Rated 4 out of 5 by Andrewc3675 Easy to use machine
My first breadmaker , found it easy to use and straight forward instructions, my first loaf came out 98% a little less liquid next time , but very tasty brown bread, it will take a few more before we have it perfect, great fun watching your bread from flour and water to a hot loaf.
Should have purchased one years ago,

Rated 3 out of 5 by hairy1 GOOD AND BAD
I purchased this breadmaker and found it excellent for making breads, however where this machine seriously fails is on Program 4 - cakes. I followed the recipe in the breadmakers book for the fruit cake, and after three attempts, it failed miserably. All three attempts I measured ingredients to the letter, and the instructions to the letter but after only 1hr and 20 minutes (which frankly is not enough on this program), the bread maker beeped to indicate that it had finished, I had a fruit cake that was, well, still a liquid on top and right through the middle. I can only assume that Russell Hobbs either misprinted the recipe incorrectly or that the program itself is an unresolved and known issue to russell hobbs. I have now taken to making my fruit cakes and other items in my oven. Program 4 lets this wonderful bread maker down miserably and with no ability to alter the time on the program, it is just not worth the wasted ingredients and the wasted time to try a fourth attempt.

Rated 4 out of 5 by rottweilerl very happy
Purchased this after I threw out my old bread maker which was so heavy and noisy. This however is a dream to use. Easy buttons, lightweight and quiet compared to my old bread maker. So far loaves have come out lovely, the only downside is the top of the loaf never browns no matter if you have on the darkest setting, don't know if this happens in all breadmakers?? Otherwise happy

Rated 5 out of 5 by breadlover So Easy!
Decided on this machine because it isn't too bulky to leave out on the kitchen worktop and didn't seem too complicated!
We haven't had time to try all the different recipes yet, but the large white , large whole wheat and the "Fastbake 1" loaves (takes only 55 mins) - have all been excellent, with a very good texture and great flavour. Would recommend to anyone who enjoys good bread!

For once I read the instructions carefully. I measured all the ingredients with precision. I made two loaves which both did not rise at all. I had my previous breadmaker for six years without one failed loaf. I returned the appliance and am going to receive a refund. Asda were brilliant it back. I don't know if it was faulty but it didn't function properly.

Very disappointed with this product more often than not I have to finish my bread in the oven, and it always falls in the middle even when I use a packet mix. iv tried changing the quantities of the ingredients but it makes no difference .

My beloved old RH bread maker needed replacing. Despite reviews all looking good I was still sceptical. Especially as it looked so much smaller than my old one. My first loaf failed due to me using my usual recipe but when I used the one that came with the machine it was pure perfection. GET THIS MACHINE! it's Brilliant!.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ReverandDavid reasonal priced bread maker
Needed to replace my old bread maker so I searched for a reasonable replacement that was not to expensive, The Russell Hobbs bread maker had good reviews, so I went ahead and bought one. I wish I ha done this sooner. I have made two loaves of different size and I am very impressed with the results. An exellent purchase.

This is my third breadmaker. I am very disappointed with it and am now looking to replace it. The freshness and crustiness of the bread does not meet the standard of previous breadmakers and soon develops and mouldy smell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Curley61 Great bread maker
I researched bread makers and decided this one was ideal for my purpose. I wanted to make a home made loaf of bread at least once a week. My husband likes shop bought " cotton wool " bread and I don't. Even he is impressed with my home made loaves. This bread maker is easy to use and so far we have not been disappointed.

I only tend to use it for making dough and then proving and cooking my own bread, teacakes etc. With my previous one I could set the timer for making dough but with this one I cannot. That is my only complaint everything else is as previously.

Smart, neat, and effective - this breadmaker does exactly what it says on the tin, it bakes great bread! Very easy to use, lots of options for size, colour etc., so that you can customise for your particular needs. Am very impressed so far.

I've had other bread makers but this is the beat brand I've ever purchased. The bread is delicious and have tried a few of the programmes and they're all good quality breads. Wouldn't be without it now

Rated 1 out of 5 by Fredy67 Bread never baked enough
At the end of machine baking cycle I have to bake a further 20mins in my ordinary oven or I end up with soggy bread. I made sure I followed instructions to the letter.

I returned this item because it was not big enough to make a 1250gr loaf like my old machine does.
