The large digital controlled LCD display makes it easy to select its functions.
With its programmable timer you can program it to have a fresh bread ready for morning breakfast or dinner time.
If you prefer to use your conventional kitchen oven, this Panasonic bread maker will knead the dough for you and you can then shape by hand and bake. It even makes a variety of home made pasta and pizza dough.

A measuring cup and spoon are included.
This unit also does not have a viewing window.
