Bread making just got infinitely easier in Japan with National’s automated home bakery SD-BT153. Yes, it looks like a rice cooker, but more amazingly, it actually works pretty much just like one, too. All you have to do is put all your dry and wet ingredients–butter, sugar, water, yeast–in the silver container, close the lid, and press COOK. The menu on the left lets you pick what exactly you’re making–French bread, loaf of soft bread, quick loaf, etc. It also makes pasta, cake, and mochi. Oh, and if you want to make raisin bread, there’s a special little tray for nuts and raisins that will dispense them evenly into the bread as it cooks.
