5 Reasons Why Bread Machines Are The Best Kitchen Appliances

Bread machines are easily one of my favorite kitchen appliances. Only beat out by my pressure cooker.

I’d been hoping to find a great deal on a bread machine for a long time. By great deal, I mean a thrift store score. And last week, I found it!

She was sitting there all shiny and like new, for a measly $9.99 at our local Goodwill.


I grabbed it and made my way to the register. The cashier had no clue what it was. Oh the horror. After explaining to her what it was, I thought it’d be a good idea to share with you all as well 🙂

5 reasons why bread machines are the best kitchen appliances.

So here are 5 reasons why bread machines are the best kitchen appliances:

Reason #1: It makes bread. Beautiful bread. Yes, I know the crust is a bit dark. This was my first ever loaf, now I know to cook lighter!

Reason #2: It’s easy! Really, really easy. I’m talking, dump in the ingredients and hit start. No kneading!

Reason #3: There are tons of tasty bread machine recipes.

Reason #4: It makes your kitchen smell amazing. Only while in use though!

Reason #5: You can also cook other things in a bread machine besides just bread! It simmers and stirs for you. So try making a dip or even sloppy joes or chili.

Do you have a bread machine? Have any recipes I should try next?
