About the Breadman Bread Maker BK1050S

Breadman’s Bread Maker BK1050S
OUR RATING

Breadman’s Bread Maker BK1050S is an updated version of some of their older models. That said, the design is unique, modern, and fancy. Not many bread maker brands have a square-shaped bread maker.

This bread maker has a refined stainless steel exterior making it tough and durable. The steel also gives it a sleek design for any kitchen and matches stainless steel appliances.

On the top of the machine is a large viewing window so you can check in on your bread to see how it’s doing while it moves through the bread-making process.

This machine weighs in at a little over 17 pounds, making it a bit on the heavy side. You won’t be able to carry around your kitchen easily.

Because this model is 16 inches tall, you’ll have to make sure it fits on your shelves or under your cupboards. If you’re looking for a compact design, you should probably find another bread maker.

This machine has a digital display that’s easy to use. Choosing your settings is easy. The buttons are push-control so prevent you from hitting the wrong one and not realizing it until it’s too late.

Included with this bread maker are a measuring cup and an adjustable measuring spoon for accuracy. We all know that accurate measuring is a must when it comes to the chemistry of baking bread.

This bread maker also comes with an extensive recipe book that has over 80 bread recipes for you to try out.

    Breadman’s Bread Maker BK1050S is super easy to use so it’s great for new bread bakers. It’s easy to program and has rapid options so you don’t have to wait hours for a loaf of bread if you need it right away.
  2. 2
    The large range of settings makes this machine great for anyone. If you’re on a low carb diet, there’s a setting for that. If you’re gluten intolerant, there’s a gluten-free option, too.
  3. 3
    The inside of this bread maker has a nonstick coating so your bread doesn’t stick to the pan. This means you can remove the bread without ruining it and makes clean up easier later on.
  4. 4
    One of the most exceptional features of this machine is its collapsible kneading paddle. Once this paddle is done mixing and kneading your bread dough, it collapses so it’s out of the way. No more worrying about the paddle getting stuck in your bread or having to remove it before it starts baking. This also makes the paddle super easy to clean.

  8. 8
    This bread maker comes with a fruit and nut dispenser. This dispenser drops any extra ingredients you want in your bread at the optimal time, right before baking.

What Do Others Have to Say?

What Do Others Have to Say

The Breadman Bread Maker BK1050S is popular among new bakers and people who have been baking bread for decades.

It runs a bit on the pricey side but it’s worth it for all the extra features that you just won’t find in cheaper bread machines.

Our rating: We give this bread maker 4.5 stars out of 5.

The most cited advantages of the Breadman Bread Maker:

  • The biggest advantage cited by buyers is the collapsible kneading paddle. You just don’t see this type of paddle in most machines and it helps create the perfect loaf of bread.
  • Another favorite feature is the nut and fruit dispenser. It makes your job easier if you want to add extras to your bread because you don’t have to wait for the kneading cycle to finish. Just fill the dispenser and walk away.
  • Bakers find that every loaf of bread comes out perfectly. It’s evenly baked and rises just right.
  • People on a low-carb diet absolutely love the low-carb setting on the machine. They can still eat the bread they want without worrying about consuming too many carbs.

The most cited disadvantages of the Breadman Bread Maker:

  • The biggest complaint by buyers is that the machine is noisy, particularly when the fruit and nut dispenser runs.
  • A few have complained that the kneading paddle on this bread maker scrapes the bottom of the bread pan, scuffing it up.
  • One person has had the issue of oil leaking into their bread dough. This may just be one defective bread maker as it was an isolated complaint.
  • The digital display is hard to see for those with any vision impairments. The numbers and settings are of a pretty small size.
  • It’s bulky and heavy, so it’s hard to store when you’re done.

The Bottom Line

Breadman has upped the ante. This model is built to last and has features that you won’t find on any other bread machine. It’s a great addition to your kitchen when you want fresh bread around all the time.
