Bought it in January and it just stopped working in July, computer has gone crazy!
I replaced my old bread maker when it started to let me down after about 10 years. I really liked the idea of being able to add automatically so purchased the Morphy Richards Stainless Steel Bread Maker - 48319MR .
At first it worked well, then it started to play up. Now it just cant be programmed. So disappointing!
Purchased in January 2019 at Catch.com.
I use the breadmaker every second day. But it doesn't brown the top of the bread even tho I have it on the highest setting. Am I doing something wrong?
Or do I buy a different one?
over sensitive and unpredictable
Sadly the loaf browns around sides and bottom but not on top. The recipe quantities need to be reviewed by the company too; I have found that most of them require more water than stated. If the machine struggles with a slightly thicker dough mix (as per most of their recipes it seems), the machine starts a fit of appopletic beeping and resets it's self to the start of the programme again. Consequently, I daren't use the timer. It's Russisn roulette as to whether I will wake up with a loaf of bread or an uncooked lump of dough. As the first b...readmaker I have ever owned, this is so disappointing and frustrating. I have successfully made pizza dough in it though - using my own recipe. I don't recommend this machine at all. A friend of mine has a different brand. I plan to chuck this piece of neurotuc machinery in the bin and buy the same brand he uses I think. At least I only used qantas points and about $50 to buy this one.....so luckily not a huge outlay.
I bought this as a replacement for my old Breville breadmaker, which is still working but slowly dying. It's bad to say but the old breadmaker blows this one out of the water. The loaf that comes out is always smaller (in height) than the old breadmaker and the crust less crunchy on max setting. This is okay, not that I'm happy with it but I can live with it, but what is not okay is the control failures. Touching the stainless steel can at times cause the controls to go nuts, sometimes resetting the entire cycle mid-run. The light will turn on ...and off mid cycle by itself at times (with a maddening beep at times useful as a death metal metronome) and needs to be turned on and off manually to stop it. I am extremely disappointed by the build quality, especially as it cost over $200, this kind of thing is totally unacceptable

Use it every day
Machine is good but I have been making bread for 30 years and never found ingredients of recipes correct. The bread is only as good as the correct amount of ingredients in the mix. Takes a number of trails before the right quantities are found. Makes perfect loaf if the mix is right.
Bread maker: New as Good as Old
Frequently it is stated that modern products aren’t as good as older versions; recently the opportunity arose to determine if that applied to bread makers. Just over a decade ago I purchased a bread maker against the sales assistant’s advise and it lasted just over two weeks. With tails between legs I returned the item, and this time purchased the originally recommended product a Morphy Richards Model 48319, albeit at almost twice the price of the original purchase.
Being diabetic bread baking is important due to lower sugar, fat and salt cont...
Very short lived Breadmaker.
No receipt as was a Christmas present. Lasted approx 14 months of use, not continuous. Pan needs to be replaced as Possibly it may fix the problem. Paddle support falls out as split washer worn out. Pan also flicks to off location before finishing cycle. Have contacted Glen Dimplex Australia for support and received a "political" response....lots of words without committing to anything including only advising me to buy a new pan at Au$70.00. Loved the operation of the machine and found it to be user friendly. Will try a different brand now.
Consistently good results, reliable and sturdy
This breadmaker is good for making salt free or gluten free bread. Replace the salt with a little gluten flour and lemon juice, and youll have a healthy loaf that doesnt send you blood pressure sky high. It has 18 baking options including sweet loaf, gluten free and two that you can set up with knead and raising settings you will reuse. Theres a nut and fruit dispenser that means you dont have to lift the lid at the right time to add them. You can lift the lid to add a little flour/liquid if it looks too we/dry after first kneading.
Its a reliable, sturdy machine that will take your own recipe and give consistent results. I love it, its my heart-saver.
I'm not what some of the other reviewers are doing? But I haven't had a dodgy loaf yet. I follow the instructions & recipes provided in the manual & every loaf has been perfect.
Total Piece of crap.
I have tried a few times to make a normal loaf of bread with this machine.
Total fail even when following the directions to the letter.
It doesn't mix well and it doesn't knead well.
If the warranty hadn't expired I'd take it back.
The ancient Panasonic I had totally kicked it's terrible.
Back to Panasonic.
Paddle cooks in the loaf
I've been making bread for over 30 years, and using a bread machine for over 20 years.
Very upset that I threw out my old reliable machine to replace it with this newer, supposedly 'state of the art' Morphy Richards 48319.
1/ The instructions are abysmal! (and I know how to make bread with a bread machine!) You have to flip forward and back through the manual to work out how to make a basic loaf of bread.
2/ The controls are very hard to use - I've had to hold the buttons down continuously and repeatedly to get them to work
3/ The ingredie...
Unexpected bread height and density
This is my second Morphy Richards bread machine. The first had a square tin and worked fine until it (probably) needed a belt change (became noisy) which is impossible.
The 48319 has a design flaw it cannot handle the rectangular tin. That's why the tin "dances" during operation and that's why bread shape and density are unexpected. My main problem is the touch panel. Everything works fine except for the on/off operation (long push on touch button). Sometimes I struggle with the button for 10 minutes before the machine will start. Does anybody know if service is capable of replacing the touch panel or should I look for a new machine?
Awful. Wast of money and time
Here is copy of our e'mail to customercare UK
I have come to the end of my tether with this machine.
It has never worked properly from the outset and the paddle falling to pieces has been the final straw.
I contacted your customer services department in November 2011 to report the faults with the machine but was so badly treated by the representative I gave up exasperated and tried to continue using the machine using the only workable programme (homemade programme No.16) using my own developed settings which gave an acceptable product.... However this is just a ridiculous position to be in and now that the paddle has self destructed I am driven to demand satisfaction. Some background: I am an experienced user of Morphy Richards bread makers having been the very happy and contented owner of two 48268 Fastbakes previously. When the last of those reached the end of its life I decided to "upgrade" to the 48319 machine. This machine has been a disaster. It will not produce a decent loaf using the standard programmes giving as dense brick.
Pan comes loose
The first time we used this breadmaker it worked perfectly. However, since then the pan hasn't seated properly. That is, one can seat it, but when the pan revolves it somehow becomes disconnected. Consequently the dough doesn't rise and the end product is a rock-hard bun. On looking up help Morphy Richards website, I discovered the options given for signing in were restricted. For example, only two countries were listed: UK or Ireland. Hence if I want to complain I need to phone, a little hard in our rural area.
pan becomes disconnected. Difficulty in contacting manufacturer
I bought this breadmaker around June 2011. I have used it in a few different houses and it did trip the electricity in a house with older wiring. In this case, I suggest you reset the fuse and try another powerpoint. I have been baking a few different loaves in it and it has generally worked nicely. These included bread mixes, scones and the brand's own recipes for various breads (sweet, savoury etc). Results have been good. My parents particularly like this breadmaker and have half stolen it off me. Consistency of the bread is different to sto...re-bought stuff and makes especially good toast. There are lots of options with this machine and I am still trying the different functions. Makes good bread. Easy to clean. Sturdy build and attractive design Measures are in pounds not kilos (english brand). Has tripped electricity in an old house
This machine hasn't let us down, not once.
We LOVE fresh bread. The smell. The texture. The warmth of a fresh loaf and crunch of the crust. And most importantly, the ability to make it ourselves - any time.
We're not overly adventurous with our bread making, and we only bake about once a month, so I wouldn't expect ANY machine to struggle with a pretty simple program and limited amount of use, and this machine hasn't let us down, not once.
I am bewildered by the reviews that say this machine is incapable of producing an edible loaf.
I'll get to that later.
The finish of the ma...chine itself is great (matches the rest of our appliances), it's exceptionally fast to choose a program, and easy to clean. The internal light keeps me coming back like a moth to a flame (or an impatient child) to sneak a peek - isn't that half the fun?
Not very good at all
I have bought this item 8 months ago the first one blew the fuses, the second one was good for approx 10 bread and started playing up bread not rising and only seem to bake little bricks. I rang the store and you get the usual run a round try this and than try this.
I would advise everyone to skip this machine as a friend of mine bought the same and has similar problems.
everything is wrong with this machine
Simply awsome, i did much research after my sanyo lasted 13 years, this machine is fantastic after two weeks of solid baking every day, very quiet, no viabrations, easy twist action of the bread tin putting in and taking out, the colapsable paddle still leaves hole but is much smaller than old machine, bread falls right out every time, i like lightest crust setting for white bread, also keeps bread warm when finished if you forget to get it out, so bread doesnt go soggy and the timer counts to let you know how long it has been ready, very happy so far.
very quiet, competitive price, internal light, heaps of functions.
Terrible, only fit for the dump.
Probably the biggest waste of money I have ever spent. wish I didn't throw out the old one, it at least had a 99% success rate. There is no way way i would recommend this machine to anyone.
Would be lucky if 1:10 even turns out, yesterdays attempt did not even mix the dough properly.
Have contacted the company. Lets see if they respond.
Poor success rate in actual bread making!
If I could rate it 0 stars, I would!
This breadmaker does not produce anything edible. I have tried many different recipes (The provided recipe book is very hard to read) and premixes, but none turned out a good loaf of bread. It doesn't bake well, with the bottom of the loaf always super dense. It does not mix well, with the corners of the tin often piles of flour! It also short-circuits my house when switching to bake mode.
In one word: Horrible!
Doesn't bake, doesn't mix, short circuits the house.

Questions & Answers
what is the difference between 48319 and premium 48319 Robert
GLEN D.Morphy Richards
The Morphy Richards Bread Maker model 48319 is the Premium Plus. There is only one model with the numbers 48319.
Is normal on pizza dough setting no 14 that there is a delay of approx 30 min before it starts up
I find it hard to program. I press the plus button at the top and it will go to about program 3 then back to 2 then maybe up to 7 then back to 6. Sometimes I just cant get it to go to 14 Pizza no matter what I do. I then use my cheap Breville which is super easy to program and try the Morphy Richards next week. Sometimes it will go right through to 14, its just a crap shoot. I would like to make pizza doughin my Morphy Richards and a loaf of bread in my Breville at the same time, but this is not to be. Can anyone tell me if holding my mouth a different way will help?
The only thing I suggest is what I did, just tip the whole thing in the trash can. I was running out of patience with the stupid thing, it has been the worse appliance I ever bought.
I know this is not going to help you - but I am sure that is what you end up doing with that piece of [censored word removed].
