The Breville BBM800XL Bread Machine is arguably the best bread maker on the market. It is very customizable and has a large capacity. Many rate it as the best large bread maker on the market.
It also has new technology that makes it better than any other bread maker.
Although the machine is large, it is a good size for the amount of power it has. It’s also a really good-looking bread maker. It’s as if the Breville BBM800XL entered the party and everyone stared at it because of its beauty.
The Breville BBM800XL has a beautiful stainless steel design. It is rectangular and has a super large LCD display with neatly designed buttons.
On the lid, there is a window where you can see the bread.
The Breville BBM800XL has a cool feature that many other bread machines don’t have. This is the automatic fruit and nut dispenser. At the right moment during the kneading phase, the dispenser will add fruit and nuts to the dough.
This is great for people who don’t want to go back to their bread machine after it’s finished baking to add fruit or nuts.
The bread pan inside the Breville BBM800XL is nonstick. This makes clean up much easier, especially when you’re making lots of bread with gluten in it because gluten will stick to the pan otherwise. The special coating also makes your bread come out easily whenever you want it to.
The kneading blade inside the Breville BBM800XL is also nonstick, which means that you can just throw it in the dishwasher after each use without having to scrub at it forever to get all of the old dough off it.
Although this makes clean up much easier, be sure not to lose it because you won’t be able to make bread without it and you’ll need to buy a new one.
This bread machine comes with a collapsible kneading blade. This means that the blade will not stick to your bread when it bakes, unlike most other machines. It also comes with a blade for making jam. So you get two blades with this machine.
The bread machine has 13 different settings, including some unique ones like yeast-free, crusty loaf, and gluten-free. There is also a “custom” option for bread makers who want to set everything themselves.
The Breville BBM800XL has a really large capacity. It can hold up to 2 pounds of dough, which is twice the amount of the cheapest models out there.
That means that even if you have a big family or lots of friends, you’ll be able to make bread for everyone without having to make multiple batches.
You can also save your recipes in the memory of the Breville BBM800XL, so you won’t have to re-enter them each time you use it. Just press a button and everything will be set up for you already. It’s super easy!
Breville BBM800XL Bread Machine Review
The Breville BBM800XL is called the “Smartest bread maker. Ever.” We can see why. This machine is beautiful. If you compare bread machines to cell phones, the Breville BBM800XL would be a smartphone and every other bread machine a regular flip phone.
Immediately, we noticed that the LCD screen is large, which is great for peeking inside and taking a look at the progress your bread is making.
On other bread machines, you would push buttons to choose your cycles. But on this one, you rotate the main knob and see your selection on the screen. This machine is very cool! The LCD screen has a beautiful blue background light that matches nicely with the stainless steel.
After we unboxed it, we realized that it takes up a lot of counter space. If you don’t have much counter space, you’ll need to find a way to make more.
One of the coolest and most useful features of this machine is the automatic fruit and nut dispenser. Breville calls it their “innovation” and claims that they were the first to come up with this idea.
If you add fruit or nuts into the dispenser while the bread is being kneaded, they will automatically drop into the dough. This is useful for people who make a lot of bread with added ingredients.
For a long time, Zojirushi has been known for making high-quality bread machines. However, the Breville BBM800XL is just as good or better than any machine made by Zojirushi.
We’re glad to see a high-end competitor because that means more choices for us!

Wrapping up with the Breville BBM800XL review
The automatic bread machine is very quiet. You can have a conversation or watch TV while it’s running. That’s not something you can say about most bread makers.
The one-year warranty from Breville covers both parts and labor.
Breville offers a 30-day money-back guarantee, which is great. A lot of manufacturers don’t want to give refunds after you’ve used their product because then they can’t resell it.
The Breville BBM800XL is an impressive bread maker that can do everything you want it to. It has 13 pre-programmed settings, a one-year warranty, and lots of cool features. If you’re willing to spend the money on it, you won’t be disappointed with your purchase!
We don’t like the price tag, but it is worth it. The high-end bread machines, like Zojirushi, cost around the same amount of money. This is a good alternative for us and we can justify it.
If you bake bread all the time, you will save money. It’s worth it to bake bread all the time.
