Non-stick is coming off pan and paddle which makes getting the bread out tricky (and cleaning) but replacement pan is £50, so will keep going until it blows up...


We've got through over 40KG of flour during lockdown with our SD255 which is a similar age. It stopped kneading properly about halfway through this time, but I did some research and found out that the motor start capacitor probably needed replacing. It cost me £5 for a new capacitor and about an hours work taking it apart, soldering in the new cap and putting it back together again. It's working like new now. Details are here in case any has a similar issue with an an old Panasonic...

Fantastic machine. Panasonic is only brand you want for these. My parents have had theirs for around 12 years and still going strong. But is this a reduced price - Thought this was standard? Worth it though!
Have same machine, perfect bread every time unlike previous 2 breadmakers I've had. If anyone needs my standard recipe for large loaf it's
600g Aldi bread flour
2 tsp dried yeast
2 tsp salt
2 tsp sugar
25g unsalted butter
415ml water , not cold , not hot, but under 30 degrees or it'll stop yeast working.
Programme 1.
Yeast always in first, liquid always last.

How much is the overall cost of making the loaf (breadmaker cost aside)?


I buy my bread flour from Lidl for 55p for 1.5kg. I get just over 3 loaves out of it making the 400g loaf.

I buy the tins of Allinsons yeast for £1 for 100g. You use a teaspoon or less per loaf so it lasts ages.

Other than that I use salt, sugar, oil/butter that I always have at home anyway. Then water. Sometimes I might add milk or milk powder but not often.

So...as you can see, it can be very cheap to make.

If you want a breadmaker one of these is the thing to go for - although personally anywhere but from this seller.

I paid £70 for the model up from this. Don't see the deal here.
Please can someone tell me if this is (1) a good deal for a bread maker and (2) a good deal for this model.

Does anyone know if you can get lining paper for this? It would seem like Lakeland used to do a size that fit this, but it's discontinued.

I have a bread maker but switched to using dough hooks on a hand blender because of the issues with holes in the bottom of your bread.

Worth as a present.

Lining paper for what?
We have had our Panasonic for at least 15 years used 4+ times a week.
Love sourdough bread and considering getting my own breadmaking so I can make it anytime also imagine the smell in the house hmmmmmm

Is the loaf pan aluminium?
From years of using several brands of bread makers before getting a Panasonic I have to say that nothing comes close to the Panasonic machines. I often use bread mixes and add cheese, walnuts or raisins for variety. I guarantee you will never regret buying one of these.
imhappy24/07/2020 22:43

Don't know but it has a non stick coating.
Had one of these for years, every couple days make a new loaf, 3hrs later fresh bread. Also delay feature so can have it ready for the morning. Great machine.

For the bread pan. E.g. this;

amazon.co.uk/Lak…JRU

It's because I ferment the sourdough in there for 10-12 hours... It would probably react with the pan if I didn't have a liner in.

Depends on how much you spend on ingredients. I reckon it's around 75p per loaf if you buy stuff in bulk (16KG flour, 500g yeast, etc.)

Ahh, ok. I've never seen a liner for the bread pans. Liners are usually used in loaf tins that you put in the oven. Plus the bottom of the bread pan is where the paddle goes. When the paddle is not in it, there is a pin that it attaches to that is fixed in the pan. My Panasonic Bread Maker has sourdough bread settings. They don't ferment the bread for 10 hours though. You might be better off just using the bread maker to do the dough then transferring it to something else to further prove, ferment and then bake it in the oven.

I used to do that when I made focaccia but became effort to take the machine out etc, counter productive when you want the machine to do all the work.

A large loaf uses 600g flour. I use shipton mill at £1.30 per kg. So flour cost is 78p. You will also need salt sugar and yeast, but they will be pennies. Also about 15p worth of butter.
So all in less than a pound for a large loaf. Well worth it in my opinion. Less than five minutes to weigh out, put it on a timer so you have a fresh loaf in the morning. We got ours on eBay six months ago and must have made 100+ loaves. Loaves are so much nicer than any supermarket bread. Also use it for pizza dough which is ready within the hour. Banana bread is another frequently used recipe and you can bake a passably healthy(ish) version!

Brilliant, thanks for the advice. We've also got the SD255 as well for over 10 years, makes lovely bread in the morning.

For those comparing the cost between making your own bread and a shop bought, the difference is probably negligible, but knowing what ingredient goes into your own bread is more important for us.

My wife keeps telling me that put the yeast and salt/sugar (?) at the bottom first before the flour helps the dough, not sure if that is true, but certainly her bread is better than mine 😁
We bake fresh bread overnight in the machine.
Also bakes a fine fruit or banana bread. We use it alot for pizza and olive bread dough prep as well. Probably the best £70 we ever spent.

If you use fresh yeast never allow the yeast and salt to come into direct contact. Salt causes the yeast cells to rupture and will kill it. Some machines work best with placing the flour in the pan first, others with the water first, whatever the case, do keep salt and yeast separate from one another, especially if you are using a time delay on the machine.

No, put the yeast in first, then the flour, then the salt, sugar, butter, flour improver (if using), then the water. I pour the water onto the butter so it sits on top of the flour. This is more important if your doing a delayed bake overnight, it's less important with a rapid bake loaf as the programme starts mixing as soon you press start.

Fair enough. I understand. Out of curiosity, what is your experience of using dough hooks on a hand blender like please? I've got dough hooks for mine but have never ever used them. I keep assuming that they won't manage the dough. Do you have success with them? Are they ok with stiff dough?

Overall, very good. I mix the dough together by hand to prevent flying ingredients then let the hooks do the kneading. I stop at 4-5 mins to give arms a rest, but generally only take about 7-10 mins.

Usually buy Asda bread flour at 60p for 1.5kg but they have been out of stock for weeks. Never shopped at Lidl, but after seeing your post decided to have a look, picked up a few bargains including 4 bags of bread flour, 6kg for £2.10. Will try it tomorrow, thank you
Great machine. I’m finding mine isn’t rising very high recently, resolved by switching off to let rise for longer then giving mode 15 a whirl. But would like a proper fix!
