Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

Steel construction. Easy-to-clean surface.
The Panasonic SD-ZX2522 is a high-end breadmaker with a wide range of programs. SD-ZX2522 comes with extra gluten-free options including gluten-free bread, cake and pasta dough. In addition, it can make rye, sourdough and brioche loaves, pizza and pasta dough, and jams and compotes.
One unique feature of the Panasonic is the yeast dispenser on top. This allows you to add the yeast at the best time, an option that other bread makers don’t have. The ability to add yeast without opening the entire lid makes for more consistent, fluffy bread.
The Panasonic SD-YD250 has an automatic yeast dispenser on the lid. You just add the right amount of yeast to the dispenser and at the right moment, it will release into the dough. Yeast is quite an important ingredient and turns bread from good to great when added at the right moment.
Speaking of pulling something out, the non-stick bake pan inside the bread machine has a built-in handle to ensure that removal of the bake pan is optimal and seamless. In having this, you don’t have to worry about burning yourself and you can bring the bread to your table much easier. Because of the way it’s set up, you can bring more to the table and save a bit of time.

What reviewers didn't like

No viewing window to check on bread as it bakes. Fewer settings than some other machines.
The Panasonic SD-ZX2522 Breadmaker looks sleek, with a shiny metallic oval body and a black plastic double lid, which also contains the yeast and seed dispensers. Due to the design of the lid, the machine doesn’t have a viewing window, leaving you guessing what might be going on inside.
One setting not included is a specific gluten-free option, which means more manual work if you’re using a gluten-free recipe.
We found a lot of Amazon reviews complaining that the Panasonic SD-YR2500 Bread Maker stopped working after a few months or less of use, and every single one mentioned that customer service had been unhelpful and unwilling to replace the machine. We don’t think it’s worth the risk.
The machine is a little tall and will not make traditional loaves.
One of the disadvantages is the recipe booklet; it’s imperative that we note it’s not the booklet itself, it’s just some of the units of measurement. Some have been confused at the way the flour is measured (in cups), so if you usually measure by scale weight, you’ll want to adjust accordingly.
