The Zojirushi is pronounced Zo (long "o") ji (short "i")ru (roo long "o") sh
(soft sh sound) i (ee long e sound) but the easy way out is to just say Zo
with a long "o" sound. From what I've been told it is one of the best
breadmakers on the market. I've looking at the King Arthur Flour catalog
longingly for sometime, but can't justify owning one since I now have my
Kitchen Aid mixer. Hope this helps.
