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.Read more ›
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.
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.

Love this so far. All bread has turned out fine. I did not like the white bread texture in the maker's book but switched it out for bread machine recipe and the texture was great.Published 1 month ago by Cynthia Roney
