Breadman Bread Machine TR875

The Good:
  • Reasonably Priced
  • Quiet
  • Small
  • Does Not Get Overly Hot

The Bad:
  • Has trouble mixing heavier grains.
If you're looking for a good basic bread machine, the TR875 may be a very good option. In general, reviews are positive. The machine is quiet, small and makes a good loaf of bread. Many people like the gluten-free cycle. It also comes with a low-carb cycle.

However, if you want to make your own bread using heavier grains, this may not be powerful enough for you. People have reported inadequate mixing when they use whole grains.

Also, there seemed to be a run of problems earlier this year where refurbished machines were being sold as new. That problem seems to be corrected now, but when you open your machine, make sure to check that the plastic cover over the display is still intact, the twist ties are still on the cord, and the machine itself is not dented or dirty. Amazon does have a really good return policy to cover this sort of incident, and hopefully the company has resolved this problem as well.
