Tips to Choose Best Bread Maker for Healthy Bread

by Shivangi Gupta Appliance Advisor

Nothing can beat the taste of freshly baked bread that is made from scratch and that too conveniently without any mess. Bread maker has emerged as one of the most convenient cooking appliances for those who juggle between office and house chores on a regular basis. It is a versatile kitchen appliance, which works like an extra pair of hands in the kitchen completing various tasks hygienically without the need for any manual intervention using the pre-programmed options in it.

If you are looking forward to buying the best bread maker, you should consider the following features:

Kneading Paddles

This is one of the basic requirements in any bread maker as kneading paddles come in different shapes. Most of the machines come with one paddle, but for efficient kneading, two paddles are recommended. You should see that the paddles can be removed after the completion of the kneading cycle or else there will be a hole at the bottom of your loaf.

Delayed Timer

The best bread maker definitely should have this feature. Having a delayed timer helps to select the time when you want the bread to start baking. This comes handy for having a freshly baked loaf right in the morning as you can then add the ingredients to the machine a night before and set the timer for baking early in the morning.


As with versatile cooking appliances, a good bread maker lets you bake different kinds of bread. For that, you might have to add different ingredients like fruits and nuts. If you add everything in the beginning, these nuts or fruits can get crushed in the mixing cycle. The alarm comes handy for indicating when to add them at a later stage.


Usually, machines are prone to make noise while working, though the noise intensity differs. Opt for a bread maker made of sturdy material so that it makes less noise rather than a flimsier one that is more notorious for making noise and at times they even move while at work. This makes them prone to dropping on the floor if placed near the counter edge.


Price always plays an important role in your buying decision and in case of bread maker it is dependent on the features and not the size of the appliance. The price for sophisticated machines can go high. If you want an economical yet robust bread maker, you should go for something from a good brand.

A good bread maker, besides having these basic features, should have settings for pizza dough, sourdough bread, gluten-free bread, whole wheat bread etc. There are also other programmable options, which can help you in taking control of the machine, like choosing the darkness of your bread crust or getting the dough rise for a particular time. Having such features in the bread maker will enable you to bake your perfect loaf according to your own liking and specifications. So, enjoy making healthy bread as per your liking.
