Thanks for the further info - probably not worth me making a special trip then as my machine does 2.5lb or 3lb, so I'd have to use more than 1 per loaf and I don't think that would really work out any cheaper than my current individual ingredients
However, I made a 2.5lb loaf yesterday and it's very hard to cut (as much because of the height as the holes from the paddles) - plus it's disappearing at an incredible rate of knots :eek: If I can work out how to use the machine for 'dough only' for the 3lb size (I assume it's likely to have this function, but need to explore) and then split it between 3x1lb loaf tins and bang them into my oven, can anyone advise what I need to do once I take the dough out of the machine please? I assume they'd need another rise once in the tins, as splitting and knocking into shape to get it into the tins is likely to cause it to drop And how long would I cook them at what temperature?

Disaster has struck! My Cookworks bread maker bought from Argos for £22-99 about 18mths ago has finally given up working. The paddle became stuck in the pan about 3 or 4 months ago but it still worked till today. The pan comes out but the bread isn't even at the dough stage. Does anyone know where I can get spares as the instruction book just refers you to Argos and the guarrantee has run out!
Any suggestions gratefully received.
Had my Sainsbury's delivery today- mostly household stuff. Off to update my signature.

When dough cycle finishes, take dough out onto a floured surface, divide how wanted, I sometimes do baguettes or rolls instead of loaves.
Place onto/into tins, cover loosely with a teatowel or loose carrier bag, leave to rise whilst oven is heating , then bake as normal.
I set my BM on timer so the dough is done for when I get up, then I shape etc and bake off all before the Economy 7 electric switches off, (all electric here).

Spent £6 yesterday on bread(4) and 12 pints of milk, the kids have eaten a loaf and a half of the bread already :eek: and almost 4 pints of milk :eek:.
NSD here today, tea is sausage,egg,chips and peas in various forms (i had shouts of "i dont like peas" "i dont like egg" and DD will not eat either chips or egg so she is having sausage sarnies so that will be 2 loafs of bread in a day and a half :eek:.
Am thinking it might it be worth my while making bread instead of buying it but cant really afford an expensive breadmaker I have tried freecycle but no joy as yet, so my question is are the cheaper breadmakers ok ?
