For this post, I have put together a collection of the best bread machines currently available.

My family always had a bread machine growing up and it was fun to experiment with different recipes.

Bread makers are relatively simple machines that are essentially small ovens that contain the bread pan with a kneading paddle at the bottom. It is typically controlled with a touch panel that allows you to set the functions of the appliance. This includes making a variety of breads or special items such as pizza dough.

To make a loaf of bread the steps are actually quite easy and straightforward. Simply place the measured ingredients into the pan, select the appropriate bread type and it does the rest. Most machines take around two to three hours to knead the dough and bake it to produce the final loaf.

The following bread machines use the latest innovative components to meet your needs.

So here is my list of The 10 Best Bread Machines.

Enjoy!
