Meet Zojirushi’s Full Breadmaker Lineup: Choosing the Right Breadmaker for You

As you know, at Zojirushi we draw inspiration from daily life. And with that in mind, there are few items as relevant to everyday life as bread and bread products. We launched our very first breadmaker, the Home Bakery Breadmaker, in 1988 (over 30 years ago!) and haven’t looked back since. Today, we offer four different breadmakers, each with a wide range of capabilities that allow them to bake different types of breads and some even make jam, pizza dough, meatloaf, and bake gluten-free bread. With all these different features, we thought that it would be a good idea to introduce you to each breadmaker to help you choose the right machine for you. Are you ready to meet the breadmaker members of our family?

Zojirushi Breadmaker Models

Our four breadmakers are as follows (pictured left to right):

The “Supreme” and “Virtuoso” are the bigger capacity breadmakers, while the “Mini” and “Maestro” are the smaller breadmakers. An easy way to distinguish between the breadmakers sizes is by looking at the numbers at the end of each product ID. If it ends in a “10,” it’s smaller. If it ends in a “20,” it’s larger.

We make a breadmaker that fits every household, each packed with settings for different types of breads to fit your own preferences and dietary needs. There are two different sizes of bremakers that make two types of bread shapes: vertical and horizontal.

Models Home Bakery Maestro® Breadmaker BB-SSC10 and Home Bakery Mini Breadmaker BB-HAC10 bake a 1-lb. mini loaf in a vertical shape. This small loaf is large enough to make about 5 sandwiches. If you like baking your own pizza at home, the dough made in the 1-lb. breadmakers is enough to make an 11” pizza.

Models Home Bakery Virtuoso® Plus Breadmaker BB-PDC20 and Home Bakery Supreme® Breadmaker BB-CEC20 bake a 1.5-2lb. loaf in a traditional horizontal shape. When the loaf can yield up to 16 slices of bread and if you’re interested in pizza dough you can make enough for two 12” pizzas.

  1. Your website is clear, concise and easy to understand. It felt as if you were speaking to me and I appreciate the thoughtfulness in your approach to connect with potential customers.

  2. I purchased a Brand New BB-CEC20 bread-maker from your official Amazon store. Seeing as you have been producing that model for almost 20 years now, I wanted to check the manufacture date of my product to ensure I would not be receiving very old stock for the longevity of the components and electronics. I cannot find a manufacture date anywhere on this product. Where can I check my manufacture date? I don’t like the idea of purchasing a product that may have been made over a decade ago and has been sitting around.

  3. We were gifted a home bakery, Model BBCC-S15. The battery is worn out.,
    1. Can the machine still used to make basic loaf of bread – it seems to cycle when plugged in?
    2. If it has to be returned to the company for a new battery etc. What is the cost of this service?

    • Hi Tom, the BBCC-S15 was a really great machine! It has been discontinued for over 20 years now so replacement parts are a bit rare. If the machine is turning on when you plug it in, I would advise just using it as it is. Our service center in Torrance, CA is the only one that could perform the service for this model if you are still interested in having it inspected. If you live near the area, then it would be a good option to bring it by. Please note that we would discourage shipping it since you risk the machine getting damaged in transit and parts for this particular model are very limited.

  4. I had your bread maker in 1990. It got loss in my moves and I never had one again until I recently bought the smaller one now. It is the Masteo. I got my old recipes out and decided to make bread last night. It did not turn out good. What difference would this new one be from my old wonderful one. I used it several times a week with no problem.

  5. Please, what is the difference between these two:

    Thank you very much.

    Which is the best way to buy it…I live in Slovenia, Europe

    • Hi Marta, these are the same model breadmaker. One model number includes the color code (BA) and the other doesn’t. Zojirushi America products are manufactured for use in the US and Canada only. We don’t recommend using them abroad since they will experience a malfuction due to the voltage difference and we will not be able to provide any support. I hope this helps!
