Does it leave the mixing paddle in the bread? Mine does and I end up with tasty bread with a massive hole after I take the paddle out.
We use ours about 5 or 6 times a week. I would buy another without hesitation, repetition, or deviation.

My paddle has always stayed in the bread maker after I tip the loaf out. I have to soak the tin afterwards for a minute before I can pull the paddle out.
I have a Panasonic and it is fantastic! Best breadmaker I have ever used.

It is a small paddle so it doesn't really bother me.
great gadget i have got one too and bought a spare/replacement as well on amazon deal of the day previously as we use it so much, makes great dough for naan, ciabatta and pizza.

Thx, I'm thinking of getting this breadmaking as it has program for spelt bread. Does Panasonic let you know in any way it has finished mixing so the dough can be transferred to a pan?
Any good for sourdough bread please?

Mine beeps maybe three times every 15ish second until the stop button is pressed.

Great baker. Use it all the time. Pizza dough from it is great too

I have tried but the proving time is too short. I use the machines dough function, tip it out and let it prove in bread tin then cook in a normal oven.

What's different between this one 2501 and more expensive one 2511, please?
It's been this price for a few weeks. I've been price watching as bought one last week for a birthday present. I bought the 2502 model

It cooks it all for you so you shouldn't need to transfer it to a pan. There is a dough setting though that doesn't cook if you prefer.
A steal....!

I paid £70 for the 2511 last year, so I don't see this as that great a deal.

This is actually one of the highest, if not the highest, price this has been posted on here at.

For those who have one and those considering, I use mine 4 to 5 days in a week - I highly recommend the Sandwich Loaf setting (select number 12). It is hidden away in the manual for some reason. I'm not a fan of crusty bread and this setting ticks all the boxes:

1. Put 350g of strong wholemeal flour and 50g strong white flour into the pan.
2. Add 1/2 teaspoon measure of salt and 1/2 teaspoon of muscovado brown sugar, pour these in at the inside edge of the pan.
3. Add 15g of butter, corn oil or olive oil (I use the latter).
4. Pour in 310ml of tap water around the outside of the pile of flour, leaving an island of flour with water around it like a moat.
5. Make a little ditch in the middle of the flour island* and carefully add 3/4 teaspoon of dried easy-bake yeast.
6. Select Sandwich Loaf (number 12) then press go.

This takes all of 2 minutes to prepare, and in 5 hours your kitchen has an amazing smell and a perfect loaf of bread. You can time it so the smell of freshly baked bed wakes you.

*this is so the yeast doesn't touch the salt before mixing, preventing the bread from rising properly. The more expensive models have a yeast dispenser which makes a series of loud clicks as it drops the yeast in at the right time, but you really don't need it.
Great looking design for a bin next to the toilet; just needs a foot-operated opener.
I can recommend the Panasonic bread makers over all the other makes. I have used others before getting my one several years ago and it outperforms all the others when it comes to the finished result. If I am in a hurry I use the Tesco crusty bread mix and bake on the rapid setting. I have never had a bad result yet.

If you manage to get them for £7, get me a few.

Whether you get them or not, does not change the fact that this is not a very good deal. People just vote blindly on this site with no idea what's a good deal or not. Just type Panasonic bread maker into the search box and compare the prices this has been posted at, and will be posted at again.

Why not just put the yeast in first, as recommended in every recipe in the manual.

If someone wanted to buy this particular Breadmaker right now then my post might help them find the cheapest price. Tomorrow I expect the price will be higher again like it has been for months. I appreciate the fact that 9 months ago it was cheaper, thank you.

Oh yeah, maybe that is the better way. I actually have the yeast dispenser one, and reasoned that if you manually put yeast in first then it will mix with the water too soon, which is more likely to affect the bread than the water mixing with the salt and sugar.

As I'm sure you know, it 'rests' for about the first hour to allow all ingredients to get to the right temperature before mixing. This isn't necessary if you put all ingredients in at room temperature, but there were a significant number of people putting things in too cold and returning the machines because their bread wouldn't rise properly, so they force the hour rest. Understandable in the grand scheme of things but it's a pity you can't override that as the sandwich loaf only needs 4 hours.

Wouldn't that make getting yeast wet slightly more likely (from water seeping through to the yeast) than if you put it into a dry ditch at the top of the flour island? Maybe the reason is to stop the yeast being exposed to the air, along with keeping it from touching the salt?

So it would be just as effective if the salt was put in first and yeast in ditch on top? The auto yeast dispenser drops it on top of the mix.

No idea. But the easiest way is to just put yeast in first and be done with it. That's why the instructions tell you to put yeast in first, if you don't have a yeast dispenser obviously.

I don't think it was ever disputed that they were fine. The issue is that it's much easier and quicker just to dump it in first. Instead of making moats and wells etc.
