Finally, a way to bring back the taste of freshly Baked, homemade bread, without the tiring process that comes with baking it. Baking the perfect loaf doesn't have to be a beating task now that this easy-to-use product has Hit shelves. With an automatic yeast dispenser and 4 baking modes, your bread will rise and BAKE with just a touch of a button, leaving your afternoon free. Cleanup is even easier with the non-stick PAN! fill your kitchen with the familiar smell of fresh bread baking with panasonic's automatic break maker.
Providing myriad options, this automatic bread maker embodies the marvels of 21st century electronic convenience and choice. Yes, it mixes, kneads, rises, and bakes bread in three loaf sizes up to 2-1/2 pounds. But its digital controls go much further, offering settings for white, whole wheat, multigrain, and French (crisp crust, open texture) breads, each made according to what's best for that particular style. Other settings permit rapid baking and baking sandwich bread with a soft crust. For raisin (or other dried-fruit) bread, a beeper signals when to add the fruit so it's not crushed during kneading. Crust color--dark or light--can be selected as well.
The machine automatically adds yeast at the proper time from a dispenser on the unit's lid. It also bakes non-yeast, quick breads-- like banana and gingerbread--and sweet cakes. And it mixes, kneads, and rises doughs for pizza, focaccia, croissants, and other pastries without baking them. A timer permits the machine to be programmed up to 13 hours in advance so fresh bread or cake is available for breakfast or dinner. For cleanup convenience, the baking pan is nonstick. Clad in metal and packing 550 watts of power, the machine measures 14 inches wide, 13.5 inches high, and 9 inches deep. Its instruction booklet is exceptionally easy to understand and includes recipes for 40 breads and doughs along with an insightful guide to baking basics and illustrated tips for making pastries. --Fred Brack
From the ManufacturerThere's nothing quite like the warm aroma of freshly baked homemade bread from the oven. With the help of this user-friendly bread machine, even those with a busy, on-the-go schedule can enjoy this simple pleasure--without the time-consuming hard work normally associated with baking bread. Just add ingredients, press a few buttons, and it takes care of the rest.
Soft-touch control panel with LCD digital display and 13-hour preset timer.
Easily Bake Bread or Create Dough
Bake loaves of white or whole wheat bread for slicing and slathering with butter and jam or for making sandwiches. Create croissant or pizza dough for shaping by hand and baking in the oven. Make the classic fruitcake to serve during the holidays. From basic recipes to custom creations, the bread machine produces delicious results--and without the additives and preservatives found in store-bought brands. A recipe book with over 50 original bread and dough recipes comes included.
The unit's top-access, soft-touch, push-button control panel with an LCD digital display helps ensure easy programming. Choose from three different loaf sizes (medium, large, or extra large) and the crust color (light, medium, or dark). It also offers up to six different types of bread or dough options--Basic, Whole Wheat, Multi-Grain, French, Pizza, and Cake. Baking modes include Bake Only (great for fruitcakes, gingerbread, and teacakes); Rapid Bake (reduces the baking time of basic and whole-wheat breads); Raisin (offers an audible beep to signal when to add raisins, dried fruits, or nuts into the dough); and Sandwich (produces bread with a soft crust). Dough modes include Pizza, Rolls, and Raisin Dough. Best of all, the appliance comes equipped with a digital timer, which can be set up to 13 hours in advance--great for waking up to the smell of freshly baked bread. Or set the timer before leaving for work in the morning so that a warm loaf will be ready and waiting after a long day at the office. Simply slice it up and serve with dinner.
|Choose from 3 loaf sizes and 3 crust shades from light to dark.|
Healthy and Nutritious
Baking bread at home allows for ultimate control over the finished product. By using only the freshest ingredients and making choices between 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.
Yeast dispenser automatically adds yeast at optimal time to ensure perfect results.
Thoughtfully designed, the bread machine also supplies a YeastPro automatic yeast dispenser. Just add a measured amount of yeast into the holder on the unit's lid, and the machine will automatically dispense the yeast in with the other ingredients at the perfect time for optimal results. Even more, the unit's inner bake pan comes fitted with a wire handle (use an oven mitt when hot) for easily removing it from the appliance when the bread has finished baking. The pan's nonstick coating allows baked bread to slide easily out of the pan onto a cutting board or a wire rack to fully cool for easier slicing.
Inner bake pan offers built-in handle and nonstick coating for effortless bread removal.
Unique Design for Professional Results
Unlike other bread machines, the unit does not offer a viewing window. The absence of a viewing window allows a more even reflection of heat inside the unit, which offers the following three advantages: excellent crust, good rising, and even color. The machine also benefits from a unique temperature-control program that automatically optimizes the temperatures and times for each stage of the process. Its comprehensive microprocessor program makes slight adjustments as needed to ensure perfectly baked bread regardless of conditions like climate and room temperature.
Panasonic delivers excellent results regardless of different types of ingredients used, different seasons, and different room temperatures.

Top Customer Reviews
They are not easy to contact via phone. Automated voice on the line states that if product is in warranty you are entitled to a FREE customer representative call, otherwise you have to pay $9.99 for the honor to talk to them! This was of no help as after this announcement they said goodbye and the call was disconnected. At least they offered a free chat on their website which I used.
The customer representatives told me that I have to ship the machine to their service center. They have only ONE service center in Texas for the whole US. And shipping would cost me about $50. And there is no guarantee that after repair I would not have the same problem again.
This is not what I expected from Panasonic and I will never buy a product that might fail from them again. Instead of shipping the broken one for $50, I bought Oster bread maker for $60.
After a few more failed attempts at getting a decent loaf, I called Panasonic Customer Service and was told it had to be sent to their Customer Service Center in Texas for repair - an no, they do not pay or reimburse shipping costs to the center. I live in Georgia and Texas is the closest center. It cost me over $26 to send UPS (the cheapest method available). A couple of weeks later, I got a call from the center saying they could not repair it because they had no parts or replacement machines! They offered a refund, and the check arrived about two weeks later. No refund on the $26 shipping.
So we purchased an Oster Breadmaker and while it works fine, it doesn't produce the light textured bread or the high rise that the Panasonic did. It was about half the price of the Panasonic and gives you about half the rise in the bread. It's good, but uninspiring. We were spoiled by the outstanding quality of the bread (particularly the French bread) that the Panasonic machine produced - when it worked.
We decided to purchase a second Panasonic bread machine (same model) but this time we ordered it online from Walmart and added the extended warranty for about 20 bucks. So if this one breaks, all we need to do is drop it off at Walmart for repair or replacement, avoiding the shipping costs. I don't usually go for those extended warranties, but with the track record of this Panasonic model breaking and Panasonic's lousy customer service policies on it, I figure we'll end up using the extended warranty at some point. The new machine is working well so far. Honestly, the quality of the bread this machine produces is worth the few extra bucks we paid for the extended warranty. I'll just keep replacing it when it breaks.
We just purchased this machine and have made 2 loaves. The first was a Basic White loaf using the recipe on page 21 from the user manual and recipe booklet which came with the machine. I used the Basic Bake/Extra large Size/Dark Crust settings. (See attached Pictures) We were very impressed with the quality and taste of this fresh baked bread......with NO Preservatives. The second loaf we made was a store bought package of Sour Dough Bread Mix from a very good company called Seitenbacher. We selected Basic Bake/Medium Size/Medium Crust it also came out very well (see attached picture). I don't usually write such long reviews but this is a very visual detailed product with awesome results. I will end by saying the fact that all you do is add your ingredients into the bread pan, select the settings you desire, press start and THIS MACHINE does the mixing, kneading, allows the dough to rise for the precise amount of time and Bake the bread is absolutely amazing. Yes I will still bake hand shaped rolls, pizza, baguettes, and other breads by hand....BUT only after allowing this fine machine to mix, knead and proof the dough as the machine has that option. It is easy to use and so easy to clean. Just wash and rinse the bread pan and dough paddle, and measuring cup and spoon.
