Advantages: Finally able to wake up to freshly cooked tasty bread!
Disadvantages: It may break the bank for many people
I had previously bought a breadmaker when they first started to get fashionable but it was not a regular brand and soon ran out of steam.
I had been looking for a replacement and the Panasonic SD-255 seemed to have a lot of the necessities I wanted in the breadmaker such as the rapid bake mode (2 hours) and a 13 hour time delay to enable you to wake up to a fresh loaf of bread.
It is modern in looks with a white with a cool to touch exterior. It has an angled control panel which is easy to operate. This breadmaker makes 3 different sized loafs - medium, large and extra large. It has many different baking settings including 100% wholemeal, multigrain, gluten free, sandwich bread, dough setting for pizzas and rolls.
What I really love about this breadmaker is that it will add all the extra ingredients you need by itself - such as adding nuts or raisins etc. I also love the fact that you can make pretty much any kind of bread.
I generally use it to make bread that I may not be able to purchase easily in the supermarkets. This is such as Rye bread and yeast free bread.
I really love the timing aspect of this breadmaker, where you can state the time you would like to wake up to the fresh bread. I have also found that the inside is non stick and it has been easy to get out the bread once it is ready - unlike my previous breadmaker.
This breadmaker really is attractive with it's digital display and viewing window. It really would not look out of place on display in any kitchen. However, I generally prefer the less is more appearance. I have been using ours regularly each week for my immediate family, plus friends for over two years now.
The breadmaker really does do what it is supposed to but may cost too much for everyone's budget.
Summary: An attractive breadmaker that does what it is supposed to do
