Cheap bread machines in Lidl

If anyone's interested!

They're doing bread machines for £25 in Lidl - we bought one last week, as we'd been planning on getting one for a while.  It's blooming brilliant - makes a big loaf too - plus cake, jam, dough, etc.  Much better than the £100+ my ex kept when I left  :lol:

So if you're thinking about getting one, I'd recommend these as a "can't really go wrong for the money" buy.

Sounds great - never been very successful making my own bread (usually as hard as rock) and often thought about getting a machine but have been put off by the price

Do you use fresh ingredients in the machine or one of those dried bread mixes?
Starting from scratch............

I've tried the mixes but prefer to use fresh ingredients.

Well, I like plain old white bread - the recipe I've been using is:

500ml tepid water with 1tbsp dried yeast (not the express instant stuff)
1.5 tsp sea salt
1.5 tsp sugar
700g bread flour

Add to the (Lidl) machine in that order, hit programme 1, and three and a half hours later, you get fabulous bread.  This one has some slices missing  :lol:



When I get bored with that, I'll play about with adding pesto, sun dried toms, olives, herbs, stuff like that.  I had it all worked out on my marital bread machine, but ex-hubby got that!

I love my bread machine.  You know exactly what is in your bread and can make some very tast variations.  The only downside for me is that using dried yeast means less of a yeasty smell, which is more than made up for by the variety and ease of use.   Favourites at the moment are sun dried tomato, cheese and herb and sunflower seed.  :D
Cheese makes everything better.

Looks yummy Mel.  I'd be making black olive bread one day, rosemary bread the next day, then black olive and rosemary mixed ...

Doesn't it use lots of electric?
Self-sufficient in rasberries and bindweed. Slug pellets can be handy.

It's 800W. Probably uses less leccy than heating up the oven...  It's only hot for the hour it takes to bake.

heating element on for an hour, 800w = 0.8kWh

1 kWh = ~10p (think thats what my leccy costs)

so cost about 8p to bake a loaf! add on the ingredients cost and a cost per loaf for the purchase of the machine, its probably still a bit dearer than buying a loaf, but that aint the point is it i suppose :D
