"Usually I throw all the ingredients in the night before and set the timer to have it done at a certain time in the morning. Perfect every single time. The bread falls right out of the pan." Jolynn Burkhart, Amazon.com

WHAT MATTERS

Performance

Stellar - Versatile bread machine has tons of settings, including gluten-free, and it even makes meatloaf.

Ease of Use

Simple - Incredibly convenient with custom menu settings and an intuitive delay timer.

Appearance

Not Too Shabby - Horizontal orientation requires a larger footprint, but the stainless-steel finish looks modern.

Noise

As Expected - Quieter than most, with some minor whirring sounds during kneading cycles.

 

OUR INSIGHT

The Zojirushi Home Bakery Virtuoso has 10 different menu settings, including gluten-free, sourdough, and three custom memory settings. This all-in-one machine makes meatloaf, jams, and dough, in addition to a variety of breads in perfectly textured, two-pound loaves every time. Even gluten-free recipes taste better and cost less than store-bought options, producing a consistency that's difficult to achieve with gluten-free bread.

The Virtuoso makes traditional, horizontal loaves, but that also means it takes up more counter space. On the plus-side, prep time takes just minutes and cleanup is a breeze. The best part of making bread at home: Heading to bed with the timer set and waking up to the aroma of freshly-baked bread.
