I’m really happy with the bread,but I’m over the big hole in the bottom of loaf caused by the mixing paddle. Sometimes the paddle stays in the loaf and you have to pry it out.but the worst is when it stays in machine and a big clump of bread stays with it
Very good quality machine
I went through a number of cheap bread making machines and none survived past one year, all leaked water from the bread pan bottom paddle. The Breville BBM100 is the first machine to last more than 4 years and I use it regularly to make crusty white loafs. I use this machine mostly to make Pizza Dough or Bread Dough and then bake the bread in a regular oven and sometimes when I don't have time I bake a complete bread loaf. Like all bread machines they tend to bake uneven crust (lighter crust on the top) and leaves a hole in the bottom (paddle does not fold in this model). Although this machine is not perfect it makes a decent bread loaf . Very happy with this machine great value for money.
I’ve had fun!
My first loaf was a disaster (should have measured the yeast accurately!) but my second was a triumph! Using the good commercial bread mixes available anywhere, I’ve been producing all sorts of really tasty loaves. Adding grated cheese, cooked chopped bacon and a few herbs makes a delicious cheese and bacon loaf. And a few tablespoons of assorted grains and seeds produces yummy bread which my family actually asks for. Using the timer means your hot bread is ready when you want it. I’m now baking bread more often than I’m buying it. And it’s fun.

Have made a few. Seems to work ok. Some flour left at the sides. Wish there was a seperate timers for 750g bread size. Has lots of features though. Medium crust is best

A good but basic machine
There are no bells and whistles on this machine, but it works. For all home bread-makers be prepared to jiggle the recipe and take the time to understand what each ingredient does otherwise the loaf may overflow or conversely, be as heavy as a lump of lead - if you get either fault the cause is your technique, recipe and/or ingredients; not the machine - you should use a quality bread-making flour and fresh yeast.
I generally make a very low salt fruit loaf - less than 20% of the normal Na content. After experimenting with several recipes I consistently get a beautifully textured loaf every time.
Doesn't cook properly
Have had a BBM100 for at least 10 years and have never been able to cook a decent loaf. Always comes out doughy and pale. Follow recipe exactly but makes no difference. Out of warranty now but would appeciate some advice to get lovely white bread everyone else is raving about. Purchase date is estimated.

More than just bread
You can make bread, cakes, pizza dough...the list is endless. This have been such a delight to use and very fun going through the recipes in their recipe book which has usually resulted in good results. The only downside is probably it's bulky size and sometimes is a bit difficult to clean.

I am very happy with my machine, its easy to use & turned out a beautiful loaf of bread. I normally make my bread by hand but cannot do that anymore due to RSI. This little machine handled my recipe fantastic & the smell through my house was devine! My tips are to put a small amount of oil in the pan & around blade to stop it sticking, use a good strong bread flour & bread improver but most important is measure everything.
Breville The Baker's Oven BBM100
Bough a seconds at the Tingalpa outlet in November 2018, the first use smelled to burned PVC cable covering, the bread was OK. The second one and the others started to come out each time smaller and raw. Brought it to the store to be checked out, 2-3 days later they did nothing, I went there again and the machine was at a table, I claimed and after talked for a while to the person in charge telling him that we used the same recepy for decades, did everythging as usual, the bread was raw and did not cook well. After a while we were given anot...her seconds. First bake....great, as the second third and so on till the 10th or 12th when the bread started to come out smaller and smaller and raw, the last time the same as the previous one machine. Never buy anything else there.
Great Basic Machine.
I have had four of these machines. ( left one behind when I divorced ). I still have three, one at home, one in my caravan and one at my shack. I've never had any issue with them wandering or moving on the bench, if this is a problem for you put a rubber drawer liner mat under it. I use digital scales to add ingredients, and the water ( 1 ml weighs 1 gram). ACCURATE MEASURING IS ESSENTIAL , even a few grams up or down makes a difference. Zero the scales between each ingredient. My bread doesn't hit the lid, except when I am baking in the carava...n as I don't have digital scales in the van, and cant get the measures quite as exact. Makes brilliant pizza dough. I use Laucke's premixes, and I make my own sourdough, from a starter. I use dried yeast and FRESH dried yeast is essential, once opened the yeast will begin to deteriorate. If you've had dried yeast opened for 6 months or more replace it. All my machines are at least 5 years old, still working perfectly.

I have used my Baker's Oven for 8 years and have worn it out making everything - bread buns, pizza base, you name it, I came on line looking for a replacement.
I haven't had any failures using it and can only surmise that people who are rubbishing this great machine don't know what they are doing.
If the dough rises too high, try using less yeast; don't rely on the standard recipe to get it right, the liquid to dry ingredients ratio has to be right. If the dough is too wet it will stick to the side in one spot and not move. If it is too dry i...

Bought yesterday and baked our first loaf overnight. It was a French loaf using a pre mixed recipe and totally surprised at the result
The texture was great and yes there was a problem that the bread rose and had a wet patch as it hit the underside of the lid. SO.... we re read the manual....IMPORTANT. After reading the so called bad results on here if only people would re read the problems page and work out that YOU are the one putting in the ingredients they would see that the machine does as it is told and the only variations are done by y...
I am gf and need to make own bread. I would like Breville to get back to me
Easy to use yes, small and cheap but results are dreadful for gf bread. 10 months on i am frustrated and would not recommend this product for gf bread. Frequently collapsed bread on cooling after looking great initially. The gf recipes in book provided are really heavy and stodgy. No use of bread mixes covered in the research. PITY. Small paddle Seems to be an inefficient method of mixing. Dough ends up one end of pan. Design of breadmaker needs a lot of work to get my vote.
We’ve had this machine for one week and we’ve baked 4 glorious loaves. We’ve used the Laucke bread mix and added pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds when the machine beeps. Yum! It’s really simple to use and easy to clean. Love, love, love (oh and it was the cheapest machine we could find).
Noisy, moves and overflows
Tried three times to make basic 1kg loaf - machines moves around doing literally 360 degree spin back and forth on the bench, terribly noisy, overflows/sticks to the lid. I’m not trying a smaller size loaf - I bought it to do the 1kg so if it can’t do what I bought it to do I’m taking it straight back for a refund! So disappointed :(
I have had a Breville bread maker before and we trashed it as the settings menu wore off after 3 years lol. Ok I bought this unit at a local Betta Electrical Store and it was far better than the previous unit I owned. Absolutely love it and for a simple bread maker I highly recommend it. I used to use a mixer with a dough hook, this unit is fantastic. Mine is a 1kg unit and I cannot fault it. I used it for dough mixing and even the Sour Dough mix I purchases from woollies turned out well.

Not a Baker's Delight
There’s nothing more impressive and sure to generate accolades and admiration from your guests than serving them home-made bread. Sadly, this is something you're unlikely to experience with this bread maker. After spending a fortune on different bread mixes without success, I consulted Breville for advice and was told the answer lay in the volume of water I used. However, despite using the exact same ingredients, the volume of water that works well when baking one loaf, fails to do so with the next. In the end I’ve had to resort to start baking with the machine and then transferring the loaf to the oven. To top that off the handle on the baking tin has broken off. Save yourself the trouble and frustration and give this product a wide berth.
Awesome litle unit
This is brilliant. It makes great bread and pizza dough. It is easy to use and has been very consistent in the short time we've had it. They are great value as you would expect from a Breville product. The kids love it and have made some very creative tastes. Great recipe booklet. Well worth it.
Great little helper
We received this for Xmas as husband has been wanting one to bake his own bread. I have to admit the instructions was clear to follow and almost fool proof, consistent performance on the result, perfect loaf from first time. But we have only tried white loaf so far and I was going to try the whole meal next. 1kg white loaf raise too high and stick on glass, though can be resolved by adding a piece of baking paper on top to stop the sticking. So far so happy.

Questions & Answers
Wholemeal spelt bread doesn't rise in the middle. I've been very careful with weighing quantities (except water in mls) but should I be using 1tsp = 5gm and 1tbl = 15gm?

Why is it so difficult to get a loaf of bread out of my Breville Baker’s Oven?
The kneading blade gets stuck in the bread and causes a massive hole in the bread.
