This West Bend Bread Maker has a wide range of features that includes a ‘gluten-free’ option. This bread maker very well received by the users but we’d like you to take note of the following user feedback;
- The bread maker manual is disappointing
- The bread machine comes with 2 kneading blades which assures that even heavy cereal wholemeal bread will have a consistent output.
- The nickname ‘Hi-Rise’ (referring to dough that rises ‘high’) has been confirmed to be right.
- Not mentioned in the instruction book, many users recommend you to run the machine empty the first time you use it. This is to avoid a ‘plastic taste’ of your first few loafs.

- The ‘beep’ is experienced to be very loud.

- This machine is also described as ‘programmable bread maker’, take note that you can’t program your own ‘homemade cycle’.
The CBK-200 Cuisinart Bread Machine, can produce bigger loafs than its ‘brother’ the CBK-100. Besides the bread size we’d like you to be aware of the following feedback from users;
- The CBK-200 machine comes with a fan to evenly control and distribute the heat in the machine
- The Bread pan is made out of rather thin aluminum and a number of users complain that the nonstick layer peals off.
- The crust control has disappointed some users, they experience ‘burnt crust’ even when the medium crust option has been selected.

This breadman bread maker is very well received by its users. It comes with two ‘special features’; a ‘dispenser for nut and raisins’ and the option the bake ‘gluten-free’ bread. Do take note of one ‘mechanical issue’ that is experienced by many;
- The bread pan seems to jump off the drive during the kneading process.
This Zojirushi bread maker is specially developed for the smaller households and very well received by its users. In fact it has only received 4 and 5 star ratings in Amazon. This is what users say;
- As this unit only produces one pound loaves it is ideal for for small households who love freshly baked bread.
- An uncommon option; you can choose you bread textures; regular, firm, or soft.
- But don’t get fooled by the description ‘Programmable bread maker’, you can only select different bread cycles and not program your own homemade cycle.
The second West Bread Bread Maker in the top 10. This bread machine is able to bake bigger loafs. This is what users say;
- It us a rather big machine and needs quite a lot of counter space.
- The machine seems to have excessive vibration during kneading.

A decent breadman bread maker that suits the basic needs. Highly recommended for the beginner bread maker.

The Oster Bread Machines have not made it into the top 10 best selling bread makers but are definitely worth considering for the beginning bread makers. Do consider the following customer feedback from users;
- A number of users complain about ‘collapsing bread’. It seems that this bread machine is very sensitive to right amounts of liquids. The measurements in the recipes provided with this bread maker are not always accurate.
- One user gave some great bread troubleshooting tips; When the loaf turns out to be a brick; you need to add more water and a bit more yeast. When the loaf hit the lid or collapses, you need to (slightly) reduce the water. When you dough doesn’t rise, you could add gluten.
