This machine also gives the bread maker an ability to store custom programs. This will help with having to set the timer. The timer can be advanced in 10-minute intervals or 1- minute intervals. It has a viewing window, so that you can keep your eye on the bread while it is still baking. There is no safety switch and the machine will continue to operate if the lid is open. From the angle of the open lid, the cook can watch the dough while it is kneading.
There is also a preheating cycle for the Zojirushi BBCC-V20. If the ingredients that are used are already warm, then the preheating cycle will most likely not need to be used. The preheat function can be turned off before the preprogrammed cycles are in play. By holding the cycle and time buttons, you can power the preheat cycle off. After the bread is finished cooking, it is very easy to remove thanks to the non-stick pan that comes with it.
It does, however, have the cycles needed to make any kind of dough or bread you want. The machine includes choices such as dough, quick dough, basic, quick basic, basic wheat, quick wheat, cake, sandwich, jam and homemade. As well, the Zojirushi Bread Machine can cut baking times in half. There are also choices for crust color and they include, dark, medium and light. Please note that the “quick dough” cycle gives you dough that is ready to shape and bake in just under one hour. This cuts the time in half in a regular dough cycle on another machine. It also works fast and efficiently making your favorite jellies or jams.

Finally, the V-20 control panel is on the side at an angle that makes it fairly simple to read, with large buttons and a large LCD screen. The Zojirushi BBCC-V20 is one of the few bread machines on the market with dual kneading blades. These blades are very important because they ensure that the dough or bread is properly kneaded which helps ensure that pan corners are clean, with even distribution of the dough for the finished loaf. The bread machine has a dome lid, which also allows the bread to rise without sticking to the top. It comes with a manual that includes recipes and a website that is updated with new recipes and information about the features.
