How we test breadmakers
At Which? we’ve clocked up nearly 700 hours of baking time and produced over 300 loaves of bread, weighing almost 300kg.
We test breadmakers for the quality of the finished loaf on different settings and baking speeds, so you can be assured you’re buying a breadmaker that bakes beautiful bread.
Our reviews help you avoid breadmakers that produce disaster loaves with big holes, knobbly crusts and sunken tops.
