Product Description

Product Description

Baking healthy, homemade bread couldn't be easier with the Kenwood BM450 Break Maker. The Kenwood BM450 has 15 programmes for bread, doughs, cakes and jams, and a rapid bake setting for a fresh loaf of bread in as little as 58 minutes. The additional 5 "personal" programme settings allow you to set your own timings for each of the stages involved in bread making (pre-heat, kneading, rising and baking). Choose between large, medium or small loaves (500 g, 750 gram or 1 kg) depending on your individual needs.

The BM450 has a stylish design with a stainless steel and black glass finish, touch sensitive controls and an LCD panel, all of which is easy to wipe clean. The ingredients dispenser has a 125 gram capacity and automatically opens and dispenses ingredients at the appropriate time during the bread-making cycle. For added convenience, the internal oven light and viewing window make it possible to inspect your bread-making progress.

This bread maker also comprises of a 12-hour delay timer, 1-hour keep warm function, convection fan for crisper loaves, power failure memory and the Kenwood kneader, which has been designed to remove easily from the loaf without leaving a large hole and also helps to incorporate all of the ingredients from the corners of the pan.

Be inventive with the Kenwood BM450 Bread Maker and create more.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding quality breadmaker 26 Aug 2009
    By kymara VINE VOICE
    Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
    Bread machines have been around for some time now, and the technology is evolving.
    This machine differs from older bread makers in a few distinct ways:
    * The mixer paddle does not tend to get stuck in the loaf when you remove the bread from the tin
    * The mixer paddle does not make a large gaping hole in the bread loaf (It's much thinner, and has less of a vertical curvature than paddles on older machines I have used)
    * A round tin is available as an additional extra so you can enjoy different shaped loaves

    Other features which perhaps not all breadmachines have are:
    * Incredibly good looks - those pictures don't do it justice
    * A light to see inside through the hinged lid, without lifting it and jeopardising your loaf
    * Very good quality and comprehensive recipe booklet
    * Genuinely good rapid bake setting (creates well risen loaves in less than an hour)
    * A large dispenser to add nuts or fruit partway through the cycle (added from the beginning, they get broken into too small pieces by the mixing action)

    And of course, it has all of the standard features like a timer setting so that you can set your bread to be ready as you wake in the morning, cake programmes, jam programmes, and the ability to select different sizes and crust colour. If you'd be interested to see the recipes which come with the maker they are available free of charge online from the Kenwood site, I googled for 'kenwood bm450 recipes'.

    As a breadmaker it really does an excellent job, the bread it's produced for me has been flawless. As with all new technology I needed to read the instructions first, though the programming of the cycle was not disimilar to other makers I have used.

    As other reviewers have noted it is rather large, Amazon have provided dimension in the product specification so you can see if it would fit your kitchen.

    I hope you find this helpful in making your bread maker decision!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent top quality breadmaker 6 Nov 2009
    Verified Purchase
    I bought this Kenwood breadmaker to replace a Morphy Richards one that had died. As I wanted to use it on a regular basis, I wanted a top quality one and, although it was at the expensive end of those available, it has not disappointed me with the build quality and lovely looks.

    I read many reviews before committing to buy and was a little dubious about one review saying the control buttons were indecipherable. They are not..... the button symbols are pretty logical, so don't be put off. The main ones are a book symbol for the program number, a scales symbol for size of loaf with three choices and a slice of bread symbol for colour of loaf, again with three choices. So with these I set it to make a white loaf within 5 minutes of getting it out of the box and it was perfect, as have been all the other loaves I have tried.

    A lovely feature is that it allows you to extend the cooking time at the end and I'm just starting to practise with the custom made programmes with good results

    The only thing I can fault it on is that the touch buttons are very sensitive, so don't brush your arm on it when setting up!!

    4.0 out of 5 stars Great bread, frustrating interface 10 April 2010
    Verified Purchase
    First the good news: the bread from this machine is consistently fantastic. We most often use a Jennie Shapter recipe for potato-starch bread and it comes out fluffy, light and tasty even when we sometimes muddle the recipe.

    The breadpan is a short but deep unit that provides a "tall" slice of bread. The pan is well coated and baked bread drops-out cleanly. There is one central paddle with a clever axle design that ensures that it remains attached to the pan after baking and does not get trapped inside the bread.

    The display is clear and easy to read and the machine allows custom programs to be created and stored.

    Unfortunately the glass-fronted touch-sensitive user interface can be difficult to use. It is incredibly stylish and could have been designed by Apple, but is frustratingly inconsistent in response. Sometimes a heavy press is required to activate a function and on other occasions an inadvertent brush against the START button prematurely activates a cooking program. Little wonder there is a override ON-OFF rocker switch hidden around the back!

    The ingredients dispenser claims to hold 75 ml but when filled to capacity with moist fruit it tends to jam closed, resulting in fruitless endeavours. Ha.

    However in its basic function, making bread, this machine excels.

    Update: September 2010

    We bought this example in November 2009 and after 10 months daily use the shaft in the bread pan has failed. The shaft appears to have been retained in the pan gasket by two washers which have disintegrated. The bread machine itself it still working well, so we have bought a replacement pan ( 18 ) and have contacted Kenwood to determine whether they consider the pan to be a consumable item or covered by warranty.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Clever Kenwood 24 Aug 2009
    By J. H. Bretts VINE VOICE
    Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
    This is a top of the range bread-maker. Is it worth the extra expenditure?

    Appearance - good. Brushed steel and dark glass. Solid - but big. You need to be sure that you'll use it a lot if kitchen space is an issue.

    Instructions and recipe book - both adequate, though the instruction manual would benefit from better presentation. Larger print would be helpful for some crucial information - like how to cancel a programme you didn't mean to choose! Recipes varied. Great to have 3 loaf-size options for all recipes.

    The control panel -intimidating initially. There are a lot of options and some aren't self-explanatory. It's easy to make mistakes until you're used to it. After that, it's fine, even straightforward.

    In general - everything works just as it should. The bread pan and kneader are satisfactorily solid and completely non-stick. The dispenser - which releases nuts, dried fruit, etc. - works a treat. You can use the internal light to see how the bread is doing and the kneading process is acceptably quiet. The timer is easy to use - but doesn't operate on all programmes including the dough programme. (No setting it early to make pizza or bread dough later - but fine for loaves to be finished in the bread-maker.)

    Results - great bread every time so far!

    Why you should buy this machine
    If you think that you will make lots of different kinds of bread and want to be able to programme the machine to suit non-standard recipes - this is the machine for you.

    Why you shouldn't
    If your kitchen is on the small side and you are - generally speaking - going to make basic white or wholemeal bread - go for something smaller, simpler and cheaper.
