Making whole grain bread with bread machine, is easy to do and worth the little extra effort. I make all sorts of breads with my bread machine. I love making my own breads, they taste so good. I make wholegrain, French, foccaccia, buns, rolls, ciabatta and more. I make them all with the Panasonic SD-YD250 bread machine. I have been using this bread machine for over 5 years. It makes the best bread of any of the bread machines in have ever used. It is truly one of my can’t live without kitchen tools. I have been making bread at home, with automatic bread machines for a many years. I have used a several different models and the Panasonic SD-YD250 is the best. It consistently makes tall and tasty loaves each and every time. The texture of the bread is light and flavorful, and there is nothing like homemade bread, it warms your heart and soul. The Panasonic SD-YD250 bread machine has a very unique feature, that puts it ahead of all other bread machines. This unique feature is the yeast dispenser built into the lid of the bread machine. It is a compartment on top of the lid, where the yeast is added. The SD-YD250 will release the yeast into the bread baking pan, once the bread ingredients are warmed up, allowing the yeast to work in a warm environment. Most other bread machines instruct user to put all of the ingredients in to the bread baking pan, all at once, including the yeast. The Panasonic Automatic Bread-maker, allows the bread ingredients to warm up first, making conditions very ideal for the yeast to work properly and as a result you will have the best made bread. The way it works is the bread machine warms up all the ingredients first, then automatically drops the yeast in to the bread pan. The cycle then, finishes normally and the bread is baked in the bread machine and comes out wonderful. The unit also comes with a timer so you can set it to have fresh baked bread for breakfast. Nothing like fresh baked bread, your family will love it. Panasonic SD-YD250 Bread Maker available to purchase in My Cooking Essentials. Panasonic Bread Machine
