No matter the shape, taste, and origin, breads are and will always be a part of our lives. It is hard to imagine living on a daily basis without seeing, smelling, or tasting a piece of bread, which is one of the primary sources of carbohydrates.
However, would it not be more satisfying and gratifying if the bread we are eating is the same as from years ago, slowly baked fresh daily in an oven at home. Perhaps, nothing beats the aroma and the flavor of homemade bread. The reality is, though, more and more people have lesser time in kneading and baking homemade breads because of other responsibilities. This is where bread mixers come in.
Basically, bread dough mixers are pretty much like the standard mixer in shape and parts. What sets this mixer apart is that it comes with a more powerful motor for tougher and stickier dough. A normal mixer might work well for cookie dough where the end result can easily be worked through. However, once you encounter a lump of bread dough, your standard mixer might overheat from all the pressure it needs to exert.
Bread dough mixers have received a lot of hype basically because it makes baking easier. Before, you would need to manually knead dough and work the ingredients one by one. From experience, you would know that a precise amount of time spent kneading and definite pressure is needed as well. With a dough mixer, all you need to do is set the motor, fill the bowl with the ingredients and set it to mix the ingredients and knead the dough by itself.
With the presence of bread dough mixers, we are hoping that more and more moms will find the time to actually make homemade bread for their families. It would just be refreshing to chew on one without the added preservatives for a change.
