Zojirushi breakmaker question

For the life of me I can't find any reference to the maximum cups of flour this machine can handle. I could swear I read it in the manual but now can't seem to find this specific info. My guess is the max is about 4 1/2 cups of flour. Let me say though that I use the breadmaker for mixing and kneading only. I have the larger model that bakes a 2 lb loaf. Could I use a recipe using 6 cups of flour or would I be overtaxing the machine? Thanks for any input!

  1. Which model do you have?

    The Zojirushi BBCC-Q15 will handle a 1 1/2 pound loaf which is much less than 4 1/2 cups of flour.
    The BBCC-X20 specs. say it will handle a 2 pound loaf which should therefore allow for 4 1/2 cups of flour.

    1. I have a zojirushi that does up to a 2lb loaf and 4 1/2 c. of flour is the most I would use in it. Even with that, I get flour everywhere and clean up is hard. I also only use the machine for mixing and kneading so have no idea how it would work w/ baking.

        I have the BBCC-V20 which can make a 2 lb loaf. I looked at some of the recipes in the manual and saw a recipe calling for 5 cups of whole wheat flour. I want to try a recipe for Frisian Sugar Loaf which calls for 6 cups of AP flour. The worse that could happen is I end up mixing and kneading by hand if it's too much for the breadmaker. Thanks for your input!
