When you hear the name Panasonic you may automatically think of electrical goods like televisions and cameras but what about bread machines? Surprisingly, there is a small but very clever set of bread makers available that live up the the brand’s name and offer the chance to bake a range of different bread-based goods.
What features can buyers expect with a bread maker from Panasonic?
There are two products in this Panasonic range that are currently popular and they share many of the same beneficial features. These machines have been designed so that the user only has to put in the minimum of effort for a great tasting result; there are multiple bread options for a variety of styles, load settings to increase the quantity to extra large, and an LCD screen that displays all the relevant information clearly. Once the bread has been baked there are additional measures in place to aid convenience, such as the non-stick coating on the pan for easy cleaning and the built-in handle for easy removal. If this was not enough, the specification also boasts a “crust control” setting and each machine comes with measuring equipment and a recipe book with tips and great ideas.
What makes these Panasonic machines such desirable products?
A lot of the features that have been mentioned above may not stand out that much to avid bread lover but there is one aspect of these machines that really is special – the automatic dispensers. It is this dispenser that separates the SD-RD250 and SD-YD250, the former offering a tray for nuts and raisins and the latter providing one for yeast. What makes this feature particularly appealing is the fact that it does all the work for you. With many machines you have to wait until exactly the right moment to manually add extra ingredients, or hope that it will give you some indication, but with these models there is no need to wait around and you can be sure of an accurate bread-making process.
This feature is the main difference between the two models that are currently popular but there are some other differences such as the shape and design – the “raisin” model being available in grey – and the produce options. Unsurprisingly, the SD-RD250 is equipped with cycles for cakes and other breads while the SD-YD250 has a pizza option. Prospective buyers who are looking for a versatile machine may also be interested to know that there is new model currently available on Japanese import. This SD-BMS105-SW apparently has much broader capabilities, with the ability to make jams and brioche, and it also comes with mittens and a blade for noodles.
In short, when you buy a Panasonic bread machine you can expect a high quality machine that provides convenience in a way that few other brands can offer. Whether you choose the automatic raisin dispensing model or the one for yeast, you can be sure of a user-friendly machine that practically does everything for you and makes a great loaf with the crust of your choice.
