I've tried many different bred maker. Now I stir my dough in a bowl and bake in my oven. Better shaped loaf and no holes, not even small holes with removed paddles. Bread making is actually very easy. I make mostly continental rye bread.
I have never pulled it out and never had a problem, mind you I only use this small one for dough so no baking, the Panasonic is fine with the paddle left in.
Take the paddle out before the final rise - you get doughy hands but the dough comes out good. That’s what I do anyway (embarrassed) (embarrassed)
Really good for dough making - if a bit noisy - but I fell out with it over the paddle being left in during the bake - the bread around it overcooks and ruins the loaf for me..
I bought this to keep in my camper van for use with the Ooni, noisier and slower than the Panasonic I have at home but great value and the dough is just as good (y)
It can not cool down in few seconds as you’ve ironed a shirt. It the same like corded iron which is on/off due to thermostat, otherwise would burn...
The product would be so much better if it was battery powered, the moment you remove it from the base, the cool down begins so you have to keep replacing it. The convenience of not having to worry about the cable is replaced with the inconvenience of having to dock the iron to heat
Great iron, got it for more than half a year now, no problems at all. Don’t bother about this light/return to base reviews. Just put it to base between your clothes adjustment.
You didn’t think to return it? If you bought it last year, you may still be able to. (y)
I didn't buy this last year so don't know if it leaks

Fair point. What I meant to say is: "since the 1990s, all of its manufacturing is now carried out in the Far East." They used to be about British factories. You paid more for a Morphy Richards (or a Swan) kettle because they could be repaired quite easily, they stood the test of time and they did what they did, well. There was plenty of market share for them to continue that. Just look at how many people are prepared to spend ~£100 for a Dualit kettle - and they don't even specialise in kettles, toast's their game. It's just sad, that's all. The nation used to want to dip their British made McVities in teas brought from across the globe, steeped & brewed in British water, boiled in a British kettle with a dab of British fresh milk.
There not chinese they only manufacture in asia along with 99% of every other electrical brand in retail
Exactly this. I do this every morning. Nice to wake up to a coffee ready to take on my commute. The unit does feel very light at first and it is fairly basic but this is a Good price at £16.
glad i read this review , was just about to buy it
Pair this with a smart plug and you can get it to make coffee ready for when you wake up. I use paper filters on top of the supplied filter for a better taste
If you don't trust the reviews, why are you directing people to read the reviews?
stec77: I’m thinking of going onto a carnivore diet, so how would this cook beef and pork joints, maybe a chicken etc. They're great for meats especially since they make they really soft and tender though but I think it's for your saucey meals like stews mostly its not really for cooking a tomohawk steak, people use cheaper meats
If it really is only a 3 litre capacity, it is expensive at this price.
I had a 3 litre air fryer (tower) which was excellent, but just upgraded to a rotisserie and it's fantastic. All the benefits of the old air fryer and so much more. amazon.co.uk/dp/B07X2LRVS3/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_glc_fabc_GYDGNHF76J830H3RQEF6 Currently £114 on a deal. I picked up a used very good (never opened) for 75.
I used to work for an electronic company too, always knew when a sale was coming 🙊
Mate I used to work at Curry's , I know how they do there prices
On the 12th March it was £109.99 and same on Amazon. Only know because my older model (480001) broke after 5 years and had been looking replacement. Though ended up getting the Breville Halo Air Fryer on Amazon for £90 (currently OOS) and don't regret it. https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B0891QH88B/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
thanks :) the Panasonic SD-ZB2502BXC at currently £101 is still cheaper than other Panasonic,so not bad if the quality of bread good :D
Had the 253 for a number of years.. then we decided to try a newer model from Lidl and Aldi... also tried a cheap one from argos - all went back and we just got a new Panasonic SD-ZB2502BXC, the bread is so much better, and it feels way ahead on quality of build. But to be fair it was over twice the price...
u have one, which one then? :)
Tried a few cheap ones... Just bite your lip and get a Panasonic, always a great result
Have this model, paid same price. Very happy with it. Way better quality than that "tower" rubbish. Silent too and easy clean.
I had the 480002 - I never got on with it. Everything took ages to cook unless they were really small portions and I ended giving it to my kids when they got their own house. They seem to like it but I wouldn't buy another one.
QUOTE - The extra-large 3-litre capacity has enough room to cook up to six portions at once. I think that might be stretching things somewhat. 3 litres is medium-to-small (not large.) Compare the Cosori range that offers two sizes - 3.5 litre and 5.5 litre. As to price - £80 ain't a bargain for an ordinary 3 litre air fryer with 'digital' controls. Its double what my same-size one cost at Aldi! Incidentally, I really don't see any sense in providing a 'delay start' timer on these devices. It adds user complexity to no good end. Just because the tech could do it doesn't mean it is a sensible feature! Nobody should load it with frozen nuggets before they go to work and hope to find them perfectly cooked on their return! Most things need a shake or rearrangement during cooking. And best results seem to come from an ad hoc 'give it another couple of minutes' (or pull it now, turn it up/down) approach - particularly when cooking something for the first time.
plus you get 2 year guarantee with currys... ebay 30 days .. think about it ....... you might learn something one day...
"factory second" with possible means second hand returns
Just a heads up that it's back at this price again 11 04 21
Thanks - we’ve used our old one to death so it’s time to replace, but tbh would prefer the stainless steel one anyway. It’s a big price difference though if it’s just on looks!
Really want this but have already got a slow cooker that works so can't justify it ;(
Only difference is how it looks and the capacity otherwise its the same, I have this one and its great its just looks and don't be fooled by the rose gold part the whole body of its plastic, but its great and I love it.
Does anyone know what the difference is between this and the stainless steel one that’s cheaper? Is it just aesthetics or does this one have additional functionality?
