Summary: I already had a 2 lb. bread maker, but I was interested in the Panasonic because of the auto yeast dispenser. I made the wheat bread with molasses and it was perfect. I'm anxious to try all the recipes.
Pros: Easy to use, Exceeded expectations, Convenient
Summary: I just bought this bread machine and used twice to make white bread and pizza dough. It's very easy to use and the price was fantastic. My son had his friends over and they put their own pizza toppings and enjoyed it.
Summary: Pros: It's much quieter than my previous breadmaker. I am very pleased with the texture and even consistency throughout the loaves, especially after I tried bread flour instead of regular flour. I also appreciate how easily the loaf slides out of the pan when finished. Cons: Sometimes flour stays in the corners of the pan when mixing, but I have good results if I manually scrape the corners with a rubber spatula while it's resting during the initial mixing.
Pros: Easy to use, Exceeded expectations, Convenient, delicious results
Summary: Thought it was time to write a review. I purchased this machine in 1998?? I used it to bake loaves of bread for church parties, and made countless loaves of bread. Went to use the machine this morning, and I realized it works the same today, as it did when I bought it about 15 years ago. I researched on the internet when I first started using the internet. It just quietly does a great job every time.
Pros: Easy to use, Exceeded expectations, Convenient, came with a great recipe book, easy instructions
Cons: please print an instruction book with large print, none
Summary: I've never used a breadmaker before but this was very very easy to get the hang of. My first attempt WAS a bad one but it was just me misunderstanding the directions. Luckily, my second loaf was extremely tasty! The instructions were easy to use, the measuring cups (INCLUDED!) are of high quality, and the thing just WORKS! Now I'm making fresh bread every week and my family is loving it!
Pros: Inexpensive, Compact, Easy to use, Durable, Exceeded expectations, Convenient
Summary: I never knew that owning the Bread Machine can be such an exciting experience. With my new bread machine I started using yeast in my kitchen again and this machine is doing all the kneading, rising, more kneading and more rising. My previous laborious and hand kneading bread baking experiments were a failure until I started using this machine.
Great machine, love the fresh bread in the morning
6 June 2013
Summary: I really have enjoyed using this breadmaker. The timer feature is wonderful, fresh bread in the morning with minimal effort. I was disappointed that the breadmaker does not have a setting for 100% whole wheat bread. The other feature I would have really liked was a setting to add additional extras (nuts, fruit) beyond what can be held in the dispenser tray; perhaps a alarm that goes off when the timer is dispensing so I could open the machine and add more.
