Is it worth buying a Lidl baking machine?

review of a lidel bread maker

Recently, a bread maker was available in Lidl again (I showed it at Instagram). I was encouraged to buy a vending machine by the very high price of good quality bread in bakeries, as well as the usual laziness and time saving. I am a fan of dark bread, but sometimes I eat and white. Everything within reason. I like to experiment with bread and add different grains (I've never seen bread with chia and sunflower seeds anywhere, and I can do it in a machine).

You can add your favorite seeds to bread, e.g. chia, linseed or sunflower seeds. The experiment was to add sliced ​​garlic. The bread came out delicious.

When I saw the Silver Crest bread baking machine in Lidl's offer (I have a dryer with this ionization [from 4]. I praise it very much!) I decided to buy it.

Bread baking machine - how does it work?

Our beginnings were difficult. The operating instructions supplied with the device are tragic. Fortunately, the Internet came to my aid. The bread baking process is very simple - we pour a certain amount of water and a bread baking mixture (those from Lidl are quite good. I set a different weight for baked bread, because if I set them according to their recommendations, the bread is not risen and sticky).

During baking, it is possible to add seeds or dried fruit (we will be informed by a sound signal). In the machine it is possible to bake bread, wholemeal bread, kneading dough for pasta, pizzas and many other possibilities. Currently, I used only the first program (bread baking) and the Express program, which I used to bake bread for breakfast. Next year I will definitely make strawberry jam. I can not wait!

After connecting the machine to the power, choose the program that interests us (using the first button). Then set the weight. For me it is usually 1000 g (thanks to which the bread is not lumpy and sticky!). Finally, set the crunchiness of the skin. I usually use lightly or medium baked. We pour a certain amount of warm, but not hot water (with a mixture of Lidl 350 ml). And pour the mixture (500 g). The device comes with a measuring cup for water, as well as a measuring cup for seeds and others. Click the 4 button. The machine will start heating (with program No. 1) or mixing (with express program). It is a good idea to keep the toaster lid open during mixing because steam is deposited on it.

What about mixers?

I always remove the mixers during the final mixing phase. Once for a try I left them to the very end. It was not a good idea, because after baking we barely took it out. Before rising, I remove the agitators from the machine and put the mass evenly on the bread. Thanks to this, it grows evenly and is visually prettier.

It is better to remove the stirrers from the machine before baking the bread, because it is difficult to remove them from the loaf later.

When buying a bread machine, we have to take into account the fact that there are holes in the bottom of the mixer. We will not avoid this. However, they are not so big, when the bread is grown it does not upset so much.


I am happy with the purchase, although at first I was furious - I could not set up the machine and the bread came out of medium quality. After a few uses, I can say that it is much better. You have to use the trial and error method. There are many recipes for different types of bread on the internet, so you can go crazy wol

    Do you have any tested recipes for bread?

      Yes! I have been baking the same bread on fresh yeast for years, every time I add different additions: sunflower, chia, linseed, and sometimes roasted onions, dried tomatoes or garlic. Talk to me on Instagram and I'll send you a photo of the recipe 🙂

      I am already buying 3 bread machine from Lidl, I am very happy. We bake bread every day. The first experiences were not easy. By trial and error, we have come to the baking of good bread. Now only the flour from the selected mill and it's ok.

        So cool! I still have the same bread maker from the photo, but I think I will have to replace it with time, because I can see that the hooks have scratched the bowl a bit and I don't know if it will rust. Nothing like this is happening yet. Ps. Share with us your recipe for your delicious bread 🙂

    This year I bought a bread baking machine in Lidl and I'm generally sooooo happy ... but do you also shake your bowl and years on the side walls? I try to insert it in such a way that it doesn't move forward and backward only sideways, but unfortunately I have "scrubbed" walls (the shorter ones). ?

      You need to press it lightly until a characteristic "click" appears. She will always move slightly sideways as she works, but in my opinion you do not press her properly - in my baking machine this does not happen.

    Recently I bought a toaster and the bread tastes better than from a bakery.

      It is true. For me, a huge plus is that you can add your favorite additions. I love bread with lots of grains - linseed, sunflower, chia. I haven't found bread in any bakery that would meet my expectations in 100%. And now I do it myself 🙂

    I also recently bought this bread maker 🙂 I have baked 2 breads for now and I have a question - maybe someone knows ... When can I add some ingredients to the dough: bran, seeds, etc .. According to the instructions, a signal should appear and the display should show this inscription flashes briefly, only during the signal? I did not manage to run up during the signal and later it was not ..

    • dpblogpl dpblogpl 30 July 2018 / 11: 06

      Do you have exactly the same bread maker as me? If so, when the beep sounds (during the last mixing on the left), then you can add seeds and other bread additions. For me there is no inscription, but I saw that there is a newer version of the baking oven (unfortunately I do not know. I still have the same model). I recommend adding finely chopped garlic or dried tomatoes to the bread 🙂

      • Avatar Niura 30 July 2018 / 15: 41

        I don't know if it's exactly the same bread maker. Mine has 2 round lens in the lid. I bought it a week ago in lidl 🙂 And it is said that the word "ADD" appears in it to indicate that you can add something.
        I will try the garlic recipe, I wouldn't even think of it 🙂
        And how does your skin browning work? I baked wheat bread with medium browning and the bread was pale in advance

        • dpblogpl dpblogpl 30 July 2018 / 17: 15

          I saw this is a newer version. It's a bit different than mine, so unfortunately I won't help you with its service, because I just don't know it 🙁

          Instead of garlic, you can also add finely chopped white onion and have onion bread 🙂 experiment, because here you are limited only by your imagination. I also often add a mixture of grains - pumpkin, sunflower and chia. I also made bread with walnuts (very interesting taste). If you add a little sugar or agave syrup and dried fruit, you can get sweet bread for morning toast 🙂

          I set the highest skin crust in my toaster, because the average for me is too pale, I like very baked bread, crunchy 🙂

    How long does heating up with the 1 program take? A few minutes passed and the machine did not turn on. I switched to express.

    • dpblogpl dpblogpl 28 July 2018 / 11: 46

      First there is the first stage, and then it switches to the next stage you hear, because it is the mixing stage. The machine heats up quite a long time, a little patience 🙂

    • Avatar Fedora 28 May 2020 / 18: 51

      There are commands here, and the skin is pale (you can bake on the baking program), when to add extra (as long as it is mixed, you can add extra). But mine stopped talking and there is nowhere to fix it. Normally he baked bread, I turned it off and it was his last job, he doesn't speak anymore. He only worked 18 months.

    I have a bread maker KH-1172 bought in lidl recently broke down and I don't know who fixes it ??

      I will try to find out from a reliable source 😉 Write to our email so that I do not forget 🙂

  7. Avatar Ula 4 March 2018 / 11: 19

    Is it possible that the machine does not have to knead bread? I bake bread only with sourdough and I prefer to make it myself and throw it into the machine so that the bread grows up and is baked

    • dpblogpl dpblogpl 4 March 2018 / 20: 06

      There is no such option because it is mixing. Unless you would remove the hooks, but I don't know if the device would break. Because there you have heating, mixing, growing, mixing - there is the whole mode of making bread.

    • Avatar Piotr 14 March 2018 / 10: 33

      There is such an option, you can choose a baking program that will only bake bread.

      • dpblogpl dpblogpl 15 March 2018 / 07: 25

        Thanks for the info! I didn't even know this option :)))

        There is an option on the 15-luck program

    Magda, when you choose the 1 program - remove the stirrers after the arrow jumps to the right (rising). Be careful, because this happens when you add grains or other additions after the sound signal. It is best to wait at the baking pan (it takes about 2-3 minutes) from the moment you add the additions, and as soon as the arrow to the right jumps - press the pause and remove the mixers. Then just press the same button again and it's ready 🙂 After removing the stirrers, I always form the bread (smoothing it, because when removing the stirrers you can violate its arrangement). Be sure to show off your baking on our fanpage or tag us on Instagram.

    Hello, I am asking for instructions when taking out the stirrers 🙂 how do I know when

  10. Avatar Basia 10 November 2016 / 07: 49

    When I went on a gluten-free diet and tried some bread without wheat, I was desperate and I decided that I would be a bread hell. This dough requires more water, so baking in ordinary molds the more so in my old oven it usually did not work. I bought a morphy richards toaster and initially also had two left hands for it, but as you mentioned - the method of trial and error, in the end it started to pretend 🙂 Bakery now on average 3 times a week and the bread comes out very tasty, also adds a lot of herbs to come out aromatic 🙂

    Several times I thought about this device, but I think I still don't know; o) You have some interesting hints. Have you baked wholemeal bread? Maybe you have some photos of your baked goods?

    • Avatar [Email protected] 14 April 2016 / 10: 52

      Yes, I bake whole-wheat. I set the fast mode then because I have the impression that the wholemeal bread is then more fluffy.

      Photos of breads can be found on our Instagram profile: @dpblogpl 🙂

      I am very satisfied, which you can see after the device review 🙂
      I also have a dryer from Lidl. I've been using it for 5 for years and I'm very happy!

    I have been thinking about buying a bread machine for some time, because I like such a fresh warm one for breakfast 🙂 After your entry, I am more and more convinced by such a purchase.

    • Avatar [Email protected] 14 April 2016 / 10: 54

      I have thought about this device for a long time, but it was only after the purchase that I became convinced in 100% 🙂

  13. Avatar Anszpi writes 27 January 2016 / 14: 13

    An interesting machine, but I'm too lazy and prefer to buy bread 🙂

    • Avatar [Email protected] 27 January 2016 / 14: 19

      It can't be easier and faster, because here you only pour water and pour the mixture 😉

  14. Avatar Onyxia 27 January 2016 / 10: 57

    A great device. 😉 It could use my house.

  15. Avatar Beauty Land 20 January 2016 / 07: 28

    And you can't bake sourdough bread in it?

    • Avatar [Email protected] 20 January 2016 / 08: 13

      Of course! Anyone you dream of 😉 There is also a program for kneading dough for pasta, challahs and other sweets, e.g. croissants, pastries, and even dumplings for dough 🙂

    Oh, I envy such home-baked bread is delicious. Unfortunately neither I nor anyone at my home has time for this. Although maybe for the weekend ... 🙂

    • Avatar [Email protected] 16 January 2016 / 20: 17

      You don't need much time here. Just pour in the right amount of water and pour in the bread baking mixture. Then, just remove the hooks from the machine and it's ready 😉

    In the UK I didn't manage to buy it from Lidl, but I bought Russel Hobbs. Great, but only has one knob 😉

      Russel Hobbs I have a slow cooker. I praise him very much 🙂

    Super 🙂 There is nothing to be discouraged at the beginning, usually you have to tame, familiarize yourself with and like such equipment. 🙂 I wish you nice and tasty pastries! 🙂
