Found 19th Dec 2017
Just been looking to buy a breadmaker. This has very good reviews. The same model is on sale at Amazon for £114.95. So a bargain I think at £47.99 from Argos

Save a bit of dough on that one!
Even if you don't knead it

Great deal. I have a Breadmaker and it’s a great asset in the kitchen. Nothing quite like the smell of fresh bread baking! Thanks for posting!
I came here to make a "best thing since sliced sliced bread" joke.

But I see I've been beaten to the bread jokes by 4m.

You heard it here first folks.

Not just sliced bread.

But sliced, sliced bread.
Does anyone know if you can bake gluten free bread in these machines? Thanks 😊
I would like a new bread maker, thank you

don't kneed this
What’s with the stupid comments... we donut need them!
How does this compare to the previous bread maker that went hot a month back?

Edit: looks like the same model just a bit more expensive.

Great deal! I've had one of these for a good few years and it's great. We use ours mainly for pizza dough but it also makes great jams and chutneys
Have the Cookworks version of this (identical except for brand logo). It is 12 years old if my memory serves me right. Have just replaced the toothed belt and is still going strong. It has been used once or twice a week.

Mainly use for the lazy dough setting, knock back, re-prove then bake in the oven in a 2lb loaf tin or baguette tray or roll out for pizzas.

Don't do it. Get a panasonic.
I love my breadmaker. Genuinely use it every weekend. Friday night the first thing I do is put a loaf in.

I've got the stainless steel panasonic, don't have the model details to hand, but it is cracking.

Couple of tips:
Get one with a tray where you can load fruit / nuts etc to drop on a timer instead of adding manually, and the next tip I cannot recommend enough:

GET A BREAD SLICER / Meat / Food slicer to go with it, and use it. I have this one:

amazon.co.uk/rit…cer

Honestly, the difference between using this and a bread knife is like night and day.

If I was using a breadknife, I'dve given up on a bread machine by now..

I gotta ask why you think a slicer is so important?

Sure. You're going to get much much better, slices of bread which are "usable" in many different ways - sandwiches, toast, on the dinner table etc.

You'll get many more slices out of the loaf. The slices that you do get will hold together much better, particularly when making new breads / recipes which contain fruit, nuts, etc..

Using a breadknife quickly gets tired, there is mess everywhere, and you end up with just a few "doorstep" slices of varying thickness, usually with jagged edges.

The slicer is very fast - from taking it out of the cupboard to a bagged sliced loaf and back in the cupboard with mess cleaned up is around 5 minutes. You can choose the thickness of slices on the fly, so you could have 5 thin slices for sandwiches, then rotate the dial and 3 or 4 large thick doorstep slices for toast.

Yes, if you really concentrate, you might get 3 or 4 slices in a row of acceptable quality using a knife, but I wouldn't go back to it now.

I see, do you know if These cheaper slicers are any good?

Ah ok. I know the Ritters and similar cost a few quid, well the slicer is almost double the cost of bread machine, so it's a valid question certainly.

Ive not used the one your email looking at, but I'd definitely take a punt on it for £3.68.

It's obviously a different animal to the Ritter. I'd recommend thinking about one of those at some point if you enjoy making the loaves, but I'd certainly try the one you found first.
