Only Yeast I ever use.”
I am in Spain and having had a bread maker for around 7 yrs I have always used Dove's farm quick yeast and have never had a bad loaf from it. I can't find similar quick yeast for machines here so family in the Uk send more as I need it or I buy packets when visiting the UK. I keep the closed packet in a small Lock and Lock box in the butter comparment of my fridge and find it will still make a good loaf even for a short time after it has passed the use by date on the packet. The Lock and Lock box keeps moisture from the fridge out of the yeast.

Best yeast I have ever used!”
by Miss bows
this yeast never fails. i would suggest pouring into a pot with a cap, as the contents spills out of the bag.

Used this for many years.”
by Dawn Holmes
I have been using this yeast ever since I got my first breadmaker and will not use any other brand. Every batch is a success. It also works out much cheaper than buying single sachets in the supermarket.

Couldn't be without it”
I make bread with a bread maker almost every day and this is so much better than the fiddly individual packets. Works perfectly every time.

I have kept mine in the freezer for many months with no adverse effects. Always produces good results, which I took for granted until I recently bought a rival product, which has been inconsistent and therefore unreliable!

I always use this yeast in my bread machine and have perfect results every time. Its economical to use. The only downside is that you cant easily find it in shops so keep stocking it Lakeland!

Yeast for bread machines”
by Mrs Hill
I am on my second bread machine...the first one died of exhaustion. I have used this dried yeast for several years and it works very well.

Best dried yeast on the market.”
This really is the best dried yeast product I have ever found. Nothing else comes close.

I use this yeast all the time in my breadmaker and it is perfect both for loaves and rolls. Easy to store once opened and very economical.

So far so good with this, all my bread has risen wonderfully and without the aid of Ascorbic Acid either!

My husband and I use this yeast and have no problem with it. Our loaves turn out beautiful. I cant understand the negative reviews on this item. Please don't be put off:)

reliable, convenient, and great value!”
by Ms Paul
As many others, started off using sachets, but having got a second hand breadmaker have found that this has truly come into it's own, making even the wholemeal loaves much lighter. Have found that it's best to mix the yeast with the flour before adding the wet ingrediants, but that is no problem. I keep it in a sealed container and there's no way it would be around for as long as three months, with all the bread I've been making! Much more economical to use the correct amount of this than sachets, and also more environmentally friendly - less packaging with this. Highly recommended.

Quick and easy!”

Great for bread makers and for hand-made dough - rises well and evenly :)

This has made the largest loaf I've ever made (I set to medium size in my panasonic breadmaker). I had to put the loaf in on its side in my lock and lock bread holder. Yeast fits exactly in the smallest lock and lock container that I got with the assortment pack that I also bought,so should keep much longer than the three months stated. Will be ordering more in the future.

What a find!”
I have been baking my own bread for longer than I care to remember and have used every yeast available (including my own aged yeast plant ) and this beats the spots off all the others. I have NEVER had a failed loaf with this one. I just made an order for another 10 packs so i guess that's testimony to how impressed I am with the product

This yeast is brilliant. I have only just bought my bread maker from Lakeland and this stuff works like a dream. It is easy to use, and so much more cost effective that the sachet alternatives. I would highly recommend this product.

I think I must have been a bit unlucky looking at other reviews. But my yeast was no use at all, and my malt loaf recipe did not rise at all as it has done with sachet yeast from supermarkets. So I'm afraid I will not be trying it again.

A note from the team: I'm sorry that the product didn't live up to your expectations - we'll be in touch shortly.
Great money saving yeast!”
After reading the previous reviews I was hesitant to try this after for many years using a supermarket own brand sachet yeast. However I have found it to work just the same! And it works out cheaper by nearly 40p for the same weight of yeast compared to my previous ownbrand - great if you make lots of bread! Another plus point was for once I can measure out the yeast accurately rather than guessing 1 or 2 sachets while following recipes.

The best yeast I have used, much better than the sachets and far more economical!

After reading the reviews about this product, me too I am surprised to read that this is not a good yeast. I have been buying it from Lakeland for a couple of years and use it for baking in my breadmaking machine without ever having any problems. Furthermore, it really lasts a long time if you store the packet adequately (dry, away from heat/cold and light). Lastly, it is quite well priced.
