Breadman TR2700 Stainless-Steel Programmable Convection Bread Maker Reviews

09Once again, Breadman has come out with a fascinating product that includes many more features than you would expect in its price range. Retailing on Amazon.com for a pricepoint of $129.99 on average, this model includes features that some of the most expensive bread makers on the market are only just beginning to introduce. There are, however, some significant issues that you will want to consider if you choose to buy the Breadman TR2700.

Key features

  • 1 hour keep warm setting
  • Convection baking
  • 3 loaf sizes
  • 100+ baking options
  • Crust color control
  • 16 cycle settings
  • Low carb and gluten free settings
  • Automatic fruit and nut dispenser

Convection baking is a huge plus any time you can find it. Excellent rise, great crumb, and a perfect crust are produced by this baking technique, and home bakers are usually anxious to get their hands on a manchine that can convection bake. With more than 100 baking options, including 83 pre-set baking and dough programs, there is really no wonder why this model seems to be quite popular. Sixteen cycle settings are a big plus, especially for such a low price. Low carb and gluten free settings make this bread maker a good pick for individuals with dietary concerns, as well. An automated fruit and nut dispenser is also a great addition to the product, ensuring that your extras are added at the right moment in the cycle.

Loaf size and shape

This machine produces large horizontal loaves, similar to made from scratch bread, or gourmet store bought loaves. Loaf sizes are 1, 1.5, and 2 pounds.

Dimensions

18 ” x 11 ” x 15″ inches

Settings and cycles

The Breadman TR2700 Stainless-steel Programmable Convection Bread Maker is loaded with settings. The machine’s programs can all be adjusted by the user, and 16 pre-set cycles for doughs and baking, available in 3 loaf sizes, are included. Three levels of crust doneness – light, medium, and dark, are included as well.

Cycle length

There are 83 separate courses that are pre-programmed into the machine. They vary in time from 55 minutes to 4 hours and 30 minutes. Most of the baking cycles on this machine have a duration of 2 hours 30 minutes to 3 hours 30 minutes. A complete list of program options and times is available in the manual for this bread maker, which can be found on the link at the bottom of this article.

Additional features

It’s hard to delve into the extra features of this model, because it comes preloaded with nearly everything you could ask for. One feature that isn’t as common, even in high end models, are the handles. They make moving the machine a breeze, if necessary. That’s a good thing, since it has a bit of weight to it.

Many breadmakers these days include timers, but most are for a thirteen hour max. The Breadman TR2700 has a 24 hour delay timer that can come in handy when you know you won’t have time to bake the following day, but would still like to enjoy some fresh bread.

Pros

When this bread maker works, it truly is a thing of beauty. The numerous features allow you to make fantastic bread for a fraction of what you would pay at a local bakery. Automatic fruit and nut dispensers are rarely found in this price range, but this model incorporates them. Convection baking is another huge plus. Your options for what to bake and when are innumerable.

Cons

Breadman has been facing some quality control issues, and it appears that this model is no exception. Despite coming preloaded with numerous high end features, the company cut corners on this model. Areas of basic craftsmanship were overlooked, and problems such as those which plague the TR2500BC are prevalent. Breadman and its manufacturer have received so many complaints, in fact, that according to individuals who have posted negative reviews on Amazon and similar sites, they were told that the company may discontinue customer service for the brand.

Conclusion

Despite the numerous features available on this model, the company’s declining customer service and increasing complaints don’t bode well for its future. Breadman’s simpler models still seem to be of value, but unfortunately its convection bakers and other complex baking machines appear to be poor investments at present. If you choose to buy this model, do so only if you can obtain a guarantee. The numerous options and automated features make it a good buy if it works, but its a gamble that I wouldn’t advise without a guarantee to back it up.
