My new toy: Zojirushi BBCC-X20 Bread Machine

I’ve been wanting a new bread machine for a long while, and I’ve been wanting THIS bread machine for at least 2-3 years!  I’ve been cheap and trying to wait for it to go on sale, but it’s never been on sale.  😦

Today, while shopping at Target, Steven spotted this on the clearance rack in the kitchen section!! They were selling this open item for $139.99 (originally $199.99).  We went to customer service to MAKE SURE that this item is returnable in the case that it doesn’t work (the clearance sticker stated “As Is”), and it’s returnable!!

So…this is a new member to my kitchen family.  I can’t wait to introduce it to other members of the family…flour…eggs…water…yeast…I think they’ll have sooo much fun together!!

Although I’m super-excited about this machine, I can’t help but wonder why Zojirushi can’t change the exterior packaging a bit.  Just by looking at the box, this product looks like it’s from the 1990’s.  Don’t you think?
