HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

With a fancy heated lid and dual paddles for kneading, this machine formed and baked beautiful, golden-crusted loaves with even-crumbed interiors. The machine’s heated lid helped it achieve the exact chosen crust shade every time. However, the control panel was slightly confusing to use, and we wished that the display screen showed a timer for how long the bread would take to make rather than the time of day.


We maintain strict objectivity in all testing.*

How We Tested Bread Machines

All the machines we tested had the ability to make 2-pound loaves, though some also had options for other bread sizes, ranging from 1- to 2.5-pound loaves. We made a variety of breads in each machine: basic white bread from each machine’s recipe booklet, our recipe for basic wheat bread for bread machines, and our recipe for sweet bread with almonds and dried cherries for bread machines. After the first few rounds of bread making, we did some further baking in our favorite machines.
