King of breadmakers.

Got mine for 60quid a few years back and it's still going strong

If you're after a bread maker, grab this one quick. Every loaf perfect. Highly recommend it.

Price matched Tesco(after code)

How much does a loaf cost roughly to make in one of these (materials etc)

Anyone know the differnce between this and the SD-2501 for £30 extra?

​I did the calculations 16 months ago, it works out between 40p and 50p depend on the quality of the ingredients.

Prime, cold.

can you make sourdough bread with this?

Prime, cold.



​you can get prime free for a month with any email address as longes it wasnt used b4

Had my panny sd257 for about 5 years and make about 3 loaves a week @ 50p a time
prefect bread (real bread) every time.
flour from lidl @0.75p does 3 loaves

this is the best brand of breadmaker.

you can use these just to make dough, e.g. for pizzas.

be warned you can put some weight on after buying one.

Thanks, if that is all that is missing, then very tempted. I guess you could simply add any extras at the appropriate time.

These are great machines, the nut / raisin dispenser is not worth the extra cost. Jump in!

Use your loaf , just buy bread

Such a compelling argument you've put across, thanks. I haven't bought a loaf of bread since I got my panny breadmaker for £15 from a BHF charity shop, and that was 2 or 3 years ago. Also make homemade pizza every saturday, yum

Do you use the pizza dough recipe in the manual or another one?

Oh yeah, pizza dough also. I have one of those Ferrari pizza ovens, so this would be perfect. How long does it need to make the dough? Just wondering what the running costs are.

Had one for years...best thing since (un)sliced bread! My kids won't eat normal bread crusts, but they fight for the crust of the loaves this thing makes!

Got the SD-2511W the other day for £95 and can confirm that it's not worth the extra. Unless you want to use it for sourdough starters or as has been said, dropping bits of stuff in automatically rather than doing it yourself at the beep.

Yes. I am gutted I didn't wait for this (and wasn't telepathic).

It also makes fantastic gluten free bread

While I've no doubt the validity of this product, I'm certain that bread makers must be in the all time top 5 purchase, one hit wonders, alongside exercise bikes, smoothie makers, weights benches and smart watches.

Ordered. Also ordered some Doves gluten-free flour and Doves quick yeast.

Cheers op, great find.

Thinking about buying one.
What do you do about yeast?

As these offers are usually limited in time or numbers. Can I just ask before im temoted into an impulse buy (yet again on HUKD)

In the past the bread maker along with the electric tin opener, smoothy maker and food processor, have always had flack as a one use item and then store away!

What is the key advantage of having your own bread maker?

Does it work out cheaper in the long run to make your own? How much does a normal loaf cost to make?
Does the bread last longer?
Taste nicer?
Or are they just for people who like to experiment with breads? (ohh dice some jalapenoes....jalapeno bread)

I like tecnology and have most of the living room items and now seem drawn to kitchen gadgets. Just wondered quickly what people think now a days about the bread maker and WHY, they buy them and continue to use them?

Hopefully someone has some time to answer and if theres some good plus points I can order one ans then start asking the questions like.......What else should I buy at the same time that would be useful? Can I set a timer for it to start cooking and finish when I get home from work? Whats the best/cheapest flour/yeast to buy etc?

Big thanks in advance to anyone who has a bit of time to answer my questions. Off to sleep now so hopefully wake to some answers and also stock (if im still tempted)

I haven't got one, but I know people who have, and have done extensive research. So, here goes:

1 - Fresh bread whenever you want it. Plus, you know exactly what is in it. For me, also, pizza dough to save me getting flour all over the kitchen
2 - Apparently, approx. 40 pence per loaf.
3 - No. Typically 2 - 3 days tops. But, I consider that good. Makes you wonder what crap they put in supermarket bread.
4 - From everyone I have spoken to, an overwhelming yes.

The bread tastes much nicer than sliced loaves, yet works out cheaper than all but the most cheap and manky of supermarket own-brand loaves.

I think I worked out it cost me 40 - 50p a large loaf , excluding the initial cost of my breadmaker. Main costs 600g of flour, about 4g of yeast from a 100g tub, & 1/3 of a unit of electricity for my lidl one.

The bread doesn't keep, but I now slice it up and keep it in the freezer and nuke or allow to melt slices as I need them - I finally found a use for the electric carving knife.

Typically you can set a delay timer for the number of hours when the loaf will be ready to remove, and they keep the bread hot for an hour after it has finished to give you time to take it out of the tin, so the crust doesn't go soft.

Yes you can. I haven't yet but according to the recipe it's made in 2 stages. 1. Make the sourdough starter. 2. Making dough.
It also makes cakes, jams, compotes and every bread you can think of.

I have the one with the dispenser and I've never used it. I just through in sesame seeds during baking process.

Everyone bread maker i've seen has made half size dense damp loaves that taste worse than store bought. They all have what i can only describe as a 'yeasty' taste, oh and they lack the added vitamins of store bought too, so they are less healthy. Before anyone says it, its not just my loaves, ive tried breads from many others over the years, all of which were the same.

So, I decided to make my own bread the proper manual way, after several attempts i perfected it, it was a large lovely fluffy loaf like a real bakery loaf, but i still couldn't get rid of that god damn awful homemade 'yeasty' taste. I tried all sorts to get rid of it, timings/temperatures i even tried fresh yeast from the baker. I can only assume professionals use some type of conditioner/improve to get rid of the taste. Any bakers who read this, id please like to know how fresh bakery bread neutralize the homemade taste im alluding to. TY

I would recommend this. my favourite feature I'd the bread making. the bread making is automatic.

I've got the one with the seed dispenser and have also never used that function. I usually add seeds when putting the mix in, so they go all through the loaf. Sometimes I add poppy seeds at rise stage before bake starts, but I find that damping the top of the dough helps them stick so prefer to do it manually.

That pizza picture looks amazing!
