I've ordered a panasonic as a treat, it makes jam as well rustic and sour dough loaves. This is new territory as the old machine could get as far as a French loaf.

Appart from a white loaf I'm a bit clueless so any tips, ideas a recipe book recommendations would be great.

My Panasonic came with recipes - they all work beautifully. I'd try those first before buying another book as they will have been designed specifically for your bread maker.

Ah, thank you. My last BM was second hand so it arrived just as it was. I will work my way through the book.

Some easy ones to get started

I started off following the bread maker recipes in the booklet that came with my bread maker. Now I mostly use it for doughs actually! Pizza dough, rolls, I've done pannetone, baguette dough, sourdough as well. I have a book called Modern Baker for sourdough which has worked brilliantly for me and so much less waste getting the sourdough starter going as you only add a tiny teaspoon of flour each day to start with.

Best tip I had was to lift the lid when it had mixed a bit and give it a quick prod. It should look like dough (who knew!) - mine was clearly too wet and I switched to using less than the recommended amount of water and it was much better. Just don't lift the lid later while it's cooking.

Loads of recipes with the machine. I mostly make a white loaf & a wholemeal loaf, though!
