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!!

This machine seems well-made and fairly easy to use. Unfortunately I could see it would not meet my needs (making dense multi-grain loaves and experimenting with different recipes) and I returned it without trying it. The baking time for some recipes is extraordinarily long--5 hours. I think this product would be fine for someone who just wants to turn out a basic loaf of home-baked bread once in a while.

About Me Casual Cook
Comments about Panasonic Yeast Pro Automatic Breadmaker:
this bread maker is so easy to use. I purchased after a neighbor made us bread on Thanksgiving. She has this same model and has been using it for about 13 years. She let me borrow hers and I was sold on it. I had to get one for myself.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Does the job
from Austin, TX
Really easy to use, makes very good bread. You may need to change some recepies they recommend to get good quality bread, but that seems common. Can only do preset programs with some flexibility. Sometimes makes some noise. Very satisfied withit so far though, it's pretty good at making bread.
Awesome Product but hey it's a Panasonic

Delicious breads and I recommend using all milk in the recipes. Healthier bread alternative to store bought breads.
from Houston, TX
I have been using it twice a week since I got it, three weeks ago. The machine is very quiet and its bread comes out with an excellent texture. So far, I have only tried white bread and I am very happy because it comes out a lot moister than other bread maker's. Also, the french bread comes out unbelievable. I have never tried a better french bread coming from a bread machine.
from salem, oregon
really easy to use, and makes great bread. only down side is that it is a little noisy during the mixing process.
Good report for Panasonic Breadmaker!
from Topeka, Kansas
First loaf, the yeast dispenser worked but left some yeast behind - residue. After another couple of uses, it clears or dumps all the yeast now.The Instruction booklet is very compact with lots of condensed info - but really good - and I couldn't use the breadmaker without it.
Service and delivery comments:
ABT is great. Couldn't ask for better service, notification of shipment, etc. They are super!

Very good bread maker. Never owned a bread maker before and bought this one based on the good reviews. The only thing we've had to modify is the given recipe for bread to get a less dense loaf. This is a great machine and would recommend it to anyone!

Abt delivered this promptly and it was well packed. I've just used this machine once, and the loaf I made was smaller than expected, but it came out wonderfully. I had owned a Panasonic breadmaker for 11 years, used it often, was pleased this model was still available. One question: on the warranty registration card they ask for a serial number. I cannot find that on the machine.
Merchant response: The serial number it typically found on a silver and black label located on the side of the bread maker.
from ROCHESTER, NY
I PURCHASED THIS PANASONIC AFTER READING ALL THE POSITIVE REVIEWS ONLINE FOR IT. I WAS INTERESTED IN MAKING TWO LOAVES OF BREAD WITH IT SO I WOULD NOT BE MAKING BREAD DAILY. I ONLY USE IT WITH THE DOUGH FEATURE AND NEVER HAVE BAKED IN IT. I MIX IT IN THE BREADMACHINE AND THEN TAKE IT OUT WHEN THE DOUGH CYCLE IS COMPLETE AND THEN GET TWO LOAVES FROM THE XL LOAF AND PUT IT IN A GREASED BREAD PAN AND LET IT RISE FOR 3O -40 MINUTES IN A PREWARMED 200 DEGREE OVEN AND THEN HEAT THE OVEN TO 350 DEGREES AND PUT IT BACK IN AND BAKE IT FOR 30 MINUTES AND GET THE MOST DELICIOUS BREADS USING THIS MACHINE. THE ONLY NEGATIVE THING I COULD SAY ABOUT THIS MACHINE IS THAT THE DOUGH CYCLE IS SO LONG. IT HAS A REST TIMED PERIOD RIGHT WHEN YOU PUT IT IN AND THAT DELAYS THE WHOLE PROCESS. MY OLD MACHINE STARTED MIXING IT IMMEDIATELY AND I LIKE THAT BETTER BECAUSE IT IS READY QUICKER. OTHER THAN THE DELAY START, I LOVE THIS MACHINE AND LOVE THE LARGE CAPACITY IT HAS FOR LARGER FAMILIES OR FOR PEOPLE WHO WANT MORE THAN A 1 LB. LOAF AT A TIME. GREAT MACHINE!!!!
SDYD250: 5 years old, still going strong
from Twin Cities
For our four-person family, we use our bread machine a lot: at least 3 times per week. We've owned several over the years, and the SDYD-250 has been by far the best. Yes, it's somewhat noisy, but it makes terrific bread, and it's very forgiving: you can (within reason) eyeball proportions and get good results. It produces excellent dough, both for rolls and pizza. It's easy to operate and fairly easy to clean. I unplug it and use a vacuum attachment to get at the dried crumbs in the deep reservoir. In sum, this machine has been consistent and reliable. And durable! We are very happy with it.
