5.0 out of 5 stars Good bread-maker
I've bought this bread machine roughly two months ago, and this is my first one. I've read many reviews on this bread-maker both positive and negative and after playing with it for about a couple of months I can state that this machine can bake bread of very good quality. Unless you are very unlucky and got a defective machine most negative reviews I read are result of...

3.0 out of 5 stars Decent First Time Breadmaker - but bakes an uneven crust.
Zojirushi BB-CEC20BA Home Bakery Supreme, Black/Stainless
Was very excited to be buying my first breadmaker and decided to read as many reviews as possible, settling finally on the Zojirushi Home Bakery Supreme. First Impressions were that it was well packaged to avoid the rough handling of the local delivery company. The machine is very smart and matches my...

5.0 out of 5 stars Zojirushi BB-CEC20BA,
This review is from: Zojirushi BB-CEC20BA Home Bakery Supreme, Black/Stainless (Kitchen)It has been used for 4 weeks and we can make fresh bread without any problem. We can use olive oil to replace the butter, reduce sugar, reduce salt which make healthy bread by our own. Highly recommend to those who is looking for home made healthy bread and do not have experience in makig bread.
5.0 out of 5 stars heavenly bread,
This review is from: Zojirushi BB-CEC20BA Home Bakery Supreme, Black/Stainless (Kitchen)Oh, the scent of fresh baked bread fills my home often since my new bread maker purchase. I make bread every week, often every 2nd day and I have yet to try a recipe that does not work perfectly! Easy to use instructions, easy recipes and wonderful easy to clean bread pan and paddles. The results are amazing, I don't buy store bought bread anymore. The bonus, I know EXACTLY what went into every loaf, every ingredient, as well as the TLC.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great great great,
This review is from: Zojirushi BB-CEC20BA Home Bakery Supreme, Black/Stainless (Kitchen)This is a great product. While all of this can be done by hand and in a conventional oven, there is much to be said for automation. I like having the bread take care of itself while I do other stuff. Some recipes can be setup before going to bed to start kneading in the wee hours of the morning so its ready by the time the family is coming down for breakfast to the smell of fresh bread. The various menu options including whole wheat and dough (for pizza or for unconventional sizes you wish to bake in another pan in the oven) are very useful. The large size allows baking a 2lb loaf, which is roughly the size of a store-bought loaf of pre sliced bread. The bread will stay good for 1-2 weeks in a bread box. Major benefits are knowing what you're eating, trying whole-wheat and other grain/flour options (several great books available on Amazon), and avoiding preservatives. The taste of fresh bread is simply amazing. One thing to consider is the size of the machine, which in our house goes on the floor of the entry to stay out of sight, only to be taken out once a week to bake the bread.
4.0 out of 5 stars Great bread maker,
This review is from: Zojirushi BB-CEC20BA Home Bakery Supreme, Black/Stainless (Kitchen)I upgraded to the Zojirushi bread maker after having used my entry level model for a number of years. I really like my new machine and I feel it's well worth the money. The double paddles ensure everything is mixed evenly and I love how it makes standard shaped loaves as opposed to the tall, weird loaves my old machine made. I've been happily making breads and doughs every other day since it arrived - I see this as being a long, happy relationship!
1.0 out of 5 stars Not Reliable at All. Broke a second one after only 5 months,
This review is from: Zojirushi BB-CEC20BA Home Bakery Supreme, Black/Stainless (Kitchen)I bought the white model in October 2011 and when it arrived it was not able to cook any bread at all. It seems that the heating element was not heating enough and all the bread we tried to make were under cooked. We returned it to Amazon (thanks for the great service) and bought the Black model to see if it will act the same way. It was able to cook all the bread recipe we tried but after a couple of months, the kneading cycle began to be noisy and it felt like there was broken gears or something like that. then the noise disappeared but this week end, the kneading was very load and suddenly the machine stopped and we hear a humming sound like if the electric motor was ON but without any motion.We removed the baking pan to see if it was causing the trouble but the problem comes from the machine, not the pan. Now we are stuck with this broken machine that I hope I will be able to have replaced under warranty. It is impossible to open it since the company put some anti theft screws everywhere.
Very deceived by this machine and by the Zojirushi company. Not reliable and poor manufacturing quality.
After the repair, this one works fine now. Still hard to do gluten free brad.
5.0 out of 5 stars No Problems/Perfect loaves,
This review is from: Zojirushi BB-CEC20BA Home Bakery Supreme, Black/Stainless (Kitchen)I used The Best Gluten Free Family Cookbook by Donna Washburn and Heather Butt. I chose a Canadian cookbook because of the difference in American and Canadian flour. I baked the recipe for stuffing a turkey. It was so perfect you can't imagine and the stuffing was to die for.
This is my first breadmaker and I can't imagine one better. It was so quiet, doesn't weigh much and was fast. I was paying about $8.00 per loaf of gluten free bread and now can make my own which taste even better.
This was a completely positive experience and I recommend the breadmaker and the cookbook heartily.
5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect results,
This review is from: Zojirushi BB-CEC20BA Home Bakery Supreme, Black/Stainless (Kitchen)A big thank you to all who rated this bread maker so favourably, and for sharing so many tips and experiences of using the machine. This is my first break maker, received it two days ago, and today I baked my first loaf of whole wheat bread. It turned out perfectly and I've just enjoyed a wonderful sandwich. I will be using this machine regularly, and trying all sorts of different types of loaves now that I see how easy it is.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Amazing Product from Amazon !!,
This review is from: Zojirushi BB-CEC20BA Home Bakery Supreme, Black/Stainless (Kitchen)Amazon did it again !! Thank you Amazon for selecting this product for sale. I love my new breadmaker. This is not my first bread maker... I have had other "top of the line" machines, and was happy with them.. until along came Zojirushi.
It is indeed the Queen of machines. It is exactly as presented... and the instructions are simple and well laid out.... the recipes are excellent... I will admit that I thought that I had already found the ultimate recipes.... they were easily ajusted for the new larger machine. It is a pleasure to use this machine for large loaves and know that the bread is not going to be stuck all over the lid of the machine... I love it !!In fact, I love it so much that I have ordered 2 more for gifts !
