Q & As

Rated 3.2 out of 5 by 23 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Poor quality bread The paddle comes off during the bread making process causing the loaf to have an inverted top and very heavy base - inedible. Tried all the tricks and checked ingredients multiple times. But I note from other reviews is that this is a known issue but with no solution. I am returning it and will go for another brand. Very disappointed 12 May 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Poor quality I am returning my recently purchased breadmaker. The paddle always gets stuck in the bread no matter how I try to stop it. The bread has never been correctly shaped. Today's was particular misshapen. I am an experienced home breadmaker and have tried the remedial suggestions in the instructions. There is nothing wrong with the ingredients, the machine does not mix and cook properly. I an going back to Panasonic. I would not recommend buying the Kenwood. 26 January 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Disappointment This was a kind, generous and much anticipated present from my lovely mother-in-law. I've had this bread make for 18 months now. It was bad news from the start. Upon giving the machine it's first clean, the font on the buttons rubbed off, which led to lots of guess work about what size or type of loaf I was making. Then 1 year in it stopped working altogether- no longer able to rotate the inner paddle to make a loaf. I thought the tin was faulty- so purchased another- but unfortunately it did not fix the problem. I subsequently ended up with 1 faulty bread maker and 2 useless tins. I shall not be purchasing a "Kenwood" product again. Poorly manufactured- my next model will be the Panasonic SD-ZB2502BXC. 27 December 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Faulty Product We bought this bread maker just over a month ago, but every time we have used it the paddle has come off in the bread. We finally got around to contacting Kenwood Customer Services who did not seem at all surprised, in fact agreed that this will happen and there was nothing they could advise to stop this happening. They were quite dismissive. Needless to say we are returning the bread maker today and will look for another brand. 05 November 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by new breadmaker This breadmaker has replaced the Kenwood one that we had for about 7 years. We have been making a similar loaf - light wholemeal - to the one we used to make regularly with our first machine. This loaf is not as good. The flavour is fine but the bread is heavy and the outside of the bread is too crusty, even though we have it set on the lowest setting. The white loaf we tried is good, however. The machine is quieter and is quite stylish but we miss our old one....... 16 January 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product! I got this for my husband for his Christmas and we have both fallen in love with it. Th machine is easy to use and comes with a great recipe book for different bread ideas. The results have been fantastic and with so little effort from us. Couldn't recommend enough. 15 January 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Kenwood bm260 Unfortunately this bread maker was returned. Although it says fan assisted it is far from that. Very disappointed and the bread got stuck in the machine. 12 January 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good value. Good value for the price.My only criticism is that loaves seem to be with harder crusts than the settings denote.. 27 December 2012
