Thanks to all of you who rated this bread maker. I bought one a year ago and use it to make bread and more so, home made buns. They are so soft and delicious & melt in your mouth. All my neighbors & family love them. The only downfall is it takes 2 1/2 hours to make a batch. I will also spend a day making buns and freeze them with my vacuum sealer and up to 2 months later they are as fresh as the day I made them. I have tried other bread machines. This is the Best, most reasonable, easy to use, easy to clean up Bread Machine out there. If you are a 1st time buyer, please don't hesitate. You will love it!!

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.

Comments about Panasonic Yeast Pro Automatic Breadmaker:
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.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

instruction problem re raisin bread
from Rochester, MN
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.

We have mixed feelings about our new bread maker. We like the ease of use but the results are not always the greatest. The last loaf we made we had to cut off one end because the ingredients were not mixed together. We made a loaf of pumpernickel and it had an extremely weird shape. You cannot count on a good loaf of bread every time.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
More Info, please...
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

Best Ever Bread Maker
By bread lady
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.

It quited working the second time I use it. Very disappointed
Ok, but too much time and noise
I am in love with my bread maker. However, I didn't think it was going to take 2 hours to make a simple bread. The machine tends to move like a washing machine and make a lot of noise when is mixing out... this is my first so i dont know if this is very usual.
Best Purchase ever
from Oregon, USA
I just do not have one complaint. It has been just "The Best". We bought this new one as a wedding gift for our grandaughter. Ours is quite old, but has never failed us, I use it a lot.
