Although this breadmaker is a little larger than our previous top pick, it has a larger bread pan, which makes the maker better suited for larger households.

3 homemade memory settings allow the user to customize the Knead, rise, and bake times

This bread maker is simple to use and is capable of making bread, pizza dough, and jam in a wide variety of settings, but the bread it produces is still a bit on the solid side. The dough maker did a good job of kneading bread dough, but it had some trouble with the sticky pizza dough.

The bread maker comes with several video tutorials that show you how to use it. It also has a viewing window so you can see how the dough and jam are progressing.

KBS Large 17-in-1 Bread Machine

by KBS

Superior Construction Design & Practical Accessories IncludedLarge viewing window offers you a full view of the process. Unique quiet AC motor-less noise, better comfort. Ceramic Pan, Kitchen Glove, User Manual, and Other Versatile Accessories Included.

The KBS Large 17-in-1 Bread Machine is a terrific bread machine, with terrific features. It has a larger viewing window than our previous pick, and it's much more convenient to use. The stainless steel construction makes it more durable and less likely to have accidents, and the nonstick ceramic pan prevents sticking and makes for easy cleanup. We also like that it comes with two 10-ounce stainless steel bowls, which are perfect for baking smaller loaves. The intuitive, digital interface is simple to use, and we especially appreciate the delay timer and automatic keep warm functions. The bread machine also bakes two loaves at once, so you can easily make two loaves at a time. The automatic fruit and nut dispenser is great, and it comes with four types of nuts: almonds, walnuts, sunflower seeds, and hazelnuts. The dispenser works well, and it's nice to have the choice. The bread machine comes with a recipe book, which boasts more than 100 recipes, including gluten-free and jam bread. The bread machine also comes with an oven mitt, a measuring cup, a measuring cup spoon, a kneading paddle, and a rack. The bread machine feels expensive, and it does make bread that tastes better than homemade bread. However, because it's so big, it's probably not the best choice for a family that eats bread every day.
