Morphy Richards 48271
There is nothing quite as heart warming and delicious as the small of baking bread. When I grew up it was quite a common occurence to smell wafts of hot fresh baked loaves wafting down the street. Unfortunately in our rushed madcap existences breadmaking seems to have become a thing of the passed. Although baking bread is not that difficult it can be time consuming. However the new range of breadmakers are so easy to use it's incredibly simple to produce your own fresh baked bread using a machine like the Morphy Richards 48271
First Impressions of the Morphy Richards 48271
The first thing you notice about the bread-maker is that it quite heavy - in fact a beefy 7.5 kgs - it's not too large though - 33cm talls and 37cm wide. It's shiny stainless steel looks quite attractive and well designed. As with most modern bread making machines -it has two main modes - a rapid bake and normal which take about an 75 minutes or about 3 hours for the normal baking. The rapid bake can lead to poor results on some breadmakers but the results seem good with the Morphy Richards 48271. However the machine is almost completely automatic once started- so a little planning should allow the normal baking to be used if you're organised.
There is a timer built in which you can delay for up to 13 hours - the best bit about this you can time the machine to awake you with the smell of freshly baked bread in the morning! It even has a keep warm setting which will keep the bread from going all soggy after baking. There are two loaf sizes on the Morphy Richards 48271 and even two crust settings.
You can make fruit loaves by adding fruit to the machine - you can set up the Morphy Ricahrds 48241 to beep when it is time to add the fruit ( remember you'll need to be in earshot to do this when making fruit breads)
There is a little viewing window to allow you to see the bread baking - useful for checking when you're trying some experimental loaves. All in all the Morphy Richards 48271 is rather a nice breadmaker - it scored 75% in the latest Which Reviews - and they rated it a BEST BUY.
With the continuing rise in food processes including fresh bread it is starting to look quite a good investment - a decent breadmaker like the Accent 48271 can be bought for about £80 and can soon pay for itself if you eat an average amount of bread. Best price onthe Internet seemed to be Amazon less than £80 with Free delivery - more reviews on their site below.
