The Zojirushi BBCCX20 Bread Machine makes your life easier when it comes to making fresh bread at home. If you want to get rid of your old bread machine then this Zojirushi bread machine is the best replacement you can have for your kitchen. It has very handy features which enables you to make upto 2lb loaf of bread, cakes, jams and sourdough starter along with several other delicious recipes.
Smart Timer Does It All
This Zojirushi BBCCX20 bread machine is equipped with a programmable timer set which can be programmed to operate upto a maximum of 13 hrs. This setting is ideal for those who want to have fresh home made bread early in the morning and do not like to keep themselves waiting for it. You just tell the Zojirushi BBCCX20 when would you like to have your bread and it will get it ready by that time. This is done by delaying the baking process via Timer key on the control panel. This bread machine is one of a kind that not only makes bread but also has to ability to prepare non-bake items. It can also make cakes and many other types of bread. Some of the recipes are given with the product instruction manual but you can create your own. I also prefer to use my own bread recipes.
More Power in Mixing Ingredients
Zojirushi BBCCX20 features not one but two kneading paddles for mixing the ingredients thoroughly and thus making a perfect dough for your bread and other recipes. My previous bread machine came with only one kneading paddle and at times when I put some extra dough in it or the dough gets thicker, that machine came to a stand still and the paddle gets stucked. Then I have to split the dough and complete the mixing in two cycles but this is not the case with Zojirush bread machine. This bread machine also is a bonus when it comes to preparing dough for pizzas since the yeast in a pizza dough requires a lot of kneading effort and these powerful set of kneading blades have always been equal to the task and worked like magic for me. I can even watch the entire baking process and mixing of my dough from a viewing window without even opening the lid of this machine. The viewing window is provided on top and is almost as large as the size of its baking pan.
Bread Crust of Your Choice
It has also excellent crust settings which allows you to make bread crust of your choice. You just have to press the Crust Control key on the control panel and choose the desired crust color. This functions lets to make light, medium and dark colored crust. I prefer the light and medium crust settings which looks nice and is also pleasant to eat.
The only thing that I did not like about the Zojirushi BBCCX20 bread machine is its weight. This 15 lbs bread maker is not as light weight as it may seem and requires some effort for changing its position within a kitchen but if you have a fixed spot for your bread machine then I do not find any reasons why you shouldn’t have Zojirushi BBCCX20 bread machine in your home specially if you want to delight your family with fresh home made bread with ease.
