5 Of The Best Breadmakers

A breadmaker makes a great gift for a loved one or yourself. Imagine waking up on a Sunday morning to the smell of a freshly baked loaf of bread; our members also love the fact that their homemade bread doesn't contain excess salts or fats.

"No more fatty and over salted supermarket loaves. Great! If you go abroad, the loaves don't last very long. This is because they don't add fat to the dough! Much healthier." Read full review here

  • Tips for choosing a breadmaker


    - do you want to make large family sized loaves if so choose a larger model with several loaf size options. Also do you have room to store your breadmaker or would you rather keep it on your worktop?


    - do you just want bread loaves or do you want to make rolls for lunch or pizza dough for dinner? Check your breadmaker for the amount of setting you can have.

    Ingredient Dispensers

    - if you love to make fruit bread or want to have your bread made first thing in the morning then check for an ingredient dispenser. Some will automatically add fruit or nuts to your dough without you having to wait around.


    - if you are looking for a professional style loaf everyday then it is probably worth investing in a higher end breadmaker. If it's a once a month thing or you just want to give breadmaking a go then a cheaper, entry level machine is probably the best choice.
