bread maker meatloaf recipe.
Panasonic SD-YD250 Automatic Bread Maker With Yeast Dispenser
The Panasonic SD-YD250 automatic bread maker is a prime example of the typical modern bread maker. It has the ability to automatically add yeast at the ideal time to ensure that the bread is made perfectly, 3 choices of loaf sizes and up to 2 and a half pounds of loaf capacity as well as a variety of programmable settings such as the option to utilize a 13 hour delay start timer which means that you can program it to cook your bread so that its warm and ready as soon as you step through the door after a tiresome day at work.
However, the thing I love about this bread maker is the fact that it has a variety of microprocessors that essentially enable the opportunity of being able to cook a wide array of other things besides bread. It’s comprehensive microprocessor program gives it the ability to make slight heat adjustments automatically. To put things in retrospect, imagine cooking a turkey in an oven that has sensors that tell it that it needs to focus more of its heat into the inner portions of the turkey as opposed to the outside portions of the turkey. Said in simple terms , it’s microprocessor program essentially gives it the ability to target and distribute its heat, similarly to that of an microwave. What this means is that it does a great job of cooking the interior and exterior portions of whatever you put in it. And as you may already know, the trick to cooking meatloaf is to ensure that it’s cooked on the outside as well as the inside.
