Best breadmaker!

Gabor V., Newegg
14 May 2010
  • Summary: For those that say only use the light crust setting, I prefer medium (which is more like bread made in Europe). I can hardly wait to try other variations. Wait for a sale. Usually they mark these down every so often.
  • Pros: Before my wife got home I already had the first loaf going. She said she would not eat any of that as she was sure that something would go wrong (lets say I don't have much in common with Betty Crocker). When all was said and done, she had to beg me to try a piece - perfect results. For first try...
  • Cons: Not really a con, but don't forget to put the mixing blades in before the ingredients. Hope that only happens once. :)

Nice Breadmaker

Brett R., Newegg
24 March 2010
  • Summary: This breadmaker has been reviewed by individuals of varying ability. At least one ("ConcernedConsumer") has included in his/her review some of the most ridiculous and unwarranted alarmist nonsense yet discovered in a NewAig review.
  • Pros: Very nice breadmaker. Horizontal loafage. Honorable Zojirushiness.
  • Cons: Dishwashers administer appx. half a can of whoop-rass per load cycle to the surface coating (and possibly the blade mechanism) of the pan. As should be obvious, two runs through a dishwasher exposes the pan to the equivalent of a whole can, which, it should be understood, is sufficient whoop-rass...

Ok machine, but not worth it

Martin B., Newegg
15 January 2010
  • Summary: At this price point, you would expect a fire and forget machine. Unfortunately my experience thus far has not been that. Mixes well and strong, but during rising, if the dough isn't handled manually to better kneed and distribute the dough in the pan, you end up with a lop-sided wart log.
  • Pros: Sturdy, seems to have a strong motor
  • Cons: Manual intervention always required if you don't want alien looking wart bread Price for performance, not worth the money

Great Bread Maker

Henry C., Newegg
7 October 2009
  • Summary: Have made a beer pizza dough that was just excellent.

  • Cons: none

Works Great

James B., Newegg
24 August 2009
  • Summary: Hoping that is stands up to the rough beating it gives the dough.
  • Pros: mmmmmm... homemade bread! Works good and I was really surprised how well it kneaded the dough. Bread is always evenly mixed with no flour spots in loaf.
  • Cons: none

Zojirushi bread machine

William c., Newegg
16 May 2009
  • Summary: I wish I had not bought it...very disappointing machine
  • Pros: Highest rated most versatile machine out there Makes horizontal loaf
  • Cons: Very sensitive to amounts of liquids and type of yeast used. Failed after only a few months of use. I had to pay for return shipping to service center....very expensive. An overrated machine.

Wow.

Gary P., Newegg
12 May 2009
  • Summary: I trusted the reviews I found here on Newegg to guide my purchase. I'm glad I did. I took the maker out of the box, rinsed the pan, followed the instructions, pushed two buttons - WHAMMO! Perfect loaf of bread. I can make buttermilk biscuits from scratch in a cast iron skillet, corn bread, too.
  • Pros: Solid construction and attractive. All parts included. Works exactly as advertised. Produces excellent product. Instructions and recipes included. Simple to use. Ridiculously easy cleanup.
  • Cons: The instructions could be a little better,especially where the kneading blades were concerned. I was worried when they didn't "lock" into place, and the instructions led me to believe that they should be secure. Well, evidently they don't exactly lock down. Potentially I could have damaged my uni...

You've got your crust

Lawrence G., Newegg
9 April 2009
  • Pros: Great control and great results. I don't know why a standard horizontal loaf is so much more appealing than a vertical loaf-- but it is. After some tinkering I got this to make an excellent 100% whole wheat loaf, something I've never been able to do with any other breadmaker.
  • Cons: The recipes in the accompanying manual seem to be off. If I use the prescribed amount of water, the dough does not form well. I find I have to use 150% of the water called for to get good results. I wonder if it is due to the extreme arid conditions in Boston? Er, probably not.

Good bread maker

Barbara M., Newegg
8 April 2009
  • Pros: Heavy duty; rock solid; makes big loaves
  • Cons: Still trying to figure this out, but it seems to make lopsided bread no matter what I try (not terribly lopsided, but more than I would have expected.) The paddles that are inside the bread pan are hard to clean.
