As of August 2015, some of the best bread machines available are Zojirushi's BB-CEC20, Panasonic's SD-YD250, the 5891 by Sunbeam and Cuisinart's CBK-100, according to reviews from ConsumerSearch.com. Which of these machines is best for any particular person depends on his needs.
For those looking for value, the Sunbeam 5891 is a versatile machine that bakers of all experience levels appreciate for its relatively low cost. Cuisinart's CBK-100 is the ideal machine for those who are looking to make light and crusty gluten-free bread. Consumersearch.com considers the BB-CEC20 by Zojirushi to be the best bread machine on the market because it is highly programmable, makes slices that look store-bought and works great for sandwiches and toasting.
