Excerpt: After reading every review I could lay my eyes on for every bread machine available I decided to go for this one. I was a little worried that it would be a five minute wonder, a bit like a sandwich toaster, seems like a good idea at the time but when the times come to clean it, not only is it difficult its also a bit of a pain. This bread maker is absolutely brilliant! It makes bread, thats what it does, the best tasting bread I have had in many years.
Excerpt: I have no baking experience, so was impressed when my first loaf came out absolutely delicious (organic with many different seeds added). I try to eat most things organic, but my local Tesco superstore has stopped selling organic bread (presumably because demand has dropped). Im really looking forward to baking all sorts of different bread e.g. pesto and pine nut, and fruit loaf - as well as pizza bases and cakes.
Excerpt: I bought the Panasonic SD255 breadmaker on the strength of the Amazon reviews, together with recommendation from friends and its definitely been one of my best kitchen buys, I just love it. In previous years I have read that people buy breadmakers in response to hype and they are quickly banished to the back of the cupboard. Not this one though, I cant see me ever buying bread from the shop/supermarket again.
Excerpt: Panasonic SD255 Breadmaker with Raisin/Nut Dispenser I got this to replace my old Morphy Richards breadmaker which only made hardcore for the driveway.It is such a difference in that it makes what it claims in the handbook- gone are the solid lumps from the old MR unit to be replaced with soft fresh bread- try using Wrights `Ciabatta` breadmix from Tesco. 2 hours later you have the best bread i have ever tasted.
Excerpt: We were told by a relative that the Panasonic SD 255 (with nut dispenser) was the best on the market. We have been delighted with it and havent bought a loaf of bread since we bought it in December. Its fun experimenting with and adapting the many recipes. You can load it before going to bed and when you make your early morning tea you can take out your loaf just as the baking cycle is compled. Hot buttered toast made 30 mins before takes some beating!
Excerpt: This is a perfect present for a man. It is easy for them to be successful every time and they have the satisfaction of receiving genuine praise for providing a delicious product for their family to eat. All hunter-gatherers should have one. This machine is easy to use and most importantly clean up afterwards, my husband does it all, even replenishment of supplies! Thank you Panasonic for creating it and Amazon, which had the best price and delivered to the door.
Excerpt: I bought this at the beginning of December 2008 and have used it almost daily since then. It consistently turns out excellent bread and I have tried most recipes in the book provided by Panasonic. A viewing window would be nice but is not essential. 100% wholemeal is a bit heavy but 70% is excellent. The reviewer who said the paddle was loose hasnt read the instructions! The paddle is meant to be loose. This is my third breadmaker and the best yet.
