One of the top brands for home bread machines is Zojirushi, as of 2015. The Zojirushi BB-CEC20 bread machine was rated the best bread machine by AtTheBakersBench.com, and the Zojirushi BB-PAC20 was rated 4.7 out of five stars from 751 Amazon reviewers.
Both bread machines have 10 pre-programmed settings for baking a variety of bread types and other treats, including wheat bread, quick bread, cake, jam and sourdough. Two kneading paddles provide a soft texture to the bread, and the light, medium and dark crust settings allow for customization of the final product. The products are easy to clean because the pan is non-stick, which leaves little residue behind when baking is completed.
