I've been making bread in my Cuisinart Bread machine for my family until it broke down a few months ago. I have spent quite awhile doing research on various machines and was very impressed with the reviews that Zojirushi bread machines received. I decided on the Zojirushi Virtuoso because of the modification made with the heat element in the lid to help brown the top of the bread. I figured, that if I am going to invest this kind of money in a machine I want the one with updated features.
First, I am truly impressed with how quickly I received my purchase from Amazon. I bought the item on a Saturday and got free shipping (which was supposed to take 5-7 days) and it arrived two days later. The packaging was great, no damage to the box, padding inside to ensure that it didn't slide around.

When I unwrapped the machine I was immediately thrilled with the quality of the machine itself. Compared to my Cusinart bread machine you can tell you get what you pay for. The machine is solid and doesn't feel like tin like my previous machine. The bread pan is also impressive. I love the handles on each side (which is also a new feature on this Zojirushi model), the pan is also very solid with a good weight to it. Another big improvement from my previous machine is how the easy it is to insert and remove the pan into the machine (this is the one major thing I hated about the Cusinart bread machine).

The first bread I made was Challah (egg bread). This is used on the dough setting then braided by hand and finished in the oven. The dough setting worked perfectly. The double paddle made a big difference in the texture of the dough. I then made a bread machine recipe for oatmeal bread (my mom used to make this when I was a kid). I found the recipe online.

I have had my Zojirushi breadmaker for about 2 years now. It started making an awful noise a few weeks back and I was told the belt was most likely coming off the pulley. The machine is impossible to get into to check ourselves, so we phoned Zojirushi and were told there was no service centre in our province. We have to ship it to another province. I make bread regularly and this is a great inconvenience. Would I buy this machine! I had a Black and Decker before this machine and never had a problem. When I got my Zojirushi, I gave my other machine to my daughter. I am disappointed in this product, and will most likely buy a new breadmaker (different product) rather than ship is away for repair.

The best bread machine ever. Makes delicious loaves and I don't even use the extra vital wheat gluten the recipes call for. I live in Saskatchewan and the the flour I buy is excellent and so far all recipes have turned out perfect without the vital wheat gluten. The 100% whole wheat bread is the lightest I have ever made. I am extremely happy with this bread machine.

This bread machine is quiet in operation and seems well-made, so far; we've had it for only a couple of weeks. The bread loaves are evenly browned and have a good texture. Before this, we had a Cuisinart which kept malfuncioning - we had to have it replaced three times and finally gave up. The one feature about the Cuisinart I liked was that it gave a signal for removing the paddle if you wanted to remove it; the Zojirushi doesn't offer that option, and I haven't yet figured out whether it's even possible take the paddles out before the final rise with this machine -- but on the other hand, the paddles don't seem to create much of a problem; just sometimes a bit of crust gets caught beneath one or another and makes it more difficult to release the loaf when it's done. Altogether this seems like a really good machine; I hope it lasts well.

The recipes that come with it seem to contain too much sugar and salt, so I've adjusted them so that they have half the salt called for, and decreased the sugar as well to achieve a good balance for the yeast. I also use olive oil instead of butter, and add it with the liquid.

Amazon did not package it well -- it just came in the rather flimsy, coloured Zojirushi carton, without even being taped closed -- anyone could open the carton in about 5 seconds.

Fine machine. I did buy the breville custom loaf machine first, and used it for 2 weeks before returning it for this model.

I immediately made adjustments to the default settings, by making a 'home made' setting to fine tune the cycles.

The bread pan is really why I bought this one, it makes a nice rectangular loaf, much better size than the breville, which I found was too wide for my toaster.

The breville interface is much nicer than the zojirushi. Like one other reviewer mentioned, the perfect machine would be the zojirushi pan in the breville box and interface, but that doesn't exist, so the zo is the better of the two options.

I use it about twice a week, and each time the results are great. I did find that the 'keep warm' option is a little too high temperature, so the crust gets too thick if you leave the loaf in too long once the ready beep sounds.

One thing I don't like about this machine is that there is no way to silence the beeps, so it beeps about 40 mins in on the regular cycle for the add ingredients notification, and not just one beep, but about 20, which is annoying, particularly if you're making a loaf to be ready for when you wake up. The completion beeps are also annoying.
