"You just can't go wrong. We have now started experimenting with our own recipes … including things like walnut and sunflower seed flour (made in our magic bullet), milled flax seed, and wheat germ. The taste is fantastic; you gotta get this thing." David Richardson, Amazon.com
Stellar - This versatile bread machine makes delicious breads and jams.
Straightforward - Some trial-and-error may be needed to tweak recipes to perfection.
Not Too Shabby - A simple, white bread machine that doesn't take up much counter space.
Ultra-Quiet - Even the add-ingredients beep is unobtrusive, but audible enough to alert you.
With two crust options, three bread textures, and eight simple menu settings, the Zojirushi Home Bakery Mini Breadmaker is a versatile appliance for making various types of breads, jams, cakes, cookie or pasta dough, bagels, and more. While it only makes one-pound loaves, Amazon reviewers say the machine is the perfect size for RVs, apartments, or small families.
Features like a viewing window, delayed-start, and quick-bread settings add convenience, and cleanup is a breeze. After some initial recipe tweaking through trial-and-error, this bread machine produces consistently delicious loaves. It's backed by a one-year warranty, although reviewers say they've used it three to four times every week for years and it's still going strong.
