It's so much easier than making bread yourself. My machine was made by Silver Reed and produces a perfect loaf every time. Stick rigidly to the recipe book quantities at first, then try experimenting. I like the programme 3 whole grain recipe best. I use Lidl's white bread flour and Alinson's wholemeal flour to produce a really tasty loaf. I am now starting to substitute olive oil for butter, otherwise I stick to the recipe. I remove the paddles at the start of the second rise and end up with just two holes where the spindles go through. At £24.99 I think the machine is fantastic value. Well done to Lidl and Silver Reed/Bifinett.
