In your opinion and from experience which is the best automatic bread maker machine I can buy in India either online or offline?
Please choose carefully as the imported ones are either made in China or Europe. If you buy from online, please check carefully for the returns instructions - there would be a voltage compatibility, import charges etc and in case you return it, it can be tiresome. For example, Max Star BM01 Super Chef Bread Maker comes from China.
Please be careful when you choose, from Indian sites, you can go for Russell Hobbs RU 23620 bread maker or Kent Atta and bread maker but check that you have a service shop or authorized dealer close by for help, in case the unit does not work or has repair/ trouble.
How far will it be useful in our daily use?
Having seen this used in some homes in England, I would say, it would not be very useful in our Indian day to day life because. One needs to have a passion to bake loaves of bread, cakes etc to use it regularly, trying out the various options. For 2 loaves of bread, it takes almost 1 1/2 to two hours. Tidying up the pan and changing blades for various items needs patience.
Many of the delicate electronic equipment that works with electricity and a software needs to be chosen carefully so that the voltage etc matches or else it would risk a breakdown or non-functional status. In practical terms, it would more convenient to buy it from the local baker or buy the regular brands that have a shelf life of 7 days (Nilgiris, Modern). If you are still interested, I would say, visit your local kitchen appliance dealer shop whom you know and ask him/her to get a good one for you, also mention that you will need their help with warranty and breakdown cover.
