Gluten-free eating was one of the big health trends last year and it looks set to continue into 2015. Yet sticking to the diet doesn't necessarily mean cutting out your favorite baked goods, as a new gluten-free bread maker proves.
The brainchild of Panasonic, the SD-YR2500 Bread Maker offers a short-rise feature that enables users to also bake gluten-free foods using a wide range of recipes, in addition to standard "rise" modes.
In fact, the machine's 16 different baking modes mean it can be used to whip up white bread, baguettes, pizza dough, pasta dough and more. An external temperature sensor measures and adjusts temperatures throughout the baking process to ensure a consistent finish.
It was unveiled at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, alongside the brand's MJ-L500 Slow Juicer. The juicer features a powerful low-speed DC150W motor which enables the user to create healthy drinks from frozen fruits and vegetables as well as hard or dense whole foods and helps to preserve the food's nutrients.
The Slow Juicer will become commercially available in July and the bread maker in September.
