I was given the Lekue bread maker for my Birthday but had reservations due to bad experiences with the so called silicone non stick cake pans i had tried before. As a chef I tend to stick to traditional bakeware. So this morning i followed the instructions not expecting to be surprised! It was as easy as it says, mix, knead, prove and bake. My beautiful loaf is cooling ready to show my son who bought the Lekue for me. You have to try the LeKue, its so good and so easy. No more scraping dough off my board and hardly any washing up. (and the loaf smells heavenly!)

A MUST HAVE”
This was a present and was feeling nervous about using it, now I have must say it is brilliant. Using basic bread recipe and fast acting yeast for the first time as well felt it a very experimental project.......but the result is awesome a beautiful loaf, half the trouble and baked to perfection anyone with a traditional palette will love it and the Lekue.......

This review is for an older version of this product
I really have nothing to add to everyone elses comments, this floppy rubber thing is awesome. My friends with breadmaking machines rarely use them so i was reluctant to buy one also my kitchen is tiny so i took the plunge a splashed out on a lekue. It is sooo easy to use, all ingredients in together, add a teaspoon of dried yeast, prove for a little while, put in oven for 30 mins & out comes the lightest loaf, crusty on top. Really great bit of kit!

Great all-in-one baking - no mess”
Useful baking item especially if storage space is an issue as it can be squashed up & doesn't take up much room. Easy to clean. Weigh, mix & bake in the bowl with no mess. Nice shaped loaf but a bit small for large families. Might a larger model be made in the future?

A note from the team: Thanks for placing your review. We've passed on your suggestion for a larger mould to the buyer.
Quickly earns its keep”
This is great for weighing, mixing, and proving. I don't, to be honest, find it that great for baking the loaves for which I use it, but I have baking sheets, tins, and a cloche for that. This still more than recoups the cost and earns its shelf space, and is easily cleaned in the dishwasher.

This is genius! One quick little tip (from me) is to use those 500g packs of flour (already containing yeast, grains, flavours etc) which you just add water to, knead, leave to rise and then cook. Perfect results in this bread maker every time. After use it is easy to clean and can be squashed into the kitchen cupboard. I am so happy with it as just didn't have sufficient space on my kitchen counter for a machine bread maker.

great bit of kit”
We were not sure about this but checked out you tube and changed our minds and went and got one. The booklet is rubbish, pick your favourite recipe and use that. You measure everything into the bowl, knead in the bowl and bake in the bowl so the kitchen is clean. Our electric bread maker has now been put away and it will be a long time until it comes back out as this little bit of kit is wonderful.

As other reviews have sai, ignore the recipe book and use your normal mixtures, this is very easy to use and saves on washing up and storage, I took it on holiday with me last week and used it with bread mixes. Only one niggle for me - when kneading, as you lift the dough it sticks to the bowl and lifts it off the counter so you have to knead with one hand and hold the bowl down with the other, so not quite as easy as kneading on a worktop, but a lot less messy.

This is a fabulous piece of kit! I ignored the instruction booklet and made a loaf of bread using my own recipe. The loaf was crispy on the outside and soft and chewy in the middle. A warm slice spread with butter is just delicious. Fantastic results with very little effort. Marvellous.

Great for Gluten Free”
Like other reviewers I was unsure whether to purchase this product. I'm so glad I did - my son is coeliac and he is thrilled with his delicious crusty bread. It works particularly well with the White Mix available on prescription for Coeliacs.Easy to use and fabulous results every time. My daughter a student is now going to purchase one for Uni. Well done Lakeland a winner especially for Coeliacs.

I was sceptical.....”
I was really sceptical about this product before I brought it.... With the intention if it didn't work it would go straight back... But it is brilliant! For someone who has never made bread before it is perfect and sooo easy! My husband was shocked at the price for a piece of silicone.... But is now very quiet whilst eating the bread!!!!! Must try this product!!

I must echo other reviewers: I was sceptical about whether this would be useful or effective, especially given it is not cheap. All my concerns were groundless as it is brilliant! So far I have successfully made loaves from packets of bread mix and from scratch, and even a foccacia, all with perfect results. Mixing is easy in it because it doesn't stick round the bowl, kneading is great because the bowl flexes with you as you knead, resting works perfectly because there is no need to oil or flour the bowl first, and it bakes perfectly. All in the same container. And cleaning is so easy.

very pleasantly surprised”
I was unsure about this product but decided to give it a go. Excellent crust on the bread, making a very tasty loaf. So easy to slip dough in and out of it too.

Brilliant Bread Maker”
Bought this and wondered if it was just an expensive piece of silicone, but having used it to make several spelt loaves this weekend I've found it to be a brilliantly designed. I weighed everything, then mixed it proved it and cooked it, all in this cleverly designed silicone bowl. No mess and then it goes in the dishwasher :)

Works a treat.”
This is a convenient timesaver and produces excellent bread with a good crust. Only problem is the manual, which you should throw away and just use the ordinary bread recipes.

Brilliant Time-Saving Product”
I was a bit sceptical about this, as it was expensive, but it is such a time saver. We make bread by hand and you can do it all in this; mixing, kneading, proving and baking... the loaf just slips out and is a good shape, and it cuts down on so much washing up. It is excellent to use with bread mixes, thoroughly recommend it.
