Breadmaking at home is back in vogue – there's nothing quite like the smell, taste and texture of a freshly baked loaf of bread in your kitchen. We 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, and how we test explains how we come up with our results.

Our test covers nine breadmakers, priced between $109 and $399.

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.
