Paddle sticks in loaf - leaves crater when removed

After all these years with the same problem, you would have thought that the engineers would have developed a paddle that does not stick in the bottom of the loaf. We are on our 5th breadmaker machine over 25 years and the problem only seems to get worse. Takes the pleasure out of home made bread Show details

Unable to make bread that doesn't sink dramatically. Very disappointed

I bought this a few days ago. It goes through the motions of working, however I have baked 3 loaves of bread, following the basic bread/ wheat bread recipe to the letter and in all cases bread rises then sinks to one quarter height. Very disappointing. I even tried 3 different packets of new yeast, all in date. It does do a good dough program (kneads well). Currently being refunded from appliances online. Great service from them Show details

Consistently Good, Makes Great Bread

We have found this bread maker to make very good bread consistently. We use Laucke flour mixes, using 400 grams of mix with 250-260 mls of water and one and a quarter to one and a half teaspoons of yeast and Menu 1 or 2. The bread rises well and has a nice domed shape. Yes the paddle causes a hole in the bottom but all bread makers do this, even the most expensive. We have also made the sticky date pudding from the recipe in the manual very successfully. The bread loaf size is not large but you could make 2 loaves if you want more. It's just set and forget. Definitely recommended. Show details

The easiest way to make bread

I purchased this so I can make heaps of bread quickly and easily for breakfast and I can also make Pizza dough for Pizzas as well for my family and friends when I move into my own unit in March 2021. On Wednesday 24th August 2022 it was extremely nice of them to authorise Appliances Online to approve the refund because the bread kept sticking to the bread pan since it was too small and the viewing window was too small as well. Show details ·  1

Excellent little machine

7 years of reliable service, used several times per week, often daily or more often. Very simple and easy to use and doesn't look bulky or industrial on the kitchen bench. It's compact and not too heavy: we've stored it in a lower cupboard, lifting onto the bench each time it's used and it's not a problem. Does everything it's supposed to do just fine. A very serviceable little workhorse. Show details ·  1

Does the job but beeping overnight an issue

Makes nice bread, stick to basic type of flour though. Love the French Bread with great crust and super soft inside. If you leave it to bake overnight, there are some irritating beeps that might wake you. Show details

Great bread shame about the chunk left in breadmaker

Its very easy to start the process - I did it while making toast this morning, but its a shame that the bread stuck to the paddle gets left behind when you remove the loaf. I get a really tasty multigrain loaf in 4 hours after about 3 minutes preparation time. See the picture for the bread lost when removing the loaf from the bread maker Show details
