Breadmakerguides.com is about bread making machines and nothing else! We spent a lot of time and energy on sorting through the bread makers available for sale to publish these reviews. We might help you by giving a quick overview of the reviews that are published on our website.
Which bread machine is the best?
The answer to this question might depend on the size of your wallet, the size of your family, the size of your counter space and even the type of bread you like to eat. We suggest you start by reading this post: Bread Machine Best Sellers.
If this approach is too vague for you, we could narrow down the search by focusing on a specific feature or application. We will discuss a few of our posts that focus on a single feature.
Which is the best two paddle bread machine?
Dual blade bread machines are popular because two kneading blades are better than one. These bread machines also have rectangular bread pans which produce a rectangular loaf. You can read our post about bread machines with two kneading paddles for a few ideas.
Which bread machines have collapsible paddles?
Standard kneading blades leave a hole when you remove the bread from the pan. Collapsible kneading blades were introduced to reduce the size of the hole in the bottom of bread loaves. These paddles collapse after the last kneading cycle and leave only a flat indentation. It does not work perfectly every time, but most of the time it reduces the hole in the loaf. You may read our post about the best bread machine with a collapsible paddle for more information.
Best Bread Machine For Horizontal Loaves
You might be avoiding bread machines because you do not like the vertically shaped bread loaves. This shape is common to bread machines with single kneading paddles. You might prefer a bread machine with two kneading paddles and a horizontal, rectangular bread pan. You can read our post about bread machines with horizontal baking pans for a few examples.
Bread Machine With Fruit And Nut Dispenser
Do you like to make bread recipes that contain various fruit and nuts? A bread maker with an automatic dispenser might be indispensable for making nut and fruit bread. It might also work for making raisin bread or even seed bread. Go read our post about bread machines with fruit and nut dispensers.
Can I watch the bread being made?
Opening the lid while the bread maker is working is not recommended. Do not open the lid while it is baking the dough. What you can do is look through the viewing window in the lid. Most bread makers have a viewing window. You can see examples of this by reading our post about bread machines with a viewing window.
Bread Machine with Automatic Yeast Dispenser
Bread makers with this feature do not have viewing windows. The window is replaced by an automatic dispenser for bread machine yeast. This keeps the yeast away from the liquid ingredients in the bread pan until it is time to start the mixing process. The dispenser then dumps the yeast into the bread mix. You can read our post about a bread machine with a yeast dispenser for an example of a bread machine with this unique feature.
Bread Machine for a Large Family
Baking bread loaves for two or three people is not too much work. You can bake two times per week and it might be enough. What about baking bread for two adults as well as a few children. Maybe add in a grandparent or two? Then it becomes more time consuming to bake enough bread. That is when you need a bread machine for a large family.
