Panasonic SD-255 Bread machine. Brilliant bread every time. Had my machine almost two years and it's in use almost every day. I usually bake the medium size loaf, and then there is no waste because any left fits comfortably into the toaster. A friend who initially recommended the Panasonic to me has had hers in excess of 6 years and it is still used daily and working reliably. Other friends have purchased other makes say that they don't always have success. The only minor critisisms I have found is the buzzer is hardly audible and drastically needs the manufacturers improvement, also the non-stick bread pan is becoming very marked, which I assume is being caused by grains. As the white plastic does not look particulary impressive on the work top, I wish Panasonic had given the option of a stainless steel model, but I suppose the priority is the end product ... Brilliant!
