      Good machine for a family

      I got this to replace my old YD-150 which lasted 21 years. It has some nice refinements over the YD-150 as far as specifying types of bread or dough, loaf sizes and crust(light, medium, dark) BUT the crust option only works for "basic" white breads(I am not sure why). I also like the unique feature it has over ALL other brands.You put the yeast in a "holding container" on the top of the machine and it dispenses it at just the right time in the cycle which is especially helpful in delayed start times. So the yeast will not die because it was added incorrectly.Overall it seems to perform very well but I have only made a few loaves as of now. I have two observations that should mention: The blade has a lot more "play" in it's fit over the post that drives it and does not fit as snug as the last machine nor others I looked at. It may not be a problem but it MAY wear prematurely(only time will tell). The other thing is the the sizes of loaves are termed medium(around 3 cups of flour), large and extra large(a little over 4 1/4 cups.The old machine had two sizes and the large loaf was about the same size as the new medium(or smallest size recipe) Those are pretty big loaves for 1 or 2 people. Also my favorite recipes from the book that came with my older machine are not in this book. Thankfully I kept that book and did not toss it before getting this machine. Bottom line is this is NOT the machine for a single person but IS great for a family! Overall it seems well built and hopefully will serve me another 21 years as my last Panasonic did.

      Awesome Machine!

      This is the most awesome kitchen appliance I own! I had never made bread in my entire life, until I got this breadmaker. It is as easy to make bread, as it is to put something in my crockpot! You literally put the ingredients in, push the buttons, and walk away. Hours later you have fresh homemade bread! It is so simple to use. I have used my machine many times and have experienced no issues, whatsoever. I was leary about ordering one on-line, but they don't sell them in the stores, as good as this one. It was a great investment and is so easy to use. Making bread is really cheap, too! I love the delay timer. I can put the ingredients in the bread machine in the morning, before I leave for work, church, etc. and tell the machine what time to have the bread ready. It's really awesome! I can't imagine not having one, now! If anything ever happens to this one, I will be getting another one just like it. The automatic yeast dispenser and rest mode make the machine so simple to use. Your ingredients can be any temperature and you don't have to worry about the yeast activating too soon. It's great!

      This is my first time making bread, and it was a snap first time out! I've shared recipes with friends and tried a few of my own, and they've all been delicous (except one...but we won't talk about that one...). A couple things I've noticed: sometimes the ingredients overflow from the dough pan into the main shell during the kneading process. Also, if the bread is baked in the machine, it's a funny shape...but it still tastes great! Also, if it's baked in the machine, there's a small hole in the bottom of the bread...not a concern if aesthetics aren't your thing...besides, it's on the bottom and you're going to eat it anyway, right?

      Great machine!

      I bought this machine after viewing numerous bread machine reviews. This machine is highly rated, and after purchasing and using, I have to agree. I've never owned a bread maker before, but even with limited experience I have to say this machine is great. Very easy to use with a yeast dispenser built in. The only negatives are no sourdough bread setting, no window to view baking, and the machine is only available in white (I have a stainless steel kitchen and wanted to match). All that said, the positives far outway the negatives and I highly recommend the machine.

      Delivered on Thursday evening and following exact instruction started a loaf of bread on Friday. Extremely dissatisfied with machine. There is a very loud squeeking and banging during the kneading processes. I have used bread machine for years and have never had such a loud annoying noise as I do with this machine. I called Panasonic and was basically told to return it! I then called Best Buy and was supported and encouraged to bring back the bread maker! Good BYE to Panasonic....welcome Best Buy!

      The bread is wonderful.

      I am doing well with it but it is difficult to learn. The portions are unusual. It would be easier with a good kitchen scale but I use measuring cups and spoons. The part with holds the heating element separated but I have pieced it back together and it is holding. The bread is fantastic. I am working on translating some of my favorite old bread machine recipes to this one.

      What an amazing product! I've had it for about three weeks now. I've only made the basic sandwich bread so far. It is so simple and just takes minutes to put the ingredients together. Four hours later you have delicious sandwich bread, and it is really good toasted! Will begin making whole wheat and nut breads next week. So glad I purchased this.

      Our original Panasonic worked beautifully for many years. It died just before Christmas. We ordered a new one. It arrived early January. It worked fine for about 2 weeks and then started sounding like it was falling apart. We took it back and we now have a new one. We hope it is as good as the first one,! The next question asks, "would we recommend to a friend?". The answer is a qualified yes based on this review.
