Oh, there is the economies of scale. Wonderbread is cheap and worth every penny. I have fresh bread when I want it, and even though the Zoji was pricey it'll pay for itself in a year or two.

We get a double whammy on efficiency by using a rice cooker with a steamer tray on top - which usually works out pretty well since the only veggies we usually steam we prefer to serve with rice anyway. But the microwave is still a good second option there if done properly.
Perverted rice is abysmal. It's a sin what people sometimes do to food.

Never thought of combining functions for a steamer. Could work.

What model did you bought from Zojirushi? I want to buy one, Like you said, its going to pay for itself and bread is coming so expensive!

Is that the Home Bakery Supreme? Breadmaker BBCC-X20?

And how much did you paid for yours, the Zojirushi isnt got any price...
