The best home breadmaker money can buy (so the reviews say!)

Did you think only the baker can make that perfect loaf of bread? Now you can too! With the Panasonic SD-256WXC Breadmaker, baking a loaf of delicious bread has never been simpler!

Thanks to andywedge & amibees for the voucher code.
Be quick as code expires tomorrow apparently.

The Panasonic SD-256WXC Breadmaker automatically mixes, kneads and bakes fresh bread. The machine has a Brioche bake mode, a super-rapid 1h 55 minutes bake mode and a digital delay timer up to 13 hours. Just what you need to have a healthy, fresh loaf of bread when you wake up!

The pizza dough programme can help you make tasty homemade pizza and the gluten-free programme appeals to all tastebuds. The diamond-fluro coated breadpan can make three different loaf sizes. A cool-touch housing keeps the machine safe, even while baking.

The compact Panasonic SD-256WXC Breadmaker is great for a warm loaf of fresh bread anytime you want!

It will take a hell of a long time to pay for itself!

Money to burn if you buy this tbh.

Don't think this is true - I looked at this recently and people were coming up with 30-50p/loaf.

Store bought fresh bread is ~£1.20 here. We use 2-3 loaves / week. So should break even in well under a year.


Doesn't work for cheap bread but then this isn't a fair comparison.

I wanted the HD version ! :(

Too much dough! Yaaaawn!

The top of the range PANASONIC SD-256WXC has been replaced with the PANASONIC SD-257WXC.

It seems the only difference was the coating on the paddles, and you are saving about 33 quid with the older version.

While this did not come out best in the Which? test - it got the most people who used it saying it was the best breadmaker by miles. I looked into getting one - and reviews almost everywhere substantiate this.

Lastly - a breadmaker wont save you a massive amount of money on bread - but you get the smell, and bread without chemicals and preservatives. I got one to save me the 8g of salt in each normal loaf.

No comparison between shop bought bread and bread from a panasonic (I've got the 257). You control what goes into your bread, no rubbish, no preservatives, nothing artificial. Example of that is homemade bread doesn't go mouldy, just goes hard. There's some amazing flours out there from local British millers too
#10
I bought this on recommendation from a friend and i'll be honest, I just don't use it. In fact, I don't know anyone with a breadmaker that uses it much. The main reason is that I actually don't like the taste of the bread it makes. Went back to shop bought very quickly.

They're still running both models. The main difference is that the SD-257 has a raisin/nut dispenser and will make rye bread. Whether that's worth £30 to you depends on what you're looking for, I suppose.

We've been using Panasonic breadmakers for close on 25 years now (the first one cost £199!) and there isn't another on the market to touch them. Excellent bread every time, vastly cheaper than 'proper' bread (ignoring the cheap, nasty stuff), and far more convenient than having to buy it from a bakery. Makes some excellent speciality breads too, with a little bit more effort.
#12
Panny breadmakers are the best by far. Couldn't be happier with mine!
#13
They used to be 254/255 and are now 256/257. As stated, the more expensive one has a raisin dispenser which is useless to most people.

Sell it on fleabay. Panasonic bread makers have a good second hand value. Better still, give it another try with different flour.

I bought the 257 from costco before christmas, I use it all the time, we very rarely buy bread anymore, they are so easy to use - Just chuck the ingredents in before you go to bed (takes about 5 minutes) set the time, wake up to a freshly baked loaf
#16
I use this at least three times a week.
Very good
Shame the breads are tall instead of wide and not very big. As they only last a family of 4 two days.

I have one of these: excellent machine. Next to zero cleaning required. Perfect - and I mean PERFECT - results every time. 100% recommended. Timer feature works fine etc.

Just get one!

Its not just a raisin dispenser, you use it for seeds when making granary bread, infact most dry additions to bread go in there. Made an amazing chilli & chorizo bread last week, the chorizo had to go in there too.
Very handy addition if you're not around to manually add extra ingredients to your bread half way through the cycle.

"they only last a family of 4 two days." - they only last a guy of one two days as well!

Bought the 257 a month ago and have been blown away. This is a great deal for a fantastic breadmaker, as Keefy68 says perfect results every time. Dizzying array of recipes as well, I tucked into honey & sunflower bread today, my 8th recipe so far.

As others have said this will save you money in the long run, but the quality of the bread is worth the price alone when compared to others, it really is that good. One note: I bought the 257 (£95 off amazon at the time) primarily because it has a rye/spelt setting. Worth considering, I love my spelt bread.

Probably around the £99.99 mark - nothing I can see much below that at the moment.

I paid £83 at costco just before Christmas but I don't think they have them in stock at the moment - and of course you get costco's 3 year warranty too :)

You could simply use Google to look up the price, which is what somebody else will have to do in order to get this information.

£69.99 here Panasonic Store

Note that this store is not Panasonic, but an independent dealer with a site trying to look like Panasonic. I'm not saying there's anything wrong with the supplier though. For me, the Curry's deal with 3% Top Cashback is the slightly better deal.

I followed this method for making bread without a breadmaker:

Delicious every time!

I think breadmaker machines are neither here nor there. If you want to make bread by hand, you can do it quite literally by hand, without the use of fancy equipment!

If anyone is condering buying one, try to make it by hand first. If it turns out as nice as mine does, who needs a breadmaker? :)

In fact why do we need a deal website at all, we could all just google each time!

Muzbud - thanks for the Costco info that's a good price and good warranty, I'll check it out.

Fine if you have the time, but most people don't - the reason breadmakers are so popular is that you simply put the ingredients in, and the machine does all the rest.

Ingredients in, switch on, bread out - that easy. :)

If you have ever eaten a Panasonic Bread Maker loaf..especially a granary one .. you will NEVER buy shop stock again ... a bit like if you've had an iPhone or Mac etc ... you never go back to less again ... we have a Panasonic and had a Morphy Richards before that. Easy to clean ... and takes about 5 minutes to prepare once you're used to putting the ingredients together. Its not a cost effective reason you buy these its for the superior, home made taste. Delicious!.

What about energy consumption? Does this use a lot of electricity over the course of a year?
#29
We literally didn't buy a loaf from a shop for a year after buying our Panasonic. Fills the house with lovely smells and the range of different flours out there is quite large so a lot of experimenting with different combinations can be done. My tip is add Olive oil instead of butter to make an even healthier loaf, and I've never used as much sugar/salt as the recipes state - never found it makes much difference to quality or taste.

How long till it goes 'off' then? Does it keep well and stay nice and soft if put in cling film? Greaseproof paper would be more suitable I know but a bit dear I think (never bought it though).

It was my indecisiveness between the 254/255 which saw me purchase neither last year !

I could not really see the need for a seed dispenser, especially at a near 50% price premium, but I know that whilst I would normally just purchase the one with most functionality, my cost saving in going for the lessor model would be shown up in week one.

My guess is that I'll continue to not bother until I can justify the top model.

As for a cost saving, well my bread is around £1.30 for a fresh new loaf of farmhouse type but sometimes I have to drive to get one or go without. Perhaps not a real cost saving but I bet it does save money.

I don't like hard bread. How do you store the bread once it has been made? Does it need to go in a bag or just left in a bread tin?

Thats what I was asking but no one has replied. Wondering if it goes stale quickly as I'm sure the shop bought will have preservatives possibly? I'd love to try it though as fresh out of the oven/maker must be lovely.
#35
I picked up the 257 from Argos about 6 weeks ago for £119. oO however i did trade in £68 worth of Xbox games. (_;)
Sent the receipt off to Panasonic and in return they sent a hardback book "Simply Good Bread"
First bread maker we've owned and they are great.
Spicy fruit loaf is tasty, French bread is nice. bagels are good, granary loaf and rolls are nice. Chelsea buns were good. :)

A loaf does me 3 days. Would yours last this long?

I will get a machine eventually - but now I make bread, rolls, pizza bases, all at the one time, so I can fill the oven, then 30% of the freezer.
