Zojirushi BB-PAC20 Home Bakery Virtuoso Breadmaker
If you want a bread maker that can do it all, the Zojirushi BB-PAC20 Home Bakery Virtuoso Breadmaker is the choice for you. It can make almost any type of bread, including white, raisin, artesian, and everything in between. This bread maker can also bake cakes, crafts pizza dough, make meat loaf, and will even create some of the most flavorful jams you’ve ever tasted.
The quick bread making feature takes about two hours, but the basic bread types it will make during this cycle like French, white, or wheat, rival the taste and appearance of bread that’s been baked longer. The feature setting this machine apart from the others is the cover-mounted heating coil allowing you to have golden brown crust on every side of the loaf.
This machine also lets you program in your own knead, rise, and baking times so you can create the loaf of bread of your choice. If you remove the twin kneading paddles right before the baking cycle, the horizontally shaped loaf will come out looking like it was made at the corner bakery, with no holes or paddle marks on the bread.
This is the most expensive bread maker on the list but it’s packed with features and comes closest to making your loaves look like they were crafted at the local bakery. It comes protected by a one year warranty.
