Q & As

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 49 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent purchase. I bought this on a friend's recommendation and it has lived up to my expectations. It is easy to use and bakes lovely bread. Although quite large it does not dominate the kitchen since it looks good. 05 February 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Fuses Blown I purchased this in October and everything was fine - until suddenly it started to blow the fuses in my house! Just plugging it in would blow the fuses immediately. Phoned JL and they are replacing it with a panasonic machine. Really disappointed but excellent customer service. Thank you. Will await the arrival of my new machine tomorrow. 28 January 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Bread Was a bit unsure if this bread maker would be as good as my previous one, but I am pleasantly surprised! Every loaf has been light airy and tasty and the machine looks good in my kitchen. Would recommend to others as it does the job of bread making and makes it simple with use of timer delay. 24 December 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Bread Maker A very easy to use and pleasing machine. Has produced great results and offers several differing recipes. I have had to replace the paddle and bowl, which was a bit of a hassle, but overall I cannot fault this equipment. 04 October 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Glad I took the plunge Ummm'd and ahhhhh'd about buying this but really glad I did. Made the basic bread as per the instructions and it's nice but quite dense. After experimenting with the ratio's I have managed to come up with a recipe that suits me down to the ground. Really enjoy fresh bread everyday now. Have also made the pizza dough a couple of times and it comes out great with no messing and taken the basic bread recipe out prior to it baking and made bread rolls. Can't imagine eating shop bought bread again. 02 September 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Poor quality After just three uses the bread maker started tripping the house safety electrical system each time the programme changed from one phase to another. John Lewis promptly changed the appliance for another of the same. On the first use of the replacement steam emanated from the appliance although the loaf turned out ok. On the second attempted use it was not possible to programme the bread maker so I returned it and exchanged it for a Panasonic appliance. Very disappointing as Kenwood used to have such a good name. 19 June 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Very useful product I have been using a bread maker over many years and I am very happy with the bread made by the Kenwood especially that there is a lot of choices re the size, colour etc. Unfortunately it is quite noisy, apart from the end beep which is not very loud. 18 June 2014
