This is not my normal kind of tech review, but a tech review it is. A few months back, I decided I was fed up buying shop-bought bread. It was getting increasingly expensive, and it’s full of additives to extend its shelf life, so I decided to invest in a bread maker and not just any old bread maker, The Sage — Custom Loaf Bread Maker.

Having made a few loafs with this lovely bread maker, I thought it was about time to share my thoughts with you. There are a few points that I want to cover in this blog post.

  1. Design
  2. Functionality
  3. Ease of Use
  4. Cleaning
  5. How it tastes

So let’s jump in 🙂


This bread maker is a truly lovely look piece of kit that is made from brushed stainless steel, so will not look out of place on your kitchen counter. If you have a small kitchen, you may want to double-check the dimensions as it’s fairly large at H35.2cm x W24.8cm x D39.9cm.

Digital Display

The Sage Custom Load Bread Maker comes with a digital display that controls of the functions of the bread maker. The display itself is nice and clear and straightforward to use. You can alter the size of your loaf as well as the darkness of your crust.

You can also clearly see the length of time that is left on your bake as well as at what stage it’s in e.g. kneading. I also like that you can keep an eye on your load’s progress through the window by using the light.


So what can this bread maker do? It’s more than just making bread.

What Can You Make?

The Sage Bread Maker can also make the below.

  1. Bread
  2. Cakes
  3. Jam
  4. Pasta
  5. Pizza Dough

I have not tried all of these, but I have made bread, cake, and Pizza Dough. All have turned out OK, what I would say is that for making cakes mix up your ingredients before you put it into the bread maker.

There are also a couple of other things that the Sage Bread Maker has up its sleeves.

Delayed Start

If you want to wake up to the smell of freshly baked bread, then you can use the delayed start feature. Put your ingredients in the bread maker the night before and set the delayed start, and it will kick into action, providing you with freshly baked bread in the morning.

Fruit & Nut Dispenser

The Sage Bread Maker has an automated fruit and nut dispenser. The machine will add the fruit and nuts to the mixture at the right, with no need for you to intervene manually.

Power Interruption Protection

If you have a Power cut whilst you are baking, the Sage Bread Maker will continue for 60 min using its power backup. It’s a nifty little feature that might just come in handy one day and save your bake from ruin.

Ease of Use:

I found that this was straightforward to use and was up and running in no time, baking my first loaf of bread. It’s as simple as taking out the loaf tin and adding all your ingredients, and simply closing the lid and selecting your programme on the LCD Display.

It’s then a case of letting it do its thing for the next 3hrs. So, if you want bread for lunch, you will need to make sure that you allow enough time. As I said, though, it takes less than 5 min to get it going. You can also keep an eye on your bake’s progress through the viewing window, which has a light.

Cleaning Your Machine:

The Sage Bread Maker is easy to clean. You simply take out the bread tin and use some warm soapy water to wipe any residue of your bake off the tin. This is machine is hand wash only, so please do not put the tin or blade in the dishwasher. You can then wipe down the rest of your bread maker with a damp cloth.

How Does it Taste?

There is something about homemade bread that is lovely. The taste of the bread that I have made using the Sage Bread Maker has been great. Not only that, the Pizza dough comes out lovely, and it means that we are eating food that we know exactly what is in it, helping us stay clear of processed foods.

Final Thoughts:

Yes, it’s easy to just go and buy a loaf of bread from the shops, but making your own is somewhat therapeutic. It’s also good for you as I mentioned you know what is in it.

Although the Sage Bread Maker is on the expensive side, coming in at £295, but It’s very well-built and does more than just bake bread. You can venture into the world of making Pasta and Pizza as well Jam’s and cakes. It is also super easy to use with some great additional features. So if you are looking for a new kitchen gadget for making lovely fresh, unprocessed food, then I would recommend have a look at this.
