My husband and I got the Salton breadmaker as a wedding gift. Originally we’d asked for a different model, but a friend decided to go with this one instead. At first we were really skeptical — we’d done a lot of research (or thought we had anyone) and chose to put the other one on our registry for a reason — but he assured us that this is the best breadmaker on the market. We tried it out, and he was right! The Salton model is great! It has all these different features the other breadmaker didn’t, like super-rapid, 100-percent whole wheat, and gluten-free cycles, a viewing window, and fruit-and-nut add-in. We actually have a friend who had bought the other model for themselves, and I observed her using it — the Salton is so much easier to use (to the point where even my normally kitchen-phobic husband likes using it), and since this particular friend is usually a whiz in the kitchen, we’re assuming our bread came out way better because we have the better breadmaker. We haven’t bought bread since we got the Salton!Buy it here!
