      not sure everyone would like this

      I was lucky even to win one of these on a TV auction-type channels for just £14 ( + p&p) & it was a bargain price because I think they normally cost around the £60 - £80 mark depending on what shop you frequent. It arrived, smartly boxed but maybe over-packaged when opened with all the polystyrene parts & polythene bags & wrapping - I pretended it was Christmas & opened everthing with relish! The machine itself looks the same as shown & is a good weight but not too heavy to move around the kichen (or utility room if I don't have workspace. It's an attractive appliance, easy to wash the recommended parts in the wishwasher whilst the machine itself plus some of the parts I washed by hand. The body of the breadmaker can be wiped down easily with a cloth/sponge & warm water & it still looked brand new 6-8 weeks later even though it was used everyday. The power is 800 watt & the maximum bread capacity is around 1250g. Although I had a few disasters when I first began using it, even having read the book (included) - I found the smell of the rising & baking of the bread was delicious but we found the bread to be rather dry. It was then that the sundried tomatoes & cheese came into their own as the texture was much better as,of course, was the flavour. I've experimented since & found some interesting recipes - eg bread with chocolate, onion bread, garlic bread & eggy bread. I even bought a breadmaker cookery book - the possibilities seem endless... However, I haven't used it recently - for me it's one of those products I think I HAVE to have because I NEED it when in fact I don't need it at all. I realise the bread is better for the family, you know the exact ingredients we are all consuming & it does taste good,but I have to admit that being a peasant at heart, I prefer good old Warburtons white spongy & soft loaves which can be picked up all ready & sealed, ready to eat & not have a big hole on the bottom of the bread. I've therefore put it away for a while & buy my moister, lighter bread & will compensate by introducing healthier food elsewher in my daily diet. in my daily diet. Shame - it seems to tick the boxes for convenience, more healthy bread, lovely smell, ease of use, simple to clean yet the bread (however I made it) was always heavy, a little hard to digest & not as nice as fresh bread made by hand in the old-fashioned way. Well designed, reliable & easy to use I'd give it 4 stars though - maybe it's just our family that found the bread heavy & difficult to digest lol! No doubt I'll go back to using it someday but I'm not sure I can recommend this to others 100%
