Guest's review of SilverCrest SBB 850 EDS A1

SilverCrest SBB 850 EDS A1

“A bread maker which produces excellent results.”

Written on: 15/02/2012

I am delighted with my SilverCrest bread maker. It is easy to use and always produces excellent results. I think that perhaps the best feature is that the programming enables you to remove the two paddles prior to the final rise of the loaf, so that when the cycle is over, the bread can easily be extracted from the tin and there are just two little holes where the spindles are.

Prior to this machine I had a Russell Hobbs 17887 and I was always so frustrated with the results. Each time the paddles would be embedded in the loaf so that when the loaf was baked it could only be removed from the tin with great difficulty and often the bottom of the loaf would be badly ripped. The Russell Hobbs bread maker was at least three times more expensive than the SilverCrest machine which I bought from Lidl for £34.99. Not only is the SilverCrest bread maker far cheaper, but I find that the results of the bread are far superior. An excellent buy!

At what point do you remove the paddles?

I find it best to leave the baked loaf in the tin for 10-15 minutes before removing it. I then loosen the sides with a plastic spatula and ithe loaf turns out very easily without damaging the underside of the bread at all. If it is left any longer, condensation can form in the tin and the loaf becomes damp.

I have had expensive breadmakers over the last 20 years but when my last one needed replacing, I bought a silvercrest from Lidl & have been delighted & amazed by the quality of the bread.I have made white,seeded,granary&even a ginger cake! All gorgeous&professional looking!! I only have one problem that I find it diificult to remove the bread,so will try removing the paddles prior to final rise of loaf. Is it better to leave in bread tin to cool down first?

I forgot to write yesterday that the times on the timer to remove the paddles e.g. 1:35 for a white 1000g loaf; 1:48 for a wholemeal 1000g loaf, etc.) are based on using the MEDIUM crust setting in each instance. The times indicated on the timer should be the same for every Silvercrest model SBB 850 EDS A1 bread maker.

The paddles can be removed just after the final short knead and just before the last rise. For example, when using Programme 1 for white bread, this last knead will be when the timer reads 1:32 for 750g loaf; 1:35 for a 1000g loaf; 1:40 for a 1250g loaf. When using Programme 3 for a wholemeal loaf, the last knead will begin when the timer reads 1:44 for a 750g loaf; 1:48 for a 1000g loaf; 1:53 for a 1250g loaf. All you have to do is press the start/stop button just once as soon as the machine has finished kneading, then open the lid, and remove the paddles from under the dough. Sometimes, it is best to quickly reknead the dough by hand into shape before replacing it in the machine. Then close the lid and press the stop/start button again just once to resume the bread making process. The loaf will then rise for the last time and be baked. Take the finished loaf out of the machine and it is best to let it cool for 10-15 minutes in the tin. It should then easily come out of the tin with just two tiny holes in the bottom where the spindles have left an impression. It took me quite some time and several times watching the whole breadmaking cycle to discovert the exact times to remove the paddles on each programme because the instructions do not tell you exactly at what time on the timer the final short knead occurs before the final rise and bake! But, once mastered it is so easy and every loaf turns out perfectly withoug huge gouges in the bottom where the paddles have been.
