Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Best machine I've owned
This is the third bread maker I've owned. It is by far the best. I've had it almost two years and make two to three loaves of bread a week. The loaves come out equally good whether I use the timer or start immediately.
The instruction manual has many great recipes. The ingredients are given in both cups/tsps. and grams. I have found that weighing the ingredients makes a far better loaf. I purchased a small scale many years ago from QVC that weights in both grams and ounces. and it's perfect.
Our favorite is the Honey Wheat recipe that is in the instruction manual.
I did not know QVC had this available, or I would have purchased from QVC.

This is one of my prized possessions in the kitchen. I have made bread, cakes, jellies and dough in it. Everything has turned out beautifully-the heating element on the lid is just enough to get nice browning on the top of the loaf. You cannot go wrong with this!

I did a lot of research before deciding on this bread maker. have just found out that i am gluten,wheat, & sesame sensitive. so needed a machine that does gluten free, now this is a lot of money for me to spend, i'm a senior and have to be careful, but after pretty much going without any bread product for last couple of months, i said i can't go without my sandwiches for ever,so started my research, now i never buy anything without reading reviews there are all most always bad reviews on any product. some folks just seem to find fault with everything, but the great reviews so far out weighted the few bad ones. i said this has to be a good machine, so just received it and am now trying to figure out what i need for ingredients for bread mostly until i get that down pat, as some people even though gave a great review said in the beginning it didn't come out so well. any how can't wait to try it and just know i'm going to love it,just hope i do not waste to many ingredients while learning. as they are expensive. wish me luck. just need to know can i enter change flours, as i had rather use one kind over another.only gave 4 stars as i haven't used it yet, just going by what most people say and at that price i can't imagine it not being a great machine, as you can get so many bread machines at a fraction of the cost of this one.

I purchased this bread machine a little over two years ago. It was expensive but I thought since I bake bread a couple times a week, I needed a very good machine, a real workhorse. It worked fine for the first two years but now the machine is not mixing the ingredients. Zojirushi Customer Service is very poor. They keep telling me I'm not measuring the flour correctly and I'm probably using too much flour. I told them I'm making the bread the way I have been successfully for the past two years and it's a recipe from their instruction manual! They don't listen to their customers. I would NEVER purchase an appliance from Zojirushi again!
Rated 5 out of 5 by JoyfulBren Better Than Wonderful
I love this machine!!! It is better than wonderful. The texture of the bread is wonderful. The smell of the bread is wonderful. The machine is very easy to use, which is beyond wonderful! My son made banana bread this week. We barely buy bread anymore from the store. I am learning more about this machine all the time. I do wish the panel was a little brighter, but I am able to read it. I absolutely love the way the loaf looks. Bread from this machine makes the best French Toast. Clean up is a breeze. I I would recommend this machine; my family loves it!

Out of the box the bread maker smelled like it had been sitting in a puddle of moldy water. I hoped the odor would dissipate once the machine had gone through a baking cycle. What we got was...a kitchen that smelled awful and bread that was inedible. Packing the item for return was equally a mess.
Rated 5 out of 5 by nocula Greatest Gluten Free Bread Machine
I made my first loaf of gluten free bread and it is perfect. The texture is like that of wheat bread, that is it not crumbly, I can enjoy a sandwich or toast and it holds together just fine. Next, I will try the raisin bread. I would recommend this to all gluten intolerant people. The bread on the market is so expensive and not as good as the bread from the Zojirushi Virtuoso Bread Maker. Thank you..
Rated 5 out of 5 by Shopper 312 The best!
This is by far the best bread maker I have ever had and I've had several different brands over the years. The bread always comes out perfectly and looks like a "real" loaf of bread, not a strange looking experiment. As long as the recipes are followed, I believe this machine is fool-proof. It is well worth the money.
