Miniature in size, you don’t have to worry about a miniature taste, as the Zojirushi knocks it out of the park with bread making. You may be wondering what the purpose of a small bread machine is, and it’s to simply provide enough for a family that’s 1-2 people – (okay, so not a family, but a couple or someone living alone!) Cute and compact in design, you can create just the right amount of bread for your needs.
Breakdown of the Features
There are a ton of features of the Zojirushi as they’re infamous for creating high-quality and versatile products. Being the only “mini” on our list and one of the only successfully mini’s we’ve seen lately on the market, the features of this include the following:
- Ability to produce 1 pound cakes or loaves of bread
- Various settings for cookie, fresh fruit, and pasta dough
- Quick-baking option
- LCD control panel, viewing window, carrying handle
- 13-hour delay timer
- Non-stick kneading blade and a non-stick pan
Instead of buying a bread maker you won’t use often because of how much it produces, you can now use the BB-HAC10 from Zojirushi and produce 1 pound of bread when you need it. If you live alone or with a significant other and don’t need much, you’ll enjoy that you won’t be wasting any ingredients or bread with this machine.
There are various settings for this bread maker, including settings for fresh fruit, pasta dough, cookie dough, and much more. With the ability to make more than bread, you’ll have versatility in options for what you can eat for dinner and dessert!
Of course, with any product in this market, non-stick is everything; without, you’d have a heck of a time trying to get your bread or dough out. The non-stick kneading blade allows you to get the bread out without it inserting itself into the bottom of the loaf.
The non-stick pan allows for optimal cleaning and removal of the bread itself. Having these two small features may seem as miniature as the machine, but provide great power through the convenience of usage.
The quick-bake cycle enables you to create as quick as you can. If you’re coming home from a long day out and want something as soon as possible without spending money, purchasing and using this feature will find your tummy well. Never worry about being so hungry and waiting too long again.
There aren’t many that come with the option of the bread maker being more mobile, which the BB-HAC10 does. The carrying handle and size of this machine allows you to take anywhere you need to. To keep it warm, bring this over to your dinner table for those to pick at when they want to during their dinner
Things We Loved
The size of the machine itself is an advantage, as it allows you to move it when you need to without breaking your back or having to get help. For those who are shorter and with smaller arms much like myself, you often have to have help in the kitchen for lifting and reaching. With this item, you no longer have that thought in your mind.
On top of being easier to move around the kitchen, you can also bring it to the table using the carrying handle. The ease of mobility with this machine is just one of the many attractive advantages of this product. The manual is also incredibly detailed and easy to understand.
Another advantage of this product is the fact that there are instructions and recipes included for those who haven’t used a bread maker at all. The fact that this is a mini that produces 1 pound will allow you to learn without wasting product.
One Little Annoyance
There’s only one major disadvantage of this product, but it’s also a selling point of the piece. If you like all of the features but are looking to feed more people, you probably won’t be purchasing this model. While it does do a great job at making bread, it only produces one pound per usage.
However, there are other Zojirushi products that may find you well in terms of production size.
Another disadvantage of this product is that there aren’t as many settings as one that produces larger loaves, but if you want those types of settings, you’ll need a bigger baking pan naturally. None of the aforementioned affects the performance of the product whatsoever.
The BB-HAC10 is a fantastic bread maker for the price and is a well-known reliable brand in the world of bread making. If you’re tired of over baking and no one eating the rest, you can purchase this bread maker to provide your household with a small amount. No longer will you need to waste ingredients and bread when you only produce an amount that will feel you and maybe one other.
