This review is from: PANASONIC Breadmaker kneading paddle For: SD200, SD206, SD251, SD252, SD253, SD254, SD255 (DIY & Tools)
Panasonic bread machines are the bee's knees but as they are so good they get heavily used - ours is used every day. Eventually the non-stick coating wears off the paddle and the pan. Once they pan and paddle get damaged bread starts to stick. A new machine is £120, a new pan and paddle is £60 and a paddle alone is £12. Some people suggested that it's the paddle that is more important the pan so I bought just the paddle and now my bread is popping out quite easily again even though the pan is a bit damaged and worn.
If your bread machine is still working fine but the bread is sticking in the pan a little too often, then check your paddle it may be all you need is to replace it!
