Panasonic SD-ZB2502BXC Bread Maker, Stainless Steel

Special offer

Product information

Wake up in the morning to the smell of freshly baked bread, with the Panasonic SD-ZB2502BXC bread maker.

Finished in an appealing stainless steel and with cool-touch housing, this new Panasonic model features a useful 13 hour time delay, so you can set it to bake overnight in time for your toast the next morning!

Unique to Panasonic, a yeast dispenser has been incorporated into the SD-ZB2502BXC: this useful addition drops the yeast at the optimal moment, for perfect bread every time. There is also a raisin and nut dispenser that automatically adds additional ingredients, meaning you can leave this machine to bake without having to think about returning to add ingredients.

The angled control panel is easy to use, and this appliance easily caters for particular dietary requirements, including gluten free, low salt and high fibre. Dedicated regular and rye paddles ensure that every type of loaf is kneaded to perfection, while a rapid bake option produces a basic loaf in just two hours.

As well as offering 3 sizes (medium, large and extra large) this Panasonic appliance has 9 versatile modes, including:

  • gluten free
  • whole wheat
  • rye
  • French and Italian breads
  • sandwich bread
  • pizza dough
  • and a speciality mode for various grain and flour types such as spelt flour.

The SD-ZB2502BXC bread maker’s unique non-stick bread pan and kneading blade are coated with diamond particles, to ensure you will be able to easily remove bread from this unit once cooked. This coat is also twice as tough and scratchproof as conventional coats.

This bread maker has talents beyond bread, too! A jam and compote mode makes for quick and easy preparation of spreads.

Q & As

Panasonic SD-ZB2502BXC Bread Maker, Stainless Steel 4.8 5 164 164
Unimpressed I have used this bread maker for the second time today to make a loaf. Both times the loaf has not risen fully, and the first time didn't even take up the whole of the loaf tin. The main problem is that the loaf is raw in the middle, the sides are crusty but the top is not - I'm following the instructions but am I doing something wrong? 22 November 2014
Makes wonderful bread At first I was fed up with how complicated this seemed after the much simpler bread maker I’d had for almost 30 years. But once I’d discovered you do not really have to use the separate compartment to add seeds – you can just put them in with everything else, and I had marked a plastic measuring jug with the weight of the flours I use - so no messing about with scales, and had chosen just a few regular recipes, of wholemeal and of white. I have found this bread maker to be excellent, and I have to admit it does make much better white bread than my old machine. Especially white bread on one of the long-times programmes and using extra-strong white flour. The bread then is as good as very expensive loaves from fancy bakeries. I do think, though, that it’s big and ugly. I’ve solved that problem, when it’s not in use, by hanging a pretty tea towel over it. 22 November 2014
Excellent Just received my Panasonic and today tried it out for the first time on the fast-bake setting. In 2 hours I had a lovely, crusty white loaf. I made soup whilst the bread was baking and what a delicious lunch we had - home-made soup with simply the best home-made bread. Can't wait to try all the other breads now. 09 November 2014
Super Bread Maker Lots of options and presets on this great-looking machine. Collected from our local Waitrose and made first loaf of bread within 18 hours of ordering it online as we couldn't wait any longer. Looking forward to experimenting during the winter weekends. 08 November 2014
Great breadmaker Even better than last two owned and better result. 07 November 2014
Not a foot wrong So far tried a few different things and all worked out just great - must be the easiest thing I have used bread turns out good all the time. 04 November 2014
Excellent This is a really superb piece of kit. Easy to use and clean, it makes great bread every morning day after day. It also makes excellent dough for rolls. Initially I followed the recipes carefully but it is very versatile and responds just as well to all sorts of variations. 25 October 2014
Brilliant Should have bought one years ago ! I only received this yesterday and have made 2 perfect loaves already, one wholemeal one granary and they are delicious cant wait to do some more recipes 16 October 2014
