I am a big fan of unpopular things to do in the kitchen I guess. I LOVE canning (and I’ll teach you here), and instead of getting an instant pot, I’m ALL about my bread machine.
Guys, bread machines are AMAZING. I need to confess first of all, that I didn’t buy mine. My Gram gave me hers. However, if mine died (it’s probably 20 years old and going strong) I’d buy one of these. The price is reasonable, the features include the delayed start and different crust options (we like a light crust in our house, but some may like a darker crust) and it can make up to a 2 lb loaf which feeds a family. It also doesn’t take up a ton of countertop space, which is really handy.
