I am flying from London to Tbilisi in a couple of days, on Turkish Airlines with a transfer in Istanbul. I need to take with me a bread maker - it's well used and doesn't have the original box (lost years ago). I considered packing it into the hand luggage, but due to its size (even though it's not too heavy), it would be rather cumbersome, considering that I'm flying with a small child, so nappies, baby food and the pram take priority.
The other option is to pack it into the checked luggage, but I'm not sure of the best way to do so - to ensure that it doesn't get damaged in transit. It's about 33x27x37 cm, but also has the bread tin inside, which would need to somehow be packed to prevent it banging against the walls inside.
Any ideas about the best way to pack it?
