Top five breadmakers
Baking your own bread may seem an impossibly domestic goddess-type
thing to do, but it's made very much easier by the ownership of a
breadmaker. Here are Mumsnetters'
The undisputed leader of the field, and not the most expensive model on the shelves, either.
"We had debated this purchase for ages as thought that it might be a
gimmick! How wrong we were: fresh bread every morning and better than any bread
we have tasted in years!"
"I had used breadmakers before and always been disappointed with the
results, however we brought this one which cost quite a bit but we are
extremely pleased with it. The bread is light and fluffy. We have had it over
two years and we have definitely got our money's worth."
The price won't break the bank, and the performance doesn't suffer in the slightest - bargain!
"This is a fantastic breadmaker at a bargain price. I've had mine for
over a year and have used it loads. It makes lovely bread - the wholemeal
recipe with added mixed seeds is particularly good."
So simple to use, it has been known to convert even hardened cynics to breadmaking fiends.
"We received this breadmaker as a wedding present. It has absolutely convinced me of the value of having one, and if it ever breaks (we've had no issues so far) it will certainly be replaced."
"Really reasonable price. It's simple to use and the delay feature means I can set it before bedtime and wake up to the smell of freshly baked bread."
This not only makes brilliant bread - it also makes brilliant jam. There's breakfast toast and a sandwich for lunch sorted, then.
"We got this as a Christmas present years ago and it has rapidly become
one of the most used items in our kitchen (other than the cooker!)"
"We've had this for over two years now and it never fails to make
the best bread. Also does jam, cakes, artisan bread and pizza dough."
With reliably delicious recipes, giving you a wide variety of crust colours and loaf sizes to choose from, this is one of the most versatile breadmakers available.
"I bought this after my beloved breadmaker died. I will try our more
of the programmes as time goes by but at the moment I am making the white loaf
every day because as quickly as I make it the children are eating it (I've even
had to resort to hiding some slices to ensure I get some)."
