Morphy Richards Manual Breadmaker 48326 Breadmaker : Just as good as the last one

The “easy to follow” instructions did not explain every aspect of the breadmaker in use for a novice like me.

This was a replacement for my previous breadmaker, also a morphy richards. Just as good as the last one.

My old twin blade breadmaker used to make light fluffy bread so when it gave up the ghost i purchased a new twin blade machine via amazon. After 9 disastrous loaves i sent it back and ordered this one. I was a bit sceptical as it only has one blade and the pan is about 5cm shorter. However, as soon as it arrived, i put in my original recipe/quantities and left it to do its’ work. The results weren’t bad so today i used the sandwich loaf recipe which was supposed to give a light fluffy loaf. It used slightly less flour and 20% less water. Light and fluffy – just right for sandwiches.

Bought this in good faith after reading recommendation anticapitating all singing and dancing machine only to find out when reading the instruction book that a number of programs were not applicable to this model. This only became apparent when reading instruction book which was inside the box. I feel cheated or ripped off to put it mildly.

Purchased from amazon warehouse deal for half normal price. The description said ‘used’ however, it was hard to see whether it had been used or not. It was very clean and appeared brand new and was packaged in its original packaging with morphy richards box. I immediately did a test loaf as per instructions as the machine was set to do a standard loaf for demo purposes i imagine. All appeared to be as it should except i used malted brown flour and the loaf came out a bit solid with a very hard crust (not chewable). To be fair the standard loaf recipe says white bread flour so can’t blame the machine. It pays to read all the instructions before switching the bread maker on. It loses one star because the kneading paddle comes off too easily. When removing the loaf from the pan the paddle was embedded inside the loaf causing a big hole once it is prized out with a knife. The only reason i bought a new machine was because i had inadvertently thrown half a loaf away and had not noticed that the paddle was missing from the pan.

Good easy to use machine with good instructions.

This is a good all rounder bread maker. It has no ‘bells and whistles’. It makes bread pure and simple. I have had a couple of disasters with it as i tried it out with me not looking at the instructions properly and not using warm enough water so it was my own fault. The blade can be a little hard to get out so i have had to use a pair of tongs but it does not come loose, well not so far and i am expecting it to carry on making tasty, beautiful bread. I love the crust option as i like it pale and the dough it makes for cooking in the oven is superb.

I have had a morphy richards 48324 breadmaker for a few years now, but it decided it wanted to go into retirement recently so i had to let it go. As i only use the basic white bread programme and occasionally the cake mix one, i decided that i didn’t require the all singing, all dancing 48324 again and bought one of these instead. Unfortunately i then discovered that it does not have the drop down blade and i had to buy that as an extra; it fits, but it is a bit loose, so keeps ending up in the bread anyway. Update: march 2015 – one of my friends gave me a loaf from her panasonic bread machine to try and i discovered why everyone has been going on about how wonderful they are and worth the extra money compared to such as the morphy richards. So, i’m afraid that the m/r 48326 has gone to the local church jumble sale and i have ordered a panasonic sd-2500 wxc bread maker. I would recommend that you do the same (i paid £84 for it from amazon, but i have seen it as low as £78; may be cheaper on the marketplace).

Hit and miss with the outcome don’t know if i’m doing something wrong.

Bought this when an old one broke. It’s not the most expensive or fully featured (note: this is not the morphy richards one with the fold-down paddle) but what it does it does well. Have used it for white bread, wholemeal bread, a few speciality ones (cheese and herb, olives, etc) and.

I only bought this model because my old machine wore out and was no longer manufactured. This machine took the same size bread pans that i still had and used in my old machine. On the whole it is a good machine, works well and cooks the bread as well as any other. I just think the lid/top is rather over sized for some unknown reason. I find the large lid does make removal of the bread pan slightly awkward. I am happy with the machine but would probably choose a different design next time.

Reasons for choice: a previous m-r breadmaker worked satisfactorily;replacement bread pans readily available when seal/bearings wear and pan leaks. Reasons for star rating: pro:considerably quieter than our previous russell hobbs one;cons: rather large, takes up quite a bit of space; loaf forms round and under mixing blade, making removal of the blade difficult.

It was as good as i had been led to expect by ?which’s comments.

Present for my mother so she can cook fresh bread every day.

Delivered within timescale, better value than the 48325 where you pay another £27 for a nut dispenser, an internal light and 6 more (unnecessary) programs. I use breadmakers for gluten free loaves. This one has a gluten free program but i use my own recipe on a basic program. The packaging is misleading in that it implies a recipe booklet containing 40 recipes is included. There isn’t one – the recipes are inside the instruction booklet. I contacted customer services who were unhelpful. However an e-mail to the ceo resulted in an apology and a free recipe book so well done that man. The first loaf came out superb and so have subsequent loaves. This is my 3rd morphy richards breadmaker and they’ve always been a cut above the rest – i’m sure this will be no exceptiona tip for all bread machine users , mix all the liquids first with a hand blender, put that into the breadmaker pan then add 2/3rds the flour and other ingredients (except yeast) and then top up with the other 1/3rd of flour finally add the yeast on the top and gently fork it in. The result will be a much better and consistent mix.
