Why so cold? Where can you buy a large breadmaker any cheaper?

I used to have one of these, not as great as you'd think, for a start it leaves the dough hooks in the bread so messes up the loaf. Does taste quite nice though. I don't think it is a massively efficient way of making bread though

I'd say get down to ASDA get a couple of the Lurpack packs with a free bread tin and make it the old fashioned way

Calm down, breadmaker from Argos is two times cheaper and bakes bread, small and medium (do not all need big!). Maybe there are those who prefer cheaper Mini than the more expensive Rolls Royce.
Maybe that's why the majority voted cold? Accept it ...

lol, no I am calm, it's just that the one in Argos is from their "Value" range and to be fair no one is going to expect too much from that surely?

I can accept cold votes of course but this really is a good deal and if only a few people do take it up then it was worth posting.

If at least one person happy, it is always worth it. After all, thanks for posting (I forgot earlier) ;)

This looks like a great deal.

This is not your normal bread maker it has some great features:

-It has a large 2.75 pounds or 1.25kg capacity and does not produce the tall loaves that most bread makers produce.
-This is very unusual as it has two blades not one. This means the bread is more like a traditional loaf rather than the wall ones that most column design bread-makers produce.
-The unit also has a programme for Jam. I've used this programme and it is excellent, very precise temperature control with a last minute boil. Superb and no standing around mixing the jam, just drop in the ingredients and go! This is available on a number of bread makers including ones from Argos. An excellent feature.
-This unit also has a pasta dough program which is a first for me.
-The unit has a branded non stick coating on the blade and bowl unusual at this price point
The unit has a 3 year warrantee, again unusual at this price point

If you are not sure about this take the time to enter you post code and view the video on the direct link.

This is not the same as the lower priced entry level units it is a mid / high range bread maker (look at the capacity and features) at a very good price point.

Thanks to the OP. Good spot.

I have a Panasonic breadmaker and love it, but I like the loaf shape of these and also I'm going to make jam this year, so might give one of these a try, the price is right. If I don't like it I'll give to the old folks who love fresh bread.

From 7th April..I can see this getting more heat nearer availability

I can see the value in this evening if some can't. I may well get one, I fancy making my own jam to go on the bread I would make with it.

One thing I noticed is that (as with all things that involve a bread maker) I used very precise measurements for the Jam (I used the recipe from a pack of Jam Sugar, not the one in the brad maker cookbook - I was using fruit with low pectin) and compared to my stove top Jam the bread-maker Jam was very brightly coloured and glossy, the flavour was very good, and the texture firm.

It so quick! I think the machines stir the jam really well and the temperature control is computer controlled, this precision must be why the properties of the bread-maker jam are so good.

Also a lot of store jam is made with cheaper corn syrup (glucose-fructose) not pure sugar. I used a knob of butter to "clear" the Jam this forms a scum on the top of the Jam as it pulls out the impurities. You just scoop out and discard this as it forms in the mixing. I used fresh fruit for my Jams but you can use frozen also. I freeze fresh fruit that might otherwise go to waste and then use it in Jam / Sauces.

Just out of interest, roughly how much does it cost to bake a loaf of bread in these?

Well it depend where you get your ingredients... I've noticed that Bread flour is often sold a a premium I've see stuff in Waitrose (just flour!) for £3.99 a bag!

When I started I purchase all the brands from Waitrose, Sainsbury, Tesco, Asda and Lidl.

The best by far was the Lidl bread flour, also the cheapest well under £1 (69p from memory) most of the majors charge around £1.29 for their own brands and more for the expensive stuff.

A good source of hard low cost wholemeal wheat flour are the large bags sold for chapati. A word of warning though wholemeal bread is much harder to bake an get right than white, so if you are starting start with white Lidl bread flour.

The other big cost is yeast - Dont use dried use instant they are NOT the same the former needs activation before use in a breadmaker.

The power used by the machine is low even compare to heat a large over.

For regular white bread or a 50/50 mix of white and whole meal (that's what is in most brown bread) if you shop carefully the breadmaker is cheaper, well under 42p a loaf all in.

The difference for breads with sunflower seeds, nuts etc Speciality bread is huge as a sunflower or sesame loaf sells are a large premium for a few pence (or less!) of additional ingredients.

If you are starting buy a small packet of instant yeast (not dried yeast) open only what you need, and seal the unused yeast with an air tight clip and pop it into the freezer (it will keep longer).

The cheapest place to buy live yeast is a Polish deli one near me sells it for 29p a large bar. It it kept in the chiller section of the store and looks like butter in the wrapping!

The most common fault people make with breadmakers are

1) Using the wrong yeast like dried yeast not instant!
2) Using stale yeast that is out of date
3) Measuring without accurate scales these machines need the correct measurements
4) Throwing out the mixer blade with a loaf that did not rise! Remember to take it out
5) Cutting the bread with a bread knife and sawing through the mixer blade!! Take it out first.
6) Not closing the lid or putting the machine near the edge of a worktop so it falls off during the night!
7) Putting too much material into the machine! This unit has 2 blades amazing!!!

If you get it right it can be fun, low cost and a good options if you are not planning a trip to the supermarket.

I make French sticks, cakes and buns using the machine to mix up dough. (You need a special tray for the French sticks £11 ebay). Great for pizza and past. I also use if for gnocchi when we have too many potatoes in the house.

If you want to try bread-making without the machine try the no knead recipes these are the cheapest simplest recipes that need no special tools and the bread it produces blows the shop and machine bread out of the water!

There is not much work but you have to leave it 18-24hours. The best bread you've tasted and the recipe is simple!

I've had a look for a French Bread Tray/Tin but found nothing on eBay. I did find this though lol Item number: 360310249478

First loaf came out spot on, nice and fluffy with a nice crispy crust.

The recipe book only goes on about 1000g loaves though so I don't know how much of what I need to make a 1250g loaf.

Will be buying some strawberries soon and sugar jam to make some jam to spread on the lovely fresh bread :)

Got strawberry jam on the go now.

You have to look around as they are not always available. The one I got looks like this...

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Faringdon-Collection-Bakers-Pride-French/dp/B0000BVFCG

Before I got this I rolled the dough into a long loaf and then wrapped it in a floured tea towel (use material with no fluff, the linen type, NOT waffle weave! Or the cotton fluff will cover your bread!)

Then to get the shape I hung the bread in the towel on the outside of a drawer to rise. This gave it the nice round shape.

Then steam (splash water in hot oven or use a bowl in the oven) careful some oven crack / explode and electric oven obviously are not keen on water everywhere!! You need 40% humidity for 15 mins to get the crusty loaf. A good alternative is to brush the loaf with water!

Post some photos if you can!!

A friend purchased one for me as a present, bought it to Spain as cabin baggage.

Three minutes into a baking cycle, everything stopped. The fuse in the plug is in order and there is 220v supply.

Disappointed is a mild way of expressing thoughts at the moment.
I really do think Lidl should stick to general store things. A year ago I bought a Park High pressure washer, around £100, that had a working life of 7 hours.

No problems with mine. I've made around 20 or so loaves and 3 batches of strawberry jam which is loooovely :)
