5 years of using my Russell Hobbs 10008 Breadman Pro with at least one loaf per week, nearly always produced brilliant results. Wonderful pizza dough. Dead easy to use and reliable. I always use the white bread setting for all loaves. Overnight timer seemed to produce less good results, though still acceptable. Pan bearing wore out after 3 years - no the pan leaks and frustratingly I can't get a replacement. The paddle stopped coming out cleanly fairly quickly (replacements did the... (read more)

The Russell Hobbs 10008 Breadman Pro is easy to use, fantastic range of programmes, have owned it for around 8 years and it has never let me down. Only disasters due to "pilot error". Makes at LEAST one loaf per week plus buns sand cakes. Great steam funciton for rolls and bagels. First class machine. Don't know why people have problems with it. (read more)

Have had the Breadman Pro for several years and it has never lwt me down. It is very versatile, easy to use and massive range of programmes inclung steam function and baking rack for bagels and rolls. After baking, you have to wait for it to cool down properly before you can make another loaf. (read more)

The Russell Hobbs 10008 Breadman is a great piece of equipment which I have thoroughly enjoyed using. I have used my Breadman Pro 10008 for approx 7 years with no problems at all. Instructions were very easy to follow and I have baked bread successfully at least once a week. It's a great machine. This item is no longer available so if no one else wants there - I'll give it a good home! (read more)

Our Russell Hobbs 10008 Breadman Pro made 4 loaves a week for about 5 yrs, so it earned its keep. Odd that so many people had bad experiences with this! But it is a pity that spare parts are no longer available or ours might run another 5 years. (read more)

The Russell Hobbs 10008 Breadman Pro makes very good bread - or did until it started sticking to bread pan. once the bread started sticking to the bread pan, was unable to get a replacement - and it now leaks so can't use timer. Have to replace everything. (read more)

This russell hobbs breadmakers is NOT worth the price you pay for it. It is one of THE hardest machines to use. The instructions & troubleshooting sections are pathetic. Sometimes the buttons work and sometimes they don't. It is INCREDIBLY hard to get the machine to start making a loaf of bread immediately. Most of the time when I press start/stop it either starts madly scrolling down from 15:00 to 3:00 over and over and over again OR the timer automatically comes on and there seems... (read more)

The Russell Hobbs 10008 Breadman Pro is easy, has a good instruction book with lots of recipes.
Produced great results when room temperature was even and cooler. Bread didn't always rise properly during very hot weather or when room temperature fluctuated due to doors or windows being opened during baking time.
Mine lasted 3 years. Overall, it gave a very good performance, and we're now looking to replace it with a new one at a good price. (read more)

This product would probably go on making good bread and pizzas for many years to come if only Russell Hobbs had an adequate supply of spare parts. Frustrating! (read more)

This would be a very good machine, it makes a nice large loaf and also the rolls & bagel feature is useful, but it has this 1 major fault. See 'bad' points. (read more)

STOP!!! Read this! We were given a 'Russell Hobbs Breadman Pro - Healthy Options' as a Christmas present from our parents.
The very first time we used it we noticed a big problem. The baking tin sits on a cam which turns the kneading arm. The tin is kept in position by two spring clips. When the dough is being kneaded slowly everything is fine but when the dough is being kneaded quickly problems arise.
The weight of the ball of dough tends to knock the tin around a lot. The spring clips... (read more)

We have had some very good loaves but yesterday our Russell Hobbs 10008 Breadman Pro died just beyond its years warranty which has left a sour taste indeed. (read more)

After exactly one year of owning the Russell Hobbs 10008 Breadman Pro, one tiny bearing at the bottom of the baking tin needed replacement. Not available as a spare part - but the baking tin is - at only £55 + VAT + carriage. So you spend £80 every year to keep a £90 appliance going? - I don't think so.
This is a throw-away item. It's designed to last a year and they've got it spot-on. Well done, Russell Hobbs - but you're not selling me another one! (read more)

Russell Hobbs bakes a truly wonderful sized loaf - easy to use and the racks are very good for doing something different by baking rolls bagels etc. Maybe a bit bigger than some models but then I never put it away now as there are so many varities of flour and recipies to use! I shopped around a found it for a bargain price. (read more)
