*A review of the best according to the editors of expertology.ru. About selection criteria. This material is subjective, is not an advertisement and does not serve as a guide to the purchase. Before buying, you need to consult with a specialist.
We decided to dedicate our review to bread makers, which have long turned from a fashionable “curiosity for the rich” into a familiar household item. The key advantage of this household appliance is the ability to prepare a huge variety of different homemade pastries. It is fundamentally different from store-bought bread in terms of quality, and most importantly, the user himself can adjust the degree of browning of the crust and the composition of the product. At the same time, you will always know what exactly the bread was made from, which is important for people who lead a healthy lifestyle and prefer gluten-free pastries. You no longer need to knead the dough yourself and control the cooking process — the bread machine will do everything by itself, the main thing is not to forget to load the ingredients strictly according to the recipe.
For our rating, we selected 10 models from popular domestic and foreign manufacturers. Among the criteria for selecting nominees are the functionality of the equipment, the innovative solutions used, the fame and popularity of the brand in the Russian market. We also paid attention to the study of reviews from real buyers, taken from several open sources, where users talk about the real advantages and disadvantages of each model identified during operation.
For convenience, we divided all the nominees into two groups according to price — budget solutions and models worth more than 10 thousand rubles.
