Hamilton Beach Premium Dough and Bread Maker Review

Hamilton Beach Premium Dough and Bread Maker Review

This post is in partnership with Hamilton Beach and all thoughts and opinions are 100% my own. 

We’ve spent the past month reviewing the brand new Hamilton Beach  Premium Dough and Bread Maker and we’ve all become quite the snobs when it comes to how fresh our bread should be. FYI it’s very. You can find more information on this model here

Now I know that a lot of people are not fans of raisins but my oldest is a huge fan of warm, sweet, raisin loaded, carbs and the Hamilton Beach Premium Dough and Bread Maker makes a mean loaf.

From beginning to end the process is super simple. You add the ingredients in the order they are listed, select one of 14 programmed cycles and press start. If you are adding nuts or fruits there is an automatic dispenser that you load up at the beginning and you don’t even need to think about it until you get your finished delight.

I also appreciate that I can choose whether I want a 1, 1.5, or 2 lb loaf and even choose whether I want a light, medium or dark crust. When I am all done I can just put the loaf pan and mixing paddle right into the dishwasher so I can enjoy a warm slice of bread while the dishwasher works its magic.

There is also a handy viewing window that lets me watch the dough as it mixes, rises, and even bakes so that curious folks can easily follow along.

And when the kids ask how much longer until the fresh bread is ready, the countdown timer with LCD display makes it easy to shout out when our results will be ready.

At first I did have some issues trying to figure out how to set the settings I wanted but that was only because I was making it more difficult then it needed to be. You simply need to touch the buttons and use the dials to select what setting you prefer. Super simple and the results are always delicious. 

In the past month this breadmaker has saved me plenty of days when I go to make lunches late at night and realize we ran out of bread. I was scared at first to fall asleep while the breadmaker was on but quickly got over myself since the reward was warm and delicious bread.

    Sounds like a great machine, I love that it has the dispenser, mine doesn’t and I always forget to add my nuts or fruit

    Thanks so much for your detailed review & pics of the Hamilton Beach Premium Dough and Bread Maker. I’ve never made my own bread before, but it sounds really yummy and I really like that you can customize the ingredients and determine the size of the loaf.

    I make a lot of bread and this looks so handy! Fresh bread every day. I’m impressed by the dispenser as well. I wondered how that would work, but obviously it works well.

    Have never used a bread maker before, this sounds like a good place to start.

    This sounds really nice and looks simple enough to use. I love good tasty bread especially when it’s still warm just out of the oven… I have not made my own bread but would like to try one day.

    I used to bake a lot of bread but for some reason it doesn’t rise at all well here. I know my basement apartment is chilly, which will no doubt be one of the reasons, but still. I’ve let it rise in the fridge overnight, in a metal bowl on the bathroom floor (the only place where I have floor heating) – none of them were good enough. This sounds like it might be just what I need to be able to enjoy my fresh home-made bread again.

    I have a bread maker and we use it all the time! I even made gluten free bread and it turned out beautifully. Nothing like fresh bread and butter

    I love that the loaf is a regular looking loaf. My first machine made an long tube- shaped loaf so I rarely used it. Everyone loves homemade bread for Christmas presents, too!

    Does this machine leave a weird hole in the bottom of the loaf? That’s what I have against the one my son has, though I do see and understand why it’s there.

    This is amazing; I have always wanted to make my own bread at home, but always considered it so much work.

    I love the smell of baking bread! I used to have a small bread maker but it wasn’t the easiest to use. The technological advances like with this one certainly have seemed to make baking easier!

    I need to start making bread regularly again. I love how simple this machine is to use And how it has a little guide for which setting to use for which type of bread you’re making.

    I have been wanting to try my hand at bread making. Is a machine really necessary or just a help?

    Be very careful of this company, I paid for a different bread maker last week and, they took my money but no product.
    When I asked for the confirmation email, I got no response.
    We still have not received any communication from them. Lar

    Hello Aneta!

    I’m wondering about your opinion of the HB bread machine now that you’ve had it nearly a year. I’ve just ordered one for myself and I’m curious about your experience beyond the initial review. (I’ve never used a bread machine before, and hope I made a good choice!)

    I’ve been thinking more and more about the convenience of a bread maker. I like that this Hamilton version has a viewing window.

    It looks like it would make life easier. We also love carbs here so I make a lot of bread.

    Hamilton Beach always makes such fine appliances and it would be fun to make our own bread.

    I love this bread maker, I love that it has the separate spot to put the add ins, I always miss the beep on mine so the add ins never get added

    Just got this bread maker for Christmas. Wish it had more recipes. Would love to make raisin bread but do not have recipe for it. Rapid bake loaf is very dense. My old black and decker bread machine made better rapid bake loaves.
