Growing up, I used to admire grandma bake those delicious loaves of bread in a traditional oven. Every vacation I would travel to the countryside to have a piece of the bread. My favourite was when it was still hot, a thing I still relish even today. To me, bread is a necessity in my home; thank goodness, I don’t have to bake them like grandma did thanks to the advent of bread making machines. However, as I came to learn, mastering the art of perfect bread making takes time and if you don’t have the right equipment it can be stressing and discouraging.
When I moved to my apartment, a bread making machine was among the first things I bought. At the time, I thought any bread machine would do the job right, so, I bought the first model I came across to. Furthermore, I had no experience with any bread maker to know which the best was. After some time, I realized the bread machine I had acquired was not meeting my expectations and I decided to get another machine. But this time round, I was going to do a thorough research at first.
Going online, I realized rather than concentrating on manufacturer’s specs, the best way to find a reliable and quality bread maker was to go through numerous top best bread machine reviews. Bread maker reviews from real users was the best source of information as I found a number of users who I could identify with. Going online, I went through numerous reviews and from the reviews, I realized that while it is not advisable to go for lower priced machines, the best bread maker need not be necessarily expensive. I found out satisfactorily reviews from customers who were using lower priced units. The only difference as I found out was that it was difficult to maintain consistent quality with low quality machines, so if you can afford it, go for a higher priced brand as it is likely to produce better quality loaves.
Having your own bread machine is very important, though he initial purchase cost is what puts many people away, in the long run you will end up saving compared to buying bread from your local grocery store every other day. Think of the joy of that comes with making your own loaves; you get to put the ingredients you want and the option to always have fresh bread as opposed to getting one that has overstayed on the shelves in your grocery store.
I realized there is no single best bread maker machine though and that “best” varies depending on user preferences. For example,among the top bread machines, the Panasonic SD-YD250 is excellent for gullten free recipes; however, it lacks automatic fruits and nuts dispenser available in other models such as Breville BBM800XL. On the other hand, some people prefer bread makers with large viewing windows, for such people, the Cuisinart’s CBK-100 is the best option.
All bread making machines have their own advantages and disadvantages, I would advise anyone to review their preferences before researching on a bread maker unit so as to find one that fully meets their expectations.
