    5.0 out of 5 stars This is magic! 18 Jun 2007
    I'm really pleased with this machine, it's easy to use and makes perfect bread every time.

    So far I've made an ordinary white loaf (the XL size is massive!)a spiced raisin loaf- great for breakfast, and a brioche with chocolate chips.

    What's really useful is the timer delay so you wake up to great fresh bread. You know all the things that have gone into it, and its really tasty.

    The machine is easy to use,but you MUST follow the instructions carefully, and the automatic dispenser for fruit, nuts etc is a boon as you don't have to stand over it waiting for the beep to add these like other machines.

    There is a dough only option which allows you to take out the dough and shape it yourself.It also does cake but I haven't tried this yet.

    It is like magic, add the ingredients at night, set the timer, and wake up to the house smelling of lovely fresh bread- amazing!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent household appliance 31 May 2008
    I like wholemeal bread with a good texture, colour, small and taste, but over the last 20 years each supermarket in turn seems to have replaced its excellent wholemeal with an ersatz variety of a strange sponge-like texture, a suspiciously uniform dyed-looking colouring, and hardly any aroma or crust. I read various internet reviews that all agreed the Panasonic was the only breadmaker to get if you wanted top-grade wholemeal, although many makes could manage a decent white loaf. So I took the plunge and forked out 85.

    Well, folks, it's all true. The Panasonic does indeed produce a better wholemeal loaf than any supermarket, and at half the cost. I haven't bought a loaf since the machine arrived 6 months ago, and I make an XL (850gm) loaf every two days. I reckon the machine will have paid for itself in a year. It takes just a few minutes to load the machine and set the timer before you go to bed. In the morning you tip it out to cool while you make the tea. Easy!

    I've tried out lots of the recipes that come with it, and have several favourites: spicy fruit loaf, French rustic white, olive bread, rye and wholemeal 50/50...........The instruction booklet is excellent, and Panasonic is obviously a company that has a seriously-funded R&D section to develop and improve its products - a friend who has the preceding model to mine noticed several worthwhile improvements. One thing I have found though, is that flours vary a lot. (The book warns you.) Keep trying different ones till you find one that rises consistently well and tastes good.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Superb .. simply superb 13 Nov 2007
    I've had a non branded breadmaker for around 15 years .. I was reasonably happy with it, but only to use shop bought bread mixes in it .. because however carefully I measured my ingredients .. I often found the bread 'made from scratch' was heavy, or too sweet or just didn't rise too well .. and with time the baking tin had become rather scratched due to so much use .. soooooo ...

    I decided to invest in a new bread maker .. this time I decided to spend what to me is a small fortune (disabled on a very low income) and get the Panasonic SD255 breadmaker with raisin/nut dispenser .. because it easily gets the best reviews .. it's the most ranted about bread maker and gets the thumbs up from many professional chefs or catering folk ..

    Yesterday it arrived and I was quickly making my first 'shop bought bread mix' bread in it .. (simply because I didn't have any yeast in the house) .. the instructions are clear, easy to read and the display on the machine is positioned so it is easy to read .. and just 2 hours later (basic bread on rapid cook) I had my first 'Panasonic' loaf .. I simply couldn't believe the difference from my old non branded machine .. the bread was lighter .. more evenly baked .. and somehow .. even tasted better .. and that was just a shop bought bread mix ..

    This morning I baked my first 'true' loaf .. from scratch following the Panasonic recipe exactly .. BRILLIANT .. a perfect loaf .. proper bread texture .. good crust .. wonderful flavour and easily sliced .. better than 'shop bought premium breads' .. and this was only my first effort .. after 14 years of using my old bread maker I simply cannot praise the Panasonic SD255 breadmaker with raisin/nut dispenser enough .. I am thoroughly satisfied with everything .. the comprehensive recipe guide ..

    5.0 out of 5 stars Great product even for the bread snob! 27 Sep 2007
    I admit to being a bit of a bread snob with a preference for wood fired oven sourdough, so I really only bought it for my partner. As it is it makes lovely bread - I really like the spelt fruit bread & it makes a nice solid rye loaf too! I haven't missed my premium bread so far. And Saturdays we have raisin brioche for breakfast, can life get any better?

    I believe the machine has saved us its purchase price in bread in the couple of months we've had it already, despite my pessimistic initial calculation that it would take us up to 1 year.

    I wouldn't bother getting a separate bread recipe book as the included book gives you enough options.

    5.0 out of 5 stars 16 years of use! 28 July 2008
    I've been using a Panasonic bread maker daily for 16 years. My first one cost 220 back then. It's a fantastic machine. My three top tips are:
    Don't use more than 25% wholemeal flour unless you like a rather heavy loaf.
    For a really tasty change, add 2 tablespoons each of sunflower and pumpkin seeds and use the Raisin bake programme.
    Try it with a sourdough starter. It works on the French loaf programme but is even better on the French Dough programme. When it has finished, just let it carry on rising and then use the bake only programme for 50mins.
