I have never used it.

if you use the orange lidded surebake yeast, I'm pretty sure that has bread improver in it already. The red lidded one doesn't.

phy. cdh, my Panasonic breadmaker book says this re bread improver

"Vitamin C (Bread Improver):
Vitamin C is a "bread improver"i. e. it helps improve the volume of the loaf.
You do not need to add this when using Surebake yeast as it already includes vitamin C. ":-))

I can remember my dad crushing a tablet between two spoons when he made bread in his breadmaker. Can't remember how much he used though.

I am wondering whether that recipe comes from the Australian version of breadmaker recipes, they have a branded Improver (can't think of it's name but if you buy Supabake Active Yeast Blend from Binn Inn or the yeast specially marked "For Breadmaking" at your supermarket you will get the same result. This is what i have used for years whether I am making white or wholegrain bread and I always get great results.

Bread improver can be purchased from Bin Inn, 250gm bottle $ 5. 35. Also buy my yeast from there a lot cheaper than from supermarkets.
