Kitchen science do quidco to! They also sell the SD255 (the one with the automatic nut/raison dropper thing) at best price on net (using the code).

Excellent price, I aleady have one but would recommend to anyone.

i have been waiting for the price to drop, thank you. sorry i thought it was the sd255 been waiting for that to come down

Is the 255 better ??

Identical price since at least September (when I ordered)... still, at the time it was the cheapest too...

I've got the 255....its has a nut dispencer....which I think the 254 doesn't have...

Perfect bread each time.....on average I make about 2-3 loaves/brioche a week

It has nut/raisin dropper. Not worth much extra. Certainly not £20 difference in price



EDIT: Chori - Do you use the nut/rasin dropper?

Are bread makers cost effective?

The SD254 was reduced to £39.99 at Amazon 2 yrs ago so I bought two. Makes perfect bread everytime.

Not bad - say 50p a loaf but the benefit is fresh bread and many different recipes etc

Nope haven't used the dropper....yet...

;-)

For me, it's more about getting nice bread. No additives or preservatives. Just plain bread. Unless you use a fancy recipe, then you get just fancy bread :-)

Like Speculator I bought mine on Amazon for £39.99 having lusted after them at full price. Wouldn't be without it now, wonderful machine. I found the rapid bake option just produced flat bread, but I don't suppose it can rise properly in two hours.

Try using beer instead of water: you get a fantastic crust and the bread smells amazing, perfect in big chunks with homemade soup.

Can this make ciabatta ?

Amazing machine, best breadmaker I have ever used, never made a bad loaf yet!

I will wait for this £39.99 drop!

Good luck - That price drop was 2 years ago!!!!:w00t:

Hi I am another one of the £39.99 brigade - great machine and going strong! superb bread & pizza dough. Has never been this cheap ever again unfortunately!

There was the (better spec) SD255 at Costco recently for £57 - see ]here
Might be worth checking in your local store if you are a member as that's a much better deal. Good luck!

Dixons has it for £67.89 and I'll bet this is Dixons using Amazon's distribution and warehousing, just as M&S now does. Isn't there cashback on Dixons ? dixons.co.uk/mar…891

Price went up a little when heavily talked about on MSE but back to medium term norm of around £69 now.

This may sound a little daft but my kids don't really like crusts. Do the loaves that come out always have hard crusts like the supermarket instore baked ones or can you make them with the softer crusts like the mass produced ones?

There is a sandwich bake option that claims to do this, but I've never tried it because I love my bread crusty.

Never mind the kids, I hate the crusts too which is why I've never bothered getting a breadmaker! Sandwich bake option sounds interesting, will have to read some reviews on that.

I went to the Dixon's link and I also read the Reevoo reviews and one reviewer says

"Limited range of bread possible in the model e.g spelt or rye not possible".

So why can you not make Rye or spelt bread ??????

Thanks.

It's a cracking breadmaker, consistently the best rated, and can make a wide range of loaves, as per the manual:
dlc.panasonic-europe-service.com/EUD…DF&

The nut/seed dispenser in the SD-255 is a healthy extra and worth the additional spend IMO.

applehead;6904376

i've had the 255 for 2 years now and have never bought bread in that time! i wouldn't bother with the nut dispenser - i stopped using it and throw in seeds, nuts, fruit or whatever on top of the other ingredients right from the start. doesn't seem to make a difference to overall result.

you can select from 3 different crusts when baking.

You need the SD255 for that: it has an extra serrated blade for these flours, although I don't know why they won't work in the 254. It's a bit picky to say the range is limited though just because it can't cope with rye and spelt : wholemeal, white, brown, dough for croissants, brioche, pizza, naan, will do cake mixes, the list goes on. You can download the user from [url]www.panasonic.co.uk[/url] under 'support' to see what it can do.

Have you tried 'it will make your hair curly' line. I don't know why but that was what I was told back in the 70's.

Also got this for £39.99 two years ago:) Excellent breadmaker; still going strong and making top-notch loaves every time:thumbsup:

I really want to start baking my own bread but don't know if the bread is any good from a bread maker?

I remember my Mum had one and the bread used to come out really heavy and had a funny taste :shock:

Does the bread taste like it's from a proper bakery??

mulv2222;6908512

100% YES.

Doesn't it depend on the flour you use?

I would be interested to hear if people use flour + other ingredients or the bread mix instead

The bread mixes are not only expensive but seem pretty pointless when it is so easy and cheap to use your own ingredients. The mixes cost between 60p and 90p for 500gm All you need is strong bread flour [own brand 1.5 kg for between about 60p from Lidl to £1.20 in Waitrose], yeast [at about 60p for 6 sachets, each of which does about 5 loaves] a bit of salt and sugar and butter, throw them in the bread pan, add water and switch on.. Also that is all that is in your bread. I quote the ingredients of Hovis white bread mix:

''Wheat Flour, Salt, Dried Yeast, Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil, Emulsifiers (Mono- and Diacetyl Tartaric Acid Esters of Mono- and Diglycerides of Fatty Acids, Sorbitan Monostearate, Mono- and Diglycerides of Fatty Acids, Lactic Acid Esters of Mono- and Diglycerides of Fatty Acids), Improving Agent (Calcium Sulphate), Dextrose, Flour Treatment Agents (Alpha Amylase, Ascorbic Acid)'.

I rest my case!

I use a Tesco bread-maker and have tried all sorts of different mixes and flours. I tend to get the best results using flour and following the recipes that came with the bread-maker; although I do like to use 'granary' type mixes.
We found the lidl / aldi bread flour was equally as good as brand named stuff...

The only dissapointing results I've had (except for one or two extreme recipe experiments) have been using bread mixes...

Personally I wouldn't pay out the extra for this model. When my Tesco bread-maker dies I'll be looking to get somthing like the Panasonic 255 with automatic seed / nut dispenser.

I have the SD255. Amazing, it has a time delay option which is truly great, which means that you can time the bread to come out just in time before you get up and then wake to the lovely smell of fresh bread. :-D

Thanx for the insight. Yes one of the main points of the machine for me would be controlling what I eat.

If you want a breadmaker it has to be Panasonic - and at this price it's amazing value.

Hot, hot, hot!
