    I can vouch for the SD2501. It is also very highly rated on Product Review.

      Are there much difference between 2501 and 2512 to justify for paying that much extra?

      Edit: comparison of the Panasonic models

    Panasonic bread makers are the best. I have one for a few years it’s still going strong

    Stupid questions time.
    What ingredients do you need to make loaf (white or whole meal loaf)

    And any guesstimate of cost of ingredient per loaf?

    •  

      These guys make great bread mixes. Everything you need is included. Most supermarkets will have them. https://www.laucke.com.au/our-products/Barossa-Sour-Dough-Ry...

        This is OZBARGAIN, Costco 20kg sack of flour, salt, oil.

        Make your own starter…

        Bread is the simplest of shit you don't need a premix :'(

    •  

      The basic ingredients are covered with water, yeast, sugar, salt, flour, and oil (all will vary by recipe). So if you buy in reasonable quantities costs could be well under a dollar per loaf for white bread varieties.

      Regarding other breads, costs are higher as whole wheat and other flours are more expensive, so it depends on pricing and availability. I'm not sure about cities but regionally I can only buy whole wheat in 1kg bags which is rather poor value. And in that case, the bread mixes start to become comparatively decent value (particurly when on sale) given they provide the harder to find flours, include things like seeds, and are generally closer to a store bought loaf in texture than a simple homemade loaf as they contain the improvers that help overcome the difficulties with making lighter loaves out of heavier flours.

        In regards to yeast, does it have short shelf life because its live? So you have to buy in smaller quantities?

        • +2 votes

          You can keep dry yeast in the freezer for years if it's reasonably fresh when you buy it. You'll know when it's too old as it just won't perform, but no reason to toss it until it stops performing and it'll usually last years past best before date. Ambient won't last as long past expiry depending on storage conditions but same idea. So it's safe to buy a reasonable amount like a jar/tin instead of the expensive sachets, but you don't need much so the larger vac sealed bricks are usually too much unless you really get into it.

    Whats the difference between this and an oven?

    • +11 votes

      You can't boil water in a bread maker. Hope this helps.

      You just put the raw ingredients in and it does the rest - you don't have to knead or prove the bread or worry about timings. Whereas an oven only does the baking.
      I have the white version of this and it's fantastic. I actually did a fruit loaf last night, family enjoyed fresh fruit toast for breaky this morning!

    don't want to sound like an idiot but this also cooks the bread right?

    • +1 vote

      Yes. Kneads, proves then cooks (bakes). You literally put yeast, flour etc in, press start, then a few hours later you lift out a perfect loaf of bread when the buzzer goes off!

  •  

    Thanks for this OP. I've been waiting for a price drop for a while!

  •  

    Can I use this machine just to knead dough?

    •  

      Yes

  •  

    Nice, thanks OP. What's the difference between this one and the older SD2501?

    Got one thanks!

    Now just need a milk maker and I won’t have to go to the supermarket ever :)

    •  

      Has anyone had any hands on experience with this machine? Trying to figure out if it's worth upgrading from the 2501.

      I've been reading reviews and comments the last half hour and they seem very mixed. I like the idea of a crusty loaf, but not if the inside is very dense and some of the crust burnt.

      Also while it does have a recipe website that's community driven and has some rye and sourdough recipes, it doesn't sound like it has specific settings for them and also doesn't come with a rye paddle.

      •  

        Done more reading and found this good write up below as I tend to mostly use Laucke bread mixes.

        https://www.laucke.com.au/bread-machines

        Sounds like this machine isn't really suitable for their mixes and isn't a good upgrade over the previous models, just a different machine for a different purpose.

    We're on our 2nd Panasonic breadmaker and use it at least 5 times a week so I can recommend this.

    How long does the bread last?
