Q & As


Kenwood BM450 Rapid Bake Bread Maker, Stainless Steel 4.3 5 40 40
Good quiet machine, but a bit heavy I am very pleased with my new bread machine. It is so much quieter than the last two I had, arrived promptly, was a reasonable price. Downsides I have found are: quite heavy product, would benefit from delayed timer on the dough programme and a means of securing the power cable to the unit. My results from the machine have all been excellent, but I have been using a bread machine for 10+ years and I haven't yet tried any of the recipes in the book provided. 26 March 2014
Just a few niggles I have never made bread before but overall have been pleased. A couple of bad loaves. One because I think I got the settings wrong and one which for an unknown reason looked like a ski slope. But my overall problem is the kneader which remains in the bread every time so I have to dig it out. 08 March 2014
good looking design Works well and looks good. Despite setting pale crust, on some programmes it comes out over baked and hard. Need to experiment to find the best overall programme. 28 January 2014

Brilliant breadmaker Looks stylish and produces wonderful bread. Tried about 4 different loaves and all have turned out perfectly. Good value for money and does exactly what it says on the tin! 31 December 2013
BM450 history The BM450 was bought in December 2009. No problems with the bread at 2 loaves per week. However the first bread pan leaked via the bearings at 11 months. 2 months later the drive 'pins' in the machine, that connect to the bread pan, disintegrated. I bought spare parts and fitted them with difficulty. At 2 years the second bread pan bearings seized and at just under three years the third bread pan bearings also seized. Fortunately due to the 1 year guarantee and a complaint, all bread pans were free. I ordered a new bread pan in November 2012, but cancelled when informed that they would not be available for two months. A further call from Kenwood stated that due to problems replacement bread pans would be available from March 2013. 03 February 2013
A convenient and tasty product Last minute Christmas request that arrived within 48 hours of our online order and its been baking the best, fluffiest, yummiest bread / bread rolls every day since ... It is so easy to operate, totally basic - just follow the recipe, put all the ingredients in the dish and Voila - Fresh Bread. You can even prepare bread rolls in the Bread Maker and finish them off in the oven. It is stylish and quite compact so sits nicely on the bench or in the kitchen cupboard. Totally great product and I can't rate it highly enough... Gotta go - gotta bake some bread... 17 January 2013
