“Nowt added!”

I love fresh bread and had been finding it increasingly difficult to find a decent bakery. The bread produced by supermarkets that masquerades itself as fresh bread just doesn’t hit the spot for me. I also like to know what’s in my food and how it was made. I have tried many times to make bread...

The Panasonic SD-253 automatic breadmaker has been gracing the (relatively small) work surface in my kitchen for a little over 12 months now, and I think it speaks volumes that it hasn’t just been quietly put into a cupboard to gather dust like so many other kitchen “essentials”...

Look up information on bread-machines, and the advice is more often than not; "Don't buy one. You'll use it once and never again." While for some people, I do suspect there is a large element of truth in that, it couldn't have been more wrong for my experience with my breadmaker. After a few...

You know what's in it, great for dinner parties

Quite a big machine, bread tastes sweeter

OK, I'm a man, and I'm no cook but you dont need to be with this machine. I'll tell you why I bought it, what I like about it, and you might be able to work out then whether you should get one too. I wont be telling you how to use it, but there's a handy instruction booklet that comes with it...

“Everyone kneads one!”

published 01/01/2014

The bread it makes is lovely.

You'll get through tons of flour.

Bread machines aren't for everyone. If they were then Warbutons would be extinct. Sure with a machine it's far easier making your own bread than it ever used to be (fancy a couple of hours of kneading, anyone?) but it'll never be easier and definitely not cheaper than just buying a loaf from the...

I purchased this bread maker a couple of years ago now, and it has been an excellent buy. It is really easy to use and I have had no problems so far... This bread maker fits nicely under my work top, but I have a very big kitchen after all. Therefore, it is one of those devices in which you need...

I bought this bread machine for my mother a few years ago, but now find that I use it more than she does. I absolutely love making my own bread, you know pretty much what's going into it (depending on the ingredients you use of course, though I tend to try and use products which are...

Panasonic SD253 is reliable and well made. I got mine having received recomendations from two colleagues, both of whom were using it to bake bread for family members with various allergies. ***Worried about allergies and health?*** You can have total control over what you put in your bread, so...

slightly noisy

A year ago I would never have expected to be the proud owner of a breadmaker let alone be writing a review of one. Rather than being a master-baker, I am more of a mad chemist who likes to eat his experiments, so I was pleasantly surprised to receive this machine for Christmas, to aid my research...

“Bread of Heaven”

published 02/04/2004

Fantastic bread, buns and cake, easy clean

Small hole in base of bread

Having noticed how many e numbers, salt and other baddies there are in shop bread, I decided to buy a breadmaker. I did a lot of reading up on the Internet and arrived at the conclusion that this particular Panasonic model seemed to wow everyone who bought one. So I took the plunge and have not...

Quite tall - would be difficult in small kitchens

I am absolutely 100% in love with my SD253. I was a little sceptical as to whether I would continue to use it if I am totally honest, however I got a bit of money for my birthday so I decided to take the plunge and get a breadmaker. Like most people, I looked around at the different makes and...

I have longed for a bread maker for many years and had spent much time eyeing the ones in the supermarkets that were between £30 and £50, but had always resisted. Just after Christmas I came into a few quid, not a lot but enough to consider a top of the range model. So I spent much time reading...

I am generally the kind of person who prefers thinking to doing, and so most of my pleasures of domesticity are just dreams. I could be tidy and live in a clean and pleasant house; I could bake all my own cakes and biscuits; I could do some gardening; I could remember where I last saw the iron...

I've recently reviewed the Kenwood BM which I also own along with the Panasonic SD 253. The Panasonic was going for a price I couldn't ignore, private sale and not from the shops. The Panasonic is a mighty machine! It stands much higher than the Kenwood. The features that appeal to me are the...

First off, I am going to tell you I do not own this machine. My father in law purchased one of these for my mother in law for Christmas, where we spent the holidays. I have since benefited several times from this machine as we spend time over at their home. I have to say, I want this machine. It...
