Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Julia W Good enough
The machine has the basic function to me. But I'm looking forward to buy newer model to make more dessert.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dikyparesh Healthier alternative to better testing bread. A+
First, this is an excellent product that serves awesome loaf of bread one after another… Highly recommend this product and we are very happy with it.
Bit more details… we are family of four and used to spend sizable money in buying better quality breads from Wegmans and they makes great breads and many variety of it, but after a while, it was getting expensive so after much research and review we bought this machine last year. I know nothing about baking and I was nervous about it, but since first day of use, it won us over on how easy it is to use, consistency of breads and reliability. We’ve tried few different breads, but mostly we bake about 2-3 types of bread about 2-3 times a week. So far… 200+ loafs. We are at the point now that our kids don’t eat store bought bread any more.
We haven’t tired baking fancy breads, cakes, jams or other baking goods in it and reading online, other brands seems to have more features and functionality so I can’t comment on how this compares to others…, but we are for sure very happy with it and recommend this product. Last months, we purchase two more of these for a family member and so far… they are enjoying it…

we bought this as a mutual gift for the holidays and have had it for three months now. the bread is excellent and as long as you follow the directions closely, it comes out perfect. we looked at other bread makers and decided on this one based on the reviews. after 90 days of use, i'm glad we picked it.

Me and my family enjoy the smell of fresh bread in the morning and the timer delay function allows us to wake up the the wonderful aroma!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Peter Just to have old Panasonic Breadmaker for 10 years
but decided to go with a newer model since the pan on old one after 10 years was start chipping. got this model..one year later after warranty expired of course, KNEADING BLADE coating come off! Yes I do bread weekly, but I did that on old machine for 10 years as well. Quality is not the same as old one fr sure.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by breadedcod Not as good as the SD255
We had to leave a 240V Panasonic SD255 behind in Europe when we moved continents and hoped to pick up a new machine of similar specs here.
This particular model is roughly analogous to the SD255, but has a smaller program range to it for baking. It also has the *supremely* annoying habit of dropping open the nut dispenser on *every* program.
What this means is that heat escapes out of the oven via the open flap, ultimately leading to an unevenly cooked loaf. Quite why Panasonic would need to have such a marked difference in the machines operations is a mystery to me. Yes the flour types are different on the N American market (although not that much), however this still doesn't explain such an inane engineering choice.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Neogranny Happy with results
Pros: It's much quieter than my previous breadmaker. I am very pleased with the texture and even consistency throughout the loaves, especially after I tried bread flour instead of regular flour. I also appreciate how easily the loaf slides out of the pan when finished.
Cons: Sometimes flour stays in the corners of the pan when mixing, but I have good results if I manually scrape the corners with a rubber spatula while it's resting during the initial mixing. I wish there were more recipes, especially whole wheat.
