Oster 2-pound Expressbake Bread Machine
This bread machine is very reasonably priced and will set you back approximately 44 dollars, with this comes 12 bread making settings and 3 crust settings with a 13 hour delay timer and an easy to follow LCD display. The 2 lb. capacity means this machine is great for making bread for families or multiple people and express bake settings allow the production of bread in less than an hour, which is particularly useful if you are impatient like me. The Oster 2-pound expressbake is very durable considering its price and it takes minimal time to add the ingredients in before your bread is being made, however the non-stick coating does fade with intensive use after a few years. But overall it is a very reliable machine for the money you pay.
