I am one of the few people privileged to have learned the art of baking fine bread at a relatively young age. Growing up, baking was not as easy as it is today. However, we managed to pull off baking great quality bread with the limited resource we had. The process was time consuming and very tiring; nothing like what it is today.
These days, with a good bread maker, anyone can make a good home made loaf of bread. Until now, everything I knew about Zojirushi breadmakers was from the tonnes of Zojirushi breadmaker review articles on the internet.
I recently acquired one Zojirushi breadmaker for myself and I must admit, it does give my hard earned bread making skills and experience a run for money. It proved to be a truly versatile breadmaker that can make anything from home made strawberry jam, meatloaf and even chocolate cake. It easily bakes bread weighing up to 2 pounds.
I have always heard people say how easy it is to use breadmakers. I had never imagined just how easy it could get till I tried it out. With the Zojirushi breadmaker, it is possible to fill you home with the aroma of freshly baked bread every day. The bread maker lets you bake like a season chef letting you dictate even the color of the crust by choosing between light, medium and dark.
This amazing breadmaker does everything for you, including kneading any type of dough. Its Twin rotating blades will knead everything including the heavier rye and whole wheat flour. I realized that it could bake cakes of different sizes although the standard size is approximated to be 9-5/8 by 17 by 12-1/5.
It comes supplied with a handy measuring cup, and a spoon to ensure all ingredients are added in the right proportion. It also has a viewing window to help you monitor the baking cycle. Its removable non-stick bread pan makes it very easy to clean.
I have always been a little skeptical when it comes to the use of technical gadgets; I usually find them very hard to operate. The Zojirushi Breadmaker is exceptionally different. I found the instruction manual very helpful. Its user friendly control panel, wide screen and up to 10 programmable settings are so easy to use anyone can figure it out. You can also have fun experimenting with new recipes.
If you have never baked anything in your life and think it’s too late to learn, then this is the bread maker for you.
