The Zojirushi Mini BB-HAC10 is a compact bread machine that is ideal for singles, couples or small families. It takes up less counter space than a full-size machine, yet it has settings for 1-pound loaves of bread or cakes, as well as settings for cookie or pasta dough and jams. It also has a quick bake cycle that cuts cooking time nearly in half. The only complaint logged about this machine is its price; those who hesitate to pay nearly $200 for a miniature breadmaker may be better off with a less expensive, but more flexible machine, such as the West Bend Hi-Rise Breadmaker (*Est. $100) , which makes loaves in 1-pound to 2.5-pound sizes.
