We've had this machine for 3 years, and we're still using it at least once a week (for our household of 2 adults). I make organic spelt bread (Arrowhead mills) most often, but also make fabulous spelt pizza dough that my husband says makes better than ANY commercial pizza. We have trouble with wheat so this is a lifesaver in terms of budget (have you tried to buy all wheat-free?) and taste and texture that is second to none. And, it takes me 5 MINUTES to assemble bread. No matter it takes 5 hours 'til it's done, put it on when you cook breakfast and by noon you have it. Word of warning, though, if you're dreaming of having fresh, hot bread in the morning by using the timer and having it cook overnight, that might be the only dream you have. When it pulls in the yeast and while it's kneading it's very loud (not the whole time). We only made that mistake once. For daytime operation, the noise is not a problem at all. Another issue that has cropped up is that my bread started sticking to the sides after a couple of years. NOT a huge issue; I just use the oil the bread calls for on the sides and use a thin spatula to loosen it before dumping it out. I'd buy this unit again in a heartbeat, but in the interest of full disclosure, there it is. Oh, I also make spelt crackers from the pizza dough, too. Just roll it out nice and thin and bake 'til you can smell it. So, organic spelt bread, pizza, and crackers, all in 5 minutes to prepare. And, this will never go in a yard sale if we're still going strong with it after 3 years, right? BUY IT, you'll LOVE IT. Here's my recipe for Arrowhead Mills Organic Spelt Bread (Large loaf, Whole Wheat Bake settings): 1 tsp salt 1/4 c sugar 3 1/2 c spelt flour (dry measure, fluffed up) 1 1/2 c water (wet measure) 1 - 2 Tbl extra virgin olive oil (pour a little in) 3/4 tsp yeast Spelt Pizza Dough (Pizza Dough setting): 1 tsp salt 1 tsp sugar 5 cups spelt flour 1 1/2 c water 1 Tbl yeast Let rise outside of bread machine for an hour before rolling out and baking in cookie sheets. Heat oven to 475, put sheets in oven, turn down to 400 and bake 15 minutes or until bottom is brown and cheese bubbly.

I have only made 6 loaves of bread. The XL egg bread failed twice and the XL fruit nut failed. All three loaves looked like they were not mixed enough, did not rise, had very hard dark crust, burned on bottom. I used new ingredients and tested the yeast. I am very disappointed with this bread maker after purchasing it for the features and good reviews. It is one month out of warranty.

      We love this bread maker. Except for one small thing: When you use the quick bread setting the yeast usually partially misses the pan.

              We got this bread machine as a replacement for an old Welbuilt machine. The Panasonic is very well made, and makes an excellent loaf of bread. Very efficient at kneading the ingredients without any dry flour left over in the corners. The finished loaf slides out of the baking pan easily, and the mixing paddle doesn't get stuck in the loaf. Our only complaint is that the controls are not particularly easy to figure out without consulting the manual. After using the machine a few times, it is easy to do, but the initial settings require looking up "how to". Fresh bread daily is a great treat! The smell is fantastic, and the taste is exceptional. Very happy with our purchase.

                  I did a lot of research before purchasing this breadmaker. I originally was going to buy a more expensive brand, but reality set in and I chose this one. Glad I did! I works great. I've been using it for over a year now with no problems. And I've eaten tons of great, healthy bread!

                          I love the French bread this machine makes and bakes. The metal baking tray (dish?) is easily removed by its small metal handle and doesn't leak crumbs to the heating element (as my prior bread machine did). I also like the yeast being added later in the baking process by the separate compartment for it on top of the machine. This seems to improve the rising in my breads. The LCD and function selection display could be a little more clear when you are selecting " Bake" or "Dough", but that's a minor quibble. This is a very nice, relatively quiet bread machine.

                              This is my forth machine and my second Panasonic. I love it. I mostly make whole wheat bread. I grind my own flour. Most bread machines have trouble with fresh ground flour. Tha Panasonic gave me a perfect loaf the first time out. It works as well as or better than machines costing twice as much. I give it five stars.

                                  I love the taste of fresh homemade bread and so does my family. This is my first personal bread maker but my parents had one when I was younger and this holds up to that taste. The only disappoint I have is the rye bread recipe contains hardly any rye flour which is what my wife really wanted.

The instruction booklet also includes bread receptors. I haven't tried the yet but it's nice that it's included.

                                        I bought my first bread machine in 1992 and it was a Panasonic. It lasted 10 years. I then bought a Cuisinart and it only lasted about 2 years. Then. I got a Breadman and and had lots of failures. So I stopped making bread. Recently I got tired of paying so much for inferior bread and went looking for a Panasonic. So now I'm happy again. Bread, so far comes out perfect. My only issue was the fact that it is expensive.

                                                This is the only bread machine worth buying. It is so far superior to all the others, that there is little comparisons. If you want to only make a white bread loaf, any machine will give you okay results, but if you venture out of the white bread zone, and plan on using a machine, you will need this machine.

                                                    This is our second breadmaker; same model both times. We had given away our first one and then realized how much we missed it. There is nothing like the smell of baking bread in your kitchen. This machine makes all kinds of different loaves, and it's very easy. Just add your ingredients, press a couple of programming buttons, and come back in a while- bam- new loaf of bread, ready to go.

                                                      My wife and I are enjoying the bread maker and the aroma of fresh baked breads. The yeast dispenser and add fruit and/or nuts signal make this machine easy to operate. We were reluctant to purchase a bread machine until we read a lot of good reviews from different web sites. The only "con" we come up with is the lack of gluten free recipes. We understand with this model (SD-YD250), Panasonic was reluctant to furnish gluten free recipes but the web site should give links or recommendations while explaining the recipes are not supported but may be tried.

                                                      So far, so good - have only baked one loaf so can't yet vouch for other than basic white.

                                                          For baking raisin bread with whole wheat, a step is omitted in the instruction booklet. After selecting "bake raisin" and then "whole wheat" in menu, you need to return to "select" and REselect raisin. Otherwise this machine does not beep to say when to add raisins as it is supposed to. The reality is that even this way, you're better off adding them later and then kneading the dough yourself since the machine tends to smash up the raisins even when put in "after the beep." #I'm adding this in the hope that some Panasonic person will eventually read this.# Otherwise the machine does great. I've learned to use it to make tasty 100% whole wheat bread with far less sodium than anything that can be purchased. The alternative is NO sodium bread, which is as expensive as it is dry and tasteless. The instruction booklet doesn't say how to do this, but more importantly, the machine is altogether capable of this. King Arthur's website was essential for learning how.

                                                          I have owned and regularly used various bread machines since 1991. I have a long, wonderful history with my bread machines. I finally killed my last one and immediately went to the internet to purchase a new one. Absolute must have - only one beater. Your machine popped up as the best available. I wish there had been more information concerning the length of time to bake a regular loaf of bread! The waiting period at the beginning is totally new to me and way to long. A regular loaf takes 4 hours - I am used to 2 hours and 40 minutes! I have made two very successful loaves on the quick cycle. I have never had a yeast dispenser...don't think I will be using that feature. Any advice on skipping the long waiting period would be helpful. It is a good machine and I will get used to using it - I'm slow to change. Glad it can handle 2 1/2 pound loaves! Jackie Schnell

                                                            I bought this bread maker to replace the one I had (also a Panasonic) for 15 years. I am probably the only person on the planet who has used, and continue to use, my bread maker ALL THE TIME. I set aside a day for bread making. I bake them in the Panasonic maker, slice them and put in the freezer. I noticed the maker had come down in price, which was a pleasant surprise.

The recipes are easy to follow and even the "small" loaf doesn't fit into a ziplock bag. Last year I was lucky enough to find one at a yard sale for $3. I don't know what possessed anyone to sell it at any price,but I bought it before they could change the price. The trick is the automatic yeast dispenser.

I've been making bread machine bread for 20 years. One brand made good bread but it was really noisy. The pan seal degraded and the replacement pan cost almost as much as a new machine. The two other machines I bought lasted 13 months - exactly one month past the warranty. My Pana lasted 4 years. It still worked at the end. There was some leakage through the pan's rubber seal, (the weak point of all machines) but you could compensate by adding more liquid. We just wanted a new, completely problem free machine so bought the exact same model we'd bought before. With how long the machine lasts, it works out to be a great value among bread machines.

We began baking our own bread when we discovered our daughter had several allergies. The allergies are long gone but we still make our own bread. We make mostly wheat bread, and have tried several different kinds of bread and dough. The machine consistently makes good bread and dough. The included recipes we tried were quite good. This is the second machine we have owned. The first made hundreds of loaves over something like 8-10 years. The bread pan wore out and rather than buy a new pan, blade, and spindle, we chose to just buy another machine for about the same price as the 3 parts. The first replacement machine made quite a bit of noise and Panasonic gave us a shipping label and refund after one phone call. The second one arrived in perfect condition and works as well as our original machine.

I made bread from scratch so I saved money, compared to buying those packaged bread mixes. The yeast dispenser feature allows it to set up a timer so you can have bread hot when you want it. Very easy to remove the loaf from the pan. I can't wait to try different breads!
