Can you recommend a breadmaker

have had a Kenwood BM200 for years. I have used it daily and it is now not working. I need to replace it and wondered if anyone had any recommendations? Thank you...

Elpe

Bread machine

Quite a few of us on here have the Panasonic SD255 with the raisin/nut dispenser. My only quibble with it is that I wish the finished loaf would slide out more easily. Otherwise, it's great & makes very good bread. Costs about £100. Read the reviews on a site like Amazon - most are positive.

Bread Maker.

I too, have a Panasonic SD255, and should I ever need to replace it, I would like a shot. Like Elpe, I too wish the finished loaf would come out easier, and if the bleep was a tad louder................
In spite of this, I would repace it with the same, in a heartbeat.

Yes, Panasonic for me too.
Have friends who have bought other brands since and never quite the same good result .
Agree with everyone re. turning out the bread, feel like you are fighting at times !
Overall still a good buy in my opinion for the price.

Panasonic for me too, the 254. Last time I looked on Amazon it was £69.99.

Another vote for the Panasonic! I have the 254 and find it excellent especially as the price is so much more reasonable, not worth the extra for the nut dispenser in my opinion.

I have the 253 and with a good shake the bread comes out no problem. Those of you who have upgraded to the latest model, do you think that the pan is made from different material which might cause the bread to be more difficult to turn out?

My problem is that you hear about people buying breadmakers and only using them once.Everyone on this site obviously finds them great, is there no-one that has reservations? or doubts?

Would not be without mine !
OH makes great bread, I'm useless. If I waited for him though we would eat fresh bread twice a year if that !!

Bung it on timer before I go to bed and wake to that wonderful smell.
Magic!

Kenwood Service

"Have you tried to get it fixed rather than get a new one? Kenwood have service agents."

Thanks Lemain. I currently live in France and it doesn't seem to be quite so simple here...sadly. I have been very happy with my Kenwood, and have only asked the question to see what is around at the moment. Unhappily, the Panasonic that everyone is raving about is a lot more expensive here and, if I decide to go for it, will end up a lot cheaper to order from Amazon UK.

I would like to thank everyone for their help...

Im that person.

When my breadmaker packed up, I did not replace.

Prefer making it by hand.

Life without a breadmaker...

"My problem is that you hear about people buying breadmakers and only using them once.Everyone on this site obviously finds them great, is there no-one that has reservations? or doubts?"

I can only say that life is not the same without my breadmaker!! You would think, living in France, all that lovely French bread!! Well, it's not like that at all. A French stick is great if you buy it and eat it really fresh - it goes stale so quickly - and that goes for all the bread I have tried. If you have to go to the boulanger daily for bread it becomes costly in petrol. A BREADMAKER is definitely a must have, and certainly not for the back of the cupboard!!

bread safe


We spend months a year in France and are about to settle there....I totally agree with you. Have you tried the traditional 'bread safe' -- nothing more than a wooden box with air-holes and a fly-mesh, a bit like an umbrella stand? Baguette seems to keep better there than any other ways but I can't explain why."

Lemain - thanks for the tip re the 'bread safe'. Will perhaps give it a try... As a matter of interest, where abouts in France are you going to settle?

PS Looking at al these breadmakers and since I was really pleased with my Kenwood, I have narrowed my choice down to the Panasonic 254/255 or the Kenwood BM450 - Any thoughts??
