The compact size of the Zojirushi BB-HAC10 is one of its biggest selling points. With measurements of just 8” x 11” x 12”, this mini bread maker has a small enough footprint to fit into the smallest of kitchens.
The Zojirushi BB-HAC10 is jammed packed with features despite its compact size. In addition to making 1-pound loaves, you can make dough for cookies, rolls and pasta plus even make cakes and fruit jams.
Despite programmable been mentioned in the product title, this machine only offers the programmable functionality for setting the delay start timer, so those wanting to modify cycle times should consider another bread machine such as the Zojirushi BB-PAC20.
The preset menu options include the following;

- Pasta/cookie dough

The quick bake option makes bread in less than two hours, which is ideal for those on a tight schedule. The Zojirushi BB-HAC10 allows you to choose from three different bread textures – soft, regular or firm. The crust control setting lets you choose between light or regular crust. This feature is particularly useful if you’re making bread which contains eggs in the recipe as it browns quicker so the light crust setting is preferable.
Using the 13 hour advance timer, you can wake up in the morning to the wonderful aroma of freshly baked bread. However, you shouldn’t use this feature if you are using recipes which require eggs or dairy products.
