Do you have this bread maker?

Good deal. I can see a few cheaper prices around but all are more than this when delivery added.

£92.50 at John Lewis for the Warranty people.

£119 at Argos, silly price.

What if someone doesn't want the seed dispenser?

I'm not sure if he owns one or just being generous with other's cash. I own the 2501 and the dispenser is not that useful. You can just wait for the machine to beep and you add the nuts or you could just add it from the start. Although Panasonic don't recommend it but I saw no difference.

Edit: he owns one

I'm getting the 2501 for Christmas, I love seeded bread and so do the kids, so should make use of the dispenser, but some wouldn't, my MIL hates anything other than white bread, so this would be fine for her.

Statements that just presume to know best for everyone get on my nerves. lol

I just throw the seeds/nuts/fruit in at the start, never bother waiting for it to beep or whatever, still manages to make a perfect seed/fruit loaf every time.

I do this with both my older panasonic with gluten free recipes and the new panasonic with normal bread recipes, personally can't see the point of the dispenser, I'd not be able to fit the machines in my cupboard with the extra height either.

If you want to add pretty much anything - raisins, nuts, dried fruit etc, or think you might like to try this anytime in the future it is worth paying the extra 15 or so quid.
The 2500 makes great bread, it is just that you are limiting yourself in the bread you can make.

If you want a breadmaker, Panasonic is the one to buy. Great price. I was happy paying £100 for mine. Money well spent.

You can do this.The benefit of the dispenser is that anything you add will have less chance damaging the non-stick surface of the bread tin. The tins are ridiculously expensive to replace. Did your old tin have a teflon/non-stick surface?

LOL everybody thinks they know what's best for everyone, including me ..
I have the 2501 but the 2500 has nuts option, it beebs midway and you add the nuts, but like I said you can choose the normal option and add nuts from the start.

I put mine to work at night, so without the dispenser I would have to add them at the start.

I am not advocating the 2500 for everyone. Just pointing out that if you are going to pay £85 for a breadmaker, it might be worth thinking about paying a few extra few quid for the extra options it gives you.

But you can still choose the nuts options and add nuts when it beeps. Not saying it's ideal for everybody but you're making it seem like the 2500 has no nuts options at all!

I have the 2501 and from my experience, it didn't do any damage.

People should buy what makes them comfortable, they are both good bread makers.

Merry Christmas

Word of warning, if you are buying the breadmaker purely for gluten free then do not waste your money on the 2501 upgrade with the seed and nut dispenser as this function is not available on the gluten free programs.

Apologies. I was a little curt with my first comment. I should have prefaced it with "In my considered opinion..etc". I wanted to let the others here on HUKD know that there is another very similar model, yet with more features for a bit more money, and that in my opinion the 2501 is the one to go for (for most, yet not all, people).

Both tins are non-stick and none show signs of wear (the 2500 has been in more or less daily use for 12-18 months), but for that matter neither of my old Morphy Richards bread machines showed any sign of wear on the tin, that's after around 5 years of day in day out use, before being replaced by the 2500 (my other bread machine came from Freecycle, so no idea how old it was before we got it).

I do tend to stick to bigger seeds, pumpkins, sunflower etc., with the occasional sesame and poppy, but even these smaller seeds cannot get trapped under the paddle, which in reality is probably the only way you could do serious damage with a seed.
