VINE VOICETOP 500 REVIEWERon 19 April 2012
Having owned three bread machines, currently a Panasonic, I have seen a few different manuals and the recipes within them. Usually, you get one or two white breads, a wholemeal, perhaps a fruit or seed bread and a pizza. With some, you may get a few cakes if the machine either mixes or bakes them (not all will).

This goes rather further and adds a much wider selection and not only of breads. It has the advantage for some in that it was written for the British user and uses both metric and Imperial systems for larger ingredient quantities, plus the usual spoon measurements for lesser quantities. Obviously, it cannot offer specific instruction for any brand of machine and leaves that to the user. For example, although most machines work on the principle of wet ingredients first followed by the dry, some work in the reverse order. It is important that you use the correct sequence for your machine. Also, options such as those for crust colour or adding a glaze, are not included and left to the user.

It is not as comprehensive as some in my collection and is rather less full of advice, hints and such but it is a small book and what it has is reasonable and proportionate. At its price, it probably will not be bettered.

If you want more recipes, advice and variety you can have them all, at a price, but you have to accept that the book will be for the US market and you will need to contend with all the related issues that will bring.

Good value and variety in its content.
