Breville BBM800XL Custom Loaf Bread Maker
For the most advanced bread maker out there, choose the Breville BBM800XL Custom Loaf Bread Maker. It features 60 programmed settings that cover virtually every type of bread imaginable, but if you can't find the loaf you want, you can program in your own loaf creation.
The fact it makes great tasting bread in a horizontal position can't be denied, but this bread maker and all of its pre-programmed functions might be overkill for those who just want to make a loaf of bread. It does have an automatic fruit and nut dispenser so once you load up the dispensing tray, the machine will make sure the additions are mixed at the correct time into the dough. You'll get quick bread in about an hour, and the onboard computer will store up to nine of your own bread recipes.
Perhaps the units most distinguishing feature are the mixing paddles which fold down once they’ve finished kneading the dough. The result is little to no paddle marks on the bread when baking is concluded; however, the paddles must be coated with olive oil or a non-stick cooking spray or they have a tendency to jam up and not retract. This bread maker comes with a one year warranty.
