We've gotten a new Zo, model S-15A, within about the last month via the people
at Delta Rehab. Our experiences to date in bread-making (maybe 8-10 loaves)
have been largely favorable -- including recipes from the Zo book and others
from Bread Machine Magic. (This isn't our first machine, as we successfully
wore out a DAK "R2D2" on BMM over 4-5 years.) Anyway, while the Zo bread turns
out well, the machine does tend to "thump" fairly continually while kneading.
Does anybody know whether this is a characteristic of the model or should it be
regarded as an abnormality?
Related fact: some friends of ours, now living in Colorado, tell us via phone
that they also had a noisy Zo (acquired via King David, I think, around
Christmas '95), and they've learned from their vendor that their has been a
recall of some (all?) of this model. Theirs has gone back to KD; and, they are
waiting for assembly problems to be resolved before getting a replacement. (We
believe their Zo is/was the same model as ours -- the S-15A.) We've not tried
contacting the USA Zo people -- but my wife and I are curious. Has anybody
heard about a recall?
Unrelated fact: I was mildly surprised to find that this relatively expensive
machine (as far as breadmakers go) was built in China!!
