Forgot I had this and as it was getting quite cold thought I would use it make some lovely bread to go with the hole made soup. Went for standard loaf and was completely confused by cups, tablespoons and fluid amounts. So I made sure that everything was brought down to grams and mls. Chose a 2lb loaf with dark crust which was about 3hrs. When it finished it was all wet, risen but no cooked so I tried putting onto No. 12 extra bake, still wet so I took the pan out and put it in the oven... (read more)

I have had this one for nearly a year, received as a wedding present. We no longer buy bread, and enjoy the easy to use breadmachine and the flexability for creativeness with it! Of chorse, you have that advantage with any breadmaker I suppose.
I have had a problem now and then where the bread pand falls off of the spindle which is annoying. Also the removable kneading part in the breadpan has its non stick coating peeling away which definatly isn't good.
Given the choice now, I would opt... (read more)

Morphy Richards replaced our initial model after it failed within the guarantee period and the replacement has now also failed, after a lifespan of approx 14 months. Something within the body of the machine that connects to the rotating spindle has broken and the paddle no longer rotates. This is hardly a low cost model and I expected more from a quality manufacturer but feel that I should buy a cheaper, competitors product to replace it if 12-14 months is the lifespan of bread makers in...

Morphy Richards Fastbake Stainless Steel 48268
I have used this for 3 years reasonably successfully although I occasionally get the pan jumping off the spindle problem reported by others. I can't believe MR would say this is supposed to happen, unless they mean as a safety feature, otherwise you would never get dough mixed properly. Sometimes the kneading blade doesn't lie flat and gets stuck in the bread but is easy to remove from the loaf. I found that both of these problems are likely if... (read more)

I have inherited this machine - and it came without a manual, so I am working blind and largely by experiment. I have always handmade my bread before, using an Aga, so the idea of using quick acting yeast instead of ordinary dried yeast is new to me. I have made several loaves which have collapsed at the top, although the rest of the loaf and its texture seem fine. Is there a rule which says you should not open the lid whilst it's working? I would be grateful for some tips please!
I find the... (read more)

Easy to use but indifferent results.Base of loaf always heavy and over-browned.top of loaf light and fluffy,like two totally different loaves. Tried different flours yeasts etc., similar results. Throw away bottom half of loaf and eat the top half! (read more)

Nice little machine the Morphy Richards 48268, but big drawback is the small loaf size. 1.5 pound loaf is the largest.
The mixing paddle is the devil to remove from the bottom of the loaf finally leaving a paddle shape hole into the first, second and third slice.
My machine burns the base and outside of the loaf for about one inch up.
Have to say though, I'll never go back to supermarket bread again.
Bread never tasted so good.

Well, having read some of the other comments of this Morphy Richards 48268 breadmaker, it doesn't sound like I'm describing the same machine. Works flawlessly and produces delicious bread. Makes about as much noise as a dishwasher for 10 to 15 minutes at a time. I found it very easy to get the bread out of the pan. Usually the paddle stayed in the pan, but sometimes sticks in the bread. Not hard to get out though, and only leaves a small hole. I was careful to follow the instructions about... (read more)

I spoke to Morphy Richards about the pan issue on the 48268 who advised me that the pan is meant to jump out? What nonsense, if you don't re-insert the pan the machine makes a terrible noise and churns the pan around the interior. For this reason, I would not recommend this machine. (read more)

Broke after 2 months of use - no spare parts available. The problem is with the spindle in the loaf tin which holds the kneading paddle inside the tin, and on the outside connects with the drive mechanism of the machine itself. The spindle appears to be very prone to seizing up, and without warning, so that the kneading paddle cannot be turned when the machine is operational. It is also not easy to clear the seizure because of the construction of the pan and the spindle mechanism which is... (read more)

Very noisy when operating
Kneader brakes,leaving bits in the bread
Leaves a huge hole in the bread, so most of it is wasted
Does not look like a loaf - have bought a much cheaper breadmaker which produces loaves that look like a loaves of bread, yippee!
Poor and very uninterested aftercare, who say it has been scientifically tested (read more)

This is the second Morphy Richards breadmaker (same model) in the last year. The same problem with this one is that the pan jumps out in the middle of the mixing so the mixture doesn't mix and the loaf stays flat. Also the paddle is a terrible fiddle to get out of the bread and is done with great difficulty and leaves a huge hole in the middle of the bread. Phoned the Helpdesk at Morphy Richards to explain but woman kept insisting the pan is meant to jump out and it was a complete waste of... (read more)

Instructions Manual needs to be updated. Recipes are not correct. Notwithstanding dosage units usage is explained bread making explanation needs improvements i.e. what is the role of each ingredient in each recipe. Bread recipe website for guidance on using the machine would be helpful as well as some FAQ about bread making. Think global not local. (read more)

The MorphyRichards 48268 is a rubbish breadmaker - avoid this one! I bought one a week ago, have attempted to make 3 loaves and I am taking it back to the shop today.
The paddle, which is supposed to stay vertical for the mixing cycle, falls down unless you wedge it with a knob of butter. The baking tin is very difficult to insert or remove without some sort of culinary Heimlich maneuver and the tin handle bent the first time I used it.
It is very large, bordering on bulbous and the... (read more)

The Morphy Richards 48268 bread maker looks good and it is fairly compact. Our first loaf was a success!! We were slightly concerned it might take a while to make a decent loaf, but we had no problems at all.
It would have been helpful if the instructions had stated that you must remove the tin and cool after preparing the machine, and before trying to bake the first loaf. (read more)

Having only had MorphyRichards 48268 machine since December 2004 and had a continuos problem of the pan jumping off it's location for the last 8 weeks, Morphy Richards have not given me a satisfactory explanation for this problem. I cannot think of any reason to recommend this product. (read more)

The MorphyRichards 48268 is my first breadmaker and I'm thrilled to bits with the excellent results. I particularly like the vertical tin as this allows you to make a 1lb loaf (most are min 1.5lb) and still retain a full size slice, this was an important factor for choosing this make/model. I like the very modern, stylish stainless steel casing. I've tried all different types of flours, with and without sugar, using extra virgin olive oil - all have come out great - brilliant machine!
