  • What buyers say about KBS Large 17-in-1 Bread Machine, 2LB All Stainless Steel Bread Make


    Since I can not eat regular bread, I am giving away my bread to friends until I perfect my low-fat bread making, and my conclusion is that keeping the Zojirushi and returning the Oster.


    The Zojirushi is the best bread making machine on the market, if you want to see comparisons of bread machines, just go to Youtube and type in "best bread making machine." The Zojirushi is the best bread making machine on the market, if you want to see


    You can modify any bread recipe you like for your bread machine, and here is the recipe for Wholesome Oatmeal Bread that you can try for the first time.


    I used to bake my bread in my oven with the old machine, but with the new one, I can see that it's quicker to bake in the machine.


    I looked at the wheat recipe in the Zojirushis manual but it doesn't look appealing, would that change anything?

    Common Questions

    Q:

    Does it have a special setting for gluten?

    A:

    It has a "Gluten Free" setting, and these came out perfect.

    Q:

    I'd like to hear from anyone who has made artisanal style breads, including baguettes, Italian breads, and other long-rise breads.

    A:

    It's great for that, there are three home made bread settings with rise times up to 13 hours, and I set a timer to go off when it's time to go to the next program.

    Q:

    Is it hard to avoid getting the yeast wet when I upgrade from my Panasonic SD-YD250?

    A:

    I bought my Zojirushi in March of 2010 and have been making bread with it ever since.

    Q:

    I am trying to decide between the Zojirushi Home Bakery Supreme 2-Pound-Loaf Breadmaker or the Virtuoso.

    A:

    I decided to use the Home Bakery because the Virtruso was out of stock. My brother/in-law has the Virtruso and I must say, there isn't hardly any difference with the motor, paddles, and overall functioning.

    Q:

    I want to make bread with lots of whole seeds, so I'm concerned about whether this will be able to handle it.

    A:

    I was told by Zo company that using more than 2 TBS of poppy seeds is too abrasive for their newer type of pan coating, so I decided to use only 1 TBS.
