Best Bread Makers For 2018
The Best Bread Machine
Close your eyes and imagine a freshly baked loaf of bread. The golden crust, the warm dough, the mouth-watering smell wafting through the house. Starting a new life as a local baker may be one fairly drastic remedy to that problem, but there is a much easier way: buy a bread maker. While some bread makers are solely designed to do the bare minimum, fancier models allow you to explore your wildest bread-based Bake Off fantasies — gluten-free, sourdough, wholemeal and rye loaves, bread filled with nuts and fruit, even cakes in some cases. If you want to narrow down the choice a little more, the buying guide below explains the key features in more detail to help you make your final choice. No matter which bread maker you choose, the baking process will be similar. Add the ingredients to the bread pan, put the bread pan in the bread maker, and choose the appropriate programme, such as white or wholemeal.
The real beauty of the best bread makers is that you can create almost any type of bread you want. That is, if you buy the right machine. We can help with that. Many kitchen appliances perform the same basic functions whether you purchase a cheap model or the most expensive one available. Bread makers are somewhat different. Some models let you choose between different sizes for each bake, a handy option. Many bread makers have the ability to make more than bread.

We spent close to 40 hours researching, testing, and retesting eight bread machines plus many more hours waiting for 38 loaves of bread to bake , and we think that the Zojirushi Home Bakery Virtuoso Plus is the best bread machine for most people. It proofs, kneads, and bakes evenly, reliably yielding better loaves than any other machine we tried. A favorite among the pros, the Zojirushi is sturdy, super reliable, and makes a standard-shaped loaf, unlike most other machines we tested. Unlike many other bread makers, it makes a standard 9-byinch loaf, and its two kneading paddles, powerful motor, and even temperatures yield lofty, golden-brown breads every time. It also allows you to program your own settings in addition to 14 preprogrammed options ranging from gluten-free to multigrain , which is useful for anyone interested in tweaking or experimenting with recipes. This is a good starter machine for anyone not ready to make a big investment. It kneads well and bakes evenly, but loaves come out taller than they are long.
The aroma of fresh bread coming out of a bread machine is simply amazing. No one can resist it. You can now bring it into your kitchen. Bread makers are appliances that allow you to bake bread in the comfort of your own home. Do you want to control the quality of bread you eat?
