Zojirushi Virtuoso Breadmachine BB-PAC20
The Best Bread Machine
Horizontal Bread Pan
The Zojirushi Virtuoso has a 2lb horizontal bread pan to give you a more traditional loaf shape.
Dual Kneading Paddles
Many bread machines do not knead bread that well, especially the cheap machines. The Zojirushi Virtuoso has 2 kneading paddles and 700 watts of power the work the dough so good that some people use it as a bread mixer even when they are baking in the oven. We have tested its performance against many other bread machines and it easily out performs every time, especially when it comes to 100% whole wheat dough.
Lid Heating Element
Zojirushi has fixed the under cooked bread top issue that so many horizontal bread machines have by adding a heating element to the Virtuoso's lid that browns the top of your bread.
Great For Gluten Free Breads
Many bread machines have been made without thinking about gluten-free bread but the Zojirush Virtuoso has integrated gluten-free into its design. Not only does it have functions for gluten-free cycles but it has 10 tried and tested recipes included in the owners manual. If you are using store bought gluten-free breads, the stuff that squirrels and duck won't even eat, then you will be very pleased with homemade gluten-free bread made in the Virtuoso.
Built to Last
We opened up our flour model of the Zojirushi Virtuoso and were pleased to see how they have significantly beafed up the inner parts and pulleys beyond previous Zojirushi bread machine models. I would choose this bread machine to last longer than any bread machine we have used or tested.
Large Viewing Window
It is always good to see what is going on with your bread from time to time. The Virtuoso makes this easy with extra large viewing window so you don't have to open the lid and let all that precious heat out.
Bread Pan Handles
Removing your hot bread pan can sometimes be tricky or tough but Zojirushi has added easy to use handles on the Virtuoso that make it a cinch.
Zojirushi has made the Virtuosos functions menu larger for easier use.
The owners manual has 100 tried and true recipes to get you started, it may be a while before you go searching for a new recipe.
There are many other reasons to buy the Zojirushi Virtuoso over other bread machines, Zojirushi has always been better and the Virtuoso is simply the BEST.
