What the experts say
BBC Good Food was really impressed by this Panasonic bread maker and had no hesitation in awarding it 5 stars. The dizzying range of programmes (32 in total) that cover everything from french bread to pasta to jam was a particular highlight. The individual yeast and seed dispensers were also impressive as they meant you could add vital ingredients to your dough at just the right time. Even the cups and measuring spoons that come with it got the seal of approval. It was easy on the eye too. The only con is the lack of a viewing window.
Trusted Reviews were similarly blown away by the Panasonic SD ZX2522 Bread Maker. They loved the range of programs, separate dispensers and the quiet operation. They also felt the end product was consistently impressive. Again though the lack of a viewing window took the edge of slightly as did the hefty price tag.
Another top score came from Expert Reviews who in addition to the points already noted from other reviewers found the SD ZX2522 easy to use and to clean. However, it was noted that it is pricey. It also feels quite bulky and takes up a fair bit of space. This wasn’t enough to stop it from getting full marks though.
