“Best One”

Written on: 19/09/2020 by VinitPatel (6 reviews written)

Best-One. managing to achieve a level of rising and fluffiness far in excess of other machines or hand-made bread. It appears that spares are easily available, an important consideration given that my previous machine, a Breville, found it's way into a skip due to the non-availability of replacement buckets and the manufacturer's non-existent customer service. But best of all, the Panasonic is almost silent in operation… Read Full Review

“Yummy yummy Bread, do not buy any other bread now.”

Written on: 04/10/2018 by Seaside46 (1 review written)

Bought this machine about 9 months ago very easy to use. quiet, tried fruit bread also good & Pizza dough. Most People put machine away in a Cubboard, after use, then do not use it often enough. But I keep mine in a corner. On my worktop, and use it every other day. Bread does keep fresh for 2 Days, if not eaten before! Did have one 10 years ago, but nothing like my Panasonic … Read Full Review

“Fantastic Bread Maker Couldn't Do Without”

Written on: 06/08/2015 by KathrynMunn111 (1 review written)

I've owned 3 Panasonic breadmakers now and I can say without doubt that they are the best there is. Lots of my friends have similar offerings from other companies and I can truly say that Panasonic have got it right. This unit currently sits on my kitchen side and happily churns out 2-3 loaves per week. The kids love the cake options and the timing functions are fantastic. At first, the interface is a little tricky to get your head round however once you've sussed it using the machine slots… Read Full Review

“not flexible, no menu on the machine. ”

Written on: 07/12/2012

I bought this machine mainly for mix and raise dough. I was expecting to be able to control the functions like you could do to a washing machine. eg, sometimes i would like the machine just do mixing or mixing a bit longer but i can't do it. i like use the machine to do a quick dough, but i can't. you have to wait for the rest time. On the machine, the only thing you can see is numbers and you need to have the instruction book with you all the time. With out the instruction book you would lost… Read Full Review

“9 years good service”

Written on: 17/03/2012 by Burdieuk (1 review written)

After 9 years making 2 loafs a week we are going to buy new, after a couple of bearing hub replacements because we had worn them out we have decided that perhaps a new pan and bearing would be better spent on a new machine. This is an absolutely fabulous machine, this is our second, we would not be without one. BUT you MUST weigh out the ingredients accurately or it will give you a bad loaf… Read Full Review

“Should have gone for the Kenwood”

Written on: 04/10/2011 by green glass goblin (7 reviews written)

Bought this over 12 months ago to updat my old Russell Hobbs that had seen 5 years hard labour. I nearly bought the Kenwood - much the same price. After only 12 months and not hard work as for 2 of those months my kitchen was being revamped and the machine was not used. Now the paddle is only turning intermittantly and not making the bread poperly. I will be getting a kenwood to replace. this is the 3rd machine I have had. 1st one was the basic Morphy richards 12 years ago. great little… Read Full Review

No problems at all, every loaf a winner. (Unless I forget to put the yeast in then it makes lovely cricket balls. This has only happened once)
The quantities are very important so the recipes must be followed to the letter for success, doing this always results in a good loaf… Read Full Review

Written on: 24/08/2010

My second Panasonic breadmaker. Wore the first out after 7 years and thousands of loaves. This one is almost as good to use and I think its direct drive so very heavy wholemeal doesnt damage the drive belt like in the old one.
Make all kinds of bread (heavy and light), dough, cakes.
Sometimes forget to do something and get a mess but it's always my mistake for not following the instructions or leaving out an ingredient (or the paddle!).
I think the bread recipes need a bit more water about… Read Full Review

“PANASONIC 255 Bread Maker ”

Written on: 22/08/2010 by 3170 (13 reviews written)

PANASONIC 255 Bread Maker
I started bread making with a cheap brand to see if I liked and got on with it. It was great, so I moved up the ladder a bit & got a Morphy Richards item. This didn't last long so I bought the best thing that I couldn't really afford - the Panasonic 255. I was thrilled with this so called high end appliance & started baking.
The first few loaves were o.k, but then I noticed that after 4 hours, the machine hadn't started its program. I switched it off & left it long… Read Full Review

Written on: 27/07/2010

I bought my Parasonic 255 in March of last year 2009, however the nut dispenser has just stopped functioning, a small plastic bar has snapped off (due to excessive heat, I presume). God knows why in wasn't metal in the first place. I won't be buying the Parasonic 255 again, I'll go for another brand which offers the the same functions… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/07/2010 by john raf (1 review written)

I bought one of these in 2006/7. In 2008 it started to make bread that had not risen.

It took months of communications to get a replacement from Panasonic.

It was repaired but was still with fault. I noticed at the time a number of complaints that these machines often went faulty after just over a year.

Mine was 14 months old.

Panasonic would not accept it was faulty so I returned it and it was damaged in the post, 2 months later they replaced it with the latest model, SD 255.

Now in 2010… Read Full Review

Written on: 05/07/2010

Never owned a bread maker before, read the reviews here and decided to invest. Worth every penny. I started with a spicey fruit loaf on the first day and have since made 4 loaves both white and wholemeal. Used the quick bake and the 4 hour cycle and both give really good results. Need to try freezing to see how good the bread is from the freezer but if not it's easy enough to bake most days.

Cakes are next, can't wait… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/06/2010

I was given a Panasonic SD255 breadmaker for my birthday, which was brill. My wife has needs bread that is wheat & dairy free and that kind of bread is either really crumbly or expensive (£3+) or both. I make between 4-5 loaves a week, however this week its been on everyday.

The "normal" breads Wholemeal, brown & white are super easy and take about 2 hrs to do and have all the benefits of timer etc. Very easy and realtively straightforward.

The Rye bread function uses a differnt paddle… Read Full Review

Written on: 12/04/2010

stylish, quiet, like a little baker in my kitchen. I think it is great value for money. So good to know what's in the bread i'm eating and really have the taste that i can perfect.

the timer mode doesn't seem as good as some other models i've seen. i set it overnight - 8 hours, and it just sits there for four hours then starts a normal cycle for the last four (four hour loaf). so had it a few times where the yeast sits in water for several hours and it doesn't rise properly… Read Full Review
