Pros: Very quiet, easy to clean. Fairly easy operation.
Cons: Now it is Feb2011, my bread coming out terrible. I would not buy a Zo!!
Breadman Pro TR850 broke. Zojirushi BBCC-X20 Bread Machine is my third bread machine, before that I used to make by hand 20 loaves of bread @ a time. My other two machines were Breadman, this machine is OK, but my breadman's made a better loaf of bread. I called the manufacture and they told me I should be using instant fast rising yeast instead of active dry yeast(that is not what they say in book). It does a great job mixing the dough but the baking result leaves something to be desired.I am editing my review after complaining for 2 months to Zo about my machine, they sent me a postage return to send machine back to them, they tested my machine and returned to me a new bread machine guess what the first machine must have been defective, because now I am getting a good loaf of bread! So if anyone else is having trouble with their machine, I urge you to keep contacting them and maybe they will send you a new machine.
It is Feb 2011 I think the machine is failing my bread has been coming out terrible!!
