There's no doubt about it, the easiest way to make bread is using a bread machine. No kneading, no messing about, you
just pop in the ingredients, press a few buttons and wait (or go to bed and sleep if you have a model with a timer). As little as two hours
after setting it up, out will come delicious home-made bread.
There are many bread machines on the market at a range of prices to suit any budget. However, it is essential to choose wisely. I
have known people with bread machines who simply have no success at all, even though they follow all the instructions to the letter. This
is because some machines are just not very good at making bread, so don't waste your money on one of those. Choose a recommended model
and you will have years of trouble-free use and delicious home-made bread to look forward to. All of the models below have received
excellent reviews from people who have tried them.
Amazon is a great place to buy your bread machine as they are reliable and competitively priced. Do have a good look at several
different models before you decide which bread machine to buy. Look out for a raisin/nut dispenser if you like bread with added goodies
such as fruit, seeds, sundried tomatoes, olives and so on. Another point to consider is how much space you have available in your
kitchen. There are some quite compact machines available if you are short of space.

The best way to choose a bread machine is to ask a friend who uses one what they would recommend. It's a good idea to try and borrow a
bread machine and try it out yourself at home before buying.
