A Zojirushi bread machine is like the Rolls Royce of breadmakers. They have been making quality housewares for nearly 100 years and their bread machines are widely regarded as some of the best on the market. They make great tasting bread, they are easy to use, and they are built to last.
Zojirushi makes several different models and one of their best is also one of their newest, the BBCC-X20. This machine has two mixing paddles for thoroughly kneading the dough for a bread that rises well and has great texture. This model makes traditional, horizontal loaves that look like they were baked in an oven. The heavy duty drive components in this machine give it the power to make whole grain and other thick doughs and the durability to last for many years.
All of the models by this manufacturer will have multiple pre-programmed baking cycles, a crust control function that allows you to select light, medium, or dark crust, and a delay timer that allows you to set up the controls as much as 13 hours ahead of time.
In addition to baking delicious breads your Zojirushi bread machine can be used to knead dough which can then be taken out of the machine and baked in your oven. Doing this allows you to make breadsticks, dinner rolls, and pizza. It can also be used to make non-bread items like jams, cakes, and meatloaf.
Zojirushi breadmakers are some of the most expensive machines on the market but the quality and durability is unmatched. A less expensive machine will turn out to be more expensive in the long run if you have to replace a machine that can’t handle the same use and abuse that a Zojirushi bread machine can take.
