What we like

  • Compact and Excellent Style: The Breville Bread Maker is designed with clean lines and an attractive stainless steel exterior. Moreover, it has quite the small footprint which is great for small apartments.
  • Bread Exactly How You Want It: The Breville custom bread maker offers a wealth of bread making options such as crust shade finishes (dark, medium and light). Each bread that comes out is exactly how you want it to taste.
  • Many Customizable and Automatic Settings: Create different loaves of bread every time- gluten-free, whole wheat, sweet dessert bread, crusty bread, etc. You can even use the Breville BBM800XL custom loaf bread maker to make jam for your bread.
  • Easy Cleaning: The pan can be taken right out after use. All you need is water and soap to clean it up.

What we don't like

  • Unevenly Baked Loaves: The smaller loaf batches may come out as uneven due to the large pan size. ​​​​
  • Collapsible Paddle Flaw:  It can take a significant chunk of bread, especially ones made of cornmeal.


The Breville BBM800XL Bread Maker is the perfect bread machine for those who would like freshly-baked bread without the lengthy mixing, kneading and cleanup process.

The wealth of included features and customizable settings allow for a touch of modern convenience which is mostly absent in other bread making machines.

You can take a quick walk outside, or leave the timer on as you sleep in the evenings, then wake up to the smell of fresh bread baking for an unforgettable morning fare!

It's one of our favorites and is Amazons choice in bread machines.
