The Kenwood Bread Maker BM450 Review

We’re going to start off our Kenwood Bread Maker BM450 review by talking briefly about the design because this is the first thing that really stood out to us. This aluminium bread maker has a brushed stainless steel exterior which makes it look fantastic in the modern kitchen.

It is compact and slim so it can be easily stored in any type of kitchen. At the top of the machine you will find a touch screen which is what you will use for navigating all of the different programs and settings. The screen is very responsive and incredibly stylish.

The final design feature that we really liked was the built in viewing window. We found this really helpful when it came to monitoring our bakes. Overall, we have to say that we absolutely love the design of the Kenwood Bread Maker BM450. Now, let’s talk a little bit about the features of this model.

There are a total of 15 built in programs and 5 personal programs to choose from. We tested out all 15 programs that are built in and we got consistently good loaves every single time without fail. The 5 personal programs allow you to create custom settings for your own recipes which is a nice feature.

One of the additional features that we really liked with this bread maker is the inclusion of a rapid bake setting. With this setting you are able to bake your loaf within 58 minutes which was perfect for baking in a rush.

We were also able to benefit from overnight baking thanks to the built in 15 hour delay timer which we used on several occasions with no issues at all. The exterior of this machine is cool to the touch, even when in use so there is no risk of burns occurring.

Finally, when it came to cleaning out the Kenwood Bread Maker BM450, we were really surprised by how easy it was. We suspected this was due to the fact that the pan inside is coated so that it is non-stick.

The only downside with this bread maker is that it is one of the more expensive options. However, we absolutely feel that this one is worth the money and really would highly recommend it.
