Oster 5838 ExpressBake
2-Pound Programmable Breadmaker
Sometimes you need to savor the simple things in life--a warm, freshly baked loaf of bread is a great place to start. Fill your kitchen with the welcoming aroma of baking bread with help from this easy-to-use Oster 5838 ExpressBake programmable breadmaker. The countertop unit makes a wide variety of delectable, homemade loaves--no trip to the bakery necessary.
From White to Whole Wheat--and Everything in Between
Whether you're a beginner or a baking connoisseur, easily bake an assortment of favorites using the freshest ingredients--a nice alternative to store-bought bread that often comes loaded with preservatives. The ExpressBake breadmaker makes it possible to provide family and friends with delicious, nutritious baked goods--everything from cinnamon-raisin bread for breakfast, whole-wheat bread to slice up for sandwiches, and sweet bread to enjoy with that next coffee break to rustic dinner rolls or hearty rosemary or olive bread to serve with soup.
A Few Simple Steps
A basic bread recipe proves to be a snap with the ExpressBake breadmaker. Just add the measured ingredients (liquid, then dry, then yeast) to the removable baking pan, then gently snap the baking pan into the bread maker, and lower the lid. With the press of a few buttons, the machine takes it from there, baking a 1-1/2-pound or 2-pound rectangular-shaped loaf of bread to delicious perfection. Its automatic keep-warm setting will keep the bread warm for up to an hour, though enjoying it right away is recommended.
Easy 3-Step Programming
The breadmaker's user-friendly easy-access push-button control panel ensures ease of use. Choose from three crust colors (light, medium, or dark) and eight bread settings, which include Basic, French, Sweet, 58-minute ExpressBake (bakes a 2-pound loaf in less than an hour), 80-minute ExpressBake, Whole Wheat, Dough/Pasta, and Bake (for jams and marmalades).
Handy indicator lights, a digital display, and up/down arrows for adjusting the time provide added convenience, and a Start/Stop button turns the unit on and off. Best of all, the versatile breadmaker's 13-hour delay timer means bread can be fully baked and ready to enjoy when you roll out of bed in the morning or when you get home after a long day at the office.
Take a peak without disrupting the baking process thanks to the unit's see-through glass viewing window. The breadmaker also comes with cool-touch housing for safety, while a nonstick surface on the aluminum bread pan ensures baked bread slides out easily.
The ExpressBake programmable breadmaker makes a thoughtful gift idea for newlyweds, new homeowners, or for anyone who enjoys wholesome, flavorful, homemade bread. A user manual comes included, complete with helpful instructions, tips, and enticing recipes for bread like Italian herb, cottage cheese and chive, and apple walnut, as well as recipes for coffee cake, pizza crust, pasta, and more.

Top Customer Reviews
The Oster 5838 is a great machine for making basic breads (white, whole wheat, rye, etc.) which is all I use it for. Perhaps there are others that are better for baking gluten-free and specialty breads, I don't know and don't care about anything except daily loaves for my family and friends and there's no way to improve on the results I get from these machines.
I'm a home baker, not a professional, but I've been baking bread for almost 50 years and this machine consistently bakes great bread. I make 10 to 30 loaves per week depending on my mood and my other commitments. When I sell bread, I usually make 6 to 12 loaves at a time and knead them by hand but when I only have a few loaves to make, I use this machine and have never had a single complaint. Incidentally, I charge $7 to $9 per 2 lb loaf for the bread I sell and could sell many more if I wanted to but it's a hobby for me, not a business. My hand-formed loaves are a little more aesthetically pleasing but no one complains when I make the bread in my Oster machines and it's certainly much easier when I only need to make a couple of loaves.
Here's my original review:
If you want a well-made basic bread machine that's easy to use and only want to make yeast breads, this is the best machine to buy.
1.Very consistent, perfect bread every time.
2. The pan shape is more rectangular and much better than those that produce a higher, less rectangular loaf.
3. The owner's guide instructions and recipes are excellent.
4. The price is very reasonable.
5. The pan and mixing paddle are heavy-duty and well made, with a durable non-stick coating.
6. Programs are basic and easy to use.
7. Delay timer function is great. Add your ingredients at night and set the timer for the hour you want your fresh bread in the morning. It will be ready when you are. It also has a keep warm feature so if you sleep late, your bread will stay warm.
CONS (for some):
1. No quick bread setting. It only makes yeast breads.
2. Fewer program settings than many models (although to me this is a pro, not a con, since I don't make anything but regular yeast breads.
3. Common to almost all brands of bread machines, the paddle either sticks inside the loaf and has to be removed once the bread is cool or it sticks to the spindle and stays in the pan, leaving a noticeable hole in the bottom center of the loaf.
Some models, such as some from Breadman have a unique hinged paddle. After the final punchdown, it reverses and folds down flat, thus reducing the size of the hole. I've never used one with this feature and review on the Breadman machines are mixed. There's an easy solution to the problem, if it bothers you. After the punchdown (1:55 hrs on the basic cycle), invert the dough into a mixing bowl lightly sprayed with cooking oil, then remove the paddle and pinch the dough back together with your fingertips and invert the dough again into the bread mold. Using your fingertips or a spatula, lightly push the dough into the center of the mold. It will rise perfectly and when you remove it after baking, you'll be left with only the very small hole left by the spindle.
I do this when convenient. If not (for example when I'm using the timer to have fresh bread ready when I wake up in the morning) I just accept the fact that there will be a hole in the bottom of the loaf.
On a final note, I've used numerous makes and models of home bread machines since they first came out over 30 years ago and this is my favorite. I make bread every other day for my family and also make bread to sell to friends and family ( perhaps a total of 10 to 12 loaves a week). When I have multiple loaves to make, I now use my Kitchenaid stand mixer to mix and knead the dough, then hand-form the loaves to bake in the oven. However, I'm completely satisfied with this machine and plan to buy several more over the coming months because of their simplicity, time savings, and consistent results. I'm very experienced making bread by hand, in a mixer and with bread machines and get as good or better results with this machine as I do with any other method. Since it takes three hours to bake bread with the basic cycle, having multiple machines makes good sense to me, and with the demand for my bread, I'll recover the cost very rapidly.
When the second machine arrived, I again used the recipe for the basic loaf in the machine user manual and again it cratered. I saw no point in more exchanges. Before discarding the bread machine I thought I might try tinkering around with the recipe. With the aid of bread machine literature I made some changes which were encouraging. The craters turned into wrinkles, and wrinkles turned into a smooth dome; a good looking loaf of bread at last.
Since the amount of flour when measured in a cup varies depending on how it is filled, I decided to use 5 oz. of flour by weight for each cup called for in the recipe, and that kept the amount of flour I used consistent. I reduced the amount of water a little at time until there was no more improvement. I changed to bread machine yeast and reduced that amount until I got a good loaf. I added a tablespoon of gluten for good measure since it is recommended by some authors. For the recipe that gave me the best results, see recipe below.
OSTER 5836 58-MINUTE EXPRESS BREADMAKER
Basic Two Pound Loaf
1 ¼ cups bottled water at room temperature
2 tablespoons Land O Lakes unsalted sweet butter, cut into 16 pieces at room temperature
1lb. 4oz. King Arthur Flour unbleached bread flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon Hodgson Mill vital wheat gluten
2 tablespoons Carnation instant nonfat dry milk
1 ¾ teaspoons salt
1 ⅞ teaspoons Fleischmann's bread machine yeast,
(2 teaspoons minus ⅛ teaspoon)
I went through this trouble because I like the Oster bread machine. It is compact, light, and makes a 2 pound loaf. It is relatively quiet and does not "walk "on the counter when it is kneading. The controls are simple and yet there are sufficient options to satisfy most people's needs, especially for first time bread machine buyers like me.
Some literature advised the user to check the dough at the start of the second knead cycle and make corrections with flour or water at that time. Having to do that would negate the use of the delay timer function and take away from the simplicity of knowing that once you start the machine you can forget it until the bread is ready.
The Oster 5836 is an attractive, small, reasonably priced machine, and makes excellent bread. Even the cratered loves tasted good they just did not look nice.
Since my revue I experimented with the country white bread, and using the recipe below I get a nicely rounded loaf with just a little wrinkling that gives it a country look. This is now my preferred loaf and has become my daily bread. I slice the bread about 3 or 4 hours after it is done and freeze the slices individually placed in a Ziploc quart size bags. I toast the slices straight out of the freezer or let them defrost in the bag at room temperature or out of the bag in the microwave for 35 seconds.
