ProPrice, Ease of use

It was my birthday recently and we have recently moved into a new house, put these two factors together and you get a simple equation…Birthday Present = house gadget! Now I don’t mind that I am getting a bread maker as a birthday pressie, I want one, and what better way to make sure I remember to...

“Fresh bread in the morning”

published 17/01/2011

ProFresh bread every day

Consnone so far

One of the best things about having a breadmaker is the smell of the fresh bread baking and the anticipation of opening it up to get a nice looking crusty loaf that always comes out right instead of the hit and miss loaves I make if I try and do it manually. I bought this Kenwood Breadmaker BM200...

“I've got a new one!”

ProLovely bread, gorgeous smell!

ConsTakes a bit of time

For my birthday I had a new breadmaker, yes I know I only had my other one for a couple of years but it had become unusable. I did have a Morphy Richards Essential Breadmaker at a cost of just £39.99 from Sainsbury’s. Well I got what I paid for. It worked well at first but after a while the bread...

Prosmells wonderful,bakes the perfect loaf

Consa bit noisy for the bedroom

First of all, I have to confess that this op was prompted by Newfloridian's op on Dove Farm's organic bread flour, but, honestly, I have been meaning to write it for ages!! So, this is how I came to buy my bread maker. It was just before last Christmas and I was on the Atkins diet..... you know...

ProLovely fresh baked bread

Consnoisy

As I sit here writing this the delicious aroma of fresh baked bread fills my senses, my mouth is watering at the thought of eating it still slightly warm with a thick spread of butter. I received the Kenwood Rapid Bake as a present about 2 years ago and it has given me many delicious loaves of...

ProFantastic fresh bread whenever you want

ConsQuite noisy, bread disappears too rapidly

I lived in America for two years and had a breadmaker over there - primarily because I didn't like the texture of the US bread and I could control that and the ingredients that went into it by making my own. This was an Oster (Sunbeam) machine and it finally gave up the ghost four years after my...

ConsI can't stop eating the bread I make

I have problems with shop bought bread. It never tastes how bread is supposed to taste. I walk round supermarkets and the other shops you can buy fresh baked bread from and the loaves look tempting and ever so impressive and I've rushed home armed with butter and jam only to be disappointed at...

“Lovely bread.”

published 21/01/2008

ProEasy with great results.

ConsTakes up a bit of space.

I got this from my step daughter when she decided just to hand bake her bread instead. I had been wanting to make my own for ages, but I just don't have the time or the talent! This machine is fantastic. Its easy, you just put the liquid in the bottom, the flour on top of that, the other...

“OnThe Breadline”

published 14/09/2004

ProNever need to buy another soggy supermarket loaf!

ConsNeeds advance planning to get your bread in time

I've had a few breadmakers - including two of these (see below) but this is far and away the best I've used. The process is so simple, especially once you have settled on favourite recipes and favoured ingredients, that you can practically do it in your sleep. It only takes a few minutes to get...

ConsNoise

I bought my Kenwood breadmaker for my mum and dad as part of their Christmas. It was just an impulse buy, but I wasn't to realise just how often it was going to be used. Mum was absolutely delighted. So much so that Christmas dinner was postponed until she had made a brown loaf to go along with...

Proreally does make a professional loaf quickly

Consover-dosed on bread in first few days!

I was keen to get going and rushed to Tesco to buy all the essentials. The instructions were clear and easy. The section 'getting started' did just that. It was great when the bread turned out, looking, smelling and tasting like bread! There are lots of different recipes in the booklet I have now...

“Don't buy this breadmaker”

published 23/05/2003

ProHome baked bread is wonderful

ConsThe bread pan keeps buckling

I purchased this breadmaker at the end of June 2002. I was completely satisfied with it. I even invested in a cook book designed to help be get the best out of it. It worked fine until New years eve when the bread pan began to jump out of position, so disengaging the kneader. When I collected my...

ConsDisappointingly unreliable

I was given my first Kenwood breadmachine as a Christmas present which malfunctioned and ceased to work within a week. The replacement machine worked well and produced excellent results for six weeks when I noticed that the bread pan kept releasing itself during the kneading cycle. On inspection...
