Grocery stores across the United States are currently experiencing a shortage of many items. One of the items many people are missing is bread, leaving some to try their hand at baking bread at home. While making a rustic loaf from scratch is relatively easy, making sandwich bread that’s sliceable can be quite difficult. And that’s where a bread maker comes in.

Bread makers facilitate all the kneading, rising and baking a great loaf of bread needs. Simply add all the ingredients in the bread maker, and let it do all the work for you. In a few hours, you have a perfect loaf of bread that’s shaped just like the sliced bread you are used to buying — only this bread is fresh.

Bread makers are an investment, costing upwards of $100. But the purchase will likely save you money in the long run by making all your bread at home with inexpensive ingredients like flour, yeast and oil. Especially in a time where access to bread is uncertain, you may decide picking up a bread machine is a worthy purchase.

Check out some of these top bread makers to help you make the perfect loaf.
