Morphy Richards Compact Graphite Bread Maker £23.00 @ Amazon
Is there anything better than the smell of freshly baked bread? Why not put the question to the test with this Morphy Richards Compact Graphite Bread Maker from Amazon for £23.00 down from £99.00 – a 77% saving.
No, this is not a dream, no, your mother didn't turn up over night (if she ever made bread anyway) and no, your toddler isn't a genius master chef. It's a bread maker. Set the night before, started while you were snoozing away, and beeping to tell you breakfast is ready. A beautiful dream, you say?
Well, this Morphy Richards can make at least that dream come true.
This particular model makes either a 1lb or a 1.5lb bread, and has 10 baking programmes to choose from including cakes and jams. There are three crust settings – light, medium and dark – and an 'add ingredients' signal if you want to try variations such as cheese bread, herb bread or pretty much anything else.
It has a 13-hour programmable timer, for presetting and just so you're not left short, it comes with measuring cup and spoon and a recipe and instruction book.
An element of it that intrigues me is the unique collapsible kneading blade for, they claim, the perfect shaped loaf – rather than having to gouge out a piece of the middle to get the blade out. Now that sounds perfect to me!
Although on Amazon, this is actually being sold by Ryness Lighting & Electrical, and will cost you an additional £1.20 in postage – still, in my book, a bargain for fresh, home made, preservative free bread.
