Underrated Bread maker
I have used Kogan bread maker for around two years and found it to be surprisingly good. Before purchasing I read some mixed reviews, some excellent and some poor. At the time my bread maker had expired and I really didn't have the money for a replacement. In the end I took the risk and bought the Kogan. So far it's not disappointed making some pretty decent bread. Has quite a few settings for a variety of bread recipes but I usually stick to the fast loaf setting. Agree with others that it's a noisy machine.
After reading some of the other re...

Do not buy this Chinese junk
Made 1 loaf of bread then died. Just buy bread for the cost of this rubbish could have bout 50 loaves from the local baker.
Was bought on a whim but regret it.
Sorry to my local baker

Do not buy this unit - It will disappoint you.
Edit (2). After emailing 6 times to one customer service person, and twice to another, and sending the customer service person my ACCC complaint along with a screen cap of the fines and complaints issued by ACCC... they offered me a refund because they didn't want to lose a valuable customer. The refund came through just now, for the full price and the postage. See pictures. This is a review on a product not the company but now I am going to write a review on the company in another review.
------------original review of the bread maker------...------------------ I will start by stating I am a Trade qualified baker. Im 54, done my back in so a bread maker seemed a good idea (I get a really sore back standing for 20 mins kneading dough). I was aware a machine cannot do as a human so I was prepared for some variance. However.. this machine is not compatible with how bread is made in Australia. In Australia all bread is generally what is called "no time" meaning it is mixed, 5 mins rested, shaped, raised (proofed) then baked. Its a fairly quick process. This machine poorly mixes (I had to pause it to finish the mixing as it was not even close), then it raises (proofed) then it knocked it back (this is not done in "modern bread making" effectively ruining the dough. Then the dough has to rise again which it will struggle to do as the gluten conditioner added to no time dough (and in all supermarket bread mixer pre mixes) conditions the gluten all the way. A "time dough" is different again and that is half mixed, raised for 4 hours, knocked back, raised for another 4 hours, knocked back and then shaped raised (proofed) and then baked. Further.. the recipe section of the book is crazy. I Challenge you to taste bread made with 1% salt to 3 % salt. See the difference and taste the difference. This is a normal bread recipe by weight Bread making flour 100% Water 55 - 68% (depends on flour) Yeast (wet or dry, anywhere from 1% to 4%).

Good Price But That Comes... At a Price
It was pretty cheap and at first seemed like she good buy. Despite being VERY loud it did the job. But after a bit over a year and maybe 60 uses the clip that retains the shaft for the stirring paddle has broken so now the bread pan leaks and the paddle has worn off the non stick coating inside the pan (I guess we ate some of that, before we noticed - I hope it's not toxic). Kogan won't fix or replace the bread pan, and the unit is useless without a bread pan so in the end it cost us around $2.50 per use/loaf. Should have just gone to Coles for bread. Don't buy one of these.

Great bread but questioning the quality after some use
I have mainly used the Laucke premix and this machine makes a beautiful loaf with the bread baked perfectly. Unfortunately, after only 2 months use using it once or twice a week the non-stick coating is coming off the mixing paddle. I noticed this when it started to pull a big chunk of bread out when tipping the loaf out. I now can’t use it as I do not want little pieces of non-stick coating in my bread... I’m also wondering how long the tin will last before it starts to deteriorate?? Due to it being non-stick I have never scrubbed the parts an...d soaked if the paddle was stuck. Have lodged a claim with Kogan but no outcome as yet. EDIT: Kogan Customer Service has been fantastic and sending out a replacement machine. Hopefully, it was just a faulty coating and the next one lasts as this machine is a great bread maker :)

Good Machine, lots of settings, Great price!
My Breville bread maker died and it was more expensive to buy the mixing pin/clip, so I bought this bread machine. I use my machine every Friday for homemade pizza and make bread regularly so I need something reliable. After using this new machine, I have to say I am very happy with it. I always use the same bread recipe as the last machine and use the french setting. The bread turns out better in this machine! Only thing I fine disturbing is when the machine starts banging to release the nuts or seeds from the dispenser.

I always had a popular brand b/maker which died after many years so purchased a Kogan & couldnt be happier with what it does & I think it cooks the bread even better than previous machine as I like it dark.The machine has a wide range of settings to please eveyones liking
Does the job
I've used bread makers for many years, the latest being the Kogan. It does the job for me, but that's because I only ever use the machines to mix the dough. After proving I take it out of the bread maker, let it have a final rise, and then bake in the oven. Like many folks, I've never liked the taste of the bread maker bread. So yes, the Kogan is cheap but it works fine for me.
Very Poor Bread Maker
we bought this model because it was cheap, it does not get hot enough to cook the bread properly, a waste of good money
Questions & Answers
I have just received my bread maker and the seed dispenser came as a separate part. I can't work out how to attach it to the machine. There's nothing about it in the paper quick start guide.
I have one too, I love the machine but the dispenser is useless. It’s difficult to line up properly and most the time it does not release the ingredients. I have given up using it and just add my extras when the machine beeps instead.
Hi, we've just tried baking our first loaf of fruit bread. We set it to a 'sweet bread' cycle with an overnight timer and put the fruit in the dispenser. When we woke up, we found that the fruit had been dumped on top of the loaf and not mixed through. What did we do wrong here?
I tried the same loaf and the dispenser did not work at all. I ended with a fruitless loaf!
