Product Description

No need to live above a bakery to enjoy the warm aroma of freshly baked bread on a daily basis. Equipped with an array of user-friendly features, this automatic bread machine by Panasonic makes baking fresh, healthy homemade bread--and much more--easier than ever. Now anyone can enjoy the simple pleasure of freshly baked homemade bread--without the time-consuming efforts normally associated with kneading and baking bread. Just add ingredients, press a few buttons, and it takes care of the rest.

Size and color options
Choose from 2 loaf sizes and light or dark crust colors.
Easily Bake Bread or Create Dough

The bread maker mixes, kneads, rises, and bakes bread in two loaf sizes--medium and extra large, plus offers crust color control with light and dark options to accommodate individual preferences. Its digital control panel with a large easy-to-read LCD display makes it simple to select the loaf size and crust shade, as well as the baking mode. Choose from five different modes: Basic, French, Pasta, Pizza Dough, and Bake Only. The Basic mode works well for a variety of breads, including white and whole wheat; French mode bakes up delicious French bread with a soft interior and crispy exterior--perfect for pasta night. Speaking of, Pasta mode makes several different types of homemade pasta dough--there's nothing quite like homemade pasta. Use the Pizza Dough mode for creating homemade pizza dough in just 45 minutes, or use the Bake Only mode when it's time to bake a cake for a birthday celebration or delectable tea breads to serve with tea when visiting with a friend.

Variety of Baking Modes

Various modes for baking bread or creating dough.

Even more, the bread maker allows for baking a variety of white or whole-wheat bread for slicing and slathering with butter and jam or for making healthy sandwiches to put in the kids' lunches during the week. Or, make bread dough for shaping by hand and baking in the oven. The versatile machine produces delicious results without the additives and preservatives found in store-bought brands.

Best of all, the bread maker comes with a programmable timer that can be set up to 13 hours in advance, which means it's possible to wake up in the morning to the smell of freshly baked cinnamon-raisin bread. Or set the timer before leaving for work in the morning so that a warm loaf of rosemary bread will be ready and waiting after a long day at the office. Simply slice it up and serve with dinner.

Automatic dispenser
Automatic raisin dispenser removes for easy cleaning.
Unique Raisin & Nuts Dispenser

The bread machine also provides a unique dispenser that automatically drops up to 5.29 ounces (150 grams) of raisins, dried fruits, or nuts into the bread dough at just the right time for thorough, even distribution. When compared to other bread machines, the SD-RD250 turns out loaves with an even scattering of raisins, instead of a clump in one section and bare sections elsewhere. The handy dispenser can also be removed from the machine for convenient washing between uses.

Innovative Design for Professional Results

Unlike other bread machines, the unit does not offer a viewing window. The absence of a viewing window creates a more even reflection of heat inside the unit, which offers the following three advantages: excellent crust, good rising, and even color.

Healthy and Nutritious
Removable pan

Baking bread at home allows for ultimate control over the finished product. By using only the freshest ingredients and making choices from a variety of options, homemade bread can be an important part of a well-balanced diet--for both young and older family members alike. High in fiber and low in fat, bread contains a wealth of beneficial components. It provides complex carbohydrates needed for energy, protein for strong muscles, and vitamins and minerals, including calcium and iron for healthy bones and teeth. Add nutrient-rich eggs to the recipe or choose whole-grain flour for an extra boost of fiber, iron, vitamins, and minerals. Mixing in nuts and dried fruits not only add to the pleasing consistency and taste of the finished product, but they're also another way to add to the overall health factor.

Durably Built with Diamond-Fluorine-Coated Baking Pan
Removable pan
Diamond-fluorine coating on scratch-resistant baking pan for enhanced durability.

The bread maker provides an inner bread pan with a generous loop handle for easy removal (use an oven mitt when hot). The rugged pan also features a diamond-fluorine coating for even heating and scratch-resistant, long-lasting use. In fact, the hard diamond particles, which cover both the surface of the kneading blade and the bread pan, are twice as hard as fluorine resin for unbeatable performance. For added convenience, the pan's nonstick interior ensures effortless food release--dough removes without sticking to the pan and fully cooked cakes and loaves of bread slide out smoothly from the pan and onto a cutting board for slicing and serving. The pan's nonstick coating also makes cleanup a snap.

The small appliance comes in a slim, compact design that takes up minimal space on the kitchen countertop. Keep it out for everyday use or store it on a shelf or in the pantry when finished. Awarded the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval, the 550-watt automatic bread maker measures 14.6 by 11.1 by 12.8 inches and carries a one-year limited warranty. Accessories include a measuring cup, measuring spoon, and recipe booklet with great tasting ideas for getting started.

I have made several loaves of bread now and every loaf comes out great.

Being somewhat big on whole wheat bread, it's disappointing to find out this machine can only handle 30% whole wheat whereas most other competitors have that capability to make 100% whole wheat including gluten free bread. What's really puzzling is the fact that Panasonic UK has 2 breadmakers that were released the past few months in UK to handle 100% whole wheat. Called Panasonic USA customer service about the lack of this 100% whole wheat feature and was told this SD-RD250 machine is several years old and likely a new model may be coming out soon to include the 100% whole wheat capability as well as other features. They said they have received quite a few requests to have this 100% whole wheat feature included. Of course they won't say exactly when the new model with the new added features will be available. Since we are into 100% whole wheat, we've decided to return this product and wait for the new model. The other negative I find is the dispenser is simply too small to hold enough (e.g. raisins or nuts) for a medium size loaf, let alone a large or extra large loaf. Probably fine for a small loaf but there's no setting for a small loaf. It would be nice if the machine would provide a warning beep to allow the adding of raisin, nut or whatever manually. At least that way, you can add as much as you want.

We had a Panasonic for a little over 20 years and bought this one because the pan on the old one froze up. I didn't know at the time that I could replace the pan so we threw out the machine. BIG MISTAKE!

We baked only 100% whole wheat bread using the sandwich mode on the old machine and it turned out a perfect, soft and delicious bread. I contacted Panasonic after several failures with the new machine and they informed me that it will not do 100% whole wheat bread and does not have the sandwich mode anymore.

So...now we have a $200.00 dough maker that I use and I have to bake the bread in the oven in order to get it to rise properly and bake through. Every loaf I tried in the machine was heavy, wet and fell after rising. No amount of experimentation changed that. VERY DISSAPOINTING!!

Bottom line is if you are going to bake other breads it might be ok, I don't know. However if you prefer whole grains forget this machine.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
EDIT UPDATE: an XL loaf weighed 2 lbs 11.5 oz

I never thought that I would be so excited about an item but I truly was. I underestimated our technology because I didn't realize that you could now stick dry ingredients into a machine and a few hours later beautiful crusty soft bread pops out! WOW! Gone are the laborious & boring tasks of kneading, kneading, leaving to rise and eventually kneading again which would take away half of your afternoon. It just isn't great time management in our busy lives this day in age, to spend it preparing and baking a loaf of bread.

Hubby attempted his first loaf (ever!) the moment the box arrived. At first glance, the machine is on the large-ish side as I suspected it would be. You could leave it on a counter but if you are limited on space as we are it just wouldn't be feasible; unless you were truly making a loaf of bread a day.

There is an instructional guide with all the tidbits of info you may need on the machine's settings and problems that may occur with solutions. There are even a variety of recipes to get you started in the bread baking world. The machine's strong points are the fact that it will do all the work and provide you with a loaf of bread after a minimum couple of hours. I am very excited to try the pasta and pizza dough settings. As far as baking, I will leave that to my trusty oven. It is still a wonderfully feature packed machine that also has a fruit/nut dispenser.

We provided pictures of our first attempt at a loaf of Pepperoni and Provolone Cheese bread. The options selected were Bake Rapid, XL loaf & Dark Crust. The selected options took a total of 1 hour & 55 minutes. Preparation was 5 minutes including pressing the selected options mentioned above and the start button.

I've been making bread twice a week since I bought this bread maker six months ago. It's effortless compared to my previous bread maker. I bought this newer version of their popular bread maker, even though it had fewer reviews because it seemed to be just a newer versiondate and because I felt Panasonic probably tweaked their older model to improve the quality. Even though there weren't a lot of recipes that came with the bread maker, I've found that once I have made one type of bread successfully a few times, I could vary the basic recipe and still come out with quality loaves of bread.
With my machine, I found that I had to drop the amount of water by 3/4 of an ounce for a perfect loaf. I also altered the amount a yeast very slightly because I dropped the amount of salt in recipe (to decrease our salt intake in our diet). This is what I do to make sure I have a good loaf of bread:
Weigh, don't measure ingredients.
Use bulk white and wheat flour made for breadmakers...it seems to be fresher.
I melt my butter prior to measuring the amount.
I flour all dried fruits that I cut up to place in the dispenser so that the fruit doesn't clump up in the bread or stick to the dispenser lid.
Since I enjoy fruit/nut bread, I have increased the amount of dried fruit/nuts that I add for a loaf of bread. I can put up to 5 1/2ounces in a loaf without affecting the amount of rise in the loaf. Usually, I am only limited by the amount of space in the dispenser.
I always set an alarm to remind me to take the loaf out when it's done. Using the "light" bread setting, I often take the bread out five minutes early to get the lighter crust that I enjoy.
When baking a loaf, don't ever open the bread maker top to take a peak. The bread will be fine.
