is it any good guys and girls? I didn't find the single amazon review very helpful

Seems like a very good price but I don't know how good this breadmaker is. I have to say I like the fact that the loaves are a traditional (long) shape. I have a Panasonic SD254 btw. I can highly recommend it, extremely happy with it.

I hope your avatar is an actual shot of beans on the toasted bread made by your machine;-)

So Beanz, is it worth the hassle to buy a bread machine and does it save you money.
How long do the loaves last?

Definitely worth the hassle! Bread tastes soooo nice and you wake up to the smell of freshly baked bread! The bread keeps about 2 days when stored properly (although I've never had them last longer than a few hours in my house!). Cost of a granary bread: about 60p. White bread: 30p or so. If you're very lazy you can buy the ready-mixes which work out to be slightly more expensive. But even if you make your bread with your own ingredients it should take you no more than 2 minutes. Try it! But don't go for the really cheap machines (you know, the £19.99 ones etc) as they are supposed to be pants.

I picked up the Panasonic 254 for £40 from Amazon after a tipoff from this site. It's every bit as good as everyone says. There are drawbacks however... I am now so fat I can't get out of the kitchen.
#12
How easy is it to make the bread? I mean by that does it come with instructions on making it? Are the ingredients easily added? How long does it take from start to finish?
Quite fancy one but don't want to be faffing about for hours just to end up with something I coulda paid 30p/£1 for. ;-)
#13
does this one kneed the dough? ie does it make the dough ???
#14
I bought one but it ended up going back, i found the bread was no good after a day and i was not using it that quick, i only use about a loaf a week, if you have a houseful may be more worthwhile, its very easy, just measure out the ingredient's, throw them in the pan and hit the setting, mine took about 3hr 30mins to produce a loaf.
you need to be very careful with the ingredients though otherwise you end up with a rubbish loaf.

also if you plan to put on timer you need to make sure the yeast dose'nt come in contact with the water obviously, instructions i got with mine were very good though.

you certainly cannot beat the taste of fresh bread though!

rudey

Yes.
#16
You can get loads of ready to go mixes from Tesco etc. for about 70p. Just chuck them in and add the warm water and hit go. 2 hours later fresh bread. Always impresses people and if you keep a few in the cupboard you've always got bread. I can recommend the cheese and onion and sun dried tomato flavours. Here's what's in my cupboard at the moment!

Yes, the machines come with recipes and even measuring spoons, but really, It is idiotically easy to make machine bread. The hardest part is measuring out the ingredients. Spoonful of bread-machine yeast at the bottom, 400g strong flour, spoonful of sugar, salt, 300 ml (?) water (the flour etc keeps the water from the yeast until the stirring starts). The Panny takes four hours (you have to allow some time for the dough to rise) plus however many hours you would like it to wait before starting (so you can set it to start at 3am and have a freshly baked loaf at 7am.) Setting all that up takes about three minutes.

That's a standard white loaf recipe. The texture of the finished product is similar but superior to a standard supermarket white loaf. The obvious advantage that it's waiting when you come down the stairs and you don't have to go to the shop in your pyjamas. (cue gags about shops in pyjamas etc) The Panny makes a loaf kind of taller than the trad loaf shape. It can be a b*gger getting them out of the baking tin as the stirring paddle will still be stuck in the bottom of the loaf, but a few sharp taps on the breadboard usually do the trick.

There are a million ways of varying the recipe. So far (only had mine a fortnight) I've done half and half with wholemeal, that worked out well. I used honey instead of sugar, so did that. I'm keen to try a coarser grain and have just bought some French Country Flour...

It's probably a bit cheaper than buying it at the supermarket, but it's the convenience that's the real advantage. And waking up to the smell of fresh bread, that's very nice.

Mmmmmmmm.................I'm really tempted now. I love GOOD bread. The Cheese and Onion would suit the kids.
Just don't want to buy something else thats going to lie in a cupboard unused after a couple of goes. ;-)
#19
got 4 kids and go through some bread :)
cheese and onion does sound :p
#20
glad to see that someone is using their loaf. ;-)
just purchased. thanks.
#21
Sounds like a good deal. My question is ..Could someone tell me whats involved in the cleanin after the making. This is always going to be the thing that stops me buying a new kitchen applience. I mean is it more trouble than its worth to clean?

Thanks
#22
I have owned one of these for 18 months and it is great. The bread of course does not last for days because there are no preservatives in the mix. The recipes that come with the machine are all healthy options. The results are so good that if you have a family the loaf will soon be consumed. You do have to get used to waiting for three hours, but once you get into the rhythym it is not a problem.

Since having this machine I have bough one loaf and a couple of part baked packs for Christmas. It also makes great Pizza dough. I would recommend buying decent bread flour., the only failure that I have had is when I used Asda'a own bread flour and it came out a sort of yellowy colour. Voted hot!

To clean it... you wash the bread tin ...end.

A couple of points that you might want to note are:
1: you do get a hole in the bottom of the loaf where the paddle fits
2. An electric knife makes a big difference, because some of the loafs are so light that they are difficult to cut ...well they are in my family because they tend to work there way to the middle having scrambled for the crusts.
#23
Agreed - can't beat the taste of freshly baked bread :)
#24
We wanna know how easy it is to clean?
Just like a deep fryer, how easy is that to clean.

I know just what you mean - I gave away an £80 juicer after one washing-up session too many, trying to get tiny bits of apple out of the tiny holes...

On the Panny at least, there is nothing to clean. Seriously, the whole thing bakes inside a non-stick tin, you tap the loaf out, it comes out clean. I did have to pick a tiny bit of crust off the base of the stirring paddle once - that was it.

I think the problem most people would have is finding room for one on their worktop. The SD 254 is at least eighteen inches tall - you can't just bung it in a cupboard like a food processor or whatever. It sits there all the time being beige. If you use it every day or every other day, no problem, but otherwise...
#26
I know this isn't a bread making advice line............but having had a morphy richards bread making machine for over five years, when it died from exhaustion my children bought me another one. I now have the panasonic 254 and the bread seems really dense, been using it since Christmas and I really haven't mastered it. Any suggestions?? :?

Saying that, I would recommend usinf a bread maker, no preservatives, freshly baked etc etc.

The lifetime of the bread depends a lot on its ingredients.
If you're only using flour, yeast, water and salt you turn out with something like french bread which does go stale fast.
Additional ingredients can increase the lifetime, throw in an egg or replace some of the water with milk or oil (there will probably be recipes for this with the machine) and it will last much longer.
Between this and my breadbin which pumps the air out of it and a loaf lasts a week for me.
#28
BarneyL, what breadbin is this that pumps out the air ?
#29
Anyone realized the price dropped?
#30
wow a whole 27p
#31
