“5 years of using my Russell Hobbs 10008 Breadman Pro...”

Written on: 11/02/2009

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 same)… Read Full Review

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 Full Review

Written on: 04/01/2009 by Margaret S (1 review written)

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 Full Review

Written on: 06/04/2008

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 to… Read Full Review

Mmmm - not sure about this report. Did the reviewer really read and follow the instructions and as a result interupted the operation of the breadmaker when the bread making process was not as intended? I guess all the other reviewers must be wrong.

Written on: 03/01/2008

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 Full Review

<br/>If you're interested in buying it, please leave a comment (The Review Centre team can then send you my e-mail address). I can list it on Ebay and would be happy to sell it with a BUY IT NOW if you prefer.

Written on: 25/11/2005 by Fab2 (1 review written)

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 which… Read Full Review

Written on: 05/03/2005 by correlejco (1 review written)

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 Full Review

I think a lot of company's assume people know that we live in the throw away age.
<br>So many new variations of items come on the market year after year and some people like to keep up with the latest piece of equipment. I believe we should be told the average time an item should last and I also believe that the item should be guaranteed for that same length of time

Yep, me too, joining the ranks of those having to throw the machine away for want of a spare loaf pan. Spindle seals worn out, just like everyone else. I shan't be buying another Russell Hobbs either, but going to the Panasonic which I originally wanted but which was unavailable due to demand 6 years ago!

I've had a similar experience. The metal spindle holding the paddle has worn away so that when making bread it gets contaminated with ground up black rubber. I haven't been able to find a spare replacement.

Amazing how experiences differ isn't it? We bought our Breadman Pro at the end of 2002 and it's still going strong - just the non-stick surface beginning to stick after, say, 600 or so loaves. It makes wonderful bread and was our third breadmaker purchase, neither of the previous two having lasted a year. There yer go!

Having sung the praises of my Breadman to all and sundry I am now having to back track as it recently had to be put out of service due to a disintegrated paddle bearing. Russell Hobbs spares department curtly informed me it was now obsolete and I would have to buy a new breadmaker. I can assure you it will not be a Russell Hobbs breadmaker or any other Russell Hobbs item. I thought we were supposed to be recycling and reusing our electrical goods!

Our BreadmanPro seams to have the same problem ... the bearing for the mixer paddle is very stiff and the loaf isn't getting mixed properly. So it's reassuring to know that I'm not the only one experiencing this type of problem.

I agree that trying to get a spare part is hopeless. I wouldn't have bought it had I known. The part I want is so easy to replace, even my grandchildren could do it.

Written on: 16/09/2005

I totally agree with this review, the same thing happened to us and also the plastic bread paddle became looser and looser as the plastic started to wear away, in the end it just wouldn't mix at all. So we ended up with 3.5 hours of squeaky ball-bearings for a flat, unmixed loaf! Russell Hobbs are absolute robbers for not supplying spares at a good price - Morphy Richards have got this bang on and i've just bought one of their breadmakers as I refuse to give Russell Hobbs any more money.
