Review of Kenwood Rapid Bake BM250 breadmaker
GH Kenwood Rapid Bake BM250 breadmaker

Viewing window. Delay timer. 3 loaf sizes. Keep warm. 3 crust colours. Measuring cup and measuring spoon. Programmes: basic, wholewheat, sweet, French, packet mix, gluten free, dough, pasta dough, cake, jam. Options: rapid bake. Prog times: white 3 hours 25 mins, wholemeal 3 hours 48 mins based on large sized loaf with medium crust colour.


The basic white loaf from this model has a smooth, domed crust and even colour on both top and sides but has a slightly salty taste. The wholemeal loaf is good but quite small and the texture a little dense. The rapid white loaf has an open, cake-like texture but is a good shape and colour. The display is hard to see and there is no programme guide on the machine.  We found dough gets caught under and around the blade easily. Approx size of white loaf: 18 x 17 x 12cm
