Pro and Con features of the Zojirushi Home Bakery Supreme
One of the two best rated breadmakers on the market, the Zojirushi Home Bakery Supreme 2-pound breadmaker has an average of 4,5 stars on more than 500 customer reviews.
According to more than 500 customers, the Zojirushi Home Bakery Supreme is a state of the art breadmaker which consistently produces excellent results
- Pro:It has many options and extra features, for many cooking options. Apart from various kinds of bread and dough, it allows you to easily prepare homemade jams, cakes and even meatloaf
- Pro: The fact that it bakes traditional, rectangular loaves is probably its best feature for me. The slices are really well shaped, and uniform, perfect for sandwiches and entertaining.
- Pro: The homemade settings option is very handy. You can program all the phases of a bread making cycle separately (e.g you can program the rising time, or baking time etc) if you want to use your own special homemade bread recipes, and you can also just use the appliance as a baking oven
- Pro: The 13 hour timer is a very nice feature. It allows you to program the appliance in the evening, so as to wake up with the irresisitible smell of freshly baked bread every morning, or just before you leave for work, so that you will have a freshly baked loaf waiting for you at dinner time.
- Pro: It is very quiet compared to other breadmaker models
- Pro: The pan is really non-stick and the kneading blades rarely get stuck in the bread like it often happens with other breadmakers
- Con: The appliance is quite large, larger than most similar models and takes up a great deal of countertop space. It is not suitable for small kitchens, as it is also quite heavy to take in and out of a cabinet for daily use
- Con: The appliance is quite expensive compared to similar models
Overall, the Zojirushi Home Bakery Supreme is an excellent foolproof breadmaker, although quite bulky and costly. If you rectangular shaped bread loaves are important to you, go for it!
