Bake Bread with Ease

BB-PAC20BA Baking Steps
Use Fresh Ingredients

First, prepare fresh ingredients. Quality of the finished bread will depend on ingredients used. Avoid mixing in old or stale ingredients.

Attach Blades

Blades are especially important parts of the breadmakers. Make sure the blades are properly attached.

Measure Ingredients

Next, measure ingredients accurately. The more accurate the measurements are, the better the finished bread will be. Rough measurements will result in a rough bread.

Add Ingredients in Order

Ingredients have lives. There are compatibilities among ingredients, too. Through trials and errors, we found a right order for adding ingredients. Please add in the order of liquids, powders, and yeast to be assured your bread comes out the way you want.

Select Course

Finally, make sure to choose the right course setting.

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 again...no! 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.

We've been using this machine fairly regularly for about 8 months and it has made fantastic bread - best of any machine we've had. Recently the socket on the stir bars stripped and they no longer stir so the bread isn't mixed properly. Would have been a 5-star rating if not for this issue. Waiting to hear about a replacement.

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.

Received the unit via UPS in a very flimsy badly damaged factory type coloured carton. As you would see in a store.
Unit was NOT packed in a secondary carton for safe shipping by Amazon.ca as was my Zojirushi rice cooker.
This resulted in damage to all corners and severe punctures to side of carton. The unit was supported by 4 styro-foam supports which helped to keep unit centred in carton and the punctures did not strike unit,however unit must have had a severe drop as the lower styro-foam support was crushed by the force.
It was on the heavy motor side causing minor damage to the plastic surrounding one of the base feet on the back right side.
In view of all this ZERO STARS Awarded to UPS and Amazon.ca for all this.I have notified Amazon.ca by phone regards my concerns.
However an immediate unit test was in order. I chose to make the Gluten free course. The result I am pleased and relieved to report was a perfect loaf.
Next I tried the Jam course for Marmalade. It was a resounding flop.
I next tried the regular whole wheat course. The result again I am happy and relieved to report was a perfect loaf.
So I am relieved that after all the mistreatment at the hands of UPS the machine works very well.
Therefore I hereby award 5 STARS to Zojirushi for their Virtuoso BB-PAC20 machine.

March 1st 2012,
Going by new reviews see that I am not the only one with my comments about bad inadequate non-existant packing and carton damage by shipper UPS.
Box was just dumped on my doorstep unannounced. Per the tracking I was able to make myself available on the due delivery date,otherwise the item could be picked up by any passer-by seeing the highly attractive coloured factory carton.
I hope Amazon CA is taking note.
