By now you’ve probably heard about the $50,000 Zucchini Bread Machine that was installed in the heart of downtown Montreal on Tuesday.
The machine was set up by Zucchinis, a chain of bakeries and eateries, to create a bread machine that can churn and bake a whole batch of different breads at the same time.
It also allows customers to order breads from multiple Zucchias, which will then be mixed together to create the ultimate, authentic loaf.
But the machine isn’t just about bread.
ZucChi is also a home appliance maker.
Its bread machine is a true home appliance, and you can buy it in the store.
The bread machine’s owner, David Zucini, says the machine is not just about making breads.
“It’s about the people who use it,” he says.
“If you buy it, it’s for yourself.
It’s a tool to use.”
He’s also not shy about talking about his family’s love of bread.
“When I was growing up, my mother used to make bread for us and make it for the whole family,” he said.
“It was the best bread.
It was always moist and rich.
My father would bring it home and make us a meal.
He would make a loaf every night.”
The Zucis say they’re still learning how to use the machine.
“We haven’t really figured out how to get the bread out of the machine,” said David.
“The machine is still in the prototype phase.
We’ll try to make it better.”
It took David four months to get it installed, but he says the first batch of bread has already been enjoyed by thousands of people.
“The customers have been amazing,” said the owner of the Zuci Bread Machine.
“We are overwhelmed with the positive response.
We’ve been waiting for people to take the time to try the machine and see what it’s all about.”
Zucchini says it will eventually add a video camera so customers can see the machine’s results.
“A lot of people want to have the taste of bread, and the bread machine has that as well,” he added.
“If you can’t eat bread, but you want a piece of bread in your mouth, you can eat the bread in the machine.”
The bread machine will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday to Friday, and from 11 a.g. to 6 p.g., on Saturdays and Sundays.
