I Hate My Zojirushi Breadmaker!
This may be the worst $240 I ever spent at King Arthur Flour. I thought a bread machine would be a wonderful addition to the ranch. After tons of research (because I'm compulsive that way), I fell for the hype about the Zojirushi. Sometimes you pay more and get a better product. Sometimes, you just get taken.
I have not been able to make one decent loaf of bread in that infernal machine. I've tried all varieties of breads and mixes, but I can buy better tasting bread at my grocery store. I find this very ironic, since I have no trouble making homemade bread by hand.
I can't bring myself to pitch the Zojirushi, so it has remained at the ranch for the last several years, taking up valuable counter space. I can't sell it because I honestly think it is just a piece of expensive junk. So, buyer beware! Try some other model. (My friend has an old BreadMan that works well.)
