Panasonic SD-2501WXC Breadmaker Review
Due to consumer demand, the Panasonic SD-2501wxc breadmaker, now comes with its uniquely programmed setting, for baking rye bread.
The predecessor of the Panasonic SD-2501wxc model, the 2500wxc Panasonic breadmaker, had one gripe and that was that it wasn’t suitable for making rye bread. The updated Panasonic SD-2501wxc breadmaker does that and a whole lot more.
What’s great about the machine is how simple and fast it is to get started home baking. Right out the box, the instructions are crystal clear on how to get started, and you could have your first loaf baked within a few hours of your bread maker arriving at your home.
Panasonic SD-2501wxc Baking Process
- It uses a simple 3-step bread making process
- Add yeast
- Add dry ingredients
- Add liquid
That’s how easy it is to get started baking your own bread at home, with this Panasonic bread maker.
Quick Note: The above method for baking bread with the Panasonic SD-2501wxc model is ideal to use on the time delay function.
The dry ingredients help to keep the yeast protected from the water until the unique ingredient dispenser, automatically adjusts the ingredients to knead the dough, and then bake the bread. Just ready for you getting up in the morning, to cut yourself a few slices of freshly baked, delicious tasting bread.
As you may already know, the yeast is extremely sensitive to water and activates on first contact.
The Panasonic SD-2501wxc uses its unique automatic dispenser to add and mix the ingredients at the right time, so that your yeast activates when it’s ready to bake, and not before it.
Best Features of Panasonic SD-2501WXC
Three loaf sizes
One of the downsides to the Panasonic breadmaker is that it’s very sensitive to the ingredients you put in, so you have to get your weights spot on.
To help you get the perfect loaf the first time round, it’s best to use strong flour. The measurement you’ll need for each different size of loaf is as follows:
- Medium: 400g Flour
- Large: 500g Flour
- Extra Large: 600g Flour
One great aspect of the Panasonic SD-2501wxc breadmaker is that it has a non-stick coating that actually works. As soon as your loaf is baked, just turn it over and let the bread slide out onto a baking rack to cool down and it’s ready to serve.
There’s no messing about trying to prise the loaf out of the tin, only to find that once you get it out, it’s looking pretty dire.
You get a perfectly shaped loaf, every time, with the Panasonic bread maker.
Tip: A common problem with bread makers is the paddle becoming stuck. Don’t’ use anything metal as that can cause abrasion to the surface. If you need to prise the paddle out, use a wooden chopstick or something similar to prise out the paddle, without scratching it. This happens with all machines, so it’s not a unique problem to the Panasonic bread maker range.
For those of you with smaller kitchens, you’ll find that this Panasonic bread maker might be too large for your kitchen. It is a collusive size and the height as well is quite like a tower, rather than a small kitchen appliance. You will need plenty of worktop space for the Panasonic bread maker, and under cupboard space could be a problem.
