Rosewill R-BM-01 Bread Maker Review

Rosewill is a rather new company who sell a wide variety of different products ranging from computer cases to microwaves. They seem to be a jack of all trades when it comes to electrical products, and in 2011 they added a bread maker to their lineup. The Rosewill R-BM-01 Bread Maker is an economical choice which comes with a number of  nice features, but is it a worthwhile choice? Let’s take a look at that below.

Product Features:
To begin with we aren’t entirely sure where this machine is made. Rosewill have offices in Taiwan, China and the USA so it is likely sourced from Taiwan or China. Nonetheless from what we have seen on Amazon and Newegg, Rosewill are very quick to respond to any queries and complaints so this is a very good sign.
Now let us have a look at the design to begin with. On first impressions it is a somewhat ordinary design.The glossy white color with the curved front panel is somewhat run of the mill, but this is to be expected from a sub $70 product. It is by no means a bad design, but it certainly is not too eye catching in any way. The dimensions of the machine are again quite average at 13.75″H x 15″W x 11″L. The main controls are on the front of the machine which surround the lcd. The lcd screen is quite small, so we would have liked to have something a little larger. There are two large vents on the side, and the viewing window on top is quite a good size without being too noticeable. The feet of the Rosewill bread maker have non slip bottoms, so these will keep it in place when it is operational.

This machine has 12 recipes to pick from including basic, french, whole wheat, quick, sweet, ultra fast 1, ultra fast 2, dough, jam, cake, sandwich and bake. This model can make two different loaf sizes including 1.5lbs and 2lbs. The bread pan is the vertical variety, which is to be expected in a bread maker in this price range. It is covered in a nonstick coating which is most likely teflon. However reports have said that this particular tin is quite hardy, and it does mention that it is dishwasher friendly which is a nice bonus for such an affordable machine. It has a single paddle, and this is powered by the 600 watt motor. As to be expected there are also three different crust types to pick from including light, medium and dark. There is also a built in timer which can be set up to 13 hours in advance. Cooking times are a little over 3 hours for most recipes so no surprises there. If you are using the Ultra Fast recipes then these cooking times are dropped down to a blistering 58 minute in total. With such as fast cooking time the results aren’t quite as good as the standard recipes, but this is to be expected. If you are baking a specialty type of bread, the machine will beep four times to let you know when it is time to add the extra ingredients. After the bread is finished baking it will switch over to keep warm mode which lasts for 60 minutes.

So the big question at this point is how good is the finished product? From the many different sources we have read, it makes bread very well. There are hundreds of user reviews all over the internet which praise the bread made in this machine. The textures are great, and the crusts always comes out well if the recipes is followed correctly. The ingredients are put in liquid first, then dry and finally yeast on top. As long as you follow this simple formula with the correct amounts of each ingredient, you are almost sure of getting a well made loaf of bread in a few hours time. For this reason this seems to be a popular bread maker as it works well, and is quite affordable. With a retail price of under $70 it is not a bad choice, and since it is a few years old now you can even get it at less than $50 in certain places. At that price the Rosewill bread maker it is definitely worth considering.
