But this is not a notch up from the 255, it is a replacement for the 254. Neither had or has a seed dispenser, which the 255 and now the 257 have.

TO CLARIFY THE MODELS.

SD254 and SD255 are no longer made. They are old stock. The SD255 was basically an SD254 with the seed/nut dispenser.

They were replayed by the SD256 and SD257 - the 257 being the one with the seed dispenser.

Including the likes of linseeds or hempseeds with the original bread ingredients seems to work fine with the SD256, without forking out the 40% more to have a timer to shove them in after the original kneeding.

I have had 3 breadmakers in the last 10 years, this one is by far the best - quiet, loaf turns out easily every time.......you really don't need to pay extra for the "ingredients adding" option, just make sure you are around at the time it states in the recipe, it beeps as well to remind you.

What's raisons?

That's a good offer. I got mine for over £100 2 years ago. Works great, makes beautiful bread every time and you get a book with recipes to make different varieties of bread and dough.

So you cant drop a loaf in the morning and it wont turn off auto for you?

You need to be there to make sure you turn it off? Why cant you just leave it in there?

How much does it cost to make a loaf ? like the bits and pieces?

Sorry about all the questions, but really interested, since I seen the gadj show

Excellent find as I was just about to go out get a 257 but thought I'd better check here first.

You can set a timer so that it's ready when you want it; leaving it in after this time is finished isn't a disaster but does risk overcooking and/or losing the crust crispness.
As for cost, Tesco bread flour is currently 50p for 1500g (3 loaves) and packets of yeast are around 9p (make those figures around £1.20 and 15p for brand names); add in the cost of milk powder (though personally I just replace a third of the water wih milk rather than buy the powder), a little salt & sugar and the electric and it probably comes to around 40p a loaf. As for flavour, I'd rather have a Sainsbury's Pain de Campagne or Morrison's Pave, but it easily beats the supermarket's "ordinary" white bread - had my Panny for years and am still using it.

Sorry, I wasn't comparing my SD255 to this one, just simply saying how good these breadmakers are :).

@canada16, just to answer some of your questions.

i. You normally just set the timer the night before, so the bread is ready when you wake up in the morning.
ii. Nope, as in point i, you just need to set the timer. Different type of bread will have different time required to bake, a normal white bread takes about 4 hours, so if you want it at 7am and you're off to bed at 10pm the night before, then set the timer for 9 hours, and it will be ready when you wake up :). No need to be there to turn it off.
iii. Doesn't cost that much to make a standard loaf of bread. We buy the Asda flour (50p for 1kg), we have used the Allison strong bread flour which cost as much as 4 times the Asda's (I think they have a promotion now for £1 for 1 kg), taste the same to me. Anyway, it takes about 400g of flour, with 15g of unsalted butter, teaspoon of yeast, salt and suger, add water, that's it. All in all, about 30pence (ish) per loaf.

As the OP said, it's not just works out cheaper, but knowing what you put in the bread is the best bit. We tend to go through 3 loaves each week, my girls do get fed up now and then and we would buy a loaf from supermarket, and you can certainly taste the difference.

Hope that helps.

So would you buy this or the gadget show sd-257? whats the difference, is it worth the price?

I tried to post this deal, but it told me it was a duplicate.

OK I bought, God I am a 33 year old male, in the prime of my life, out partying ect.. And I bought a bread maker. but for 62.00 and 30p a loaf, I cant resist, and I got kids and would be nice for them to eat fresh bread

Canadian flour gives the best results too

Canada. Just persevere with it mate.

Two years later and still going strong.

MOST times perfect bread but use the strongest flour you can get. Asda's own is good too.

A loaf will only last a day (or less if you have a houseful of pigs) because there are no preservatives.

Can I suggest anyone getting one of these - get to like bread pudding. A great side-effect.:)

The bread only lasts a day ? Not very good, I would have thought a few days at least?

Anyway of keeping it fresh for longer ? I wont use a loaf in a day

Banned

I have tried most bread mixes and found WRIGHTS to be by far the best albeit the most expensive so just wait till I see it on BOGOF and stock up

Best loaf I have ever tasted:-

Wright's Parmesan & Sun Dried Tomato Bread Mix (500g)

Lasts more than a day for sure.

I generally just slice it up once cooled and put half in an air tight container and put in a cupboard (light makes it go stale) and the rest in the freezer

NEVER put any bread in a fridge as it makes it go stale much quicker.

How come you've the time or energy to go out partying when you've got kids?! Just saying...;-)

Ha ha, I dont really go out an party that much, only when work goes out, which is about once every three months. Cant wait to start baking

Tomato and parmasian sounds nice csiman

Where on the Currys site do you enter the code? As this deal is for instore pick up only?

Thanks.

how are you all managing to get the code to go though as it says collection only?

Just before you pay, I got mine delivered.
and 5% topcashback which has tracked, quidco is only 3% I think

Voted Hot.

I have the older 255 model, it's a great piece of kit.

On a personal note I would never buy anything just because The Gadget Show recommends it, the show has gone way down hill since when it first came out. I just record it and fast forward 90% of the show as there is usually only about 5 minutes worth per show that is interesting. They are also very biased towards anything Apple releases.

1. A loaf lasts a few days.
2. It does turn off, after an hour on "keep warm" after baking is finnished.
3. I prefer to take it out as soon as baking is done. No reason, I just do.
4. Try the French setting. Takes 6 hours but well worth it. An ex has told me not to make her any more as she can't stop eating it. X)

I think the Op might mean it only lasts a day as it's so nice it gets scoffed!

Some good info there.

Praps thats where we are going wrong.?)

We just keep the opened loaf, sealed in plastic bag and then in an icecream container on the worktop.

there is no option for home delivery, how are you all making online orders?

I got mine delivered, but tons around the cardiff area to pick up for 69.99

can't enter the extra 10% off

Be aware that you shouldn't (or recommended) set a timer with diary or egg product, due to salmonella.

canada16 - Another great use I have found recently is making the fresh dough for our pizza, it mixes the dough for you, then you flatten it and place it on a greased baking tray for it to prove, then add your own toppings, superb pizza. Honest, you won't regret with this purchase, brilliant!!
