Breville The Custom Loaf Pro Bread Maker BBM800 $379 (Was $439) + Delivery ($0 C&C) @ Harvey Norman

40

They are trying to clear them, maybe a new model is coming out or they're just not selling well.
Bought one myself, old demo model for $350 at CityWest Harvey Norman.
Choice Magazine gave it 80% and recommended model, but not the highest rating model.

    I bought this unit nearly 2 years ago through Myer on Ebay for $255 after discounts.

    You can find it for less than $379 delivered on Ebay right now (at least with Ebay Plus membership) and I wouldn't go supporting Gerry Harvey anyway if I could avoid it.

      And? What’s it like?
      I’ve got an old SD255 Panasonic bought in the UK when I lived there over 12 years ago. Still going strong but I would like a good backup

        The Panasonic won't die, I wouldn't worry bout it

        I'm pretty happy with it. We've probably made about 650 loaves with it so far. The first one we got failed after about a week, but was replaced with a completely new one quickly and easily by Breville/Myer and the replacement hasn't shown any signs of dying since.

        The fruit and nut dispenser doesn't work unless I give the hinges a spray with cooking oil - we very rarely use it so it's not a major problem.

        I have replaced the pan and the paddle once, (pan seal failed first, then later, the collapsible paddle got so stiff that it would no longer collapse despite cleaning as best as I could after each use and it started to lose its non stick coating) but at least the replacement parts were reasonably priced from Breville. We had 2 of the Panasonic bread makers before this one and they both had the non stick coating fail and replacements were going to cost almost as much as a whole new unit.

        Maybe I'm too rough with cleaning the pans, or doing something else wrong since others don't seem to be having these issues - we do make a loaf pretty much every day though which does seem to be uncommon…

    Wasn't there like a $15 bread maker last week?

      I was wondering how many fancy loaves of sourdough I could buy for this. Turns out 47 loaves at $8ea. I think we’d buy one per week or two, but not always $8 fancy ones, often just the $4-5 supermarket ones. So that’s about two years ish?

      Yeah that’s just the raw economics but I know people love making their own bread.

      I’m just grumpy at my own mostly failed attempts at a decent loaf of bread (let alone sourdough), I just opt to buy it, let the experts do it for me. I think it’s good for my mental health.

    I've had this bread maker for about a year and it gives great consistent results. We also use it to mix and raise pizza/pasta/foccacia dough.

    Just make sure you clean the collapsible paddle very well everytime! Filling the tin with water and then using a straw cleaner or similar to clean the paddle as dough gets into all the small openings.

    No way buying from hardly normal, also remember they pocketed the jobkeeper money.
