Many of our customers who buy our popular breadboxes, usually keep store bought bread in them. And that’s completely fine, since having bread properly stored on your counter is really convenient. But have you ever thought about making your own bread? Does this seem far fetched to you? It shouldn’t. And in this quick guide, we will go over the best bread makers on the market so you can start waking up to delicious home made bread in the morning.

For those of you who can’t wait and need to get your bread machine now, below is a quick table of our top picks:

How Do I Choose a Break Maker?

There are a ton of bread makers in the market. And they all have a lot of bells and whistles. But in our opinion, that isn’t necessarily a good thing. Many of us, just want a machine that can do one thing – make bread!

For this guide, we are looking for a bread maker that is easy to use and one that will last a long time.

Removable Bread Pan

So most bread machines on the market already come with this feature. But very few of them don’t. This is definitely an important feature to have, because it will make washing your machine so much easier.

Once your machine has made your bread, you will be able to remove the bread pan and take out the bread and pop the pan back into the machine. So make sure this is something the bread machine you chose offer. The machines we recommend below, all have this feature.

1) Zojirushi Virtuoso Plus


You just can’t go wrong with this bread machine, and they have all the 5 star reviews to prove it. This bread machine comes jam packed with a ton of features. It’s easy to use for a newbie, but can even keep the most advanced bread maker on their toes.

The Zojirushi has double kneading blades. This is useful because since there are two, it helps keep that dough together so that you don’t have excessive flour flakes when your bread is done.

It also has a large LCD display so you can easily know what is going on. You can also make different types of breads, from multi-grain, vegan, gluten free and so on.

If you are new to bread machines, you will notice that the bread coming out of these machines don’t look anything like that “Wonderbread” you bought at the grocery last week. This machines, however, comes the closest to what you think bread should look like.


  • Double kneading blades for awesome results
  • Large viewing window to keep you staring at your bread as it’s being baked
  • Dual Heaters on the bottom and on the lid so that the bread is baked evenly


  • The price. It’s on the pricier side, however, when you calculate that making your own bread is actually 50% cheaper than buying bread, then this turn out to be a good investment
  • The size of the machine is big, so if you don’t have a lot of storage, this could be a problem for you

2) KBS Bread Machine


The KBS bread machine is a beauty. It has 17 automatic programs and can make 3 different sizes of loafs: 1lb, 1.5lb and 2.2lbs. This comes in handy because home made bread doesn’t last the same amount of time store bought bread lasts so you want to make sure you are making enough bread to last you about 2 days.

The KBS machine only has 1 kneading paddle, but what it lacks in that they make up with a feature we absolutely love. Their automatic fruit and nut dispenser. This dispenser will add nuts and fruit during the baking process so you get a delicious flavored bread.


  • Automatic dispense to add fruit or nuts to your bread
  • Sleek design if you want to use this machine as decorative item to your kithen
  • Ability to make 3 different sizes of loafs


  • Too many programmable options can make this machine a bit more difficult to use for a beginner and many users report that the instruction manual is in broken english so hard to decipher

3) Cusinart Compact Automatic Bread Maker


Cuisinart is a trusted brand and this is a great bread machine for getting started. It does feature a lot of options, but it won’t overwhelm you like many others on the market.

This compact bread maker as 12 pre-programmed menu options and lets you choose from 3 different crusts. Either light, medium or dark.

As we mentioned, this is a compact bread machine. The reason is because it is vertical so that it takes up less space on your counter. However, since it is vertical, your bread will also come out an odd shape that you will have to get used to.


  • The Price. You won’t be spending an arm and a leg to start baking your own delicious bread at home
  • It’s compact design won’t take up that precious counter space


  • Only one paddle for kneading the dough
  • Some customer’s claim it can be a bit too loud

If you are like many households, where bread is a go-to for lunch sandwiches or even breakfast toast, then getting a bread machine is a great investment as it will save you money in the long run. On top of that, you won’t be eating all those preservatives that store bought bread includes in them.
