7 Reasons For for Choosing the Gastroback 42823

Jam Making Function

The Gastroback 42823 has a jam making function, and so do the Kenwood BM260 and the Rommelsbacher BA550, whereas the Ariete 133 and the Gorenje BM900WII do not. More ...

Strange but true: bread makers are also very good at making jam. They provide heat and a constant source of stirring, which makes them perfect for easy jam making. Some advanced bread makers come with this program built in.

While you may not use it every day, an auto jam making function on your bread maker will make creating homemade jam super easy!

Keep Warm Function

The Gastroback 42823 has a keep warm function (as do the Kenwood BM260 and the Rommelsbacher BA550), whereas the Ariete 133 and the Gorenje BM900WII do not have this feature. More ...

A 'keep warm' function allows the bread maker to stay on a very low heat once the bread has been baked, keeping it warm until you're ready to use it.

This function is helpful if you aren't going to be using the bread for a little while after it's baked - it'll still be warm by the time you come to use it.

Delayed Start Timer

The Gastroback 42823 has a delayed start timer (as do the Gorenje BM900WII, the Kenwood BM260 and the Rommelsbacher BA550), whereas the Ariete 133 does not have this feature. More ...

A delayed start timer is a special system that only starts the bread cooking after a certain time has passed. You can load in ingredients, and then after a set delay (1 hour, 3 hours, etc) the device will get to work.

Delayed timers are helpful because it allows you to load up ingredients last thing at night, then set the timer so you wake up in the morning to freshly-baked bread!

A Lot Smaller Minimum Bread Weight

The Gastroback 42823 is a 500g min bread weight bread maker (as does the Ariete 133), whereas the Gorenje BM900WII is a 750g min bread weight bread maker (250g bigger) and the Rommelsbacher BA550 is a 700g min bread weight bread maker (200g bigger). More ...

'Minimum Bread Weight' is the smallest possible weight of loaf that can be made in your bread maker.

Better Kagoo Score

The Gastroback 42823 has received a Kagoo Score of 88, but the Ariete 133 scored only 71, the Gorenje BM900WII scored only 70, the Kenwood BM260 scored 86 and the Rommelsbacher BA550 scored only 69.

More Shops Are Selling It

A greater number of retailers increases the price competition amongst retailers for this bread maker and also increases the chances of the product remaining in stock.

One More Award

The Gastroback 42823 has received 1 award, however the Ariete 133 has received no awards, the Gorenje BM900WII has received no awards, the Kenwood BM260 has received no awards and the Rommelsbacher BA550 has received no awards.

5 Reasons Against for Choosing the Gastroback 42823

One Less Auto Program

The Gastroback 42823 is an 18 auto program bread maker, whereas the Ariete 133 only has 19 auto programs. More ...

'Auto Programs' denotes the amount of built in programs that your bread maker will come with. These allow for the easy creation of everything from loaves and rolls to more specialist types of bread, and even non-baking foods like jam or risotto.

The more programs on your bread maker, the more versatile it'll be, and the more foods you can cook with it.

$284 More Expensive

The Gastroback 42823 is more expensive than the Ariete 133 by $31, more expensive than the Gorenje BM900WII by $25 and more expensive than the Kenwood BM260 by $284.

Over Two Years Older

The Gastroback 42823 is older than the Ariete 133 by five months and older than the Rommelsbacher BA550 by two years.

12% Higher Running Costs Over Five Years
