In order to take all of the work out of searching for the best, we have compiled a list of our favourite bread makers that we have tested and reviewed. Please read on below for more information.

4. Panasonic SD – ZB2502BXC Stainless Steel Bread Maker – The Best Choice

Features: 27 Bake Modes – 3 Loaf Options – 3 Crust Options – Ingredients Dispenser – LCD Screen – Accessories Included – Cool Touch Housing

  • Handy ingredients dispenser to create your own recipes.
  • 3 crust and loaf options to bake your bread how you like it.

The Review

Panasonic are very well known for their incredibly high quality home appliances, so we were really eager to test out their bread maker. Out of all of the models available, we chose to test this Panasonic Bread Maker Machine and we were very impressed with its performance.

To start off with, we’d like to talk about the programs. This bread maker machine has a very impressive 27 different baking modes. This is far more than most bread makers on the market right now.

Whilst we didn’t test out all of the different programs, the ones that we did test had fantastic results. One of the other features that we really liked was the ingredients dispenser. This allows you to add things like nuts and raisins to your loaves.

The 3 crust and loaf options were great and allowed us to bake our bread to our exact tastes. The one issue that we did have is that the instruction manual is a little difficult to get your head around.

However, a simple online search showed us how to use the bread maker machine properly and we were able to get the hang of it very quickly indeed. Overall, we were very impressed with this model and definitely recommend it.

 

3. Cuisinart Bread Maker Machine

Features: 12 Bake Modes – 3 Loaf Options – 3 Crust Options – Ingredients Dispenser – LCD Screen – Accessories Included

Pros:

  • This bread maker machine is very easy to use.
  • There are plenty of different accessories included.
  • There is a very clear and easy to read LCD screen.

Cons:

  • There are only 12 baking modes available.

The Review

Cuisinart is another big name, especially when it comes to kitchen appliances so we definitely wanted to test out the Cuisinart bread maker machine when we got the chance. We have had mixed results when testing their appliances before so we weren’t sure what to expect but we were definitely pleased with this one.

The main thing that we liked about this particular bread maker is how easy it is to use. We didn’t have any issues with it at all and found navigating the settings menu no trouble at all.

We liked the fact that this one also has an ingredients dispenser as this makes creating your own bread recipes no problem. The LCD screen is perfect because it is clear and very easy to read.

The one issue that we did have is that there are only 12 different baking modes available. With a bread maker of this standard we expected it to have more options than this.

However, it is still a very good machine and we were more than pleased with the results of the loaves of bread that we baked so we would still recommend this one.

 

2. Sage BBM800BSS

Features: 13 Programs – Ingredients Dispenser – LCD Screen – Accessories Included

Pros:

  • Nice, modern design which looks great.
  • Very clear, easy to read LCD screen.
  • Good range of accessories included.

Cons:

  • Not very many programs to choose from.
  • Expensive, especially considering the lack of programs.

The Review

What initially made us want to test this Sage bread maker was the futuristic design. It is unlike any other bread maker on the market at the moment. At the front left hand side of the machine you will see the very clear LCD screen alongside dials and buttons that allow you to customise your settings.

Initially, we were a little concerned that we might struggle to figure out the user menu, but thankfully it was actually very straight forward and we didn’t face any difficulties in choosing the program that we wanted to use. Another thing that impressed us with this bread maker is the stainless steel housing. It feels very well put together.

As well as this, we really liked the automatic ingredients dispenser. It really did take a lot of the time out of preparing the ingredients for our loaves. We did, however, have a couple of issues with this machine. First of all, we felt that there could have been more programs included. With only 13 available, there isn’t really much of a choice.

Lastly, we felt that considering the lack of programs and lack of customizable options, this bread maker was a little expensive. However, it is very well made and highly professional so if you can afford to spend a little extra then it is definitely worth doing so.

 

1. Lakeland Compact 1lb Bread Maker

Features: 11 Bake Modes – LCD Screen – No Accessories Included

Pros:

  • Fairly inexpensive bread maker machine.
  • Very easy to use.
  • Easy to see LCD screen.

Cons:

  • Only 11 bake modes to choose from.
  • No accessories included with this bread maker.

The Review

Last on our list is this Lakeland bread maker machine. The reason why we chose this model to test and review is that we wanted to add a more basic machine to our list and we felt that this was the most impressive out of all of those that we tested. First of all, we felt that this machine offered great value for money.

 

However, the main thing that we liked with this bread maker is that because of how basic it is, it is very easy to use. There is a clear LCD screen that shows all of the different settings which we found very useful. We felt that the user friendliness of this bread maker was the main selling point.

Of course, there are some downsides with this one. First of all, there are only 11 different baking programs to choose from. We felt that this was a little restrictive compared to some of the other models that we tested. The other downside is that there are no accessories included with this model.

However, if you are looking for a basic bread maker that is easy to use, offers basic bread making programs and is fairly affordable then this one from Lakeland is a great choice.

We hope that now that you have read our reviews you are able to make a choice from the best bread maker machines and choose the model that is best for you personally.
