Hmmmm, nothing beats the smell of freshly baking bread wafting through the house. The Hammacher Schlemmer Institute put the Best Bread Maker through rigorous testing and at the end of the tests it was determined that the best bread maker really was the best based on its performance. My that’s a lot of bests. Unfortunately this bread maker is no longer available through Hammacher but we did manage to find the best bread maker on Amazon.
The Zojirushi BBCCX20 Home Bakery Supreme Bread Machine turns out bread just how I like it with a nice lightly colored crust and a moist, fluffy center. With this bread machine you can say goodbye to the days of over or undercooked bread with burnt crusts.
And just how is the excellence in quality achieved? Well unlike most other brands, the Zojirushi Home Bakery Supreme Bread Machine has two kneading blades which ensure that the ingredients are thoroughly mixed.
And regardless of what type of bread you like – white, wholemeal, multgrain or rye, or gluten free, you can bake delicious family sized 2lb loaves in the best bread machine.
- A 13 hour timer that lets you know when the loaf is ready
- It has 8 baking cycle options which includes a pre-heat mode to warm the pan
- The kneading phase stretches the gluten strands
- Three rising and three stir down phases
- Baking phase
- Check out how the baking process is coming along, through the large viewing window
- The bread pan is made of non-stick anodized aluminum.
There is also a quick baking cycle that can make a loaf of bread in under 2 hours – you do need to use rapid rise yeast for this.
Now here is another great feature of the Best Bread Machine, you can use it to make jam, cakes and meatloaf and you can store up to three of your favorite bread recipes. It also works as a portable oven, so you can make other dishes such as meatloaf or lasagna without heating up your larger oven. Talk about versatile.
