This compact breadmaker from Morphy Richards bakes excellent bread and comes with a couple of handy features that make it easy to use.

The kneading paddle collapses when the kneading cycle finishes and there's also a handy timer that you can set up to 13 hours in advance. You can make bread using the standard 180-minute program or you can use the timer to bake your bread while you sleep.

White bread produced on the standard program has an airy texture, strong bread smell and sweet taste. And when the timer is used, the bread still looks appetising and is firm and tasty. Wholemeal bread rises well and is sweet tasting and nutty, and easy-to-use bread mixes work well too. Light, medium or dark crust settings are available and you can bake small or large loaves.

If you have a sweet tooth, you'll be able to make some jam for your freshly baked bread. And the Morphy Richards also bakes lovely cakes. The instruction booklet features recipes for 27 different loaves, fruit loaves, cakes and jam, including two gluten-free loaves.

The machine's easy to set, load and keep clean. Sadly, there's no rapid-bake setting to quickly whip up a loaf for you. The 48248 is the graphite version of the 48245.

Pros: Excellent white and wholemeal bread, excellent jam, easy to use and keep clean.

Cons: No rapid-bake program

I got this for £36 from Debenhams delivered last week - on site at £40 but used a 10% discount code and free delivery SHA1 (always seems to work!) - even without discount, would be cheaper to have delivered from Debenhams

is it any good?

I have this, its not great compared to the pricey kenwood offerings... the crust always seems a bit too crunchy and it doesn't toast very well.

I forgot to mention quidco in the original post too - which I am fairly sure would extend the lead of debenhams.

So my original deal only remains good as somewhere to pick up immediately, or if adding the warranty.

Have some rep.

Reading through all the reviews - the other Morphy Richard ones seem to have problems with the paddle ending up in the loaf.

There is also another from Argos - which gets OK reviews - and is under £30 looking like a dalek in its infancy.

Also the one they claim makes the best tasting bread the Breville BR11 (listed here as the Antony Worrall Thompson Breadmaker. 050/3703) - but costs about a ton - can be bought for £80 from littlewoods so £50 if there is currently a £30 off voucher you are willing to take a risk with,

I have had this breadmaker for a month now and use it almost every day (got it from Debenhams for £40). It does a good job with baking the bread and I am very happy with it.

I agree with Ibiza with regards to the paddle ending up in the loaf. It happens every time, but it is easy to remove the paddle from the loaf.

As far a breadmakers go, Panasonic seems to be the best. Costs more, but generally felt to be worth it.
#10
Went with the cheaper cookworks, as it is better for the money.
#11
Can this one prepare the dough for making homemade pizza?
#12
RRP seemed a bit high for what you get but good discount price. i decided to go for the panasonic sd255 though as it can automatically add ingredients for you and it has a rapid mode (2hr for a basic loaf)

Yeah you can prepare pizza dough with this breadmaker. Planning on trying it out this weekend.

i have to agree with that, i have had a morphy richards and the anthony whatever thompson one listed above and have now got a panasonic sd-252 and it knocks the socks off both of them for quality of baking. The morphy richards motor was very poor and often stuck, the awt one was a bit better but eventually the spindle got worn and fluid leaked through so you had to be quick at getting the flour in but it made ok bread but not great as the padel used to rip the **** out of the loaf all the time, so most of the time i used it to make the dough then just stone baked it in a normal oven. But the panasonic makes lovely bread from start to finish every time, be it plain white or wholemeal it does it all, granted it takes and extra hour to make but it is worth the wait. The plus for the panasonic is you can get spares for them no problem.
So my advice to anyone thinking of a breadmaker is to buy a panasonic then at least you will use it and not just give up and leave it sitting in a cupboard somewhere
#15
I have a previous version and found that no matter what settings I used the crusts were not crusty but just a hard shell on the outside of the bread. After many attempts I consigned it to the loft and there it has been ever since.

I voted cold, this is the second deal voted hot just based on argos half price marketing. Just like that stupid £40 kettle which was cheaper in tesco and not even on offer.

A 2 second google search showed it is £45 from additions direct

http://www.additionsdirect.co.uk/rf/add/p.do/appliances/breadmakers/kitchen-electricals/morphy-richards/48248-compact-breadmaker?A=5796022425667697339015

And there seems to be a new code every few days for them.

Even if this is the cheapest place you can get this breadmaker this was never ever worth nearly £100

Could someone give us an idea of costs for baking various breads? Thanks

bag of flour (1.5kg enough for 3 large loafs)= 45p to £1 (or more if you go for organic this and that)
yeast/sugar/salt/milk powder/butter or oil not worth counting each time but i guess maybe 5p worth per loaf
electricity? well a 550watt usage for 30 to 45 minutes baking cycle, mixing and dough making uses hardly any power
handy forum for some tips http://forum.sausagemaking.org/
yes i know it is a sausage making forum but it has a good little bread section

home made bread tastes awesome, not going back to that chemical stuff they sell at the supermarkets.
#21
I ordered this from littlewoods direct last week and got £10 off first order and quidco so I think it ended up costing £34 having said that it hasnt arrived yet but they did say delivery by may 7th, wish Id have waited and got it from argos now, but last week it was £48 in argos so a big difference.
I really hope this is going to be good as the reviews on amazon were quite good, except for the paddle getting stuck.
Antone no what the texture of the bread is like ?,or does this depend on ingredients used, never had a breadmaker before, went for this cause it looks good!!!
#22
From the great advise here I would agree with those who said the panasonic is the best one -

we bought it - it was more expensive (60-70) , but it makes great bread - absolutey no problems - very easy to use and clean and the bread ( white /wholemeal) comes out amazingly - but you must use the best strong bread flour ( hovis/. allisons) , fast acting yeast ( hovis) , and there is even a fast option !!!!
The pizza crust dough you can make is so good for home made pizza ( we bought italian strong white flour - and yes it does make a difference)
Thanks to all who reccd this panasonic breadmaker - it's been the best 60 quid we've spent !

Funnily no Panasonics made it onto the Which? best buys list. But the comments people added to the product reviews showed massive support for Panasonic. Also there was no mention of stuck paddles in the Which review, but most people who owned it, posted that it was a problem.

Yes - it seems you can use them for making lots of things - pizza bases and even jam in some cases.

What you say is largely backed up in the Which? forum too - where Panasonic, despite getting no best buys, was highly praised by readers.

Recycle - Ebay or a charity shop. It will be of use to someone.

Thanks - I had been wondering this too. Have some rep.

My interest was prompted by the smell from a friends breadmaker (the £30 cookworks one) which they said they found it to work only about 50% of the time and were thinking about "reading the instructions". :-D

So look at a potential saving on airfresheners too.

Yes - as I said above what you say is matching the Which? readers comments.
