tynes1der's review of Panasonic SD-257

“We bought this latest incarnation of the Panasonic...”

★★★★★

written by tynes1der on 18/01/2011

We bought this latest incarnation of the Panasonic bread maker SD-257 with ingredient tray and timer after sampling bread from the previous model whilst staying with a friend.

Although we have only made white, wholemeal and 50% wholemeal in it, the process is so easy you don't even need to get the excellent instruction manual out each time. For white we found Lidl and Sainsbury bread flour excellent and Sainsbury wholemeal is good too.

People say that oil or spread can be used instead of butter, but we find that oil makes a heavy loaf, and spreads have enough water in to make a soggy loaf just as if you added too much water in the first place., so we stick to unsalted butter.

We find all the quick bread yeasts are OK as long as you stick to the use-by dates.

Loaves keep for at least 4 days after starting them in a bread box as long as it is not tightly sealed.

The machine can be set to produce a loaf with several hours delay - set it a night for fresh bread as you get up. This works quite well although the texture is slightly tougher to us than making it the evening before and cooling it overnight. However, taking a fresh warm loaf of white out in the morning and toasting it immediately is sublime.

We just have not bought a single soggy shop loaf since we got the machine even though our son refused to even try it and went out to buy his own additive laden sliced white. We will have to desperate to do that !!
