I found this book to be absolutly brilliant. It covers the basics; how to use a bread machine;different flours, grains and other ingredients. Superb for the beginner as well as 150 recipes for the more advanced. This book contains not only bread recipe's, but savoury breads, vegetable breads, rolls buns and pastries, teabreads and cakes. What I found to be most convienent is that the recipe's offer a selection of measuremets to suit everyone (ml/oz/cups). This is one of the best recipe books I have seen and a 'must have' for any Bread Maker Lover.

This book has some great recipes that you would not imagine can be made using a bread machine. The best thing is this book is so easy to follow and gives the ingredience amounts for all size machines.Im not sure how much I would use my machine if i did not have this book.

I bought several bread recipe books when I was given my new breadmaker. Some of these other books were much more expensive, but this book by Jenny Shapter was definitely by far the best. The layout is brilliant, the introduction chapter very compressive, and the recipes are all yummy and worth trying, and they all came out perfectly via my panasonic breadmaker. The sheer size (44) and weight of the volume was surprising, especially given the price - definitely the best value for money.

A major dissappointment! If you're looking for a collection of recipes, where your bread machine does all the work, DON'T buy this book! Despite it's name, this book is not a collection of true bread machine recipes. The majority of recipes only make use of the machine's dough kneading ability...you must then remove the dough, reform and place it in a different pan for baking in a traditional oven. For myself at least, that totally defeats the idea of having a bread machine in the first place.

In three sections, "Flatbreads & Pizzas", "Sourdough Breads" and "Teabreads & Cakes" every recipe requires baking in a regular oven. In the "Sweetbreads" section, 15 of the 22 recipes require dough removal or some form of user intervention. In the "Savoury" section, 10 of the 17 recipes also require this. Even in the "Basic" section, 2 of the 16 recipes require traditional baking, including the French bread, which is surprising, as most machines have a cycle dedicated to this purpose.

Furthermore, if you're into healthy breads using 100% whole wheat and other grains, look elsewhere. You won't find even a basic recipe for 100% whole wheat bread in this book. Virtually all the recipes make extensive use of white flour. Only small amounts of whole grain flours are occasionally used for flavouring.

The book does contain much useful information for baking with a bread machine, but no more so than other bread machine books. If you're looking for a big selection of recipes allowing one to put in the ingredients and come back several hours later for a finished loaf, look elsewhere...there are much better books dedicated to true, 100% bread machine baking.

The Introduction of this book is so informative, I would recommend it to anyone who is learning to bake bread. The principles of how to combine flours, what other ingredients to add, etc, are the same whether baking by hand or with a machine. The recipes are fascinating, and the Intro has enough information to help those who want to experiment and try different variations.

A fab cook book for those of you who own a bread machine. The recipes can be used with any bread maker and the instructions are very easy to follow. The results are beautiful yummy bread recipes that you'll make over and over again.
Highly recommend, and the price is great.

I started to use a bread machine six months ago and haven't bought a commercially made loaf since. Up to now, I have only used the (very good) booklet that came with my Breville machine, and have obtained terrific results. Looking to expand my repertoire of recipes I chose this book, sat down and spent a whole evening reading it, and found it very hard to fault. The introductory section is excellent, covering most of what one needs to know. I certainly gained a lot of knowledge from it. The recipes (not tried yet) are impeccably written, and each and every one gives highly detailed instructions – it would appear hard to go wrong. I think I will enjoy experimenting with many of them. And the book's production is superb, from the easy to follow layout to the outstanding photographs accompanying every recipe.
A minor gripe is the section on starters, which is poorly written – a pity, since this is probably the area where most amateurs get both scared and confused.
A more major annoyance is the absence of a supplier list for ingredients and equipment. Even before I bought this book I have wandered the high street from health food stores to supermarkets looking for ingredients. Now, with even more ingredients mentioned, I am frustrated. It shouldn't be hard to tell us where some of the more obscure ingredients are readily available. And, in the age of the internet, to give web site addresses where we can order them by mail. Okay, it has one rather pathetic page on bread machine suppliers, but that is the easy bit!
This is a five-star book, let down only by the areas mentioned above – and by the fact there is no e-mail address to offer my comments directly to the producers for consideration in future editions.
Having said that, I would still highly recommend The Ultimate Bread Machine Cookbook.
