I purchased this Zohirushi bread maker last year online. I have always heard good things about the Zohirushi brand, so I decided to buy it. The Zohirushi brand is just amazing. This bread maker makes the perfect bread every single time, and I am so happy I bought it. I would recommend this for beginner and expert bakers. Stability While in Use This machine is very sturdy, and it does not shake while in use at all. Performance Like I previously stated, this bread maker makes exquisite bread every single time I use it. The crust of the bread is always crispy and golden brown on the outside. It is warm and soft on the interior. Just perfect. Ease of Use If you follow the instructions, you can bake bread with ease. This bread maker does not take very much time to bake the bread at all. Durability This machine is very strong and durable. I use this bread maker once or twice per week, and it works just as well as the first day I purchased it.
