Very Useful item
I can make my own bread, Pizza Doughs, Jam, Marmalade, in many varieties of my own choice. I believe Bread makers are very useful when you live at home.I still use Breville recipes in my Sunbeam bread maker, for I believe they work better.
Purchased in May 2007 at Harvey Norman Retail Stores for $349.00.

It's does GREAT breads...but one small flaw
So this is probably the best breads I've seen come out of one of these machines. It is VERY uniform and tastes fantastic...however, during the kneading process, if you don't get your dough perfect (and I've followed the recipe in the instruction book to a T), the motor will make a grinding noise. It's not the end of the world but it sure does make you think about your dough a bit more. Having said that I've had it for a few months now and it's still going strong. You can see the results of me cutting a loaf here:

Love love love my bread maker. It is SO easy to use. I love all the different options to personalise the loaves. My one complaint is with the collapsible dough hook. Mine seized up very early on, unfortunately. I'd rather have a hole in the bottom of the loaf then have to purchase new dough hooks every time they break. I'd still probably buy this again, despite this issue!
Well made machine that almost gets it right.
The "modify" function involves replacing the whole program not just modifying the section that needs changing, and trust me they need changing. So you need to write down or remember ever step so you can improve it for next time. If you notice the dough is mixed early, you can't end the mixing cycle early and move on. Or visa versa you can't mix it longer if it's not quite ready. You have to note it down and reprogram the whole recipe for next time.
No steam feature leaves it dry when proofing so ...

Sticking, hard to move collapsible paddle
I make bread almost every day. I have always cleaned the paddle with a toothbrush to remove all bread I could see. It eventually became very stiff. The only way I resolved this was by unscrewing the 1.5mm hex screw on the paddle end manually cleaning the bar and the hole it went into. Now it’s as good as new again

Not only wonderful bread .... pizza, pasta and more
Four years of excessive use and it produces the best bread, pizza dough and pasta dough. Works well and only recently commenced making an occasional loud clunking noise with initial settings, but the machine continues through all of its stages without fault. When I offer to bring something to family for dinner, they always ask me to make bread.
My poor bread machine
I love my bread machine,use it twice a week for the last four years, no problems. Just recently the bread has been coming out like it was punched and twisted before it was cooked. It is awful, its tough and hard and I can't even use it for breadcrumbs.So I stood and watched it and found that it was kneading again half way through the baking process,which explained the horrible bread. Any ideas, can it be fixed?
I too have had problems with the collapsible paddle seizing up. My solution is to boil the paddle for 10 minutes with 1 tbsp of white vinegar and 1 tsp of bicarb and water just to cover. I use this machine at least 3 times a week and not had any other problems.
Never have to buy Bread again
I have had my Breville Bread maker for two months now and I absolutely love it. I make
4-5 loaves a week and have also tried brioche which was delicious. The only thing I have a problem with is the bread has a hole on the bottom where the paddle is. So I presume the paddle doesn't collapse at the end of mixing.
I love to wake up to the smell of fresh bread.
Performance of my BBM600
I used this machine for over 4 years without failure making 5 loafs a week with not a problem at all.
The folding paddle is cleaned and washed with a tooth brush and warm water this works well for me
Yes indeed it shows wear and tear so does a new car, if you don't like make your bread in the oven.
Great Machines needs improving
I am happy with this Machine. The 3 faults it does have 1.The paddle go so hard its hard to use. 2. Wash mine very careful but the pan is starting to peel, I have 2 of them and both the same. 3. Do not wash the bottom of the pan in water that rust after awhile, nor do I set for hours in advance as the water starts to go through the bottom. Remember most things are made in china now days. If breville were to improve on that I believe they would have the best machine on the market.
Great, except for the collapsible paddle
I have had my BBM800 breadmaker for less than two years, so still under warranty. It makes great bread, my only complaint is that the collapsible paddle has not worked for some time now. It is stuck in the upright position, and I can not move it at all. Breville tells me that it is not covered under warranty, because it is a 'consumable' (read the small print on the warranty page) By the definition of consumable in my dictionary, this item does not fall into that category! If the paddle is not covered by warranty, surely that can be written in the instruction book, and we would all be clear. The price of a new paddle is about $15, but that is not the point, and I agree that Breville's after sales service is not good!
Breville Bread Maker BBM800 Can somebody help please
Today I attempted to make my first loaf of bread.
Have the same issue as Daniel mentioned. The collapsible paddle won’t stay upright. Surely I don’t have to pack ingredients around the paddle to keep it upright. I’m also wondering how the machine will manage to keep the paddle upright and then flip it down when necessary during the baking process.
I’m not baking my first loaf today, will throw ingredients out until this issue is resolved.
Can anyway help. Please.
Best bread maker I have used but does not last
We have had this bread maker for nearly two years only and we use it constantly but is is now having serious trouble. At first it worked perfectly but now it is making some really loud noises and is not cooking the bread as well as it did originally. We find it best to start the cycle with the stirring arm in the upright position or otherwise it does not mix the bread as it does not stand up on the correct cycle during kneading. At the end of the third kneading we remove the Kneading stirring arm to avoid the bread being damaged. I expect and expensive bread maker like this to last longer than 2 years.........
Settings can be set up to your requirements, not fully Auto
Does not last
So far so good. It makes bread.
Not sure if anyone else has noticed this, but water interacting with the stainless steel causes streaking very easily.
I found some recipes make the bread too dry. The cheaper model below this one has recipes that are not included in the premium model for some reason.
Almost every loaf I have made so far has been lopsided when I am pretty sure done everything exactly as recipe says to do.
I wish the loaf pan & paddles were dishwasher safe.
Reliable. Good looking.
Water causes streak marks easily. Expensive. Not dishwasher safe. Recipe book errors & lack of recipes. Lopsided loafs.

A couple of design flaws but Gluten Free Success!!!
We bought a bread maker as I can't eat gluten and the options at the supermarket are few and far between (and quite frankly all quite rubbish!) so thought baking my own was the way to go and cheaper. We got ours at Harvey Norman about six weeks ago for $188 which was half the price it seemed to be going for originally. I have just been following the recipes provided in the booklet buying all the individual gluten free flours (rice, potato, soy etc) rather than buying a premix packet. The recipe is fantastic. I have probably tweaked it a little ...bit now but the bread is perfect every time and it lasts me a complete week. I did work out how much each loaf roughly costs and it didn't save me money but I think the bread lasts me longer and of course its edible as opposed to previously stated supermarket rubbish. The machine is really easy to use. All the functions and display menu etc couldn't be simpler if it tried (my partner can even follow it). The reason my review was 1 star from a complete rating is that the paddle in the bottom of the pan that mixes it all up constantly falls down; its meant to stay up for the whole mixing period and then fall flat for baking. If you are buying this machine for similar reasons to me my tip is to follow their instructions for the GF recipe (the country one is my preference) which is to mix the ingredients together before putting into the machine adding the yeast as the last ingredient after its in the tin. Then unfortunately keep checking the mixing through the viewing window. I also pause the cycle every now and then to begin with to give it an extra stir and even the mix out. If you notice the mix not moving much when you can still hear it spinning you have to pause the cycle and manouvre your dough around a bit to locate the fallen paddle. Also, the automatic seed and nut dispenser is useless. If you are adding things like cumin/carraway seeds, they just fall straight through the grill bit into the bottom of your bread maker which is silly and then when the time comes in the cycle for them to dispense, the tray doesn't fall correctly so nothing actually goes into your mix. I just add mine from the start myself or when I hear the dispenser opening I pause the cycle and add them then. Not a big deal but its one of their selling features which in my opinion could be better designed. Great recipes, easy to use Seed dispenser, mixing paddle
Questions & Answers
The fruit and nut dispenser does not open. It is firmly closed. Can someone help please?
Our Breville machine’s paddle is flopping over to both sides instead of meeting resistance when in upright position and has scratched the bottom of the pan. It also makes a loud clicking tapping sound while kneading as it taps the bottom of the pan. Any ideas?
I just purchased this machine and after using it for the first time the collapsible paddle is stuck in the pan and I cannot get it out.. help please!!!
It can get stuck. Alot of people have that problem. It may need a bit of force to get it out. I fill the pan with hot soapy water and you should be able to remove it easily. Make sure it is free of all dough mix before using it again. I had an old mschine ( not a Breville and had to leave the paddle in it for that reason. Stil worked OK.
