Rated 5 out of 5Â by RockyMtnGal Love this machine!
While I am still experimenting with adjustments for high altitude, I love the smell of bread baking, and the flavor of fresh bread can't be equaled. Being able to control all the ingredients of the bread we eat every day, and being able to use different combinations of flours and other ingredients makes me feel better about what I feed my family. Even the loaves that collapse (altitude) make excellent french toast. The only feature I would add is a "pause" button, but overall this machine is tough to beat for value. The pan is nice and heavy and the dual paddles ensure proper mixing and kneading.

I have been gluten free for over 6 months now and the only thing I really miss is good bread. I bought a cookbook for GF bread baking and it recommended this machine as it is completely programable for each step. I have made several loaves and each of them is vastly better than what is available commercially. I am thrilled. I talked my Celiac brother into one and he is "delighted to really enjoy the first sandwich in a year of being diagnosed". I recommend this machine to anyone who is having problems with gluten intolerance. PS- It also makes wonderful bread for my non GF husband!)
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Browninggold Best breadmaker
I have used a breadmaker for the last 16 years and this is the best machine so far. First off it makes a Full loaf of bread. Other bread machines made a cube of a loaf. So far I have made a few white loaves, sourdough and banana bread and all have come out great. With the size of this loaf it is very ez to slice the bread. Next I am going to make a meatloaf and try the jam recipes in this breadmaker. I will be using this Zojirushi regularly to make my bread. I do not see me buying bread from the store at all while I have this breadmaker. Simple to use and makes excellent breads.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by nursemichele Best breadmaker I have owned.
I have owned three other brands of breadmakers. This is by far the best. I specifically purchased this to make whole wheat loaves and it does a fantastic job. The two mixing blades make a huge difference. Make sure to get a good breadmachine book with recipes for both 1 1/2 lbs and 2lb loaves and watch the dvd that comes with the machine to see how to distribute the ingredients (that makes a huge difference). Also purchase bread machine yeast and make sure you are measuring the flour correctly (dvd shows how). By doing this I have had great results. You get what you pay for in this case. I'd highlly recommend this.
