This BMT-1000 is VERY quiet Except the time the dispensing tray is working. It makes short noises when dispensing, like 4 sharp click sounds within 4-5 seconds, this is the reason I gave it 4 stars...I would love to but don't usually, reserve the bread to be done next morning as my husband and I would be waken up easily by the 'click click' dispensing sounds in the mid-night even it's only a few seconds. We live in a condo with an open kitchen...maybe if your kitchen is far enough away from your bedroom or if your kitchen is not an open kitchen, and maybe if you're a heavy sleeper, the short click sounds probably will not bother you. Otherwise, most of time it's VERY quiet. (Just to compare...actually, I bought Panasonic YD-250 first but it made far terrible loud noise, like the machine would break apart any minute, very noticeable, very annoying. I returned YD-250 after 2 days trying, I just cannot stand the noises it makes...not sure if I had bad luck with it or what, but it got me to think the investment on a better quality machine, something I've always heard good about it from googling Taiwanese home bakers).
The bread quality:
I mainly bake whole wheat bread (function #12)... Just a few clicks, BMT-1000 makes yummy soft wheat bread, so easy!! I usually add raisins, cranberries, walnuts,and/or cashew nuts (I would crush the nuts into smaller pieces) using the automatic dispensing tray. Occasionally I would substitute some weight of water to an egg (egg+water=same total weight) . Over a few tries, adding an egg makes the whole wheat bread with nuts/dry fruits a prettier, taller look (whole wheat bread is generally shorter than white bread), however, my husband could taste the egg in the bread and he isn't really liking it. :P . I've also tried function #4 white bread and it's even better...well, of course, white bread is always fluffier and softer. But be honest, the whole wheat bread is very tasty from this machine. :D . I will be slowly playing with other bread settings and probably learning to use it to make doughs for more complicated breads ;) The other 2-day owned YD-250 made me a hard whole wheat bread that I ended up throwing it away...
This machine makes small loaf, but it's fine, just suitable for my husband and I to finish within 2-3 days.
The look: At first I'm not sure if I like the color because my kitchen is very white and I actually prefer something white or silver but this sits pretty on the countertop. It's slimmer than my imagination and does not take up much countertop space. The handle makes an easy lift to move. The display window is easy to read.
Transformer: I live in Hawaii and I have been using it without a transformer. It's working great. I unplug it while not in use
The price: Yes, it's way more expensive than the cheap model YD-250 but it's worthy. I don't know why Panasonic does not have a line of higher performance bread machines in USA but the purchase on Amazon makes it possible. The shipping was much faster than I thought it would be.
The manual: Unfortunately, this imported product didn't come with English manual...Fortunately I read Chinese so I downloaded the manual from Panasonic Taiwan site. As some already mentioned, you probably could find English manual of a similar product on Hong Kong site.
The cleaning: a breeze.
However, it seems all machine breads have very short softness live (I mean, they get dry easily just over 1-2 days no matter how I wrap it in a bread container) so we always try to finish it within 2-3 days upon produced or we will store it away in the freezer. The thawed bread actually doesn't taste bad if frozen as early as possible. We would make panini or toast some drier taste breads and they'd be good. I'm going to experiment with some techniques 'the sponge and dough" or "Biga"....hopefully I'll succeed and will be able to make the breads stay fresh longer. Cheers~
I printed off the English version of the manual from the Panasonic Hong Kong website, as recommended by another reviewer. It is important to note that there is not an exact correlation between that manual and the manual for this machine. Some of the program numbers are not exactly the same, but it is easy to compare the picture on the English manual to the picture in the Japanese manual to find the correct program. Once you've used it a few times, you'll find you don't have to think too hard about it. I find I've also gotten pretty good at identifying the symbols for teaspoon, tablespoon, water, and yeast.
It has been easy to use, and easy to clean, and looks great sitting on the counter. The loaf is a good size for 2 people. If you have a larger family, you might find yourself using this daily. It takes on average about 5 hours for a loaf to bake, and for the last 45 minutes or so I get to smell that wonderful fresh bread aroma filling the kitchen. I love that I'm using actual baking components - yeast, flour etc rather than relying on a commercial bread mix.
I did purchase a converter so that it would have the correct wattage conversion. I didn't want to take the change on breaking this rather expensive machine.
This machine also came with a pretty nice set of oven gloves.
Regarding the bread maker itself: we've used bread makers for 25+ years. This one is replacing a "domestic" (i.e. "English") Panasonic SD-YD250. After checking several web sites and reviews, it became clear that this BMT1000 is one of the top, if not the top model. Sadly, not available in a "US/English version" I decided to give the Japanese version available here on Amazon a try anyway. It is an amazing machine. And now, with my complete English operating instructions, a little easier to use.

At beginning, it didn't make the good bread because my yeast was too old. After I changed to new yeast, never failed.Read more
