The Engineer's review of Kenwood BM450

Kenwood BM450

“A very nice bread maker with lots of different...”

Written on: 13/10/2009 by The Engineer (2 reviews written)

A very nice bread maker with lots of different programmes and capabilities to allow for the making of all sorts of different types and styles of bread and cakes. It does seem to struggle with wholemeal breads, often producing a very 'heavy' texture to that type of loaf. There is advice in the included recipe book on how to get round this, but the advice is not always successful. We have used the alternative methods suggested (adding white flour to the mix) which results in a loaf that rises during 'proving' and collapses during cooking.

Unfortunately our Kenwood BM450 only lasted two weeks (and 6 loaves) before the heater element devloped a fault and shut the house electrics off every time the heater came on!!

I found this review not helpful because...

<br/>I would like to know if the afterservice was good and the problems were resolved. It appears that all the reviews I have looked at have had a couple of negatives and you can't expect every machine to not have a fault at some point. My concern other than reliability is how these faults were dealt with.

I found this review very helpful because... I believe an engneers view wil be far more objective in terms of build quality and reliabilty - a wonderfull loaf or ginger cake is no good if the appliance fails within months.
