Any noticable difference between the SD254 and SD255? Need one for the old man's christmas present so this is perfect timing!
#2
255 has a raisin/nut dispenser.

As far as I'm aware this is the only noticeable difference.

Automatic dispenser is the key advantage of the SD255 - adds nuts, seeds, fruit etc mid-way through programme which means you don't have to be around to do it manually.

These are the best breadmakers out there, but anyone who's checked reviews will realise that.

The 255 has a timed release hatch to automatically add raisins, nuts, etc. 254 just has a beeper to remind you to add them. Also I think the 255 comes with an extra paddle for rye bread and something else.

the SD254 is a grade-A breadmaker, I love mine and it makes a fantastic loaf.

I've got the SD255 which has a nut/fruit dispenser for adding these ingredients later in the process. Otherwise they're the same.
It's an excellent machine. I use it every day. I think I paid about £90+ for the SD255 18 months ago. The SD254 was about £10 cheaper.
#7
Cheers guys didn't realise just how many reviews there were so that was lazy on my part! Raisins and nuts are far too healthy for our household so that's not a problem!

Just out of curiosity what ingredients do you need to make white bread? i fancy buying one for my wife as she's always wanted a bread maker.
#9
I've got a 255 and haven't used the nut dispencer thingy......

Fantastic bread.....I thought it would just be a fad but I use it 2-3 times a week!

Best bday present I've been given in a long time.

Just done my loaf in the 255

You need bread flour, salt, yeast (dry or Fresh), sugar, butter and last but not least water... very cheap way of making a "fresh" loaf :D

I got rid of mine.

The bread it made was so good I was turning into even more of a fat bastrad. Especially when it was lathered with blue cheese or peanut butter or lurpak... o dear.

Ingredients? Strong flour, yeast sugar, salt, water, butter. Five minutes to set it up, 4 hours to bake, 25 seconds to eat a whole loaf - damn it I'm salivating again...
#13
oh for those who are going to get one, when the loaf is done (by the beeping) remove the loaf from the machine and tin as soon as possable to let it vent the steam out of the loaf.. otherwise you will get one damp block of bread and it ain't nice (it also collapses in the middle as well)
#14
oh good i was just going to buy the same one in argos as its reduced to £67.89 so this has saved me abit more thanks for this

heat and rep added
#15
I make all my own bread in the SD254, the container for dropping nuts and raisins etc in the SD255 is too small. Shop bought bread is rough compared with the wonderful bread you get from this machine. Must go now I feel like a buttered crust.

1tsp dried yeast
1.5tsp of sugar, 1.25 tsp of salt
475g of strong white bread flour
320ml of water
25g butter

Yes, I do it often enough to know if by heart lol.

ADORE my breadmaker and it just saves me so much money - plus, it's fantastic for watching the amount of salt my kids have in their food. Have the 255 (bought it from ebay for £40 ;) ) and I absolutely ADORE it. Best thing I think I've bought all year.
#17
4 hrs to get it baked? how much does it cost you in energy, it must be pretty uneconomical to use
#18
Hot....if you buy one breadmaker...........buy a panasonic....they are brill....have had mine two years now and will replace as soon as it dies............can't live without one now .....;)
#19
this is coming from an amateur breader

how soon with this breadmaker + electricity costs + ingredients will pay for themselves compares to buying from the shop?

Only the last 45 minutes or so are for baking, the rest of the time, electricity consumption is minimal. The ingredients for a large loaf cost little over 30p, and maybe 10-15p for power.

At 2 loaves a week, I'd say 12 months at the most.

Got one last year. Found the bread not as good as I was expecting, and the thing froze on me twice.
Sent it back.

Its power rating is quoted at 550W, so a 4 hour cycle will use 2.2 kWh - so if you pay 10p per kWh that will cost you about 22p. It will probably actually be less than that, as it won't be on full power for the entire cycle.

Combined with the cost of the ingredients it's still cheaper than a fresh loaf from a bakery or the fresh section of the supermarket, but it's not going to be cheaper than a bag of extra value sliced bread (aka packaging foam).

The experience of most users of this range of bread-makers would suggest that you were unlucky.

Fantastic breadmaker. It is so easy to use and far superior than any other breadmaker out there. Have had a minor problem with the non-stick coating coming off the pan thingie (but this was after one year of daily use).
#25
This is a good bread maker. Got my SD254 in February 2008 from Amazon for £39.00
#26
looks great, got it 2 years ago, still in box, next to popcorn maker and icecream maker, if only tesco sold the packs you need

Why not sell them here or ebay then?

My January shopping list has a SD255 and a self-refrigerating ice cream maker. :-D

Has Panasonic patented a 'Beckham style' dough stirrer?

Why is this better?

The SD255 has start delay facility which makes it possible to time it so that the bread is made just before you wake up. :thumbsup:

you can just put the flour, yeast, butter/marge and water in, or you can buy packets with all the ingredients and add the water ( 2 for £1.00 from Asda)
#33
Have had mine one year and it's used 2-3 times a week. Want to say that the best bread flour I've found is Lidl's white bread flour. I use it with dried yeast.
It's on the timer overnight because I found that the bread is better when on the timer over 6 hours. Also, there's the wonderful smell to wake up to. Also, I agree that it needs to be turned out onto a wire tray straight away when ready and if the paddle comes away with the bread, my trusty long nose pliers do the trick.
ENJOY..........

The SD254 has the same timer facility. The smell of baking bread wafting up the stairs gets me out of bed early on a Saturday morning :thumbsup:

I bought mine 3 weeks after buying a Swan breadmaker as it was a bargain.
That's how good it is.

PERFECT loaf every time.

French loaf recipie. ( Soft, fluffy and light)

Yeast 1 teaspoon
Strong flour 400 gr
Butter 15 gr
Salt 1 teaspoon
Water 290 ml

Doves farm yeast from Tesco.
About 99p a pack is good.
Tesco own flour not so good.

Good luck.
ps. My bread is so good a friend has told me not to make any more for her as she can't stop eating it.

And I'm a bloke !
#36
The instruction book is for both models, as are the spare parts, only difference is the nut dispenser
#37
Bought this earlier on in the year courtesy of hot deals and this is the best buy by far, apart from the stella deals i have found.
Perfect bread every time.
Set the timer and you have warm bread first thing in the morning.

As may be - but twice in less than a week with freezing up wasn't impressive.
The taste of the bread wasn't as good as other breadmakers I've had bread from (which was the reason I bought it) and the ingredients used were from the more expensive end of the market too.

I got mine in the same deal and have to say it was one of the best buys I've ever made (for the kitchen at least).

The bread really is absolutely gorgeous and I've never had a failed loaf. I say this bit every time this comes up here but the Panasonic breadmakers are by FAR the best breadmaker out there. Various people in my family have tried others ranging from the budget models up to the higher end and all found them a bit of a let down. Most ended up getting one of these and have lived happily ever after...

I bought a cheap 'n nasty bread maker from Tescos a couple of years ago and it was pants. I tried and tried to make lovely bread but they were all just.......well sh*te really! I gave it away and unfulfilled in the breadmaking department, I got this breadmaker last week off Amazon - £68 odds (sods law!). I have to say that this is a fantastic breadmaker and idiot proof! I've made wholemeal, 50/50 wholemeal and white and also rapid bake white. All lush and all devoured within a matter of minutes. Also really pretty and perfectly formed when they're baked. Bad for the waistling but I make homemade soup every week and a fresh baked bread along side.....well it'd be rude not to.

The SD255 as far as I'm aware have the nut/raisin dispenser but these ingredients can be added to the SD254 45 minutes into the cycle of whichever bread you chose to add. The SD255 also can do Rye bread which needs a different paddle that the SD254 can't.

Nearly a tenner cheaper than I got it for a week 'n a half ago. Bargain and my new best friend. Don't hesitate, go'an - treat yourself - you know you want to. It's Christmas!!!! :D
