Bread machines for dog treats simplify homemade dog treats and homemade bread, and this selection of bread makers includes the top brands.
I just love making homemade dog treats with a bread machine! There is nothing in the world that is easier. And, even if you are a veteran bread baker, you will enjoy the convenience of making dough, pizza and bread with a bread maker.
So why would I be talking about bread machines on a website with dog treat recipes?
It seems that, as I began making more and more dog cookies and biscuits, I started to look for easier ways to get the job done.
The fun part of making the dog treats was cutting shapes and decorating them.
On the other hand, the part that took time and was not so much fun, was mixing the dough.
Since I already had a bread machine, I tried using it to make the dough.
Bingo! Dog treats suddenly got easy!
Choosing the Best Bread Machine for You
Perhaps you have made bread, using a mixer with a dough hook, and then you kneaded it by hand.
Or maybe you never even tried to make bread.
No matter what your skill level, you will love using a bread machine for bread, pizza dough and dog treats.
Bread machines, literally, do all the hard work for you!
Bread machines for dog treats make the process sooo much easier!
What to Look For
When Buying a Bread Machine for Dog Treats
Size and Weight
You’ll be storing your breadmachine, so it needs to be a convenient size for you to store—and move. If it is too large or too heavy, you won’t use it.
Many bread machines now have a delayed start that you set with a timer.
If you can delay the start you can wake up to fresh dough for your dog treats, or raisin bread for toast for your family!
This allows you to bake while you are fresh, instead of later in the day, when you may be tired.
Loaf Size or Capacity
If you will be making lots of dog treats at a time, whether for a dog bakery, for holiday gifts or just to stock up for your own dogs, you’ll need to have a large capacity bread machine.
Some bread machines can make a large, 3 pound loaf (or dough).
Your bread maker must have a dough cycle if you will be using it to make home-made dog treats. Otherwise you won’t know exactly when the dough is ready.
In addition, with a dough cycle, you can use your bread maker to make rolls, free form bread loaves and cinnamon bun (my personal favorite).
Appearance of the Bread Maker
If you will be leaving the bread machine on your counter, how will it look in your kitchen? Does it blend in with your other appliances, or would another bread maker look better?
If you’ll be looking at it, day in and day out, this could be pretty important to you.
Manual and Instructions
All bread machines should have a manual. Are the instructions clear and easy to follow? If you’re not real techy, this is important. You need to be able to operate the machine!
How easy is your bread machine to maintain? If it’s stainless steel, do you have to polish it often? Can the tub be washed in the dishwasher or do you have to wash it by hand?
Most bread machines are easy to clean by hand, but if this is important to you, make sure you understand how complicated cleanup will be.
I put this reason last, as it should not be the only thing that you consider. Too often we look at the price of an item and we buy strictly on price—even if paying only a few dollars more would get us a whole lot more in value! Choose your bread machine carefully, considering the best value—but make sure you don’t skimp on quality!
Breadmachines have different features, and choosing the right bread maker is a very important decision. Make sure you understand exactly how you will use your bread machine, and then choose the one that will best suit YOUR needs…
