  • What buyers say about Zojirushi Home Bakery Virtuoso Plus Breadmaker


    Since I can't eat regular bread, I'm giving away my Zojirushi to friends until I perfect my low-fat bread making, and my conclusion is " Keeping the Zojirushi and returning the Oster."


    If you want to see comparisons of bread machines, just search for "best bread making machine" and then go to Youtube and watch videos of people who have compared 3 or 4 bread machines and the Zojirushi won every time.


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


    The old machine only allowed me to bake bread in the oven when I didn't have time, but with the new one, I can see that when I have time, I will bake it in the machine.


    The wheat recipe in the Zojirushis manual doesn't look appealing, so would that change things?

    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. There isn't much difference with the motor, paddles, and overall functioning.

    Q:

    I want to make bread with lots of whole seeds, so I'm wondering if this can handle that.

    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'm going to use only 1 TBS of them.
