    Bought one of these last time, a great machine for the money. Haven't eaten shop bread since :p

    You can check stock at your nearest Lidl by ringing their customer helpline 0870 444 1234. It is worth ringing them before you go to the store. Hope that helps. :)

    This forum goes crazy for Panasonic bread makers, so it may be worth investing more in one of those, when a deal pops up.

    However, if you're after one now on the cheap, this is a no-brainier.

    Yesterday saw few in East Ham Lidl.
    Technically its not so good deal as it seems - there are much better bread machines for not much higher price, but there is lot of much worse machines for much higher price as well. Machine is decent, but its not really bargain. The only thing which will make it worth and nice deal is 3 years warranty.

    I have one of these. They're not great for jam making as it doesn't get hot enough so doesn't set too well, but it sort of works.

    I make bread dough in mine then cook it in the oven after letting it rise even more, you can get huge loaves that way.

    Does anyone know how much power does it need to bake one bread?

    Does it really matter, when electricity is so cheap in the UK ? :)

    An expensive way to take up room in the corner cupboard.

    Dashed in on Thursday to get one to replace an old Prima model which gave uneven textures. Seems to knead the dough better than the Prima due to it having twin paddles. Made a crusty white loaf for the missus last night and she said it tasted wonderful. Got a Rye Bread loaf on the go at the moment. Wonderful smell permeating the house right now so can't wait to try it. So far so good with a 3 year warranty I can't complain at that price.

    It's rated at 850W. When they are in the baking phase, it is heating for about 50% of the time. Rest of the time, it is Kneading / Resting / Rising and not using a lot. So I would guess total power would be:-

    approx 175Whr Kneading / Resting / Rising - 2-3 hrs
    approx 425Whr Baking - 1hr

    So about 600Whr total or 0.6 units or about 9p assuming your unit cost is 15p

    Not very useful comment, what are the technical differences? They have exactly the same functions, the same basic design, the same principles. The only differences are the badge on top. The 3 years warranty is extremely important. And why isn't this a bargain? Is there any other bread maker on the market that is cheaper? Let alone the quality (which is not bad, most things from Lidl/Aldi are decent quality) and 3 years warranty.

    I agree with MaximusRo - I can't find anything else anywhere near the price that has the twin paddles (for larger loaf) and 3 year warranty. Got the last one in Great Torrington - excellent value at £35.

    Twin paddle machines are very hard to get hold of and they are usually very expensive. They tend to knead better and they make a 'traditional shaped' loaf, rather than the tall thin loaves that single paddle machines make.

    I've read the reviews at the review centre for this machine and two people say that the programming allows you to remove the paddles before the final rise - which is another plus.

    I shall be buying one of these this afternoon - heat added :)
