Yes you can buy a nice bread machine for $10.00.

Most are barely or never used.  The bread machine was one of those gimmicky kitchen items 20 years ago that many people bought thinking it was a good idea.  Most became shelf queens.  Bread machines were given as gifts, listed on wedding registries and sold on infomercials.

So where do you get a bread machine for $10.00?

Thrift stores have them all the time.  Sometimes they are new in the box never used, but most of the time only used a few times.  The condition of the teflon pan and paddle will be a good indicator if the machine has had much use. If you are not comfortable with buying from a thrift store, Facebook marketplace is an alternative, but pricing will be a little higher depending on the model.  Just search on Facebook under the terms “Bread machine for sale”.

What is a good bread machine?

Breadman Machines have been around a long time.  Breadman Saturday morning the infomercials sold many machines. These are easy to find and typically good units.  On the high side you’ll see them at $20.00 used.   Zojirushi makes the best machines, however finding them used for cheap is not easy.  If a Zojirushi is sitting in a thrift shop it’s a steal.  Cuisinart machines are on the higher side on Facebook marketplace.  Take your time, there is no rush there are plenty of units on the used market to pick from.

  1. I lucked out and found a Baby Zo, never used on FB Marketplace for $75. Being the owner of the larger, I knew this was a good deal for a Zo and I love it. It’s the perfect size for us as we are now empty nesters!

    • That is great. I found a large one on marketplace for $25.00 but it’s pending. I told the seller to give me a chance if the buyer backs out.

    • That is great. I am probably going to look for the smaller Zo eventually. I am not worried about having loaves look like store bought bread. Single paddle machines and their square loaves are just fine by me.
