    I've had a breville bread maker for about 6 years. The 1st year I used it a fair bit but then found myself eating a lot more bread :/
    Then we lost the paddle that mixes so we didn't use it.... Still kept it thinking we would just buy a replacement part.... Nearly 5 years later and I finally bought a new paddle.... But still haven't made bread! Sooo yeah... Mines a good paper weight :/

    I have a breadmaker, Breville, really happy with it. I use it less for normal bread these days but use it often for when we want a crusty loaf with soup, or hot cross buns, pizza dough etc. And really handy for fruit loaf.
    Mine also makes jam/marmalade so i use it all the time for that when i have a bit of leftover fruit. It makes a couple of medium jars at a time and is so easy!

    It is very large and takes up a lot of bench/cupboard space.

    What is laucke?

    I have cupboard space.

    I'm just thinking how I would keep the bread "fresh"

    I was thinking an electric knife. I have a bread knife, but maybe I need the electric one.
