The Best!


It just works! compared to my other breadmeker it makes a consistent quality loaf. The lightness and texture are excellent.It works with all the recipes and does exactly as it says on the box. The recipes in the book are accurate and provide an...

You may baulk at the price, but look around. I paid £79.99 and you may get one even cheaperThe full programmes are long 5 hours for a big wholewheat loaf. The quick programmes work fine, less than 2 hours for some.The auto dispenser is great simple to...

Worth the extra. Don't buy one if your on a diet

Fantastic product. Delivers everything it promises to. Easy to use. A sheer luxery I wont want to be without now. I no it seems expensive, but you really do gewt what you pay for with this! The accompanying bread book is also excellent. Cannot fault it.

Used a different bread making book, other than the one supplied, and had my first failure. Will need to adapt that particular book to suit my machine. Nothing to complain about so far. Only weekness I can see would be human error, or a power cut.

Took expert advice before I bought this machine. Spoke to a close friend who owns Kirton Lindsey Windmill, she had asked her regular organic flour clients which machines they had. The only machine that seemed to come up trumps every time seemed to be...

Panasonic is great


Perfect results, light bread well textured.3 sizes.Quiet.Good recipe book.

It takes longer to cook, up to 5 hours but the over night timer works well and the results are woorth it. It is expensive good value from internet order.

I replaced a 1 year old Russell Hobbs and there is no comparison the panasonic is worth the extra money. The bread is perfect every time and there have been no disappointments yet.

Makes bread interesting again


Ease of use, choice of options, great bread without fail.

Loaves are half the size of shop bought, however for a full size loaf the machine would be too big. The loaf is however very tall.

I'd been considering a bread maker for a while and decided to get one once the prices were < £100. I saw a review of this one and took the plunge. It was one of the most expensive, but I wanted one that worked !It is an excellent machine, extremely...

After viewing the strange ingredients listed on the side of shop bought bread, I decided it was time to make my own.My main worry when purchasing this item was that the novelty would wear off and that it would be confined to the cupboard after 3 weeks....

None - just remember to put the 'rudder' back in after cleaning and before starting to bake !!!

An excellent machine .

excellent breadmaker


easy to use -- light ,tasty bread - kneads quietly -- does what what you expect it to do.


I have only had this product for 2 days but in that time I have made 2 white loaves & the marmalade cake. The bread is absolutely delicious -- light, tasty and, while it`s still warm, the crust melts in the mouth. The marmalade cake is very nice sliced...

SD 253


Consistantly excellent results with all types of loaf, easy to use & clean, reliable (so far), easy to follow recipes that work, good customer support dept will help with specialist recipes etc.

Doesn't make cakes or jam, as some makes do, but then it's supposed to be a breadmaker.

Not cheap but highly recommended
