Running a close second to the smell of frying bacon is the aroma of freshly baked bread. It permeates the kitchen and then escapes to greet anybody within olfactory distance with a tantalizing scent that simply cannot be ignored. And again, like with bacon, when the siren scent is answered, eaters are sure to not be disappointed.

Achieving this deliciousness in the home kitchen is easier than ever thanks to bread machines such as the Zojirushi BB-PAC20 Home Bakery Virtuoso Breadmaker. Baking a large, 2-pound, traditionally shaped rectangular loaf, the countertop appliance ups the ante by adding an additional heating element in the lid. Not only does it supply freshly baked bread, but it does so with a nicely browned crust.

The full-coverage cooking extends to inside of the loaf as the machine incorporates dual kneading blades that provide thorough mixing for even baking. Desired results are easy to control as a host of menu selections allow for maximum versatility. These include: basic bread, wheat bread, gluten-free bread, sourdough starter, dough, jam, cake, and quick bread. Custom settings are also possible, giving users the ability to take control over what emanates out of the kitchen--and that is a scent that is as sweet as any.
