Zojirushi BB-HAC10 Home Bakery 1-Pound-Loaf Programmable Mini Breadmaker
Simplify baking with the Home Bakery Mini BB-HAC10
Zojirushi Home Bakery Mini breadmaker can be enjoyed 7 days a week. What's more, its 1 pound loaf is the perfect size for smaller households to savor the taste of freshly baked bread every day without waste. Its compact and slim design makes the Home Bakery Mini ideal for kitchens with limited countertop space. For versatility and ease-of-use that's always in great taste, think Zojirushi.
Until breadmakers were invented, baking bread at home was not the easiest thing to do. It was time consuming and easy to make mistakes during the process. Today, Zojirushi breadmakers can do it almost automatically, but the warmth and the aroma of the bread as it fills your house are virtually the same as it was centuries ago. The technology may be new, but the anticipation of eating freshly baked bread never gets old.

Simplify Making Homemade Bread
The BB-HAC10 Mini Breadmaker makes a 1-pound loaf ideal for singles and smaller families with three bread textures to choose from. The quick baking cycle prepares breads in under 2 hours using your own fresh ingredients.
Use Fresh Ingredients
First, prepare fresh ingredients. Quality of the finished bread will depend on ingredients used. Avoid mixing in old or stale ingredients.
Attach kneading Blade
The kneading blade is an especially important part of the breadmaker. Make sure the blade is properly attached.
Next, measure ingredients accurately. The more accurate the measurements are, the better the finished bread will be. Rough measurements will result in rough bread.
Add Ingredients in Order
Ingredients have lives. There are compatibilities among ingredients, too. Through trials and errors, we found a right order for adding ingredients. Please add in the order of liquids, powders, and yeast to be assured your bread comes out the way you want.
Finally, make sure to choose the right course setting for your perfect loaf of bread.
Inner Cooking Pan
The bread maker provides two blades for thorough dough kneading and a higher rise that bakes a large traditional rectangular shaped 1 lb. loaf.
Easy to Use:
User-friendly LCD control panel.
Sturdy handle for easy carrying.

UPDATE: 10/08..Still in love with this 'lil machine. Easy to experiment with additional ingredients that may or may not enhance final product.
MORE: The bread made with the included recipis is some of the best bread that I have ever eaten, the only exception being Ciabatta from a few local outlets. HINT: Spray the paddle with Pam type stuff, load the machine, the thing rarely sticks in the baked loaf....
MORE 4/09: Have been making "Sally Lunn" with the recipi from Germans bread book, very good taste and nice toast. Keeps well also.
MORE: 5/09: Every so often the paddle gets stuck in the loaf. I have found that a button hook works super to pull out the paddle.
Years ago I purchased one of the earliest commercial bread makers available to consumers. It was a thrill to have such a thing, as I love fresh bread, but I am also a well-known yeast killer. Needless to say, the technology was new... it worked for about a year, and only when making one recipe - Basic White Bread. I decided not to get it fixed (the price tag for repairs was over 100 bucks), and just wrote the whole idea off.
Last fall - after about ten years had passed! - I decided to try again, only this time I had the internet on my side. I am so glad I looked as hard as I did! This little machine is fantastic.
I've had my Zoji for about a month now and I've only had one failure - it was my fault, the water I put in was just too hot, and I killed the yeast (no new thing there). Otherwise, I've made about 13 successful loaves for myself, family & friends! My Challa loaf and my basic white have now been perfected. Wheat and quick breads turn out great, too.
I've even figured out how to use the soft bread cycle and a sweet loaf dough, and remove it at just the right time, then roll the dough up with cinnamon or slice it and put layers of filling, whatever you can think of, then get it back in the pan quickly for the rest of the last rise and the baking. As long as you are prepared and do your math with the clock so you can work fast, this works great.
The other plus is that the loaf size, at just a pound, is perfect for singles like me. I do not have to freeze so much extra bread, and it gets eaten before it gets stale or bad. Do yourself a solid and get some bread flour, it does make a difference to the rising and the texture of the loaf.
The zoji has some great features that may not be apparent when reading the manual (go to [...] and download the manual in PDF form - I do this with every single appliance I am serious about purchasing and it really helps make the best decision for you). The water I put in is truly cool to lukewarm. I learned by watching my Zoji that during the "rest" phase (the first phase), the water is at the bottom of the pan and the machine warms it up during this phase to the perfect temperature. I know that sounds trivial, but remember this is how I always kill yeast! So... biggest problem for me: SOLVED.
Next is to put the ingredients in as they tell you to - mostly to keep the yeast dry and on the top of the flour until it begins to knead. Another thing I learned about this by watching, to be absolutely sure, is to put in the water first, then just HALF the flour, put the rest of the ingredients on top of that flour (except your add-ins like raisins, there is a beep later for that), lastly put the remaining flour on top, then make a small dip right in the middle and put all the yeast right there. If you do this, when the Zoji starts the first knead, the yeast sinks straight to the bottom into the water - which is just perfect.
Clean up is very easy - just be sure to get all the bread out of the paddle and it's assembly, and dry everything properly until the next loaf.
I love this little machine. Zojirushi is the more expensive brand, and even though I am on a tight budget, I am happy I got this one. I can see why it costs a little more - it's great!
UPDATE: It's been a little over a year later, and I am still just as thrilled with my zoji. It has a permanent place on my (limited) countertop. For the record, I have used it consistently about 6 times a month, and there has been no change in the machine's performance. I consider that really durable for such an item.
The only thing I have learned to do different from when I first reviewed is for better performance in the winter months: my house is usually cold, because gas is $$, so I give it a little boost (VERY LITTLE - remember how I kill yeast) by putting hot tap water into the pan before use. Let that sit for about 3 mins while you gather ingredients, then pour it out, and put in your regular cold tap water in the amount for the recipe.
A good tip for more stubborn recipes is to add a miniscule amount of ginger on top of the yeast. Ginger will act as a booster to the yeast, it makes it work longer and harder. But remember you only need a little - less than a dash for this sized pan - or else the taste of the bread will change.
Another tip is to get a decent brand's box of organic Vital Wheat Gluten, especially if you can't find bread flour. 1 Tbls per recipe for this sized pan is about right. Sorry, anti-gluten folks, but this is a wonderful product.
If you want to try something whole grain with a fantastic taste, get some organic Spelt flour. Take your typical white bread recipe and halve the white flour with Spelt. Add 1 Tbls gluten. You may need to add water or flour as it kneads - just keep an eye on it. Remember this is a heavier flour, like all whole grains, so it needs a bit more observing.
One more tip: get yourself a skinny jar scraper made of silicon, and a small tupperware of flour. Keep these by the machine as it kneads. The jar scraper (must be silicon!) is a great tool to scrape off the sides of the pan for the more stubborn recipes, and the flour comes in handy when you find the mix is just too goopy. But be CAREFUL, as always, when adding stuff while it kneads... avoid the paddle if scraping, and avoid getting product over the side if adding some. It WILL burn down there.
All in all, even with the recipes you have to work a little harder with, this is the best appliance I have ever purchased. And I have purchased a LOT of them!!!
I even give my French Bread loaf as a birthday gift, and that really lights up their eyes to see (and SMELL) a warm loaf of fresh baked bread with nothing more than a ribbon around it.
UPDATE, January 1, 2011: I was inspired by another reviewer (of another appliance) here today to update again. Not much to say, other than my Zoji is still working perfect and I am still thrilled with this little machine. But it's important to keep you informed of both the good and the bad, so here I am again, 25 days shy of 2 years, to tell you that if you want to bake bread without a lot of fuss, the Zoji is TOTALLY worth your money. PS, thanks Melissa! :)
Now all I have to do is find a mid-size reliable pressure cooker.... any ideas, folks?
UPDATE: August 30, 2011: This thing is amazing. It just keeps working great. I ventured into other areas, too - Olive Oil bread, banana bread, nut breads, cakes. I'm going to try just using the dough cycle so I can take it out and use it by hand (like pizza dough, kolaches [sp?] or crescent rolls). Not sure if it will work, but at least I won't have killed the yeast before I ruin the dough (and will still only have myself to blame, not my lil zoji. Heh.)
UPDATE: December 7, 2011: Still works fantastic!!!! Almost three years, and NO issues with it at all. WOW.
BTW - I finally bought a pressure cooker. :)
UPDATE: August 2, 2013: Added my Challa recipe to this 'mini-blog of a review' and wanted you all to know that my baby zoji still works great! What is it now - 4.5 years? Holy cats. That's a good appliance.
UPDATE: August 31, 2014: Five and a half years and still going strong! Holy Kitchen Counter Appliances Batman!!!! Now, at 49, I've had to slow down on my bread consumption for health reasons, but - every single time i use the baby zoji, it still works perfect. ONE SPECTACULAR LITTLE MACHINE.
This was the first time I have ordered anything from Amazon.com; and I am very pleased with their service. It was fast and shipping was FREE! The other place I looked wanted the same price plus an additional $40 to ship to the Islands . . .
Any fool can bake perfect bread using the recipes included with the machine.
This machine is VERY Quiet--I was a little concerned because I live in a high-rise filled with old folks and I like to do stuff like this in the middle of the night. Many bread machines have a problem with the pan attachment doing a lousy job which means that the pan rattles around in the machine and it sounds like a bunch of elves are trapped in there hurling marbles against the sides of the machine--not so with this one.
The flip side of this coin is that the notification beeps are also not very loud--I just set the stop watch on my wristwatch--I know that the "add stuff" (like raisins, etc) comes 17 minutes into the "rapid-bake" cycle and act accordingly. Also there is a countdown clock on the face of the machine so you can check at any time to see how much longer before it's done,
Caution--this machine is not at all programmable. I was aware of this when I purchased it, but my thought was "Well so what? What am I going to want to program anyway?" Since then I have become interested in sourdough which takes a much longer rising time than the machine allows--OOPS! Also, When using recipes from other sources (notably "Bread Machine Magic" which has all recipes in one-pound size) I sometimes find that the loaf is a little on the damp side and I'd like to cook it a little longer, but this machine lacks the flexibility to do so.
The finished loaf from this machine fits into a container 6"Lx4.5"Wx6"H. I believe that the slices will fit into a normal toaster, although I don't have a toaster and haven't tried it.
Last caution--I am not a big bread eater, but this bread is so good that I find myself easily consuming half of a fresh-baked loaf when my intention was just a "taste test". I'm an older single guy, and I find myself eating about a loaf a day (this will probably change as the novelty wears off) so if there's more than one of you, you may want to go for the larger Zojirushi.
The larger machine is practically the same price as the smaller one (only a tiny bit more expensive) and has some programming flexibility. Although it is advertised as baking 1, 1.5, or 2 pound loaves, I have read that it does a lousy job on the 1 pound loaf (just not enough dough for the big pan, I guess).
See the Yahoo bread-machine group for lots of helpful info.
If you're like me, you'll need some way to slice evenly. After much research, I ended up with the Black & Decker EK700 electric knife. It's also available from Amazon, it's cheap, and it does a good job. You will not need to purchase an additional "slicing guide".
Nothing like waking up in the morning to the smell of fresh baking bread (timer feature allows you to set it up the night before for a delayed start).
I guess you can tell that I think my money was well spent on this machine!
