A real bread winner!
Member Name: DOGDAYZ
Advantages: affordable and easy to use
Disadvantages: quality of bread isn't as good as shop bought bread
I like to have toast for breakfast, soup with a couple of slices of buttered bread for lunch and maybe a salad or stew with a few slices of bread with my dinner. We as a family eat quite a bit of bread and felt it time we bought a bread machine, whilst browsing for our weekly shop in Tesco we decided to give the Tesco bread maker a try. Being completely new to bread-making we were very grateful for the useful manual enclosed. As well as the typical details on what each section is for it contained details on recipes as well. The machine also comes complete with programmes for your typical white bread and even making sweet dough.
The machine is an ideal size to sit on the kitchen worktop and whilst it is placed on the kitchen worktop I am far more likely to use it unlike the other gadgets resigned to the bottom cupboard. I found the machine very useful for making donuts and sweet dough, although the white bread was always easy to do I preferred to do some of the less well known varieties. After a few months I started making dog treats by substituting ingredients for dog friendly ones. We now sell these on behalf of a dog rehoming charity.
I think the best part about the Tesco bread maker is the smell part way through, although the taste and texture of cooked bread wasn't what I'd get from the shop. When you by a loaf from the supermarket you miss that gorgeous smell and the smell does make you far more hungry for more.
I thought the bread machine was amazing value for money. It cost us £35.99 and has made over £100 for charity as well as the many loaves we have made for ourselves. I'd definitely recommend the machine to all families, regardless of time constraints. The timer function is amazing the only down side is that it doesn't slice my bread.
Summary: A brilliant little bread winner!
