Top 10 Bread Makers
for December 2022

The bread machines are getting a lot of press lately and for good reason: they bake loaves of bread fresh in your own home in less time than if you were to do it by hand. The results are great: fresh bread that really tastes better that store bought. The down-side is that buying one is costly. We've tested more than a dozen models, and our findings below are our pick for 10 of the most user-friendly models and top features.

Bread machines work via a main unit, which sits on top of a permanent burner, along with a baking pan, a paddle, a dough hook, and various other accessories. The appliance works by pulling in dough from the mixing bowl, kneading it a bit, and then letting it rise. When the time comes to bake, simply pour in the bread ingredients (flour, water, yeast, salt, and so on), set the dial to the loaf size and program length, and the machine will do the rest. The bread machine has its own internal timers, and when it's done baking, you only have to wait a few minutes (or hours!) before running it under cold water before removing the lid to slice and serve. A bread machine can make multiple loaves at once, and there are also options to make dough balls that can then be frozen or grilled.

A bread machine makes the entire process of bread making entirely hands-free. All you have to do is toss the ingredients into the bowl, choose the loaf size, and let the dough rise. This is a real boon for those without a stand mixer, and allows exceptions to be made for those with health limitations (such as gluten sensitivity). Though the bread machine has been around for a long time, there's a growing number of models on the market, and they should be revered as kitchen essential.

Zojirushi BB-CEC20 Home Bakery Supreme 2-Pound-Loaf Breadmaker, Black

Zojirushi BB-CEC20 Home Supreme Bakery 2-Pound-Loaf Breadmaker

by Zojirushi

Large viewing window; removable nonstick bread pan for easy cleaning

The Zojirushi Home Bakery Supreme is an all-around great breadmaker. The dual-blade loaf this machine makes is perfect for sandwiches, and it's especially good with sandwich fillings like sliced ham, roast beef, or salami. The loaf also tastes great on its own, and it's surprisingly light, thanks to its small size. The Home Bakery Supreme also produces good pizza dough, which tastes great when topped with your favorite toppings. The Home Bakery Supreme has a basic LCD control panel with only three buttons, but it's easy to use. The breadmaker has a 13-hour delay timer, so you can set the Home Bakery Supreme to make bread when you're asleep, and it will still bake on schedule. The Home Bakery Supreme comes with a bread pan, a measuring cup, and a small measuring spoon, so you can start baking bread right out of the box. The Home Bakery Supreme is easy to clean, and it's compact enough to fit on a countertop or in the cabinet.

KBS Large 17-in-1 Bread Machine, 2LB All Stainless Steel Bread Maker with Auto Fruit Nut Dispenser, Nonstick Ceramic Pan, Full Touch Panel Tempered Glass, Reserve& Keep Warm Set, Oven Mitt and Recipes

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 smart machine with 17 automatic programs, but the 2.5-pound maximum loaf size makes it less convenient than the machines we recommended in our guide to the best bread makers. The bread that it makes is fluffy and evenly baked, and the bread maker is very easy to use, and it has a nice, modern look. The 15-hour delay timer is a great feature, as is the 1-hour automatic keep-warm feature, which will keep your bread warm for up to an hour after it's finished baking. However, the ingredient dispenser mechanism is clunky and ineffective, and the machine's 2.5-pound capacity limits its usefulness. The bread maker has a 2-pound loaf capacity, which means you can't make large batches of bread at once. The 2.5-pound capacity also limits the machine's versatility, because you can't make smaller loaves for sandwiches or other types of bread. Also, the bread maker only has two kneading blades, which means it doesn't knead as well as machines with three or four blades. The bread maker is very large and heavy, and it's difficult (and dangerous) to move. This machine also has fewer options than the machines we recommended in our guide to the best bread makers. For example, the KBS Large 17-in-1 Bread Machine doesn't offer crust color adjustment, and it doesn't have the jam setting that most of the other machines in our guide have. However, it does offer more advanced options, such as a 15-hour delay timer and a 1-hour automatic keep-warm function. The bread maker also has more customization than the machines we recommended in our guide to the best bread makers, such as 17 automatic programs, 2-pound loaf capacity, a 2-pound loaf capacity, and 15-hour delay timer.

FRIGIDAIRE Bread Maker with Machine Nonstick Bowl

by frigidaire

EASY USE - It will beep to remind you to add your final ingredients during the working cycle, such as fruit, nuts or any additional cereals you like. MAKE FRESH BREAD: From the comfort of your home. Includes: A Kneading Paddle Interior Pan, Bread Hook, Measuring Cup & Spoon

The Frigidaire FMB2671SS is the best bread maker we've ever tested, and it's clear why: It's super easy to use. It has 15 different settings for different types of bread, and it's practically foolproof. The digital display panel is easy to see, and the bread comes out perfectly browned every time. The non-stick pan is easy to clean in the dishwasher. And the 3 different crust colors give you the choice of a wheat, white, or rye loaf, perfect for sandwich bread. The FMB2671SS also has a few other features that we really love: a bread hook, which makes it easier to move bread out of the machine; a measuring cup and spoon, so you can more quickly and easily measure ingredients; and a removable nonstick pan, so you can easily clean it in the dishwasher. We like the FMB2671SS so much that we bought a second one.

Oster Bread Maker with ExpressBake | 2 Pound Capacity

Oster Bread Maker with ExpressBake

by Oster

2-POUND CAPACITY:Generously sized to easily hold loaves from 1.5 pounds up to 2 pounds

The Oster Expressbake is a no-frills bread machine. It's simple to set up, easy to use, and it produces good results. The only drawbacks are that it's slow (the timer only gives you an hour to bake your loaf of bread) and that it doesn't come with an automatic fruit dispenser. The Expressbake's bread is light, fluffy, and moist, and it's tasty enough to eat on its own. We tried it with a variety of different ingredients, from whole-wheat flour to fruit and nuts, and each time it produced a good loaf of bread. The manual instructs you to add ingredients to the dispenser before baking, which makes it easy to experiment with different flavors. The Oster Expressbake is a good choice for light bakers who want to add homemade bread to their weekly routine.

Cuisinart Bread Maker, Up To 2lb Loaf, New Compact Automatic

Cuisinart Bread Maker

by Cuisinart

Vertical baking pan for counter-friendly compact design - removable kneading paddle and bread pan

The Cuisinart 2 lb. Bread Maker is cheaper than most of its competitors, but it still packs plenty of features. Its 13-hour delay setting makes it perfect for busy mornings, and it's the only breadmaker we tested that automatically adds ingredients at the beginning of the delay cycle. The Cuisinart also bakes three crust shades and up to 2 lb. of bread, and it offers 12 preprogrammed menu options, including gluten-free and whole wheat options. The Cuisinart is bulky, but it's easy to operate and to make substitutions. You can choose from three different crust shades, and you can also specify whether you'd like a wheat, white, or multigrain loaf. The Cuisinart's interior light makes it easy to monitor the bread as it bakes, and it has a viewing window so you can easily see when your bread is done. The Cuisinart is simple to clean, and the built-in cleaning tool makes it easy to remove crumbs from the machine. The Cuisinart makes good bread, but it's a bit pricey, and it isn't as durable or versatile as our top pick.
