How Which? tests breadmakers
In our lab we bake over a dozen loaves in each model – including white, wholemeal, seeded and by using the delay setting - to see how well it performs.
We also rate each breadmaker on a range of additional criteria, including noise and ease of use, and have found a significant difference between the best and worst models. We award each model one to five stars for each of these criteria, and award the best-performing models Best Buy status.
