According to more than 80 customers, you cannot beat the Oster Expressbake for quality vs price. It has most of the options found on more expensive breadmakers but at a very affordable price.

  • Pro:It has many of the bread, dough and baking options to be found on other, much more expensive models
  • Pro: It is quite compact, taller rather than wider and saves up on countertop space.
  • Pro:The express settings are a great feature, enabling you to have fresh, tasty, homemade bread in less than an hour.
  • Pro: The 13 hour timer is a great feature. It allows you to program the appliance in the evening, so as to wake up with the irresisitible smell of freshly baked bread every morning, or just before you leave for work, so that you freshly baked loaf will be waiting for you at dinner time.
  • Pro: The pan is really non-stick and the paddle does not get stuck in the bread like it often happens with other breadmakers
  • Pro: The viewing window is a nice feature, as it allows you to monitor all stages of the baking process
  • Pro: The appliance is really easy to use and produces excellent results
  • Con: According to many users, the appliance is quite noisy. Not the kneading process itself, but the fact that it beeps very loudly at intervals, eg. to let you know when you may put in additional ingredients such as nuts, raisins etc, or to inform you that the bread is ready

Overall, the Oster Expressbake is an excellent choice for a basic breadmaker which does what it is supposed to do and is really cheap compared to similar models on the market
