This breadmaker from our very first use turned out to be a top performer, producing even consistency bread time after time. Previous problems with other breadmakers (like over rising or sticking to the tin) just haven't occurred; you set it up, set the timer and in the morning you know you will get lovely bread. Recipes work well too, if you like your bread a little less sweet then you can take quite a bit of the sugar out of the white/wholemeal recipe with no ill effect (for all you Europeans out there). Without reservation, well worth the investment and we look forward to long and frequent use!

I purchased this machine as a replacement for a Philips bread machine I've had for a couple of years. It's the third bread machine I've purchased for myself, and had bought its predecessor (the SD-250) for my Parents some time ago. My Philips packed up (the bread tin broke away from its base), and they don't make spares, so I have to throw the whole machine in the bin - definitely won't buy another Philips anything. My parents have been most impressed with the Panasonic, and it's been personally recommended to me by other people, so after reading all the reviews on I decided to buy one. So, to the point, I'm thoroughly impressed with this machine. It is solid and quiet. I took the first loaf I made with it and sliced it to find an absolutely even loaf (even from the 1:55 rapid mode). All the other machines I've had have had some level of streaking or unevenness in the bread. As for all the other criticism of the recipe book for its use of weight rather than volume measurements for flour, it is a far more accurate way of measuring flour for any baking. Also the manual has since been updated (no doubt as a result of these criticisms), and now shows the approximate volume equivalents in all the recipes.

You get what you pay for in this world and the Panasonic SD-YD250 is a perfect example. Quiet as a mouse. No jumping around the counter and whining and improperly mixing as a Breadman we purchased (and returned) did. Had another Panasonic for 8 years. Decided to replace it when the pan seal failed and we checked out the cost of a replacemtnt pan (not realizing we could replace just the paddle mechanism/seal.) Thought we could get by on the cheap with the Breadman. Wrong. If you are looking for a rock solid, flexible unit that turns out a perfect loaf time after time (up to 2.5 lbs), this is your bread machine. The automatic yeast dispenser is a great feature, particulary if you use the timer. Spend the [money].

Since Christmas, the Panasonic SD-YD250 has been baking excellent loaves. Being new to this, I went to the WEB for a very basic bread recipe. If you want excellent bread here's how from a novice bread machine owner: in this order; 1 1/4 cup tap water, 1 1/2 tsp salt, 2 TSP sugar, 1/4 cup canola oil (any vegetable oil) 2 cups loosely measured all purpose flour, 1 cup loosely measured whole wheat flour, and in the yeast dispenser, 2 tsp active dry yeast. Set up for Basic, Light crust, XL size. Absolutely nothing fancy in the recipe and the bread comes out full, golden crust, excellent texture and the taste is something I got use to immediately - full flavored fresh bread. The best basic bread I ever had. It even comes out perfect with the timer function. Mechanically this unit is solid and it stays in one place. I now keep up to 4 loaves in the freezer and the bread still tastes great. French Toasts are superb; sandwiches full of natural flavor, toast are crisp with a light center, perfect for butter or margarine. Warning, you will put on weight and so will everyone in your household. Update 2-18-03 Bought another unit for my Mom. She loves having fresh homemade bread back in her house. I'm saving money making my own bread with simple inexpensive ingredients.

This year for Christmas, my husband gave me a Panasonic SD-YD250 Automatic Bread Maker. My first bread maker was a Toastmaster that spent most of its time at the repair shop. I have made, with my Panasonic, a loaf of buttermilk, cheese, butter horn rolls, and cinnamon buns, each coming out to perfection. My family gobbles these loaves faster then I can bake them! You add the dry ingredients, cheeses, eggs and wet. The liquid ingredient water & milk do not have to be preheated! You place your cold liquids on top of the rest, close the lid, place the yeast in the dispenser and pick your settings. My old bread machine would almost rock off the counter during the kneading process. I have made 4 receipts containing 4 cups of white flour each, and I could not tell the machine was kneading the dough. It is so quite during the kneading cycle. The receipt book that is included uses oz rather than cups. That's OK! Find yourself a good bread machine cookbook. My bread machine Cookbook has a conversation chart for cups to oz's. I have not used the chart, because the receipts using cups come out fantastic! Find a cookbook that suits you! I love this machine!
