I have a Kenwood BM whatever it is..
It's very good, not too pricey and quite flexible, i.e.;
- timer function so you can have bread ready when you want it
- different recipe functions for different types of bread, including
- knead only mode so you can be lazy and have the machine do the kneading, why?
- then you can shape the bread as you wish and bake it in your oven (you have one, right? )
I never found anywhere that sold decent sized quantities of ingredients. There were several baking stores that had little packets of different stuff - which I just found annoying. These days I just buy a 10kg packet of breadmix whenver I am in Australia (which is every couple of months; good enough).
Makes great bread, very reliable and has that all important timer function so you can wake up to freshly baked bread. Takes about 5 minutes to prepare the ingredients and about 4 hours to bake.
I didnt think I would ever find anything in common with the Gritty one but there is always a surprise.
That *is* a very good machine and we love it too. With a household of 7 people, we use it daily and sometimes twice a day. Its been making excellent bread for almost 3 years now.
AFAIK, its not available in Hong Kong; this may have changed recently. We had to drag it over from the UK.
