Today though I have a simple solution. Perhaps it will persuade a whole army of people to bite the bullet and invest in a machine that produces a product to be proud of. Far nicer than that pappy tasteless stuff that is the standard fayre in a supermarket. Go for a budget machine by all means if you wish but when you replace it, heed the advice of those of us who are older and wiser, and fork out for a Panasonic. Whilst you're in the spending frame of mind, invest in a bread saver at the same time. Once your inaugural loaf is cooked, resist the urge to wolf it down as soon as the timer goes beep. It's a bugger to cut then. No, let it cool and then chop it down the middle. One half can be for your immediate munching pleasure. May I suggest doorsteps slathered with a whole load of good old fashioned butter. Salted, of course. None of this fancy pants foodie stuff needed here. Use the handy guide to cut the other portion into slices, bag up and then pop them in the freezer for use whenever the need for carbs overcomes you.
