Hi all,

My friend just bought one of these at Sam's and her bread turned out
wonderful.  She made the 2# version of the white bread and it screamed up
into the glass.  I told her that many so called 2# machines really can't
handle a 2# rise (which I read right here on this list :) ).

I have used the R2D2 unit and always had good bread come out.  I did notice
when I switched to the Zoji that I had to change many of the recipes as the
liquidity of the two machines is radically different.  DAK's Dill onion
bread worked great in the R2 unit, but didn't rise in the Zoji until I
modified the liquidity ratio.

I sent the conversion tables to the list last year ... Are they in the
archive Reggie?  or should I send them again?  I also sent a hand to machine
conversion at some point in time.

Have a great day,
