There's nothing quite like the smell, taste and texture of a freshly baked loaf of bread in your kitchen. Our experts lab test and review breadmakers to help you find the best breadmaker for you.

  • Our breadmaker buying guide will help you decide which type you need.
  • How we test explains how we come up with our results.

    Our test covers breadmakers ranging in price between $109 and $469.

    Our expert testers give every breadmaker a thorough workout to find the models that are:

    • best at making bread from scratch
    • best at making bread from pre-mix
    • best at making gluten-free bread from pre-mix
    • best at making rye bread from pre-mix
    • the easiest to use.

    We also give you good and bad points for each model, and our Recommended list will help you see quickly which models come out on top.

    Shopping links on the CHOICE website

    CHOICE is an independent, non-profit organisation dedicated to helping consumers. Clicking a link will take you to a retailer's website to shop. While we make money if you buy through some retailer links, this doesn't influence any of our rankings. 100% of the money we make goes straight back into our non profit mission. We're currently testing this service and will consider providing more shopping links in the future. Tell us what you think.
