Whilst instore at Asda today I noticed thye had reduced the cost of the Durabrand breadmaker to £11.99 from £29.99, the one they had on display was of very good quality, So I bought one, its currently making a loaf now. To say I am amazed at the quality and ease of use for £11.99 would be an understatement, you cant go wrong. Its white, digital touch control and even makes dough for pizas, bakes cakes etc. even upto a 2lb loaf.

My mum works on Asda CS desk and when I told her about the price she went out and bought one as she said when they first came in most of the staff bought them and are made up with them.

I also noticed they had reduced the cost of the 3 tier durabrand digital steamer to £6.00, again good quality.

The Morphy Richards Fast Bake looks exactly the same so have included that picture.

Definitely not a lot of dough for a bread maker! Hot vote:thumbsup:
#2
Crumbs, cheap as chips
#3
If you don't get the ingredients exactly right, you don't get anything remotely looking or tasting like real bread. More effort than you could imagine.

£11.99 is ok though for novelty value.

Far easier to buy a loaf.

Great price, but everyone I know who has one doesn't use it after a few times.

[SIZE=2]Am i the only one who finds the use of the word digital in the product name rather amusing?[/SIZE]

[SIZE=2]I'm wondering how much better digital bread would be as opposed to the boring old analogue stuff we have had to put up with before.*[/SIZE]

i borrowed a breadmaker from my mate recently... does anyone know if its possible to make bread like you buy in the shops instead of really heavy bread? maybe it was the type of flour i was using, but every loaf came out really stodgy, a bit like the consistency of malt loaf.

on the upside, i used it loads to make pizza dough, it was really good at doing that, and for £12, im going to go see if any nottingham stores have them in cheap just so i can make pizza dough easily :)

To make your bread lighter, use a little less flour and a little more yeast, you'll never make it like shop bought bread but with experimenation you can get close.

I bought a bread maker for about £100 a few years back.

I hardly use it, all the ingredients and effort required makes it cost more than a regular loaf and it doesn't even taste very good.



With respect, that's guff. I've costed my loaves thoroughly (by that I mean even down to including the leccy used!) and they average out at 35p! OK, you can get loaves at Netto for that price but if you are trying to tell me they taste anything like as good as bread from a breadmaker then you are crazy. Like has already been said, you MUST get the ingredients excatly as stated in the recipe book, including the exact weight etc. Do all that and you WILL get a brilliant loaf that tastes nfinitely better than even the £1+ loaves in the shops. I know I'm sad but I've also timed myself when inputting the ingredients and it takes no longer than 5 mins! I certainly couldn't get to the shop and back in that time.

PS £12 for a breadmaker is a steal!

Want to know the secret, well its not really a secret. Either buy yeast that has Vitamin C in it or get some vitamin C tablets and crush them up and put them in the mixture.

:thumbsup: I've not tried Digital bread, is it very bitty?

Excellent deal BTW repped

I have had the Morphy Richards equivelent since 2002 and it's been great, except for the fact that the paddle dropped out of the bottom of the tin twice!
I often make bread and the cost per (large) loaf I work out at 31p (lidl flour for breadmakers is great). My bread doesn't taste like shop bread, it's better! And with experience you don't have to measure your ingredients too carefully, I tend to just bung mine in, never a problem! Just make sure you use strong flour and the right type of yeast! Oh, and chuck in a few seeds (sunflower, poppy etc)
The best thing about having your own breadmaker is setting it up to bake overnight (on cheap electricity), the smell of freshly baked bread as you wake up.... yum!

shame you don't know me then Prissy!;-)

one particular recipe in the manual is for basic bread using oil instead of butter, it also mentioned using olive oil. Yesterday I had bought from asda olive oil with garlic flavour at 67p just for cooking so had a brain wave and used this instead, plus I also used the Hovis seeded bread flour and the taste and smell was out of this world, even the kids asked for more which is a first.

Also they do a olive oil with chilli flavour so use that add some dried chillis bit of grated cheese and near the end of baking sprinkle some cheese on the top.
#14
ok for everyone who has managed to get one of these or r tempting to get one i'm gonna start a new thread on misc boards where we can share our recipe ideas
#15
That is cheap and I know that my wife wants one but so many things we really need that I will wait for another deal after the summer.

Voted hot though :)

Well you do not make yours the same way as mine and you can get loaves for less than 35p, so that, makes your info guff. I have followed various recommended recipes and the bread is never as light as the ones you buy in the shops. However for £11.99 this is a great deal.



Fair enough, not worth discussing it any more. Yes, you are completely correct and I am completely wrong. Better now? :roll:
#17
Looks suspiciously like a Morphy Richards model my parents have.
#18
One big tip is don't just use it to do all the baking, use it as a dough maker. You can make really good rolls and bread in the oven and things like pizza or focaccia which are very easy and taste great. I may get this as my wife has almost broken our old one from using it so much.
#19
You can also make great cakes in them most breadmaker booklets have recipes - and you couldn't compare shop bought mass produced bread to breadmaker bread

I bought a bread maker last Christmas, used it once and have never touched it since.

But for £11.99 that is one helluva deal.
#21
Ok - all this talk of bread is making me hungry - but can anyone locate a store to get one?

none in Southamtpon or Reading

With respect, did you factor in the time taken to make this product including acquiring ingredients etc? Doubt it.

These things are pointless and I guarantee you will have it in the loft gathering dust within 2 weeks.

There's no way the bread produced is anywhere near the quality produced in a commercial oven.

so how do you make the digital chips? (though they are of course digit shaped! - oh I do crack myself up!)

As you have admitted you are wrong I see no need pursue this debate further. I accept your forthcoming apology :roll:



I apologise unreservedly. Have you taken your St Johns Wort today? :roll:

I believe it has already been established previously, people with your views have been proven to be absolutely correct beyond any reasonable doubt, so obviously I have totally changed my view on this and my 4 year old breadmaker has been taken off the kitchen side where it had been lying dormant for 2 hours and is now on ebay. Thank you for helping me see the light.

Absolutely not. And I'm giving you some desperately needed rep for your enlightening post. :whistling:

£11.99 is a good deal but this thing is destined to end up in the loft for all but a few of the very persistent lot. For the price it would make a good present for someone though.

Differing brands make different quality of loaves. You have to get the ingredients EXACTLY right or the results are disastrous. By the time you get a hang of it, (many, many attempts) your time energy and costs are already in arrears and makes the whole thing kind of pointless.

In fact if you want a really cheap home breadmaker, try kneading some dough, plonk it in a loaf tin and stick it in the oven. At least that works :thumbsup:
#31
You might get better bread from specialist bakers, but not in a supermarket. Even the recently cooked ones from Tesco/Sainsbury are nowhere near as nice as you can make in a home model - and I'm a terrible cook to boot.

However, the best thing is fresh bread in the morning, with the smell waking you up. Mrrrrm.
#32
is this online
sure i saw a good deal in woolworths
#33
to all those aspiring masterbakers
#34
another thing to consider is the money saved, how many times have you drove to the supermarket just to get bread and ended up with a couple of bags of needless shopping. I know we do, many times my wife has rung to ask if we need anything and if its just bread she comes back with stuff we didnt really need.
Also I am fed up with amount of bread we throw away because we didnt feel like any for a few days, when we did it was stale or mouldy at least now its made as and when we need it (no pun intended).

Oh maybe it was a fluke but this is the first time i have used one and the bread came out perfect so not bad for £11.99.


next thing now is a cheap cow!

This is patent nonsense! What's that old saying about it's a poor workman who blames his tools. Breadmakers are easy peasy to use successfully, my son made his first loaf (unaided) at the age of 7 and it was perfect so I'm not sure what that says about your skill levels here. This is now the second time on this thread you've told people a total untruth about breadmakers in order in some way to detract them from buying. Do you own a struggling bakery or summat? :whistling:

Hovis has gone far enough! The yeast you can do is say sorry flour those terrible jokes. Crumbs, lets stick to the topic - they dough like it when don't! :p

Nice one young man !!!!

Wife bought both to replace the ones she had which she said were becoming used looking ????

Anyhow, cheap price to pay for keepin her happy !!!

I got a Panasonic breadmaker for £100 about 18 months ago and use it regularly. It takes less than 5 minutes to prepare a loaf and makes no mess at all. You can buy nasty loaves of bread for under 50p, but make it yourself and you know precisely what went into it and it's guaranteed to be fresh.

It helps if you have some decent electronic scales to measure the ingredients accurately to get the best results.

Seems like you're the one with the family bakery, I guess you must be the masterbaker ?????.....I did spell that right didn't I ?

Not a lot more for me to say, one glance at some of your posts on this thread already is quite evident that you are baking on half a loaf compared to some:whistling:
