The menu settings include white bread, wheat bread, quick bread, sour dough starter, dough, cake, and jam. You can also set the unit to memorize 3 of your favorite personal recipes thanks to the homemade menus. It delivers an evenly baked bread with an appetizing shape and a crust that you determine how baked you like it to be, from the 3 crust shades available. The Sour Dough Starter gets sourdough ready in a little over 2 hours and a regular bread cycle lasts around 3 hours. For gluten-free bread, you have to select the Whole Wheat cycle that lasts a little longer because it takes more time to knead heavier flour like whole wheat or rye. Customers say they have tried everything in the BB-CEC20, including meatloaf and chocolate cake, and the result was a success. You can even make healthy jam all year round and the machine will not only knead your cake dough, but it will also bake it.
Zojirushi BB-CEC20 comes in white and black and stainless-steel finishes that please most tastes when it comes to décor and style. It’s 17” wide x 8” deep x 12” high and weighs an annoying 20 pounds. Customers say this is its major flaw that makes it cumbersome because you have to have plenty of counter room to fit it and strength to move it. The LCD control panel includes all the buttons and a screen that displays the time for easy setting and the window on the on the top lets you watch the baking process. The bread pan is coated with a non-stick layer that helps it come out nice and easy and the resulted bread is a rectangular 2-lbs soft and fluffy one.
You will find it a little louder than other models, but it’s nothing to worry about, especially because the noise is not followed by movement that would make the unit walk on the counter. Once you get the hang of it, it is easy to use, practical, and very convenient. It comes with measuring spoons and cup to help you adjust the ingredients and an instruction manual with CD to get you through the using steps. You will also get a bamboo cutting board and a great bread knife. You will love the delay start and the preheat cycle, as well as the ease of cleaning the machine.
