Lowest price this has been in a long time, not to mention it hasn't really been in stock very often.

Had an alert setup for this forever, so if you also have an alert, here ya go!

This is a fantastic breadmaker. It makes loaves of bread rather than cubes of bread with overly thick crusts. The loaf shape and heater in the lid are the game changers. I have a Cusinart convection that is now relegated to dough prep.

We also use it to make fresh jams from frozen berries or fruit that is about to turn.

A decent price, though bought mine from a SD in Oct, 2019 @ $219.95 w/ no tax from FocusCamera.com of all places.

They have lots of recipes on the site though almost any found online can be converted and the recipe book that comes with it is almost Marth Stewart quality.
I purchased the Zojirushi Maestro just as covid-mania set in and I couldn't be happier -- baking bread at home helped keep me sane. For our family of 1.5 bread-eaters, the 1lb loaf seems about right when just keeping the bread in the breadbox.

Here's my recipe for my "ultra loaf" which produces basically the largest loaf the 1lb machine can make:

230g water
320g bread flour
10-14g butter
5g powdered milk
6g salt
8g sugar
3.5g yeast

Bake on program "2".

BTW, $255.98 is a good price right now, especially considering they were OOS on Amazon for much of 2020.

PS: if doing ingredients by weight feels weird, Zojirushi has a mail in offer for a free (inexpensive) scale -- works great.
Not everyone knows what saving money is.
If you thing Costco's bread is good enough, you can't save money from making bread by yourself considering the time and tool you invest.
On the other hand, if you want to get a very fresh bread, then this one saves you a lot. In fact, I think bread, just like coffee, is only good in the first 30min after cooking finishes.

Sadly, I am not sure it'll ever see those prices again :-(

Yeah, no time machine. I had an alert back in the day. Just checked the receipt. Was $339 with a $120 discount.

Ship and sold from Amazon so you could stack with point offers you have on your card (eg I have an Amex offer of 40% off max $40 discount).

Cheap chinese copy.
Well, it's sold by amazon, so, about as good for reliability as you're going to get from amazon's own website. Unless you know something I'm not seeing?

I purchased the Zojirushi Home Bakery Maestro Breadmaker, Premium White instead. Normally $329.99, 22% off for a total of 255.98 shipped. Mostly cause I prefer 1 lb fresh loaves in my small household, and the virtuoso is designed for the larger 2 lb loaves.

I purchased this model in December 2019 and have probably made 40 loaves of bread and dough for countless bagels, rolls and pizzas. Especially in combination with a digital scale, I can go from zero to fresh loaf of bread with 8 minutes of effort and only the bread pan to wash.
